President Obama officials are playing a major role in the Russia/Trump investigation. According to an NBC News report, Obama era officials compiled a list of classified documents related to the probe into Russian interference in the presidential election and gave it to key lawmakers before leaving office.
A former Obama official spoke with NBC, stating that the list of document serial numbers were created in early January. The documents were then hand-delivered to senior members on the Senate Intelligence Committee.
According to the official, the purpose of this 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].”
