Susan Rice has had her own role in the whole Trump/Russia Russia Russia witch hunt, mostly because it was discovered that she unmasked members of the Trump Team. Not just once, not twice, but dozens of times. If you recall, her explanations for this ranged from complete denial, to mostly denial, then to claiming that it had something to do with the crown prince of UAE. (Read more here)
For a while, the focus shifted away from Susan Rice, on to other people. That is, until we learned about a really strange email that Susan Rice emailed herself, on Trump’s Inauguration Day, January 20th 2017. Her email claims to document a Jan. 5th meeting that she attended with Obama, James Comey, Dep. AG Sally Yates, and Joe Biden. Rice’s email to herself states,
“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.’ 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.”
Senators Grassley and Graham released this information yesterday, as part of their oversight investigation. You can read more about it here.
So… WHY was Susan Rice emailing herself, on Inauguration Day, about a meeting that took place 15 days prior? A few possibilities come to mind:
1. She wanted to document it, for posterity, in hopes of landing a book deal one day. (Not very likely, but probably what she will say if questioned about it.)
2. After years of lying on Sunday shows for Obama, and making a complete fool of herself on topics from Benghazi to Sgt. Bergdahl and more, could she have finally decided that she was NOT going to take the blame for Obama any more??
3. She wanted to create her own “get out of jail free card,” just in case. By creating this email, she essentially shifts the blame to Obama himself, as the ringleader.
The fact that Susan Rice made it a point to document that Obama instructed everyone to proceed as they normally would, and “by the book,” suggests that things were NOT normal, and that things were NOT being done by the book, and that there was something super fishy going on within the Obama Administration.
The cast of characters in the Jan. 5th meeting (as Susan Rice describes it, at least) is very interesting as well. There’s Obama, James Comey (FBI), Dep. AG Sally Yates (DOJ), Susan Rice (Cabinet member, National Security advisor) and Joe Biden (VP.) If you were going to get all of your ducks in a row and/or get your story straight, in case questions came up later, these would be the people to attend such a meeting. This meeting also reportedly happened right after they all met with the Intelligence Community, which brings in the CIA branch too, among other Intelligence agencies that were most likely involved.
This interesting development also backs up the texts between Peter Strzok and Lisa Page about how Obama wanted to know everything that was going on with the investigations. This email by Susan Rice now makes it crystal clear that Obama WAS involved with investigations going on, despite his blatant lies to the contrary.
Susan Rice has until Feb. 22 to answer questions submitted by Senators Grassley and Graham. No doubt, her “answers” will morph and change as the pressure mounts.
The only thing we will know FOR SURE, is that the truth will be the EXACT OPPOSITE of whatever she claims is true. SAD!
