The Justice Department probe into Obama administration officials accused of “unmasking” President Trump’s associates, including one-time National Security Advisor Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, has reportedly ended without criminal charges.

The Washington Post reported late Tuesday evening that a report of the investigation would not be released, according to sources familiar with the matter.

The Daily Caller reports:

Attorney General William Barr earlier this year tapped John Bash, the outgoing U.S. attorney in San Antonio, to investigate whether Obama administration officials abused the process for requesting intelligence reports on Trump associates.

The inquiry began following the release of a document that showed that 39 officials in the Obama White House and other federal agencies requested intelligence reports that had information about former national security adviser Michael Flynn.

Among those officials was then-Vice President Joe Biden.

U.S. officials routinely submit so-called unmasking requests in order to better understand intelligence reports. But Republicans have suggested that the Obama officials intentionally made requests for reports that mentioned Trump associates. The Republican theory was that government officials may have leaked negative information about Flynn and other Trump associates to the media.

It is unclear if Bash investigated the Obama officials’ rationale for requesting intelligence reports that mentioned Flynn and other Trump associates. Biden has been asked about his unmasking request during one interview and denied any wrongdoing.

Barr is as useless as Sessions was! We need an AG with some balls who is not bought and paid for by the stinking Dems!

I agree – I knew we would never get any indictments on all those scum in the Obama Administration. Just a waste of time and taxpayer money!

Unbelievable and no explanation or clear public statement why there is no criminals charges against these criminals.

They probably spied on Barr too and have something to blackmail him on. If I were Trump, I’d put Flynn over the FBI and CIA and give him free range to clean up those cesspools.

Keep this in mind, NSA and others linked to them, are spying on all of us. Not for terrorism but because they can . Our presidents are the Commander in Chief of these deep state groups and can ask them to surveille any of us. Make up a dubious story, ruin our characters, get us fired from,our job, and tarnish us for good.
Blackmail of politicians is rampant but us teenie weenie citizens, not sdo much. We are just a bug they can stomp on.
