    Rice told House investigators why she unmasked senior Trump officials

    Rice told House investigators why she unmasked senior Trump officials

    This is getting interesting. Trump may live to regret making such a big deal about the unmasking.

    Lots of details at the link, in the text and in the video. And most telling is that even Republicans are saying that Rice's explanation was satisfactory.

    .... Rice's suggestion that she unmasked the names of US individuals -- who turned out to be Trump associates -- over concerns about the propriety of the crown prince's visit to the United States could help her fend off attacks that she was out of line in the actions she took.

    Rep. Trey Gowdy, a South Carolina Republican who is helping lead the House investigation, told the Daily Caller "nothing that came up in her interview that led me to conclude" that she improperly unmasked the names of Trump associates or leaked it to the press.

    I read about this earlier today. My guess is just like accusing Obama of "wire-tapping" him, he will sweep the accusations against Rice under the rug.

    But by Trump making a big deal about the unmasking, the various investigative committees were obligated to look into it, and as a result they're uncovering more about the inappropriate behavior of those in Trump's inner circle, giving more fodder for Mueller's investigation. Trump can go silent on the subject and hope it goes away, but the genie is out of the bottle.
