Kris Paronto, one of the heroes of Benghazi, joined the "Fox & Friends" co-hosts this morning to react to the bombshell Susan Rice unmasking report.

Rice, former national security advisor for President Obama, reportedly sought to unmask the identities of individuals associated with President Trump whose information was "incidentally collected" in intelligence reports.

Responding to the accusation, Rice said in an MSNBC interview on Tuesday that she "absolutely" did not order the unmasking of individuals for political purposes. She also suggested that sometimes such a request would be necessary for an investigation.

"She has no credibility," Paronto said. "I don't know how people continue to believe her."

Paronto explained that it's very suspect Rice seems to have changed her story, as she had previously claimed she knew "nothing" about the intelligence reports.

"Double-talk, half-truths, that's still lies," Paronto said. "Within the veterans' community, within Rangers, SEALs, Marines, there's no such thing as a half-truth. It's a lie [or] it's not a lie."

He said this is a golden opportunity for President Trump to crack down and "make an example" of a corrupt government bureaucrat.

"President Trump's been given an opportunity here to set a precedent and stop this."
