Susan Rice Is New Target Of Conservative Media Attacks

06 April, 2017, 03:26 | Author: Essie Rivera

In former National Security Adviser Susan Rice, Republicans have found a familiar foe.

"There is an established process to ask for senior national security officials to ask for the identity of USA persons in these reports".

The Obama administration's national security advisor played a central role in "unmasking" several Trump campaign officials who had been swept up in USA surveillance operations against foreign targets during last year's presidential election campaign, according to current White House officials.

Under the byline of Malia Zimmerman and Adam Housley, Fox reported that, "The U.S. intelligence official who 'unmasked, ' or exposed, the names of multiple private citizens affiliated with the Trump team is someone 'very well known, very high up, very senior in the intelligence world, ' a source told Fox News".

Ms. Rice insisted that unmasking was a routine part of her job and is necessary to understand the context of some intelligence reports. "I don't know how people continue to believe her". "She's a political appointee that reports directly to the president".

"We can't allow intelligence to be used for political purposes".

"The allegation is that somehow Obama administration officials utilised intelligence for political purposes".

It is a threat to our electoral democracy if a party in power is able to use the nation's intelligence apparatus to do opposition research on the party out of power. "That's absolutely false." It is what Rice did not expressly deny that is revealing. Nor would it be unusual for her to request those identities be unmasked. He said the probe into the Trump campaign and those involved in it were due to the White House being freaked out that Clinton lost. "I leaked nothing to nobody and never have and never would".

Derrick Rose out for Knicks season with torn meniscus in knee
On Sunday, The Vertical's Adrian Wojnarowski reported that Rose will miss the rest of the 2016-17 season with a torn meniscus. Last season saw Rose play in 66 games, his most since 2010-11, but a fractured orbital bone sidelined him for 16 games.

But, during the interview, Rice was less than open about whether she would willingly cooperate with questioning by the Congress. Susan Rice is a proven liar who doesn't deserve the benefit of the doubt, ever, on anything.

"You'd just look at them in totally frustrated anger". "Tell the story of how often Susan Rice, in the first few years on the job, got intelligence reports; how often she did unmasking; who else was being monitored".

Nobody can forget the attack on the USA diplomatic outpost in Libya in 2012. She repeatedly mouthed the Obama campaign talking points on the anti-Muslim video days after intelligence had established the terrorist connection to the Benghazi attack.

"I leaked nothing, to nobody, and never have and never would", Rice said in response to the latest charges and countercharges flowing from politically charged investigations into Russian interference in the presidential election.

The witch hunt against members of the Obama administration doesn't stop there. Doesn't she know why we're doing this? The democrats think of Rice as a scapegoat who served as a distraction in an FBI investigation into Trump's associates. "I was a national security advisor". According to Trump, he has been the victim of a nasty scheme, devised by the Obama team. Then we can find out if there was any improper or illegal activity. It emerged last week that he traveled to the White House last month, the night before he made an explosive allegation about Trump transition officials caught up in incidental surveillance.

Where the trail will ultimately lead remains to be seen.

The reports were likely based on routine surveillance of foreign officials. It is not too soon to begin asking, what did Barack Obama know and when did he know it?
