Trump tells newspaper Obama aide might have broken the law

Democrat and Republican lawmakers continue to say no evidence supports this claim.

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. In an interview with MSNBC on Tuesday, she refuted the allegation that she has or ever would leak classified information.

An April 3 Daily Caller report that Rice ordered us spy agencies to produce "detailed spreadsheets" of legal phone calls involving Donald Trump and his aides when he was running for president makes this story more interesting.

The unmasked names, of people associated with Donald Trump, were then sent to all those at the National Security Council, some at the Defense Department, then-Director of National Intelligence James Clapper and then-CIA Director John Brennan - essentially, the officials at the top, including former Rice deputy Ben Rhodes.

"The intelligence community made the determination as to whether or not the identity of that American individual could be provided to me".

If an official reviewing the report wants to know the identity, the official can request that the agency that collected the information "unmask" the name.

Asked whether he believed Rice broke the law, Trump said, "Do I think?".

It remains to be seen if Rice will ever respond to Paul's requests, or if serious Congressional investigations will be launched regarding the legality of her actions.

Lawmakers probing the surveillance of key officials in the Trump campaign and administration say the intelligence agencies now nominally under the president's control are stonewalling efforts to get to the bottom of who revealed names and leaked protected information to the press. Cernovich's post was amplified by fringe "alt-right" outlets, conservative media, Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway, and the president's son Donald Trump Jr. "Burr, Sen. Warner, to conduct a bipartisan investigation of this whole episode", McConnell said.

On Tuesday, Rice adamantly defended her past requests for Americans' identities in intelligence reports, suggesting it was part of her job.

But she denies she leaked or requested names of Trump Transition officials for political purposes. What makes matters worse is that Rice is said to have disseminated or overseen the dissemination of the unmasked intelligence information throughout the government, which has reportedly been the source of leaks that have been created to undermine President Trump and his administration.

On Thursday, Nunes announced he had been the subject of accusations to the House Ethics Committee related to the White House episode, ones he called baseless.

Well, first I would try to find out if these allegations are true. He told the Times he would say more "at the right time".
