William Jacobson is a law professor at Cornell University and the owner of the Legal Insurrection blog. He appeared on Newsmax TV yesterday and offered analysis of the new revelations on Susan Rice and the unmasking scandal.
Jacobson suggested that this is going to spark an investigation of the Obama administration.
Here’s part of what he said via Legal Insurrection:
Obama Admin “will become target of congressional investigation after this revelation”
What this suggests, is that while there may not necessarily have been anything illegal about Susan Rice making those requests, given her background, given how she was put out as the point person to spread the lie about the Benghazi video, that it was an attack based on a video, given her tattered history, I think that it’s very, very suspicious, and it certainly warrants additional information, additional investigation.
So I think what this all but guarantees is that there will be a dual track investigation in Congress.
On the one hand, any alleged collusion by the Trump campaign with Russia, of which there’s been no proof thus far, but also the action of the Obama administration.
I don’t see how the Obama administration does not now become a target of congressional investigation after this revelation.”
