Democrats in pursuit of a scandal may be hoist on their own petard

Ed Rogers:
The pursuit of Trump may have caught the Obama White House

The cacophony of accusations, deflections and distractions has led us to the latest revelation that is causing a “holy cow” double-take, plot-thickening moment in Washington: President Obama’s national security adviser, Susan Rice, sought to unmask the identities of Trump aides whose conversations had been collected through routine electronic intercepts of foreign officials’ communications. To unmask, or reveal, the identities of U.S. citizens whose names and conversations were gathered through incidental collection is unusual. And there are more suspicious reasons for Obama’s national security adviser to have sought to unmask the identities of Trump campaign aides than there are valid reasons. Rice has a history of a strained relationship with the truth, and for a national security adviser, she has, at times, flown close to the partisan political flame. So, what was going on? Why did she do it? And with whom, in the government and the media, did she share the information?
With Democrats with and without byline rushing to her defense it makes non-Democrats even more suspicious of the Obama White House and the media seeking to protect it.
