SUSAN RICE TRUMP RECORDS RESEMBLE A PRIVATE INVESTIGATOR’S DETAILED FILE; INTEL AGENCIES NOT COOPERATING WITH RICE PROBE
- Susan Rice intel reports were detailed, and almost resembled a private investigator’s file
- The FBI and NSA are run by James Comey and Mike Rogers, respectively. Both are holdovers from the Obama administration.
( Fox News ) 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.”
Lawmakers say intel agencies stonewalling on surveillance probe
( Fox News ) Lawmakers probing the surveillance of key officials in the Trump campaign and administration say the intelligence agencies now nominally under the president’s control are stonewalling efforts to get to the bottom of who revealed names and leaked protected information to the press.
…“Our requests are simply not being answered,” said one House Intelligence committee source about the lack of responsiveness. “The agencies are not really helping at all and there is truly a massive web for us to try and wade through.”
…The CIA is now headed by former Rep. Mike Pompeo, who himself served on the House Intelligence Committee prior to his nomination. The FBI and NSA are run by James Comey and Mike Rogers, respectively. Both are holdovers from the Obama administration. Last month, both men declined to appear at a private closed door House Intelligence Committee briefing and have not met with the committee members since.

President Trump said Wednesday that Susan Rice, the former national security advisor to President Obama, may have committed a crime by allegedly using U.S. intelligence agencies to spy on Trump campaign officials during the election.
“I think it’s going to be the biggest story,” Mr. Trump said in an interview with the New York Times. “It’s such an important story for our country and the world. It is one of the big stories of our time.”
“Do I think? Yes, I think,” he responded.
Ms. Rice said Tuesday the notion she used her powers to unmask members of the Trump campaign or transition for political purposes was “absolutely false,” describing the activities as routine.
“Absolutely not for any political purposes — to spy, expose anyone. I leaked nothing to nobody,” she told MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell.
Last night, fake news CNN finally decided to report on Susan Rice ‘unmasking’ scandal by calling it fake news and telling their viewers to ignore it. Networks like NBC, ABC and CBS remained ZERO coverage until today. Same with liberal Huffington Post. I bet they finally got their marching order last night to defend Susan Rice surveillance of Trump team as obviously ordered by her boss Barack Obama who is currently in some island in Tahiti frolicking with his boyfriends .
“So President Trump wants you to believe that he is the victim of a ‘crooked scheme.’ Those are his words. And here are our words: There is no evidence of any wrongdoing.
And, in fact, if anything the [national security adviser] asking for identities was a reflection of exactly how much traffic there was involving Trump people and foreign players. The White House blasting the press for not reporting on another fake scandal being peddled by right-wing media.”
CNN’s Don Lemon:
“So let us be very clear about this, there is no evidence whatsoever that the Trump team was surveilled or spied on illegally. There is no evidence that backs up the President’s original claim and on this program tonight we will not insult your intelligence by pretending otherwise, nor will we aid and abet the people trying to misinform you, the American people by creating a diversion. Not gonna do it.”
SUSAN RICE COULD FACE UP TO 10 YEARS IN JAIL: “leaking of signal intelligence” is a felony with sentence up to 10 years in jail
SUSAN RICE COULD BE CHARGED WITH FELONY AND FACE UP TO 10 YEARS IN JAIL! Susan Rice ordered U.S. spy agencies to produce “detailed spreadsheets” of Donald Trump’s phone calls despite of no illegal activities detected.
Her crime? Michael Doran, former NSC senior director, told Daily Caller ‘a leaking of signal intelligence” was committed. “That’s a felony. And you can get 10 years for that.” Doran pointed out “a stream of information that was supposed to be hermetically sealed from politics and the Obama administration found a way to blow a hole in that wall.”
“What was produced by the intelligence community at the request of Ms. Rice were detailed spreadsheets of intercepted phone calls with unmasked Trump associates in perfectly legal conversations with individuals,” diGenova told The Daily Caller News Foundation Investigative Group Monday.
