Rand Paul: 'Susan Rice Should Testify Under Oath'

Senator Rand Paul on Monday called for top Obama aide Susan Rice to testify under oath before congress in response to new reports showing she ordered the "unmasking" of Trump transition officials who were spied on by the government under Obama.

Eli Lake reported yesterday that Rice "requested the identities of U.S. persons in raw intelligence reports on dozens of occasions that connect to the Donald Trump transition and campaign."

In plain language, she spied on Trump's associates throughout the election, and it had nothing to do with tenuous connections to Russia.

From The Hill:
“I don’t think we should discount how big a deal it was that Susan Rice was looking at these, and she needs to be asked, did President Obama ask her to do this? Was this a directive from President Obama?” Paul told reporters.

“I think she ought to testify under oath on this. 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.

...“I think it is inappropriate and it should be illegal,” Paul said of the incidental collection on Americans without a warrant. “I don’t think you should be allowed to listen to Americans’ conversations without a warrant. They are doing it without a warrant. They are targeting a foreigner, and because they are targeting a foreigner they are gathering all of this information on Americans.”

“Is there a possibility that Susan Rice was politically motivated? Let’s ask her why she was opening up all of the conversations with Trump transition figures,” he said.
This is Watergate.

Susan Rice claimed she knew "nothing" about the spying even though she personally took part in it:

This is the real scandal the Democrats are trying to hide with this made up Russian conspiracy hoax.

You know this cuts deep because the big three networks are almost completely ignoring it when they'd be going batsh*t crazy if it came out the Bush administration did this to Obama.

Barack Obama needs to be made to testify. Same goes for Susan Rice, James Clapper and John Brennan. We need to know what they knew and when they knew it.
