Unmasking the Unmasker or 'Black Rice is Very Unappetizing'

Well the big news story over the past couple days that most overtly liberal news media does not want to talk about because it distracts from their fake news of a Trump-Russia connection is the following..

Susan Rice while serving under Obama in capacity of National Security Adviser basically spied on people connected with Trump under the guise of spying on foreigners

This was done over a full year!

Then back in December she unmasked to the press Michael Flynn who was then part of Trump's transition team
For those who may be confused with the word as it applies here, "unmasking" is a term used when the identity of a U.S. citizen or lawful resident is revealed in classified intelligence reports.

Normally, when government officials receive intelligence reports, the names of American citizens are redacted or blocked to protect their privacy.

But officials can request that names, listed as “U.S. Person 1,” for example, be unmasked internally in order to give context about the potential value of the intelligence.

Unmasking is justified for national security reasons but is governed by strict rules across the U.S. intelligence apparatus that make it illegal to pursue for political reasons or to leak classified information generated by the process.
It is the accusation that Rice unmasked members for purely political reasons - ostensibly in coordination with president Oreo cookie - that has gotten Republicans smelling blood in the water.

They have for weeks signaled that they saw unmasking as the key to investigating the source of media leaks damaging to the Trump administration — such as the exposure of former Trump national security adviser Michael Flynn, who resigned in February after media reports revealed that he misled Vice President Pence about the contents of his discussions with the Russian ambassador.
To that end, earlier this month, Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) pressed FBI Director James Comey in a public Intelligence Committee hearing:

"It would be nice to know the universe of people who have the power to unmask a U.S. citizen’s name... because that might provide something of a road map to investigate who might’ve actually disseminated a masked U.S. citizen’s name.”

He went on to press Comey on whether specific Obama officials, including Rice, would have had the authority to request that a name be unmasked.

Comey answered:  “Yes, in general, and any other national security adviser would, I think, as a matter of their ordinary course of their business,” 
Shortly that hearing,  Rep. Devin Nunes (R., Calif.), the House panel’s chairman made his shocking announcement that he — and he alone — had viewed documents that showed inappropriate unmasking by Obama-era officials.

This of course rankled those soulless Democrats on the committee who wanted him removed as Chair, then tarred and feathered and tossed in a ditch if they could

So now yesterday Susan Rice came out to defend herself and told MSNBC the 'sanctuary city' news network for liberals, that the allegation of Obama administration officials utilized intelligence for political purposes was "absolutely false."

Rice added that “The notion, which some people are trying to suggest, that by asking for the identity of the American person is the same is leaking it — that’s completely false. There is no equivalence between so-called unmasking and leaking.”

Deceptive Lie..

And yet, that is precisely what many Republicans are rightly suggesting because otherwise there is no explanation for how the Washington Post and New York Times, two newspapers that deeply hate Trump, received on a virtual silver platter, stories about Mike Flynn's communications with intel-level detail.
Rice also Lied on March 22 when in a PBS interview she said "I know nothing" about unmasking Trump officials because less than two weeks later, we learn that she did.

So is there more to the story?

To quote Sarah Palin, 'Oh you betcha..'
The Wall Street Journal stated that a Republican official familiar with deliberations by GOP lawmakers on the House Intelligence Committee said that the names of two U.S. citizens who were part of Trump’s transition team have been unmasked in intelligence reports involving Flynn's documented phone conversations he had in late December with the Russian ambassador to the U.S.

One is Flynn..The other hasn’t been identified.

The WSJ then reports that Rice had requested the unmasking of at least one transition official — not Flynn — who was part of multiple foreign conversations that weren't related to Russia.
Now the kicker:  According to WSJ, "The Republican official and others said Ms. Rice wasn't the administration official who instigated Mr. Flynn’s unmasking."

In other words, it is not that Susan Rice was The unmasker; she was A unmasker

There was/is at least one more person either working independent or in collusion with Rice who went about publicly unmasking the identities of people in Trump's circle
The House Intelligence Committee has officially asked Rice to testify, supposedly under oath so it will be interesting to see if she continues to lie and risk perjury and jail time or be candid as to who directed her to spy on Trump.

Of course we all know who..

Susan Rice did not do any of this without that prick Obama's direct approval, inferred consent and/or direct orders
The liberal media may want to ignore this story as it plays Don Quixote in its never-ending delusional quest to try to get Trump impeached before Christmas, it is feeling more and more like when the smoke clears, this is going to be the Democrats' Watergate

And richly deserved...

Except this time if it can be proven Obama was directly involved and broke the law, he doesn't have a President in power sharing political affiliation like Nixon did with Ford to pardon him
If ever proven he broke the law, no one to protect Obama's dishonest bony negro ass from prison cellmates using his ass in well.. um, other ways..

Mmm what a thought..  We mean prison, not that other part..

We don't know who is the most rotten -- Obama, the people who served under him or those who call themselves Democrat who voted him in and still love & support him..

We'll call it a tie..
