New developments in the unmasking scandal are blowing up in the faces of Democrats and the media. Former Obama security adviser Susan Rice has now been implicated.
Just a couple of weeks ago, Rice claimed she had no knowledge of this.
The Washington Free Beacon reported:
On “PBS NewsHour” on March 22, Judy Woodruff asked Rice about Nunes’ claims.
“I know nothing about this,” Rice responded at the time. “I was surprised to see reports from Chairman Nunes on that count today.”
“So, today, I really don’t know to what Chairman Nunes was referring, but he said that whatever he was referring to was a legal, lawful surveillance, and that it was potentially incidental collection on American citizens,” added Rice, who went on to criticize Trump for his accusation that Obama wiretapped him during the presidential campaign.
Lake’s reporting on Monday for Bloomberg appears to contradict Rice’s answer.
Lake’s sources told him that Rice wanted to “unmask” the names of the Trump team members in the intelligence reports, who otherwise would show up with generic titles like “U.S. Person One.” “Unmasking” is not illegal when tied to a legitimate investigation, but civil liberty advocates worry the practice allows for backdoor surveillance of U.S. citizens.

The narrative created by Democrats and the media is falling apart in real time!
