A former deputy assistant to the president and chief of staff of the National Security Council says the Joe Biden administration needs to answer a couple of key questions about the “unmasking” of Fox News show host Tucker Carlson. Carlson’s name was acquired by the National Security Agency in some of its email spying, and then given to someone in the administration, who then leaked it publicly. That is just wrong, Fred Fleitz wrote at the Federalist, and someone needs to be giving some explanations. He explained, “The leaks to the press of NSA collection of Tucker Carlson’s electronic communications suggest the Biden administration either did away with the Trump administration’s rules on unmasking requests, or is ignoring them. In light of this obvious partisan abuse of a U.S. intelligence agency, Congress must press the Biden administration to answer several questions about the Carlson matter.” Those questions include who made the unmasking request, and will that person be held accountable for leaking classified information, as well as does Biden have a policy on demands by senior officials to unmask the names of Americans.
