In a bombshell report, Mike Cernovich, publishing on Medium, has revealed that Susan Rice, former Obama administration National Security Advisor, was the person who requested the “unmasking” of individuals who were going to be in the Trump administration.
“Unmasking” is what happened to Michael Flynn, and it was a large part of the conversation during the rare open hearing that was held by the House Intelligence Committee.
As Cernovich puts it:
“Unmasking” is the process of identifying individuals whose communications were caught in the dragnet of intelligence gathering. While conducting investigations into terrorism and other related crimes, intelligence analysts incidentally capture conversations about parties not subject to the search warrant. The identities of individuals who are not under investigation are kept confidential, for legal and moral reasons.
Cernovich notes that under the rules that had changed about “unmasking” during the Obama administration, Susan Rice had the authorization to request the identification of individuals.
The White House Counsel’s office identified Rice as the person responsible for the unmasking after examining Rice’s document log requests. The reports Rice requested to see are kept under tightly-controlled conditions. Each person must log her name before being granted access to them.
Upon learning of Rice’s actions, H. R. McMaster dispatched his close aide Derek Harvey to Capitol Hill to brief Chairman Nunes.
H. R. McMaster is now the current National Security Advisor, so he would have access to those logs.
