Susan Rice Admits Obama Was Surveilling Trump Campaign

Remember that really odd email Susan Rice sent to herself on the eve of the Trump inauguration?

Yep, that one.

It not only confirmed that James Comey had lied (under oath) about when he last met with President Obama.

It also confirmed during that meeting, via an explanation from Rice’s attorney, that President Obama had directed his administration to monitor communications of the Trump team “before and after the election” citing concerns over Russia.

And it was Comey from whom he was seeking input and updates on that monitoring.

So Comey was directing the FBI’s surveillance of Trump’s team the whole time.

And it just happens that Comey’s team was very pro-Hillary.

No collusion there at all, folks. Moving right along.

Here’s more from Breitbart…

A lawyer for Susan Rice said in a letter Friday that the former national security adviser sent herself an email on her last day in office documenting a meeting with President Obama and his top national security advisers about sharing intelligence with the incoming Trump administration in order to create a “permanent record” of the discussion.

Kathryn H. Ruemmler of Latham & Watkins LLP wrote:

Given the importance and sensitivity of the subject matter, and upon the advice of the White House Counsel’s Office, Ambassador Rice created a permanent record of the discussion. Ambassador Rice memorialized the discussion on January 20, because that was the first opportunity she had to do so, given the particularly intense responsibilities of the National Security Advisor during the remaining days of the Administration and transition.

Rice’s lawyer ignored the majority of their 12 questions and offered an unsolicited narrative that Obama and his national security team were “justifiably concerned” about potential risks to the nation’s national security from sharing highly-classified information about Russia with “certain members” of the Trump transition team, “particularly Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn.”

Her lawyer confirmed that the Obama administration monitored the communications of the Trump team and Russian officials “before and after the election” — which she said were “concerning.”

“In light of concerning communications between members of the Trump team and Russian officials, before and after the election, President Obama, on behalf of his national security team, appropriately sought the FBI and the Department of Justice’s guidance on this subject,” she wrote.
