National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster does not believe his predecessor did anything wrong by asking for the names of Americans caught up in surveillance programs to be revealed.

Bloomberg's Eli Lake cited two U.S. intelligence officials as saying McMaster has reached that conclusion regarding Susan Rice, who worked in the Obama White House. She came under fire earlier this year after it was revealed Americans' names were unmasked in surveillance reports.

There are concerns certain members of the Obama administration — including Ben Rhodes, who served as deputy national security adviser — abused their power and used the unmasking requests to spy on members of then-candidate Donald Trump's team.

A Circa report this week claimed the number of unmasking requests spiked last July when Trump became the Republican nominee for president, after he was elected in November, and again in January before he took office.
