While appearing on Sunday’s edition of ABC News’ “This Week,” Susan Rice, former national security adviser under President Obama, told George Stephanopoulos that Russian President Vladimir Putin is lying by denying Russian interference in the 2016 election.
“I don’t know what we’ll hear from President Putin, George. But frankly, he’s lying,” Rice said. “The reality is, as all of our intelligence agencies have come together to affirm with high confidence, the Russian government at the highest levels was behind the very unprecedented effort to meddle in our 2016 presidential election.”
“We need to understand exactly how and why that happened and whether or not there’s any evidence to suggest that there were those on the American side who facilitated that meddling,” she added.
ABC News added:
In his meeting with European leaders on his recent trip abroad, Trump drew attention by not explicitly endorsing NATO’s Article 5, which requires all nations in the alliance to come to the defense of any member that is attacked.
“That is exactly what Vladimir Putin wants,” Rice said. “Because Putin’s interests, as he actually reaffirmed just on Friday, is to see NATO weakened and ultimately destroyed. And when the United States, the most important player in NATO, casts doubt about our commitment to that vital alliance, it undermines our security. It undermines the security of our closest allies. And it’s a big win for Vladimir Putin.”
Here’s video of her appearance on ABC News:
Keep in mind this is the same Susan Rice who repeatedly told the American public the Benghazi terror attack was sparked by a YouTube video and recently told Andrea Mitchell she didn’t unmask Trump associates for political purposes, appearing to contradict a statement she made on PBS.
There was a time in journalism when guests who appeared on a program and told big fat whoppers to the American people were not asked back. https://t.co/3cCS8N8UJC
