Obama NSA Head Sent Unusual Russia Investigation Email To Self Minutes After Inauguration

In a letter Grassley and Graham have sent to Rice, they write, "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."

There was an unusual development late Monday in the investigation of alleged Russian interference of the 2016 U.S. Presidential Election.

U.S. Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley and Senator Lindsey Graham are asking Obama National Security Advisor Susan Rice why she sent an email to herself minutes after President Trump was sworn in to office, allegedly documenting President Obama's guidance at a meeting that included then FBI Director James Comey weeks before, about how law enforcement should investigate the matter.

"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," Rice wrote in the email.

In a letter Grassley and Graham have sent to Rice, they write, "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."

The email also reveals that after that meeting, Obama and Comey discussed possibly hiding intel from the Trump transition team, "from a national security perspective."

Graham and Grassley also asked if Rice had any knowledge about an application to obtain a surveillance warrant on former Trump campaign associate Carter Page at the time she sent the email.

FOX News Judicial Analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano talked to Jamie about the development Tuesday morning on his radio show.

On FOX News that same morning, Napolitano said Rice "is trying to rewrite history."

"She's trying to make it look as if something happened that didn’t happen," Napolitano said on "Fox & Friends".

"So you are a juror in a courtroom and you learn that an event occurred on January 5th and one of the people at the event 16 days later decides to write a memo summarizing what happened at the event," the former New Jersey Superior Court judge continued.

"She writes the memo after Barack Obama is out of office, it's 12:15 in the afternoon, his term ended 15 minutes earlier, after she no longer had a job. My suspicion, and I think Senator Graham shares this as well, is that they learned something between January 5th and January 20th which caused them to want to change the narrative about this meeting."

"None of us knew about the meeting, there's no reason for anyone to know about the meeting, it's a private secret meeting in the Oval Office. Suddenly word comes out. And why would 'by the book' be in quotations? Who would believe this?" Napolitano asked in conclusion.
