Obama struggled about sharing intel with Trump

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, according to an internal White House email released Monday by two senior GOP senators.

The warning Obama delivered on Jan. 5, 2017, came during an Oval Office conversation shortly after senior intelligence officials briefed him 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, the day of Trump's inauguration.

Portions of the email were released Monday by Sens. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) and Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), who called the missive "odd" and "unusual."

Grassley and Graham seized on Rice's decision to email herself a summary of the Jan. 5 meeting at 12:15 p.m. on Inauguration Day, "presumably a very short time before you departed the White House for the last time." The move appears to have been intended to create a permanent official record of the conversation.
