Susan Rice Declines Request to Testify to Senate on Russia

Former National Security Adviser Susan Rice has reportedly declined an invitation to testify before a Senate panel investigating Russian attempts to influence the U.S. election, walking back her earlier acceptance.

According to CNN, Ms. Rice’s initial acceptance of the invitation from Sen. Lindsey Graham, South Carolina Republican, was based on the presupposition that it was a bipartisan request.

However, Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse of Rhode Island, the ranking Democrat on the Judiciary subcommittee on Crime and Terrorism, reportedly told Ms. Rice that he did not approve of Mr. Graham’s invitation. According to a letter from Ms. Rice’s lawyer obtained by CNN, that scuppered her willingness to testify.

That is what the democrats do not want, but Republicans can subpoena her and let see if they do

Now the woman is bad business for the Democrats, she have a nasty dirty trail of lies that is only over shadow by her former employer Hillary Clinton, I guess she was a good teacher but no good enough


The woman who has been blamed with some accuracy for more fiascos than most can count is still with us. She first publicly demonstrated her bad judgment as far back as 1996 when as the Clinton National Security Council’s senior director for African affairs, she successfully urged the Clinton White House to refuse a Sudanese offer to turn al Qaeda’s Osama bin Laden over to the United States. Bin Laden had helped engineer the first World Trade Center bombing and, but for Ms. Rice, would have been taken down before he and his buddies finally brought the towers down eight years later.

No doubt gaining prestige for this sage advice, Ms. Rice steadily rose to become what passes for a foreign policy superstar in the Clinton and Obama world, finally ending up as President Obama’s national security adviser, where she worked internally to weaken this country’s support of Israel and was constantly available to heap praise on her boss and his accomplishments. She was selected by the White House communications team after the terrorist attack in Benghazi to falsely blame a hapless filmmaker for the debacle lest Mr. Obama’s re-election narrative that he had the terrorists on the run be jeopardized. It was then that Ms. Rice came into her own as a liar.

Comey Refuses To Publicly Address FBI Ties To ‘Peeing Russian Prostitutes’ Dossier

During yesterday’s Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on FBI oversight, FBI Director James B. Comey repeatedly refused to answer questions about his agency’s ties to the controversial, partially discredited 35-page dossier alleging collusion between Russia and Donald Trump’s presidential campaign.

The dossier reportedly served as the FBI’s justification for seeking court approval to clandestinely monitor Carter Page, who has been identified as a foreign policy adviser to Donald Trump.

In March, the BBC reported the document also served as a “roadmap” for the FBI’s investigation into claims of coordination between Moscow and members of Trump’s presidential campaign.


Trump shames former Obama National Security Adviser Susan Rice for declining to testify at Senate hearing on surveillance - 'Not good!'

'Susan Rice, the former National Security Advisor to President Obama, is refusing to testify before a Senate Subcommittee next week on...allegations of unmasking Trump transition officials. Not good!' he tweeted.

Maybe the student has surpassed the master... Or perhaps Rice was never really working for American interests to begin with...

Going all the way back to Bill's watch when she talked him out of arresting Osama bin Laden, and all the way through the Benghazi attack and arming the "moderate" ISIS -- cough! cough! choke! choke!!! -- and the "accidental" attacks on our allies... when did she ever act in our best interests? Never that I can see.

As Jesus warned/advised us: "We shall know them by the fruits of their labor." Or as Einstein said, "Insanity is doing the same thing again and again and expecting different results." We know what Susan Rice does and who it helps and it's not us.

Rice and Hillary had a nice cozy relationship that span few decades.

That is something that many have never really talked about here in ATS.

The Rice issue is not going to die any time soon, I am sure of that.

Oh definitely! I'm not trying to say otherwise. But Hillary has been screwed royally again and again by the party and by Obama and his peeps -- including Rice, starting when she supported Obama instead of Hillary in 2008. And Hillary was taking names of those who betrayed her...

Those Loyal to the Clintons Take Note of Who Was Not

Clinton Camp Instituted ‘Loyalty Scores’ Following 2008 Loss

But here's the thing: Hillary certainly isn't innocent by any stretch of the imagination. But Hillary is done in politics... so who better to scapegoat in order to protect those still active in politicking? If everyone's watching and blaming Hillary, no one's watching anyone else. And don't forget this:
FBI confirms grand jury subpoenas used in Clinton email probe

Hillary was also being investigated. We have no way of knowing for sure, but it stands to reason that Hillary was surveilled just like Trump... and we have no way of knowing what they found in this surveillance, so therefore we don't know what they might have to hold over her head. Remember the Wikileaks emails? There were none from Hillary. None. That wasn't an oversight or a coincidence or an accident. Someone had to go to the trouble of removing all of Hillary's emails from the dump... who? and why??? Is she being protected? Or blackmailed?

