Gutfeld: Did Susan Rice break the law?

The former Obama national security adviser says she 'leaked nothing to nobody'

 

So what does Susan Rice know about the accusation that she is behind the attempt to unmask Trump officials? I bet it's nothing.

SUSAN RICE, FORMER NATIONAL SECURITY ADVISER: I know nothing about this. I was surprised to see reports from Chairman Nunes on that count today. I really don't know to what Chairman Nunes was referring. I was not aware of any orders given to disseminate that kind of information. But the fact is that the president did request back in December that the intelligence community compile all of the information that it had on what had transpired during the campaign.

So she is unaware of orders, but she knew of the request. Sneaky little ploy. I'm going to try that this weekend. Officer, I didn't order the drugs. I just requested them.

But this is pure Rice. Remember, she is the one who blamed Benghazi on a video. Now she is pulling a Sergeant Schultz. She sees nothing. She knows nothing. Maybe she can blame her amnesia on an episode of "Hogan's Heroes." Did she leak the names?

ANDREA MITCHELL, NBC NEWS: Did you leaked the name of Mike Flynn.

RICE: I leaked nothing to nobody and never have and never would.

She leaked "nothing to nobody," a double negative. She either leaked everything to everyone or maybe she just misspoke. Again, this woman is crafty. But did she break the law? Well, incidental collection is legal. We all know this. When you surveil a foreigner but then you get picked up too. But it could also be reverse monitoring. They say they're recording Igor but they really want you instead. Igor is just the wingman. Now, if you combine reverse monitoring with unmasking, you can mess with just about everyone. It may still be legal but it's not cool.

Others will prefer to raise hell over Russian collusion. Raise away. But be aware in the evidence sweepstakes, the leak story is on firmer ground while the collusion stuff still remains foggy. These two stories are likely Yankees and the Red Sox. Everyone is wildly devoted to their team and hates the other.

Meanwhile we use sight of the truly deadly threat: Those who see you and me as stepping stones to 72 virgins. That's a collection that's far from incidental and way more final.
