Susan Rice Ordered "Detailed Spreadsheets Of Intercepted Phone Calls" With Trump Team

Tyler Durden's picture

After it was revealed over the weekend by Mike Cernovich that Susan Rice was the mysterious Obama official behind the "unmasking" of Trump associates, the details behind the extreme measures taken by the Obama administration, including what seems to be personal legal liability for Susan Rice and potentially others, continue to grow more and more disturbing. 

This morning, the Daily Caller has provided new details, courtesy of former U.S. Attorney Joseph diGenova, suggesting that Rice specifically requested that the NSA provide her with "detailed spreadsheets of intercepted phone calls with unmasked Trump associates."

“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.”

Meanwhile, Retired Colonel James Waurishuk, an NSC veteran and former deputy director for intelligence at the U.S. Central Command, said that the level of coordination required to pull off such a massive spying operation is staggering and would have required numerous personnel from the White House, NSA, CIA, National Security Council, etc.    

“The surveillance initially is the responsibility of the National Security Agency,” Waurishuk said. “They have to abide by this guidance when one of the other agencies says, ‘we’re looking at this particular person which we would like to unmask.’”

 

“The lawyers and counsel at the NSA surely would be talking to the lawyers and members of counsel at CIA, or at the National Security Council or at the Director of National Intelligence or at the FBI,” he said. “It’s unbelievable of the level and degree of the administration to look for information on Donald Trump and his associates, his campaign team and his transition team.  This is really, really serious stuff.”

In other words, it's growing increasingly unlikely that this operation was anything but a direct, targeted attempt of the Obama administration to utilize the full force of the U.S. intelligence apparatus to take down a political adversary.

Susan Rice

 

As Michael Doran points out, if these alleged actions are proven to be accurate then several people within the Obama administration likely committed felonies.

Michael Doran, former NSC senior director, told TheDCNF Monday that “somebody blew a hole in the wall between national security secrets and partisan politics.” This “was a stream of information that was supposed to be hermetically sealed from politics and the Obama administration found a way to blow a hole in that wall.”

 

Doran charged that potential serious crimes were undertaken because “this is a leaking of signal intelligence.”

 

“That’s a felony,” he told TheDCNF. “And you can get 10 years for that. It is a tremendous abuse of the system. We’re not supposed to be monitoring American citizens. Bigger than the crime, is the breach of public trust.”

 

Waurishuk said he was most dismayed that “this is now using national intelligence assets and capabilities to spy on the elected, yet-to-be-seated president.”

 

“We’re looking at a potential constitutional crisis from the standpoint that we used an extremely strong capability that’s supposed to be used to safeguard and protect the country,” he said. “And we used it for political purposes by a sitting President. That takes on a new precedent.”

Of course, just because Obama used the NSA to try and take down Trump doesn't mean that those allegations that he used the IRS to take out Romney supporters in 2012 were true....Scandal-free administration...

"When will she be in custody?"

"Oh, well, we need to convene a Grand Jury which will take some time affording her the ability to flee (to where Obama is?) to a non-extraditable "nation""

Just remember people. Rice is the designated patsy. Those responsible for this will never see a court room, let alone a jail.

I am with Trump as well. As usual we have The Dems accusing other of doing what they are doing themselves, treasonous activities with the Russians. Podesta stocks in a State owned Russian Company, Clinton Uranium / illegal Server, Obama spying.

Notice how the whole Trump is a Russian agent meme is dying and the MSM is losing more and more credibility by continuing to change the story and Zero reporting by them on the Susan Rice spying and committing slumberous felonies.

... the part-Kenyan ordered the part-Jamaican to spy on POTUS ... that's a given and absolutely no doubt ...

... I could imagine the part-kenyan's humongous ears burning in tahiti all day and night ... on the phone with the part-jamaican with some 'cRat advisers planning damage-control  ...

... I often wonder if any of these treasonous criminal politicians would (ever) go to jail ... oh well, the Panama-Canal-born Hanoi songbird is STILL employed as a US senator ... and the Klinton Krime Kartel is still coming out of the woods making noises  ...  fuck that thought ... ;)

Where was Comey in all this?

1) he was in the thick of it

2) it went on behind his back

In either case he is at fault.

Their little MSM games are juvenile at best. It's pathetic. All of these traitors need to removed from American society either by putting them in prison or by execution. If neither of these things start happening soon, the patriotic citizenry will handle them.

If you think this is going to result in a Nixon-esque series of Obama subordinates being thrown overboard by Obama in order to protect himself, you need to curb your enthusiasm.  The BEST you can hope for out of this is that Rice gets called in front of a Congressional committee hearing and she pleads the 5th over and over and over again.