And one more thing: One of the earliest leaked emails told us that Chelsea was "investigating" within the Clinton Foundation... what exactly was she "investigating?" Who was she investigating? What did Chelsea (and Hillary) know that we don't know???

Again and again, we get these little tidbits about Hillary -- not enough for us to really know what the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth is, but more than enough to keep the public titillated and wondering... hence keeping the focus on Hillary and not Obama and his staff. Hillary hasn't been in office since 2012. Hillary has absolutely nothing to do with what what Obama's White House did in 2016.

I don't know the whole truth, but I know that Hillary's wings have been clipped and I don't know how or why... yet.


The Rice issue is not going to die any time soon, I am sure of that.


Not if we have anything to say about it at least!!! (And we do
)

That is not a healthy position to be in when you are that close to the Clintons and lights are about to be turned in your direction. I hope Ms. Rice doesn't suddenly develop "suicidal" thoughts or some "heart" ailment.

Ha, ha, you know all that stress of falling from grace can drive anybody "to be made into a suicide" poor Rice her political raise to power thanks to Hillary and Obama has lost the luster she is a fallen nobody very soon.

And for the love of God why is people in this board defending her still I don't get it.Boadiceathat is why I feel so upset and sound upset sometimes while posting but is nothing to do with this thread just some people around.

Darn the blindness is just incredible.

Just a few days ago, the woman doesn't know how to shut her mouth


Sunday on CNN’s “Fareed Zakaria GPS,” Susan Rice tried to defend her disgusting if not criminal behavior. It didn’t work. She just raised more questions.




While discussing the unmasking of Trump campaign personnel, President Barack Obama’s former national security adviser Susan Rice said she didn’t do anything wrong or “untoward” with intelligence.

Susan Rice no one believe you. You have been caught lying too many times.

A partial transcript is below.

Fareed Zakaria: “One of the elements of fallout from Russia’s attempt to influence the American election was that there was a certain amount of intelligence work being done on Russia.

Our intelligence agencies were listening to what Russian government officials or Russian intelligence officials were saying.

Donald Trump has accused you of trying to unmask the Americans on the other end of those conversations in an attempt to implicate the Trump campaign or people associated with Trump in some kind of collusion with Russia.

What is your reaction to that? It’s an extraordinary charge by the President of the United States.




Susan Rice: “Well Fareed, it’s absolutely false. I’ve addressed this previously. I think now we’ve had subsequently members of Congress on the intelligence committees on both sides of the aisle take a look at the information that apparently was the basis for Chairman Nunes’ concern and say publicly that they didn’t see anything that was unusual or untoward.

I did my job, which was to protect the American people, and I did it faithfully and with― to the best of my ability, and never did I do anything that was untoward with respect to the intelligence I received.”

There are many lies in this statement but none bigger than Rice’s claim she was doing her job. Democrats with gift government jobs don’t actually do them. That’s the whole point of them. Look, if Rice was doing her job Benghazi would never have happened. Period. End of story. Her job was and is to lie for Obama.


www.worldnewspolitics.com...

No wonder she was invited to testify.

She just goes around telling her side of the story to those that wants to listen but unofficially.

She is a joke.

Quite right, she tells the tale to all who will listen---until she's asked to tell it under oath. Then she disappears. I just hope they order her to give testimony before she disappears permanently.

No worries
I understand -- because I don't understand folks either!!!

Ha, ha, I play smart, I know how to go around venting frustration without getting in trouble, trust me some have tried to get me really upset with name calling, you have no idea.

I still don't get how Rice can go on the news media outlets to talk about the whole issue of the surveillance and what she knows about it, but can not do it under oath like diggindirt just posted.

I guess her job is just to spread the rumors but confess nothing.

Crazy, right? Just like the ranking Democrat claiming that her "presence" isn't "relevant" at the hearings! Of course it is!!! It's all about Rice and what she did and did not do. But like you've pointed out already, folks still jump on that bandwagon like it makes any sense whatsoever.


I guess her job is just to spread the rumors but confess nothing.


