Senator Ron Johnson: Please Declassify Susan Rice's Strange, Defensive-Lawyering "By the Book" Email
Acting ODNI Ric Grenell: All Right, Here You Go!

What madness is this? A member of the IC who actually complies with Congressional demands for transparency?

Ric Grennell is no True Conservative!!!

The Republican chairman of a Senate committee asked the Trump administration to fully declassify an email that President Barack Obama's national security adviser sent to herself about Michael Flynn shortly before she left office, according to a report.

Sen. Ron Johnson is seeking the email sent by Susan Rice about a Jan. 5, 2017, Oval Office meeting in which Obama and other top administration officials discussed the case against Flynn, who went on to become Trump's national security adviser.

"I understand your office is currently reviewing a January 20, 2017, email from former national security advisor Susan Rice," Johnson wrote in the letter to Attorney General William Barr that was viewed by Politico.

"In that email, Ambassador Rice summarized an Oval Office meeting with President 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," wrote Johnson, chairman of the Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee.

Ric Grenell has apparently complied with Congress.


BREAKING: Sources say acting DNI Richard Grenell has declassified full text of the January 20, 2017 Susan Rice "email to self." Part of the email had been released, but part remained redacted. It has been sent to DOJ; let's hope Congress gets ahold and releases it soon.

This is the weird Rice email memorializing the infamous Jan 5, 2017 meeting at which Flynn was discussed and insisting all was done "by the book." We will hopefully find out more of what was discussed/done.

Wow, look how authoriarian Trump is -- complying with Congressional demands for transparency, instead of constantly blocking them, as we saw under Obama and under the NeverTrump Captivity Period of the Trump Administration.

Must. Protect. The Precious.

Remember: The Final Form of NeverTrump will be making impassioned arguments on behalf of Barack Hussein Obama's rights to privacy and executive privilege.
