Leaks are BAD! M’Kay?

leakers
On Friday August 4, 2017 Attorney General Sessions announced that there will now be a HUGE initiative to crackdown on LEAKS

I love this guy! Finally someone is going to call a plumber! This Administration is drowning in leaks!

A.G. Jeff Sessions said, “the culture of leaking must stop.”

Since January, Jeff Sessions said the Justice Department has “more than tripled the number of active leak investigations, as compared to the number pending at the end of the Obama administration.”

Press briefing on the investigation into leaks of classified material

A.G. Sessions announces the DOJ’s plans to pursue the staggering amount of illegal leaks of classified information happening. Already 4 people have been charged. He warns all that are participating in leaks to beware, the DOJ and FBI are watching, so don’t do it. The press must think twice before printing these leaks because they are putting lives in danger, and hindering our country’s ability to have relationships with the rest of the world.


Why are leaks bad?

Not everyone seems to agree that leaks are bad. (Just ask Maxine Waters.)

THEY ARE BAD. 

There is a big difference between what we call “Whistleblowing” and “Leaking”.

“Whistleblowing” is only bad for the persons that are being told on. It exposes illegal behavior so that the corruption can stop.

A whistleblower is a person who exposes any kind of information or activity that is deemed illegal, unethical, or not correct within an organization that is either private or public.


“Leaking” is a deliberate release of information, usually sensitive and/or classified meant to paint a person, persons or group/company/organization/government in a very bad light, with no real evidence or confirmation that something illegal actually happened, usually by anonymous sources or sources and information that can not be authentically confirmed.
(There isn’t much reason to leak good information, normally people just make that public anyway…)

Leaks don’t have to be completely true or true at all, and many times it’s half truths spun in a way to look very negative. They are usually classified information so they can’t be clarified and/or corrected, so the many who hear these leaks end up believing them as truth. (This is a form of “fake news”, ….half-truth classified leaks, that can’t be debunked, because the information can’t be talked about.)

Leaking is used as a weapon in politics, business, and journalism. Negative information gets much more attention than positive information, because most people feel better about themselves when they read, hear or see that someone else is doing worse off than they are.

Leaks are designed to imply negativity or the possibility of crimes, but with no  absolute evidence. More so than not there are no victims, it’s only an implication designed to erode confidence in the subject. This is why they work so well as a weapon in politics and business.

Leaking can be extremely dangerous when involving government confidentiality regarding war, undercover law enforcement, foreign policy and relationships, and other sensitive and confidential information.

The Importance of Stopping Leaks

Kellyanne Conway said finding leakers is easier than leakers think. She might be right.

“I think it’s easier to figure out who’s leaking than some of the leakers realize,” Conway said.

Step 1: Find a pool of suspects
Step 2: Shrink your pool using digital tools
Step 3: Subpoena and grab personal data
Step 4: Question and prosecute

Attorney Jay Sekulow provides EVIDENCE Obama set up coup against Trump

17 days before Barack Obama was to leave office on January 3, 2017, he set up the Trump administration for leaks by issuing Executive Order 12333, under section 2.3 specifically, also approved by Attorney General Loretta Lynch, Director of National Intelligence James Clapper and the National Security Advisor Susan Rice.

Obama’s order expanded the power of the National Security Agency (NSA) to share globally intercepted communications, including phone calls, with 16 other government intelligence agencies, greatly compounding the likelihood of future leaks from a much greater number of Obama loyalists still working in the Trump administration.

President Trump must revise Executive Order 12333, remove Obama’s loyalists from all government agencies and absolutely prosecute all White House leakers for espionage.

This change in the handling of classified information has created a shadow intelligence agency also known as “the deep state”. It is a soft coup to undermine the electoral vote and will of the American people. Until these issues are addressed and the holdovers are cleared, the leaks will continue, because there are too many people with there hands in the classified information cookie jar who do not support our president.

 

 

The Lame Duck Timeline Strongly Suggests President Obama Set Up Intelligence Scheme To Undermine Trump… February 17, 2017

Specifically through the use of a lame-duck executive order, President Obama authorized multiple intelligence agencies to have access to Signals Intelligence (SIGINT) including phone call intercepts.

First, as the New York Times reported that in its final days, the Obama Administration expanded the power of the National Security Agency (NSA) to share globally intercepted personal communication with the government’s 16 other intelligence agencies before applying any privacy protections.

Second, the new rules, which were issued in an unclassified document, entitled Procedures for the Availability or Dissemination of Raw Signals Intelligence Information by the National Security Agency (NSA), significantly relaxed longstanding limits on what the NSA may do with the information gathered by its most powerful surveillance operations.

These operations are largely unregulated by American wiretapping laws. Surveillances include collecting satellite transmissions, phone calls, and emails that cross network switches abroad, and messages between people abroad that cross domestic network switches.

The changes initiated by the Obama Administration in its waning days empowered far more agents and officials to search through raw intelligence data. As a direct consequence of the change in policy, it appears that the prospect of intel leaks grew exponentially.

