Trump tells newspaper Obama aide might have broken the law
Rice previously called allegations that she requested the unmasking of Trump campaign and transition members for political reasons "absolutely false". Those names are redacted and minimized, or "masked", to protect the privacy of American citizens, permanent residents and other entities caught up in the legal surveillance of foreigners.
How does incidental collection occur? The list of unmasked individuals reportedly reached authorities at the National Security Council, as well as individuals at the Defense Department and the Central Intelligence Agency. Because they're US citizens, there names are typically edited out.
What happens to this information?
It's unclear if the information Nunes received is the same as the materials involving Rice.
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. The American public will never forgive her for her assertions on five Sunday morning television news shows in 2012 that the deaths of four Americans in Benghazi was in response to an anti-Muslim video.
How does this pertain to Rice?
In an interview Tuesday, Rice denied any wrongdoing.
Her efforts may draw parallels to former President Nixon's efforts to spy on his political opponents. As the national security adviser, Rice would have been authorized to seek identities of people whose names were redacted from intelligence reports.
Trump and his conservative supporters claimed at least partial vindication on their claims of Obama administration meddling.
No, and Trump provided none. Nunes has provided limited details about the information he obtained, but said there are "dozens of reports" showing that "incidentally collected information about US citizens involved in the Trump transition" was gathered during the course of "normal foreign surveillance".
Understand: There would have been no intelligence need for Susan Rice to ask for identities to be unmasked. "I don't know how people continue to believe her".
Citing no evidence, President Donald Trump on Wednesday accused his predecessor's national security adviser of breaking the law, one month after he accused former President Barack Obama of illegally wiretapping him.
"If true, these are extremely serious allegations, that basically Susan Rice, according to these allegations was unmasking or making known the names of Americans whose names appeared surveillance of foreign officials".
