The White House charges that it was Rice who may have abused her power as President Barack Obama's national security adviser and effectively snooped on Trump's presidential transition.
Trump made the accusation in an interview with The New York Times and would not say if he reviewed new intelligence to support his claim.
At the same time, he also praised Fox News' Bill O'Reilly, whose show The O'Reilly Factor has been shedding advertisers this week after a Times report revealed he or the company had made payments to five women who had accused him of sexual harassment or other inappropriate behavior.
"Well I think the American people have a right to know what was going on". In an interview Tuesday with MSNBC, she said: "The allegation is that somehow the Obama administration officials utilized intelligence for political purposes".

When asked whether Rice, who has denied leaking the names of Trump associates under surveillance by US intelligence agencies, had committed a crime, the president said, "Do I think?"
Rice served as the national security adviser to President Barack Obama from 2013 to 2017 and was one of several senior national security officials authorized to request the identity of US persons who appear in classified intelligence reports. And did anyone on his staff have access to this information, as well.