Attorney General Loretta Lynch signed the new rules permitting the NSA to disseminate raw signals intelligence information on January 3, 2017 after Director of National Intelligence James Clapper signed them on December 15, 2016. (read more)

The dates here are key, because it was after the 2016 election when DNI James Clapper was reported to be recommending the removal of NSA head, Admiral Michael Rogers:

[November 19th, 2016] (Reuters) The heads of the Pentagon and the U.S. intelligence community have recommended to President Barack Obama that the director of the National Security Agency, Admiral Michael Rogers, be removed from his position, sources familiar with the matter said on Saturday.
The recommendation by Defense Secretary Ash Carter and Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, first reported by The Washington Post, was delivered to the White House last month. (read more)

  • The election was Tuesday, November 8th.
  • Admiral Michael Rogers had a visit with President Trump on Friday, November 11th.
  • According to the Executive Order rule changes DNI James Clapper signed off on December 15th.
  • General Michael Flynn spoke to the Russian Ambassador on December 29th
  • Dec 29th 2016 – Obama announces sanctions on Russia

Confirmed: John Brennan Colluded With Foreign Spies to Defeat Trump

April 19, 2017, 12:04 am
This is the open scandal that Congress should investigate.

An article in the Guardian in April provides more confirmation that John Brennan was the American progenitor of political espionage aimed at defeating Donald Trump. One side did collude with foreign powers to tip the election — Hillary’s.

Seeking to retain his position as CIA director under Hillary, Brennan teamed up with British spies and Estonian spies to cripple Trump’s candidacy. He used their phony intelligence as a pretext for a multi-agency investigation into Trump, which led the FBI to probe a computer server connected to Trump Tower and gave cover to Susan Rice, among other Hillary supporters, to spy on Trump and his people.

John Brennan’s CIA operated like a branch office of the Hillary campaign, leaking out mentions of this bogus investigation to the press in the hopes of inflicting maximum political damage on Trump.

A supporter of the American Communist Party at the height of the Cold War, Brennan brought into the CIA a raft of subversives and gave them plum positions from which to gather and leak political espionage on Trump.

The Guardian story is written in a style designed to flatter its sources (they are cast as high-minded whistleblowers), but the upshot of it is devastating for them, nonetheless, and explains why all the criminal leaks against Trump first originated in the British press. According to the story, Brennan got his anti-Trump tips primarily from British spies but also Estonian spies and others. The story confirms that the seed of the espionage into Trump was planted by Estonia. The BBC’s Paul Wood reported last year that the intelligence agency of an unnamed Baltic State had tipped Brennan off in April 2016 to a conversation purporting to show that the Kremlin was funneling cash into the Trump campaign.

Any other CIA director would have disregarded such a flaky tip, recognizing that Estonia was eager to see Trump lose (its officials had bought into Hillary’s propaganda that Trump was going to pull out of NATO and leave Baltic countries exposed to Putin). But Brennan opportunistically seized on it, as he later that summer seized on the half-baked intelligence of British spy agencies (also full of officials who wanted to see Trump lose).

British spy head Robert Hannigan “passed material in summer 2016 to the CIA chief, John Brennan.” To ensure that these flaky tips leaked out, Brennan disseminated them on Capitol Hill. It then turned up on the front page of the New York Times.

All of this took place at the very moment Brennan was auditioning for Hillary. He desperately wanted to keep his job and despised Trump for his alleged “Muslim ban,” a matter near and dear to Brennan’s heart. Not only was he an apologist for the Muslim Brotherhood, but Brennan’s Islamophilia dated to his days in college, when he spent a year in Cairo learning Arabic and taking courses in Middle Eastern studies and later he got a graduate degree with an emphasis in Middle Eastern studies.

Out of this Islamophilia came a special dislike of Michael Flynn, who had planned to rip up the Obama-era “reset” with Muslim countries. Furious with Flynn for his apostasy from political correctness, Brennan and other Obama aides couldn’t resist the temptation to take him out after rifling through transcripts of his calls with the Russian ambassador. They caught him in a lie to Mike Pence and made sure the press knew about it.

Leak Leak Leak. That was one of the very first substantially damaging leaks that came out of the Trump Administration. It is still a “go to” talking point I see often from liberals, democrats, and Trump Haters that are clinging to the Russian/Trump Collusion story.

Former U.N. Amb. Power Unmasked ‘Hundreds,’ Despite Not Being Intel Official

Nunes disclosed in his letter that the former Obama administration had “easy access” to sensitive classified information and that they may have used it to “achieve partisan political purposes, including the selective, anonymous leaking of such information.”

Congressional investigators uncovered that “one official [whose] position has no apparent intelligence-related function”—now believed to be Power—”made hundreds of unmasking requests during the final year of the Obama administration.”

Little justification was provided for the request of this sensitive classified information, which government insiders described as outside the purview of a U.N. ambassador.
One official noted that the amount of unmasking from someone in a position that really had no need for unmasking of raw intel was in and of itself disturbing.

