Van Jones Wants Trump To Give Susan Rice The Presidential Medal Of Freedom [Watch]
Andrew Kugle, Washington Free Beacon
Van Jones said Wednesday on his CNN show, "The Messy Truth," that President Donald Trump should give Susan Rice, former President Barack Obama's national security adviser, the Presidential Medal of Freedom.
Jones told Republicans that instead of attacking Rice for her reported role in allegedly unmasking Trump transition officials, whose communications were incidentally captured by U.S. intelligence, they should be thanking her for not going public with the classified information to hurt the president.
"She got very disturbing information, and she looked into it. And as best we can tell, she did her job inside the proper channels," Jones said. "For doing this, Donald Trump should give Susan Rice the Presidential Medal of Freedom, OK?"
Jones also criticized conservative media for its reporting on Rice.
