Most of the stories I’m seeing about the revelations that Susan Rice unmasked the names of Trump Team members in classified documents omit the name Hillary Clinton.
The developing story that points the finger at Rice has broken out big today as Mike Cernovich’s scoop finally drew MSM attention, but few want to speculate if the trail will lead to Obama and/or Hillary.
Mrs. Clinton is the person who would have benefited the most from the surveillance of Trump and his team. The press doesn’t seem to want us to think about that.
Smart reporters are probably trying to figure out how to steer the narrative back to the “Trump is a Russian agent” narrative. Rolling Stone’s Matt Taibbi has called the obsession with Russia “Putin Derangement Syndrome” in his article published today and featured on the Drudge Report. Taibbi has observed that if you’re not on board with the obsession, then you too are a Russian shill.
OK, just call me Boris.
Earlier this morning we noted that it was looking increasingly likely that Obama’s National Security Advisor, Susan Rice, was behind the unmasking of the identity of various members Trump’s team who were ‘incidentally’ surveilled during the 2016 campaign (see “Confirmed: Susan Rice “Unmasked” Trump Team”). If true, of course, this raises a number of questions about the Obama administration’s motives and whether various members of his team may have broken laws.
And while Spicer was somewhat non-committal on the issue at his daily press briefing earlier, pending the results of an ongoing investigation, he did say that new revelations were heading in a “troubling direction.”
Reporter: “Senator Rand Paul has called the reports that Susan Rice ordered the unmasking of Trump’s associates a “smoking gun”, does the President agree with that characterization and what does he think of these reports?”
Spicer: “There is an ongoing investigation, that we have supported, looking into this matter. I will say there is a troubling direction that some of this is going in. But we’re going to let this review go on before we jump to [conclusions].”
“But I think that it is interesting, the lack of interest that I’ve seen from the press corps in one set of developments versus another set of developments.”
Meanwhile, as Trump has pointed out many times, Spicer went on to tell Fox News that the most troubling part of the whole situation was the media’s apparent ‘lack of interest’ in the potentially illegal actions of Susan Rice versus their complete fascination with Trump’s alleged ties to Vladimir Putin for which no one has offered a single shred of evidence…
Watch the video on youtube if you prefer:
Heavy is on the story with a “5 Fast Facts” about Susan Rice. In the video above, she seems to be lying. She’s lied before. Specifically, she lied about the deaths of American officials at Benghazi.
The most significant fact about Susan Rice may be that she’s married to a white male ABC News executive, Ian Cameron.
Rice married Canadian-born ABC News producer Ian Officer Cameron on September 12, 1992, at the St. Albans School chapel. They met as students at Stanford. They have two children, Jake and Maris.
The mainstream media is biased against Trump already. Imagine how much they want to protect Susan Rice, given that they all know her on a personal level through her husband.
