Report: Rice Unmasking Requests Were for Surveillance of “Daily Lives” of Trump Officials…

CTH Susan Rice Back Story:

Today, Catherine Herridge is reporting the unmasking requests made by former National Security Adviser were requests for details of daily surveillance of President Trump’s transition team regarding their daily life activity.

(New York) The intelligence reports at the center of the Susan Rice unmasking controversy were detailed, and almost resembled a private investigator’s file, according to a Republican congressman familiar with the documents.

“This is information about their everyday lives,” Rep. Peter King of New York, a member of the House Intelligence committee said. “Sort of like in a divorce case where lawyers are hired, investigators are hired just to find out what the other person is doing from morning until night and then you try to piece it together later on.”

On the House Intelligence Committee, only the Republican chairman, Devin Nunes of California, and the ranking Democrat Adam Schiff, also of California, have personally reviewed the intelligence reports. Some members were given broad outlines.

Nunes has consistently stated that the files caused him deep concern because the unmasking went beyond the former national security adviser Mike Flynn, and the information was not related to Moscow. (read more)

  1. John McLachlan says:

    If it is true that American citizens, supposedly, accidentally subjected to surveillance during the course of legitimate counter-intelligence operations had their identities unmasked, in briefings which were unrelated to national security, then that would constitute a crime, under existing laws.

    Apparently, that unmasking has been attributed to Susan Rice, who also commissioned a spreadsheet, which detailed the activities of Donald Trump and several others, yet which provided no evidence of unlawful collusion between Donald Trump or any of his associates with any foreign power.

    Despite her former exalted rank of National Security Advisor, I believe that Susan Rice was chosen for reasons other than her expertise upon security or intelligence matters.

    Some commenters have suggested that one of her principal qualifications was her willingness to lie to the public, on behalf of the Obama administration.

    If Susan Rice is aware of having committed any crime, she must be aware of what the potential consequences could be to herself, if she is ever convicted.

    Ideologue that she is, perhaps she may not be willing to take sole responsibility for any crimes committed by the Obama administration, if she became convinced that others, equally guilty could escape justice through lack of individual proof of guilt.

    I think that Susan Rice should be offered total immunity for all crimes in which she has been involved or had knowledge of, in exchange for testimony, under oath against other, more dangerous conspirators.

    She should also be provided with protection from possible arkancide.

            President Trump and his go to people are a relatively small group.

            As we have seen, the people in the juducial, governmental and Federal law enforcement swamp run deep, far and wide.

            Additionally, we have seen those in the juducial, governmental and law enforcement uniparty swamp have use all manner of obstruction and lawfare to assure nobody goes to jail over this or previous scandals.

            Ever since the housing crash spawned by Washington and Wall Street, the Swamp has grown increasingly more emboldened with the continued lack of any blowback on the part of a significant number of the citizenery for so many outrages like Fast & Furious, the IRS targetings, Benghazi, Bergdahl, Obamacare, Solyndra, the Roberts changing of words, the Clinton Foundation, Pallets of cash to Iran and now Incidental Survaillencegate, etc.

            The hair catches fire on those on the left at the slightest threat to their hussle. They disrupt political rally’s and traffic en masse.

            What does the silent majority do in the face of the loss of our Nation?

            We keep working our asses off to provide for our families and our other dependents the Left, Big Government and illegals.

            PDJT has done remarkable things in spite of the forces against him, but the roots of corruption in our government run so deep. I don’t see how it can be eliminated without some cataclysmic reset initiated at the ballot box during the mid-terms (if that is even enough any longer) or serious action on the part of the citizenry.

            We knew this was not going to be easy. But, learning we are living in a bigger Big Brother world then many of us expected and that it has infected our election process and representation has been a real eye-opener.

            I hope I am wrong. I hope a lot of people finally go to prison over this.

            It’s more serious then all the previous Obama scandals combined.

      The disinformation being spread by the media, political consultants, etc is interesting in that it is trying to normalize everyday intrusive surveillance. It is VERY illegal. If it included personal information that has ZERO to do with anything but their creepy voyeurism it is a huge crime worth 10 years per count. In flipping criminals to get the bigger fish, which is what the moronic Rich is as is the boss, you give immunity to the lower grade civil servants who were ORDERED by Rice, and the agency political appointee heads to “unmask” and provide non-intelligence personal gossip details and creepy intrusion. I think these are the people who have been ratting them out already to Nunes and the new bosses in town. Obama and his thugs probably threatened everyone in the food chain to get this stuff. And Obama, Rice and company don’t know what is already known. Leaking is now being used against them.

