The questions of leaks from the White House are good questions, but the main focus should be on what Russia was doing during the 2016 election and who was involved on the American side, Sen. Dick Durbin said Tuesday, while putting accusations that former national security adviser Susan Rice leaked information "in the same category of the wiretapping of Trump Tower."

"It was totally false, even Republicans concede it was false," the Illinois Democrat told MSNBC's Andrea Mitchell, after Rice wrapped up an interview on the "Andrea Mitchell Reports" program. 

During the interview, Rice said she "leaked nothing to nobody," while insisting her requests to unmask names of persons involved in President Donald Trump's transition team from surveillance tapes involving foreign interests was done in the name of national security, not politics.

"Now comes the question of was there a leak of information when it came to unmasking the identity of people," said Durbin.

"It is a good question, but not the central question. What were the Russians doing and who was involved on the American side, we ought to get out before the American people as quickly as possible."
