Serial liar Susan Rice suggested to Wolf Blitzer that the Russian government could be funding the violent left-wing riots taking place across the country. Of course, she had absolutely no evidence for her claim.
“I would bet based on my experience, I’m not reading the intelligence these days but based on my experience, this is right out of the Russian playbook as well.”
I would not be surprised to learn that they have fomented some of these extremists on both sides using social media, I wouldn’t be surprised to learn that they are funding it in some way, shape, or form.”
Russia? Really? Sorry Susan but that train wreck left the station a long time ago. It’s time to come up with a different fake conspiracy theory. Did you lose your tin foil hat?
The Daily Caller added:
Rice also pushed the unfounded theory that white supremacists and right-wing groups are behind some of the social discord.
“To designate antifa a terrorist organization, fine, but let’s also focus on the right-wing terrorists supremacists he called in the past very fine people. We have a problem here, Wolf,” she said.
Another Susan Rice lie, and Wolf didn’t confront her on it. The President’ never said the Neo-Nazis were very fine people.
So then, who were the “fine people?” Prager asked.
“He was referring to another group of Charlottesville demonstrators who came out that weekend—protestors who wanted the Robert E. Lee statue removed and protestors who wanted to keep the statue and restore the park’s original name.
This is what President Trump said about those peaceful protestors: “You also had some very fine people on both sides.—You had people in that group that were there to protest the taking down of—to them—a very, very important statue and the renaming of a park from Robert E. Lee to another name.”
A few moments later, in case there would be any misunderstanding, he makes his meaning even more explicit. “…I’m not talking about the neo-Nazis and the white nationalists. They should be condemned totally.”

Maybe she’ll blame all of it on a YouTube video as well.

Maybe not, Susan Rice rightfully got labeled as a liar when she spread that YouTube video whopper on every Sunday news show.
The Daily Caller report noted that Blitzer didn’t question her conspiracy theory:
“You’re absolutely right on the foreign interference,” said Blitzer, “because we know for decades the Russians, when it was the Soviet Union, the communists, they’ve oftentimes tried to embarrass the United States by promoting the racial divide in our country.”
“But what you’re suggesting, ambassador, is that they’re still trying to do that? Is that what you’re saying?”
Well, we see it all the time,” Rice said.
“We’ve seen it for years, and, frankly, every day on social media, where they take any divisive painful issue whether it’s immigration, whether it’s gay rights, whether it’s gun violence, and always racism, and they play on both sides.”
Rice’s remarks are not the first time she’s floated an unfounded theory to explain an outbreak of violence that has led to the death of several Americans.
We can’t help but wonder what’s next. It’s too late for her to unmask anyone.
How can anyone believe her? After all, as Rep Matt Gaetz (R-Fla) said about Susan Rice, “if lies are music, she’s Mozart.”
