The entire Trump-Russia story has been concocted by the Left in order to first, derail his campaign, then to malign and de-legitimize his presidency. There is no doubt in my opinion that serial liar Susan Rice used her office to spread enough info out there in hopes of it being leaked to the media. Obama was behind this as well.
I’ve heard it spun that “why would she do something illegal and leave a paper trail to be found?”, but they never dreamed that Trump would be elected, so hence the need to take him down through leaking innuendo and complicate it by stonewalling.
SUSAN RICE’S UNRAVELING WEB OF LIES
Obama’s attack on our democracy becomes too clear to ignore.
Former President Barack Obama’s national security adviser Susan Rice is once again in the news, embroiled in a growing scandal. Bloomberg News has reported this week that Rice requested or directed the unmasking of the identities of U.S. persons in raw intelligence reports, who were involved with the Trump transition team. The communications of these individuals were apparently collected incidentally during the course of electronic monitoring of communications involving foreign officials of interest. Normally, Americans’ identities are masked, with generic references such as the title “U.S. Person One.”
According to Eli Lake’s Bloomberg report, “The intelligence reports were summaries of monitored conversations — primarily between foreign officials discussing the Trump transition, but also in some cases direct contact between members of the Trump team and monitored foreign officials. One U.S. official familiar with the reports said they contained valuable political information on the Trump transition such as whom the Trump team was meeting, the views of Trump associates on foreign policy matters and plans for the incoming administration.”
Daily Caller has reported that Rice “ordered U.S. spy agencies to produce ‘detailed spreadsheets’ of legal phone calls involving Donald Trump and his aides when he was running for president,” citing former U.S. Attorney Joseph diGenova as a source.
Circa has reported that Rice’s snooping actually preceded the election: “Susan Rice accessed numerous intelligence reports during Obama’s last seven months in office that contained National Security Agency intercepts involving Donald Trump and his associates.”
It also appears that the monitoring at issue had little if anything to do with the investigation of Russian interference in the presidential election.
