Trey Gowdy may Force Susan Rice to Admit Russian Conspiracy Complete BS
Ever since Hillary’s electoral beat down by Trump, Democrats have polluted the airwaves with accusations of Russia-Trump collusion.
Now that Congress uncovered the Obama staffer at the center of the controversy, she refuses to shed any light on what she discovered.
Is Susan Rice’s refusal to testify before Congress a basic admission that there’s nothing to say? That there was, in fact, zero collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian operatives?
Senate Democrats would certainly agree with that conclusion. The CIA recently briefed some Intelligence Committee members on possible Russian interference. In that briefing, even Left Coast Democrat Dianne Feinstein admitted on CNN that there is no evidence that anyone from the Trump campaign colluded with Russia during the 2016 presidential election campaign.
Her precise response when asked was, “Not at this time.”
Or at any other time.
But while we are on the subject, Susan Rice can help us with the timelines on many issues, given her role in the Obama administration. I remind you that Obama claims to have the most transparent administration in modern history. Thus, nobody should be surprised that Rice won’t testify.
Those screaming the opposite should not stand mute on this point since their own party admits there’s nothing to report. But reading between the lines, Democrats like Feinstein apparently still hold out hope that at some future date, there might be evidence.
How else could they explain Hillary’s loss?
Democrats clamored to get to bottom of Russia story for months. And at the first bipartisan opportunity to uncover the truth, Susan Rice goes into witness protection.
What gives? I thought Dems wanted to get to the bottom of this issue, for the good of the Republic?
Sen. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) has a solution.
In an interview with Fox News this week, Gowdy called the Left’s bluff on their stalwart defense of a conspiracy theory that to date has produced no evidence.
He’s going to subpoena Obama’s former national security advisor to testify about unmasking former Trump campaign officials.
Fox News’ Bill Hemmer asked Gowdy:
“She has rejected the invitation to appear publically on Monday. What do you make of her case? Susan Rice?”
From his response, you can tell, Gowdy’s not worried.
“Well, a couple of things there. She rejected an invitation. There are others 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.”
Republicans asked Rice to appear before Congress when she was exposed for “unmasking” several U.S. citizens in intelligence reports connected to Trump’s campaign and transition. She needs to explain these actions in investigating an opposing party’s candidate during an election campaign.
Doubling down on how central Susan Rice is to getting answers for the American people, Gowdy elaborated:
“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.”
He added that Rice is at the center of the Senate investigation.
“And I’ll say this, Bill. Members of Congress don’t pick the witnesses. Lawyers don’t pick the witnesses. The facts pick the witnesses. And whether Susan Rice likes it or not, she’s a really important fact witness.”
One way or another, Gowdy will force Dems to either show proof that their continued accusations against the Trump campaign are true.
Or, they will finally admit their Russian collusion narrative is complete and utter nonsense.
The CIA’s confirmation that no evidence exists, makes this a preposterous and dangerous conspiracy theory that the Dems need to let go of and move on.
Will Gowdy’s subpoena finally bring this dinner theatre to an end? One can only hope.
