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 intelligence reports, 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.

Kenyans Geoffrey Kirui, Edna Kiplagat sweep titles at Boston Marathon
Rupp, a three-time Olympian making his Boston debut, was 21 seconds behind and Japan's Suguru Osako was another 30 seconds back. Marathon bombing survivor Marc Fucarile participated in the handcycle division, finishing with an unofficial time of 2:06:37.

The interview now also revealed how Mr. Trump seizes on claims of the conservative news media, from fringe outlets to Fox News, and offers a presidential stamp of approval thereby increases their reach.

So, it might not have been Putin who was meddling in our presidential election.

The Trump associates, who were incidentally mentioned on intercepted communications during the Obama administration, were not under surveillance themselves, but had been recorded while speaking with foreigners who were under surveillance by the US.

"I think he shouldn't have settled; personally I think he shouldn't have settled", said Trump. "I have to treat the accusations that are made by the Trump administration officials as serious as well until we can actually get to the bottom of this and look at the facts". Asked about allegations that she had been been involved in disseminating the names of people swept up by the intelligence investigations, she insisted that they were "absolutely false".

The list reportedly revealed the names of individuals tightly-affiliated with Trump, including the names of people related to Trump.

Trump did not repeat his claim at a White House news conference shortly after the Times interview. The president's advisers quickly embraced Nunes' revelations, but did not acknowledge at the time that the congressman had viewed the information at the White House with the help of White House officials. Nunes has said he will not step down from his position as chair of the House Intelligence Committee.
