FELONY! OBAMA OFFICIAL SUSAN RICE ASKED FOR UNMASKING OF TRUMP TRANSITION TEAM DURING OBAMA TRUMP TOWER WIRETAPPING
Susan Rice, Obama’s national Security Adviser, asked for ‘unmasking’ of Donald Trump administration. Leaking it to the media is federal felony.

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.
