Susan Rice Was Person Responsible For Trying To Unmask U.S. Citizens

But, hey, remember, this wasn’t political

(Bloomberg)  White House lawyers last month learned that the former national security adviser Susan Rice requested the identities of U.S. persons in raw intelligence reports on dozens of occasions that connect to the Donald Trump transition and campaign, according to U.S. officials familiar with the matter.

The pattern of Rice’s requests was discovered in 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. Normally those names are redacted from summaries of monitored conversations and appear in reports as something like “U.S. Person One.”

The National Security Council’s senior director for intelligence, Ezra Cohen-Watnick, was conducting the review, according to two U.S. officials who spoke with Bloomberg View on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss it publicly. In February Cohen-Watnick discovered Rice’s multiple requests to unmask U.S. persons in intelligence reports that related to Trump transition activities. He brought this to the attention of the White House General Counsel’s office, who reviewed more of Rice’s requests and instructed him to end his own research into the unmasking policy.

For all the caterwauling from Democrats about Russia Russia Russia, they have no actual evidence. Even after trying these shenanigans, they still have no evidence. Here’s what they do potentially have

(Powerline)  In any event, if Rice and others conspired to leak confidential information or publicly disclose information about individuals like General Flynn, it would be a crime.

That crime would be a felony. A big one. And, as many are thinking, would Rice do this without orders? Orders from Obama? There’s almost zero chance that Obama would put anything in writing or in any manner he could be implicated. Give the man credit, he’s slick, and unaccountable.

An interesting part to this whole thing is that it was Mike Cernovich, a guy called Fake News by 60 Minutes, who scooped everyone on this.

This is also funny

[I]t’s safe to say that there was absolutely no collusion of any kind between Team Trump and anyone Russian. None. How do I know this to a near certainty? Because we haven’t seen anybody leak any evidence of any in the six-plus months that they’ve been pushing this nonsense.

And they most certainly won’t find anything in the future. But, hey, it’s a great way to drive a wedge between Americans, fundraise, and be their typical apoplectic selves.

    Combine this with the revelations of that little bint, Evelyn Farkas, and we have some pretty compelling evidence that Trump was right.
    BTW, Obama has fled the country.
    Wondering what he might be hiding.

    I’m not the first to pose this thought, but it seems more likely to me every day… The whole “Russia” election hacking investigation was simply a smokescreen to cover spying on Trump and other political opponents.

    This is just the face of an entire political party having a childish hissy-fit because they lost an election. I’m lovin’ it. I hope they continue this shit till the next election so they can be trounced twice as bad. They look like fools, idiots. They act like children.

    At this point the entire left can be summed up with dancing fags at Pence’s house, dirty old trannies whipping out their dicks in little girls rooms and privileged rich white leftist women dressed as pussies wearing pink pussy hats at Starbucks.

    Today I was at my Club for lunch and one of our resident nut job leftists was spouting almost word for word Jeffery’s screed. When I got home some ditsy broad named Jehmu Greene was saying the identical things on FOX. Does the DNC pump this crap into their collective heads while they sleep or is being a leftist so predictable they just keep saying the same shit over and over. Don’t they ever listen to their nonsense?

    Perhaps it’s their information sources that are the problem:

    All the Fake News #FakeAmericans need.

    I’m really getting a kick out of all the leftists falling all over themselves trying to spin the fact that the Obama criminal cartel was spying on Trump and associates and leaking classified info to the MSM to potentially embarrass him and his campaign.

  7. Jeffery says:

    Routine surveillance of Russian “agents”, “diplomats” and “spies” turns up members of the trump campaign and transition. Why wouldn’t the NSA be interested?

  8. John Glanton says:

    OMG, Susan Rice lives in an alternate universe:

  9. drowningpuppies says:

    Another theory behind the “unmasking” is the potential criminality of Obama’s people and/or Hillary’s gang that were picked up by the wiretaps, incidentally.
    Uranium One, anybody?
    Cash payments to Iran?
    Ties to Valerie Jarrett?

    Gotta scrub that info…

  10. Jeffery says:

    If National Security Advisor Susan Rice illegally leaked the legal unmasking of trump campaign officials caught up in the legal surveillance of Russian agents, she should be treated according to the laws.

    If it is shown she unmasked the campaign officials for political rather than national security reasons she should be treated according to the laws.

    That said, we still need to know why the trump campaign was in contact with Russian agents.

    Both investigations should continue.

  11. drowningpuppies says:

    Susan Rice- lying bitch has quite a history…

  12. drowningpuppies says:

    Once a story starts hurting the Dems, reporters drop it.

  13. drowningpuppies says:

    After all, if they argue that her activities were perfectly legal, then there will be no reason for the Trump administration not to engage in the same behavior, and leak the names of Democrats whenever they happen to come across them while spying on legitimate foreign targets.
