White House: Susan Rice Clearly 'Didn't Operate By The Book'
Feb 15, 2018, 01:23
"6. Other than that email, did you document the January 5, 2017 meeting in any way, such as contemporaneous notes or a formal memo?"
The day following that January 5 meeting where the four leaders of the intelligence community-Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, CIA Director John Brennan, NSA Director Adm. Mike Rogers and Comey-officially presented Obama with the Steele dossier, the same four briefed President-elect Trump at Trump Tower on the alleged Russian interference in the 2016 elections.
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.
The email stands in sharp contrast with public statements made by the former president, who claims to have not been involved in the FBI's investigations into Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton.
Now, the Republicans want Rice to explain her email.
Comey testified under oath before the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence on June 8, 2017, and he may have intentionally failed to disclose the encounter with Obama just before Trump took office.
US Crude Output Rises to 10 Million/BPD
Saudi output probably averaged 10 million a day last month and Russian Federation pumped an estimated 10.98 million a day in 2017. At home, the export boom has filled pipelines and sparked a surge of investment in new shipping infrastructure on the Gulf Coast.
Rice's email to herself noted a meeting attended by former President Barack Obama, former Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey, former DOJ official Sally Yates and former Vice President Joe Biden.
The other portions are classified, but it seems as if Comey agreed to keep Obama in the loop on the possible shielding of information on Russian Federation from incoming Trump officials.
At the end of her email describing the meeting, the former national security adviser wrote 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".
The great mystery in the email (apart from the missing classified section, of course) is why Rice felt the urge to write it 15 days after the meeting occurred.
She added, "The President asked Comey to inform him if anything changes in the next few weeks that should affect how we share classified information with the incoming team. Comey said he would".
Graham and Grassley hope to verify the timeline of events, and sent a letter to Rice asking how it pertains to the Russian Federation dossier.

During his appearance on "The Story With Martha MacCallum", Graham said, "W$3 e know the investigation regarding the Trump campaign was anything but by the book".
Napolitano said Rice's comments in the email, released by Sens. As more evidence comes out surrounding the FBI's use of opposition research paid for by the Clinton campaign in the Steele Dossier to acquire a Foreign Intelligence Service Act (FISA) warrant to snoop on members of the Trump campaign in the last month of the 2016 election, this email seems especially damning.
"When you look at what happened, it was an abuse of power, not 'by the book, '" Graham said. Do you have any reason to dispute the timestamp of the email? Grassley and Graham asked Rice in their letter.
According to Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley and Sen.
Thousands of text messages obtained by the DOJ Inspector General reveal that the lead Federal Bureau of Investigation agent on both the Clinton and Trump cases, Peter Strzok, and a high-ranking Federal Bureau of Investigation lawyer, Lisa Page, had a clear bias in favor of Clinton and against Trump.
