Susan Rice May Be Guilty Of A Crime

Susan Rice May Be Guilty Of A Crime

Susan Rice, national security adviser to President Barack Obama, likely will figure in congressional investigations of Russia's interference in the presidential election. We don't know precisely the question she was asked due to how the interview was edited, but PBS host Judy Woodruff led into Rice's comment by saying she asked Rice about Nunes's disclosure that Trump associates "may have been swept up in surveillance of foreigners at the end of the Obama administration". "Nothing of the sort occurred", Rice said on PBS "NewsHour" in her first interview since leaving her White House job.

Sources within the NSA said they are watching the investigation closely, with one telling Fox News, "A number of people saw a lot of very questionable stuff". There is nothing unusual, much less suspicious, about any request by Rice, said another intelligence official, especially since it could have revealed Russian intelligence contacts or agents operating in the United States.

In fact, this review is pro forma. "In terms of political manipulation of national security information, Susan Rice - in my view - has done it in the past".

Mr. Trump did not offer any evidence supporting his claim, while the current and former intelligence officials from the Democratic and Republican administrations have said they do not believe Ms. Rice's actions were unlawful.

When asked whether Rice, who has denied leaking the names of Trump associates under surveillance by US intelligence agencies, had committed a crime, the president said, "Do I think?"

Rice reportedly tried to learn the identities of officials on Trump's transition team whose conversations with foreign officials may have been incidentally collected during routine intelligence-gathering operations.

Bloomberg reporter Eli Lake confirmed this in a bombshell April 3 report in which he said the demasked reports "contained valuable political information on the Trump transition". This week on Twitter, Trump called attention to a link on the Drudge Report, a conservative website, that described Rice as having ordered "spy docs" on him.

Leaking classified information can be a criminal offense, which Rice denied doing - "I leaked nothing to nobody", she told MSNBC.

Members of Congress looking into allegations the Obama administration spied on Trump should make the Rice allegations their top priority.

Rice's denials don't add up.

Majority members on the House and Senate committees could call Rice, or other people from her era, to testify as Democrats seek Trump campaign aides.

Two weeks ago, she insisted she knew "nothing about this" and was "surprised to see reports" about unmasked information.

Rice is responsible for unmasking the identities of multiple Trump presidential campaign and transition team officials caught up in intelligence data gathered by USA agencies, according to Eli Lake of Bloomberg, citing unnamed us officials.

Despite determined efforts by the mainstream media to stamp out this story, the smoke of this scandal continues to grow.

In his statement, Nunes characterized the Rice eavesdropping storyline as the most urgent thread to follow.
