GOP Releases Obama “Warning” On Russian Hack Of 2016 Election

According to an internal White House email released Monday by two senior GOP senators, former President Barack Obama suggested in January 2017 that information related to a federal probe of Russian election interference might have to be withheld from aides to then-President-elect Donald Trump. The warning Obama delivered on Jan. 5, 2017, came during an Oval Office conversation. It shortly followed a briefing in which senior intelligence officials brought him to up speed on Russian cyber-meddling in the 2016 election. It was documented in an email then-national security adviser Susan Rice sent to herself on Jan. 20. That was the day of Trump’s inauguration. Portions of the email were released Monday by Sens. Chuck Grassley and Lindsey Graham. They called the missive “odd” and “unusual.”
