Two bombshells in one, but only one is receiving attention and only because of the efforts and publishing of damning information by Independent Media writer Mike Cernovich, about who in the Obama administration was behind the “unmasking” of names of American citizens, incidentally collected by intelligence agencies, then disseminating it to the media, which according Rep. Trey Gowdy, who sits on the House Intelligence Committee, is a felony offense.
Cernovich revealed that the name of the high level Obama administration official that ordered the “unmasking” of names of members of the Trump campaign, even before the presidential election, was Obama’s national security adviser Susan Rice. That information was then widely disseminated throughout the intelligence community after Obama issued an order making it easier for intelligence agencies to share “unfiltered information” about innocent people.
The House Intelligence Committee has been investigating who “unmasked” those names, which then was disseminated widely, resulting in a number of illegal leaks to the press, with Rice’s name being mentioned as one of those with the ability to request the unmasking, and Gowdy has maintained throughout that there is always a paper trail, therefore the originating source would be revealed during the investigation.
Which is exactly what happened.
The bigger bombshell, for those of us that have been watching the MSM’s attempts to downplay the illegal actions taken on the part of Obama admin officials, is that at least two mainstream media sources were aware of this information, for at least a couple of days, and sat on the information in an attempt to protect the Obama administration.
