An explosive report from Circa indicates that Ben Rhodes, former deputy national security adviser for strategic communication to president Barack Obama, is now a “person of interest” in the House Intelligence Committee’s unmasking investigation.
Rhodes is as slimy as it gets amongst former Obama administration officials, having sold America up a river in the Iran nuclear negotiations and bragging to the New York Times Magazine about his ability to lie to the American media regarding details of the deal.
Now he is reportedly the center of an investigation into unmasking of Trump campaign associates and the “selective, anonymous leaking” of information for political purposes.
Via the Blaze:
Ben Rhodes, a former national security advisor in the Obama administration, is now considered a “person of interest” in an investigation by the House Intelligence Committee into the “unmasking” scandal.
According to a report from Circa News, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) sent a letter to the National Security Agency asking for information in regards to unmasking requests from Rhodes.
Congressional sources told Circa that the committee wants to know how many unmasking requests Rhodes made from Jan. 1, 2016 to Jan. 20, 2017.
Nunes announced in a letter to the Director of National Intellignece last week, that the committee had “found evidence that current and former government officials had easy access to U.S. person information and that it is possible that they used this information to achieve partisan political purposes, including the selective, anonymous leaking of such information.”
Reports say @brhodes unmasked American citizens then info shortly showed up in leaks.
Hopefully this leftist tyrant ends up in jail

Senator Lindsey Graham previously warned of congressional hearings involving Rhodes and former national security advisor to Obama, Susan Rice, to determine if they had illegally obtained intelligence reports to use against President Trump’s associates.
“They manipulated the information, I think for political reason,” Graham said. “So, when it comes to Susan Rice and Ben Rhodes, verify, don’t trust.”
@brhodes It’s about time you’re being investigated for your participation in the corrupt Obama administration.

Rhodes, along with several other Obama administration officials, has also been alleged to have spied on Fox News host, Sean Hannity.
“I’ll be very rich if in fact it happened,” Hannity threatened. “I’ll sue Obama himself, Ben Rhodes, Susan Rice — I’ll sue them all by name in a civil action.”
