What Did Obama Know

As Donald John Trump was being sworn in as the 45th President of the United States, Susan Rice was cleaning out her desk.  She was Barack Obama's last National Security Advisor.  Her replacement would be former Lt. General, Michael Flynn.  He was an old hand at intelligence and national security with over 30 years of military service.  Plus, Flynn had served as Obama's Director of National Intelligence, DNI, for a time.  Flynn was fired by Obama from the DNI job after Flynn disagreed publicly with his boss.  Obama tried to paint the picture that after Usama bin Laden was killed, Al Qaeda and other radical, Islamic terrorist groups were no longer a problem.  Flynn disagreed and even began warning Obama about the rise of a new group, often called ISIS or ISIL, operating in Iraq and Syria.  So, Susan Rice was emptying her desk to make way for Flynn, when she sent herself a rather peculiar email.


Susan Rice emailed herself about a meeting at the White House held on January 5, 2017.  It had been a typical national security briefing, with the heads of many intelligence and justice agencies attending.  But, as the meeting ended, Obama asked that Joe Biden, James Comey, Andrew McCabe, Sally Yates, and Susan Rice remain behind.  According to Rice's email, the focus of this post-meeting-meeting was the subject of Michael Flynn.  The question at hand was what classified material they could inform Flynn about?  Obama expressed a knowledge of how Flynn had been investigated by the FBI on being too chummy with the Russians.  Rice specified in her email on the meeting that Obama insisted that everything be done, "by the book".  

As Trump's incoming National Security Advisor, Lt Gen. Flynn would have access to a great deal of intelligence.  At some point, he would even be briefed about the FBI probes on the 2016 Trump campaign, and the probe on himself.  There were already rumors floating about that Flynn intended to be a new broom, reorganizing the 17 intelligence agencies into a more streamlined group.  Flynn would most certainly be upset once he learned just how far the FBI, and other agencies went in investigating him.  So, there was definitely a discussion on just how much Flynn should be told?

We know from text messages between the FBI's two most infamous lovers, Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, that the White House was well aware of Operations Crossfire Hurricane and Razor.  Hurricane was the probe into possible collusion between the 2016 Trump campaign and the Russian government.  Razor was the probe into Flynn's activities with Russians.  We also know from the text messages that senior FBI officials were keeping the White House informed about the progress of the probes.  This may include how officials in various intel agencies unmasking U.S. citizens mentioned in intercepted communications from representatives of foreign governments.  There seemed to have quite a bit of this unmasking, which was meant to be a rare and secret thing.  Yet, a great deal of such was underway by the Obama administration in regards to members of the Trump campaign. Even the office of UN Ambassador Samantha Powers was involved in unmasking Trump associates mentioned in foreign communications to the tune of nearly one a day throughout all of 2016.

So, why did Susan Rice email herself about the January 6th White House meeting the day she was leaving her job?  Why the, "by the book" quote attributed to Obama?  Was Rice planting a seed of an alibi to protect herself and her boss?  We now know since the House Russia probe transcripts were released that none of the top officials in the Obama administration believed that there was any evidence of wrong doing between the Trump campaign and the Russians.  Nor any evidence that Flynn had crossed a legal line.  In fact, Sally Yates, former acting Attorney General, seemed quite surprised that Barack Obama personally knew about the FBI investigations.  Investigations which even Yates thought bordered on being illegitimate.

Rice has played the role of providing alibis before.  She performed like a trained seal to protect Obama and Hillary Clinton during the Benghazi scandal.  Susan Rice went on 5 Sunday morning TV talk shows to spew the lie that some dopy You Tube video was the reason behind the terrorist attack in Benghazi, costing the lives of 4 Americans, including our ambassador to Libya.  Rice looked like a fool but fell on her sword and accepted the mission.  Obama and Hillary were caught in a lie, and Rice went along for the ride.  Now, here she was again, providing cover for her boss.  

According to Jim Jordan, there is much more in the Susan Rice email she composed on January 20, 2017.  Most of it is still classified, though, as a member of the House Intelligence Committee, Jordan has read all of it.  Jordan has alluded that there is more damning evidence in that email in regards to how the Obama administration was trying to cover up just how illegitimate the entire Russia probe was.  Even though Obama's top officials have long stated in public that there was evidence of collusion between the 2016 Trump campaign and the Russian government, the House transcripts, tell a different story.  They all lied, either to the public, or under oath when they gave testimony to the House Intel Committee.  So, it would seem logical that they were honest under the threat of perjury when they testified, and lied when they appeared on CNN and MSNBC.
