In 2016, 1,934 American citizens identities were ‘unmasked’ under Section 702 of the FISA Amendment Act.
Former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper informed the Senate Judiciary Subcommittee on Russian interference in the 2016 election that 1,934 America citizens were “unmasked” by intelligence officials in the last year on Monday.
“However, there are cases when, to fully understand the context of the communication that has been obtained or the threat that is posed the consumer of that collected intelligence may ask the identity of the U.S. person be revealed,” Clapper explained to the committee.
Clapper goes on to explain that the identity of the person in question is only revealed to the person who requests the information, not to any other officials.
Clapper concludes by telling the committee: “In the interest of transparency, my former office publishes a report on the statistics of how many U.S. persons identities are unmasked based on collections that occurred under Section 702 of the FISA Amendment ACT…and in 2016 that number was 1,934.
