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.

Tulsi Gabbard Smashes LIES about Our Military & Conservatives | Ep 99

It's hard to put a label on former Democratic congresswoman and presidential candidate, Tulsi Gabbard. She has worked with Bernie Sanders but has also felt the fires of the Left and mainstream media for simply putting her love for this country above partisan politics. Lately, she has even sided with conservatives on issues from transgenderism to Big Tech censorship. But as much of the nation dives dangerously deep into partisan politics, Tulsi calls on Democrats to turn their talk of unity into action and joins Glenn to lead the way. Together, they ask who's defining "extremism," why are there still troops guarding the Capitol, and how long will we let our First Amendment be trampled on as Congress "bullies" conservative media outlets and the COVID-19 restrictions persist? And Tulsi shares her own experience in the military that shatters the far-left narrative that it's crawling with white supremacists.

Dr. Ben Carson's Prescription to Heal America | Ep 98

To the Left, "unity" means "destroy everyone we disagree with." But Dr. Ben Carson has another message: "We are not each other's enemies." As the Biden administration insists America is systemically racist, Dr. Carson's life proves just how far we've come. Despite facing poverty as a child, he became a renowned neurosurgeon, a candidate for president, and former secretary of Housing and Urban Development — one of the only Cabinet members to survive all four years of the Trump administration.

He joins Glenn to review his time in the administration, including as part of the White House's coronavirus task force, and how he discovered "the swamp is deeper and wider than I expected." But above all, he urges Americans to take courage and stand for our freedoms — and previews his newest venture to do just that as founder and chairman of the American Cornerstone Institute: "What version of America do we want?"
