Susan Rice Denies Senate Request To Testify In Hearing On Russian Election Interference
Susan Rice has denied a request to testify in front a Senate judiciary subcommittee next week on Russian interference in the U.S. presidential election.
According to CNN, Barack Obama’s national security adviser turned down a request from Sen. Lindsey Graham to participate in the hearing.
“Senator Whitehouse has informed us by letter that he did not agree to Chairman Graham’s invitation to Ambassador Rice, a significant departure from the bipartisan invitations extended to other witnesses,” Rice’s lawyer Kathryn Ruemmler wrote in a letter to Graham. “Under these circumstances, Ambassador Rice respectfully declines Senator Graham’s invitation to testify.”
Rice was the administration official who made the dozens of requests seeking to unmask the identities of Trump associates, which she said were for national security reasons and not politically motivated.
Yeah... but I thought that the Russian interference in our national election and influence in Washington was THE top national security risk we faced as a nation??? I mean, the Dem's have spent months telling us that. Perhaps she is just saving it for a more appropriate time... like when Hillary's email stuff blows up again... dems always need a diversion.
Perhaps they have realized.... they just don't want us to go down that rabbit hole for fear of what we might find....
