Susan Rice Warns the Trump Campaign Could Collude with Russia Again in 2020

Former National Security Advisor Susan Rice warned on Wednesday that the Trump campaign could collude with Russia again this year to influence the outcome of the November election. Rice spoke to MSNBC’s Morning Joe about the blockbuster Senate report.

“And what we’ve learned is in much greater detail in some respects than we had coming out of the Mueller Report, the various ways in which it appears that the Trump campaign was in contact with and coordinated with Russian intelligence. And it’s quite shocking,” Rice said.

“Now, what I think is important is to fast-forward and recognize, OK, now it’s 2020, and many of these very same people are not in a campaign, they’re in power, with all of the reins of power that that entails. And now, again, we know Donald Trump has welcomed a foreign interference.”

“He said, if somebody wants to help me, I’m fine with that. And he’s asked not only Ukraine, working with his folks, he’s asked Rudy Giuliani. He’s asked the Chinese to all interfere in our election on his behalf.”

“And just within the last couple weeks, the director of national intelligence has issued what should be a very alarming report, reminding Americans that now, in 2020, the Russians uniquely, they’re posing yet again a very grave threat to the integrity of our democracy.”

“And so, we need to be vigilant and recognize that the very same people who we now know in great detail because of the Senate report, were engaging with the Russians to benefit Donald Trump in 2016 are now in a position to be doing the very same in 2020.”
