National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster is raising attention in the White House over a letter he sent to Susan Rice giving her access to classified information.
Many Trump supporters weren’t happy when they learned McMaster had sent this letter to Susan Rice, former National Security Advisor, who has been called before the Senate to answer questions on possible unmasking of American citizens.
The NSC told Fox News that Rice wouldn’t have access to “view” classified information, but if she was called in to testify, she could discuss classified information.

That doesn’t make sense to me because in reading the letter it specifics, you have “access” to all classified information. In the 2nd paragraph, it got specific and said “pertaining to you.”
This seems like a cover-up, and I am sure you might agree with me, things just don’t seem right.

McMaster already has been in the spotlight for a series of firings he’s ordered on the National Security Council. Most recently, he ousted Ezra Cohen-Watnick, the senior director for intelligence at the National Security Council who had been viewed as a Trump loyalist.
But Circa first reported Thursday that McMaster sent a letter giving Rice access to classified material, weeks after her alleged role was disclosed in ‘unmasking’ identities of Trump associates in intelligence reports.
Fox News is told by National Security Council sources, however, that the letter was a pro forma document similar to those sent to every living former national security adviser and former president – and that he was required to send it.
The NSC also told Fox News that extending Rice’s security clearance doesn’t mean she gets to look at any classified information. It just means that she can be called back in (if necessary) to have conversations about classified information.
But the fact he sent the letter to Rice – given the controversy surrounding her and the “unmasking” of members of the Trump campaign, transition and administration in intelligence documents – was not viewed favorably by members of the administration who aren’t particular fans of McMaster.
How much do you want to bet there is a lot of bribery going on? Someone needs to look at this. When someone out of character or not following the people that put him in office does the opposite, I smell a skunk.
H.R. McMaster, why does Susan Rice still need her top-secret security clearance?

Serious question: Can someone please explain why people who no longer work in the White House, etc., would still be allowed to have a security clearance? It makes no sense to me.
Trump voters are starting to get infuriated with all the anti-Trump actions that are going on. It’s very disgusting that the Dems seem to have gone unpunished for their illegal actions.
When are the Republicans going to put on their big boy pants and start acting on behalf of the people who voted them into office?
There will be many different results at the upcoming elections of these idiots. This administration must start demolishing these swamp rats NOW.
We need to keep praying folks. The wasp nest is stirred up, but God can get out the bug spray if we humble ourselves to seek God’s face on behalf of our country. We are in warfare within and staring at war with North Korea from without. We need God to move in America again.
Do you believe that letter was created just so that Rice could talk about classified material like the National Security Council said or do you think it’s something else more sinister? Share your opinion below in the comment section and add this to your Facebook/Twitter timeline.
