    Susan Rice Scandal Just Got WAY Worse, New Details Released

    Susan Rice Scandal Just Got WAY Worse, New Details Released
    .
    If the Susan Rice unmasking scandal wasn’t bad enough already, new details are emerging that suggest the reports were very detailed, and included personal details about Trump associates’ everyday lives.
    .
    Fox News reported:
    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.
    .
    On March 20, NSA director Admiral Mike Rogers testified in front of the House Intelligence Committee and explained that there are only 20 people within the agency that have the authority to approve unmasking requests of the names of American citizens in intel reports.
    .
    “They receive specific training, there are specific controls put in place in terms of our ability to disseminate information out of the databases associated with U.S. persons,” Rogers said.
    .
    Fox News reported on the issue of authorization:
    .
    While not commenting on the individual case, a former senior intelligence official explained the request must be approved by the NSA. Rice would have understood that there is an extensive government paper trail, that can be audited within the NSA, that shows who requested the unmasking, on what basis, and whether it was granted. This raises more questions about Rice, her motivation and whether it was authorized higher up, offering cover.
    .
    This is a huge scandal, folks. And it calls for a major investigation, because we need answers. Why did Rice unmask the names? Who authorized it? Who ordered it?

    My Thoughts:
    .
    The question I have is, if the NSA, CIA and FBI didn’t feel there were ANY reasons to unmask all of the items Rice wanted unmasked, then why did Rice feel it was required.
    .
    She doesn’t have any investigating powers to use and they also said there wasn’t any connection in the items she wanted unmasked between the Russians and Trump in the influencing the election.
    .
    There is only one reason she wanted to look at them after they were unmasked, it was to find anything she could find to damage the Trump election plan. Also, why did someone at the NSA guide her to these specific items to look at and unmask, if not for political reasons, because they were not national security reasons?

    Ops: She was part of the Obama administration. That explains it all. They were all expecting Hillary to win the election and everything would continue for the next four to eight years just as they did for the last eight years. Obama and his entourage considered themselves to be above the law and the Constitution. This just another dead horse.

    Susan Rice is a habitual liar. She would rather climb a greased flagpole and tell a lie, than stand on the ground and tell the truth.

    Congress expands 'unmasking' probe amid questions over Rice role
    .
    By: Malia Zimmerman and Adam Housley
    .
    The House and Senate intelligence committees are expanding their investigation into the so-called “unmasking” controversy, Fox News has learned, to examine whether other candidates or lawmakers beyond President Trump’s associates were affected.
    .
    Until now, the investigation focused on how the identities and communications of Trump transition members were collected by U.S. intelligence agencies and then revealed to, and disseminated among, high-ranking members of the Obama administration.
    .
    House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif., now plans to audit files from the National Security Agency and White House to determine whether identities and conversations of presidential candidates -- or members of Congress -- also were swept up during NSA surveillance of foreign leaders. He also plans to review whether Obama’s National Security Council and White House counsel collected and distributed the intelligence for reasons unrelated to foreign intelligence.
    .
    “We will be performing an accounting of all unmasking for political purposes focused on the previous White House administration,” a member of the committee told Fox News. “This is now a full-blown investigation.”
    .
    Staffers on the Senate committee told Fox News they also have expanded their investigation into whether presidential candidates were unmasked and information was misused -- and what role former National Security Adviser Susan Rice, among others, played following reports that she requested Trump-affiliated names be unmasked.
    .
    For a private U.S. citizen to be “unmasked,” or named, in an intelligence report is extremely rare and typically only done if it has some foreign intelligence value. Typically, the American is a suspect in a crime, is in danger or has to be named to explain the context of the report.
    .
    The intelligence reports that Rice and others in the administration reportedly assembled are similar to what a private investigator might piece together, congressional and U.S. intelligence sources said. In some cases, rather than documenting foreign intelligence, the files included salacious personal information that, if released, could be embarrassing or harmful to the person’s reputation, U.S. intelligence and House Intelligence Committee sources said.
    .
    These reports were then disseminated to about 20 to 30 people who had classified clearance in the Obama administration hierarchy, these sources said.
    .
    Trump, members of his family, and members of his campaign and transition teams, were likely subjects of “incidental electronic surveillance” by U.S. intelligence agencies, Fox News reported.
    .
    Sources told Fox News that names were then sent to all those at the National Security Council, some at the Defense Department, then-Director of National Intelligence James Clapper and then-CIA Director John Brennan -- as well as Rice and her former deputy Ben Rhodes, even though the names were supposed to be reported only to the initial requester.
    .
    If the names were unmasked in intelligence reports and then leaked to the media for political reasons, it could constitute criminal behavior.
    .
    Retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, Trump’s initial national security adviser, is one known example of a Trump campaign official whose name was unmasked from an intelligence report and leaked to the press. While Rice hasn’t said whether she unmasked Flynn, the leak of his conversation with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak where he discussed U.S. sanctions led Flynn to resign three weeks into his term.
    .
    Nunes first announced on March 22 that he’d viewed intelligence reports that contained incidental surveillance on members of the Trump team.
    ..
    On Tuesday, The Washington Post reported former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page also was monitored by the FBI after the agency obtained a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act warrant as part of an ongoing investigation into possible links between Russian officials and members of the Trump campaign.
    .
    In a statement to Fox News, Page said he has done nothing wrong and was a political target.

    I think Rice better get a really good lawyer ASAP. But we all know she’ll plead the 5th when she’s asked questions. The FBI is what’s needed to start a grand jury.

  6. The worse she will suffer is a contempt of congress conviction.
