White House: New Susan Rice Email 'Raises a Lot of Serious Questions'
Feb 15, 2018, 01:29
According to that email's timestamp and header, it was written by former national security advisor Susan Rice and sent to herself at 12:15 p.m. on January 20, 2017-right around the time Donald Trump was inaugurated as president.
The meeting, which also included then Vice President Joe Biden as well as former FBI Director James Comey and Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates, reportedly covered the topic of what information about the Russian Federation investigation could be shared with Trump's transition team.
"It strikes us as odd that, among your activities in the final moments on the final day of the Obama administration, you would feel the need to send yourself such an unusual email purporting to document a conversation involving President Obama and his interactions with the FBI regarding the Trump/Russia investigation", the senators said to Rice.
A newly-discovered email suggests former FBI Director James Comey may have been less than honest about his meetings with former president Barack Obama on the subject of Russian interference with and during the 2016 general election.
Fox News ran with the story for the majority of the day, claiming the texts "are raising even more questions about what the FBI and former President Obama knew the Clinton investigation".
The email has raised interest among congressional investigators because it was sent on Rice's last day in office, January 20, 2017, and appeared to frame the meeting in a particular way. Rice. And it explained that President Obama had held a briefing on January 5 regarding supposed Trump-Russia collusion. Grassley and Sen. Graham have raised. Did Susan Rice know that the warrant application included a dossier from Mr. [Christopher] Steele when he was on the payroll of the Democratic Party, coming from Russian sources that he was a political operative being paid by the Democratic Party, and that the information in the FISA warrant application was a dossier that was political in nature and that Mr. Steele hated. candidate Trump. It will be fascinating to see if Rice bothers to answer the questions.
That was attached to a letter to Rice sent by Chuck Grassley and Lindsey Graham, co-authors of the Judiciary Committee memo that corroborated key details in the Devin Nunes memo about the Federal Bureau of Investigation relying on the Steele dossier to get a FISA warrant on Carter Page. All by the book!
Rice, herself, as well as then-Vice President Joe Biden, were also present for the meeting.
There seem to be only a couple reasons why Rice might have chose to pen such an email. As she prepared to leave the White House, Rice sent the email as an eternal testament to the Obama White House's regard for process.
Or perhaps it was just a dumb, pointless email, which acquired its apparent memo-to-the-file resonance only as an unfortunate coincidence.
Rice said that Obama then asked about how to proceed, given national security concerns about the investigation.
