Trump says he believes Susan Rice committed a crime

President Trump said Wednesday he believes former national security adviser Susan Rice committed a crime by seeking to "unmask" the identities of Trump associates in U.S. intelligence reports.

"Do I think? Yes, I think," Trump said when asked during an interview with the New York Times if he thinks a crime was committed by Rice.

Rice maintains she has done nothing improper.

"I think it's going to be the biggest story," Trump said. "It's such an important story for our country and the world. It is one of the big stories of our time."
