Susan Rice has got a long week ahead of her.
During an interview with MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell, Rice admitted for the first time her part in unmasking “US persons” involved in intel reports.
Rice informed Mitchell that it was “necessary” for her to learn names of those who were supposed to have remained anonymous to “understand the importance of the report” for security reasons.
“When the intelligence community would respond to a request from a senior national security official for the identity of an American, that would come back only to the person who requested it,” Rice said during the lengthy interview.
“It would brought back to them directly… To me or whoever might have requested it.”
But that wasn’t all.
Rice continued to turn herself into a pretzel by insisting that the unmasking had nothing to do with the leaking.
“This is important,” Rice continued. “The notion that which some people are trying to suggest that by asking for the identity of an American person, that is the same as leaking it is completely false.”
She even used some interesting phraseology to drive her point home and claim she had nothing to do with the leaking of Michael Flynn’s name.
“I leaked nothing to nobody,” Rice insisted.

Needless to say, Rice’s semi-confession drew a lot of attention on social media.
The fact that Rice has a proven track record of lying including Benghazi and saying in March that she nothing about the unmasking of U.S. names) that she didn’t help her case:
"I leaked nothing to nobody."Did Susan Rice actually graduate from Stanford? #Pathetic.

Before Rice’s interview, CNN has been working overtime in defense of Rice, starting with Don Lemon who called the story a “diversion” tactic, and later Chris Cuomo continued by calling the story a “fake scandal.”
Don’t hold your breath.
