Lindsay Graham wants Susan Rice to explain the contrived “CYA” email she sent to herself

Rice's email to herself noted a meeting attended by former President Barack Obama, former Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey, former DOJ official Sally Yates and former Vice President Joe Biden.

The two senators also note that while Rice said that Obama instructed Comey to proceed 'by the book, ' the Republicans claim that 'substantial questions have arisen about whether officials at the Federal Bureau of Investigation, as well as the Justice Department and the State Department, actually did proceed "by the book"'.

Rice's email has been partially declassified by Republican Sens.

"4. Did anyone instruct, request, suggest, or imply that you should send yourself the aforementioned Inauguration Day email memorializing President Obama's meeting with Mr. Comey about the Trump/Russia investigation?"

"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", Comey said in his opening statement to the Senate intel committee.

Rice, herself, as well as then-Vice President Joe Biden, were also present for the meeting.

Sens. Chuck Grassley, the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, and Lindsey Graham, who chairs a Judiciary subcommittee, penned a letter to Rice and, asking her to answer questions about the note, dated January 20, 2017.

He said Rice wanted to make Obama appear to be "ignorant" of the "fray fomented by his administration to undermine the incoming president".

Thousands of text messages obtained by the DOJ Inspector General reveal that the lead Federal Bureau of Investigation agent on both the Clinton and Trump cases, Peter Strzok, and a high-ranking Federal Bureau of Investigation lawyer, Lisa Page, had a clear bias in favor of Clinton and against Trump. It was timed just 15 minutes after President Trump took office.

A number of the senators" questions have to do with Christopher Steele, the ex-British spy, and the so-called "dirty dossier, ' which was financed partially by the Democratic Party and Hillary Clinton's campaign, after a Republican rival of Trump originally funded the opposition research into the now-president's links with Russian Federation.

The dossier, produced by Fusion GPS, was used by the Federal Bureau of Investigation to obtain a FISA surveillance warrant on Trump campaign volunteer Carter Page.

"Did President Obama have any other meetings with Mr. Comey, Ms. Yates, or other government officials about the FBI' s investigation of allegations of collusion between Trump associates and Russian Federation?" the letter asked.

Senators Grassley and Graham have sent a letter to former National Security Advisor Susan Rice asking her to explain an email which they clearly believe is highly suspicious.

"From a national security perspective, however, President Obama said he wants to be sure that, as we engage with the incoming team, we are mindful to ascertain if there is any reason that we can not share information fully as it relates to Russian Federation".

Just last week, a former Federal Bureau of Investigation informant, William Campbell, who was silenced under the Obama administration, revealed to Congress that Russian authorities had hired an American lobbying firm, APCO Worldwide, to influence the Obama administration.
