When the MSNBC anchor pressed the former national security adviser over whether she spied on the Trump transition team and unmasked their names for political purposes, Rice said surveillance was well within her job description.
Not because it reveals Susan "Benghazi was about a video" Rice to be a liar.
During a Tuesday interview with MSNBC's Andrea Mitchell, Rice admitted to participating in the unmasking of USA citizens, the communications of whom is sometimes incidentally collected during the intelligence community's surveillance of foreign nationals. She said, however, that "I don't have a particular recollection of doing that more frequently after the election".
Monday's blockbuster revelation, confirmed by multiple sources, that former national security adviser Susan Rice was responsible for the "unmasking" of individuals caught by USA surveillance of foreign nationals has drawn a strong reaction from Republicans...but crickets from the liberal media. 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.
"President Trump's been given an opportunity here to set a precedent and stop this". Although there is still no proof that the president was subject to a wiretap or any sort of direct surveillance.
Civil rights groups alarmed over retreat on police reforms
In New Orleans, the man appointed to oversee the reforms of that city's police department said the agreement there still stands. Would Baltimore be in a position to be able to afford a consent decree?
Still, Republicans - seizing an opportunity to shift public attention from whether Trump advisers colluded with Russian officials - want more information and may call Rice to testify. We'll take this as confirmation that President Obama's confidante was receiving summaries of surveilled foreign officials that included references to, or conversations with, Donald Trump's team.
Some reports said that Rice did request a review and receive names, but she adamantly denied leaking any names, saying that this would have constituted releasing classified information.
You got fresh evidence of that Monday, with news that then-National Security Adviser Susan Rice was behind the "unmasking" of Trumpites in transcripts of calls with Russian officials. "It is involved with the whole question of the Russian investigation of the response by President Trump and now these allegations against you".
"This is important. The notion that which some people are trying to suggest that by asking for the identity of an American person, that is the same as leaking it is completely false", Rice continued.
Likely being the operative word.
Staley proud to be 2nd African-American coach to win title
Jimenez looked as if he was going to win relatively easily on Sunday, with a two-shot lead going into Number 18 at Fallen Oak. Never greater than on Sunday, when the program beat Mississippi State , 67-55, to win the program's first national title.
"Absolutely not for any political purposes, to spy, expose, anything", she added. No longer are the Democrats in the White House to cover for this shadowy figure.
It was only two weeks ago that Susan Rice appeared to deny any involvement in or knowledge of unmasking of USA citizen.
"Every presidential administration from FDR through Nixon, the administration in power used intelligence agencies to engage in political espionage", the Utah Republican told Cuomo Wednesday on "New Day". In other words, his silence speaks volumes to back up Nunes, Housley, and now Eli Lake.
But now the administration has concocted a third justification that is far more insidious because it migrates from the realm of fantastical conspiracy theories to something more complex, facially plausible, and contiguous with Trump's stated goal: to shift public scrutiny away from his campaign's complicity in Russian election interference, and toward his unsubstantiated counterclaim that the Russia story is fake and driven by illegal, selective, and politically motivated leaking of classified intelligence. This was done exclusively for political purposes.
Derrick Rose to have knee surgery again, miss rest of season
The Knicks had not ruled out re-signing Rose, but another injury means the 28-year-old will find a tough free-agent market. The inability to stay healthy forced the Bulls to deal Rose to the Knicks during the 2016 draft.