“Asking for an unmasking is rare at the [National Security Council] or the State Department. It is frankly shocking that anyone would be asking for dozens, and if there are really hundreds it is indefensible,” said the former official. “It does make me wonder why [National Security Agency] didn’t stop her [Power], by questioning this practice and getting the head of NSA to raise it with the president or the national security adviser.”
Ben Rhodes has also been identified as a ‘person of interest’ in the investigation by lawmakers.

“The [intelligence] committee also understands that Obama-era officials sought the identification of Trump transition officials within intelligence reports,” according to Nunes’s letter. “However, there was no meaningful explanations offered by these officials as to why they needed or how the would use this U.S. personal information, and thus, the committee is left with the impression that these officials may have used this information for improper purposes, including the possibility of leaking.”

“More pointedly,” the letter states, “some of the requests for unminimized U.S. person information were followed by anonymous leaks of those names to the media.”

The current climate of leaks is creating even more hostility and divisions within our country. It’s possibly putting people’s lives at risk, (by exposing under cover investigations and making those involved vulnerable.) But most importantly it is negatively affecting our country’s ability to make better and more fair trade deals, and share/receive important classified information with other world leaders regarding national security.

 

A letter from H.R. McMaster said Susan Rice will keep her top-secret security clearance

Obama’s National Security Adviser Susan Rice was unmasking members of President Trump’s team and other Americans, Trump’s own national security adviser, H.R. McMaster, sent an official letter giving her unfettered and continuing access to classified information and waiving her “need-to-know” requirement on anything she viewed or received during her tenure.

This action by McMasters, amongst many other shady and questionable actions by the General lead me to believe that he does not have our President’s best interest in mind. President Trump doesn’t seem to agree with me yet. He issued a statement today conveying his support for General McMaster.

However, he did the same just before he fired Michael Flynn, Jim Comey, Anthony Scaramucci, Rience Priebus and I think he did the same just before Sean Spicer resigned. So, I hope this is just more of the same.

What is the plan moving forward?

Sessions Claims DOJ Is Reviewing Policy for Subpoenaing Media, Say Government, Congress Must Do Better

Sessions then detailed the steps he took to crack down on the leaking.

First, he pointed to his deputy, Rod Rosenstein, and the FBI Director to “monitor the progress of each leak.”

He also “appointed our U.S. Attorneys to prioritize cases involving unauthorized disclosures.”

From there, the attorney general claimed that he has “tripled the number of active leak investigations.”

He continued, “In response, the FBI has increased sources to leak cases and has created a new counterintelligence unit to manage these cases appeared simultaneously, this department is reviewing policies that impact leak investigations.”

Sessions also said that the Justice Department would be reviewing its policies regarding the subpoenaing of media.

“We respect the important role of the press plays, and will give them respect,” Sessions said. “They cannot place lives at risk. We must balance the press’s role with protecting our national security with the lives of those who serve in the intelligence community, the armed forces, and all law-abiding Americans.”

Sessions ended by doubling down on the promise that the leaking will end.

“We will not allow anonymous sources with security clearances to sell out our country,” he said.

“All of us in government and in every agency in Congress, and Congress must do better. Their first requirement is personal discipline, education, and repetition within our departments and agencies will make a difference. Prevention is what is required, and investigation of a leak is too late, really. The damage is done.”

YES! Unfortunately the damage is done. Preventative procedures can only help further damage.

How are/were leaks being used as weapons against the Trump Administration
BOMBSHELL revelations show how Obama “WEAPONIZED” intel against Trump
May 28, 2017

Obama administration officials may have actually outdone Nixon in the dirty tricks department and actually “weaponized” intelligence agencies against American citizens including — Trump team members.

As the New York Post reports, “New revelations have surfaced that the Obama administration abused intelligence during the election by launching a massive domestic-spy campaign that included snooping on Trump officials.

We now know the National Security Agency under President Barack Obama routinely violated privacy protections while snooping through foreign intercepts involving US citizens — and failed to disclose the breaches, prompting the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court a month before the election to rebuke administration officials.

The story concerns what’s known as “upstream” data collection under Section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, under which the NSA looks at the content of electronic communication. Upstream refers to intel scooped up about third parties: Person A sends Person B an e-mail mentioning Person C. Though Person C isn’t a party to the e-mail, his information will be scooped up and potentially used by the NSA.
Further, the number of NSA data searches about Americans mushroomed after Obama loosened rules for protecting such identities from government officials and thus the reporters they talk to.

A number of those searches were made from the White House, and included private citizens working for the Trump campaign, some of whose identities were leaked to the media. The revelations earned a stern rebuke from the ACLU and from civil-liberties champion Sen. Rand Paul.”

Apparently Sen. Rand Paul and the ACLU weren’t the only folks disturbed by US intel agencies being used for political purposes.

“The FISA court called it a “very serious Fourth Amendment issue” that NSA analysts — in violation of a 2011 rule change prohibiting officials from searching Americans’ information without a warrant — “had been conducting such queries in violation of that prohibition, with much greater frequency than had been previously disclosed to the Court.”

On top of failing to disclose breaches, ballooning data searches, and violating the 2011 rule change for warrantless searches, there’s another minor little problem revealed during these testimonies. Remember that little dossier linking Trump to some Russia connection? Remember the giant uproar caused by the dossier and the ensuing MONTHS of accusations by liberals and Democrat politicians practically calling for President Trump to be tried for treason?

