Susan Rice Attorney: Dossier Not Discussed in 2017 Meeting

Susan Rice Attorney: Dossier Not Discussed in 2017 Meeting

By    |   Wednesday, 14 February 2018 11:28 AM

The lawyer for former national security adviser Susan Rice refuted Republicans' assertions that the dossier authored by a British spy was discussed during a 2017 meeting between officials of the Obama administration.

Kathryn Ruemmler, former White House counsel to President Barack Obama, released a statement picked up by multiple outlets saying that Republicans are trying to distort the facts as a way to discredit the myriad Russian probes.

"The discussion that Ambassador Rice documented did not involve the so-called Steele dossier," Ruemmler said in a statement. "Any insinuation that Ambassador Rice’s actions in this matter were inappropriate is yet another attempt to distract and deflect from the importance of the ongoing investigations into Russian meddling in America’s democracy."

Further, Ruemmler also asserted that there was nothing unusual about Rice memorializing what was discussed in the curious meeting about just how much Obama's administration should tell the campaign of then candidate Donald Trump.

"There is nothing ‘unusual’ about the National Security Advisor memorializing an important discussion for the record," Ruemmler said in her statement.

“The Obama White House was justifiably concerned about how comprehensive they should be in their briefings regarding Russia to members of the Trump transition team, particularly Lt. General Michael Flynn, given the concerning communications between him and Russian officials,” Ruemmler said in the statement.
