Even as Democrats claim Susan Rice did nothing wrong with ‘unmasking’, Brit Hume is hesitant to let the ‘advisor’ off the hook quite so easily.
Because she did do something wrong, she lied … a lot.
In fact, if lying were a subject you could study and get a degree in, Rice would be a PhD.
Before everyone exonerates Susan Rice on unmasking, let's not forget the whopper she told on national TV about it: https://t.co/NKeYYQ3j4d

From The Federalist:
On the same day, former National Security Adviser Susan Rice was interviewed by PBS’s Judy Woodruff and asked to respond to Nunes’ accusation that she had unmasked those Trump officials in the waning days of the Obama administration. Here is the exchange:
Woodruff: We’ve been following a disclosure by the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, Devin Nunes, that in essence, during the final days of the Obama administration, during the transition, after President Trump had been elected, that he and the people around him may have been caught up in surveillance of foreign individuals in that their identities may have been disclosed. Do you know anything about this?
Rice: I know nothing about this. I was surprised to see reports from Chairman Nunes on that count today.
As we now know, Rice wasn’t surprised. At all.
Honestly at this point it would only be more surprising if she hadn’t lied.
Susan Rice saves her best lies for national TV. See also: Benghazi.

Susan Rice lied. And then she lied about lying. And they she lied some more.
The word of the day is ‘lie’, boys and girls.
Rice is as dirty as they come NEVER should be allowed to get away with these unmasking which CLEARLY were MOTIVATED by POLITICS #JailHer

It’s stunning how blatantly dishonest the Obama administration has been, especially Susan Rice.
She was carrying water for Obama, you know it, and we know it.

Of course she was; toward the end that may have been her official title even.
Yeah but Trump got 2 scoops of icecream so to the Democrats we're even

And sadly this is how their minds work.
