Susan recently refused to testify in court. Her excuse was that her invitation to the court was not ‘bipartisan’. She claimed that a Democrat didn’t sign off on the request.
“Chairman Graham’s invitation was extended only after the hearing was noticed, less than two weeks before the hearing was scheduled to occur, and without consultation with Ambassador Rice, a professional courtesy that would customarily be extended to any witness,” explained her lawyer Kathryn Ruemmler.
However, Trey Gowdy shared another way that they could force Rice to testify in court if she isn’t willing to on her own. “There are other ways to invite people other than via a letter. There are things called subpoenas. You shouldn’t have to use it with a former national security adviser, but if you do, you do,” said Gowdy.
“Members of Congress don’t pick the witnesses. Lawyers don’t pick witnesses. The facts pick the witnesses.And whether Ambassador Rice likes it or not, she’s a really important fact witness,” said Gowdy.
In that same interview Trey Gowdy blasted Hillary Clinton. “I don’t think [Comey] told Secretary Clinton to have her own server. I don’t think he told her to give disingenuous answers to questions throughout the campaign. I don’t think he told Anthony Weiner to communicate via text with underage girls. Secretary Clinton, at some point, ought to do a little self reflection,” said Gowdy. Check out Gowdy’s interview below.
