WASHINGTON, D.C. On Tuesday Susan Rice denied that she improperly handled classified intelligence while serving as former President Barack Obama’s national security adviser.”There was no spreadsheets, there was nothing of the sort,” Rice told MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell Tuesday in her first televised interview since the story broke.”I leaked nothing to nobody, and never have and never would,” she said.White House spokesman Sean Spicer would not comment on the Rice development but did criticize the press corp for their coverage.”The more we learn that there was clearly something there,” he said, “there is an immediate attempt to defend actions like that on one side of the aisle, and an immediate rush to judgement on the other.””This is a big deal,” Sen. Rand Paul said on MSNBC Tuesday morning. “If the outgoing administration was actually, literally sifting through things and part of the administration already said we were going to get as much information, we were going to scatter it out there publicly to try and harm the Trump administration.”Some Republican lawmakers called this week for Rice to be subpoenaed to testify before a congressional committee.
