Former Obama Administration National Security Adviser Susan Rice Declines to Testify Before Senate Subcommittee
OF COURSE SUSAN RICE HAD NO PROBLEM GOING ON CNN AND DISCUSSING THE ISSUES …
As reported at Politico, Former Obama administration National Security Adviser Susan Rice on Wednesday declined a request to testify next week before a Senate subcommittee, citing separation of powers between the executive and legislative branches and the fact that the invitation was not bipartisan. SERIOUSLY? If the allegation is that somehow Obama administration officials utilized intelligence for political purposes is absolutely false, then why is former Obama administration National Security Adviser Susan Rice ducking the U.S. Senate subcommittee? Me thinks you have much to hide. Honestly, how does Susan Rice think that declining the request to testify on Russian hacking not make her look guilty as sin? So much for the most transparent administration ever.
Former Obama administration National Security Adviser Susan Rice on Wednesday declined a request to testify next week before a Senate subcommittee, citing separation of powers between the executive and legislative branches and the fact that the invitation was not bipartisan.
Rice’s decision to decline the invitation to testify on Russia’s election meddling came in a letter from her lawyer, Kathryn Ruemmler, to the leaders of the Senate Judiciary Subcommittee on Crime and Terrorism, Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) and Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.).
The letter, first reported by CNN, notes that the invitation to testify came only from Graham and that Whitehouse “has informed us by letter that he did not agree to” the request, which Ruemmler calls “a significant departure from the bipartisan invitations extended to other witnesses.”
“Moreover,” Ruemmler writes, “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 Judiciary subcommittee is holding a hearing next Monday that will feature testimony from former acting Attorney General Sally Yates and former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper.
Former Obama Administration National Security Adviser Susan Rice had no prob;em going on the lap dog media to discuss the issues but then declines to testify for a Senate subcommittee on Russian hacking. Watch the video below of the liberal MSM trying to defend the unmasking of names. So it is ok to go on the friendly bias MSM, but hell no to Senate where she would be sworn in.
Flashback: Obama Mocks Trump For Suggesting He Can Bring Jobs Back … Guess What 235,000 Jobs Created in First Month of Trump Presidency
REMEMBER WHEN THIS FOOLISH PRESIDENT MOCKED TRUMP ABOUT CREATING JOBS?
Remember during the 2016 presidential campaign when Barack Obama mocked candidate Donald Trump for his ability to bring jobs back and create them. Like everything during the Obama years, it was all one big joke, made by Obama who could have cared less to have America employed or help the hard working men and women of America find a good paying job. Obama mocked Trump by saying, did he have a magic wand. Hmm, I guess Trump did have a magic wand and an answer. You Obama, had none.
Take a look at the ADP jobs numbers for February where 295,000 were created and the government jobs number of 235,000 jobs created. It would appear that President Trump knows exactly what he is doing and Obama did not have a clue. Obama wanted America to get used to no jobs growth stating that’s just the way it is and President Trump wants to Make America Great Again!!!
Mark Levin: “The Question is: Was Obama Surveilling Top Trump Campaign Officials During the Election?” (Audio)
IF THE MSM MEDIA WANTS THEIR WATERGATE, THEY NEED TO INVESTIGATE THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION …
During Conservative talk show radio host Mark Levin’s show he stated the following as Democrats, the LEFT, the MSM and weak kneed Republicans went after ridiculous charges against AG Jeff Sessions,“There’s a much bigger scandal here: We have a prior administration. Barack Obama and his surrogates, who are supporting Hillary Clinton and her party, the Democratic Party. Who were using the… intelligence activities to surveil members of the Trump campaign, and to put that information out in the public.”
Thus we had a sitting president going after a political enemy using the FISA court and the powers fo the federal government. The below is a must listen to audio tape. Please inform yourself and do so. As Instapundit opines, I THINK TRUMP NEEDS TO APPOINT A SPECIAL PROSECUTOR TO INVESTIGATE. THIS IS A VERY SERIOUS CHARGE. Mark Levin: Was Obama Using NSA Against Trump During 2016 Campaign? LBJ used government resources to spy on opponents. Why should we think Obama wouldn’t?
About Obama’s efforts against Trump: “There’s a much bigger scandal here: We have a prior administration. Barack Obama and his surrogates, who are supporting Hillary Clinton and her party, the Democratic Party. Who were using the… intelligence activities to surveil members of the Trump campaign, and to put that information out in the public. Those are police state tactics. Nothing Flynn or Sessions has done is even in the same category as that,” Levin said.
“The question is: Was Obama surveilling top Trump campaign officials during the election?” he asked.
“We absolutely know this is true, the FBI did a preliminary criminal investigation based on a potential connection between a server in Trump Tower and a couple of Russian banks. That turned out to be a dry hole, but one of the most outrageous things I’ve ever seen… totally uncovered by the media. Instead of closing the investigation, the Obama administration tried to turn it into a FISA court investigation in June . Apparently the first application they submitted named Trump.”
“Even the FISA court said no. There wasn’t enough evidence to make out probable cause involving Donald Trump,” he said. “In the middle of the campaign the administration was actively having Trump investigated.”
The MSM continually wants their WATERGATE, yet they only want it if it is the GOP that is being investigated. NOTE TO MSM … INVESTIGATE OBAMA AND YOU WILL HAVE YOUR WATERGATE!!!
If the reports are true — and they certainly appear to be — Obamagate is 100 times bigger than Watergate.
In short, a sitting president wiretapped the nominee of the opposition party, before the election, using the security apparatus of the federal government.
WHAT A SURPRISE, WHAT ELSE WOULD A COMMUNITY AGITATOR DO WHO CARES MORE ABOUT HIS LEGACY THAN THE US?
In an interview with Fox & Friends released Monday night, President Donald Trump accused former President Barack Obama of being behind and responsible for some of the recent protests against him and Republicans. President Trump responded when asked whether Obama was responsible for organizing some of the recent political protests against him and other Republicans … “No, I think he is behind it. I also think it’s politics — that’s the way it is.” Would it really come as a surprise that behind the scenes Obama made every effort to derail the Trump presidency so to maintain any type of legacy? This is what Obama is, a community agitator.
So much for the peaceful transition of power and a former president giving the current one a chance to govern
President Donald Trump delivered a scathing accusation against former President Barack Obama in an interview released Monday night.
Trump was asked whether Obama was responsible for organizing some of the recent political protests against him and other Republicans — including the widely publicized demonstrations at GOP town-hall meetings.
“No, I think he is behind it,” Trump said in a preview of an interview with “Fox and Friends” released Monday night. “I also think it’s politics — that’s the way it is.”
“You never know what’s exactly happening behind the scenes,” Trump said. “You never know.”
Here is more of Trump’s quote on the question of protesters gathering around the US:
“No, I think that President Obama’s behind it because his people are certainly behind it. And some of the leaks … possibly come from that group … But I also understand that’s politics, and in terms of him being behind things, that’s politics, and it will probably continue.”
GOING, DOING, GONE!!!
It’s the moment many of us have been waiting for 8 years … the long national nightmare is over, Happy Days are Here Again!!! Barack and Michelle Obama depart Washington, DC on
Marine One Executive One.
