It looks like there could be another major shakeup in the Obamagate saga.
According to reports, GOP Senator Ron Johnson has requested declassification of the email that Susan Rice sent to herself in 2017 on her Oval Office discussion on the Trump-Russia investigation.
Lord knows the contents of that email must contain something juicy!
Sen. Ron Johnson, the chairman of the Homeland Security and Government Affairs Committee, sent a letter obtained by the Washington Examiner to Attorney General William Barr on Monday, asking for the partly redacted email to be declassified in its entirety and provided to the committee.
“I understand your office is currently reviewing a January 20, 2017, email from former National Security Advisor Susan Rice,” Johnson wrote. “In that email, Ambassador Rice summarized an Oval Office meeting with President Barack Obama and other administration officials that occurred on January 5, 2017. A majority of Ambassador Rice’s email was declassified but a portion of the email remains classified.”
The Wisconsin Republican argued that “the significance of that meeting is becoming increasingly apparent as more and more information is declassified,” and “for these reasons, it is essential that Congress and the American people understand what occurred during that January 5, 2017, meeting and how it was later characterized by administration officials.” Johnson said, “The declassification of Ambassador Rice’s email, in whole, will assist these efforts.”
Former Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates told Robert Mueller’s special counsel team she first learned the U.S. government had intercepted conversations between retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn and Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak from Obama himself following a White House meeting about the intelligence community assessment attended by Yates, Rice, then-Vice President Joe Biden, former FBI Director James Comey, then-CIA Director John Brennan, then-Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, and others. Obama asked Yates and Comey to stay behind with Rice and Biden when the meeting concluded. [Washington Examiner]
We as the American people have the right to know what was discussed on that sham investigation.
Especially if it occurred in the Oval Office.
