Susan Rice sent herself an ‘unusual’ email shortly before Donald Trump was inaugurated

February 12, 2018

  According to this story Charles Grassely and Lindsey Graham are looking for some information on an email Susan Rice sent to herself on Inauguration Day. 

  Here is more:

Two top Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee are questioning former national security adviser Susan Rice about an “unusual” message she sent to herself on Jan 20, 2017 — President Trump‘s Inauguration Day.

Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) and Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) questioned Rice why she sent a note detailing a conversation she observed on Jan. 5 between then-FBI Director James Comey and then-President Barack Obama.

“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,” they wrote in a letter to Rice. 

Here is some of what was in the email:

President Obama began the conversation by stressing his continued commitment to ensuring that every aspect of this issue is handled by the Intelligence and law enforcement communities by the book. The President stressed that he is not asking about, initiating or instructing anything from a law enforcement perspective.

He reiterated that our law enforcement team needs to proceed as it normally would by the book.

From a national security perspective, however, President Obama said he wants to be sure that, as we engage with the incoming team, we are mindful to ascertain if there is any reason that we cannot share information fully as it relates to Russia.

  This seems odd to me as well. Why would Susan Rice, in what was probably her last act as a national security adviser, suddenly decide it was imperative to get it on the books that Barack Obama wanted to make sure everything in the Russia investigation was being done “by the book” and why did she wait 15 days to do so if this is on the level?

  It almost makes it look as if there was some concern that not everything was being done “by the book” and so they wanted to get something on the record where it would be found. It certainly looks like this is CYA and the fact she only emailed it to herself seems to allude to that fact.

  It is also interesting to note that Barack Obama was in contact with James Comey about the Russia investigation because he claimed he never talked to the Department of Injustice about any ongoing investigation because that is not a line to be crossed. “Full stop. Period.”

    Truth is stranger than fiction, but it is because Fiction is obliged to stick to possibilities; Truth isn’t.

      If I were betting I would be right there with you. There is no doubt the MSM found a diversion from reporting all we are learning about this investigation.
