Former National Security Advisor and Barack Obama operative Susan Rice has refused to testify before Congress about her role in the political unmasking of Donald Trump’s campaign staff. Now, “The Bulldog” Trey Gowdy (R-NC) has a brutal warning for her. You’ll be cheering as you watch Gowdy wipe the smug smirk off Rice’s face.
During a recent interview with Fox News Insider, Trey Gowdy laid out the facts for Rice, who has made it clear that she will not testify or help with the Senate Intelligence Committee’s investigation in any way. The mere fact that a former National Security Advisor will not cooperate in a federal investigation is very telling.
Susan Rice’s behavior has been indefensible, and it’s quite obvious that she was doing the bidding of Barack Obama. Rice knows that she has a lot to hide, and so does everyone else involved.
During the interview with Fox News Insider on May 4, 2017, Gowdy talked about Rice’s refusal to testify, saying, “She rejected an invitation. There are other ways to invite people other than via letter. There are things called subpoenas. You shouldn’t have to use them with a former National Security Advisor, but if you do, you do.” However, the Bulldog was just getting started with his warning for Rice.
“Susan Rice is also a very important witness. It may be that she concluded that public setting would not enable her to answer the questions that the Senators are going to have, which is why we’re going behind closed doors today. That’s where most of these interviews ought to take place given the subject matter. But, she’s a really important witness, and I’ll say this,” Gowdy said. “Members of Congress don’t pick the witnesses, lawyers don’t pick witnesses, the facts pick the witnesses, and whether Rice likes it or not, she’s a really important fact witness.”
President Donald Trump rightfully expressed his own frustration with Rice’s suspicious behavior in a recent tweet, and I couldn’t agree more with his point of view. “Susan Rice, the former National Security Advisor to President Obama, is refusing to testify before a Senate Subcommittee next week on allegations of unmasking Trump transition officials. Not good!” Trump wrote.
According to an earlier report by Breitbart, Trump made it clear that he thinks Rice is guilty of committing a crime. “I think it’s going to be the biggest story,” President Trump told the New York Times. “It’s such an important story for our country and the world. It is one of the big stories of our time.”
It is time for the Department of Justice to put the hammer down on the Obama administration for a laundry list of wrongdoing. The greatest evidence President Trump can give American patriots, proving that we are once again a nation of laws, is bringing the corrupt Washington, D.C., elites to justice. Rice would be a good start, and I genuinely believe Gowdy wants to see her prosecuted for her crimes.
It will be interesting to see what information is leaked from the Senate’s closed-door meeting. Perhaps we won’t have to wait that long for Susan Rice to pay for her crimes and permanently lose that smirk she wears so arrogantly.
