#1 The idea that unmasking US citizens took place even earlier than the current brouhaha is not unlikely.
There's enough anecdotal evidence showing that eavesdropping info on Israelis was used during the Iran nuke deal; the possibility that US citizens as well were unmasked is high.
It's not far-fetched to assume that the tactic was used as far back as 2008.

#3 As I recall Sen. Dianne Feinstein bitched about Obama spying on members of the Senate as well--it seems to have been de rigueur for O's corruptacrats. Trump needs quit being on defense and to go on offense.

Same thing he and his people did back in Chicago.
