Former national security adviser and UN ambassador Susan Rice refuses to go quietly into retirement, even though she remains one of the most controversial figures of the Obama Administration.
She’s especially bitter that organizations like Judicial Watch continue to look into Rice’s efforts to “unmask” certain Trump transition officials named in foreign surveillance records. JW says the move is evidence that the Obama team “weaponized” information against the incoming administration.
She says the investigation is tantamount to a witch hunt. Judicial Watch says that Rice and her colleagues were so desperate to hide evidence that she may have violated rules protecting classified information. It says that they quickly shifted all documents related to the case to Obama’s Presidential Library, effectively sealing them for at least five years.
