Susan Rice's Huge Risk For This One Name Is Leading Back To Hillary And Obama

When Susan Rice appeared on PBS for an interview with Judy Woodruff two weeks ago, the former National Security Advisor said she was only just hearing about the allegations that the Obama administration used surveillance on Donald Trump and his associates, and 'unmasked' them. Rice was caught lying by Fox News when Fox News and Bloomberg's Eli Lake reported that it was Rice herself who did the unmasking. Rice is changing her story, but the mainstream media are still not reporting the news.

According to Rice, who glosses over accusations that she lied on PBS, it was 'not uncommon' to request names of Americans picked up on intercepted intelligence. She spoke to Andrea Mitchell of MSNBC yesterday and admitted her role in the unmasking, but insists that it was absolutely not done 'for political purposes'.

By unmasking Trump and his team, Rice may or may not have broken the law. If it was exclusively done for security reasons, it's perfectly legal. However, if Rice was at all politically motivated to unmask the GOP players, she'll find herself in murky ethics.

Another important question that has yet to be answered is if Rice had anything to do with the intelligence being leaked? Was she politically motivated to leak it herself in an attempt to damage Mr. Trump or his team? Did she share the information with someone else who leaked it?

Rice denies that she leaked the information. “I leaked nothing to nobody and never have and never would,” she said.

It's hard to accept Rice at her word after she was already caught lying. Rice has a long history of being untruthful to the media; after the Benghazi attacks, it was Rice who took to the media to report it was a spontaneous riot in response to an anti-Muslim video, a claim that turned out to be completely untrue.

Perhaps the mainstream media is failing to report the scandal as it unfolds because there are no clear answers yet. On CNN, host Don Lemon said they won't cover the story of Trump possibly being spied on illegally because they will not 'aid and abet the people who are trying to misinform you, the American people, by creating a diversion'.

The problem with that comment is, the facts to prove it's a 'diversion' aren't available, either. It seems heavily biased reporting is playing a huge role in the news stories that media outlets pick and choose to cover; either way, that means these 'journalists' are aiding and abetting at least one side of the political aisle.
