Trump suggests Susan Rice might have committed crime

Rice confirmed that she requested the demasking of Americans while she was National Security Adviser.

"I think it's a massive, massive story ..."

"It's such an important story for our country and the world", Trump added.

Trump made the accusation in an interview with The New York Times and would not say if he reviewed new intelligence to support his claim.

As more is discovered about the activities of Dr. Rice, many questions still remain unanswered-which means her appearance before congressional panels may be unavoidable.

But when the dust settled, Republicans did reach ground on which they feel comfortable standing: Trump and his aides apparently were swept up in legal US surveillance of foreign targets during the transition.

"My understanding, and it's from reports, not any personal knowledge, they were whether it was Susan Rice or whoever was doing it, it's my belief is that, Trump transition team...what it was is others were being monitored the foreign officials were being monitored and references they made or any information they gave Trump Transition people or people close to Donald Trump what was disseminated and that's totally improper", says King.

Rice has said asking intelligence officials for the identities of Americans listed in reports in order to better understand them is a "longstanding, established process" and told MSNBC Tuesday that allegations she or other Obama administration officials used intelligence for political purposes "absolutely false".

Or maybe it's not sexism or racism, but the fact that Rice - with her clear history of dishonest public statements - has totally altered her story.

"I leaked nothing to nobody, and never have and never would", Rice told MSNBC. Rice called herself "shocked" when she saw Trump's post on Twitter that said Obama had "wiretapped" him - "It wasn't typical of the way presidents treat their predecessors", she said. The committee's chairman, Sen.

Rice has said that the pace of intelligence reports on Russian meddling increased beginning in the summer of 2016.

There is no evidence that Rice improperly requested that names be unmasked.

Senior government officials who receive highly sensitive intelligence can ask about the identity of USA persons, including their names, to get a better understanding of the intelligence.

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) first suggested that he had seen intelligence reports that contained the identities of Trump associates, including some where the names were masked but were easily identifiable. Eli Lake of Bloomberg reported the foreign officials being monitored were discussing "valuable political information" that required the identity of the people they were speaking to, or about, to be uncovered.
