News making the rounds has it that former national security adviser under the Obama-led administration; Susan Elizabeth Rice made a request to reveal the names of President Donald J. Trump’s officials caught up in surveillance.

The names of people associated with the current U.S. President – essentially top officials, were forwarded to those at the National Security Council, some at the defense department, former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper and Former Director of CIA John Brennan.

 Rice, a former United Nations Ambassador is no stranger to controversy as it can be recalled that she was at the heart of the uproar over the Sept. 11, 2012 terror attack in Benghazi, the second most populous city in Libya. The former Obama administration official had previously denied having any knowledge of the claims that President Trump’s transition officials may have been involved in a surveillance of foreign targets at the end of President Barack Obama’s term.   It seems that Rice has a history of putting political matters above issues of national security

The federal Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act of 1978, a law which prescribes procedures for the physical and electronic surveillance and collection of foreign intelligence information between foreign powers and agents of foreign powers stipulates that, any American who turns up on surveillance of targeted foreigners must have their identities covered. However, it is also believed that House Intelligence Committee Chairman David Nunes knew about unmasking in January even before President Trump’s wiretapping allegations.

The stinging revelations about Rice’s request for unmasking raises doubt over the Obama administration and its use of surveillance for political ends. Susan Rice was the 24th United States National Security Advisor from 2013 to 2017. She has also served as a U.S. diplomat.



Diamond and Silk Opinion

Well, Well, Well…..Y’all know Rice has already been the center of controversy.  Remember when she lied about the Benghazi situation.  As far as we’re concerned Susan Rice is a Pathological liar.  We are thinking back to when she went on TV saying that the United States are doing everything to protect our people and Facilities abroad when in reality an ambassador was being killed and others were attacked in Benghazi.   We feel what Rice did was illegal; though she may have had the authority to unmask she didn’t have a reason for doing it.  From what we heard National Security advisors do not conduct investigations, now you do the math…..Guilty As Hell
