RUNNING MATE? Russia-gate Villain Susan Rice is Now Sending Fundraising Emails for Joe Biden
Susan Rice, former national security advisor and United Nations ambassador under President Barack H. Obama, is fundraising for Democrat presidential contender Joe Biden, adding to the speculation that she might be his vice presidential pick.
“Look, we are in a moment where our democracy is at stake. Our leadership role in the world is at stake. The lives of tens of thousands of Americans are on the line,” the fundraising email from Rice reads.
“It’s all been lost to incompetence and callous leadership that could care less. We’ve got to change that,” the plea continues.

“I’m fed up with Donald Trump turning our government into a reality TV show, and weakening our democratic institutions at every turn,” Rice writes in the email.
“Look, we are in a moment where our democracy is at stake. Our leadership role in the world is at stake. The lives of tens of thousands of Americans are on the line. It’s all been lost to incompetence and callous leadership that could care less. We’ve got to change that,” the email continues.
“I know we can fix the mess that Donald Trump has created in these four years, but it will take someone with the patriotism, grit, determination, and the experience to get things done, and we all know that’s exactly who Joe Biden is,” she adds.
Big League Politics has reported on how Rice has been at the center of the Russia-gate witch hunt that has made a mockery of the rule of law and the intelligence community:
The House Intelligence Committee has issued subpoenas for information regarding unmasking requests made by former national security adviser Susan Rice, former CIA Director John Brennan and former United Nations Ambassador Samantha Power.
The subpoenas were sent to the National Security Agency, the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Central Intelligence Agency requesting information about how and why intelligence community intercepts of those close to the Donald Trump campaign were unmasked and ultimately leaked to the press.
Normally, the identities of US citizens who are not the targets, but sometimes get caught in the government spying, are redacted to protect their privacy. The process of “unmasking” the identities of people whose conversations were intercepted can only be requested by a select few within the intelligence community.
In March, White House lawyers learned that Rice was behind unmasking names of people within the Trump team, such as General Mike Flynn, whose conversation with a Russian ambassador was later leaked to the media.
Appearing on “PBS NewsHour” in March, Rice was asked about Trump and his team being caught up in incidental intelligence collection, and she denied having any knowledge of it happening.
“I know nothing about this,” Rice said. “I was surprised to see reports from Chairman Nunes on that account today.”
After it was revealed that she was personally behind the unmasking of Flynn, Rice claimed in an interview with MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell that the Obama administration did not abuse intelligence surveillance for political purposes.
“The allegation is that somehow, Obama administration officials utilized intelligence for political purposes,” Rice asserted. “That’s absolutely false. Let me explain how this works. I was the national security adviser. My job is to protect the American people and the security of our country. That’s the same as the secretary of state, the secretary of defense, the CIA director.”
Rice also denied being behind the leaking of unmasked phone conversations to the media. The former national security advisor is married to ABC News Executive Producer Ian Cameron.
“I leaked nothing to nobody,” Rice said, laughing, “and never have and never would.”
Following the interview, White House Director of Social Media Dan Scavino tweeted, “lyin’, leakin’ Susan Rice stammered through her soft ball interview with Dem PR person Andrea Mitchell.”
If Rice is made Democrat vice presidential candidate, it will give President Trump a golden opportunity to hammer Rice for her role in the failed Obama administration, which was followed up with an attempt to undermine Trump through bureaucratic sabotage.