Well, as it turns out “Obama intelligence officials really had no good reason attaching a summary of a dossier on Trump to a highly classified Russia briefing they gave to Obama just weeks before Trump took office.” Or shall we say, they had a reason, but it was a no good reason, and one of those no good reasons was John Brennan.
Under congressional questioning Tuesday, Obama’s CIA chief John Brennan said the dossier did not “in any way” factor into the agency’s assessment that Russia interfered in the election. Why not? Because as Obama intel czar James Clapper earlier testified, “We could not corroborate the sourcing.”

But that didn’t stop Brennan in January from attaching its contents to the official report for the president. He also included the unverified allegations in the briefing he gave Hill Democrats.

In so doing, Brennan virtually guaranteed that it would be leaked, which it promptly was.
In short, Brennan politicized raw intelligence. In fact, he politicized the entire CIA.
As it stands right now, Obama administration officials may have posed a far greater threat to the American election process than any outside entity. While fingers point at Donald Trump and his administration, it’s looking more and more like sleight of hand to divert our attention from the real shady dealings in the swamp. Trump needs to clean out every single Obama holdover, but for some reason, he’s taking his time.

So what the mainstream media doesn’t want to talk about is that the Obama Administration, (and now their holdovers,) have used and are still using their relaxed rules and their vast unmasking powers to unmask names and then leak information that could possibly make, (and most likely will make,) President Trump and his people look bad.

Then instead of calling them what they are…. leakers, they have been painted as heroes and have called them whistleblowers with no evidence that anything illegal has taken place except the leaking of classified information itself.

The expanding of the amount of people who now have access to the unmasked data has assured that there will be an endless flow of leaks. Not only that, but they have proven to be strategically leaked to do the most possible damage to the Trump Administration.

Hopefully with the changes that the Trump Administration has made with staff and the crackdown by the DOJ on prosecution of leakers with get the problem under control.

Guests Journalist, Sara Carter from Circa News and Buzz Patterson, Author, Retired Air Force Pilot, former Senior Military Aide to President Bill Clinton

This is the summarized version of the show that has now been deleted and I can’t find a new link to embed. (How convenient.) This is the link to the show summary on Sean Hannity’s site, April 5, 2017:  http://www.hannity.com/articles/shows-472046/radio-show-recap-apr-5-15713492/

Robert Buzz Patterson served 20 years as a pilot on active duty in the United States Air Force, from 1996-1998, Colonel Patterson was the Senior Military Aide to President Bill Clinton. During that time he was responsible for the President’s Emergency Satchel. He retired in 2001 to pursue a career as a writer, conservative political commentator and commercial airline pilot.

During the Clinton Administration, Susan Rice, served in the Clinton administration in various capacities: at the National Security Council (NSC) from 1993 to 1997; as director for international organizations and peacekeeping from 1993 to 1995; and as special assistant to the president and senior director for African affairs from 1995 to 1997.

According to Buzz Patterson, (while he was Senior Military Aide to President Clinton,) Susan Rice, was the person that talked President Bill Clinton into not accepting Osama Bin Laden from Sudan in 1996. The country had offered him up on a silver platter, and Susan Rice urged President Clinton not to take him, because according to her, there wasn’t enough legal foundation to justify it. If you take the time to process that tidbit of information, you may come to the same conclusion as I did…. How does this woman live with herself? How does she look herself in the mirror everyday?

Susan Rice unmasking revelations covered up by ABC, NBC, defended by CBS

Identities of U.S. persons in raw intelligence reports on dozens of occasions that connect to the Donald Trump transition and campaign.” With their identities unmasked, it allowed for someone to freely and illegally leak their names to the press. It’s controversial news but ABC and NBC both chose to ignore it that night, while CBS defended Rice.

Susan Rice is Former National Security Adviser to President Barack Obama. While serving under the Obama Administration, Rice has been accused of unmasking American citizens in incidental collections of National Security Surveillance. It’s still not clear if the unmasking was for legally legitimate reasons or was politically motivated.

However, due to former President Obama’s relaxation of the rules under executive order 12333 it’s quite possible that it was legal, but would not have been otherwise.

Full context: Susan Rice answers questions about Trump transition spying allegations April 4, 2017
http://www.pbs.org/newshour/rundown/full-context-susan-rice-answers-questions-trump-transition-spying-allegations/

Former National Security Adviser Susan Rice denied Tuesday that the Obama administration spied on Trump campaign associates for political reasons last year, though she acknowledged that on occasion she requested the identity of Americans swept up in U.S. surveillance efforts.

In an interview with MSNBC, Rice said she sometimes asked for the identity of Americans who communicated with foreign individuals, a request known as “unmasking” in intelligence jargon.

The interview came after Bloomberg’s Eli Lake reported that Rice sought out the identities of Trump associates while reviewing communications collected during surveillance of foreign targets. Conservative media commentators have said the reports back-up President Trump’s unsubstantiated claim last month that former President Barack Obama wiretapped Trump Tower during the 2016 presidential election.

