Susan Rice, the Obama Official that is accused of unmasking and potentially leaking classified reports on Trump Officials, stated that she unmasked but only for reasons of National Security. Rice didn’t give any specific evidence of that claim, simply relying on her government title of National Security Adviser as proof of her claim. Now information is coming out from Fox News that flies in the face of that claim.
Fox News reports:
The intelligence reports at the center of the Susan Rice unmasking controversy were detailed, and almost resembled a private investigator’s file, according to a Republican congressman familiar with the documents.
“This is information about their everyday lives,” Rep. Peter King of New York, a member of the House Intelligence committee said. “Sort of like in a divorce case where lawyers are hired, investigators are hired just to find out what the other person is doing from morning until night and then you try to piece it together later on.”
On the House Intelligence Committee, only the Republican chairman, Devin Nunes of California, and the ranking Democrat Adam Schiff, also of California, have personally reviewed the intelligence reports. Some members were given broad outlines.
Nunes has consistently stated that the files caused him deep concern because the unmasking went beyond the former national security adviser Mike Flynn, and the information was not related to Moscow.
So not only were Trump Officials collected, unmasked, and leaked… That information (apparently a large collection) was organized into files that appeared to resemble a Private Investigator’s file. Why would that be? If you are simply trying to understand the context of a specific conversation that relates to a National Security matter why would you have to collect so much information and literally track the American citizen that isn’t supposed to be collected upon?
This new revelation makes the answer obvious. The Obama Administration was trying to find dirt on the Trump Officials in an effort to either embarrass them or cripple the campaign. These actions were purely political and someone needs to pay a price for all of this.
