With the facts surfacing that Obama National Security Adviser Susan Rice was the one who requested the unmasking of Americans caught-up in incidental intelligence gathering, the avenue is clear that a full-blown criminal investigation into the Obama Administration's political activity is warranted.
Susan Rice has gone on record saying no information gathered on the Trump team in said incidental information gathering was used for political purposes. But we already know Susan Rice is a political operative who has a very big problem with telling the truth, even when she knows the truth full well.
Please recall that this habitual liar was the Obama Administration mouthpiece who trotted out the false narrative that the 2012 assassinations in Benghazi were the result of a little watched and crudely made YouTube video. She made the claim repeatedly and purposely, even though she know full-well that the story was a lie. Rather than a politician or a diplomat, Rice is a skilled liar; a willing deceiver.
So, no, no I do not accept Rice's plea that no information was used for political purposes. Add to her honesty issues the fact that Barack Obama himself had an eight-year problem with the truth, and that Hillary Clinton has had a problem with the truth since she exited the womb - and don't get me started on John Podesta - and all the common sense signs point to a political operation against the Trump campaign that makes Watergate look like a Boy Scout outing.
It is time to re-establish that we have a one-tiered justice system in the United States, not a two-tiered system. The criminals of the Obama Era must now be held to account. That will be one of the litmus tests for the Trump Administration's credibility, the others being the repeal (not replacement) of Obamacare, tax reform, the seating of constitutionalists on the SCOTUS, and regulatory reform.
