Obama aide denies using intel to spy on Trump advisers

Have you been keeping up with the news from Washington?

In this entire Russia situation, the Trump campaign and now the White House has made its job much tougher by saying things that are later contradicted, most notably about its contacts with the Russian ambassador to the United States.

"They were going to use the intelligence apparatus to attack Trump and I think they did", Sen.

According to a US official, President Donald Trump's national security aides discovered after the inauguration that Rice had asked for the identities of Trump associates who were referenced in intelligence reports.

Is it a real story, or is it fake news?

"We will not insult your intelligence by pretending otherwise, nor will we aid and abet the people who are trying to misinform you, the American people, by creating a diversion". But sometimes, the names of innocent Americans are incidentally collected in the course of investigations.

To protect national security, Ms. Rice said, her job often required her to learn the identity of masked US officials.

"I think it's an affront to humanity", he said, adding it was "inconceivable that somebody could do that, those kids were so lovely, to look at those, the scenes of those attractive children being carried out". Ms. Rice is a favorite scapegoat of Republicans and because, well, it's a good way to change the topic from what has been an embarrassing episode for the administration. Schiff now has seen the same intelligence information as his Republican counterpart and has said nothing in it "justifies such duplicitous conduct" on the White House's behalf.

I feel like surrogacy is really the only other option for me, ' she said . "Whatever is meant to be will be". We heard last week that she was planning to have surgery as a last-ditch effort to get pregnant.

"Allright, President Trump, right-wing media types", he opened, "peddling a fake scandal". After all, that is a pretty old-fashioned surveillance technique and the term "tapping" is a bit antiquated.

I'd suggest the situation is complicated. "I was surprised to see reports from Chairman Nunes on that count today".

She's under fire for "unmasking" of Trumpworld names on raw intelligence reports. Nunes also has the serial numbers of damaging documents that chronicled the reports of this nefarious operation.

Cohen-Watnick raised his findings about Rice with the White House counsel's office, according to the official.

The CNN anchor said there was "no evidence whatsoever that the Trump team (were) surveilled or spied on illegally" and that he did not plan to insult his viewers "intelligence by pretending otherwise". He was stonewalled. Thus when he heard of the material in the White House he knew where to go.

Rep. Adam Schiff, the top Democrat on the House intelligence committee, has called on Nunes to recuse himself from the panel's Russian Federation investigation.

Since Monday, when Eli Lake broke the story at Bloomberg News, the nation has been riveted by the report that Rice asked that the identities of various USA citizens, "incidentally" swept up by one or more of America's alphabet soup of intelligence services, be "unmasked". Despite the grave warning, Trump didn't oust Flynn until weeks later, only when the story was reported in the press.

Former Obama national security adviser Susan Rice said Tuesday that she "absolutely" never sought to uncover "for political purposes" the names of Trump campaign or transition officials concealed in intelligence intercepts, and she called suggestions that she leaked those identities "completely false".
