Fox News: Susan Rice Responsible for Unmasking of Names of Trump Officials

‘Multiple sources tell Fox News ... Susan Rice requested to unmask the names of Trump transition officials’


HOUSLEY: "The stories that are coming out, we broke this on Friday. We’re getting much more details now. In fact, multiple sources tell Fox News that former national security adviser under President Obama, Susan Rice requested to unmask the names of Trump transition officials. The unmasked names, people associated with Donald Trump, were then sent to the NSC, some at DOD, James Clapper, John Brennan, basically the people at the top, including former deputy national security adviser Ben Rhodes. These names were part of incidental electronic surveillance of candidate and President-elect Donald Trump and people close to him, including family members, for up to a year before he took office. The names of Americans incidentally collected, they are supposed to be masked meaning the name or names are redacted from reports, whether it's international or domestic collection, unless it’s an issue of national security, crime or if their security is threatened in any way."
