A three-year-old interview clip of former National Security Adviser Susan Rice resurfaced Tuesday after the declassified email she sent to herself on the final day of the Obama administration was released.

During an April 2017 appearance on PBS News Hour, Rice was asked about the then-breaking revelations about members of President Trump’s transition team having been surveilled before he took office.

The article goes on to state the following:

“In the last few hours, we’ve been following a disclosure by the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, Devin Nunes, that in essence, during the final days of the Obama administration, during the transition after President Trump had been elected, that he and the people around him may have been caught up in surveillance of foreign individuals and their identities may have been disclosed. Do you know anything about this?” PBS anchor Judy Woodruff asked.

Rice responded, “I know nothing about this. I was surprised to see reports from Chairman Nunes on that count today.”

Rice referred to President Trump’s allegation that the Obama administration had wiretapped his campaign. She claimed that “no president, no White House can order the surveillance of another American citizen. That can only come from the Justice Department with the approval of a FISA court.”

Ah… but here’s the email she wrote herself, with details on an Oval Office meeting on Jan. 5, 2017:
