GOP senators question 'unusual' message Susan Rice sent herself on Inauguration Day

Source: The Hill




BY OLIVIA BEAVERS - 02/12/18 05:39 PM EST

Two top Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee are questioning former national security adviser Susan Rice about an "unusual" message she sent to herself on Jan 20, 2017 President Trump's Inauguration Day.

Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) and Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) questioned Rice why she sent a note detailing a conversation she observed on Jan. 5 between then-FBI Director James Comey and then-President Barack Obama.

"It strikes us as odd that, among your activities in the final moments on the final day of the Obama administration, you would feel the need to send yourself such an unusual email purporting to document a conversation involving President Obama and his interactions with the FBI regarding the Trump/Russia investigation," they wrote in a letter to Rice.

They said that in the message, Rice noted how Obama repeatedly emphasized during the meeting on Russian election hacking with Comey that he wants every aspect of the issue handled "by the book."

3. "Purporting" to document??? So they thing that documenting what was said in a meeting is suspicious?

When the Dems take over Congress again, please go through every single email in the Trump admin. And to think that Obama simply decided to not investigate Bush for the Iraq war so that the country could move forward.

5. Not unusual at all.

Most people document events or conversations they want to remember in detail as soon as possible, while they're still fresh in their minds. Doing it by emailing oneself is just one method, which would be easier in that setting than pen and paper.

Only reTHUGs would project this way, thinking it suspicious or nefarious, mainly because everything they do IS suspicious and nefarious.

6. They already know she must be guilty of something

They just can't figure out what it is yet. But they'll keep looking until they find something, don't worry.

8. Rice is smart and Grassley is so partisan that he thinks he can "win" against her.

She'll eat him alive.
