Here is how this went down, folks. The Obama Administration pulled a back door sneaky. While everybody was looking for a FISAWarrant or a Court Order to wiretap or surveil Trump, Obama was coming through the back door. And those Left wing apologists, finding no Court Orders, blasted Trump and his followers for making up a story.
Here is how Obama and his weaponized American Intelligence did it. They wiretapped foreigners – which is perfectly legal – and also recorded and labeled the Americans who these foreigners were talking to. It just so happened that it was most often Trump, his advisors, and other Team members. But it was no coincidence. American Intelligence deliberately wiretapped foreigners who they knew Trump and his team would be talking to, not to get information on the foreigners but rather on Trump and his Team.
Trapping Americans in a foreign wiretap requires American Intelligence to minimize or redact the name of the American citizen as well as what he or she said. This is to protect the privacy of American citizens for which there was no cause to invade their privacy. So in such a wiretap, the American citizen is referred to as American #1 and if there is a second American – American #2.
But Susan Rice came along and demanded that these American names be unmasked. Then she had all the wiretapped conversations typed up and sent out with all the names exposed. Obama did his part just weeks before leaving the White House by changing the rules on how Intelligence is shared, broadening the amount of Agencies who it could be shared with. Now as Obama went out the door this information could be spread all over the place and easily leaked without discovery. And it was deliberately leaked. That’s what happened to Flynn.
Devin Nunes went to the White House to the National Security Council on the 4th floor to witness this Susan Rice betrayal because, while he had security clearance to view the material he, or anyone else, was not allowed to remove it from the White House. So that is why he went to the White House.
All this, of course, was backed up by blabbermouth Evelyn Farkas who spilled the beans that Trump and his cohorts had been under surveillance for months as she begged Security officials to save the material illegally obtained and not let Trump destroy it when he became President.
So this is how you get a FAKE STORY about Trump colluding with the Russians, affecting the 2016 Presidential election making him an illegitimate President. This whole thing was a setup. The wiretapping of foreigners who just happened to be talking to Trump and his team, Susan Rice, the Benghazi liar, unmasking the Americans caught in a not so incidental wiretap, Obama changing the distribution rules of top secret intelligence so it could be shared with everybody but the White House gardener, the deliberate leaking of these highly secret conversations to the press, the press going ahead and printing the story even though they knew it was classified material – THIS WAS ALL A PUT UP JOB in order to bring Trump down with a false story that had no justification.
THIS MAKES NIXON AND WATERGATE LOOK LIKE MOTHER THERESA!
Top Obama Adviser Sought Names of Trump Associates in Intel
White House lawyers last month learned that the former national security adviser Susan Rice requested the identities of U.S. persons in raw intelligence reports on dozens of occasions that connect to the Donald Trump transition and campaign, according to U.S. officials familiar with the matter.
The pattern of Rice’s requests was discovered in a National Security Council review of the government’s policy on “unmasking” the identities of individuals in the U.S. who are not targets of electronic eavesdropping, but whose communications are collected incidentally. Normally those names are redacted from summaries of monitored conversations and appear in reports as something like “U.S. Person One.”
The National Security Council’s senior director for intelligence, Ezra Cohen-Watnick, was conducting the review, according to two U.S. officials who spoke with Bloomberg View on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss it publicly. In February Cohen-Watnick discovered Rice’s multiple requests to unmask U.S. persons in intelligence reports that related to Trump transition activities. He brought this to the attention of the White House General Counsel’s office, who reviewed more of Rice’s requests and instructed him to end his own research into the unmasking policy.
The intelligence reports were summaries of monitored conversations — primarily between foreign officials discussing the Trump transition, but also in some cases direct contact between members of the Trump team and monitored foreign officials. One U.S. official familiar with the reports said they contained valuable political information on the Trump transition such as whom the Trump team was meeting, the views of Trump associates on foreign policy matters and plans for the incoming administration.
Both the House and Senate intelligence committees are probing any ties between Trump associates and a Russian influence operation against Hillary Clinton during the election. The chairman of the House intelligence committee, Representative Devin Nunes, is also investigating how the Obama White House kept tabs on the Trump transition after the election through unmasking the names of Trump associates incidentally collected in government eavesdropping of foreign officials.
Rice herself has not spoken directly on the issue of unmasking. Last month when she was asked on the “PBS NewsHour” about reports that Trump transition officials, including Trump himself, were swept up in incidental intelligence collection, Rice said: “I know nothing about this,” adding, “I was surprised to see reports from Chairman Nunes on that account today.”
Rice’s requests to unmask the names of Trump transition officials do not vindicate Trump’s own tweets from March 4 in which he accused Obama of illegally tapping Trump Tower. There remains no evidence to support that claim.
But Rice’s multiple requests to learn the identities of Trump officials discussed in intelligence reports during the transition period does highlight a longstanding concern for civil liberties advocates about U.S. surveillance programs. The standard for senior officials to learn the names of U.S. persons incidentally collected is that it must have some foreign intelligence value, a standard that can apply to almost anything. This suggests Rice’s unmasking requests were likely within the law.
The news about Rice also sheds light on the strange behavior of Nunes in the last two weeks. It emerged last week that he traveled to the White House last month, the night before he made an explosive allegation about Trump transition officials caught up in incidental surveillance. At the time he said he needed to go to the White House because the reports were only on a database for the executive branch. It now appears that he needed to view computer systems within the National Security Council that would include the logs of Rice’s requests to unmask U.S. persons.
The ranking Democrat on the committee Nunes chairs, Representative Adam Schiff, viewed these reports on Friday. In comments to the press over the weekend he declined to discuss the contents of these reports, but also said it was highly unusual for the reports to be shown only to Nunes and not himself and other members of the committee.
Indeed, much about this is highly unusual: if not how the surveillance was collected, then certainly how and why it was disseminated.
