'Unmasking' Reporter Speaks Out: 'How Long Has This Thing Been Going On?'
Susan Rice, who was former President Barack Obama’s national security advisor, made dozens of requests seeking to unmask the identities of Donald Trump associates identified in intelligence reports, according to a bombshell report.
Rice’s involvement in the request to unmask the Trump officials was discovered by White House lawyers last month, Bloomberg View columnist Eli Lake reported on Monday.
Lake joined Steve Doocy on "Fox & Friends" this morning to discuss his report and what it reveals about how intelligence is collected and disseminated.
Lake said this story is much bigger than President Trump, because it shows how easy it is for officials to learn the identity of American citizens who are not targets of electronic eavesdropping, but whose communications are collected incidentally.
"How long has this thing been going on?" Lake wondered. "And how long has a senior White House official been able to do this?"
He said this raises many questions about "incidentally collected" intelligence being used for political gain, as opposed to national security.
"Those are things that we should reform, I would imagine. And I don't understand why Democrats are not more interested in that," Lake said.
