READ: List of Obama officials who sought to 'unmask' Flynn

The Trump administration on Wednesday sent Congress a declassified list of Obama-era officials who they say requested documents that led to the identity of former national security adviser Michael Flynn being "unmasked" in intelligence reports.

The officials, who include former Vice President Joe BidenJoe BidenAppeals court OKs White House diverting military funding to border wall construction Federal student loan payment suspension extended another month Pentagon: Tentative meeting between spy agencies, Biden transition set for early next week MORE and other top members of the Obama administration, requested the information from the National Security Agency between November 2016 and January 2017. Flynn was the anonymous subject of intelligence reports.

The list is likely to add to escalating debate over Flynn's case. Flynn in 2017 pleaded guilty to lying to FBI agents, but the Justice Department has recommended dropping its case against him. He currently awaits a judge's decision on whether to drop the case or move forward with sentencing.
