Trump, declining to provide evidence, says thinks Obama adviser Rice committed crime

Obama aide denies using intel to spy on Trump advisers

President Donald Trump said he thinks Susan Rice, the former national security adviser for President Obama, may have committed a crime when she had the names of Americans - which turned out to be Trump associates - unmasked in intelligence reports, according to a report. Rand Paul tweeted, "Smoking gun found!"

Kilmeade: Did Devin Nunes make the right choice?

She has now acknowledged that she did request unmasking, although just a few weeks ago she said, "I know nothing about this", on the PBS News Hour.

Only a select group of high-up officials in the intelligence and national security communities have the authority to make or approve unmasking requests, and they have to do so while complying with an elaborate set of minimization guidelines, compliance procedures and documentation, said Susan Hennessey, a national security fellow at the Brookings Institution and a former NSA lawyer. What do you think the politics is?

Also factor in says Fleitz, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes's disclosure in a March 22 press conference that the names of Trump campaign or transition officials were demasked from NSA reports that had nothing to do with Russian Federation or alleged wrongdoing by the Trump campaign. But you cant have the executive branch of government listening in on conversations. This is what happened. This is a real problem.

"I don't expect they will (declassify) because I think this is just more obstruction", Swalwell said. On Monday night, CNN's Don Lemon told his audience that he would not "aid and abet the people who are trying to misinform you, the American people, by creating a diversion".

At this point, Susan Rice must testify under oath in front of Congress to explain her actions. Now you could say, well we'll accept a lower standard for spying on foreigners, and even the privacy advocate that I am I can accept a somewhat of a lower standard for foreigners. "I have to treat the accusations that are made by the Trump administration officials as serious as well until we can actually get to the bottom of this and look at the facts".

White House Responds To Nunes Recusal With Eight Words
He added that he wants to speak to the ethics office as soon as possible "to expedite the dismissal of these false claims". There was concern that the presser showed Nunes was too entangled with Trump to properly investigate the Trump campaign.

Years later, that same high-level Central Intelligence Agency bureaucrat expands upon his creative writing skills by proclaiming - in the nation's leading newspaper - the presidential virtues of the secretary of state who promulgated his Benghazi lie to the American people and the world: Hillary Clinton.

Warner told NPR he thought Nunes' behavior has been "bizarre, to say the least", but he repeated that he and Burr were committed to working together in a less dramatic fashion and would continue to stick together as the inquiry goes on. No longer are the Democrats in the White House to cover for this shadowy figure. So I don't have complaints.

Ben Rhodes, one of the most frazzled former Obama officials on social media these days, tweeted yesterday, "Bullying people into covering routine work of any senior nat sec official as news is clear effort to distract from Qs about Trump and Russian Federation". The vice president is at our republican lunch in the Senate once or twice a week.

"We're talking about what's supposed to be incidental collection". It's mostly good, I don't have a negative thing to say about it really. What crime? Didn't say. And if they try to fly, bomb out their runways? You can find similar screaming headlines at Breitbart, the Daily Caller, and all the other conservative sites - and don't ask what's happening on Twitter (if you want to get a taste of the lunacy, search #SusanRice).

"Congress is the only game in town because this is all classified information,"McCarthy said". Was she instructed by the President? But going to war we have to decide will it be better or worse?

"It's not unusual at all", said Joshua Rovner, chair of worldwide politics and national security at Southern Methodist University and author of Fixing the Facts: National Security and the Politics of Intelligence. Are we threatened now by Syria, and if we go to war is Assad likely to use less chemical weapons or more?
