Headlines have been filled with information regarding National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster and former NSA head Susan Rice.
It seems that McMaster, who could be replaced and heading to Afghanistan soon, allowed Rice to keep her security clearance even after she was accused of unmasking several Trump associates.
Circa reported about McMaster’s letter to Rice, in which he allows her to continue receiving classified documents. According to the report, one month after Rice was accused of unmasking members of President Trump’s team and other Americans, H.R. McMaster, sent an official letter giving her unfettered and continuing access to classified information and waiving her “need-to-know” requirement on anything she viewed or received during her tenure, Circa has confirmed.
Rice got the letter by mail sometime during April this year. President Trump wasn’t aware about any of this, according to two Senior West Wing officials and an intelligence official, who spoke to Circa on condition that they not be named.
The letter said:
“I hereby waive the requirement that you must have a ‘need-to-know’ to access any classified information contained in items you originated, reviewed, signed or received while serving, as National Security Adviser. NSC will continue to work with you to ensure the appropriate security clearance documentation remains on file to allow you access to classified information.”
Circa reported in March that during President Obama’s tenure, top aides — including Rice, former CIA Director John Brennan and former Attorney General Loretta Lynch — did daily reviews on intelligence reports received from the National Security Agency’s incidental intercepts of Americans abroad. They took advantage of rules Obama relaxed starting in 2011 to help the government better fight terrorism, espionage by foreign enemies and hacking threats, according to documents obtained by Circa.
