Susan Rice has been exposed — well, further exposed — as a corrupt liar. Naturally, that makes her a victim:

Nice headline there, Politico. The article’s great, too:

Now, conservatives are accusing Rice of actively undermining him instead—by misusing her authority to sabotage Flynn, who was out of the job in less than a month.

Conservative critics have suggested Rice sought the identities of officials on Trump’s transition team for political purposes, something Rice flatly denied on Tuesday. “The allegation is that somehow Obama administration officials utilized intelligence for political purposes,” Rice told MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell. “That’s absolutely false.”

Her denial did nothing to slow down the gathering wave of outrage in conservative media outlets. Her face appeared for much of the day on Fox News, Breitbart and other right-leaning outlets—with a big assist from Trump, who retweeted a morning Drudge Report headline that read “RICE ORDERED SPY DOCS ON TRUMP?”

It was inevitable, really. But that doesn’t make it any less obnoxious.

Heaven forbid the media hold Rice accountable for straight-up lying. Can’t wait for the next scalding-hot take.
