Skip to comments.FLASHBACK: Susan Rice Said ‘I Know Nothing’ About Unmasking of Trump Officials
Posted on 04/03/2017 11:40:53 PM PDT by Helicondelta
Susan Rice, former President Barack Obama's national security adviser, reportedly requested on several occasions the identities of "masked" U.S. persons in intelligence reports linked to President Trump's transition and campaign. The revelation contradicts Rice's past comments on March 22, when she claimed she knew "nothing" about the intelligence reports.
White House lawyers discovered Rice's dozens of requests last month, during a National Security Council review of the "government's policy on unmasking' the identities of individuals in the U.S. who are not targets of electronic eavesdropping, but whose communications are collected incidentally," Eli Lake of Bloomberg reported Monday, citing U.S. officials.
But Rice, who Newsweek once called Obama's "right-hand woman," denied during a PBS interview last month having any knowledge of the intelligence community's alleged incidental surveillance of Trump's transition team.

Maybe they should give her till sundown, to get the heck out of Dodge.
And so it begins to unravel...now we know why Bottom Boy is hiding out in Tahiti.
Obama and his entire movement, including Susan Rice, are liberal fascists. The end justifies the means, they consider themselves morally superior to the law and the constitution.
Think not? Its a really serious problem whihci spanns al;l three branches of government as we watch President Trump bromng the natio back to its lawful path.
Barrack Obama: The Quintessential Liberal Fascist
Hardly the first time she lied to the media......
What a surprise.
Obamanators are all liars and frauds.
Fry them all.
so much in the following piece of ????
Fake News from the start, suggesting only “conservative media” were covering the Rice story.
wrong for the President to talk about Rice, but no evidence of Russia/Trump collusion after endless months of investigation doesn’t mean stopping that 24/7 farce.

3 Apr: NYT: Trump Tries to Deflect Russia Scrutiny, Citing Crooked Scheme by Obama
By PETER BAKER and MATTHEW ROSENBERG
Adam Goldman contributed reporting.
The presidents broadside against his predecessor coincided with a string of reports in conservative news media outlets that Susan E. Rice, Mr. Obamas national security adviser, requested the identities of Americans who were cited in intelligence reports about surveillance of foreign officials, and who were connected with Mr. Trumps campaign or transition.
Former national security officials, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, described the requests as normal and said they were justified by the need for the presidents top security adviser to understand the context of reports sent to her by the nations intelligence agencies...
Mr. Trump first accused Mr. Obama a month ago of tapping his phones at Trump Tower during the campaign last year. He has refused to back down, even though Mr. Obama and his top aides have adamantly denied it...
In an interview broadcast on BBC on Monday evening, John O. Brennan, the C.I.A. director under Mr. Obama, chided Mr. Trump for making an unsubstantiated allegation against the former president. Mr. Trump, he said, has a solemn obligation to provide information that is accurate, that is measured and that is not just a spontaneous or impulsive number of words....
While other officials have said there is no convincing evidence so far of collusion between Mr. Trumps campaign and Russian officials who meddled in last years election, Mr. Brennan said that it would be premature at this time to make any determination, or rule anything out....
Lefties, even high government officials, tend to a very short view of the future. They can’t think of information that has been recorded being accessed by people who have not the same goals as themselves. That is tomorrow. It doesn’t occur to them that tomorrow eventually comes around. Two possibilities: They are all TV kids who have been conditioned to think in very short sequences and to think only of right now. OR The Left really did think that the late election would finally be the culmination of the Revolution and the opposition would never return from the gulags or the grave.
Lie No. 1.....Shades of Benghazi!!
I’m afraid his Obama is really a spy center and he is getting all of Trumps intelligence briefings.
How does this *itch not go to jail? What’s astounding is that she was still near anything classified after her Benghazi lies.
Love the way this playing out.
WE MAY BE WITNESSES TO THE FIRST FORMER PRESIDENT ON THE RUN FROM PROSECUTION
TV interviews mean nothing, they can claim
anything they want, innocence, no knowledge of,...never seen, not aware of,etc etc....
Testify before Congress, under oath, is where things get sticky. It is where the deals are made....where we lose. Its done behind closed doors,we only get to see and
hear the the selected “highlights” deemed
suitable. Justice no longer exist. The bribes,corruption,crimes...are all driven buy $$$$$$....UNTIL the guilty are sentenced...it will never change.
This sounds like a Watergate scenario, as many others say as well. Of course now there will be a convenient terrorist event or tragedy to divert attention, something like Disney is my guess since they went full high security very recently.
Last week i had a bad premonition of something happening april 5 or the 6th. I hope I’m wrong.
Recall the saga of "Scooter" Libby (from former VP Cheney's staff) during the unmasking of Valerie Plame?
"Scooter" got serious jail time. And Shrub did not pardon him.
