It wasn’t too long ago when Susan Rice, Barack Obama’s former national security adviser, made multiple requests to unmask Trump’s associates and reveal their identities. The ridiculous requests were under the guise of “national security” concerns. It’s pretty obvious that there was no Russian hacking happening to favor Trump during the recent election. The claims were all a part of baseless attacks by democrats against Donald Trump.
Now, in a bit of irony, Rice is declining the Senate’s request for her to testify in front of a judiciary subcommittee–regarding Russian interference during the presidential election. It is hard to believe that Rice would turn down the request, that is, unless she knew all along that the Trump/Russia connection was just a giant lie told by democrats. Rice apparently doesn’t like getting “called out” to back up the democrats insane rhetoric.
Sources say that while Senator Graham (a republican) requested Rice’s appearance, Senator Whitehouse (a democrat) felt that it was unneccessary and irrelevant for her to testify on the particular topic.
As reported “Senator Whitehouse has informed us by letter that he did not agree to Chairman Graham’s invitation to Ambassador Rice, a significant departure from the bipartisan invitations extended to other witnesses,” Rice’s lawyer Kathryn Ruemmler wrote in a letter to Graham. “Under these circumstances, Ambassador Rice respectfully declines Senator Graham’s invitation to testify.”
Does Susan Rice no longer believe that Russians were involved with the recent election, or does declining the request just prove that Russian hacking claims were a lie all along? It would be hard to decline the Senate’s request if she actually believed the Russians stole the election for Trump.
