Former national security adviser Susan Rice is not trustworthy, and investigations must happen into the possible unmasking of Americans under surveillance, David Bossie, president of Citizens United, said Thursday.
"These are criminal acts by somebody who we know has a history of not telling the truth. Susan Rice cannot be believed," Bossie told Fox News' "Fox & Friends" program.
"She is somebody who needs to be investigated. She needs a subpoena. She needs to be deposed. She needs to go before the congressional hearing, before the intelligence committees in the House and the Senate.
"And I want to see if there's going to be a grand jury convened for this, because somebody needs to go to jail for what happened during this transition," he added. "It's going to be interesting to see what other names are unmasked."
As a former chief investigator for Congress, Bossie continued, "This is ripe for a congressional investigation. I kind of wish I was back in my old spot, because I'd be issuing a lot of subpoenas over these last few days."
Bossie, a former member of President Donald Trump's transition team, slammed the Obama administration.
"What the Obama administration did over the eight years, whether it was investigating conservative groups, using the IRS as leverage, we know that they will do a whole host of really bad things for America and for the American people."
Trump's transition team was doing their job, Bossie continued, "we were doing the right thing for President Trump during the campaign, and we were doing the right thing for America during the transition, trying to build the government from scratch."
"It would be a real shame if the Obama administration was using that for political advantage," he added.
