(RightWing.org) – In a bizarre twist to the rioting that’s ravaged America over the weekend, a former senior official in the Obama administration has tried to resurrect the specter of Russian interference.
Susan Rice, who served as National Security Adviser from 2013 to 2017, told CNN Sunday the anti-capitalism riots allegedly sparked by the death of George Floyd are “right out of the Russian playbook.” She claimed she wouldn’t be surprised if Russia was funding the disorder.

Naturally, Rice didn’t produce any evidence to back up her claims. However, she was part of an emerging pattern as Democrats worked to blame the devastation on “white supremacists” or, in the words of Minneapolis mayor Jacob Frey, “out of state instigators, and possibly even foreign actors.”
Meanwhile, local media reporting shows 86% of those arrested in Minneapolis are from the city’s metro area.