Lake noted in his original report that in her role as national security adviser, Rice’s requests to unmask Americans swept up in foreign surveillance was “likely within the law.”

But Rice did not say if the individuals whose identities she requested included Mr. Trump or any of his campaign aides. She also denied the Obama administration ordered secret surveillance of Trump as part of a political operation.

“Absolutely false,” Rice told MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell.

Rice’s “unmasking” request last year and recent comments on her role in the surveillance efforts have placed her at the center of the wiretapping controversy in recent days. She also faced criticism Tuesday for denying that she had any knowledge that U.S. intelligence agencies in 2016 intercepted communications between Trump campaign associates and Russian officials.

House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif., last month announced the existence of White House documents that he said offered proof that the Obama administration intercepted Trump’s campaign communications while monitoring foreign officials, a practice called “incidental collection.”

The Washington Post on Tuesday cited the PBS NewsHour interview and raised questions about Rice’s recent comments on the wiretapping controversy, though the newspaper noted her denial was unclear due to the way the question had been presented.

To save time for broadcast, the full first question was summarized in the anchor intro leading into NewsHour’s March 22 interview with Susan Rice.

In the first question, PBS NewsHour’s Judy Woodruff asked Rice about Nunes’ disclosure that Trump “and the people around him may have been caught up in surveillance of foreign individuals and that their identities may have been disclosed. Do you know anything about this?” Woodruff added.

Susan Rice on Nunes allegations: ‘I know nothing about this’

“I know nothing about this. I was surprised to see reports from Chairman Nunes on that count today,” Rice answered. The full first question is unedited in the video above.

On Tuesday, Rice defended herself in the MSNBC interview, saying that her job as national security adviser involved seeking out information on U.S. surveillance efforts.

As a top national security official, Rice said, “I only receive what the intelligence community thinks I or any other senior official needs to see.” She added, “That’s necessary for me to do my job.”

On March 22, 2017 the PBS NewsHour’s Judy Woodruff interviewed Susan Rice, who served as national security adviser and UN ambassador under President Obama. In her first answer during the interview, in which Woodruff asked about allegations by House intelligence committee Chairman Devin Nunes that Trump transition officials may have been swept up in surveillance of foreigners during the end of the Obama administration, Rice said—in part—she knew “nothing about this.”

She seems to like to play with words, as she was quoted earlier this week on MSNBC, saying “I leaked nothing to nobody.” when asked if she leaked any of the unmasked names to the press. Leaking the names is a felony.

https://youtu.be/s1K4p3OLo7I

(According to MSM this video down plays the possibility of anything nefarious going on.)

In an interview Tuesday with MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell, former Obama administration national security advisor Susan Rice denies allegations from Fox News, Bloomberg, and other outlets that she used foreign intelligence intercepts to spy on members of the Trump campaign, including looking at documents whose subsequent leak ended the career of her successor, Gen. Mike Flynn. There are new twists in the investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election. Former Obama adviser Susan Rice defended herself from allegations by the Trump administration, saying, “I leaked nothing to nobody.” NBC’s Andrea Mitchell reports for TODAY.

(Which is actually a double negative.)

ROCKED: Angered Over Surveillance Scandal, Trump Has 3 Brutal Words For FBI
April 3, 2017 http://madworldnews.com/surveillance-scandal-trump-fbi/

Obviously angered by the explosive reports, Trump has three brutal words directly aimed at corrupt FBI Director James Comey for his role in Obama’s political surveillance scandal.

Trump posted the burning three-word message for Comey this morning on Twitter.

“This is unprecedented,” he said. The tweet is directed to “@FBI,” making it clear that Comey is not just part of the scandalous story but a root cause of political corruption, along with Obama and other top officials within his former administration.

According to Daily Mail, Trump also sent out a tweet praising the Fox News report which exposed the outrageous unmasking of Trump and his campaign in politically motivated surveillance, which was conducted by the Obama administration for an entire year before the inauguration.

This damning new evidence brings an avalanche of possible consequence for Comey after he publicly asked the Department of Justice on March 4 to denounce Trump’s initial claim of wiretapping. Breitbart reported, “Comey told officials at the Justice Department Trump’s claims are false and need to be corrected. Of particular concern is Trump’s insinuation that the FBI broke the law during its investigation of Russia’s involvement in the 2016 election.”

There was more than one unmasker, and Rice didn’t unmask Flynn April 4, 2017
http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/there-was-more-than-one-unmasker-and-rice-didnt-unmask-flynn/article/2619422?custom_click=rss

The Wall Street Journal reports today, based on information from a “Republican official” on the Hill, that at least two Trump transition staffers had their names unmasked by Obama administration officials.

One of them was former national security adviser Mike Flynn, whose conversations with Russia’s ambassador to the United States were leaked to the media. Flynn was ultimately forced to resign after less than a month in office because he had misrepresented the subject of his conversation to Vice President Mike Pence, who subsequently went on television and assured the nation, based on Flynn’s word, that he had not discussed the undoing of sanctions that President Barack Obama had just imposed.

