Former national security advisor to Obama, Susan Rice, just crippled Democrat leaders and mainstream media’s attempt to frame Trump storing the now-released call transcript with the Ukrainian president on a top-secret server as against the rules or evidence that he did something unlawful by admitting that Obama did that, too!
In a rather non-answer trying to get around a direct question about Obama doing the same thing Democrats say is evidence of an impeachable offense for Trump, Rice said,
“We never moved them over unless they were legitimately, in the contents classified.”
Giving no specification of what exactly the circumstances of this “legitimacy” was, Rice just acknowledged that there were times where Obama stored call transcripts on a top-secret server also.
Fox News has more to say about Susan Rice's admission of Obama doing the same as Trump:
Susan Rice, who was one of President Obama's closest advisers during his time in office, blasted President Trump on Friday night for storing details about his July 25 call with Ukraine's President Volodymyr Zelensky in a separate, highly secured computer system.
Rice, who was a guest at the Texas Tribune Festival in Austin, addressed whistleblower allegations that the Trump administration worked to "lock down" these records to presumably hide his interaction with Zelensky where he dangled about $400 million in military aid to get Kiev to investigate the Bidens relationship to the country.
Both Trump and Zelensky denied the allegations. Trump insisted that the conversation was "perfect" and he was just making sure the country was making good on its promise to weed out corruption.
Obama’s former national security adviser said the "normal system" that holds information on similar calls is protected and classified. She said there was "no classified substance" in the Trump phone call and yet the administration "hid it on a very highly sensitive, highly compartmentalized server that very few people in the U.S. government have access to in order to bury it."
Newsmax also said:
Rice blasted the Trump administration for the move.
“What they did, instead of storing it in the normal system, which is protected and classified, even though there was no classified substance in that actual discussion, instead of putting it where it normally resides, they hid it on a very highly sensitive, highly compartmented server that very few people in the U.S. government have access to in order to bury it,” Rice said.
"We never moved them over unless they were legitimately, in the contents, classified," she added.
Rice claimed the transcript between Trump and Zelensky was not classified.
“It’s rare that a presidential conversation would be classified to that highest level. It’s not impossible,” she said.
