Then-National Security Adviser Susan Rice did at times ask that certain names in intelligence reports be “unmasked” in order to understand the context in which they were mentioned in intelligence reports, a former national security official told CBS News.

Rice asked for the identities of those Americans picked up during surveillance of foreign nationals when it was deemed important context for national security, and she did not ask that the information be disseminated broadly, according to this former official.

A Monday report by Bloomberg’s Eli Lake said that Rice requested the unmasking of Trump officials. Names of Americans swept up incidentally in the collection of intelligence are normally masked, or kept redacted, in intelligence briefings. However, the law provides for much leeway when it comes to unmasking by National Security Council officials, which suggests that Rice’s request was legal.

This type of request was not a special practice related to the Trump transition team, though the former official did not dispute the reporting by Bloomberg.

    YOU AND THIS GOVERNMENT HAD BETTER WORRY ABOUT THE MUSLIMS HERE AT HOME.

    PUBLIC LAW 414, PAGE 2, SECTION 212, WAS PASSED IN 1952 THAT BANS ALL PEOPLE TRYING TO DESTROY OUR COUNTY, AND MUSLIMS QUALIF TO BE DEPORTED. READ THE QURAN, THEIR BIBLE.

    COULD IT BE THAT OBAMA HAS SET US UP FOR HIM TO LEAD A MUSLIM INVASION OF OUR COUNTRY? READ THEIR BIBLE, THE QURAN.

    IF NOT,

    WHY ARE THERE 5 MUSLIM CAMPS IN N. VIRGINA, CLOSE TO DC.

    WHY TRY AND BUY UP ALL AMMO AND TAKE OUR GUNS.

    WHY ALLOW IN EXCESS OF 36 MUSLIM CAMPS. (PERHAPS HUNDREDS)

    (BUILD A FEMA CAMP IN EVERY STATE? SOME STATE HAS MORE THAN ONE. BUILT AND SUPPORTED BY YOUR TAX MONEY.

    WHY, WHILE IN OFFICE, DID HE SET HIS CABINET WITH MOSTLY MUSLIMS.

    WHY, WAS HILLIARY’S TOP AIDE A RADICAL MUSLIM,

    LAST WHY, DID OBAMA SEND BILLIONS TO HIS MUSLIM FRIENDS.

    Lying Ricey Dicey is just one of the many useful brainwashed, comrades of the Left army of trained, mindless minions that serve the Great and Powerful O, who is in Tahiti prancing around with other men wearing a pink thong and getting donged while his puppets sit back and get their backsides given an enema of the largest proportions. The few chosen sacrificial cows will be paraded before congress, to plead the 5th til the rest of the cows come home then go to some grazing fields, hopefully in a prison where they will get more action up the kazoo.

    Nothing to see here.

    She’s a black Muslim. Isn’t that illegal that Obamas every employee every post and station have a black Muslim. Racist sexist bigoted? Perhaps if ability were a crioteria in Obamas hiring practices we wouldn’t have so many inept government employees creating such problems as Susan Rice.

    The obama administration and the people that surrounded him are living proof they are socialists 100% and I’m not sure that they are card carrying communists. It is so sad to see people trying to destroy the greatest country in the world and stand there and lie that they new nothing. What a bunch of brain dead elitists. Obama and his sidekicks where the closest to nazi Germany than any other administration.

    Once again we see another example of the abuse of power by the Obama administration. The Obama administration tried to undermine the Constitution and trample on our Constitutional rights at every turn .

    It appears the whole rotten Obama administration operated more as a third world dictatorship than a democracy. Part of draining any swamp is to expose the sludge that needs to be removed. Fortunately the Democrats and their accomplices in the media are helping bring the corruption of the Obama administration to light.

      Absolutely abuse. Against WE THE PEOPLE

  • Lorraine E says:

    Asking susan rice for “unmasking” anything or anybody is a joke! She will just LIE like her boss always did.
    It is incredibly stupid to ask her for any information because there is no truth in her. Do not forget that she reported that a You Tube about about mohammed was responsible for the murder of four Americans in Benghazi!
