President Trump Tweets Fox Report Highlighting Surveillance “A Year Before Inauguration”…

President Trump tweeted earlier today referencing a news report by Fox reporter Adam Housley which ran on Fox and Friends.

The substance of the segment (video below) is quite startling as it highlights reports from inside the intelligence community of surveillance on Donald Trump “for up to a year before inauguration”.

Adam Housley reporting:

[Partial Transcript] We know that there was this. There was electronic surveillance on Trump and the people close to Donald Trump, including some supporters, for up to a year before inauguration. That information was disseminated, we’re told, through NSA channels. It’s unprecedented, I’m told, the way this was done. The mention of US citizens is supposed to be masked, whether, that means taken out of a report.

So, for example, I call somebody in Bulgaria and that’s picked up some how by our agencies and there’s nothing there involving national security, there’s nothing there involving a crime, that report would come out and say American #1 or my name would not be there.

What I’m told now is that when these reports came out names were there and that is unprecedented.

Basically, they say that the information that was unmasking, this unmasked information, these names of Americans who had done nothing wrong was disseminated to all of the NSC [National Security Council], some at DOD [Department of Defense], Clapper [James Clapper, Office of Direction of National Intelligence], Brennan [John Brennan, CIA Director], basically the people at the top.

They also say I’m told that [Susan] Rice knew about this possibly as well. Now, I know there are reports out there that she is the one that ordered this. We do not know who reported this because we have not spoken to Devin Nunes about this. He has not at least told us about these things. So we don’t know what papers he saw. Our sources don’t know what papers he saw.

They just tell me the information of unmasking names from Donald Trump and his team and his family was disseminated to a very select few at the top and was done so for a significant amount of time. And that is blockbuster guys. That is, as far as we know, hasn’t been done in modern times. (source)

Additionally, Bloomberg News -Eli Lake- is reporting that President Obama’s National Security Advisor Susan Rice was the person who actually requested the “unmasking” of the individual names.

White House lawyers last month discovered that the former national security adviser Susan Rice requested the identities of U.S. persons in raw intelligence reports on dozens of occasions that connect to the Donald Trump transition and campaign, according to U.S. officials familiar with the matter.

The pattern of Rice’s requests was discovered in a National Security Council review of the government’s policy on “unmasking” the identities of individuals in the U.S. who are not targets of electronic eavesdropping, but whose communications are collected incidentally. Normally those names are redacted from summaries of monitored conversations and appear in reports as something like “U.S. Person One.” (link)

This confirms (in part) a report late last night from Mike Cernovich.  Bloomberg’s Eli Lake goes on to outline President Trump’s National Security Council’s senior director for intelligence, Ezra Cohen-Watnick, as the person who discovered the unmasking requests by Susan Rice.

The evidence outlined by Lake appears to include logs of Rice’s requests to unmask U.S. persons discovered on computer systems within the National Security Council (NSC).

In response to the original concerns expressed by Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes, Susan Rice previously said: “I know nothing about this. I was surprised to see reports from Chairman Nunes on that account today.”

    Susan Rice was a director at the Atlantic Council, 2006-2008. In 2008 when Obama appointed her ambassador to the UN she took a leave of absence. She still participates in AC events.

    Alperovitch, Chalupa, Farkas, Rice – all are associated with the Atlantic Council. Why does this organization keep showing up?

    Their Dinu Patriciu Eurasia Center “seeks to promote an agenda of regional cooperation and integration” and “bring about energy development” in Ukraine. They have announced a cooperative agreement with Burisma Group, a natural gas producer in Ukraine. Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, is on Burisma’s Board of Directors.

    Alperovitch is one person removed from Clinton. Chalupa, Farkas, and Rice are directly connected to Clinton. Joe Biden is directly connected to Clinton. What is going on with Burisma? Have they or their Board donated to the Clinton Foundation?

      (May 16, 2014) In late 2013, Slotshevski denied that he owned Burisma, and an employee in his office reported that he sold the company – but no evidence of this has come to light yet. Two oligarchs, Ihor Kolomojski and Viktor Pinchuk, have been named as the possible new owners.

      DW could not reach Kolomojski for comment about Burisma. Pinchuk refused to comment, but is said to have a good relationship with the Democratic Party in the US

        April 21, 2014 – Energy Security: Over the coming weeks, expert teams from several U.S. government agencies will travel to the region to help Ukraine….

        https://obamawhitehouse.archives.gov/the-press-office/2014/04/21/fact-sheet-us-crisis-support-package-ukraine

        September 22, 2014 – It is interesting that the topic of energy sector has been actively discussed by the Ukrainian Head of the State Petro Poroshenko at the meeting with US President Barack Obama on September 18. As a result, a team of American energy efficiency experts will come to Kiev in the nearest future to promote the energy security strengthening of Ukraine.

