Susan Rice Email Puts Obama in Crosshairs of Muellergate

It occurred during President Trump's inauguration.

'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,"' Rice wrote. That meeting concerned potential Russian collusion with the Trump campaign and was attended, according to Rice's email, by President Obama and senior Department of Justice officials, including then-FBI director James Comey and then-deputy attorney general Sally Yates.

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 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".

A source familiar with the content of the meeting that it had nothing to do with Steele nor the dossier, but rather how the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the intelligence community had to handle relations with the Trump transition team in light of the Russian Federation probe.

The email also corroborates text messages sent between Federal Bureau of Investigation agents working on the Clinton and Trump cases, that Obama "wants to know everything we're doing".

Sens. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) and Lindsey Graham (R-S.C) called on Rice this week to explain what they described as an "unusual" email she sent insisting that former President Barack Obama wanted to make sure the investigation into Russian meddling was done "by the book". 'Comey said he would'.

Phoenix are suffering contrasting fortunes, having lost five in a row after a 113-123 defeat at the hands of the Nuggets. With forward Jordan Bell still out with a left ankle injury, Kevon Looney will likely get the start Monday night.

The meeting was revealed in an email sent by Rice to herself on Inauguration Day.

Perhaps Rice simply left the meeting with Obama and Comey aglow with pride over her colleagues' strong conviction that, no matter how they felt personally about the election of Donald Trump, they would never allow their personal feelings to overrule their duty to wield their power responsibly, following all appropriate investigative procedures.

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". Rice also wrote of the January 5 meeting: "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".

New revelations, however, show that the FBI's investigation was in large part based on unverified opposition research material paid for by the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee.

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.

Then-National Security Adviser Susan Rice is seen on the South Lawn of the White House in Washington on July 7, 2016. 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.
