Reports: Susan Rice Meets Intel Panel on 'Unmasking'

(Fox News' "Special Report")

By    |   Wednesday, 06 September 2017 09:28 PM

Former President Barack Obama's National Security Adviser Susan Rice answered questions from members of Congress behind closed doors Wednesday about unmasking of Donald Trump campaign members, at least two news outlets reported.

Rice met for three hours with the House Intelligence Committee, Fox News' Catherine Herridge reported.

Committee members ignored reporters' questions afterward, Herridge said.

Rice was called before the panel partly to answer questions from Republicans about her role in "unmasking" of members of Trump's campaign, according to The Wall Street Journal.

Some in the GOP have raised concerns unmasking requests might have been politically motivated. Rice, as national security adviser, had authority to request the names of Americans be revealed.

Both she and her deputy Ben Rhodes requested names be unredacted from documents about Trump team members' meetings with Russian officials as part of the investigation into Russian attempts to influence the election.

"Ambassador Rice remains fully supportive of bipartisan efforts to determine the extent and scope of Russia's outrageous efforts to interfere in the 2016 election, which violated one of the core foundations of American democracy," Erin Pelton, a spokeswoman for Rice, told the Journal. "Ambassador Rice appreciates the House and Senate Committees efforts and was pleased again to cooperate with the investigations given their extraordinary national significance."
