Scandal: Sources says Susan Rice requested unmasking of Trump transition names

Susan Rice has always been the bagman, or in this case, bagwoman, for the Obama White House. It was she who appeared on five Sunday talk shows peddling the fiction that it was anger over a Z-list YouTube video that was behind the 2012 Benghazi murders, rather than it being a planned terrorist attack.

From Fox News:
Multiple sources tell Fox News that Susan Rice, former national security adviser under then-President Barack Obama, requested to unmask the names of Trump transition officials caught up in surveillance.

The unmasked names, of people associated with Donald Trump, were 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.

The names were part of incidental electronic surveillance of candidate and President-elect Trump and people close to him, including family members, for up to a year before he took office.

It was not clear how Rice knew to ask for the names to be unmasked, but the question was being posed by the sources late Monday.
Rice, who is not credible in my book, denies the charges.