“The overheard conversations involved no illegal activity by anybody of the Trump associates, or anyone they were speaking with,” diGenova said. “In short, the only apparent illegal activity was the unmasking of the people in the calls.”
Col. (Ret.) James Waurishuk, an NSC veteran and former deputy director for intelligence at the U.S. Central Command, told TheDCNF that many hands had to be involved throughout the Obama administration to launch such a political spying program.
“The surveillance initially is the responsibility of the National Security Agency,” Waurishuk said. “They have to abide by this guidance when one of the other agencies says, ‘we’re looking at this particular person which we would like to unmask.’”
“The lawyers and counsel at the NSA surely would be talking to the lawyers and members of counsel at CIA, or at the National Security Council or at the Director of National Intelligence or at the FBI,” he said. “It’s unbelievable of the level and degree of the administration to look for information on Donald Trump and his associates, his campaign team and his transition team. This is really, really serious stuff.”
Michael Doran, former NSC senior director, told TheDCNF Monday that “somebody blew a hole in the wall between national security secrets and partisan politics.” This “was a stream of information that was supposed to be hermetically sealed from politics and the Obama administration found a way to blow a hole in that wall.”
Doran charged that potential serious crimes were undertaken because “this is a leaking of signal intelligence.”
“That’s a felony,” he told TheDCNF. “And you can get 10 years for that. It is a tremendous abuse of the system. We’re not supposed to be monitoring American citizens. Bigger than the crime, is the breach of public trust.”
Waurishuk said he was most dismayed that “this is now using national intelligence assets and capabilities to spy on the elected, yet-to-be-seated president.”
“We’re looking at a potential constitutional crisis from the standpoint that we used an extremely strong capability that’s supposed to be used to safeguard and protect the country,” he said. “And we used it for political purposes by a sitting President. That takes on a new precedent.”
RAND PAUL: SUSAN RICE SHOULD TESTIFY BEFORE CONGRESS, UNDER OATH MUST ANSWER – ‘Did President Obama ask her to do this?
Rand Paul said Susan Rice needs to be asked: ‘Did President Obama ask her to do this? Was this a directive from President Obama? I think she should testify under oath on this.”
(DAILY CALLER) — GOP Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul said he believes former National Security Advisor Susan Rice should testify before Congress on her request to unmask the names of Trump transition officials collected during routine intelligence-gathering operations.
Paul argued the situation should not be downplayed, saying reforms need to be made to prevent individuals from being blackmailed on personal aspects of their lives through unmasking. He noted there was nothing stopping the former administration from looking through Trump officials and national security advisers’ conversations during the transition window.
“If it is allowed, we shouldn’t be allowing it, but I don’t think should just discount how big a deal it is that Susan Rice was looking at these,” he told reporters Monday. “And she needs to be asked, ‘Did President Obama ask her to do this? Was this a directive from President Obama? I think she should testify under oath on this.”
Paul said he has long thought there are too many people with the ability to unmask individuals.

Susan Rice committed a fraud for using the intelligence gathering system for political misuse. It’s also federal felony to share publicly the names after unmasking. She better call Barack and tell him to leave his boyfriends in Tahiti and come back to D.C.
Former Ambassador John Bolton told Lou Dobbs that if Susan Rice is the “unmasker” she is in serious legal trouble.
Via Lou Dobbs:
Ambassador John Bolton: This is stunning news. And you can’t, even somebody as senior as the National Security Advisor, can’t just decide they’d like to unmask names to find out whose name is involved in a particular intercept… If she said that even somebody as senior as her but her real motivation was political she was committing a kind of fraud on the intelligence gathering system and if she participated in that kind of fraud to help the political misuse of that intelligence she’s got serious legal problems here.
SUSAN RICE STARTED SPYING ON DONALD TRUMP IN JULY AFTER HIS PRIMARY VICTORY, SPIKED AFTER NOVEMBER ELECTION
