Kimberly Morin reports that it was probably no surprise to find out Obama’s failed national security adviser Susan Rice is somehow behind the unmasking of Trump transition team members. Rice is known for lying on demand with a straight face.
It seems that more and more keeps coming out about Rice’s involvement with the entire debacle that began as an investigation to see if Russia interfered in the presidential election, but has turned into a three-ring circus. It seems Democrats are actually the ring leaders of this circus, not Putin.
The Daily Caller is reporting that Rice actually asked for and kept a detailed spreadsheet of phone calls intercepted between Trump and foreign nationals:
“What was produced by the intelligence community at the request of Ms. Rice were detailed spreadsheets of intercepted phone calls with unmasked Trump associates in perfectly legal conversations with individuals,” diGenova told The Daily Caller News Foundation Investigative Group Monday.
“The overheard conversations involved no illegal activity by anybody of the Trump associates, or anyone they were speaking with,” diGenova said. “In short, the only apparent illegal activity was the unmasking of the people in the calls.”
Other official sources with direct knowledge and who requested anonymity confirmed to TheDCNF diGenova’s description of surveillance reports Rice ordered one year before the 2016 presidential election.
It appears, if these reports are correct, that the Obama Administration was literally ‘spying’ on the Trump campaign much longer than previously thought. Sure, Trump wasn’t the intended target (wink, wink, nod, nod), but the results of the surveillance of foreign nationals seemed to provide information specifically regarding Trump; the Trump campaign and the Trump transition team.
The question is why? It obviously did nothing to benefit Hillary Clinton or help her win, although that may have been the original intent. And remember, innocent Americans are supposed to be protected, not unmasked for the entire intelligence community to see.
If all these reports are true and verifiable with internal government sources, how is it that people haven’t already been arrested, especially Susan Rice?
Democrats have continually tried to make claims about ‘Russian interference,’ but it seems like the only actual interference has come from the Democrat party and their partners in crime, the lame stream media.
