Susan Rice, who served on President Barack Obama’s Cabinet as national security adviser, says the previous administration also stored communications on a top-secret server though only if the document was classified.

Rice was speaking at the Texas Tribune Festival Friday about the White House’s decision to move a transcript of President Donald Trump’s July 25 phone call with Ukrainian President Voldymyr Zelensky to one of the government’s most sensitive computer systems.

Rice blasted the Trump administration for the move.

“What they did, instead of storing it in the normal system, which is protected and classified, even though there was no classified substance in that actual discussion, instead of putting it where it normally resides, they hid it on a very highly sensitive, highly compartmented server that very few people in the U.S. government have access to in order to bury it,” Rice said.

"We never moved them over unless they were legitimately, in the contents, classified," she added.

Rice claimed the transcript between Trump and Zelensky was not classified.

 “It’s rare that a presidential conversation would be classified to that highest level. It’s not impossible,” she said. “It’s very rare. Even when they are two leaders discussing classified information. Here’s a case where there was nothing classified and it was moved to the most secure, sensitive server.”
