Sassy Liberty AMERICA’S FREEDOM FIGHTERS – 

Nearly a month has passed since the bombshell dropped that former National Security Adviser Susan Rice was responsible for unmasking members of President Trump’s transition team, as well as other Americans.  Nearly a month since Rice was quoted as saying, “I leaked nothing to nobody.”

Now here comes the current National Security Adviser for President Trump’s administration, H.R. McMaster, sending an official letter where he gave Susan Rice continuing and unfettered access to classified information.  McMaster also waived Rice’s “need-to-know” requirement on anything she viewed or received during her tenure.

The letter was sent out in April 2017 and was done without President Trump’s approval or even knowledge that such a decision had been made.

The letter states –

“I hereby waive the requirement that you must have a ‘need-to-know’ to access any classified information contained in items you ‘originated, reviewed, signed or received while serving,’ as National Security Adviser.

NSC will continue to work with you to ensure the appropriate security clearance documentation remains on file to allow you access to classified information.”

During the Obama regime’s reign in Washington, top aides like Rice along with former CIA Director John Brennan and former Attorney General Loretta Lynch routinely and regularly reviewed intelligence reports received from the National Security Agency’s incidental intercepts of Americans abroad.

Obama relaxed the rules back in 2011 that allowed these aides access they would not have otherwise had claiming the less stringent security measures would allow the government to more easily fight terrorism, espionage, and hacking threats.

Rice was subpoenaed by the House Intelligence Committee back in June.  Her testimony was part of a larger investigation into the unmasking of Americans under the Obama administration, yet Rice continues to maintain that she “dindu nuffin.”

Under certain parameters the law allows some senior government officials to be given unfettered access to classified information, and their “need to know” is waived under “Executive Order 13526 Section 4.4 Access by Historical Researchers and Certain Former Government Personnel.”   However, due to the current ongoing Congressional investigation, as well as President Trump’s ongoing and continued concern that members of his team were unmasked, Rice’s security clearance should have been limited to congressional testimony only or even revoked altogether until the conclusion of the investigation.

Rice and Brennan have both confirmed they sought the unredacted names of Americans in NSA-sourced intelligence reports. Yet both also maintain that these requests were not at all improper or untoward but a routine part of their jobs.

This letter essentially undercuts any assertions that President Trump made about Rice’s unmasking activity being inappropriate.  McMaster essentially stated for all intents and purposes without any input whatsoever from President Trump that Rice did nothing wrong and therefore should not be stripped of her security clearance and the right to ‘need-to-know.’

At this point, many are demanding to know why McMaster is still even working within the Trump administration while he wrecks this sort of havoc?  Why is he making decisions on his own that undermine the Trump administration without permission, approval, or any sort of input from President Trump whatsoever?  What is he hoping to accomplish? Why is he being allowed to fire those loyal to President Trump and his administration, yet keep people from Obama’s previous administration?  Why is he being allowed to undermine the President without repercussions?