    As much as I’d love to see former Pres. Obama in jail, it’s not going to happen. Going after him will pull together his base and the Democrat Party.

    Much better to find out who else they went after like Bernie or even other Republicans like Rand Paul and Cruz. That will work on splitting the Democrats without the martyr like quality of going after Obama. There are people I know who still think Obama walks on water and shut down the slightest negative thing said about him.

    Absolutely there are people who voted for Obama, saw the light and then voted for Trump.

Mark my words, Hillary is ALSO mixed up in this debacle.
    Second, if the Trump Transition Team was spied on, that meant that VP PENCE was also spied on, since he was the head of the team.

My comment was about the tabloid stuff in relation to Trump’s Tweet saying Obama is bad/ sick, and that we are reading reports that he was investigated in a manner similarly to a private detective working on a divorce case. Those kinds of investigators go through trash, interview maids/maintenance people, teachers, store clerks, etc and watch people’s every move. Then you take into account what Nunes said, that the surveillance was very disturbing and had nothing to do with Russia, but it was intended to embarrass Trump. I think the whole reason Nunes went to Trump first is because the depth of the personal intrusion. Not a far stretch to think information, innocuous or not, was passed to a tabloid. Timing alone is suspicious.

  14. From the Fox article SD linked to:
    _NSA disseminated 4,290 FAA Section 702 intelligence reports that included U.S. person information. Of those 4,290 reports, the U.S. person information was masked in 3,168 reports and unmasked in 1,122 reports.”

    The report said “NSA is allowed to unmask the identity for the specific requesting recipient only under certain conditions and where specific additional controls are in place” and those conditions were met for “654 U.S. person identities” in 2015.

    Does anyone on the investigating committee have authority to go back and check that the people involved were “legally spied on” or was this more private investigating for perhaps other candidates and their acquaintances. -Looking for dirt?

    The Real Political Scandal? Actually, There Are Two

    https://www.bloomberg.com/view/articles/2017-04-05/the-real-political-scandal-actually-there-are-two

    Let me guess. You read about Obama’s national security adviser who unmasked the names of Trump associates who were caught up in surveillance and are bewildered that the media is even covering this nothing-burger. It’s a diversion from the real story: how the president and his associates collaborated with a Russian influence operation against the U.S. election. (Snip)

    Let me suggest that both stories are something-burgers. Depending on where the facts lead, we will know whether Obama’s national security adviser, Susan Rice, was justified in unmasking the names of Trump transition officials or whether the media’s obsession with the government’s Russia investigation was warranted.

    Then he runs with the Russia helped Trump story. Adam Schiff could have written this. Maybe he did?

      • Before the Justice Dept can do ANYTHING, there must be evidence presented and warrant(s) issued. The Important step is the FEDERAL TRIAL at the District Level, then APPEAL TO THE Federal Appellate Court and FINALLY to the Supreme Court. If any of the Justices decide, majority decision, then the court will take it up…Getting Gorsuch on the USSC is very important.

        Chief Justice Roberts will probably be ‘encouraged’ to retire at the very minimum if he was blackmailed.

        Personally I would like to see him own up to it and reverse his decisions/votes on those cases where he was coerced.

    No actually she doesn’t have game and that has been evident in spades forever. She is a dumbass moron that is not even a good liar. She is an affirmative action ‘two-fer’ that has been elevated well beyond her very shallow and limited abilities b/c of gender and race. If she was a white guy she would be stocking shelves @ Dollar General. Every advance or recognition she has received has been based on illlusion spun by a media badly infected with white guilt syndrome. She is an incompetent, pathetic, lightweight, spongeheaded loser liar. I hope she goes to prison for life.

      Rice was a foreign policy aide to Michael Dukakis during the 1988 presidential election.
      Rice attended Stanford University, where she received a Truman Scholarship and graduated with a BA in history in 1986. She earned membership in Phi Beta Kappa.[10][11]

      Awarded a Rhodes Scholarship, Rice attended New College, Oxford, where she earned an MPhil in 1988 and a DPhil in 1990. The Chatham House, the Royal Institute of International Affairs, honored her dissertation entitled Commonwealth Initiative in Zimbabwe, 1979–1980: Implication for International Peacekeeping as the UK’s most distinguished in international relations.[4][12]

        That was in the middle of the Affirmative Action White Guilt Feeding Frenzy. I went to college with them and then had to work with them. They would do NOTHING useful and throw a tantrum, break things (literally) and drop a lawsuit if they THOUGHT you wouldn’t kiss their rump. It was extremely frustrating since you had dead weight occupying space and costing $$$$.

