A bombshell report revealed that Obama’s former national security advisor Susan Rice was the one who requested that the NSA unmask the names of Trump and his officials during the election. While this is startling, new information is being revealed that that could send Susan Rice to prison.
Right now, the biggest defense for the left is that Trump being spied on was “incidental” ad that he along with his officials and family were swept up during the request. White House logs left behind by the Obama administration reveal though that spying on Trump was not “incidental,” but that Rice’s interest on gathering NSA documents on Trump increased after Trump won the election, with spying going on into January.
Just two weeks ago Rep. Devin Nunes said the Obama officials who released General Flynn transcript face up to five years in prison. But spying on the president of the United States could have an even bigger penalty.

Computer logs that former President Obama’s team left behind in the White House indicate his national security adviser Susan Rice accessed numerous intelligence reports during Obama’s last seven months in office that contained National Security Agency intercepts involving Donald Trump and his associates, Circa has learned.
Intelligence sources said the logs discovered by National Security Council staff suggested Rice’s interest in the NSA materials, some of which included unmasked Americans’ identities, appeared to begin last July around the time Trump secured the GOP nomination and accelerated after Trump’s election in November launched a transition that continued through January.
The intelligence reports included some intercepts of Americans talking to foreigners and many more involving foreign leaders talking about the future president, his campaign associates or his transition, the sources said. Most if not all had nothing to do with the Russian election interference scandal, the sources said, speaking only on condition of anonymity given the sensitive nature of the materials.
What makes matters worse is that they didn’t find anything negative to pin on Donald Trump.
“What was produced by the intelligence community at the request of Ms. Rice were detailed spreadsheets of intercepted phone calls with unmasked Trump associates in perfectly legal conversations with individuals,” diGenova told The Daily Caller News Foundation Investigative Group Monday.
“The overheard conversations involved no illegal activity by anybody of the Trump associates, or anyone they were speaking with,” diGenova said. “In short, the only apparent illegal activity was the unmasking of the people in the calls.”
