Former Obama national security advisor Susan Rice slammed Republican Senator Lindsey Graham as a “piece of sh*t” because she’s still furious that Graham called her out for lying about the 2012 Benghazi terrorist attack.
Rice made the remarks on the left-wing podcast “Pod Save America,” which is co-hosted by Tommy Vietor, a former Obama spokesman.
When Vietor started saying, “Lindsey Graham isn’t just a piece of sh*t now,” Rice interjected: “He has been a piece of sh*t!”
Rice reiterated for emphasis: “I said it, dammit. Finally! He’s a piece of sh*t.”

Susan Rice is still upset that Americans will never forget her role in trivializing the vicious murders of four Americans during the 2012 attacks on the U.S. Embassy in Benghazi, Libya.
The radical Islamic terrorist attacks were committed on the 11-year anniversary of 9/11. At the time, Rice was Obama’s national security advisor while Hillary Clinton was secretary of state.
Shortly after the terrorist attacks, both Hillary and Rice lied to the world and blamed the attacks on Americans, saying it was a direct response to an anti-Islam video posted online by Americans.
“It began spontaneously in Benghazi, as a reaction to what had transpired hours earlier in Cairo, where there was a violent protest outside of our embassy sparked by this hateful [anti-Islam] video,” Rice said.
That was a lie. Not only was the Benghazi attack premeditated (not “spontaneous”), but there was no anti-Islam video that triggered the event. Besides, murdering four Americans is not a proportional response to an inflammatory video.
The Benghazi incident is emblematic of Barack Obama’s entire presidency, which blamed the United States for all the problems in the world and refused to call out radical Islamic terrorism by name.
Susan Rice is also mad at Lindsey Graham because he has called her out on her other lies. In 2018, Graham demanded that Rice explain a bizarre email she sent herself moments after President Trump was inaugurated.

At 12:15 p.m. on January 20, 2017, Rice sent herself an email where she recalled a January 5 meeting with Obama, during which she claims he told her to make sure the Russia investigation was done “by the book.”
Rice’s email to herself states:
“President Obama began the conversation by stressing his continued commitment to ensuring that every aspect of this issue is handled by the Intelligence and law enforcement communities ‘by the book.’
The president stressed that he is not asking about, initiating or instructing anything from a law enforcement perspective. He reiterated that our law enforcement team needs to proceed as it normally would by the book.”
Many speculate that Rice’s email to herself was a memo to retroactively exculpate herself and Obama in case the bogus Russia meddling investigation imploded, as it later did.

Senator Graham told Fox News in 2018 that the “note to self” email was ridiculous because the Trump-Russia investigation by the Obama FBI and DOJ was not done “by the book” in any way.
According to Rice’s email, Obama met with his FBI Director James Comey and then-Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates on January 5, 2017. Rice said she and then-Vice President Joe Biden were also at the meeting, which took place in the Oval Office.
The Rice email directly contradicts the 2018 sworn testimony of James Comey, who told the Senate that the last time he had met with Obama was “late-2016.”
Moreover, White House logs do not corroborate Rice’s version of events.
Senator Graham said the email Rice wrote to herself was “unusual” because why would Obama need to remind her, the FBI’s Comey, and the DOJ’s Sally Yates to do their jobs “by the book?”
After all, it should be understood that any federal investigation should be done properly, without partisan bias, as was the case with the sham Trump-Russia probe.
Also, haven’t Democrats vehemently insisted all along that Obama had nothing to do with investigating the Trump campaign?
In April 2017, Trump-hating Judge Andrew Napolitano said Susan Rice may have committed espionage when she unmasked President Trump’s transition team members.
Judge Napolitano said Rice was entitled to ask for the names of Trump’s team as part of her job, but revealing their identities to undermine Trump was “espionage.”
Under U.S. federal law, espionage is a felony punishable by death (that’s how seriously the United States views random spying on private citizens).
Basically, if Rice had abused her position as a national security advisor to unmask Trump aides as part of an effort to sabotage the Trump administration, she committed a federal crime.
