Susan Rice, the former security adviser to Obama, was supposed to testify before a House panel this week on her involvement in the unmasking of members of Trump’s transition team. That event was postponed for unknown reasons.
Now, we learn that she had a private meeting with Senate intel staffers. What’s going on?
FOX News reported:
Susan Rice meets with Senate Intel staff on Capitol Hill
Former national security adviser Susan Rice met privately Friday with Senate Intelligence Committee staffers, Fox News has learned – in one of several Capitol Hill sessions involving Obama administration officials.
A closed-door session with Rice had been expected earlier this week on the House side, but ended up being pushed off. It remains unclear whether Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Richard Burr, R-N.C., or any other senators were present for Friday’s meeting.
Some lawmakers have made clear they want to hear more from Obama administration officials, especially Rice, over their potential role in “unmasking” the identities of Trump associates from intelligence reports last year.
Rice has come under fire for her alleged role. Congressional investigators have issued subpoenas to the NSA, CIA and FBI seeking “unmasking” information related to three individuals: Rice, former CIA Director John Brennan and former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Samantha Power.
The American people deserve better than this. This investigation should be continued publicly, so everyone knows what actually happened.
