Susan Rice Set To Face Capitol Hill Questions On Alleged Trump Team Unmasking


FOX NEWS - Susan Rice is expected to face tough questions Tuesday on Capitol Hill about whether she “unmasked” President Trump associates in Russian meddling probes 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.

Rice is expected to address such allegations when she gives closed-door testimony Tuesday before the Republican-led House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence.

The panel is leading one of several investigations into Russian meddling in the 2016 White House race, which have engulfed the Trump administration and evolved to include questions about whether anybody on Trump’s campaign team colluded with the Kremlin to defeat Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton. 

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?”

He also argued that Americans indeed deserve to know the truth about the Trump associates but they also want answers from high-ranking Obama administration officials who may have misled Americans on critical matters -- including Rice, as U.S. ambassador to the U.N., saying the fatal 2012 Benghazi terror attacks were largely “sparked” by an anti-Muslim video.

“The American people want to get the truth on all of these issues,” said Jordan. He also raised concerns about how Obama Attorney General Loretta Lynch handled the Clinton email investigation and whether James Comey exposed classified information in an apparent effort to retaliate against Trump firing him as FBI director.
