    US House of Representatives minority leader Nancy Pelosi said in a press briefing on Thursday that President Donald Trump should release any evidence he has that former White House National Security Advisor Susan Rice committed a crime.

    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — In an interview on Wednesday, Trump said he thought Rice broke the law if she revealed the names of Trump associates who were under surveillance by US intelligence agencies.

    "That claim is totally unfounded," Pelosi stated.

    "Mr. President, declassify the basis of your comment."

    On Monday, US media reported that Rice asked US intelligence agencies to unmask the names of the Trump associates covered during the surveillance. Rice has been accused of making the request for political reasons, which she has denied.
