O'Reilly: 'Huge Scandal' If Susan Rice Helped Dem Party During Election
In his Talking Points Memo, Bill O'Reilly said that if Susan Rice unmasked names of Trump associates in order to aid the Democratic Party during the 2016 election, it would be a "huge scandal."
But O'Reilly cautioned that speculation is often the "enemy of justice" and that Americans must know the facts of the case before making claims about it.
He asked rhetorically whether the powerful people in Washington want to know the truth about any alleged scandal.
O'Reilly noted that former IRS official Lois Lerner pleaded the Fifth during the probe into allegations that the IRS singled out conservative groups.
O'Reilly said that if Rice is subpoenaed before Congress, she, like Lerner, will likely plead the Fifth.
He criticized Mother Jones' David Corn for pulling the race card on the Rice affair, but said Rice is entitled to a presumption of innocence nonetheless.
He said that similarly, answers have not been provided in both the probe into Trump-Russia collusion or Rice's situation.
