A top Senate Republican asked the Justice Department to declassify the email that former Obama national security adviser Susan Rice sent herself about an early January 2017 Oval Office discussion about the Trump-Russia investigations.
H/T: Washington Examiner
“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.”
