4:05PM ET - Eli Lake, Bloomberg View Columnist, wrote an article exposing the Obama administration for all of their bias and the overarching surveillance handled by people as high up as Susan Rice, former National Security Advisor for the Obama Administration.
White House lawyers last month learned that the former national security adviser Susan Rice requested the identities of U.S. persons in raw intelligence reports on dozens of occasions that connect to the Donald Trump transition and campaign, according to U.S. officials familiar with the matter.
The pattern of Rice's requests was discovered in a National Security Council review of the government's policy on "unmasking" the identities of individuals in the U.S. who are not targets of electronic eavesdropping, but whose communications are collected incidentally. Normally those names are redacted from summaries of monitored conversations and appear in reports as something like "U.S. Person One." (H/T BLOOMBERG)
4:30PM ET - Colonel Oliver North, while the democrats shut down the government and continue their witch-hunt for a non-existent connection between the Trump administration, threats are swelling all around us. Those threats come from real enemies, North Korea and Iran and they are far more imminent than anything Schumer or McCaskill are aware of:
Trump made the comments in a Financial Times interview posted Sunday on the newspaper’s website.
“We will talk about North Korea," Trump said. "And China has great influence over North Korea. And China will either decide to help us with North Korea, or they won't. And if they do that will be very good for China, and if they don't it won't be good for anyone."
Trump added that the United States could "totally" handle the situation in North Korea without China's help. While China provides diplomatic and economic support to its neighbor, it claims that its influence over Kim Jong Un's government is limited.
However, Trump also made clear again that he won’t reveal his foreign policy strategy through the news media.
"I'm not going to tell you (my plan). You know, I am not the United States of the past where we tell you where we are going to hit in the Middle East," he said. (H/T Fox News)
