Rep. Ron DeSantis (FL-06), Chairman of the National Security Subcommittee, issued the following statement regarding reports that Susan Rice requested the identities of Trump campaign and transition team members referenced in intelligence reports:

"The purported 'unmasking' of the identities of members of the Trump transition team for political purposes is a serious charge that needs a thorough examination. That Obama National Security Adviser Susan Rice is alleged to have been responsible for this unmasking is troubling given her history of deceit and her close relationship with then-President Obama.  Congress needs to get to the bottom of this and the FBI should be investigating whether any laws were broken.  We need to know whether the material gleaned from the Rice unmasking is the material fed to the media in an attempt to do political damage to the Trump administration and, if so, who was responsible for leaking it."
