Susan Rice’s Mother on Her Daughter Taking Clinton’s Place After Benghazi: ‘I Smell a Rat’

Susan Rice’s mother said, “I smell a rat” when she found out her daughter, the former National Security Adviser under Barack Obama, had to cover for Hillary Clinton in the wake of the Benghazi terrorist attack.

Rice recalls the exchange in her new book, “Tough Love: My Story of the Things Worth Fighting For.”

She told her mother that she was pushed to do five Sunday television interviews by the Obama administration to cover for Clinton.

“Why do you have to go on the shows? Where is Hillary?” Lois Dickson Rice asked, suggesting her daughter refuse to take part.

Rice told her mother that Clinton was allegedly “wiped out after a brutal week” and that the White House needed her to step in.

The audacity to hear Hillary making the claim that she was “wiped out” when, as Secretary of State, the attacks that killed four Americans happened under her watch.

Rice’s mother suspected something was up.

“I smell a rat. This is not a good idea. Can’t you get out of it?” her mother said according to excerpts from the book.

Rice responded, “Mom, don’t be ridiculous. I’ve done the shows. It will be fine.”

Of course, it wasn’t. It was a debacle, killing off any chance Rice may have had to advance in her career, including potentially being named as successor to Clinton at the State Department.

This new account is essentially asserting that Rice was thrown under the bus by Obama and a “wiped out” Hillary so they could push the lie that the Benghazi attacks were the result of an obscure YouTube video.

And Rice’s mother was pretty spot on when she said she ‘smells a rat.’

The American people did too.

Rice, though she defended Clinton in the exchange with her mother, suspected the former Secretary of State knew what she was doing when they made her go out and lie to the American people.

“I do believe that Hillary Clinton and [National Security Adviser] Tom Donilon appreciated what I did not,” Rice wrote. “The first person to tell the public about a highly political tragedy was likely to pay a price.”

And Hillary wasn’t about to be the one to pay that price.

  • Susan Rice's papers are sealed for 5 years? What is the justification?
    Yet the left and the "whistleblower" protest that the Trump admin placed the transcript of the President's call with the Ukrainean President on a secure server.

  • Tell the truth Susan and clear your name The Donald will pardon you, This has Clintons fingerprints all over it, Best you ask Mum what to do next.

  • I knew it all along Clinton is a two faced lying terrorist traitor to this country. She is a two faced lying rat .she knew about the terrorists attack on Benghazi 2 weeks before it happened she even refused to request reinforcements before the attack .that the people that were killed in the attack had proof of Clinton illegal activity so she ignored the request for reinforcements to stop the attack .and she left the day before the attack she knew her lying and colusion with Russia would come to light so she had them eliminated. If she runs for president she needs to be prosecuted and put in jail for her crimes .she has a lot of high crimes to answer for. Including colusion with the Russians murder theft coverup of all of these crimes and more need to be answered for before she is allowed to run for any office 🤬🤬🤬🤬 and do not remove this it is fact and needs to be told

  • obummer had to protect clinton no matter what. He knew what she did and he had to cover it up.. Everyone says obummer got caught with his pants down. BUT, he is sharp as a tack. He ran the White House like a dictator. No one knew all the parts of what he was or did do. The clintons must have dirt on everyone. They need to be brought down, and pay like any criminal.

  • Susan Rice, email-to-self one hour before Da Kamoonitee Agitatore leaves office: "we did everything by the book".
