Corruption and Crime

The internet exploded this morning.  It seems that there is credible evidence that Susan Rice, Obama's National Security Advisor, ordered the intelligence agencies to intercept the phone calls of candidate Donald Trump.
Former President Barack Obama’s national security adviser Susan Rice ordered U.S. spy agencies to produce “detailed spreadsheets” of legal phone calls involving Donald Trump and his aides when he was running for president, according to former U.S. Attorney Joseph diGenova.
“What was produced by the intelligence community at the request of Ms. Rice were detailed spreadsheets of intercepted phone calls with unmasked Trump associates in perfectly legal conversations with individuals,” diGenova told The Daily Caller News Foundation Investigative Group Monday.
I'm not really versed on national security law, but I suspect that intercepting the phone calls of presidential candidates probably violates one or more of the criminal statutes related to wiretapping.   The bigger question, though, is; if Susan Rice is involved, how deep is President Obama in this mess?

"...how deep is President Obama in this mess?" Up to his eye-balls, probably at the request of the Clintons.

... and we are already seeing the predictable denials and ignoring the whole issue.
