Fox News revealed Monday that former National Security Adviser Susan Rice was responsible for “unmasking” the names of Donald Trump’s campaign associates after they were caught on incidental electronic surveillance.
According to the network’s sources, Rice requested last year that the names – redacted in official reports because they were American citizens caught on tape without a warrant – be unmasked and then spread throughout the intelligence community.
The information made its way to everyone on President Obama’s National Security Council, top people at the Pentagon, former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, and former CIA Director John Brennan.
As Fox’s Adam Housley pointed out, it’s simply more confirmation that the Obama administration was – and, in many ways, still is – doing everything it could to sabotage the incoming president:
This comes in the wake of Evelyn Farkas’ television interview last month in which the former Obama deputy secretary of defense said in part: “I was urging my former colleagues and, frankly speaking, the people on the Hill – it was more actually aimed at telling the Hill people, get as much information as you can, get as much intelligence as you can, before President Obama leaves the administration.”
Now, when is the media going to acknowledge that Trump had it right all along? When he said that Obama wiretapped his New York offices: TRUE. When he said there were forces in the U.S. intelligence community leaking classified information to the press in an attempt to cripple his presidency: TRUE.
Liberals have put the most nefarious spin possible on each and every one of Trump’s statements and actions, but they never stop to consider the possibility that he might…actually…be…telling…the…truth! Even though, time after time, his seemingly-outrageous claims are ultimately vindicated. Maybe not 100% of the time, but more often than any of his critics dare admit. Much more often.
It’s still impossible to know what’s really going on here, but we do know that Democrats have reached a level of panic previously unseen. Either they really believe they have evidence of a massive and historic foreign conspiracy or they see Trump as the biggest threat to their “progress” to come along in decades.
Obama is in quite the jam at this point, because no one’s buying the story that Rice did this without his express authorization. This came from the president, and it’s only a matter of time before we get that confirmation. Then the American public will deserve and demand an explanation. If it’s anything short of: “Trump committed treason,” then hold onto your hats, because no other justification that will suffice.
