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?”

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?"
