Susan Rice Is Guilty: Ordered UnMasking of Trump Team Members

"The leaks produced a nagging political sore for the new administration — leading to the ouster of National Security Adviser Michael Flynn, helping to drive down Trump’s approval ratings, and making it harder for him to push his program through."
NY Post: Do you suspect that the noise over Trump campaign contacts with the Russians is just a political hit arranged by Obama insiders before they left?
You got fresh evidence of that Monday, with news that then-National Security Adviser Susan Rice was behind the “unmasking” of Trumpites in transcripts of calls with Russian officials.
There is nothing on the public record that shows anyone on Team Trump said anything improper on those calls.
It’s no surprise that US spooks intercept foreign officials’ calls. But intelligence community reports don’t disclose the names of US citizens on the other end.
To get that info, a high official must (but rarely does) push to “unmask” the Americans’ names. Rice started doing just that last year.
The Obama administration later changed the classification of the “unmasked” transcripts, and other similar material, in order to spread the information as widely as possible within the government.
The result was that it made it relatively safe for someone (or someones) to leak the info to the press.
Rice certainly wasn’t politically naive about the political uses of intelligence information.
All of this puts the actions of House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes in clearer perspective. Obama team’s was trying to sabotage Team Trump.
