A list of officials from the Obama administration who sought to “unmask” President Trump’s former national security adviser Michael Flynn was released this week.

The latest revelation has Republican lawmakers calling for hearings as Donald Trump says this week’s developments prove the Obama Administration used their power to damage his presidency. Democrats have called the story a ‘distraction’ and many Americans are understandably confused by all the details and allegations.

Earlier this week, host Jessica Rosenthal took a look at the controversy and some of the accusations being made against President Obama and his justice Department. One of the guests she spoke to was former assistant U.S. attorney Andrew McCarthy.

The Fox News Contributor offered some perspective on the case, explained the practice of “unmasking” and broke down the complex timeline of the Flynn investigation and the origins of the Russia probe.

The interview was too long and we could include a small portion of it in our original segment.

On The Fox News Rundown Extra, you’ll hear our full interview with  former assistant U.S. attorney Andrew McCarthy and get his take on what President Donald Trump is calling “Obamagate.”
