President Trump took aim Wednesday at Susan E. Rice, a national security adviser under President Obama, saying he thinks she committed a crime by using U.S. intelligence agencies to spy on Trump campaign officials.
Mr. Trump said the actions by Ms. Rice, who requested that the National Security Agency “unmask” the identities of Mr. Trump’s associates and perhaps Mr. Trump himself when they were swept up in surveillance efforts against Russian officials, was “one of the big stories of our time.”
“I think it’s going to be the biggest story,” Mr. Trump said in an interview with The New York Times. “It’s such an important story for our country and the world. It is one of the big stories of our time.”
The newspaper pressed Mr. Trump on whether he thought Ms. Rice broke the law.
“Do I think? Yes, I think,” he responded.
