Could it be true?
Controversial conservative Mike Cernovich is known for being… strident. However, he’s also known for having a nose for the truth and he just dropped a bomb on everyone.
Cernovich is reporting that his sources in the administration tell him that it was one of President Obama’s closest advisors, Susan Rice, who illegally unmasked the names of members of the Trump team. Cernovich also expresses dismay at the fact that the national media focused their reporting on “who” House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes (R-CA) was getting his information from, when they should have been focusing on the information that had been exposed.
Susan Rice, who served as the National Security Adviser under President Obama, has been identified as the official who requested unmasking of incoming Trump officials, Cernovich Media can exclusively report.
The White House Counsel’s office identified Rice as the person responsible for the unmasking after examining Rice’s document log requests. The reports Rice requested to see are kept under tightly-controlled conditions. Each person must log her name before being granted access to them.
Upon learning of Rice’s actions, H. R. McMaster dispatched his close aide Derek Harvey to Capitol Hill to brief Chairman Nunes.
“Unmasking” is the process of identifying individuals whose communications were caught in the dragnet of intelligence gathering. While conducting investigations into terrorism and other related crimes, intelligence analysts incidentally capture conversations about parties not subject to the search warrant. The identities of individuals who are not under investigation are kept confidential, for legal and moral reasons.
This is the same Susan Rice who lied to America about what happened in Benghazi. This is the same Susan Rice who then spent years spinning the story of Benghazi and of every other Obama catastrophe in an effort to cover for her boss’ many failings. This is the same Susan Rice who just recently dared to lecture President Trump about not fudging the facts when speaking to the American people! She is the queen of hypocrisy and she may finally have been unmasked as the criminal we should have all known her to be.
We’ll need to wait for confirmation on this story but I think we’ll have it soon enough.
However, the bigger question is this… Susan Rice is one of President Obama’s closest confidants, does anyone truly believe that she would do something as drastic as illegally unmasking the names of American citizens (particularly when they are on the transition team of the opposition party president-elect), without her boss knowing? I don’t think so, and I don’t think Americans will buy that she acted without his knowledge either.
