Lou Dobbs and Pete Hoekstra discussed Susan Rice wiggling out of testifying before Congress. The former representative from Michigan says have law enforcement bring her in.
Samantha Powers is going in Susan Rice’s place and Rice is postponed indefinitely.
This is disgraceful.
Dobbs asked, “Let’s start with Susan Rice bailing on the House Intelligence Committee, indefinitely but at least for now, but still seemingly willing to talk to the Senate Intelligence Committee, we’re told, we can’t verify that, but a date uncertain as to when she would do that.”
He continued “Are these two committees getting played here?”
Hoekstra said, “They may be, but, you know, the committee has an option, subpoena her. Make her appear before the committee.”
Dobbs then asked, “And what if she chooses to say, ‘No simply just can’t do it because it would be incriminating,” whatever the case?”
Hoekstra’s response is great: “Send law enforcement after her. Take her to the Capitol and make her testify. There’s every reason why she should testify. These are, as you’ve brought up numerous times, these are important issues.”
“I think the most important issue here is, you know, I think the Intelligence community, it appears to me, what I’ve heard over the last six to seven months is they have taken this ability to capture American conversations overseas and they have started, from my perspective they have started to abuse this.”
Hoekstra adds, “When they capture your call to somebody overseas or my call, they’re supposed to deep six it. And it appears now that too many of these conversations made their way to the White House, they were unmasked too often, and what is Samantha Power, an implementer of foreign policy, not an analyst, why is she a part of this unmasking?”
Dobbs agrees that many in Obama’s administration acted in violation of American law and did so for political purposes. The only reason to expand the distribution of raw intelligence was to get damaging information on Trump and his administration.
