A new Rasmussen poll finds that 50% of likely voters want Congress or the FBI to investigate allegations that Obama Administration officials abused our nation's intelligence apparatus to spy on political opponents and leak damaging information to the media. Another poll finds that 53% of voters feel that leaking classified information to the media is an act of treason.
Judicial Watch has been trying to find out the extent to which former National Security Advisor Susan Rice was involved in exposing the identities of American citizens who were caught up in foreign surveillance. But recently the group received a notice from the NSA saying it didn't have any records to turn over. Here we go again. . .
According to the NSA, Obama Administration records have been given to the Obama Presidential Library, and, "under the Presidential Records Act, presidential records remain closed to the public for five years after an administration has left office."
If members of an administration can commit potential crimes and hide the evidence in a library for five years, we've got big problems. This may be litigated in the courts, but we can't predict with any certainty how such a lawsuit might turn out or how long it could take.
