Former National Security Adviser Susan Rice just got even more bad news on top of that received lately, as the House and Senate Intelligence Committee just made a huge announcement.The probe launched into Rice’s actions has now been expanded into a “full-blown investigation.”
The Washington Free Beacon is reporting:The House and Senate Intelligence Committees are expanding their investigations into former National Security Adviser Susan Rice’s alleged “unmasking” of U.S. persons who were incidentally collected in surveillance of foreign officials.
An unnamed member of the House Intelligence Committee confirmed that Rice is now under “a full-blown investigation,” Fox News reported on Wednesday.
“We will be performing an accounting of all unmasking for political purposes focused on the previous White House administration. This is now a full-blown investigation,” the committee member said.While she was national security advisor, Rice reportedly requested the names of US persons associated with the Trump campaign who were incidentally collected while monitoring foreign officials, according to Bloomberg‘s Eli Lake. Critics concerned about Rice’s behavior are focused on whether she attempted to unmask Trump campaign officials for political purposes.
It is likely that President Donald Trump and members of his family were subjects of incidental surveillance, according to Fox, and House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes (R., Calif.) reportedly intends to review National Security Agency and White House files to establish if information about presidential candidates or members of Congress were incidentally collected for political purposes.
Senate Intelligence Committee staffers also said they were investigating whether or not presidential candidates were unmasked, along with the roles of those potentially involved with the unmasking, including Rice.A full investigation into unmasking could leave Rice facing charges of criminal behavior, thus further blighting the Obama administration. As if they needed any more of those, right?
This is a prime example of the left’s willingness to do whatever it takes — including breaking the law — to destroy the opposition and ensure their agenda gets implemented.
What the left doesn’t seem to understand is that when their schemes are uncovered it ruins their already stained credibility and costs them the “moral high ground” they think they possess.Let’s hope Rice’s activities are fully “unmasked” and she’s held accountable for her actions.