More likely is that she'll just tell Congress to fuck off and ignore the subpoena to show up and testify at the hearing.

There will be NOBODY doing any jail time over this.  And certainly not Obama.  So please, set your expectations accordingly.

Yep, unfortunately you are probably right. Pretty sorry. I don't know what you call this place anymore. In an actual banana republic, heads would roll, literally. But, in a constitutional republic with rule of law, this shit would never have been able to happen at all. So I guess we are somewhere in between.

There is lots of corruption and much of it is based on simple survival. Radicalization of the left is epic and Republicans know that to imprison even Rice would initiate blood in the streets. They? will complain loudly in hopes of political gains but take it no further.....For the good of the nation.....

Snípéir_Ag_Obair's picture

You may be right.

But I think we are just looking at the tip of an iceberg in terms of how the Dems (can I remind ZH that 1 term senator Obama is a puppet, and a creature groomed by a Chicago Zionist network? FFS he nominated and appointed a *wildly* disproportionate number of Jews - not Muslims) used and abused multiple intel agencies for political reasons.

That Rice lied about it (as she did Benghazi) suggests there were more crimes here than just the leaking (technically the 'unmasking' to her was likely legal - but should not be) just as Benghazi was really about an assault on a CIA annex storing and shipping weapons and explosives to Al Nusra and ISIS via a Turkish rat line.

Still no evidence that Russia 'hacked' the DNC. NSA reported only 'moderate confidence' while other agencies reported 'high'.

Thats important.

And still zero evidence of 'collusion' with the unproven hacking.

ZERO. And gentlemen- this is t going through boxes of paperwork.

If it existed, they would have had it months back.

The judeocorporate media frenzy is based on nothing.

Trump should absolutely ask for **NSA** to provide a onplete summary of all evidence of alleged Russian 'hacking' and no, faggot trolls, articles on RT which very often could afford to deal in fact dont ount.

Lastly, I think ZH should consider addressing NYTimes' coverage

https://mobile.nytimes.com/2017/04/03/us/politics/twitter-trump-clinton-...

^ they are not merely biased. ZH is biased. I am 'biased' - no, they are absolutely, positively I promise you being directed by former or rogue intelligence operators to produce disinfo.

You want to find the source of leaks, NSA merely needs to look hard at the NYT e board, publisher and front line reporters.

And I think Sessions can rightly open an investigation into Obama and his use of intelligence agencies.

And work with DIA to do so.

Oh, and stop sending Rangers and others into NE Syria to help Israel's Oded Yinon plan, Donald.

You dont want to piss off the military, and Netanyahu is not your friend, and neither is Sayan Kushner.

They are only loyal to their cherished myth of Ersatz Israel.

DIA should also work with NSA to examine CIA and State Dept ties to Israel, and Likud and Shas in particular.

Because traitors of all stripes need to be flushed out.

But..But..But that would be rayciss!

Trump gave his word that there would be a return to law and order. Give it time. These sorts of investigations are best allowed to mature at a certain pace. We don't want the frog to jump out of the pot now do we?

The people can demand justice!

Besides, Olbombya always was just an expendable stooge for the deep state anyway.

crossroaddemon's picture

I still don't understand how anybody can seriously believe that anyone significant is going down over this.

francis_the_wonder_hamster's picture

Well if we don't believe that justice will eventually win out, then the system has, indeed, completely failed, and has thus outlived its usefullness.

NEXT.

Personally, I'm still holding out hope (but am fully "prepared" to be disappointed).

"If you think this is going to result in a Nixon-esque series of Obama subordinates being thrown overboard by Obama in order to protect himself, you need to curb your enthusiasm."

You're correct. When a dying empire is ruled by corruption in every powerful public and private institution, "justice" will only be meted out to the common person. 

But there will come a day when one or more of those institutions (financial/federal) will seek even greater power causing an immense implosion and the empire will fall; slowly, or immediate.

The written law does not apply inside the Beltway. Government agencies are to be used for political purposes and we get to pay for it.

If Trump does not begin firing all of the Dem appointees we are just going to sit through 4 years of more of this crap.

This is magnitudes bigger than Watergate, but just like the horror stories contained in the Pedosta leaks, the Obumfuck-enabling MSM aren't touching it with a barge pole. Maybe when this bitch pleads de fiff and goes down for 10 years it may make the bottom of page 29.

She has committed felonies even a fuckwit like Keystone cop Comey could close the case on.

eclectic syncretist's picture

Olbombya's crew is apparently stupid enough that given a little time they'll probably incriminate themselves even further by continuing to try and implement a massive cover-up. It's best that the most damning evidence against them be kept from them for now.
