“Do I think [she committed
a crime]? Yes, I think...It’s such an important story for our country and the
world. It is one of the big stories of our time.”
- President Trump on Susan Rice being exposed as one of the key
players in the wiretap scandal
A key player for sure for what was Susan Rice but a bought
and paid for political operative working on behalf of the Obama administration.
Now exposed as the person responsible for the 'unmasking' of President Trump’s
transition team, this was found out after the White House Counsel's office reviewed
her document log requests. But know that in no way did this woman devise this wiretapping
scenario on her own for Susan Rice is neither smart enough nor powerful enough
to pull off this scope of targeted wiretapping without help and instructions.
And when you dismiss the currently circulating possibilities
that maybe she was acting in connection with a joint investigation into Russian
interference into the election or that she was simply seeking insight about
foreign governments, what is left is the more likely scenario that Susan Rice was
conducting the kind of political espionage President Trump has alleged all along, and did
so on the behest of her boss Barack HUSSEIN Obama.
And to that likely affect, this past Monday, Senator Rand
Paul called for Susan Rice...Obama’s last National Security Advisor...to testify
under oath...believing as do I that Obama himself might have ordered her to “unmask” Trump officials for “unspecified purposes”...actually for
political purposes as in to bring the Trump administration down before it even
began if truth be told. And then on Tuesday, Susan Rice herself admitted that
she had asked for U.S. citizens to be “unmasked”
on several occasions while hemming and hawing about whether any of those
persons were on Trump’s transition team. And of course she vehemently insisted that
she had done nothing wrong.
“The allegations that
somehow Obama administration officials utilized intelligence for political
purposes are absolutely false...unmasking] is necessary to do my job...imagine
if we saw something of grave significance about Russia, or China, or anybody
else interfering with our political process,” were Susan Rice’s exact words...words
based upon lies but then again words coming from the mouth of the ‘Liar of
Benghazi’...words basically trying to insert into the discourse the Democrats
nonsense that Russia ‘fixed’ the election so Hillary would lose...done so she could
justify her what I and others truly believe to be criminal actions.
Saying that she was asked by the intelligence community to
turn over the names of those in the Trump transition team who had been ‘caught,’
if you will, speaking via phone to or meeting in person with foreign officials under
surveillance...and it was here that General Flynn was named...but what Susan Rice is
not saying is that while these names...civilian names...are usually redacted in transcripts that
high-level government officials can and do 'request' through a process
called ‘unmasking.’ And what is ‘unmasking’ exactly...simply it is the identifying
of those whose communications and conversations were inadvertently caught
during a coordinated effort of intelligence gathering even though those persons
were not the subject of a search warrant.
Now as for Susan Rice’s specific 'requests'...'requests' that are kept under ”tightly-controlled conditions”...these 'requests' are what
exposed her actions. It must also be noted that each
person requesting such information has to log-in by signing their name before being granted access
to requested information, and it is important to know that Susan Rice was one of but three people (with
the other two being CIA Director John Brennan and then-Attorney General Loretta
Lynch) that Obama gave permission “to
request and consume unmasked NSA-based intelligence reports about U.S. citizens.”
And when this past February during a routine review of
requests, Ezra Cohen-Watnick, the National Security Council’s Senior Director
for Intelligence, discovered that Susan Rice, on dozens of occasions, filed 'requests'
for the identities of persons in ‘raw intelligence reports’... persons whose monitored
conversations were between Trump associates and foreign officials who discussed then-president-elect
Trump’s transition...conversations that were collected ‘incidentally’ without said
persons being the targets of specific electronic eavesdropping and whose identities
instead of being redacted became known. And this led Cohen-Watnick to (rightfully) bring
all this to the attention of the White House General Counsel’s office, who in
turn reviewed more of Rice’s requests and instructed Cohen-Watnick to end his
own research into the ‘unmasking policy’ and that they would handle it from there
on out as the information garnered included 'sensitive information' about not
only who the president’s associates were meeting, but their views on foreign
policy issues, and further transition plans. as well
And then when National Security Advisor H. R. McMaster was
informed of these goings on he sent his aide, one Derek Harvey, to Capitol Hill
to brief Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee Devin Nunes on these
findings...and the rest is history as they say.
But now that we know the wiretapping on President Trump did indeed
happen and that it involved Obama’s flunky Susan Rice, the questions remaining
become what if any hand did Barack HUSSEIN Obama have in this, what if
any crime did Susan Rice commit, and if a crime was indeed committed and if Obama
was involved...as I and others suspect...what should their punishments be?
So did the woman who said “I leaked nothing to nobody and never have and never would” commit
any crime...I say ‘yes.' And that crime starts with what she does best...lie. But why lie
if Susan Rice felt she did nothing wrong...why lie if there was nothing to
cover up... why...because Susan Rice was instructed to make a crime far worse than Watergate go away. And
while that lie might not involve how the information was collected it does
involve the hows and the whys it was publicly disseminated.
