It is becoming clearer why Susan Rice is such a target on the right. She can refute 'Obamagate'

like nobody else as she was in the Obama White House and has a laser like memory for details.

WASHINGTON – Allies of President Donald Trump are seizing upon newly declassified portions of an email written by former national security adviser Susan Rice as evidence that an investigation into her incoming successor, Michael Flynn, was politically motivated, while Rice says the same email proves the previous administration's concerns were legitimate. 

Rice sent herself an email on the day of Trump's inauguration that recounts a Jan. 5, 2017, Oval Office meeting she attended along with President Barack Obama, Vice President Joe Biden, FBI Director James Comey and Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates. She described the meeting as a "follow-on conversation" after a briefing by intelligence community leaders on Russian interference in the 2016 election.  

"President Obama began the conversation by stressing his continued commitment to ensuring that every aspect of this issue is handled by the Intelligence and law enforcement communities 'by the book,'" Rice wrote. "The President stressed that he is not asking about, intimating 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 said Obama wanted to be sure there was no reason they couldn't "share any information fully as it related to Russia" with the new administration.
