Shock: Susan Rice Admits to Congress She Unmasked Trump Campaign Figures, Despite Having Previously Claimed "I Know Nothing About That"

But she says that she didn't do it for political reasons, and she didn't leak it.

No, she just unmasked them so that their names could be spread around (thanks to Obama's last-weeks change of rules to permit more spreading of sensitive information) and then leaked to their buddies in the press.

Former national security adviser Susan Rice privately told House investigators that she unmasked the identities of senior Trump officials to understand why the crown prince of the United Arab Emirates was in New York late last year, multiple sources told CNN.

That's a lie. How do I know? Because of her long history of lying.

Not only was she the Designated Liar for the "spontaneous protest" lie to save Obama and Hillary on Benghazi, but she has previously lied about knowing "nothing" about Devin Nunes' charge that officials, like herself, unmasked Trump associates:

Woodruff: We've been following a disclosure by the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, Devin Nunes, that in essence, during the final days of the Obama administration, during the transition, after President Trump had been elected, that he and the people around him may have been caught up in surveillance of foreign individuals in that their identities may have been disclosed. Do you know anything about this?

Rice: I know nothing about this. I was surprised to see reports from Chairman Nunes on that count today.

Don't worry, though: Your GOP is on the case.

Trey Gowdy and other House members seem okay with this precedent, so I guess thereís nothing to see here. "I didn't hear anything to believe that she did anything illegal," Florida Rep. Tom Rooney explained to CNN. Unless Rice or some other Obama official admits to leaking classified information, this statement is surely true.

...

Has Rice earned that trust? This, after all, is the woman who went on national television and repeated a bunch of Ben Rhodes-authored falsehoods regarding the September 11, 2012, Benghazi terror attacks, claiming they were a "spontaneous reaction" to "hateful and offensive video." This is the woman who went on PBS to lie about her role in unmasking, although there was apparently nothing wrong with it. Rice didnít tell Woodruff "I can't disclose that kind of sensitive information," or "no comment," she told her 'I know nothing about this." Rice is extraordinarily comfortable lying to the American people.

Pro-Tip: When you only play to lose, you can expect to lose an awful lot.

But maybe that's always been the plan.
