Susan Rice’s email exposes Team Obama’s “by the book” treachery
To the ObamaBots, Susan Rice’s “Dear Diary” e-mail to herself on Donald Trump’s Inauguration Day is no big deal. To which the rest of the world channels John McEnroe and shouts, “You can’t be serious!” Oh, but the ObamaBots are serious-about protecting themselves. They’ve been caught running a spying operation on the incoming administration and now are telling the world to move along, there’s nothing to see here. The e-mail recounts a meeting on Jan. 5, 2017, where top officials discuss the monitoring of incoming National Security Adviser Michael Flynn’s conversations with the Russian ambassador. Though FBI Director James Comey says Flynn hasn’t revealed any secrets, he worries about how often the two have spoken. President Obama asks if they should withhold information from Flynn. “Potentially,” Comey replies. The beauty of the e-mail is also its puzzle. Oddly, Rice puts Obama and Vice President Joe Biden in the middle of a scam, places acting Attorney General Sally Yates at the scene, and implicates J. Edgar Comey. For more than three years, that kept a dangerous man quiet and out of the way. What if it was all done “by the book,” just as Obama ordered.
