The mainstream press is freaking out because this story raises questions about the purity of the Obama administration. This story needs to be looked into, not covered up:
Early Monday morning Eli Lake at Bloomberg News broke a major story that alleges Obama’s White House National Security Advisor Susan Rice gave the order to “unmask” members of the Trump campaign team. In other words, the report alleged Rice was the person who gave the order to NSA officials to include the identity of Americans inadvertently swept up in communications intercepts. The normal practice is for the NSA to redact the names of Americans caught up in signals intercepts, but if Lake’s story is correct, it appears Rice asked them to modify the normal protocol.
