Mike Cernovich, a political reporter who has was called “fake news” on the CBS program 60 Minutes, is now known as the first journalist to uncover that Obama’s national security advisor Susan Rice took steps to unmask the identities of Trump associates.
Cernovich wrote on Sunday that New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman (in photo) knew about Rice’s illegal spying activity, and “(chose) to sit on it in an effort to protect the reputation of former President Barack Obama.”
Bloomberg’s Eli Lake confirmed Cernovich’s report on Monday, but did not include any details about Haberman sitting on the story. In an interview, the journalist told The Daily Caller that Lake also sat on the story over the weekend.
The Bloomberg story did not attribute or credit Cernovich.
