Everyone in the Obama administration denies ever doing anything wrong, so it’s no surprise that Susan Rice follows the trend. However, President Donald Trump says that she may be guilty of a crime for trying to unmask the identities of Trump’s team during the Obama administration’s surveillance.
President Trump told Fox News on Wednesday that former national security adviser Susan Rice “may have” committed a crime by trying to unmask the identities of Trump associates caught up in surveillance reports — though the ex-Obama official contends her actions were routine and above board.
Asked directly by Fox News if Rice may have broken a law, Trump did not mince words.
”It certainly looks like she may have,” Trump said, shortly after his joint press conference with Jordan’s King Abdullah II at the White House.
The president earlier told The New York Times he thinks Rice committed a crime. A Rice spokesman told the Times in response they would not “dignify the president’s ludicrous charge with a comment.”
