These Are The Questions Susan Rice Needs To Answer ASAP

David Harsanyi, The Federalist

The House Intelligence Committee reportedly wants former National Security Adviser Susan Rice to testify in the probe of alleged Russian election interference that now includes evidence that Obama officials may have improperly used intelligence gathered on the incoming Trump transition team.

We’ve been incessantly assured there’s nothing to this story. Perhaps. This week, though, Rice felt the need to seek out a friendly face in Andrea Mitchell — although there were plenty to choose from — to tell us that she never “improperly” unmasked any Trump transition officials whose conversations were caught on surveillance.

Now, there are a number of worthy follow-ups that Mitchell forgot to ask. But since Rice says nothing unethical transpired, there should be no problem in her answering those queries under oath.

For instance: “Why did you lie to PBS about having no knowledge of the unmasking of Trump officials or family?”

On the heels of the allegations made by Rep. Devin Nunes, Rice was asked if the Obama administration had unmasked Trump transition members swept up in surveillance of other individuals. “I know nothing about this,” she claimed at the time. “I was surprised to see reports from Chairman Nunes on that count today.” She didn’t say, “so much of this is routine, I’m unsure” or “it would be completely inappropriate for me to talk about intelligence reports.” She said “I know nothing” and “I was surprised.”

When America Was Truly The Land Of Opportunity

For [early immigrants] America was truly the land of opportunity. For the first time in their lives, many were truly free to pursue their own objectives. That freedom released the human energies which created the United States. There were few government programs to turn to and nobody expected them. But also there were few rules and regulations. There were no licenses, no permits, no red tape to restrict them. They found, in fact, a free market, and most of them thrived on it.
