Susan Rice finally comes clean about why she unmasked those Trump transition officials

After month’s of dodging, former National Security Adviser Susan Rice has finally come clean about why she ordered the unmasking of certain Trump transition team members.

The parody Sean Spicer sums it up like this: “Susan Rice carries an EpiPen around in case she ever accidentally tells the truth.”

According to reports, Rice told the House Intelligence Committee in a closed-door interview last week that the Obama Administration wanted to know why the crown prince of the United Arab Emirates, Sheikh Mohammad bin Zayed al-Nahyan, decided to visit New York and meet with then-Trump officials Michael Flynn, Jared Kushner, and Steve Bannon on December 15 without telling U.S. officials.

Allegations have swirled since early this year that Rice improperly unmasked the Trump transition team members, but now even Rep. Trey Gowdy has told The Daily Caller that none of the unmaskings were improper and Rice never leaked classified information to the media.

Florida GOP Rep. Tom Rooney echoed that sentiment to CNN, saying, “I didn’t hear anything to believe that she did anything illegal.”

CNN sources confirmed that, since the UAE failed to inform the government that Zayed would be coming, as was standard procedure when dignitaries visit, the Obama Administration felt misled.

Therefore, any Americans identified in intelligence reports about the meeting were unmasked.

From The Daily Caller:

The meeting with Zayed was of particular interest to U.S. officials because it came just before the UAE helped set up a line of communications between the U.S. and Russian governments.

Erik Prince, a Trump ally and the founder of the defense contractor Blackwater, met with an unidentified associate of Vladimir Putin’s in January in the Seychelles Islands.

The meeting was part of a sprawling federal investigation into Russian meddling in the presidential campaign, though Prince has denied that the meeting was improper.

The Washington Post reported in April that the Prince meeting was part of an effort to convince Russia to alter its relationship with Iran.

As far as whether or not Rice is off the hook, Roger Stone vehemently disagrees.