At this point, apparently, yes. Damage control -- but without admitting any damage under oath. And I guess they all know that pleading the 5th won't work under this president like it did with the last president.

Comey, NSA chief brief House panel amid Russia probe

House Intelligence Committee members emerged tight-lipped from a closed-door briefing with FBI Director James Comey and National Security Agency head Adm. Michael Rogers on Thursday.

Rep. Mike Conaway (R-Texas), who is leading the committee’s investigation into Russian interference in the election, appeared briefly alongside the committee's ranking member, Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) at the close of the meeting to characterize the meeting as valuable — but said little else.


In a joint statement issued after the hearing Thursday, Conaway and Schiff indicated that an open hearing with several high-ranking Obama officials — including former acting Attorney General Sally Yates — is still in the cards.

“We are currently sending out invitations for witnesses to testify and requests for pertinent documents, and look forward to the next steps of this investigation, including witness interviews and an open hearing with Sally Yates, [former Director of National Intelligence] James Clapper, and [former CIA Director] John Brennan,” the statement read.


Invitations? Requests??? Oh hell no!!!

When they start issuing subpoenas, then I'll believe their intentions are genuine. I don't care if they have an "R" or a "D" after their name, they need to put up or shut up. Now.

The Final Truth about the “Trump Dossier,” Part Three

Comey Tried to Shield the F.B.I. From Politics. Then He Shaped an Election.

His misgivings were only fueled by the discovery last year of a document written by a Democratic operative that seemed — at least in the eyes of Mr. Comey and his aides — to raise questions about her independence. In a bizarre example of how tangled the F.B.I. investigations had become, the document had been stolen by Russian hackers.

The examination also showed that at one point, President Obama himself was reluctant to disclose the suspected Russian influence in the election last summer, for fear his administration would be accused of meddling.


During Russia’s hacking campaign against the United States, intelligence agencies could peer, at times, into Russian networks and see what had been taken. Early last year, F.B.I. agents received a batch of hacked documents, and one caught their attention.

The document, which has been described as both a memo and an email, was written by a Democratic operative who expressed confidence that Ms. Lynch would keep the Clinton investigation from going too far, according to several former officials familiar with the document.

Read one way, it was standard Washington political chatter. Read another way, it suggested that a political operative might have insight into Ms. Lynch’s thinking.


Read the full testimony of FBI Director James Comey in which he discusses Clinton email investigation

GRASSLEY: Okay, moving on to another subject, the New York Times recently reported that the FBI had found a troubling email among the ones the Russians hacked from Democrat operatives. The email reportedly provided assurances that Attorney General Lynch would protect Secretary Clinton by making sure the FBI investigation “didn't go too far.” How, and when, did you first learn of this document? Also, who sent it and who received it?

COMEY: That's not a question I can answer in this forum, Mr. Chairman, because it would call for a classified response. I have briefed leadership of the intelligence committees on that particular issue, but I can't talk about it here.

GRASSLEY: You can expect me to follow up with you on that point.

COMEY: Sure.

GRASSLEY: What steps did the FBI take to determine whether Attorney General Lynch had actually given assurances that the political fix was in no matter what? Did the FBI interview the person who wrote the email? If not, why not?

COMEY: I have to give you the same answer. I can't talk about that in an unclassified setting.

GRASSLEY: Okay, then you can expect me to follow up on that. I asked the FBI to provide this email to the committee before today's hearing. Why haven't you done so and will you provide it by the end of this week?

COMEY: Again, to react to that, I have to give a classified answer and I can't give it sitting here.

GRASSLEY: So that means you can give me the email?

COMEY: I'm not confirming there was an email, sir. I can't — the subject is classified and in an appropriate forum I'd be happy to brief you on it. But I can't do it in an open hearing.

Oh my god, Hillary is paving her comeback to 2020 presidential race. Hillary to launch political group, "Onward together".

To fund her campaign, she will base her campaign on the Russian hacking and been robbed of the last elections.


“Onward Together”: Hillary Clinton reportedly looking to launch a new political group Despite her devastating loss to Donald Trump in the November election, Hillary Clinton apparently has no plans to give up on politics.


The former secretary of state is creating a new political group that will send money to organizations that are resisting President Trump’s agenda, according to a new Politico report. The group, expected to be called “Onward Together,” could launch as soon as next week.

Either that or she wants to fill up her coffers after losing billions on the last elections.

The woman doesn't get it.
