"Fresh evidence" came Monday when it was revealed Susan Rice, national security adviser for former President Barack Obama, may have "unmasked" Trump associates in surveillance activities, according to an editorial in the New York Post.

The revelation gives weight to the belief that Obama officials planned the current uproar over whether or not insiders in the administration of President Donald Trump colluded with Russians in phone conversations, the newspaper stated in an editorial Monday.

While nothing has been confirmed about the allegation against Rice, the editorial stressed the disclosure or "unmasking" of names was "perfectly legal" and had not revealed to date "that anyone on Team Trump said anything improper on those calls."

The revelation was reported by Bloomberg"s Eli Lake on Monday.

The surveillance may have started a year ago with the motive of preventing Trump officials from disregarding any information the intel revealed. Unmasking the information makes it easier to spread, thereby making it easier to leak. That, the newspaper said, "broke the spirit of the laws" protecting privacy.

The leaks have proved to be a "nagging political sore" for Trump, hindering the president on initiatives in his agenda and causing the White House to play defense in deflecting claims about charges made against his administration.

It was Rice in her role as national security advisor who spread the false information about a video causing the 2012 attack in Benghazi, leading the editorial to conclude she "certainly wasn't politically naïve about the political uses of intelligence information."

Which makes clearer why House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes recently revealed Trump officials had been surveilled. The editorial defined the two issues involved from the surveillance — "Russian meddling in the election, about which the nation already knows plenty — and the Obama team's efforts to sabotage Team Trump."
