INTELLIGENCE/NATIONAL SECURITY/OBAMA/RUSSIA/SUSAN RICE: “The House Intelligence Committee wants Susan Rice, a top aide in the Obama administration, to testify in a probe of alleged Russian election interference, as the investigation widens to include allegations that Obama officials improperly used intelligence information involving President Donald Trump or his associates.
Two officials familiar with the matter said that Ms. Rice, who served as national security adviser under former President Barack Obama, is on a list of witnesses drawn up by the committee as part of its probe.
The White House and Rep. Devin Nunes (R., Calif.) the House panel’s chairman, have accused the Obama administration of improperly using surveillance information, including ‘unmasking’ the redacted names of Mr. Trump’s transition team members for political gain.
On Tuesday [4-4-17], in an interview on MSNBC, Ms. Rice said the Obama administration didn’t use intelligence about Mr. Trump or his associates for political purposes.”
