This week, Barack Obama’s former national security advisor Susan Rice was exposed as the person who requested the “unmasking” of Trump’s associates on raw intelligence reports. Now, things have gotten even worse for her, as Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., just went on live television to demand that she testify before Congress.
“I believe Susan Rice abused this system and she did it for political purposes,” Paul said on Morning Joe, according to Daily Mail. “She needs to be brought in and questioned under oath.”
Paul added that Rice needs to be asked if Obama ordered these names unmasked and whether he knew about it.
“This is a big deal,” the Kentucky Republican said. “If the outgoing administration was actually, literally sifting through things and part of the administration already said we were going to scatter, we were going to get as much information, we were going to scatter it out there publicly to try and harm the Trump administration.”
“This was a witch hunt that began with the Obama administration,” Paul continued. “Sour grapes on the way out the door. They were going to use the intelligence apparatus to attack Trump and I think they did.”
This came after U.S. Attorney Joseph diGenova confirmed that Rice had asked U.S. spy agencies for “detailed spreadsheets,” of legal phone calls involving Trump and his aides during the presidential campaign.
“What was produced by the intelligence community at the request of Ms. Rice were detailed spreadsheets of intercepted phone calls with unmasked Trump associates in perfectly legal conversations with individuals,” diGenova said.
