Ex-Obama adviser: Trump's attack on Rice 'authoritarianism'
Unmasking is the word of the week inside Washington, D.C. "I think every American should know whether or not the national security adviser to President Obama was involved in unmasking Trump transition figures for political purposes".
"Yes, in general, and any other national security adviser would, I think, as a matter of their ordinary course of business", Comey said.
"I think it's going to be the biggest story", Trump said in an Oval Office interview published under the bylines of Times reporters Maggie Haberman and Glenn Thrush. For now, we know that the most important aspect of the Russia-hacking-wire-tapping-spying-Susan-Rice story is that Trump's transition team was in contact with Russian operatives and others - and it would be nice to know that they were only exploring critical questions related to cabbage. There is no evidence that backs up the president's original claim ...
Rice denied that allegation. The Times said Trump declined "repeated requests for evidence of his allegations or the names of other Obama administration officials".
"I always assume that it is incompetence and not conspiracy", he said.
Erin Pelton, a spokeswoman for Rice, said, "I'm not going to dignify the president's ludicrous charge with a comment".
The White House and Trump later said that the wiretapping allegations referred to broader surveillance by the Obama administration.
She added that she never made public the identities of any associates of Trump mentioned in intelligence surveillance. She had the names sent around to certain Defense Department personnel, to James Clapper then-Director of National Intelligence, and to John Brennan, then-CIA Director, along with Ben Rhodes, then Rice's deputy. As the national security adviser, Rice would have been authorized to seek identities of people whose names were redacted from intelligence reports.

Anti-allergy medicine EpiPen recall expands to US
The company said there have been two global cases reported where a defective part prevented the Auto-Injector from activating. Mylan was called out in August 2016 for raising the price of the EpiPen to $608.61 from $93.88 over the past decade.
When a name is unmasked it is only provided to the official who requested it, and therefore unmasking is not equivalent to leaking the name.
While the intelligence agencies get to the bottom of these allegations, many urge them to not ease up on the investigation into Trump and any collusion with Russian Federation.
Actually, there are several Pulitzers awarded each year, but Mike Cernovich, who has said he became an Alt-Righter when he realized that diversity really meant "white genocide", isn't likely to receive one for pointing out that Rice was doing her job.
According to NBC News, Rice denied reports that she allegedly had a "spreadsheet" detailing phone calls made by Trump campaign officials. The goal of that meeting, according to U.S., European and Arab officials, was to establish a back-channel line of communication between Moscow and then-President elect-Trump.
Rice alluded to that Russian Federation probe in her interview, saying it was of "grave concern". Yet since he first heard about the apparently illegal surveillance of team Trump, Nunes has been asking the intelligence community to hand over the evidence that he as Chairman of the Intelligence Committee has a right to see. People in the Obama White House were freaked out that Donald Trump had won.
He said the information came from documents obtained from a source he would not identify.
In January, the Justice Department and intelligence officials agreed on new rules giving more USA agencies access to raw information picked up overseas by the National Security Agency.
