Susan Rice on Government Reform

 

 


Provided in-depth information during Trump transition

Former Ambassador Susan Rice frames the danger involved in depriving President-elect Joe Biden of access to top intelligence briefings normally afforded to the incoming commander in chief of our armed forces.

Susan Rice recounts her own experience of working through three transitions, including from Obama to Trump. She describes how she "laid out in depth the numerous challenges (Trump) would confront immediately--from the campaign to defeat the Islamic State to threats posed by Russia, China, Iran and North Korea. I stressed the need to be prepared for less obvious threats, like the potentially catastrophic collapse of the Mosul Dam in Iraq and pandemic disease."

The reaction from˙Trump and his people was typical both in its arrogance and blithe disinterest.

Rice notes that in the current "transition phase," Trump's people have denied the Biden team access to intelligence briefings with respect to national security threats, COVID-19, and related economic issues.
