Obama aide Rice denies using intel to spy on Trump advisers

05 April 2017

Rice had requested that names be provided for otherwise unidentified USA people in dozens of raw intelligence reports relating to the Trump campaign, sources told The Washington Times on Monday.

She was responding to reports alleging she sought to "unmask" any Trump officials who cropped up in foreign surveillance reports.

"The smoking gun is that President Trump said he was wiretapped", he elaborated on MSNBC.

In its closing days, the Obama Administration scrambled to preserve as much intelligence as it could about Russian Federation and possible collusion with the Trump campaign.

Without diving too deep into the weeds of exposition, when intelligence analysts review the raw data from intelligence intercepts they understandably see everything coming across their screen, including the identities of USA persons who are not the targets of the surveillance order that authorized the collection in the first place.

In response to Nunes claims, Rice was interviewed on PBS and seemed completely taken aback by the implications and even suggested that Nunes was merely peddling falsehoods related to alleged "wiretapping" of Trump Tower by the Obama administration.

"There were occasions when I would receive a report in which a US person was referred to". The reports Rice requested to see are kept under tightly-controlled conditions.

It has now been revealed by former U.S. Attorney Joseph diGenova thatRice ordered "detailed spreadsheets " of Donald Trump and his aides -while he was running for president. Section 7.2 (c) of USSID 18 permits the "unmasking" of a US person's identity if it is necessary to understand the foreign intelligence information or assess its importance.

The new announcement comes a week after Mylan said it had recalled about 81,000 EpiPen devices in countries outside the US. EpiPens deliver an emergency dose of adrenaline to people at risk of a serious allergic reaction.

"I leaked nothing to nobody".

Imagine how it would have gone over if another Rice - Bush National Security Adviser Condoleezza Rice - had asked for the unmasking of Obama transition officials.

"Over eight years, for me and others who served, it was not uncommon, in fact it was necessary at times to make those requests to find out the identity of USA officials, on every topic under the sun when it seemed relevant", she said.

And last week, it was a debunked talking point that former Obama administration official Evelyn Farkas admitted spying on the Trump team.

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.

And on this program tonight, we will not insult your intelligence by pretending otherwise, nor will we will aid and abet the people who are trying to misinform you, the American people, by creating a diversion. "For us not to try to understand it would be a dereliction of duty".

MITCHELL: What did you first think when the president tweeted that President Obama had eavesdropped on him? She also offered some questionable explanations for the demasking process.

Many on Twitter were quick to note that two people with prominent access to the president were praising the words and actions of a man who had made many claims they found extremely objectionable.
