  • Report: House Investigation of Susan Rice Scandal Expanding

    04/12/2017 10:22:58 AM PDT · by hotsteppa · 55 replies
    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...
  • 12 Days ago, Susan Rice denied any knowledge of 'unmasking' Trump intel

    "I know nothing about this." Just 12 Days ago, Susan Rice appeared on PBS News hour and was asked about the “unmasking” scandal that, today, blew up in her face. Her denial is nothing short of astonishing. If this morning’s Bloomberg report is correct, Susan Rice was the Obama admin official demanding the unmasking of Trump transition team members whose protected identities had been swept up in “incidental” intel collection. ...And yet there she was, less than two weeks ago claiming to know nothing about any of it. From the official transcript of the interview:

    Video Link Here's a transcript from her March 22nd interview: WOODRUFF: We spoke earlier this evening with former Obama White House National Security Adviser Susan Rice, the author of that piece. It was her first interview since leaving the White House. I began by asking about the allegations leveled today by House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes that Trump transition officials, including the president, may have been swept up in surveillance of foreigners at the end of the Obama administration. RICE: I know nothing about this. I was surprised to see reports from Chairman Nunes on that count today. And...

    CNSNews.com) – Former Obama administration national security adviser Susan Rice was castigated on social media over a Washington Post op-ed accusing the Trump White House of dissembling and contorting the facts, but doubled down in a PBS interview Wednesday, saying when the White House puts out information seen to be “inaccurate if not deliberately false, it shakes the credibility and the confidence of our allies.” The criticism greeting the op-ed almost universally pointed to the fact that, in an earlier role as President Obama’s ambassador to the U.N., Rice was sent by the White House to deliver to five Sunday...

    Former National Security Adviser Susan Rice pushed back Wednesday against President Donald Trump’s claim that he was wiretapped by the Obama administration during the 2016 election. “Nothing of the sort occurred,” Rice told PBS NewsHour’s Judy Woodruff, in her first interview since stepping down as national security adviser when President Barack Obama left office. Rice also took aim at the Trump White House in a Washington Post op-ed Wednesday. “False statements from the White House are part of a disturbing pattern of behavior that poses real and potentially profound dangers to U.S. national security,” Rice wrote. In the PBS NewsHour...

    Susan E. Rice was national security adviser from 2013 to 2017 and U.S. permanent representative to the United Nations from 2009 to 2013. Last week, the British intelligence agency GCHQ took the rare step of debunking as “utterly ridiculous” the Trump administration’s insinuation that Britain spied on Donald Trump during the 2016 campaign. On Monday, FBI Director James B. Comey testified plainly that “I have no information that supports” President Trump’s accusations that his predecessor ordered the “wires tapped” at Trump Tower. These false statements from the White House are part of a disturbing pattern of behavior that poses real...

    You say “Susan Rice,” any sentient being says “lied about a video being the cause of Benghazi.” So who was the mastermind in Dem Central who decided that Rice was the right person to make the case that, when it comes to foreign affairs, the credibility of an administration’s statements is of paramount importance? Yet there is Susan Rice’s op-ed in today’s Washington Post, entitled “When the White House twists the truth, we are all less safe.” Excerpts:

    Hillary Clinton met with Susan Rice just before the United Nations ambassador appeared on political talk shows and blamed the 2012 terror attack in Benghazi on a spontaneous demonstration, a move that ultimately dashed her hopes for higher office. A schedule published by the State Department Monday indicates Clinton and Rice met the morning of Sept. 14, 2012, three days after the Benghazi attack and two days before Rice made her now-infamous round of the Sunday shows.

    “Look, I think it is absolutely vital for every country, every leader to send a signal that the viciousness of a handful of killers does not stop the world from doing vital business,” Obama said, when asked on Sunday whether the attacks would have an effect on the mood of the summit. Obama has repeatedly emphasized the damaging effect that climate change has on national security in preparation for the summit. During a Coast Guard graduation speech in May, Obama emphasized that the recruits would be facing the threat global warming. “Climate change constitutes a serious threat to global security,...

