Three reasons why President Trump met with H.R. McMaster  on Thursday :

  • For purging Trump loyalists from the White House national security council,
  • about McMaster wanting to send more U.S. troops to Afghanistan
  • and a report that McMaster allowed former Obama administration aide Susan E. Rice to keep her security clearance

 

By Dave Boyer – The Washington Times – Thursday, August 3, 2017

National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster met with President Trump Thursday amid his purge of Trump loyalists from the White House national security council, a heated debate about sending more U.S. troops to Afghanistan and a report that he allowed former Obama administration aide Susan E. Rice to keep her security clearance.

Gen. McMaster sent a letter to Ms. Rice in April giving her unfettered and continuing access to classified information and waiving the “need-to-know” requirement on anything she viewed or received during her tenure as President Obama’s national security adviser. A copy of the letter was obtained by Circa; Mr. Trump reportedly was not aware of Gen. McMaster’s action.

The topic of Ms. Rice has been a particularly sore spot for Mr. Trump, who was angered to learn that she unmasked the identities of Trump transition aides in conversations with Russian officials. The president has called it “a massive story.”

Gen. McMaster also has come under increasing fire from conservatives this week after Bloomberg reported that he concluded Ms. Rice did nothing wrong with the unmasking.

The head of a conservative group called for Gen. McMaster to be fired, citing the leaks Thursday of transcripts of Mr. Trump’s phone conversations with foreign leaders.

“The only option President Trump has is to clean house at the National Security Council, starting at the top with General McMaster,” said Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning. “The threat posed to the country by the National Security Council leaking requires immediate and swift action.”

SNAKE! H.R. McMASTER GRANTED SUSAN RICE ‘UNFETTERED ACCESS TO CLASSIFIED INFORMATION’

Posted on

D.C. swamp H.R. McMaster renewed ‘Unmasking’ Queen Susan Rice her top-secret security clearance!

Sara Carter of Circa News reported National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster granted top Obama official Susan Rice top-secret security clearance, ‘giving her unfettered and continuing access to classified information and waiving her “need-to-know” requirement on anything she viewed or received during her tenure.’

Rice tweeted to McMaster last February:

Hope you will be able to choose your team, have direct reporting and daily access to POTUS, and can eliminate Strategic Initiatives

Circa News reports:

Almost one month after it was disclosed that former President Obama’s National Security Adviser Susan Rice was unmasking members of President Trump’s team and other Americans, Trump’s own national security adviser, H.R. McMaster, sent an official letter giving her unfettered and continuing access to classified information and waiving her “need-to-know” requirement on anything she viewed or received during her tenure, Circa has confirmed.

The undated and unclassified letter from McMaster was sent in the mail to Rice’s home during the last week of April. Trump was not aware of the letter or McMaster’s decision, according to two Senior West Wing officials and an intelligence official, who spoke to Circa on condition that they not be named.

 

 

“I hereby waive the requirement that you must have a ‘need-to-know’ to access any classified information contained in items you ‘originated, reviewed, signed or received while serving,’ as National Security Adviser,” the letter said. The letter also states that the “NSC will continue to work with you to ensure the appropriate security clearance documentation remains on file to allow you access to classified information.”

Circa revealed in March that during President Obama’s tenure, top aides — including Rice, former CIA Director John Brennan and former Attorney General Loretta Lynch — routinely reviewed intelligence reports received from the National Security Agency’s incidental intercepts of Americans abroad. They were doing so by taking advantage of rules Obama relaxedstarting in 2011 to help the government better fight terrorism, espionage by foreign enemies and hacking threats, according to documents obtained by Circa.

 

 

 

FOUR OBAMA OFFICIALS TO FACE DOJ PROBE FOR ‘UNMASKING’ TRUMP OFFICIALS AND LEAKING THEM TO MEDIA

Posted on Updated on

 

UNMASKING SCANDAL: Four Obama officials to be investigated by DOJ for unmasking and leaking ‘unmasked’ Trump officials to the media:

  • Susan Rice: Obama’s national security advisor
  • John Brennan: Former CIA Director John Brennan
  • Ben Rhodes: former Obama deputy national security advisor
  • Samantha Power:Former U.N. Ambassador

 

Daily Caller reports:

The calls came as House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes identified a fourth Obama national security official as a “person of interest” who improperly “unmasked” Trump officials and leaked the information to the news media.

