Susan Rice: 'I Leaked Nothing To Nobody'

"This is completely made up" 

At the beginning of the interview Susan Rice appears to overstate her importance as National Security Advisor for president Obama.... Here is how Andrew C McCarthy explains it at the National Review Online.
Understand: There would have been no intelligence need for Susan Rice to ask for identities to be unmasked. If there had been a real need to reveal the identities — an intelligence need based on American interests — the unmasking would have been done by the investigating agencies.

The national-security adviser is not an investigator. She is a White House staffer. The president’s staff is a consumer of intelligence, not a generator or collector of it. If Susan Rice was unmasking Americans, it was not to fulfill an intelligence need based on American interests; it was to fulfill a political desire based on Democratic-party interests.
Some of you may recollect how Susan Rice had to withdraw her nomination for the coveted post of Secretary of State, because, it was speculated, she could not gather enough confirmation votes, in the senate, given her history of half truths and obfuscation.

Also, leaking to the press is not the aggravating charge she is being accused of.... unmasking U.S. citizens is...

I zee nussing, I hear nussing, I know nussing.

Oh, yeah, Stevens, Smith, Woods, and Doherty must be having a ball.

And poor little Pissy is really wee-wee right about now.

Remember what everything he touched turned to? Could be that's also his legacy and his retirement.

Mooch may yet fulfill her dream of competing for Men's UFC Championship.

I'm not getting my hopes up for eventually learning the truth. I expect to see Larry, Curly and Mo chasing Groucho, Chico and Harpo around the room while waiting on Inspector Clouseau to solve the case.

We're doomed.

Shemp or Zeppo might offer a ray of hope but I doubt it.

She's a prime candidate for waterboarding.

But let me try to be helpful.

Start at the beginning. Who requested the surveillance?

Where's Ritmo?

This is all very stressful for our friend, Ritmo, I suspect he has retired to his boudoir with an economy size jar of marshmallow cream and a tablespoon.

And, until the morning of 11/9/16, everybody said the fix was in.

A couple of observations from our favorite guest sage, Don Surber:

First, the truth will out. Especially in the Internet Age.

Second, Trump makes sure that truth comes from the media.

It was the video. Total lie. This woman has zero credibility.

I hope you're right, ed.

The fact we know about this says a lot.

In the old days, stuff like this wasn't even reported.

She can say all she wants. She was on that computer in the white house, there is a log of her request. She used it to 'unmask' American citizens, in this case, the president and his staff. She is fucked and she knows it and that cock-gobbler Adam Schiff knows it, because he went there and he saw her name on it and then he shut the fuck up like a rat who just took hush money.

I hope Ms. Rice has a good lawyer because she took her order from Urkel himself and she is going to fall on his sword over it.

Homeland assumed Hillary would win and have a female President-elect. They were wrong. But, they have the intelligence community and a not so subtle Steve Bannon/Limbaugh composite character delegitimizing this woman Prez. It shows the mindset of Hollywood. Their own would NEVER use back channels to try to delegitimize someone!!
