Susan Rice Rice is the Obama official who loudly and publicly praised Bowe Bergdahl for his “honorable service” & claimed he was captured “on the battlefield.”
She carried water for Hilary Clinton on Benghazi, telling the public that it was a spontaneous riot in response to a video when Obama and Hilary and Rice already knew it was a planned terrorist attack.
Two weeks ago she said she did not know anything at all about any unmasking. Now it’s ‘Oh,that unmasking, but I didn’t leak anything.’ Somebody did. She should know who. And why would we believe somebody who just two weeks ago denied what she admits now?
Lemon, Sciutto, and Cuomo instruct public to just ignore a major news story.
10 Questions a journalist would ask, but Andrea Mitchell did not.
Mike Cernovich broke the story (the NYT had ben sitting on it a couple of days). Here’s a disturbing account:
“Former President Barack Obama’s national security adviser Susan Rice ordered U.S. spy agencies to produce “detailed spreadsheets” of legal phone calls involving Donald Trump and his aides when he was running for president, according to former U.S. Attorney Joseph diGenova.
“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.””
She abused government power, using it to illegal gather intelligence on a political campaign. There’s no way she did this on her own.
Keep in mind she is married to ABC News Producer Ian Cameron.
In an interview with Democrat operative pretending to be a reporter Andrea Mitchell:
On Tuesday, Mitchell asked Rice if she had ever unmasked the identities of Tump transition members “to spy on them and expose them.”
“Absolutely not for any political purposes,” Rice said in a heavily caveated response.
She went on to explain that while an individual within the intelligence community could ask for a person’s identity, their names typically would not be spread. She did not say whether or not the broad dissemination of names after they had been unmasked in an intelligence report occurred.
“There’s no equivalence between so-called unmasking and leaking,” she said, apparently implying that while any alleged unmasking was proper, any leaking of the information would not be. “The effort to ask for the identify of an American citizen is necessary to understand the intelligence report in some instances.”
She did not explain why the information would have been masked by intelligence agencies in the first place if it were deemed by them to have any intelligence value.
Rice also said the pace of surveillance of members of the Trump transition team was “accelerated” after the election.
“Yes, there was a pace of reporting that accelerated as the intelligence community got more and more information on that [Russia’s influence on the election] and shared it with U.S. officials,” Rice said.
Later in the interview, Rice refused to commit to testifying under oath about her role in unmasking the identities of Trump transition team members who were surveilled by the Obama administration.
It never happened, there’s no evidence, it’s not a story, nothing improper happened, it’s still not a a story but here’s the main character of the nonstory for an interview where we encourage her to share her unchallenged side of the events that never happened and aren’t a story anyway.
Also, we asked an un-named but close friend of hers who says there’s nothing to the story, so obviously, it’s false.
Wow. How Cernovich found out. Must reading.