        This is about direct support of domestic reforms from the US, modernization of infrastructure and the development of gas production sector. In particular, US companies will be able to invest directly in Ukraine. Also, Ukrainian companies will be able to attract Western specialists to import sophisticated drilling equipment from the United States. All of these have been already happening, but the US government can stimulate this activity through a State Department-sponsored program. Also, the US government can accelerate these investments by funding the US Export-Import Bank.

        Victor Pinchuk [] has directed between $10 million and $25 million to the foundation. He has lent his private plane to the Clintons and traveled to Los Angeles in 2011 to attend Mr. Clinton’s star-studded 65th birthday celebration.

        Between September 2011 and November 2012, Douglas E. Schoen, a former political consultant for Mr. Clinton, arranged about a dozen meetings with State Department officials on behalf of or with Mr. Pinchuk to discuss the continuing political crisis in Ukraine, according to reports Mr. Schoen filed as a registered lobbyist.

        “I had breakfast with Pinchuk. He will see you at the Brookings lunch,” Melanne Verveer, a Ukrainian-American then working for the State Department, wrote in a June 2012 email to Mrs. Clinton.

        (2014) “Best-in-class drilling equipment run by American specialists allowed significant increase in drilling performance”

        There is another, larger, dimension to the Russia Narrative. Gas & pipelines. Trump is perceived as a threat, hence the non-stop attacks on him.

    Folks please be patient! If you think for one minute this will not lead to prosecutions you are sadly mistaken. Our LION is setting this all up for his great take down of the Obozo administration. I understand the need for instant satisfaction. However, the anticipation of death is far greater than death itself. HRC gave us the biggest gift in the world when she sent this tweet out on October 31,2016.

    Dr. Steve Precznik tells you clearly in the video below that by her sending out this tweet, her and her husband decided to take the action to another level (they decided to start a coup). He and the white hats had to conduct a counter coup on November 2nd to save our Republic. That counter-coup was the NYPD releasing the info on Anthony Weiner and the laptop. It completely killed the Clinton narrative about Trump and the Russians they were hoping to use to swing the undecided to their camp. We know in the end that 75% of the undecided went to Trump.

    They can swing this in the MSM all they want but at the end of the day they are DEAD! When you have unmasking of conversations that had absolutely nothing to do with Russia, your cover is dead. Please take a 2nd look at our President’s tweet and notice the hashtag that he uses #FBI. Folks he just sent over another nuclear bomb and he is telling them and us that people will be arrested and indited. PATIENCE is a must in this!

    One of our fellow Treepers wrote the following earlier this morning on the Presidential thread (George Wallace):

    Too many people are assuming that all Trump has is the Nunes material.

    I don’t agree. Suspect he has a huge amount of damning information implicating Obama, Clinton, Lynch, Brennan, Clapper and many others.

    I also think he has had it for some time – certainly before the tweets, perhaps as early as January.

    He (and Bannon) have decided to leak it slowly. Death by a thousand cuts.

    This is a very effective strategy. If he dumped the lot, the MSM would be able to try and cover for their Democratic masters and make the issue go away. It also keeps his enemies on the defensive and constantly looking over their shoulder. Over time, they will become demoralized and exhausted, making it easier to finish them off.

    It’s a classic strategy used by detectives in serious criminal investigations. Gather evidence, but don’t reveal it.

    It also allows him to continually demonstrate what lying scumbags these people are. For example, I expect Rice will claim that it was all ‘legal’ pursuant to Obama’s change of dissemination policy and that she would never have done any unmasking unless it was 100% legal and justified. She goes on MSM and they duly sanitize her criminal activity. Then, boom – more information will come out, for example showing she was involved in unmasking and dissemination during the campaign.

    He is 1000000% right! The drip, drip, drip is killing them and neutralizing them daily. You will never again see any of Obozo’s clowns on tv other than in handcuffs. They cannot speak because they are burying their graves deeper and deeper. You will never ever again see Barry from Hawaii step foot on the mainland of the US. He may one day come back to HI but he will never step foot anywhere else in the US. This allows our President to forge ahead with eliminating Barrack Hussein Obama from the books. By the time 2 years are up, there won’t be a single EO our piece of legislation left in that POS’s name. The remaining 6 years will be used to MAGA!

