Susan Rice Email: Obama Met With FBI/DOJ About Russia, Discussed Steele Dossier

14 February 2018

Sen. Graham called Rice's Inauguration Day email to herself "odd and disturbing".

Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) are demanding answers from former national security adviser Susan Rice about an "unusual" email that she sent herself shortly before leaving office.

Comey has never informed Congress of the January 5, 2016, meeting that included the Federal Bureau of Investigation director, President Obama, Vice President Joe Biden, National Security Adviser Susan Rice and Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates.

"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".

Top Republican senators are demanding answers from Susan Rice as a newly discovered email sheds light on possible wrongdoing by the Obama-era Federal Bureau of Investigation and DOJ. Pay close attention to the line of questioning.

According to Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley and Sen. While Democrats remain hyper-focused on the possibility - so far unproven - that the Trump campaign colluded with Russian agents to steal the election from Hillary Clinton, Republicans have shined a spotlight on what they regard as the tainted process that led to the probe.

"President Obama had a brief follow-on conversation with FBI Director Comey and Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates in the Oval Office", Rice wrote in her email, which was dated the day before Trump's inauguration.

As WND reported, talk-radio host Rush Limbaugh contends that the apparent corruption of high-ranking officials in the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Justice Department and other intelligence agencies to help Hillary Clinton during the 2016 election was all about protecting Obama.

That insurance policy, appears to have been a reference to the FBI's investigation into Trump for alleged collusion with the Russian government.

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". "He's been victimized by the Obama Administration who were using all sorts of.agencies, not just the FBI & DOJ, now the State Department to dig up dirt on him in the days leading up to the Election, '" Trump said Saturday in a pair of tweets, quoting from a Fox News interview given by Tom Fitton, the president of the conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch. At the time you wrote this email to yourself, were you aware of either the October 2016 FISA application for surveillance of Carter Page or the January 2017 renewal?

In the email, Rice wrote: "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 can not share information fully as it relates to Russian Federation".

During the meeting, did Mr. Comey or Ms. Yates mention potential press coverage of the Steele dossier? "If so, when did these occur, who participated, and what was discussed?" So in an effort to reconstruct history, she writes herself a memo: 'By the way, dear Susan Rice, don't forget that Barack Obama said "I want this done by the book".
