White House: New Susan Rice Email 'Raises a Lot of Serious Questions'

Susan Rice

The message, which includes redactions, features a January 5 meeting between Rice, President Obama and Vice President Joe Biden, along with former FBI Director James Comey and Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates. 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.

It is really quite striking that this email raises suspicion about Rice or James Comey or former President Obama or frankly anyone else.

February 13, 2018 (EIRNS)-Barack Obama's personal role in directing the British intelligence operation run against candidate and President-elect Donald Trump, through the dossier issued by "ex" MI6 agent Christopher Steele, is now on the table, through a letter sent to Obama National Security Advisor Susan Rice by Senators Chuck Grassley and Lindsey Graham of the Judiciary Committee on February 8 and released yesterday.

Judge Andrew Napolitano reacted to revelations that Obama administration adviser Susan Rice sent an "unusual email" to herself on President Donald Trump's inauguration day.

"Did anyone instruct, request, suggest, or imply that you should send yourself the aforementioned Inauguration Day email memorializing President Obama's meeting with Mr. Comey about the Trump/Russia investigation?"

Or was the email Rice addressed to herself not actually for herself?

Napolitano noted that Obama himself told Fox's Chris Wallace in 2016 that he didn't speak to anyone at the Department of Justice about any campaign-related investigations. The investigation was first used, through selective leaks, to cast a shadow over Trump's presidential run, and later in an attempt to force him out of office through impeachment. The meeting also reportedly centered on the Steele dossier, which has been exposed as an extensive opposition research project subsidized by the Democrats and the Hillary Clinton campaign and executed by a research firm-Fusion GPS-who hired a former British spy to get dirt on Trump.

The origins of the Russian Federation meddling probe have come under mounting scrutiny on Capitol Hill, where Republicans are looking at how an unverified anti-Trump dossier was used to seek a surveillance warrant against Trump associate Carter Page in late 2016.

Sens. Grassley and Graham posted statements to their websites saying they "were struck by the context and timing of this email, and [they] sent a follow up letter to Ambassador Rice". A House Intelligence Committee memo released on February 2 shows that the Federal Bureau of Investigation and DOJ hid the source and financiers of the allegations contained in the dossier from the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court-a criminal offense.

Or perhaps Rice left the meeting feeling jittery about the White House's involvement in an investigation concerning a successor Obama had repeatedly said was unfit for office.

Rice continued, saying, "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".

"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", she wrote, according to the Daily Mail.
