Rand Paul: Rice Should Testify Under Oath If Obama Ordered Her To "Unmask" Trump Team

After it emerged courtesy of Mike Cernovich that former National Security Advisor Susan Rice had made numerous requests to “unmask” the identities of Americans associated with President Trump in intelligence reports, senator Rand Paul who in recent days has been on increasingly better terms with the president and even went golfing with him this weekend, said Rice should testify under oath about her involvment in a potentially illegal scandal that she herself denied she had any knowledge of as recently as 2 weeks ago.

The Kentucky senator called the unmasking an “enormous deal” and indicated that it should be illegal.

“I think she should be asked under oath, did she reveal it to The Washington Post. I think they were illegally basically using an espionage tool to eavesdrop or wiretap — if you want to use the word generally — on the Trump campaign,” Paul said.
The report about Rice is linked to Devin Nunes’s claim that the Trump transition team was "accidentally surveilled" and associated information was widely disseminated in intelligence community reports.

Nunes made the claim nearly two weeks ago, infuriating his Democratic colleagues by briefing the media and Trump on the information before revealing it to his committee. Nunes said he was particularly concerned with the possibility that Trump associates were “unmasked” in the intelligence reports. Nunes revealed the information weeks after Trump accused Obama of having his “wires tapped” at Trump Tower ahead of the presidential election.

Testifying that the previous POSPOTUS directed her activities - puts the turd in the crosshairs for constitutional and civil rights violations charges!

I would really like to see this turd jailed for what he and his cronies did to this country!

She's going to testify in front of congress. Trey Gowdy will grill her. She'll take the 5th, then everybody goes on their merry way and nobody goes to prison. Sound about right?

immunity or better yet a pardon could probably be in play. We cannot have witch trials in our nation - regardless of the hatred of the past OR current administration.

If Obama didn't order her actions then Valerie Jarrett did so don't leave out this key component.

It will never happen. Rice is protected by Obama and the media and that combination can do whatever it wants.

She's a congenital liar who worked directly for a congenital liar. Expecting truth from her is a fantasy.
