Donald Trump Trusts 'Fox & Friends' Over His Own Intelligence Community

Fox News' Adam Housley reported that the individual who in the course of an investigation exposed the names of multiple USA citizens affiliated with Donald Trump is someone "very well known, very high up, very senior in the intelligence world". "Obama pal and noted dissembler Susan Rice said to have been spying on Trump campaign". The exposure or unmasking is likely a felony.
The individual is not in the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
White House lawyers last month discovered that the former national security adviser Susan Rice requested the identities of US persons in raw intelligence reports on dozens of occasions that connect to the Donald Trump transition and campaign, according to USA officials familiar with the matter.
Intelligence analysts said it is extremely rare for a private citizen to be "unmasked", or named, in an intelligence report.
The only safe place to see related documents without compromising the sources' identities was at the old executive office building on White House grounds.
This morning Housley elaborated on what he has found and it is deeply troubling.
Donald Trump has apparently used Twitter to alert the Federal Bureau of Investigation to allegations of "electronic surveillance" against him. It's unprecedented the way this was done. "Would be sad for U.S". That means basically taken out of the report...
Nunes came under fire for alleged closeness to the Trump team, particularly when it emerged that White House officials colluded with him during his investigation into the alleged surveillance.
Brazile has since said in an essay for TIME that prior to becoming interim DNC chair she shared "potential town hall topics" with the Clinton campaign, in emails she says were "a mistake I will forever regret". "They shouldn't be allowed to use a story unless they put their name out there". They have launched a full-throated attack on Chairman Nunes for both going to the White House complex and for the March press conference.
To view such a measure as unreasonable on its face, one would need to forget that the FBI's investigation of the Trump campaign is now a publicly known fact.
"Unmasking is not unprecedented, but unmasking for political purposes ... specifically of Trump transition team members ... is highly suspect and questionable", an intelligence source told Fox News.
