Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said late Tuesday that he backed the Senate Intelligence Committee conducting a query headed by Sens. Richard Burr (R-NC) and Mark Warner (D-VA) into former National Security Adviser Susan Rice’s handling of raw intelligence.
Rice in recent days has been in the spotlight amid reports she ordered the unmasking of American citizens’ identities in surveillance collected while she was the NSA.
“I have asked the Intelligence Committee, Sen. Burr, Sen. Warner, to conduct a bipartisan investigation of this whole episode,” McConnell said.
“They will conduct it and hopefully, in the end, we will find out what happened, and they will issue a report, I hope on a bipartisan basis. Anything related to Susan Rice or any of these other suggestions will be handled by the Intelligence Committee.”
“We look forward to receiving their report about what happened,” he added.
