Susan Rice’s Email Raises Questions About Obama’s Part in Russiagate. Here’s What It Said

Former Obama administration national security adviser, Susan Rice, is being questioned by Sens. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) and Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) regarding an “odd and disturbing” email she sent sent to herself on President Donald Trump’s inauguration day.

Remind me about the email

Rice’s email documents a high-level meeting that took place on Jan. 5, 2017, with President Barack Obama and several members of the intelligence community, during which Obama stressed that he was committed to a “by the book” investigation into Russian election-hacking … several times over.

The email raises a number of questions. First, why would Rice send an email to herself — regarding a meeting that took place weeks earlier — on the day Trump was sworn into office? In fact, the email was sent about 25 minutes after Obama and his team, including Rice, were officially out of the White House.

Also, why would Obama go out of his way to tell the FBI to conduct their investigation “by the book”? Shouldn’t the FBI’s investigations always done by the book?

The plot thickens…

Curiously, on the exact same day that Obama was supposedly directing his team to play “by the book,” NBC received leaked information about Russia investigation by “two top intelligence officials with direct knowledge.”

“Did those two top intelligence officials simply not hear what Obama said?” Glenn asked on the show. “Did they take his comments another way? Or did Obama actually tell them to do something altogether different? Well, Susan Rice was very clear – he said it twice, ‘by the book.'”

Then on Jan. 10, 2017, the full Steele dossier was leaked. We now know that the dossier was paid for by Hillary Clinton and the DNC, and then used by the FBI and DNC to request a FISA surveillance warrant to spy on then-candidate Trump. Get the details on the FISA fiasco here.

And then here was that NYT story

Glenn recalled a story in the New York Times dated March 1, 2017, which revealed that parts of the Obama administration were purposely inserting information into meetings and documents that they knew would be archived.

“Was the ‘insurance policy’ actually a coordinated leak operation of opposition research bought and paid for by the Hillary Clinton and DNC campaign?” asked Glenn. “Was the email from Susan Rice a last-ditch effort at covering their tracks?”

Watch the video clip above to get Glenn’s take on the latest developments in the Russia investigation.

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?
