Update on the Russia Investigation: Here’s What Susan Rice’s ‘Odd and Disturbing’ Email Revealed

Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham and Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley sent a letter Monday to former National Security Adviser, Susan Rice, asking her to explain an “unusual” email which she apparently sent to herself on Inauguration Day 2017 — her last day at work.

What did the email say?

The email seemed to document a high-level meeting that took place on January 5, 2017, in the Oval Office with then-President Barack Obama and several members of the intelligence community. They discussed how law enforcement should carry out the investigation into Russian interference with the 2016 election. Twice, the email emphasized Obama’s comments stressing he wanted to do things “by the book.”

“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. “The president stressed that he is not asking about, initiating or instructing anything from a law enforcement perspective. He reiterated that our law enforcement team needs to proceed as it normally would by the book.”

Why is that a problem?

“I think that’s odd and disturbing because we know the investigation regarding the Trump campaign was anything but by the book,” Graham told Fox News Monday night. Watch more of that report here:

Glenn had to agree with Graham on this one. Why would Obama tell the FBI to go ‘by the book’ twice in such a short amount of time? First of all, shouldn’t the FBI’s investigations always done by the book? Isn’t that a given? Secondly, we now know that nothing else about this entire Russia investigation has been done by the book.

“Why would they, in one paragraph, stress how President Obama said over and over it has to be done by the book?” Glenn asked on the show today. He added, “None of this is by the book.”

Watch Glenn’s video clip (at the top of this page) to get the full timeline of all the ways the Russia investigation has gone by anything but the book.

Bill O'Reilly: How corrupt media twisted Joe Biden Ukraine scandal onto Trump

Bill O'Reilly gives his take on whether or not President Trump DID promise or threaten the President of Ukraine for dirt on Joe Biden, and whether or not the action is grounds for impeachment. But O'Reilly explains that either way, the media has demonstrated its corruptness yet again by manipulating the story away from a scandal for Joe and Hunter, and towards a potential, rumored wrongdoing by Donald Trump.

The Fed, banks printing money to 'prevent' trouble: Recession WILL come soon

Glenn discusses the current state of the economy with author of "Zero Hour," Harry Dent. He says the federal reserve is still funding big banks daily to increase their excess reserve, signaling that something is wrong with the system. Dent says the banks printed money back in the 1930s to climb out of the Great Depression, which only created an aftershock that was even worse. Banks and the Fed are doing the same thing today, so will the coming economic crisis be worse than the 2008 recession? Economist Dent says it's possible, and that it could come as early as 2020.

Lessons from Bill and Monica: Trump, Biden, Obama, Ukraine, and corruption

Glenn says there's an important lesson we can all learn looking back on the Bill Clinton and Monica Lewinsky scandal: corruption should matter, no matter which political party is to blame. So why are Democrats and the media trying desperately to shame President Trump for alleged corrupt action, but ignoring Joe Biden's clear intention to help his son, Hunter, profit through foreign policy in the Ukraine? How do we fix such a double standard?
