The unmasking scandal of Barack Obama’s presidency has finally come back to haunt him.
President Trump, from the very beginning of his presidency, has accused former President Obama of spying not only on himself, but on his staff members and close acquaintances.
Now, it looks like the truth may finally come out, in the confines of a House Intelligence Committee meeting. Obama’s crony and former National Security Adviser Susan Rice has finally agreed to meet with Congress.
However, her stipulations are that the hearing be private. Doesn’t that look a bit shady? What is she trying to hide? Is this a protection of her former boss, Barack Obama? And how soon will he be called to have the same conversation?
From The Daily Caller:
Susan Rice has reportedly agreed to testify before the House Intelligence Committee, albeit in private, as part of the panel’s investigation into Russian meddling in the election.
According to CNN, Rice will attend the closed session sometime before Congress’ August recess.
Rice is of interest to Republicans on the committee because of her alleged role in unmasking the identities of Trump transition officials picked up in surveillance conducted by U.S. intelligence agencies.
In April, Bloomberg’s Eli Lake reported that White House lawyers had discovered that Rice made dozens of requests for the names of Trump transition and campaign figures that were redacted in raw intelligence reports.
Rice’s alleged involvement in “unmasking” the names of Trump officials fueled theories that the Obama administration spied on the Republican.
In raw intelligence reports, the names of U.S. citizens picked up during routine surveillance of foreign targets are redacted. But U.S. officials at the highest levels of the government have the authority to “unmask,” or reveal, the names of those U.S. citizens.
It is unclear whose names Rice may have unmasked, but she has denied any wrongdoing. The core issue, she has claimed, is whether the names were unmasked for political reasons and whether they were leaked to the press. She has denied doing either.
Of course she has denied doing anything wrong. That is what the Obama Administration was all about: breaking every rule of law and regulation available, saying that it doesn’t apply to them, and freeing themselves of any punishment.
Thanks to a new administration under President Trump, we are sure to get to the bottom of this spying issue, and the truth will finally come out, whether behind closed doors or in public.
Once the truth is finally found, we hope that those who have broken the law will be punished to the full extent of the law, regardless if the person who broke the law is a top Democrat like Susan Rice or Barack Obama!