In a letter Tuesday to the National Security Agency (NSA), the California Republican requested the agency report on improper “unmasking” requests made by Ben Rhodes, former President Barack Obama’s deputy national security advisor for strategic communications, according to Circa. As such, he was the number two ranking official on the National Security Council (NSC).

Rhodes’ name is now added to three other top Obama national security officials who are accused of improperly requesting the identities of Trump officials whose phone calls were intercepted by the NSA. Those names were later leaked to the media.

The three individuals are Susan Rice, Obama’s national security advisor, former CIA Director John Brennan and former U.N. Ambassador Samantha Power.

Unmasking or identifying U.S. citizens who are communicating with foreign governments or foreign principals for genuine intelligence purposes is legal, but obtaining the identity of U.S. citizens for partisan political purposes is not permitted under any circumstances. The leaking of “unmasked” U.S. citizens to the news media is unlawful.

Former U.S. Attorney Joseph DiGenova told TheDCNF Wednesday that now is the time for the Justice Department to launch an official criminal investigation. The latest revelation about Rhodes “demands a federal criminal investigation with a grand jury and subpoenas.”

“It is obvious that Obama, Brennan, Rice, Power and Rhodes were involved in massive — underscore massive — unmasking of Trump people, friends and associates after Trump’s nomination and after the election,” DiGenova said.

 

 

PURGED! H.R. McMASTER FIRED THREE TRUMP LOYALISTS WHILE OBAMA HOLDOVERS STAY…SWAMP!

  • PURGED by swamp McMaster! Ezra Cohen-Watnick ,the senior director for intelligence on the National Security Council; Rich Higgins, another NSC official
  • McMaster also-fired Middle East director Derek Harvey, who wanted to fire Obama holdoversat the NSC since the firing of Trump’s first NSC director, Mike Flynn.

 

National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster  is purging the White House with Trump loyalists while making sure Obama holdovers stay.

The White House’s National Security Council has hundreds of long-term staffers, nearly all of whom were appointed former President Barack Obama. Trump supporters say those staffers are the source of many media leaks intended to embarrass and weaken Trump.

Ezra Cohen-Watnick was the senior director for intelligence on the National Security Council and has been dismissed.

The Atlantic also reported earlier Wednesday that NSC official, Rich Higgins, a member of the Nationalist faction of the White House, was fired after penning a memo outlining the Deep State threats facing President Trump. 

He also-fired Middle East director Derek Harvey, who wanted to fire Obama holdoversat the NSC since the firing of Trump’s first NSC director, Mike Flynn.

McMaster has opposed many of Trump’s national security reforms. For example, McMaster has opposed Trump’s policy of emphasizing the ties between Islam’s violent scriptures and the Islamic terrorism or jihad.

 

Susan Rice to McMaster after Flynn was out:

“Hope you will be able to choose your team, have direct reporting and daily access to POTUS, and can eliminate Strategic Initiatives Group.”

 

Conservative Review reports:

Cohen-Watnick, 31, was originally brought on board by [Trump’s first] NSC chief Gen. Michael Flynn … McMaster has, in the past, attempted to rid the council of Cohen-Watnick, but was overruled by President Trump, Steve Bannon, and Jared Kushner.

He has been described as an “Iran hawk” who wanted to revamp counter-Iran efforts in the Middle East, and sought to reform the intelligence community to rein in the “deep state” of unaccountable bureaucrats with rogue agendas.

Cohen-Watnick is the latest Trump loyalist to be fired by Gen. McMaster, whose security council continues to be overwhelmingly staffed with Obama holdovers (almost all of whom have retained their positions).

 

SCARED? SUSAN RICE IN LEGAL JEOPARDY, CANCELS CONGRESS TESTIMONY ABOUT UNMASKING ON TUESDAY

Posted on

 

  • Gregg Jarrett: This tells me that lawyers have gotten involved. Lawyers probably told her to clam up… Because she’s in legal jeopardy
  • Susan Rice is no longer expected to visit Capitol Hill on Tuesday

 

Susan Rice, who served as President Barack Obama’s national security adviser, will not be testifying about whether she “unmasked” members of then-candidate Donald Trump’s team’s associations with Russians, Fox News reported.