But Rice unmasked someone else’s name in the context of conversations with officials from another foreign government — not Russia……the names of two U.S. citizens who were part of Mr. Trump’s transition team have been unmasked in intelligence reports.

One is Mr. Flynn and the other hasn’t been identified.

The official said Ms. Rice had requested the unmasking of at least one transition official—not Mr. Flynn—who was part of multiple foreign conversations that weren’t related to Russia.

Breaking: Look Who Gave Susan Rice The Unmasking OK! 
April 3, 2017
http://redstatewatcher.com/article.asp?id=71550

The White House Counsel’s office identified Rice as the person responsible for the unmasking after examining Rice’s document log requests. The reports Rice requested to see are kept under tightly-controlled conditions. Each person must log her name before being granted access to them.

Upon learning of Rice’s actions, H. R. McMaster dispatched his close aide Derek Harvey to Capitol Hill to brief Chairman Nunes.


“Unmasking” is the process of identifying individuals whose communications were caught in the dragnet of intelligence gathering. While conducting investigations into terrorism and other related crimes, intelligence analysts incidentally capture conversations about parties not subject to the search warrant. The identities of individuals who are not under investigation are kept confidential, for legal and moral reasons.

Under President Obama, the unmasking rules were changed. Circa originally reported:

As his presidency drew to a close, Barack Obama’s top aides routinely reviewed intelligence reports gleaned from the National Security Agency’s incidental intercepts of Americans abroad, taking advantage of rules their boss relaxed starting in 2011 to help the government better fight terrorism, espionage by foreign enemies and hacking threats, Circa has learned.

Three people close to President Obama, including his “fall guy” for Benghazi (Susan Rice), had authorization to unmask.

UNCATEGORIZED BREAKING: What Trump Just Found in The White House Logs Secures Susan Rice Will Get Longest Prison Sentence Possible – RedConservative

“What was produced by the intelligence community at the request of Ms. Rice were detailed spreadsheets of intercepted phone calls with unmasked Trump associates in perfectly legal conversations with individuals,” diGenova told The Daily Caller News Foundation Investigative Group Monday.

“The overheard conversations involved no illegal activity by anybody of the Trump associates, or anyone they were speaking with,” diGenova said. “In short, the only apparent illegal activity was the unmasking of the people in the calls.”

Susan Rice is also the same person that mislead the public about why the attack at Benghazi happened. According to her the attack evolved out of a protest against an offensive internet video.

Why Susan Rice, Not Hillary Clinton, Took the Fall for Benghazi
June 28, 2016
https://www.bloomberg.com/view/articles/2016-06-28/why-susan-rice-not-hillary-clinton-took-the-fall-for-benghazi

On Benghazi day, let’s spare a few thoughts for President Barack Obama’s national security adviser, Susan Rice. Yes, the headlines all say the House Select Committee on Benghazi couldn’t find any new dirt on Hillary Clinton. But the woman who almost replaced her as secretary of state did not come out looking very prepared.

Back in September 2012, Rice was ambassador to the United Nations and was President Barack Obama’s first choice to replace Clinton as secretary of state. But her nomination was scuttled after she appeared on the Sunday news shows to discuss that month’s attacks on a U.S. special mission and CIA annex in Benghazi. Rice stuck to the talking points she had been given and said the attack evolved out of a protest against an offensive internet video.

The final report from the Republicans on the Benghazi committee did not find for example that Obama had nixed a rescue attempt or that Clinton personally disapproved security measures for Benghazi before the attack. It concluded that various rescue teams waited far too long before deploying to Libya, but it did not show the president called off these teams.

Rice was not well-prepared for this task. Not only was she not a participant in the senior-level meetings to respond to the Benghazi attack, she wasn’t even briefed by an intelligence analyst before appearing on the Sunday shows. She told the select committee that she was unaware at the time that the CIA maintained an annex at the Benghazi compound. Rhodes and senior Obama adviser David Plouffe briefed Rice instead.

The talking points that informed Rice’s appearances after the Benghazi attacks were based on talking points developed initially by the CIA for the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence. …..the line about the internet video protests was based initially on an editing error in an intelligence report from the day after the attack.

This would appear to let Rhodes and Rice off the hook. It was the CIA’s fault in an editing error. But the White House also earns some blame as well.

Mid-level State Department officials e-mailed each other in disbelief about what Rice said on the Sunday shows. Clinton herself talked about the al-Qaeda links to the attackers in private conversations with Egyptian and Libyan officials as well as a personal e-mail to her daughter Chelsea Clinton.

Obama’s defenders might say that all of this is how the game is played. There is some truth to this. In democratic societies, it’s not enough to just present the public with facts. You have to string those facts together into a story in order to persuade people to support your policies. Narratives make governing possible.

But narratives are not everything. And this is a lesson that Obama has yet to learn. Whether it’s his attorney general excising Omar Mateen’s references to Islamic State in his 911 calls, or the White House’s decision to call terror rampages “mass shootings,” the narrative often seems more important than the policy it’s meant to sell. Nearly four years ago in Benghazi, the president’s narrative about terrorism and Libya went up in flames. The story his administration told about a protest and an internet video couldn’t save it.

