During her Tuesday interview with MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell, former National Security Advisor Susan Rice for the first time admitted to unmasking “U.S. persons” included in intelligence reports.
The intelligence community sometimes incidentally collects the communications of U.S. citizens in its surveillance of foreigners, but those names are redacted when they are reported to White House officials. Rice told Mitchell that at times it was necessary for her to ask the intelligence agencies for the names of those U.S. citizens to determine the potential threat to national security.
“When the intelligence community would respond to a request from a senior national security official for the identity of an American, that would come back only to the person who requested it,” she first said in response to a question from Mitchell. “It would brought back to them directly… To me or whoever might have requested it.”
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.

The problem for Susan Rice is that she is a known liar and has admitted it. She had no problem lying to Americans about Benghazi, she will have no problem lying to save her pimp Barry.

I hope she testifies in public and tells all about how the Russians funneled money into the trump election, and unmasks all the right-wingers involved

So, the only thing she denies is leaking!
With her track record on Benghazi, she needs to be sworn in.

Susan Rice was very careful to say that SHE did not leak. She passed the raw intelligence along to someone else to leak for the Administration.
