New information has come to light that under President Obama, former national security adviser Susan Rice requested to unmask names of Trump transition officials that were being surveilled.
It seems as though President Trump has been proven right. Yet again.
Liberals scratched their heads when President Trump claimed Obama had his “wires tapped.” They were outraged.
How dare he make such claim against the messiah Obama?
This is like when Trump claimed there were rapists coming across our borders or that there were celebrations after the Twin Towers fell.
At the time those allegations seemed ludicrous and liberals went off on him. But Trump was right.
And I hate to be that pundit that comes across as a blind follower. Trump isn’t perfect and I disagree with him on somethings.
But underneath the controversy and bluster, the man isn’t wrong.
When he made the accusation that he was spied on by the Obama administration, I believed him. Why wouldn’t I? He’s continuously been proven correct in the midst of opposition.
This latest revelation about Susan Rice requesting an unmasking of information collected of Trump and his officials raises serious questions.
It gives more legitimacy to Trump’s claim of being spied on by Obama.
It may even be the missing piece to Obama’s latest scandal that’s been described as worse then Watergate.
Why did Susan Rice ask for an Unmasking?
Computer logs left behind by President Obama’s team indicate his national security adviser, Susan Rice, accessed numerous intelligence reports during his last seven months in office.
The reports contained National Security Agency intercepts of Donald Trump and his associates.
Rice ordered U.S. spy agencies to produce “detailed spreadsheets” of phone calls involving Donald Trump and his aides during his run for the presidency.
The names were part of incidental electronic surveillance of candidate and President-elect Trump and those close to him, for up to a year before he took office.
Not a typo. For up to an entire year he was spied on!
When names of Americans are incidentally collected, they are supposed to be masked, meaning the names are redacted from the official reports.
There’s of course loopholes and ways to unmask through certain means. But typically Americans are to be protected from incidental collection. In this case, they were not.
Obama politicized everything. This should come as no shocker.
Obama can stay vacationing and Ben Rhodes can continue to deny this scandal, but everyday it keeps unraveling. And as we’ve seen time after time, Trump’s crazy allegation will be proven and the libs will be the one’s left looking like idiots.
As soon as Trump made the allegation that he was spied on, I simply just nodded my head and thought, yeah, Obama probably did do that.
After everything that was revealed about the man from his time in office (not by the media though), I simply wouldn’t put it past him.
White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer seemingly dodged questions about the revelations at Monday’s briefing.
He declined to specifically comment on Rice or motives of the Obama administration.
“I’m not going to comment on this any further until [congressional] committees have come to a conclusion.”
And then he of course pointed out how the the media has no interest in stories like these. Yet they are always fond to suspect conspiracy-theories of Russia working with Trump.
Senator Rand Paul wants Susan Rice to testify before congress and had this to say:
“If it is allowed, we shouldn’t be allowing it, but I don’t think should just discount how big a deal it is that Susan Rice was looking at these, and she needs to be asked, ‘Did President Obama ask her to do this? Was this a directive from President Obama? I think she should testify under oath on this.”
I’m really starting to like Rand Paul with each passing day. He certainly doesn’t want to downplay the potential importance of this situation. And any real patriot wouldn’t.
