    Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said he would continue to look into whether Obama National Security Adviser Susan Rice improperly unmasked Trump campaign officials, after she declined his invite to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Russian interference in the 2016 elections next week. “At an appropriate time, I expect we will continue down this path. I hope Ms. Rice will come before the committee – and not just the press,” he said in a statement..... a recent Wall Street Journal editorial took issue with her assertion, pointing out that Democrats in 2005 had claimed the practice was infrequent, especially...
  • Gowdy: Congress May Subpoena Susan Rice to Testify About Unmasking If Necessary

    Rep. Trey Gowdy (R., S.C.) told Fox News on Thursday morning that Congress may subpoena Barack Obama's former national security adviser, Susan Rice, to testify about unmasking Trump transition officials. Rice declined an invitation to testify next week before a Senate subcommittee on Russian interference in the 2016 presidential campaign. Republicans have asked Rice to appear before lawmakers after reports revealed last month that she requested on several occasions the identities of "masked" U.S. persons in intelligence reports linked to President Trump's transition and campaign.
  • President Trump Slams Susan Rice in Back-to-Back Tweets

    Another day, another set of early morning tweets from President Donald Trump. On Wednesday, former Obama National Security Adviser Susan Rice declined an invitation to testify before the Senate Judiciary subcommittee on crime and terrorism. Rice was asked to appear in order to discuss Russia’s actions during the 2016 election, though it is likely that she would have also faced questions about the practice of “unmasking” Americans who get involved with foreign figures under investigation by the intelligence community.

    Former National Security Advisor Susan Rice has turned down a request to testify before the Senate Judiciary subcommittee on crime and terrorism. CNN was first to report––and Fox News subsequently reported––that Rice’s lawyer sent a letter back to committee chair Lindsey Graham and Democratic ranking member Sheldon Whitehouse that said, in part, “Chairman Graham’s invitation was extended only after the hearing was noticed, less than two weeks before the hearing was scheduled to occur, and without consultation with Ambassador Rice, a professional courtesy that would customarily be extended to any witness.” The letter also alleges that this was not truly...

    wsj.com ^ | April 30, 2017
    Democrats and their press allies are going all in to squelch the Susan Rice “unmasking” story, insisting that the decision by Barack Obama’s national security adviser to seek the name of at least one Trump campaign official was routine and no big deal. Tell that to former Bush Administration official John Bolton, whom Democrats pilloried for doing the same with far more justification. Democrats argued (with no evidence) that Mr. Bolton’s requests were politically motivated and the Los Angeles Times questioned whether Mr. Bolton had requested the names to “intimidate intelligence analysts.” A Times editorial called on Mr. Bolton to...

    It is clear from it that she is still proud of spying on Trump. ___ Susan Rice’s Twitter account is one of many windows on her partisanship. Even in the midst of an investigation into her political espionage, she can’t resist a few feverish re-tweets. The most remarkable one came on Thursday. It was a re-tweet of a reckless column by E.J. Dionne that seeks to revive, sans evidence, the fable of Trump-Russia collusion in last year’s election. It is clear from this re-tweet that Rice remains proud of the Obama administration’s spying on Trump and his aides. Notice that...
  • Report: House Investigation of Susan Rice Scandal Expanding

    Fox News reported Tuesday night that members of the House Intelligence Committee have expanded their investigation into the Susan Rice surveillance controversy. Appearing on The O'Reilly Factor, investigative reporter Adam Housley said the following: They're looking into allegations where Americans including politicians have possibly been unmasked and had their information collected into the files, similar to what they did to the Trump team. Housley also said that both the House and Senate investigations are being stonewalled: They say the FBI is being very difficult. We're told [investigators] just want to know about the unmasking. How frequent was this? Who was...

    After a review of the same intelligence reports brought to light by House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes, both Republican and Democratic lawmakers and aides have so far found no evidence that Obama administration officials did anything unusual or illegal, multiple sources in both parties tell CNN. . .One congressional intelligence source described the requests made by Rice as "normal and appropriate" for officials who serve in that role to the president. And another source said there's "absolutely" no smoking gun in the reports, urging the White House to declassify them to make clear there was nothing alarming in the documents.Still,...

    The media have had, and will continue to have, a vested interest in preserving Obama’s foreign policy legacy The Washington Post’s fact-checker, Glenn Kessler, recently gave Susan Rice four Pinocchios for a false and misleading statement regarding Syria’s chemical weapons stockpile. But what is notable about this story is not that Rice lied. She has done that many times. Rather, the remarkable part of this story is that the Post took so long to wake up to this Obama administration falsehood. After all, Kessler’s evidence that Syria still had a chemical weapons capability reaches back two years, to a period...

    The chemical weapon attack by the Syrian government of Bashar al-Assad on the rebel-held town Khan Sheikhoun in Idlib Province on April 4 once again underscores what a foreign policy failure President Obama was and what a serial liar Susan Rice is. On January 16, 2017, Rice, who served as U.N. Ambassador during Obama’s first term and was rewarded for her Benghazi lies with the post of National Security Advisor, where she could be compelled to testify before Congress, Gave what amounted to an exit interview with NPR.

    Back in January in an in interview with NPR, Obama national security adviser Susan Rice was still touting the Obama administration's success at removing chemical weapons in Syria: "We were able to find a solution that didn't necessitate the use of force that actually removed the chemical weapons that were known from Syria, in a way that the use of force would never have accomplished." Between her dubious public statements on Benghazi, the Bowe Bergdahl desertion, her recent denial that she knew anything about unmasking Trump officials' identities in intelligence reports, and now this—it would seem Rice has a real...

    It seems the former national security adviser has a credibility problem. According to a recent headline from Reuters, "U.S. intelligence agencies suspect Assad did not turn over all chemical weapons stockpile." The evidence of the recent chemical attack in Syria makes that declaration little more than stating the obvious. However, back in January in an in interview with NPR, Obama national security adviser Susan Rice was still touting the Obama administration's success at removing chemical weapons in Syria: ...

    The Obama Administration's surveillance of the Trump campaign and transition teams, if true, is an egregious criminal act. It makes Watergate look like child's play. Watergate happened over 40 years ago. It was a GOP Administration at the time that was under investigation. Congressional Republicans cooperated admirably and fully in the nationally televised Senate Watergate Committee hearings which captivated a nation, and fully supported the appointment and work of Special Prosecutors Archibald Cox, then Leon Jaworski. It was Republican Senator Howard Baker who famously posed the question on national television, "What did the president know, and when did he know...

    The worst kind of bias is the bias of omission. And that was never more on display than after reports surfaced earlier this week alleging former Obama National Security Adviser Susan Rice's had unmasked Trump transition team members. So why is this a big story that deserves attention? Simply put, one of the highest-ranking members of the previous administration unmasked names of members of the incoming administration via classified intelligence reports, prompting many questions that warrant dogged journalism: Who leaked the information to newspapers like The Washington Post? Who, if anyone, ordered Rice to unmask the names of private U.S....

    A few days ago, Mike Cernovich broke the news that ex-Obama advisor Susan Rice had asked for the identities of Americans caught up in electronic surveillance of foreigners, including some Trump associates. After Mike broke the story, the big news organizations followed. I asked my well-informed Trump-hating friend what he thought of the story. He said he hadn’t heard of it. I was surprised. It was the headline news. While we were on the phone, he checked CNN’s website on his computer and informed me that no such story existed. In his words, it was probably “fake news” that he...
