Susan Rice, former President Obama's national security adviser, dodged a question Tuesday on her willingness to testify before Congress over reports that she sought several times to "unmask" the identities of U.S. persons in intelligence reports linked to President Trump's transition and campaign.
"[Sen.] Rand Paul is suggesting that you be subpoenaed to testify," MSNBC host Andrea Mitchell said to Rice. "Would you be willing to go to Capitol Hill?"
"Andrea, let's see what comes. I'm not going to sit here and prejudge," Rice responded.
Rice then shifted the conversation from a possible subpoena to discuss the ongoing investigations into Russia's interference in the 2016 presidential election.
"What I will say is that the investigations that are underway as to the Russian involvement in our electoral process are very important," Rice said. "They are very serious, and every American ought to have an interest in those investigations going wherever the evidence indicates they should."
"I have an interest in that as an American citizen. As a former U.S. official, I would want to be helpful in that process if I could," she added.
Rice's answer on potentially testifying came after former and current Trump aides volunteered last week to testify in the coming weeks on the probes into potential contacts between the Trump campaign and Russian officials.
