If an official reviewing the report wants to know the identity, the official can request that the agency that collected the information "unmask" the name.

The press conference came after Nunes reviewed classified documents that he says he got from a secret source.

In January, the Justice Department and intelligence officials agreed on new rules giving more US agencies access to raw information picked up overseas by the National Security Agency. As Andrew McCarthy points out, "the thing to bear in mind is that the White House does not do investigations".
