Do Not Trust Susan Rice, Verify Everything 7 Times!

Susan Rice Is Getting 

Fried By Senate Republicans

Republican leaders are calling on Obama’s former National Security Advisor, 
Susan Rice, to testify in front of Congress—amid allegations that she
 “unmasked” the names of Trump aides in U.S. surveillance documents.

Rand Paul, on MSNBC’s Morning Joe, fumed about how an Obama official 
could so easily use intelligence for political purposes--and said that Rice 
should be under subpoena.

“For years, both progressives and libertarians have been complaining about 
these backdoor searches,” Paul explained. “It’s not that we’re searching maybe
 one foreign leader and who they talk to; we search everything in the whole 
world. There were reports a couple of years ago that all of Italy’s phone calls 
were absorbed in a one month period of time. We were getting Merkel’s phone 
calls; we were getting everybody’s phone calls. But by rebound we are 
collecting millions of Americans phone calls. If you want to look at an
 American’s phone call or listen to it, you should have to have a warrant, 
the old fashioned way in a real court where both sides get represented.”

“…[B]oth myself and [Democratic Senator] Ron Wyden have been warning 
about these back door searches for years and that they could be politicized,” 
Paul added. “The facts will come out with Susan Rice. But I think she ought to
 be under subpoena. She should be asked did you talk to the president about it?
 Did President Obama know about this?

Paul also vindicated President Donald Trump’s controversial tweet from early
 last month, when he accused Obama of “wiretapping” Trump Tower: "So this 
is actually, eerily similar to what Trump accused them of which is eavesdropping
 on conversations for political reasons.”

Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina took a similar stance on Fox News.

“I'm not going to prejudge here, but I think every American should know whether
 or not the national security adviser to President Obama was involved in
 unmasking Trump transition figures for political purposes,” Graham said. 
“It should be easy to figure out, and we will.”
Perhaps thinking of Rice’s widely-criticized lies about Benghazi just days
 after the attack, Graham added: "When it comes to Susan Rice, you need 
to verify, not trust.”

Senator Tom Cotton of Arkansas said similar things, during an interview with
 radio host Hugh Hewitt:

"Our intelligence surveillance activities are obviously very controversial," Cotton 
told Hewitt. "They’ve been more so over the last four years since the Edward 
Snowden disclosures. The last thing we need are political operatives in the
 White House fooling around with intelligence to make it harder to pass the laws
 we need to keep America safe.”

Despite the heavy criticism from Republican leaders, Rice continues to deny
 that she did anything wrong—and the liberal mainstream media continues to 
dismiss the story as partisan spin.
