Former National Security Adviser and world-champion liar Susan Rice received a nice letter from the Senate Judiciary Committee on Friday. The subject was a rather strange email that Rice sent to herself at 12:15 p.m. on January 20, 2017. Minutes before Donald Trump took the oath of office she sent herself a most curious email. It demonstrates two things. First, that Barack Obama was giving instructions to members of his administration who were being held over on how to deal with the Trump administration. Second, that James Comey is a liar if we are to believe Susan Rice who is certified liar. If you’ll recall, the Sunday following the Benghazi attack, by which time the Obama administration knew full well who was behind the attack, Susan Rice appeared on all five major Sunday shows and blamed a bogus YouTube video.
The problem is that if you cross reference this to the sworn public testimony of Mister Ethical Leadership, himself, that is to say former FBI director James Comey, you have an irresolvable conflict.
I spoke alone with President Obama twice in person (and never on the phone) – once in 2015 to discuss law enforcement policy issues and a second time, briefly, for him to say goodbye in late 2016.
Yet here we are at a meeting with Obama, Rice, Biden and acting AG Sally Yates. And the discussion is about the dossier and what they will and will not tell the incoming administration. This seems like something a note-taker like Comey would hardly miss, particularly since he’d met with President-elect Trump the previous day. There is exactly one reason that Comey lied about this, because he didn’t want to explain it and it never occurred to him that someone would document the meeting on a government device connected to a government email server.
What is becoming abundantly clear here is that Comey is a much bigger weasel than many of us ever imagined. Of course, there is always the possibility that an inveterate liar like Rice might have lied to herself just to keep in practice.
This tweet has the whole letter embedded. It is worth the read. Because this is not the only curious thing in Rice’s email.
Grassley Graham letter to Obama's former National Security Advisor Susan Rice requesting info related to a partially unclassified email sent by Rice to herself on January 20, 2017. Did the Obama admin withhold info related to Russia from the Trump Team? https://t.co/fiJuTT5Cd7 pic.twitter.com/MsZSG3RtiP
