Judicial Watch President: It Appears Susan Rice Was Obama's G. Gordon Liddy
Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton joined Brian Kilmeade on "Fox & Friends" this morning to discuss the potential legal fallout for Susan Rice.
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.
"If she was accessing this material and using it for improper purposes, there are all sorts of criminal laws that would have been violated," Fitton said.
He noted that many GOP lawmakers are calling for Rice to testify under oath, but he said he would go a step further.
"If she is going to be called as a witness, I would suggest the focus be on getting a grand jury going and having her testify before a grand jury," Fitton said. "That would show that we're actually serious about investigating this unprecedented violation and abuse of power by a president and his appointees."
He said it appears that Rice was Obama's G. Gordon Liddy, an undercover operative for President Richard Nixon who was convicted of conspiracy, burglary, and illegal wiretapping for his role in the Watergate scandal.
Fitton said that Rice seems to have violated the Privacy Act by improperly collecting individual's' identifiable information, which could mean prison time.
He said that it remains to be seen what Obama knew and when he knew it, but the former president must also be held accountable for his role in this scandal.