EXCLUSIVE – Benghazi Hero Kris Paronto: Susan Rice ‘Needs to Be in Jail’ to Show Politicians ‘They Are No Longer Untouchable’ April 6, 2017
http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2017/04/06/exclusive-father-of-benghazi-fallen-hero-perhaps-susan-rice-should-take-a-lie-detector-test/

Former U.S. Army Ranger and Benghazi survivor Kris “Tanto” Paronto told Breitbart News that he believes former President Barack Obama National Security adviser Susan Rice “needs to be in jail” for her decision to willfully unmask the identities of United States citizens connected to President Donald Trump’s transition team.

Paronto added, “The Trump administration has been given the perfect opportunity to set an example, or make an example, out of the type of politician that she is and show these other politicians that they are no longer untouchable.”

“I thought Hillary Clinton was bad,” Paronto said. “This woman [Susan Rice] surpasses her as far as her evilness and willingness to subvert America with this administration and to continually lie.” He added, “This woman broke the law. She put lives in danger. She put officers in danger. She put American citizens in danger by doing that. She has no value for human life unless it benefits her politics or benefits her friendship with the crooked administration that was in power for the previous eight years. That woman, at the very least, needs to be in jail. She has no value of human life.”

Instead, Paronto suggested Rice lied to protect Obama and questioned her allegiance to the United States. “There is no gray area; she lied. And she’s still protecting her mentor, Obama, from that administration. Her allegiance lies, for some reason misguidedly with them, not with the United States of America.” Paronto also criticized Rice for saying that Bowe Bergdahl served with honor and distinction. “I didn’t know a traitor could serve with honorable distinction and then get six of his fellow soldiers killed trying to find him. The woman has no integrity. She should have no credibility. And honestly, in my opinion, she should be in prison for unmasking and putting American citizens in danger.”

He said he hopes President Trump and Attorney General Jeff Sessions will go after Rice but said, “I don’t think justice will take place because I haven’t seen it yet. “Justice could have taken place with Hillary Clinton because she did violate national security; she did lie. Justice could have taken place” when it was discovered that interim DNC Chairwoman Donna Brazile gave Clinton’s camp questions before a town hall debate while she was a contributor to CNN. He added, “Justice could happen with Susan Rice and her lying on national TV continually about a video causing Benghazi when it didn’t.”

Rice said it was a YouTube video, not then-President Barack Obama’s foreign policy, that prompted the Benghazi attack that left Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens and three others dead. It was not.

Paronto was among four surviving warriors who defended more than 30 American personnel in two American facilities in Benghazi on September 11, 2012. The attacks were carried out by the Islamic militant group Ansar al-Sharia. In addition to Ambassador Stevens, former Navy SEALs Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty and State Department IT specialist Sean Smith were also killed.


Susan Rice somehow manages to make Benghazi cover-up seem minor 
April 4, 2017
http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2017/apr/4/susan-rice-somehow-manages-to-make-benghazi-cover-/

Well, that explains the deafening silence from President Obama.

All these months, it turns out, it was his right-hand hatchet gal and exposed serial prevaricator Susan Rice who was behind the scenes in his administration working all the levers of the most powerful espionage machine on planet Earth to spy on Mr. Obama’s political enemies.

This is jaw-dropping, bombshell information.

Not because it reveals Susan“Benghazi was about a video”Rice to be a liar. We already knew that.

Not because it exposed the Obama administration as the most nakedly partisan presidency in modern history, willing to use even the most sacred powers of the federal government for political purposes. We already knew that too.

What is so astonishing about the revelation that Ms. Rice was the one unmasking Donald Trump and his campaign before, during and after he won the presidency is that it doesn’t get any closer to Barack Obama himself.


Exclusive–Father of Benghazi Fallen Hero: ‘Perhaps Susan Rice Should Take a Lie Detector Test’ 
April 6, 2017
http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2017/04/06/exclusive-benghazi-hero-kris-paronto-susan-rice-needs-be-jail-show-politicians-they-no-longer-untouchable/

The father of CIA contract security officer Tyrone Woods, one of the four Americans killed in the Sept. 11, 2012 attacks on American facilities in Benghazi, Libya, told Breitbart News that former national security adviser Susan Rice should answer questions about her handling of intelligence reports while being wired to a lie detector.

“I am an attorney, and every attorney, the jury instructions we always give: ‘If a witness has been proven false in part of their testimony, then all of their testimony is presumed to be less truthful,” said Charles Woods, who became one of the most vocal family members of the four men. “That is the situation we have with Susan Rice.”

Woods said Rice lied to the American people five times on the Sunday after the Benghazi attacks, when she told viewers watching five different news programs the attack was triggered by a video on YouTube that depicted the Prophet Mohammad in a negative light.

“Two weeks ago, she said she did not know anything about the unmasking of Michael Flynn,” the former administrative law judge said.

“We have a pattern of not being truthful,” he said. “I makes me wonder why she wasn’t fired several years ago, when it was proven she lied to the American public those five times. Why wasn’t she fired? The only conclusion I can reach is that she worked for an organization whose values were based on deceiving the American people.”

