Matthew Vadum at Front Page Magazine provides us with some useful background on former national security advisor Susan Rice, who apparently has a tenuous connection to facts and reality. Rice is now at the center of the Obama domestic spying scandal in which government agencies were used to advance the Obama administration’s political goals while breaking federal privacy laws. Using domestic intelligence agencies in this manner is a very serious crime if you get caught. Felonies abound.
We still don’t know who asked then-National Security Advisor Susan Rice to unmask those names – or if she acted on her own initiative. But the most likely culprit has to be President Obama himself, along with those in his inner circle such as his Islamist CIA director John Brennan and his slimy national security aide Ben Rhodes.
But whoever did the deed, it appears someone used America’s taxpayer-funded national security apparatus to engage in likely unlawful espionage against an opposition presidential campaign, an incoming administration, and that administration’s transition team. It’s the stuff of banana republics, which makes sense because Obama spent eight long, lawless years trying to turn the United States into precisely that.
Those persons may have participated in a virtual fishing expedition to dig up dirt on Team Trump and cripple his administration with scandals like the still-unproven collusion between Trump’s people and Russia and the seemingly wild claim that Russia somehow “hacked” the November election.
Susan Rice has no shortage of chutzpah.
