Video of the Day: Susan Rice Suggests Without Evidence That Russia Could Be Funding Violent Liberal Riots

While appearing on Fake News CNN, the cable outlet once designated the “least-trusted” name in network news, serial liar Susan Rice suggested to Wolf Blitzer that the Russian government could be funding the violent left-wing riots taking place across the country.  Of course, she had absolutely no evidence for her claim.

“I would bet based on my experience, I’m not reading the intelligence these days but based on my experience,” she said, “this is right out of the Russian playbook as well.”

“I would not be surprised to learn that they have fomented some of these extremists on both sides using social media,” she added.  “I wouldn’t be surprised to learn that they are funding it in some way, shape or form.”

The Daily Caller added:

Will Donald Trump win the 2024 election?

Rice also pushed the unfounded theory that white supremacists and right-wing groups are behind some of the social discord.

“To designate antifa a terrorist organization, fine, but let’s also focus on the right-wing terrorists supremacists he called in the past very fine people. We have a problem here, Wolf,” she said.

That idea gained traction on Saturday, when government officials in Minnesota asserted that right-wing groups were responsible for most of the violence in Minneapolis.

Here’s video of her claim as posted to Twitter:

The Daily Caller report noted that Blitzer didn’t question her conspiracy theory:

“You’re absolutely right on the foreign interference,” said Blitzer, “because we know for decades the Russians, when it was the Soviet Union, the communists, they’ve oftentimes tried to embarrass the United States by promoting the racial divide in our country.”

“But what you’re suggesting, ambassador, is that they’re still trying to do that? Is that what you’re saying?”

“Well, we see it all the time,” Rice said.

“We’ve seen it for years, and, frankly, every day on social media, where they take any divisive painful issue whether it’s immigration, whether it’s gay rights, whether it’s gun violence, and always racism, and they play on both sides.”

Rice’s remarks are not the first time she’s floated an unfounded theory to explain an outbreak of violence that has led to the death of several Americans.

We can’t help but wonder what’s next…
