Trump tells newspaper Obama aide might have broken the law

Michael Flynn was forced out as National Security Adviser after it was reported in the press that he had mislead Vice President Mike Pence, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation about talking to the Russian ambassador, and that those discussions included sanctions imposed by the Obama administration.

But Rice did not say if the individuals whose identities she requested included Mr. Trump or any of his campaign aides. "It's such an important story for our country and the world".

Since Monday, when Eli Lake broke the story at Bloomberg News, the nation has been riveted by the report that Rice asked that the identities of various US citizens, "incidentally" swept up by one or more of America's alphabet soup of intelligence services, be "unmasked".

Did she seek the identities of Trump folks exclusively for intelligence reasons, or did she have political motivations?

Ambassador Susan E. Rice was President Barack Obama's national security advisor. "The effort to ask for the identity of an American citizen is necessary to understand the importance of an intelligence report in some instances".

Lake's article in Bloomberg News conceded, "Rice's unmasking requests were likely within the law".

And Rice didn't help matters by, in an interview two weeks ago, appearing to deny knowledge of Trump associates being wrapped up in incidental surveillance of foreigners. "I don't think Bill did anything wrong".

The day after FBI Director James Comey confirmed the FBI investigation of potential ties between Russian Federation and the Trump campaign last month, Nunes announced to reporters that the communications of members of Trump's transition team were caught up in the surveillance.

In addition, since last summer, intelligence agencies have been investigating Russia's interference in the 2016 election, including its role in hacking into Democratic email systems and distributing stolen communications and possible coordination with the Trump campaign. Last week Trump said that Flynn, who resigned in February, should seek an immunity deal.

"No surprise from Fox News, and no surprise, it does not support the president's claim that the Obama administration spied on him", Lemon said.

Rice told MSNBC's Andrea Mitchell that she was sometimes asked for the identities of Americans which had previously been redacted; however, she added her job was never used for any political gain.

Rice certainly wasn't politically naive about the political uses of intelligence information.

Trump, asked by the Times, if he believed Rice committed a crime, responded, "Do I think?".
