Skip to comments.Exclusive: Rice told House investigators why she unmasked senior Trump officials
Posted on 09/13/2017 3:55:50 PM PDT by BlackFemaleArmyCaptain
Former national security adviser Susan Rice privately told House investigators that she unmasked the identities of senior Trump officials to understand why the crown prince of the United Arab Emirates was in New York late last year, multiple sources told CNN.
The New York meeting preceded a separate effort by the UAE to facilitate a back-channel communication between Russia and the incoming Trump White House. The crown prince, Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed al-Nahyan, arrived in New York last December in the transition period before Trump was sworn into office for a meeting with several top Trump officials, including Michael Flynn, the president's son-in-law, Jared Kushner, and his top strategist Steve Bannon, sources said.
The Obama administration felt misled by the United Arab Emirates, which had failed to mention that Zayed was coming to the United States even though it's customary for foreign dignitaries to notify the US government about their travels, according to several sources familiar with the matter. Rice, who served as then-President Obama's national security adviser in his second term, told the House Intelligence Committee last week that she requested the names of the Americans mentioned in the classified report be revealed internally, a practice officials in both parties say is common.
Rice's previously undisclosed revelation in a classified setting shines new light on a practice that had come under sharp criticism from the committee chairman, California Rep. Devin Nunes, and President Donald Trump, who previously accused Rice of committing a crime.

I thought it was because of some poor video.
Trump was President-elect at the time. He had every right to talk to foreign government officials.
The woman who believes Bergdahl “served with honor and distinction” cannot be trusted to tell the TRUTH.
Lock her and jeb up
She lies and lies and lies......on TV about Benghazi ....and to Congress to save her sorry ***.
And we BELIEVED her???!!!
Like a Thousand to One against that happening. We keep forgetting we live in a society where the rules and laws don’t apply to all.
(HAT TIP OMEGATOO)
<><> If the information found in the incidental involvement of any US Person was threatening US Security, and America citizens' safety, why did US security agencies wait for Rices request to unmask?
<><> Did Obama issue a secret stand down order?
<><> Why did Rice on PBS initially deny responsibility for the unmasking?
<><> Why was this threat not unveiled at the time or since? Why now?
Alarmingly, the supposed threat identified by Rice was about to be inaugurated as President of the US. Shouldnt Congress have been notified? Why did Rice keep it a secret? Maybe she planned to collude w/ the Clintons to sell the intel to a foreign country?
Questions Rice must answer:
1. When did you request the unmasking, and from which agency?
2. Who in that agency actually did the unmasking? Please provide the written requests you submitted.
3. Once the names were unmasked, did you still believe there was a threat to national security from the named US persons?
4. If so, with whom did you share the information, and what actions were taken to protect America and American citizens?
5. If you did not, then you should not have shared the names with anyone else, so how did the names become known?
6. Why was any of the info detailed here deliberately withheld on the FISA application? (it's a felony to willfully withhold information when applying for a FISA).

Contact your Representative and Senators---demand these questions blanket the media---and demand Susan Rice answer them.
Another zealot, like Evelyn Farkas. Never mind the law, the ends justify the means as long as she, her ideals, reign supreme. She knows what’s right. For you, for me. For everyone. Turn the crank just a teeny bit more to the left and you can deny, on your own initiative, Conservative groups tax-exempt status. Like Lois Lerner. Turn a little bit more and you can create a law that usurps Congressional authority and arrogates it to the executive branch over that over that. And now you can step over another line and create your own private government server which just so happens to reveal the names of CIA operatives operating in China so that 18 of them are captured, tortured and killed, or that over 600 messages from Benghazi are revealed so that our enemies get clued in that the consulate there has inadequate defensive measures in place. Despite having signed an agreement that you understand SCIF information is infinitely critical and your top secret status means utterly nothing. Despite having assured the administration that you would cease your Global Initiative activities.
There is no higher pile of criminal bulls**t that has ever been piled.

"Susan, as you sift through the intel, get me something
damaging on Penguin books so I can shake them down for
a lucrative book deal."
"And get Harvey Weinstein's tax returns. Malia needs a job."
"Oh, and Lois needs intel to target conservatives' tax-exempt status.
And don't forget the FBI files on Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer."
The school asserts that during her residency at A/U, Rice will work primarily on her next book and mentor SIS students on careers in national security.
A/U defines Susan Rice's position with Obama thusly: She provided the President with daily national security briefings and was responsible for coordinating the formulation and implementation of all aspects of the Administrations foreign and national security policy, intelligence, and military efforts.

If it’s illegal, then prosecute her.
Start putting some of these Leftists in prison where they belong.
Because the next Leftist will think twice before doing the same thing.
It cuts down on crime. I know that seems to be a tough sell concept for justice officials these days.
GO right to f-ing jail and don't pass go!
All that these POS libtards do is lie,lie,lie covering the Kenyan or Hildabeast! It's nauseating.
Rice did it ... because she could.
The Congress laughed because they could, too.