And just like with Benghazi Rice's lies started with her appearance last
month on yet another talk show, this time on the 'PBS
NewsHour' where she was asked about reports that Trump and his transition
officials were "swept up in"
an incidental intelligence collection concerning
possible Russian interference with the election. And Rice’s response, "I know nothing about this...I was
surprised to see reports from Chairman Nunes on that account today."
Liar...for like I said earlier, this past Tuesday, Susan
Rice admitted that she asked for U.S. citizens to be ‘unmasked’ and that
nothing she did was for political purposes, which again is a lie...a lie told to
deliberately create controversy and questions involving the Trump team, and to
delegitimize the Trump presidency in any and every way possible even before he
was sworn into office.
So, was the monitoring of Trump’s campaign and his
transition team and then doing nothing to safeguard their identities as per the
law paramount to spying as some say? To
answer that it is first important to remember that while government
surveillance of U.S. citizens is indeed constrained by statute and the
Constitution, spying on foreigners... including diplomats...is permitted as per
the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) which allows so-called ‘secret
courts’ to issue surveillance warrants for non-Americans.
But with Obama having
given Susan Rice permission to request the names of Americans picked up in such
surveillance, especially when it is being claimed that there was a “compelling national security” reason to
do so (as in the Democrats still unproven claim that Russia interfered with our
election) some say that disclosing the names of transition officials who were
caught up in legal wiretaps of foreigners is not the same thing as illegally
spying on the Trump campaign.
And with some legal experts saying that the standard for
senior officials to learn the names of U.S. persons ‘incidentally’ collected is
that it must have some foreign intelligence value, a standard that can apply to
almost anything, which Rice has now used to defend her actions; and with others
like Susan Hennessey, a former attorney for the National Security Agency and
current Brookings Institution fellow, saying that they believe there would have
been “nothing worrisome” about Rice
asking for the names of Trump officials to be unmasked while in her post as the
Obama administration’s top national security official....others are saying that
while Susan Rice’s actions did indeed if not break the law did cross over into
very dangerous ground because as per the law the redacted names...'classified
names’...were never supposed to be released and they deliberately were.
In fact, John R. Schindler, a conservative columnist for the
'New York Observer' and a former NSA analyst with deeply placed ‘sources’ in the
intelligence community, wrote that "Rice
had perfectly legitimate reasons to want to know the full story about those
reports"...meaning intelligence reports tracking foreign-government
officials discussing Trump or talking to Trump associates....but that Rice was
a "deeply unpopular figure"
in the intelligence community. "Rice
didn't like to play by the rules, including the top-secret ones," he wrote
in the New York Observer. "On
multiple occasions, she asked the NSA to do things they regarded as unethical
and perhaps illegal. When she was turned down, the NSA fears breaking laws for
any White House, since they know they will be left holding the bag in the end, Rice
So, while Susan Rice might technically not have done
anything legally wrong in asking for redacted names to be ‘unmasked’ in reports
involving Trump and his people, she did do something wrong...very wrong...when
instead of keeping those should be ‘classified names’ to herself she released
them in an effort to not only play politics with said ‘classified names,’ but
to also keep the lie going that Russia had tried to influence the 2016 presidential
And what is the punished for leaking classified information
whether it be something as simple as ‘classified names’...as per 18 U.S. Code
§ 798 - Disclosure of Classified Information...”Whoever knowingly and willfully communicates, furnishes, transmits, or
otherwise makes available to an unauthorized person, or publishes, or uses in
any manner prejudicial to the safety or interest of the United States or for
the benefit of any foreign government to the detriment of the United States any
classified information...Shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more
than ten years, or both.”
So now as we wait and see if anyone has the courage
charge her with anything... especially since both the gender and race
cards are now being thrown out by the media in that this attack on Susan
Rice is only happening because she is a woman and a black woman to
boot...more lies of course...we need to know what role exactly did
Obama play in all this...and know that his hand is all over it as he on so many
made public statements to the effect that he would be keeping his eye on
now President Trump and
calling him to task for anything he did not agree with him on.
And let’s be honest here...Obama was more than a bit angry
that Hillary Clinton did not get the chance to finish off his ‘fundamental
change of America’ as he and his fellow leftist Democrats counted on her doing.
So what better way to funnel that anger than do a bit of payback by any means
possible and using any conduit possible.
And so enter center stage Susan Rice who in her capacity as
National Security Advisor became Obama’s conduit of choice. And what better
proof of that is there than her lies, her alludings, her declining to say
whether she personally saw intelligence on Trump's associates or whether she
asked for their identities (which the log rolls show she did), along with the
fact that neither she nor her Democrat cohorts have said a word defending “We
the People’s right to privacy in such surveillance sweeps...right’s assured us
by law...right’s she as National Security Advisor should have been screaming for loud and clear.
So with us now knowing that Susan Rice was indeed the 'front man' behind
the wiretapping of President Trump, it also must be know that even if she is called to testify
that she will invoke ‘the 5th’ no matter what question is asked. And why...because Susan Rice will go 'missing' or worse if she were to squeal even to save her own butt.
And besides, the national security excuse is already in place and being shoved
down our throats by the media...the fix and the cover-up of the whole sorted mess is firmly in
