Both Obama and Senate Intelligence Committee Chairwoman Dianne Feinstein have defended Rice, arguing she was using the best intelligence supplied to her at the time.
Under the Constitution, only the Senate has the power to give advice and consent to the administration on nominees. But the wet-brained republicans like Lummis and her racist friends think they won the election. How in God's name anyone could vote for Lummis is beyond me, as she is a living and breathing sockpuppet, doing whatever her master's tell her to do. The woman is incapable of an original thought, but sure loves her farm subsides and BLM leases!
