(Before It's News)

In an article in the Wall Street Journal titled, “House Intel Panel Wants Susan Rice to Testify in Russia Probe”, Susan Rice denies being the person who outed Flynn. As a matter of fact she is backed up in that assertion by someone in the Congress.

A Republican official familiar with deliberations by GOP lawmakers on the House Intelligence Committee said that the names of two U.S. citizens who were part of Mr. Trump’s transition team have been unmasked in intelligence reports.

One is Mr. Flynn and the other hasn’t been identified, said the official. The report involving Mr. Flynn documented phone conversations he had in late December with the Russian ambassador to the U.S.

The official said Ms. Rice had requested the unmasking of at least one transition official—not Mr. Flynn—who was part of multiple foreign conversations that weren’t related to Russia.

Mr. Flynn was forced to resign after misleading White House officials, including Vice President Mike Pence, about the nature of his conversations with the ambassador, which current and former officials said concerned the possible easing of Obama-era sanctions on Russia.

The Republican official and others said Ms. Rice wasn’t the administration official who instigated Mr. Flynn’s unmasking.”

Uh Oh. It sounds like that unnamed Republican official knows who the other Obama official is.

Remember, the illegal act that occurred was not the collection of data. Nor was it sharing it with Ms. Rice. The law was broken when the names of American citizens who were encountered during the collection were released to the media. That is what caused General Flynn to end up unemployed.
