Back in 2019, Joe Biden was claiming there had been no scandals in the Obama administration. David Harsanyi reminded readers of The Federalist by listing a litany of scandals Biden had forgotten about.
One notable scandal concerned Susan Rice, who had been caught lying to the entire country on television. Now Biden is considering Rice as a potential pick for his running mate. Harsanyi wrote of that ordeal:
Biden might not remember that Internal Revenue Service leadership aggressively targeted conservative groups to undermine their voice in elections. The IRS admitted as much in an apology letter.
Then there was Obama national security advisor Susan Rice, who went on national television and claimed that terrorist attacks against Americans at Benghazi were a “spontaneous reaction” to “hateful and offensive video,” even when she knew it was a sophisticated and pre-planned terror attack. Defenders of free expression were nowhere to be found as the maker of the video was conveniently thrown into jail.
