With the release of personal emails sent to herself, Susan Rice showed in the last hours of the Obama administration they were actively involved in setting up and wiretapping Gen. Flynn. Here is the problem, a three-year-old interview clip of former National Security Adviser Susan Rice resurfaced Tuesday after the declassified email she sent to herself on the final day of the Obama administration was released.
During an April 2017 appearance on PBS News Hour, Rice was asked about the then-breaking revelations about members of President Trump’s transition team having been surveilled before he took office.
“In the last few hours, we’ve been following a disclosure by the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, Devin Nunes, that in essence, during the final days of the Obama administration, during the transition after President Trump had been elected, that he and the people around him may have been caught up in surveillance of foreign individuals and their identities may have been disclosed. Do you know anything about this?” PBS anchor Judy Woodruff asked.
“I know nothing about this,” Rice said at the time. “I was surprised to see reports from Chairman Nunes on that count today.”
Rice then pivoted to Trump’s accusation that then-President Barack Obama had “wiretapped” him during the 2016 election, insisting that “nothing of the sort occurred.” She insisted that “no president, no White House can order the surveillance of another American citizen. That can only come from the Justice Department with the approval of a FISA court.”
She later stressed that Nunes’ assertion at the time was that the surveillance was “legal and lawful” and that it was a “potentially incidental collection.”
“That means that the target was either a foreign entity or somebody under criminal investigation and that the Americans who were talking to those targets may have been picked up,” Rice explained.
What we seem to have here is another Benghazi massive twisting of the truth by Rice, the same thing she did in the past. In the past, we saw the Obama administration send her out to spread massive propaganda to cover their tracks, lying her head off about what had happened, thus leading the American public astray.
The email, which was written on Jan. 20, 2017, documented a Jan. 5 Oval Office meeting with then-President Obama and others. He guided on how law enforcement needed to investigate Russian interference in the 2016 presidential race. Parts of it were released previously, but the section on then-FBI Director James Comey’s response had been classified as “TOP SECRET” until now.
Comey suggested to Obama that the National Security Council (N.S.C.) might not want to pass “sensitive information related to Russia” to Flynn, according to a newly declassified email that Flynn’s predecessor sent herself on Inauguration Day.
The section showed that Comey affirmed to Obama he was proceeding “by the book,” and went on to discuss concerns about Flynn’s known conversations with Russia’s ambassador at the time — conversations that would play a role later in the criminal case against Flynn. However, arguments could be made this was more C.Y.A. then anything else, it was written after the fact, Rice most likely wanted this down to cover for herself.
Rice continued in her email: “From a national security perspective, Comey said he does have some concerns that incoming N.S.A. Flynn is frequently speaking with Russian Ambassador [Sergey] Kislyak. Comey said that could be an issue as it relates to sharing sensitive information. President Obama asked if Comey was saying that the N.S.C. should not pass sensitive information related to Russia to Flynn.”
Rice then wrote: “Comey replied, ‘potentially.’ He added that he has no indication thus far that Flynn has passed classified information to Kislyak, but he noted that ‘the level of communication is unusual.'”
As I wrote in The House Of Cards Is Falling, we are starting to see the lower people turning on each other, players like Rice was too smart to get caught up in this by herself, that is why she left these e-mails. But we had seen from her that she lied her head off with the press, like she did when she circulated the liberal media, told them she saw evidence of Trump collusion, then when questioned by Congress under oath admitted that she saw nothing.
I thought the mass arrests were going to start this week, but the declassification of the Flynn investigation is blowing this even more open then it is already, this may put this action back by a couple of weeks, but it will happen. What we are seeing now is the rounding up of players, Barr making statements to keep the big players thinking they are safe, but is continuing to shore up the investigation into what may the only coup d’etat against a sitting president in our history.