      Oh, yes, FL. So true.

      Chess match.

      Remember The Bodyguard movie, Whitney & Kevin Costner? Remember when they went to Kevin’s dad’s remote cabin and he & his dad dragged out the ol’ chess board, blew off the heavy layer of dust and continued the game where they’d left off long ago?

      Wish someone could post that snippet…

      This is The Game of All Chess Games. Real Time. If one doesn’t know that’s the game, then they will miss the match.

      Trump is the declared winner.

      Sadly, at this high stake level, he might even be unopposed, but the fact that the DIMMS aren’t up to the 4D game does not make him any less the winner.

      The DIMMS never should have started the game if they didn’t know how 4D chess was played.

      Slowly, drip-by-drip, play-by-play, move-by-move, it plays out. P45 loses a pawn or two so DIMMS still think they are in the game. But. They. Aren’t – other than just being pawns drawn around the board like silly little rats following the cheese, but the cheese keeps moving.

      Yes, the dragnet enlarges as the game goes on.

      Trap is being set for lots of big fish.

      Soon. Checkmate.

      Enjoy the game. It’s one of a kind and you’ll never see it again.

    The important question now, said Lake, is “was this standard operating procedure in the last couple years of the Obama administration?”

    “We know that something like this happened when it came to the Israelis and members of Congress,” said Lake. “When else did it happen?”

    1) Congressional people were spied on.
    2) Anybody related to Israel was spied on.
    3) Anybody opposing the Iranian deal was spied on.
    4) News opponents were spied on.

    I think it was SOP – Standard operating procedure for Obama people to spy on and distribute intelligence on anybody that was deemed a possible threat to their agenda.

    This I think happened all the time in Obama’s last 2-3 years. He had lost Congress entirely and had only his
    Pen and

    The tactic from the left will be
    “This is no big deal, This is normal behavior and fine.”

    Just like they are trying to convince people the murder and rape and destruction by illegals should be considered normal behavior and to expect it now.

    Remember rule number 1 in analyzing left speak.

    The left believes firmly that they do not have to obey any laws or ever tell the truth. Whatever they say is the truth and the law. Laws and regulations are only to be used against people they hate.

    Getting leftists to be accountable to the law is the hardest task in he entire world.

    • I should point out one thing about the Flynn unmasking and leaking story. When I had an above Top Secret clearance back in the day, I signed papers that said, among other things, I agreed to not travel to Eastern Bloc countries for 8 years and I agreed to be surveiled for I can’t remember how long. My point is that Gen. Flynn was probably under something similar and his unmasking is legal insofar as he agreed to it beforehand. The leaking to the failing NYT is illegal however. Other people caught up in the BHO admin’s spying are another matter. Illegal as hell! #DrainTheSwamp

    The Bush’s, Clinton’s, and Obama have been spying on & blackmailing their rivals and others forever. That’s why they were spying on Trump & associates. They wanted to be able to blackmail him to keep him from exposing them & prosecuting their crimes. And, they wanted leverage to affect his policies. That’s the game that’s been played in DC since these creatures came onto the scene. That’s why we’re in such bad shape as a country. National policy has been dictated to the benefit the few at the expense of the rest many.

    The only difference now is that Trump is not playing their game, he is not compromised, and he is not blackmail-able.

    I believe that he’s been preparing for this for years.

    I believe that the despicable three (Bush/Clinton/Obama clans) have really pissed him off with what they’ve done to this country. That’s why he ran for president. He’s going to destroy them.

    He also might sacrifice himself in the process. He’s preparing Pence just in case. That’s why Pence is so visible and involved unlike any VP in memory. Trump has gotten the country’s (world’s) attention. He’s building up to such a crescendo of truth & revelation that nobody will be able to ignore it or spin it or deny it or condone it. But, it’ll be like the friend that told their friend that their spouse has been cheating on them for years. Often, the friendship ends or is never the same because the friend gets ostracized or becomes a constant reminder about the issue or the cheated friend chooses to stay with the cheater and ends the friendship. It’s human nature. That’s why Trump may step down after 4 years.

    Also, I wonder how many in the DC power structure are secretly rooting for Trump to prevail so they can finally rid themselves of the noose around their neck?

    That is, they were setting up the excuse that when it came out they were spying on DJT, they could say it was “inadvertent” because his name came up when they were monitoring the Russians to keep America safe.

    Of course this is nonsense, but it gives the Dems some plausible cover instead of saying, “We’re low-down socialist globalist traitorous scum,” which increasingly true by the day…
