Susan Rice Un-Commits to Testifying on Unmasking Before Congress

Remember a few weeks back when Susan Rice was caught lying about unmasking Trump campaign officials after the ‘inadvertent tapping of communications’?

Yep, she got caught, but she promised that she totally would absolutely cooperate with congressional investigations into the leaking of Trump officials.

Well, that was then and this is now.

When rubber finally met the road and testimony began to near, Rice has had a change of mind.

In typical leftist fashion, she’s blaming racism and sexism (hello, Hillary) for her concerns of an unfair hearing in Congress.

Because of course it has absolutely nothing to do with the fact that she’s entirely guilty of felonious behavior at the behest of her boss, Barack H. Obama.

Here’s more from Redstate…

Back in late June, Susan Rice was all “Sure I want to help the Committee out.”

The House intelligence committee plans to interview Susan Rice next month as part of its investigation into Russia meddling in the US election last year, a high-profile target for Republicans who accuse President Barack Obama’s former national security adviser of improperly handling classified intelligence reports, according to sources familiar with the private talks.

“Ambassador Rice is cooperating with bipartisan Russia investigations conducted by the Intelligence Committees as she said she would,” said Erin Pelton, a spokesperson for Rice, who served as national security adviser and the US ambassador to the United Nations under Obama.

But not now.

Susan Rice is no longer expected to visit Capitol Hill on Tuesday for a meeting with the House committee probing allegations she “unmasked” President Trump associates in Russian meddling probes.

Rice had been expected to face tough questions on her role in the matter while serving as then-President Barack Obama’s national security adviser. Trump alleges Rice may have committed a crime by asking government analysts to disclose the names of his associates documented in intelligence reports.

Ohio GOP Rep. Jim Jordan last week told Fox News that he wants Rice to answer the basic question: “Did you unmask the names and if so why?

This is not unexpected. She’s recently been hinting that racism and sexism are the reasons, not the fact that she was National Security Adviser (btw, anyone who has qualms about Jared and Ivanka advising the president should ask themselves if they were scared witless by the thought of Susan Rice running the nation’s national security apparatus. If the answer is “no” then you have no reason to complain about any staffing decision by anyone) and there was an audit trail of her requesting identities to be unmasked. I suspect that the Obama loyalists who remain on the NSC, as they are career federal employees, have probably kept her and her minion, Ben Rhodes, up to date on the unmasking inquiry taking place inside the executive branch and she knows her interests will not be served by testifying.