Instead of being fired, Rice was rewarded, because

she shared the values of the people she worked for and worked with, Woods said.

In January 2016, Woods challenged former secretary of state Hillary Clinton to take a lie detector test regarding the claims that she did not tell Woods and other Benghazi family members that the attacks were sparked because of an offensive video. Woods also volunteered to take a lie detector test himself. “Perhaps Susan Rice should take a lie detector test, as well?” he asked.

Woods said he has first-hand experience with the government, starting with a phone call with his son while Tyrone was still on active-duty in the Navy. “Do I believe that I am monitored? Yes,” he said.

During the conversation, the SEAL told his father that the government monitors all phone calls and if certain keywords are used in the conversation, the government flags the conversation for follow-up, he said.

Woods said when he attended the 2014 Conservative Political Action Conference he encountered another confirmation that the government was tracking him.

The attorney said he was going to give interviews at CPAC’s “Radio Row,” and in between interviews, he would call his wife to reflect and to pray with her.

After an interview with NRA Radio, Woods noticed that his contact list in his phone was smaller than it used to be, he said. “Every one of the media people, whether it had been Hannity or Fox News or whatever, all of those contacts had been scrubbed and then, all of the contacts that I have made with congressmen and senators–every one of those had been scrubbed.”

That night, Woods said he attended an event with a number of members of the intelligence community. “I mentioned what happened to my phone to a guy there from the CIA and he brought it over to a couple of whistleblowers at the same event. He said, ‘Have them look at your phone and tell them what happened.’”

Both men examined the phone and confirmed to Woods that someone from government had deleted his media and Capitol Hill contacts, he said.

One of the men told Woods: “It would have been very easy for someone to erase all of your contacts, but they wanted to give you a message that ‘We are listening to you. We are watching you and there are certain people, namely, media and congressmen and senators, that we don’t want you talking to anymore.”

WIKILEAKS PROVES OBAMA AND HILLARY ISSUED STAND DOWN ORDER IN BENGHAZI!! April 2017
http://usjournalreview.com/wikileaks-proves-obama-and-hillary-issued-stand-down-order-in-benghazi/

Wikileaks email dump has turned up undeniable evidence that Hillary was not only aware of the situation but actually ordered them to stay put and wait rather than upset the Lebanese government. Apparently, the arms trade with the Lebanese government was in jeopardy so Obama told Hillary to handle it as she saw fit.

Via USA Politics Today:

Clinton told Podesta that a few lives were a small price to pay to keep our sweet deals on weapons to the Lebanese flowing through Kurdistan and Caledonia:

“DOCUMENT NUMBER 1254869 CLEARLY SHOWS THAT CLINTON ADVISED PODESTA OF THEIR INTENT TO HAVE THE US MILITARY, WHICH WAS ONLY 3 MILES FROM THE CONSULATE WHEN THE ATTACK HAPPENED, STAY PUT AND OFFER NO HELP. ‘THE CIA WILL GET THEIR OWN PEOPLE OUT’ THE FORWARD COMMANDERS WERE TOLD.”

According to the email, he told Clinton to do “whatever she thought was best” to keep the weapons deals with Ghadafi from being lost to the Germans.

Knowing she was at fault didn’t stop Hillary from attacking Benghazi victim’s families during her 2016 presidential debates, did it?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lV-QblDLi_o&amp;feature=youtu.be

And she had the audacity to show remorse during the funeral and then attacking the victim’s families during the debates? It’s her fault that they died! She is an evil and corrupt politician who was given too much power by Barack Obama.


Update: May 2, 2017

Published on Apr 5, 2017

Days before leaving office, Susan Rice told NPR hack Rachel Martin that she and Obama removed all chemical weapons in Syria. This of course was another classic Susan Rice lie as over 100 people died, including babies in the latest Syrian chemical weapons attack by Bashir al-Assad.

So let me put this all together for you in case you may have missed something here:

  • Susan Rice advised President Bill Clinton to not take Osama Bin Laden when Sudan offered him up in 1996. Just 5 years before 9/11. 
  • Susan Rice lied about why the attack in Benghazi happened. She said it was some protest to a video. (Yeah, because protesters run around with RPGs and grenades.)
  • Susan Rice denied knowing anything about the unmasking and incidentally collection of people associated with Candidate/Pres-Elect/President Trump and his team. 
  • Susan Rice changed her story a week later after it was proven that she was the one who had unmasked, or at least one of the people to do so. She also claims that it was all done legally and happens all the time. ( Then why lie the first time around?)
  • Susan Rice told Rachel Martin, in an interview on NPR, that she and Obama removed all chemical weapons in Syria. This of course was another classic Susan Rice lie.  April 4, 2017 over 100 people died, including babies in the latest Syrian chemical weapons attack by Bashir al-Assad.

But I’ll let you decide for yourself, what you think of Susan Rice. If you ask me she’s just as evil as her partner in crime Hillary Clinton. I am looking forward to hearing her testify and tell her side of the story of this unmasking and leaking scandal under oath. However after her past of lying, it will be hard to take her testimony as the honest truth.
