Report: Top Obama Official Identified as Person Who Unmasked Trump Administration Officials?

A top Obama ally has allegedly been outed as the source for inappropriately ‘unmasking’ Trump administration officials, something the President’s allies claim is the only verifiable crime to have occurred surrounding the Democrat and liberal media Russian conspiracy theory.

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes had revealed that he received documents purporting to show that members of President Trump’s transition team, and possibly the president himself, were spied on by the Obama administration, and that the names of the officials were inappropriately “unmasked.”

Now, journalist and author Mike Cernovich has claimed that White House Counsel reviewed document log requests and discovered that former president Obama’s National Security Advisor Susan Rice was responsible.

Via Medium:

Susan Rice, who served as the National Security Adviser under President Obama, has been identified as the official who requested unmasking of incoming Trump officials, Cernovich Media can exclusively report.

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.

During a House Intelligence Committee hearing last month, Rep. Trey Gowdy grilled FBI Director James Comey about possible sources for leaks, particularly pertaining to former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn, who was forced to resign.

One of those sources discussed was Rice.

Three people close to President Obama had the authority to ‘unmask’ individuals caught up in ‘incidental’ surveillance – Former CIA Director John Brennan, former Attorney General Loretta Lynch, and Obama’s National Security advisor Susan Rice.

Cernovich is also asserting that New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman has been sitting on the explosive Susan Rice story in an attempt “to protect the reputation of former President Barack Obama.”

He claims Bloomberg failed to run the story as well.

Last week, senior Fox News correspondent, Adam Housley, revealed that Nunes already knew who unmasked Trump associates.

After studying his own information, Nunes said he was “actually alarmed” by the evidence that Trump officials had their identities exposed.

It’s even more alarming that it may have been a top Obama official who committed such an act.
