Susan Rice Refuses Senate Request To Testify On Russian Hacking Allegations

Tyler Durden's picture

Susan Rice, President Barack Obama's former national security adviser, on Wednesday declined Senator Lindsey Graham's request to participate in a judiciary subcommittee hearing next week on Russian interference in the US election.

A letter obtained by CNN from Rice's lawyer, Kathryn Ruemmler of Latham Watkins, outlines the grounds for her decision not to appear which includes, among other things, a lack of sufficient notice and a lack of bipartisan support for her presence at the committee's hearing.

"Moreover, Chairman Graham's invitation was extended only after the hearing was noticed, less than two weeks before the hearing was scheduled to occur, and without consultation with Ambassador Rice, a professional courtesy that would customarily be extended to any witness.  Notwithstanding the significance of these concerns, Ambassador Rice is prepared to assist Congressional inquiries into Russian election interference because of the important national interests at stake, provided they are conducted in a bipartisan manner, and as appropriate, in a classified session."


"In this case, however, Senator Whitehouse has informed us by letter that he did not agree to Chairman Graham's invitation to Ambassador Rice, a significant departure from the bipartisan invitations extended to other witnesses.  Under these circumstances, Ambassador Rice respectfully declines Senator Graham's invitation to testify."

Susan Rice


Sure, Susan, you're not willing to testify because of a breach of protocol on the part of Lindsey Graham and because a member of the Democratic party, Senator Sheldon Whitehouse, is inexplicably obstructing you from providing critical evidence which may support your claims that Russia intentionally interfered in an election process that cost your own party the White House.  That makes a ton of sense....almost as much as that time you did a Sunday morning media tour telling the country that the Benghazi attack was related to a youtube video all so that Obama could get re-elected just two months later.

And while we would hate to be labelled as overly cynical, we do wonder whether your decision was, in some small way, influenced by a desire to avoid answering questions about the recent discovery that you were the official responsible for the 'unmasking' of various incoming Trump officials who were 'incidentally' surveilled during the 2016 campaign...a fact that was apparently only discovered after the White House Counsel's office reviewed your document log requests.

Hmmm, that's a tough one...

But they didn't have any criminal intent so they will skate like Hillary and the rest of the Satanic Pedophiles.

Slowly but surely they fall, They needed Clinton to win to cover up their crimes, now they are using up every friend they have, but as the influence they had Disappears, some one will start pionting out the corrupt Politicians/ companies/ etc..

This is already happening with Books being published(Shattered), these would have had the writers in Prison under Obama and a Clinton Presidency

Maybe Susan needs something stronger than a fkg invitation. RSVP not an option.

She can bring copies of her personalized spreadsheets to refer to when she is COMPELLED to appear by subpoena! ;-)

"Obstruction of Justice"?

Obstruction by just Rice?

I wonder if I can "decline and invitation" to be audited by the IRS?

Got The Wrong No's picture

You can, but then they would make up some shit and put a hold on your accounts and lien any property you own. Ooops, I was wrong. You can't. 

. . . _ _ _ . . .'s picture

Declining an invite by the IRS would be the same as inviting them over to your house.

Seen this one Chupacbra 322?

Of course with the counterfeiting of the continental dollar, it too, the constitution, is based on what one could reasonably call FRAUD. (THE SUPPOSED DEBT)

Then of course there is the crimes 0f 1871 and BEFORE...that you speak of.

A Timeline of the Great Fraud - This view on events here in America deserve SERIOUS review.

On the "LOST" 13th Amendment that just happened to be around the time of Chaos of the Civil War.

Mandella/Mandela Effect and the 13th Titles of Nobility Amendment - This is astonishing

Here is one I just came across yesterday...yes...more crimes. Big Ones.

What to do at this point? Restore Dejure Government. Convene local, county, state and national assemblies. Appoint peace officers, and other necessary public offices - officers.

Convene Grand Juries. Crowd Source Evidence. Review Injuries in order of's a LONG list folks. Restore Justice. Recontract services corps or not, it did not go well, did it?

In this country, we have two kinds of government.  We have the de facto government --- Federal/Territorial/Municipal ---- that is hired to provide stipulated services.  We have the de jure government which, if we have a brain in our heads, we serve and cherish as our means to direct and control the de facto.  That’s the way it is and the only other option is insurrection...

They're all involved in an elaborate scheme based on contrat law & Criminal deceit to Fraud The American People by CONSENT (Black Law's Dictionary) & being an accessory to the deceit & Criminal Fraud by contracting with the Criminal State.

We are "Governed" into a Political, Educational, Religious & Economic UNITED STATES, CORP based on contract law which is based on Criminal Fraud, deceit & illusion.

The Private Corp UNITED STATES, CORP uses the cover of being a functional Government when in reality they are not. Much like the Criminal Federal Reserve uses The "Federal" in their name & use it as cover to give the illusion that they are a branch of the US Government when they are not.

Through bankruptcies, Criminal Contract Fraud & deceit the Charlatans have incrementally incorporated the US as well as your souls (birth cert) which are securitized via the Criminal Federal Reserve through to the IMF.

They're functioning off corporate version of the THE CONSTITUTION. It's the reason why The Global Criminal Oligarch Cabal Bankster Intelligence Crime Syndicate continues to lie, cheat, deceit, rape & pillage with impunity.

The only power the have over you is with CONSENT (Black Law's Dictionary). Pay no Taxes. Peaceful Non-Participation, Non-Compliance & being an accessory into their Criminal system/s based on Criminal Fraud, Debt Bondage & Enslavement.

Look. It's there parchment! There's 2 Constitutions, one from 1776, one from the Act of 1871. One says for the united states. The other says OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, INC.

They removed the organic language from the 13th Amendment of 1776 which Gaurenteed our individual rights and replaced the whole amendment in the forgery look alike.

Please tell me your aware of this? Search Trading with the Enemy Act also. That proves we lost the Constitution a long time ago, we practice commerce, that's it.

Exactly D Nyle...the reason they are distracting averyone about Trump and why they are obstructing everything he is trying to do is becasue they are trying to take up his time and resources and keep them from being directed at the investigations that need to be done.  They are fucked.  He's only 100 days in.  I can't wait until Colbert's mouth becomes a cock holder for Schumer's schlong in the big house.  At some point soon I think Pelosi, Waters and Ginsberg are all going to be sent to a memory care facility that serves unlimited house white wine.

WTF dude?! Sub110?

You mean sub 85....But because she looks slightly mixed, I would say 90.

Affirmative action is wondrous. Top that kind of stupid with lawless and arrogant and you have a hopeless toxic brew

It sure is and I'm sure Trump has the goods on all these clowns. They didn't have time to cover their asses after Hilly's unexpected loss. Now they are shitting themselves. I wonder if Trump has Weiner's laptop info. He is from NYC and probably knows a few honest cops w access to such information

lew1024's picture

Much time has gone past since Trump assumed the Presidency.

What has changed? Has anyone been prosecuted for anything?  Except, of course, cannabis smokers, drug users, lower level types here and there.

Pedophiles?  That is all BS propaganda,

I don't have much hope for Trump as a 'drain the swamp' kind of guy.