    What happened to the story no US citizen could be surveilled without judicial review in the for of a FISA warrant. Rice said she was only “doing her job”. Note that’s what convicted Nazi’s used for a defense as they destroyed people. They did noy use warrants either.

    CHIEF JUSTICE ROBERTS AND OBAMACARE: I couldn’t help wondering what led Roberts to write such a strange opinion for his decision to support Obamacare. I suspected, briefly, that maybe Obama had something on him. Now that possibility no longer seems so farfetched. I don’t doubt for a moment that the Stasi like Obama people would use blackmail if they had the goods. Now we know how they could have gotten the goods on Roberts.

    These totalitarian ‘security’ capabilities cast shade on every decision the government makes.

    What is not being talked about is Operation Hammer, which was the illegal spying operation that was put into place by former CIA Director Brennan and DNI Clapper.

    Dennis Montgomery already has Whistleblower Status with the FBI and the FBI has had 47 hard drives and over 600 million pages for two years now.

    According to Mike Zullow and others, Fox News spent a week in 2013 filming Dennis Montgomery in Washington state and IT NEVER AIRED! Supposedly Carl Cameron.

    I called the Senate Intelligence committee this morning and left a message that the American People are fed up with Congressional investigations that are nothing but whitewashes and no one is every held accountable. I cited the Benghazi investigation as one such farce.

    Please call and bombard this committee with messages that they must not only get to the truth, but we expect former Obama officials TO BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE FOR ILLEGAL ACTIONS.

  36. If I understand current law on the NSA/surveillance, the government is permitted 2 hops from their targeted person of interest.
    So, if a place where Trump banks is also working with a Russian bank, then they can ‘surveil’ Trump’s bank’s communications. One “hop” would be when Trump or a personal secretary calls that bank to do banking. The second “hop” would be when that secretary communicates with Trump, with Hannity, with anyone.
    And they can call ALL of it “connected to foreign surveillance because banks intersect world wide.
    Remember the curious comments about a server of a bank pinging?
    Also, current law covers communications: text, email, facebook, twitter, etc., etc.
    How many Twitter followers does the president have?

  41. Doesn’t sound so, ‘Incidental’ to me.

    This has been going on, since at least 2015. Obama didn’t much like that President Trump was talking about the birth certificate.

    But of course, there’s no doubt they were spying on others, such as Bernie, and even Jeb! and who knows who else, to get Intel on Hillary’s would be opponent. When that comes out, this thing is going to blow up in a manner the Media cannot manage.

    I actually hope, they were focusing unduly upon Bernie Sanders. Not that he won’t be a good little soldier, but his would be supporters, will become very upset, and not able to contain themselves.

    Soon, President Trump is going to be forced to go nuclear, given the lack of a backbone by the GOPe.

    I would have loved to have been a fly on the wall or sitting log around the campfire as noisy waves crashed on shore as all the jokes started flying as their imaginations took hold of them.

    Did they vote on whether it was going to be China, Russia, or North Korea?

    Did they write a script for what everybody was supposed to say while their wireless was tapped?

    How many dead leads have dozens of people chased down?

    I bet they came up with enough spectacles to keep them in stitches for all the weeks, months, and years they had to plan this.

    Their sides hurt from laughing.

    “Whaddaya think, should I go to the Whitehouse correspondents dinner?”

    “What tie should I wear?”

    If Bannon was kicking around he would have offered to make a pair of antenna on a headband out of tin foil.

    I wonder how much thought went into exactly what to say when Billy Bush came calling. When you watch the tape, not just listened to the audio, you have to see the two of them exit the bus. Billy Bush is raring to go and has a hard time containing himself, while DJT walks down the stairs with complete composure and keeps it through the long walk to the venue. It was Billy drooling and trying to drag DJT into it, but he was having none of that.

    Seriously Bill Bush puts a mic on him and he didn’t notice or think twice about it?

    I would love to hear that entire tape.

    Where is Judicial Watch when we need them? Can’t we make this a matter of National Security, somehow?

    Hell, his whole life was an open mic, what’s another?

    Can you imagine how hard they laughed when he won?

    Every ounce of crow I have had to eat over miscalculating him from a far has been tastier than most gourmet food I have ever had. It sure is dark out there, but there is a dancing light.
