"Senator Whitehouse has informed us by letter that he did not agree to Chairman Graham's invitation to Ambassador Rice, a significant departure from the bipartisan invitations extended to other witnesses," Ruemmler wrote. "Under these circumstances, Ambassador Rice respectfully declines Senator Graham's invitation to testify."A source familiar with Rice's discussions told CNN that when Graham invited her, Rice believed it was a bipartisan overture and was prepared to accept. However, Whitehouse indicated to her that the invitation was made without his agreement, as he believed her presence was not relevant to the topic of the hearing, according to the source.
Rice considered the invitation a "diversionary play" to distract attention from the investigation into Russian election interference, including contacts between Trump allies and Russians during the campaign, the source said.
Concerning ObamaGate and illegal spying of the Trump campaign and cabinet...Nothing says the Obama administration is more guilty of Espionage then Susan Rice Obama's National Security Adviser now refusing to testify before the Senate on the matter. With Susan Rice now refusing to step in front of a Senate Committee regarding ObamaGate...It's now time for the arrests of Susan Rice and Obama officials including Obama himself.
If you can't testify in front of the Senate like Susan Rice just did just now, when she has stated that Obama spying on the Trump team did not take place...Then Susan Rice just implicated the whole Obama team in violating the Espionage Act and has now officially vindicated President Trump in his claim that President Obama and others illegally spied on him from 2015-2017. Usually when a crime is committed and the guilty party refuses to appear in a hearing...Usually this means they understand they are in deep shit and possibly thinking about going on the run, so like I've stated it's time for multiple arrests.
