Susan Rice Changes Her Story

Sep 15, 2017

Former National Security Adviser Susan Rice “admitted to lawmakers last week that she unmasked Trump transition team officials.” This comes months after she told PBS Newshour that she knew “nothing about” unmasking. During a meeting with the House Intelligence Committee, she requested the unmasking because she needed “to understand why the Emrati crown prince was visiting New York late last year.” “She said the Obama administration ‘felt misled’ by the United Arab emirates, who had not mentioned that the crown price was visiting the country.” An unidentified UAE representative disputed Susan Rice’s account of misleading the Obama administration. Instead calling it “an effort to build a relationship with senior members of the Trump team who would be working in the administration.” The admission by Rice is evidence that “Trump transition team members were indeed caught up in surveillance of a foreign target.”
