In a bombshell report blown wide open by NBC News, we learned today that President Obama “hand-carried” a list of documents to the Senate Intelligence Committeed related to Trump/Russian communications during the presidential campaign.
According to NBC News, the fear was that once the Trump Administration took office, the key documents would disappear or be destroyed. To prevent this from happening, Obama had individual serial numbers assigned to each document. This list of documents and their serial numbers was placed directly in the hands of senior members of the Senate Intelligence Committee.
The source of this news was a former Obama Administration official, who added, “The purpose, said the official, was to make it “harder to bury” the information, “to share it with those on the Hill who could lawfully see the documents,” and to make sure it could reside in an Intelligence committee safe, “not just at Langley [CIA hq].”
