House Judiciary Committee member Matt Gaetz responded to revelations that Susan Rice lied about unmasking General Michael Flynn by comparing her to a world-famous composer. “If lies were music, Susan Rice would be Mozart,” Congressman Gaetz told Fox News host Sean Hannity.
The Florida Republican’s comments come as a video has surfaced of the former national security advisor under Barack Obama claiming in an interview with PBS that she “know(s) nothing” about the unmasking of members of President Trump’s 2016 transition team.
Newly unclassified documents reveal that Rice’s claim couldn’t have been further from the truth. Not only did she have knowledge of the Flynn unmasking, but dozens of other members of the Obama-Biden administration requested the unmasking as well.
His disclosures lay bare the coup before the American people.

Rep. Gaetz also took aim at an email Rice wrote to herself on January 20th, memorializing a meeting that occurred weeks earlier in which she stressed that then-FBI Director James Comey assured Obama that they had run things “by the book.”
“If I were writing myself an email where three times I had to say I did everything “by the book,” that is certainly more incriminating than it is exculpatory,” a sarcastic Gaetz added.
The congressman went on to eviscerate Comey, alleging that if acting Director of National Intelligence Richard Grenell —who declassified both the list of unmasking requests and the Rice email— had been in this position previously, Comey would be in serious trouble. “If Ric Grenell had been the director of national intelligence back in 2017, Jim Comey would probably already be under the jail,” Gaetz claimed, “because the Grenell disclosures laid bare the coup before the American people.”
“[Trump] and the people around him may have been caught up in surveillance of foreign individuals and their identities may have been disclosed. Do you know anything about this?”

Being a serial liar seems to be the most prominent attribute at the top of Rice’s resume. She was, after all, the sacrificial lamb who covered for Hillary Clinton (according to her own book) by appearing on five Sunday television interviews after the Benghazi terrorist attack in 2012, falsely blaming the attack on a YouTube video. What role is she auditioning for with a reputation like that?

Rice told PBS she is “humbled and honored” to be on a list of token women Joe Biden has insisted he must choose as his vice president, and “certainly would say yes” if asked. A Biden-Mozart ticket would play right into a pretty decent guarantee of a Trump victory.
