Sen. James Lankford, (R-OK) and U.S. Rep. Peter King (R-NY) each members of their respective intelligence committees have expressed concerns about revelations regarding pre-election surveillance by the Obama administration of Donald Trump’s presidential campaign. The spying, which has received scant coverage in the mainstream media, was initially disclosed by President Trump and mocked by Obama operatives and their colluders in the press.
Susan Rice, Obama’s national security adviser, is at the heart of the scrutiny.
Sen. Langford takes the allegations seriously, saying, “The accusation is that people in the Obama administration were using their offices to get access to political information. They may have been using classified documents to release names and target individuals. That is not legal and these are serious accusations. We hope Susan Rice will meet with us.”
Congressman King agreed, stating that a thorough investigation is needed. “If these accusations are true, it rises to a level of a very high scandal because it is such an abuse of privacy. It violates the law and it undermines the presidency,“ King said.
Delusional Susan Rice, Obama’s national security adviser must think she’s still on his payroll. Few will forget her deceptive talking points (video) as she made the rounds of Sunday morning network news shows following the 2012 attack at the U.S. embassy in Benghazi, Libya.. Four Americans, including Ambassador Christopher Stevens, were killed — not by supposed protesters upset over a video depicting Mohammad, as she claimed — but by terrorists.
Circa News exposes the facts regarding the computer logs that former President Obama’s team left behind in the White House indicating Susan Rice accessed numerous intelligence reports during Obama’s last seven months in office that contained National Security Agency intercepts involving Donald Trump and his associates.
Intelligence sources said the logs discovered by National Security Council staff suggested Rice’s interest in the NSA materials, some of which included unmasked Americans’ identities, appeared to begin last July around the time Trump secured the GOP nomination and accelerated after Trump’s election in November and launched a transition that continued through January.
Andrew McCarthy, writing for National Review points out, “Her interest was not in national security but to advance the political interests of the Democratic party,” calling Susan Rice’s White House unmasking “an abuse of power” and “Watergate-style scandal.” McCarthy, a former chief federal prosecutor, reminds his readers “the thing to bear in mind is that the White House does not do investigations — not criminal investigations, not intelligence investigations.”
Obama’s White House honed its skills in cover-ups.
