Rice has been neck deep in several scandals, including the "unmasking" ordeal that unfolded shortly after Donald Trump beat Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election. Senator Lindsey Graham has now described one of Rice's newly discovered emails as "disturbing," flinging her head first into the invented Russian collusion scandal. The recently revealed Inauguration Day email from Susan Rice detailed former President Barack Obama's guidance at a high-level meeting about how law enforcement should investigate Russian interference in the 2016 election.
According to Fox News, the email first surfaced Monday, when Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, and Graham, R-S.C., sent the Obama national security adviser a letter, pressing for answers about the email by next week. "She's sending herself an email talking about a conversation on January 5 with the president, reassuring herself, and I guess the president, that this would be done by the book," Graham said Monday night on Fox News' The Story with Martha MacCallum. "I think that's odd and disturbing because we know the investigation regarding the Trump campaign was anything but by the book."
