  • Susan Rice Gives a Pathetic Excuse for Her 2012 Benghazi Disinformation Tour

    Susan Rice is reportedly on Joe Biden’s shortlist to be his running mate, and because of this, she’s clearly trying to get ahead of negative stories that are bound to come up should she be selected. The most significant story is the role she played as chief propagandist for the Obama administration after the 2012 terrorist attack on the U.S consulate in Benghazi. [SNIP] In an interview with The Atlantic’s Edward-Isaac Dovere, she addressed this liability head on. Dovere: The Sunday-show appearances around the Benghazi attack have become so much of your public identity. Your mother actually warned you not...

    Former national security adviser Susan Rice tells NPR she's "honored and humbled" to be on Joe Biden's shortlist for vice president and that her lengthy tenure in the executive branch would make her an effective No. 2. "I think I could bring my experience of almost now 20 years in the senior levels of the executive branch to bear to help tackle the most pressing problems we face," she told Morning Edition's Steve Inskeep in an interview that aired Tuesday.

    "To hear Ambassador Rice talk that way, it's just crazy," Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said on Monday, following Rice's Sunday appearance on "Meet the Press," where she blasted the Trump administration for "incompetence" regarding raw intelligence that Russia paid the Taliban to kill American troops in Afghanistan. In her Sunday appearance, Rice acted as though the unverified intelligence about Russian bounties was factual. "The message to Vladimir Putin is you can kill American service men and women with absolute impunity," she said. "You know, she has a history of going on Sunday shows and lying," Pompeo told Fox News's...

    During an interview on MSNBC about Campaign 2020, Ambassador Susan Rice, the former national security adviser to President Barack Obama, stressed that Joe Biden needs to win the election because he is the leader who can "consign" Trump and his Senate supporters to the "trash heap of history."

    Friday on MSNBC’s “Andrea Mitchell Reports,” former Obama administration National Security Adviser Susan Rice commented on Mary Elizabeth Taylor resigning as assistant secretary of state for legislative affairs because of President Donald Trump’s response to racial tensions in the country. Mitchell said, “I want to ask you about this resignation. Unlike John Bolton, for instance, resigning, and making a lot of money, or Jim Mattis resigning and not explaining until later exactly why he was resigning, this was direct, it was personal, it names President Trump, it was specific.”

    Former Obama administration national security adviser Susan Rice bizarrely suggested in a televised interview Sunday that the Russians could be behind the violent nationwide demonstrations following the in-custody death of George Floyd, although she offered no evidence for the incendiary claim. Rice's made the claim after top Democrats insisted for years that the White House had conspired with Russia, although Special Counsel Robert Mueller found no evidence to support any conspiracy with Russia by any U.S. actor to influence the 2016 election. Her remarks also came amid efforts by Democrats to pin the blame on outside white supremacist agitators, even...

    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.

    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...

    Sunday on CNN’s “Fareed Zakaria GPS,” while discussing President Donald Trump’s foreign policy, President Barack Obama’s former national security adviser Susan Rice said it has been “unsteady and rocky” like the “crazy aunt in the attic that nobody knows what is going to do next.” When asked to characterize Trump’s foreign policy, Rice said, “I think obviously, Fareed, it’s only been just about 100 days, so it’s early days, but I would say that in many respects it’s been unsteady and rocky. And by that I would point particularly to the fact tha

    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...

    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...

    "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:

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.

    CNS News ^ | March 23, 2017 | Patrick Goodenough – 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.
