There are a lot of people who actually think that there are actually no rules on wiretaps, whether the so-called Title III wire taps requested by law enforcement or the now famous wire taps authorized by the FISA court. Law enforcement wire taps have requirements to “minimize” what is intercepted to only conversations germane to the investigation. FISA has more stringent provisions if a US person is swept up in a FISA authorized wiretap.

When it was first revealed that Mike Flynn had had conversations with stealth Russian ambassador Sergey Krislyak, the Washington Post said his conversations were confirmed by nine current and former government officials despite the fact that Flynn’s identity should have never been known, i.e., it should have been “masked,” to anyone other than a very select number of people associated with that particular wire tap program and, based on the facts in this case, it never should have been revealed.

House Intelligence Chair Devin Nunes is making good on his promise to go after who ever leaked Flynn’s name. In a letter signed by Nunes and ranking member Adam Schiff, the heads of the CIA, FBI, and NSA are asked to identify all requests made for unmasking identities of US persons intercepted under FISA.
