The political world was rocked by the bombshell report that Susan Rice – Barack Obama’s National Security Advisor – had ordered the unmasking of Trump officials captured from surveillance.
The story substantiates the claims that the Trump team was spied on and that the Obama administration had leaked this classified intelligence for political gossip in effort to damage the Trump administration.
But CNN just got caught orchestrating a massive cover-up about this story.
Fox News originally broke the story that it was someone high-up in the intelligence world who had ordered the unmasking of Trump officials.
Fox also reported that the surveillance had gone on for much longer than anyone had previously known.

How did CNN cover the revelation?
They aired fake news claiming the Fox News report was “false” and refused to cover the substance of the story.
The ring leader of CNN’s fake news coverage was Jim Sciutto – who is CNN’s Chief National Security Correspondent.

But Sciutto is also a former Obama administration appointee.
He knows Susan Rice and worked with her husband, Ian Cameron, when they both worked at ABC News.
But the person denying the report on Rice’s behalf would not even attach their name to the statement, which diminishes the denial’s credibility.
CNN’s Don Lemon also ranted on air that the Susan Rice story was a “distraction” from the Russia story.
But so far, the Russia story is also fake news.
There are no allegations of wrong doing and there is no proof anyone from the Trump campaign did anything illegal or immoral.
Not one Trump associate has been named as a member of a conspiracy.
But in the leaked intelligence case, there is an actual crime – as well as an abuse of power – the leaking of the FISA intercepts and unmasking the Americans caught up in surveillance for political gain.
The media continues to push the fake news story that the Trump team colluded with the Russians on the DNC email hacks.
So far that story has produced zero evidence or allegations of wrong doing.
On the other hand, an Obama officially has been publically named – Susan Rice – as ordering the unmasking of private citizens.
CNN is trying to cover up this story and claim there’s nothing to see here.
But while they deny reality and air fake news, the ugly truth about Obama spying on Trump is being revealed.
