Susan Rice was entitled to ask that the names of Trump’s transition team members be unmasked as part of her role in the government, but when she revealed their identities, it could now be considered “espionage.”
That’s what Judge Napolitano says: It’s “espionage.”
It’s plain and simple.
“It depends on what she did with the information she unmasked,” the Fox News legal analyst told the “Fox & Friends” program, after he was asked if Rice broke any laws.
Here is what he said below:
“IF SHE NEEDS TO KNOW TO WHOM THE AMBASSADOR WAS SPEAKING, IN ORDER TO UNDERSTAND THE CONVERSATION, SHE CAN DO THAT,” SAID NAPOLITANO. “CAN SHE REVEAL THE IDENTITY OF THE AMERICAN FOR A PURPOSE OTHER THAN NATIONAL SECURITY? ABSOLUTELY NOT.”
Then Juge Napolitano took it further:
If Rice had gotten the names and then passed them on to Obama by saying, “By the way, guess what Trump and Manafort were talking about last night” then that would be considered “espionage.”
If this is true, then Susan Rice is going to be in big problem and this is going to finally make steps to drain the swamp.
