    Here, from a different news source, is the story that management here is trying to bury.


    Susan Rice Ordered Spy Agencies To Produce ‘Detailed Spreadsheets’ Involving Trump

    Former President Barack Obama’s national security adviser Susan Rice ordered U.S. spy agencies to produce “detailed spreadsheets” of legal phone calls involving Donald Trump and his aides when he was running for president, according to former U.S. Attorney Joseph diGenova.

    “What was produced by the intelligence community at the request of Ms. Rice were detailed spreadsheets of intercepted phone calls with unmasked Trump associates in perfectly legal conversations with individuals,” diGenova told The Daily Caller News Foundation Investigative Group Monday.

    “The overheard conversations involved no illegal activity by anybody of the Trump associates, or anyone they were speaking with,” diGenova said. “In short, the only apparent illegal activity was the unmasking of the people in the calls.”

    Plooje saidCNN Tonight's Don Lemon went so far as to announce he would ignore the news at all costs.


    I try not to watch CNN much anymore because it's honestly painful to watch. They have gotten so bad, so utterly biased, so consumed with "All Things Russia" that they've become unwatchable. I noticed in last week's cable shows ratings that CNN came in at #12. This is no surprise. Jeff Zucker is truly ruining CNN with their anti-Trump obsession.

    Question posed to Eli Lake on Fox News: What would be the obvious need to unmask?
    Part of his answer : There is, of course, an ongoing FBI counterintelligence probe on Russia and Trump, and that would be a fine reason to do it.

    CNN's Donna Brazile leaking questions to Hillary Clinton before the CNN debate was the last straw for me.

    Not surprised they're circling the wagons to bury Democrat crimes.

    Several CNN higher ups have personal vendettas against Trump. They look very foolish when they twist and beat to death issues that have no evidence are are just innuendo.

    "The totally phony Susan Rice story, explained
    The former national security advisor’s surveillance activity is neither illegal or unethical.


    Conservatives are seizing on a report that former national security advisor Susan Rice requested the identity of anonymous people named in intelligence reports, claiming that it provides evidence for President Trump’s false claim that Trump Tower was wiretapped.

    Bloomberg’s Eli Lake reported Monday that Rice requested the “unmasking” of third parties whose information is collected during targeted surveillance of other individuals. Conservative media jumped on the claim and reported that it corroborates Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA), chairman of the House Intelligence Committee’s allegation that information about Trump’s transition team had been “incidentally collected” during U.S. government surveillance of foreign officials.

    But the reports, which originated from the far-right, fringe corners of the internet, do not reveal any illegal activity or violation of privacy laws. They also provide no support for President Trump’s still entirely-unsubstantiated claim that the Obama administration’s surveillance targeted Trump officials.
    Funneled from the far right

    Susan Rice’s involvement in the unmasking was first reported by far-right extremist Mike Cernovich, who published a story on Medium Sunday alleging that the mainstream media has been attempting to cover up the revelation.

    “This reporter has been informed that Maggie Haberman has had this story about Susan Rice for at least 48 hours, and has chosen to sit on it in an effort to protect the reputation of former President Barack Obama,” Cernovich wrote.

    Cernovich, a white nationalist, misogynist, and a key figure in the Pizzagate controversy, has been called the “meme mastermind of the alt-right.”

    Less than 24 hours later, Bloomberg’s Eli Lake picked up the same reports on Rice’s activity, citing “U.S. officials familiar with the matter.”

    Unlike Cernovich, Lake noted that Rice’s unmasking “does not vindicate Trump’s own tweets from March 4 in which he accused Obama of illegally tapping Trump Tower.” Lake did not allege that Rice’s activity is unlawful, but he did write that her actions “highlight a longstanding concern” about surveillance programs.

    “[Rice’s] role in requesting the identities of Trump transition officials adds an important element to the dueling investigations surrounding the Trump White House since the president’s inauguration,” Lake wrote.

    Within hours, headlines highlighting Rice’s involvement appeared across the conservative internet on sites including Breitbart News, the Daily Caller, the Washington Times, the Washington Examiner, the New York Post, and Gateway Pundit.

    In the Washington Examiner, David Fredosso wrote that “Eli Lake has the story that everybody should be talking about today.”

    On Fox News, reporter Adam Housley called the unmasking “unprecedented” and stoked anger by claiming that the “names of Americans who had done nothing wrong was disseminated to all of the NSC, some at DOD, Clapper, Brennan, basically the people at the top.” Shortly after, Trump tweeted about the segment."
