I wrote about the Trump Transition team being wiretapped and unmasked previously and specifically spoke about Ben Rhodes or Valerie Jarrett being persons likely to have exposed names of Trump team members who were collected during wiretaps of foreign nationals in the US.
Well, today another report just came out specifically naming Susan Rice, the former Obama administration UN Ambassador and probably greatest political hack and shrill, as being the person who unmasked the names of people associated with Donald Trump.
She “then sent to all those at the National Security Council, some at the Defense Department, then-Director of National Intelligence James Clapper and then-CIA Director John Brennan – essentially, the officials at the top, including former Rice deputy Ben Rhodes.”
Yep, there’s the connection and lap dogs who did the dirty work of the President and don’t for one second think that what they were doing wasn’t known to the former President both overtly and covertly.
What is ultimately going to happen is people are going to go to federal prison and this dark cloud will taint the prior presidency that will make “Watergate” look like a school kids playground story when all the dust settles. The precedence this sets and frankly, power it displays that can be manipulated and used against US citizens demonstrates why oversight and transparency is necessary and why distrust of the government is at an all-time high.
