Senate Intelligence Committee to Investigate Susan Rice

Yesterday Sen. Rand Paul was among several lawmakers calling for a formal investigation into Susan Rice and the unmasking of surveillance of the Trump campaign.

And it’s now become a reality. Today Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has tasked the Senate Intelligence Committee with a formal investigation.

Which means Susan Rice will be subpoenaed to testify on her justification for ordering intelligence spreadsheets on Trump.

Since she’s already lied about it on national television, we’ll watch her try to untwist the pretzel of misinformation in front of Congress.

Here’s more from Breitbart…

Tuesday on Fox News Channel’s “The First 100 Days,” Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) told fill-in host Dana Perino that he backed the Senate Intelligence Committee conducting a query headed by Sens. Richard Burr (R-NC) and Mark Warner (D-VA) into former National Security Adviser Susan Rice’s handling of raw intelligence.

Rice in recent days has been in the spotlight amid reports she ordered the unmasking of American citizens’ identities in surveillance collected while she was the NSA. McConnell said it was his hope the Senate Intelligence Committee could make findings and offer a report created on a bipartisan basis.

“I have asked the Intelligence Committee, Sen. Burr, Sen. Warner, to conduct a bipartisan investigation of this whole episode,” McConnell said. “They will conduct it and hopefully, in the end, we will find out what happened, and they will issue a report, I hope on a bipartisan basis. Anything related to Susan Rice or any of these other suggestions will be handled by the Intelligence Committee, and we look forward to receiving their report about what happened.”
