Obama’s national security adviser Susan Rice asked for Trump’s associates’ names to be ‘UNMASKED’ from intelligence reports dozens of times

Former national security advisor Susan Rice asked dozens of times for the names of Donald Trump associates to be ‘unmasked’ in foreign surveillance reports.

Rice is the Obama administration official whose name became a punchline after her repeated false claims that the 2012 Benghazi terror attacks were caused by a crude Internet video.

From her position as chief of the National Security Council, according to a Bloomberg columnist, Rice asked government agencies to identify names that had been withheld from raw intelligence reports linked with Trump campaign and transition figures.

There is not necessarily anything illegal or unusual about a national security adviser seeking to unmask names in raw reports, in order to fully understand the meaning of intercepted conversations.