    Politico Magazine published an excerpt from Ambassador Dennis Ross’ latest book “Doomed to Succeed: The US–Israeli relationship from Truman to Obama,” which highlighted how President Barack Obama succeeded with the Iran Deal at the expense of the two allies’ relationship. According to Ross, National Security Adviser Susan Rice told the national director of the Anti-Defamation League Abe Foxman that in reacting to the deal, which Israel knew little about, Netanyahu did everything “but use ‘the n-word’ in describing the president.” In his book, Ross argues that “It didn’t have to play out that way.” Per Politico: From the outset of...

    Deputy national security advisor Tony Blinken struggled to cover for his boss Susan Rice on Tuesday, backtracking from her contention that Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl “served with honor and distinction” in the face of tough questions from NBC reporter Andrea Mitchell. Mitchell confronted Blinken over Rice’s Sunday claim that Bergdahl “served with honor and distinction” — an assertion almost immediately disproven by scores of Bergdahl’s comrades and official Pentagon reports, which show the soldier abandoned his post and may have been seeking to join the Taliban. “Why did Susan Rice say he served with honor and distinction?” she asked. “It...

    “That information turned out, in some respects, not to be 100 percent correct," Rice said. "But the notion that somehow I or anybody else in the administration misled the American people is patently false. And I think that that's been amply demonstrated." She was, at the time, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations and a top candidate to become secretary of state. However, Rice withdrew herself from consideration in the wake of the attacks on the U.S. outpost in Benghazi, Libya, after the firestorm of criticism she received for her response. Rice said Sunday she didn’t know whether her...

    Why Do Democrats Lie? Because they can. James Foard 12/31/2013 Obviously, the Susan Rice interview with Lesley Stahl on CBS 60 Minutes December 22, 2013 does not represent true journalism. It does show the astounding level of insouciance that has pervaded the leftist political hemisphere and their lackeys in the liberal news media when they feel they can roll one lie out right after another; not just, mind you little white fibs, but in-your-face, blatant, over-the-top, "go to blazes I'll say what I want to" lies, where truth is merely a manufactured token to be used for the moment and...

    New evidence reveals the Obama administration’s version of the events that took place in Benghazi on September 11, 2012 was based on a tissue of lies. The Weekly Standard’s Steven Hayes has obtained a timeline and a series of emails revealing the self-serving efforts made by administration officials, who heavily edited CIA talking points about the attack that cost four Americans, including ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens, their lives. Also revealed is who made the changes and why they made them. The revelations are part of a report published by the five Republican Committee chairmen that has been largely dismissed...

    “Secretary Clinton had originally been asked by networks to go on. She declined to do it.” -- Susan Rice, U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, talking to NBC News. The Obama Democrats are today furious at the opposition of Republicans that ended the bid of presidential favorite U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice to replace outgoing Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Rice, a stalwart retainer of the House of Obama, knows that Clinton, the matriarch of the rival Democratic clan, let the ambitious ambassador take the fall. - But this would be sort of like being upset at the bear that...

H/t NB reader Carmel. Here were some of Klein's astounding assertions: There are no unanswered questions about Benghazi. Ambassador Stevens had all the security he wanted. Rice's talking points were "absolutely accurate"--it was a spontaneous demonstration by extremists. Al qaeda was not involved in the attack. Not clear that...

    By Monday, October 15, 6:38 PM A month after the assault on the U.S. mission in Benghazi, a fateful series of television appearances by Susan E. Rice, the American ambassador to the United Nations, is haunting the Obama administration in the face of allegations that it deliberately attempted to play down suspicions of terrorist involvement. Rice made the rounds of the Sunday morning talk shows on Sept. 16, five days after the attack in the Libyan city, and in each one she said the fatal assault appeared to have stemmed from a spontaneous protest over an anti-Islam video.

    U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Susan Rice, in her first public comments on Libya since her controversial account days after the attack, blamed intelligence community talking points for the faulty narrative. The light-on-details explanation Monday came as Secretary of State Hillary Clinton took responsibility for any security failures leading up to the consulate attack last month. But with the accounts coming as both presidential candidates head into a debate Tuesday night that will focus in part on foreign policy, neither appeared to settle mounting questions on the Hill about how the administration got the story so wrong. Rice did not...
