Former Obama official Susan Rice will lead the White House Domestic Policy Council, announced President-elect Joe Biden on Thursday.
As the name suggests, the Domestic Policy Council is responsible for ensuring that all domestic policy decisions and programs are consistent with the President’s goals.
Rice’s position as head of the council will give her broad control over Biden’s domestic agenda, including healthcare, pandemic response, immigration, racial inequality, and education.
“The roles they will take on are where the rubber meets the road – where competent and crisis-tested governance can make a meaningful difference in people’s lives, enhancing the dignity, equity, security, and prosperity of the day-to-day lives of Americans,” said Biden, referring to Rice and other incoming officials.
Susan Rice may be “crisis-tested,” but she certainly isn’t competent.
Rice served in the Obama Administration as US Ambassador to the UN from 2009-2013 and then as National Security Adviser from 2013-2017. It is very possible that she would have replaced Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State had she not been caught lying about the 2012 Benghazi attacks.
“Remember, Susan Rice is the Typhoid Mary of the Obama Administration foreign policy,” says Senator Tom Cotton (R-AR). “Every foreign policy disaster of the Obama Administration, you know – from the Libya war in 2011 which is still raging today, to the Iran Nuclear Deal, to sticking the FBI and the intelligence community on Donald Trump’s campaign in 2016.”
On President Trump’s Inauguration day, Rice sent herself an email containing then-FBI Director James Comey’s inappropriate suggestion that Obama withhold “sensitive information related to Russia” from Trump’s incoming National Security Adviser, Michael Flynn.
Rice has also been exposed as one of several Obama officials who filed numerous “unmasking” requests in an attempt to reveal the names of individuals connected to Trump’s transition team.
Rice was caught in another lie in April 2017 when a chemical attack in Syria caused massive civilian chemical poisoning in the town of Khan Shaykun. Months earlier, Rice claimed that her team had convinced the Syrian government to “voluntarily and verifiably give up its chemical weapons stockpile.”
Author’s Note: Susan Rice is an incredibly dangerous individual who will do anything to get ahead. Obviously, Biden gave her a position that doesn’t require Senate approval because he knew she would never get past GOP lawmakers.
