Senators reviewing Rice's 'by the book' email

Senators reviewing Rice's 'by the book' email

Grassley and Graham have referred Steele for criminal charges and have focused much of the Senate probe into Russian election interference on the FBI and other officials' handling of the investigation into possible connections between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin. We have a strict line and always have maintained it. To me the email cries of "nobody here but us chickens".

That was attached to a letter to Rice sent by Chuck Grassley and Lindsey Graham, co-authors of the Judiciary Committee memo that corroborated key details in the Devin Nunes memo about the Federal Bureau of Investigation relying on the Steele dossier to get a FISA warrant on Carter Page.

The senators followed up on the revelation with a list of 12 questions directed at Rice. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) and Lindsey Graham (R-SC) on Monday, looked like "an effort by Susan Rice to reconstruct history". Third, Obama said he didn't want to interfere with anything from a law enforcement perspective.

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

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".

"In addition, despite your claim that President Obama repeatedly told Mr. Comey to proceed 'by the book, ' substantial questions have arisen about whether officials at the Federal Bureau of Investigation, as well as at the Justice Department and the State Department, actually did proceed 'by the book, '" the senators added.

Napolitano noted that Obama himself to Fox's Chris Wallace in 2016 that he didn't speak to anyone at the Department of Justice about any campaign-related investigations.

However, that January 6, 2017 meeting with Trump is referred to in Comey's congressional testimony. Trump had just been sworn in as president minutes before. It was paid for by 2016 Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton and the Democratic National Committee, which she controlled. 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.

Was she aware of the FISA warrant on Carter Page?

The judge also speculated to Fox News' Martha MaCallum that Rice wanted make it appear that Barack Obama "was ignorant of the fray fomented by his administration to undermine the incoming president and his hands were absolutely clean". "Comey said he would". As the email notes, Obama was concerned that there might be reasons why certain classified information would need to be withheld from Team Trump.

Obama, Comey and the top national security officials talked about sharing information related to Russian Federation with the incoming Trump administration.

When President Obama traded five senior Taliban commanders for Army deserter Bowe Berghdahl, Rice misled the public, claiming that he served with "honor and distinction".

The Obama administration also reached the so-called 123 Agreement, which made it easier for US and Russian firms to form joint ventures.
