Susan Rice has once again shown her true colors as details are coming out that she’s the one who leaked the Facebook/Russia story.
Obama and Clinton aides are seemingly obsessed with Russia. They entirely believe that the election was stolen from them through Russian interference. So Obama, along with Susan Rice, began pointing the finger at Mark Zuckerberg and Facebook.
Essentially, WaPo published a story around Barack Obama and his “efforts” to convince Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg that they needed to take Russia and “fake news” much more seriously. This happened when the two met in Peru following the 2016 election.
But as pointed out by Fox News just yesterday, that is entirely “fake news” as well. Obama and Rice were warned in 2014 about Russian activities but did nothing then either.
From Fox News:
The story detailed how then-President Obama gave Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg a “wake-up call” regarding fake news spreading on his social media platform. After reporting that Obama “made a personal appeal to Zuckerberg to take the threat of fake news and political disinformation seriously,” the paper has added that Obama “did not single out Russia specifically.”
The story reported that Obama and his top aides “quietly agonized on how to respond to Russia’s brazen intervention on behalf of the Donald Trump campaign without making matters worse.”
The paper also added a statement from Facebook’s vice president of communications, Elliot Schrage, which it received after the front-page story was published. Schrage told the Post that Obama’s talk with Zuckerberg was about “misinformation and false news” and “did not include any references to possible foreign interference or suggestions about confronting threats to Facebook.”
The initial correction was unclear and only mentioned that it added Schrage’s statement, but this was eventually corrected by the paper’s editorial staff.
As reported by The Resurgent:
When it came to Russia, Obama, Clinton, and Rice were asleep at the switch for 8 years. From the reset button, to promising to be “more flexible” to doing nothing in 2016 when their intelligence indicated Russians were trying to impact our elections.
The Obama national security team were the ones who had the intelligence throughout 2016. If they thought there were actions that needed to be taken to protect the country it was incumbent on them to act.
So once again, Benghazi Susan Rice is trying to find anyone else to blame