Fox News reports:

Susan Rice is no longer expected to visit Capitol Hill on Tuesday for a meeting with the House committee probing allegations she “unmasked” President Trump associates in Russian meddling probes.

Rice had been expected to face tough questions on her role in the matter while serving as then-President Barack Obama’s national security adviser. Trump alleges Rice may have committed a crime by asking government analysts to disclose the names of his associates documented in intelligence reports.

Fox News was initially told Rice would be giving closed-door testimony Tuesday before the Republican-led House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence.

But that session has apparently been postponed.

 

FOX News contributor and attorney Gregg Jarrett on Lou Dobbs:

Gregg Jarrett: This tells me that lawyers have gotten involved. Lawyers probably told her to clam up… Because she’s in legal jeopardy… At least one crime was committed here and likely many more.… I would imagine that once they determine who did it (unmasked) here they’re going to be indicted. Now is it going to be a member of the administration, it would have to be because they’re the only ones who had access, top administration officials, to the intelligence that actually does the collection.

 

Mike Cernovich reported the unmasking via Medium:

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.

OBAMA PRESIDENTIAL LIBRARY HOLDS SUSAN RICE NSC ‘UNMASKING’ DOCUMENTS, WON’T BE AVAILABLE TO PUBLIC

Posted on

The real collusion! Judicial Watch today announced that the National Security Council (NSC) on May 23, 2017, informed it by letter that the materials regarding the unmasking by Obama National Security Advisor Susan Rice of “the identities of any U.S. citizens associated with the Trump presidential campaign or transition team” were removed government possession.

 

Conveniently, documents from the Obama administration have been transferred to the Barack Obama Presidential Library and won’t be available to the public for the next five years.

 

Via Judicial Watch:

The NSC will not fulfill an April 4 Judicial Watch request for records regarding information relating to people “who were identified pursuant to intelligence collection activities.”

The agency also informed Judicial Watch that it would not turn over communications with any Intelligence Community member or agency concerning the alleged Russian involvement in the 2016 presidential election; the hacking of DNC computers; or the suspected communications between Russia and Trump campaign/transition officials. Specifically, the NSC told Judicial Watch:

Documents from the Obama administration have been transferred to the Barack Obama Presidential Library.  You may send your request to the Obama Library.  However, you should be aware that under the Presidential Records Act, Presidential records remain closed to the public for five years after an administration has left office.

 

President of Judicial Watch, Tom Fitton had this to say about the breaking news, “Prosecutors, Congress, and the public will want to know when the National Security Council shipped off the records about potential intelligence abuses by the Susan Rice and others in the Obama White House to the memory hole of the Obama Presidential Library. We are considering our legal options but we hope that the Special Counsel and Congress also consider their options and get these records.”

HOUSE ISSUES 7 SUBPOENAS TO OBAMA-ERA FBI,CIA & NSA RELATED TO UNMASKING BY SUSAN RICE, SUSAN POWER & JOHN BRENNAN

Posted on

 

House Intelligence Committee issued seven subpoenas to National Security Agency, FBI and the CIA for information about the “unmasking” incidents requested by top Obama officials national security adviser Susan Rice, former CIA Director John Brennan and former United Nations Ambassador Samantha Power.

 

The Wall Street Journal reported:

The House Intelligence Committee issued seven subpoenas on Wednesday, in a sign that its investigation into alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 election is ramping up in scope and intensity, according to people familiar with the matter.

The Republican-led committee issued four subpoenas related to the Russia investigation. Three subpoenas are related to questions about how and why the names of associates of President Donald Trump were unredacted and distributed within classified reports by Obama administration officials during the transition between administrations.

The committee has subpoenaed the National Security Agency, the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Central Intelligence Agency for information about what is called “unmasking.” Republicans on the committee have been pushing for a thorough investigation of how the names of Trump campaign officials became exposed in classified intelligence reports based off intelligence community intercepts.

Those subpoenas seek information on requests made by former national security adviser Susan Rice, former CIA Director John Brennan and former United Nations Ambassador Samantha Power for names to be unmasked in classified material. The three didn’t personally receive subpoenas, the people familiar with the matte said. Mr. Brennan, Ms. Rice and Ms. Power didn’t immediately
