GOP member of House Intelligence Committee claims 'unmasked' reports were detailed
Without evidence or justification, President Donald Trump on Wednesday accused former National Security Adviser Susan Rice of breaking the law by requesting access to the censored names of his associates included in incidental surveillance of foreign targets.
Some of Trump's supporters say Rice's actions prove the president's previous claims that he was wiretapped at Trump Tower by the Obama administration.
Rice on Tuesday denied inappropriately asking for the names of Trump associates to be identified in raw intelligencereports, which allies of President Trump have charged was politically motivated.
Rice, who served as national security adviser under former President Barack Obama, went on on to say it's not uncommon to request the identities of Americans who have been caught on intelligence surveillance. And making the story about Rice not only allows the White House to change the subject from what involvement Trump's campaign aides may have had in the Russian intelligence services' attempts to influence last year's election. She admitted she sometimes asked for the names of citizens whose identities were deleted from her daily intelligence briefings to ensure she fully understood the context of the information she was given.
Rice also denied that she leaked information to the press, saying "I leaked nothing to nobody".
This time it's Susan Rice, the former national security advisor who's been a hot topic stemming from the wiretapping scandal seemingly whipped from thin air.
