House Intel Committee Member on Susan Rice Probe: ‘This Is Now a Full-Blown Investigation’
Free Beacon by
Free Beacon by The House and Senate Intelligence Committees are expanding their investigations into former National Security Adviser Susan Rice's alleged "unmasking" of U.S. persons who were incidentally collected in surveillance of foreign officials.
An unnamed member of the House Intelligence Committee confirmed that Rice is now under "a
full-blown investigation," Fox News reported on Wednesday.
"We will be performing an accounting of all unmasking for political purposes focused on the previous White House administration. This is now a full-blown investigation," the committee member said.
While she was national security advisor, Rice reportedly requested the names of US persons associated with the Trump campaign who were incidentally collected while monitoring foreign officials, according to Bloomberg‘s Eli Lake. Critics concerned about Rice's behavior are focused on whether she attempted to unmask Trump campaign officials for political purposes.
