...contain or discuss an email that refers to a conversation allegedly between Attorney General Lynch and, uh, uh, a person by the name of Amanda Renteria?

it was classified at such a high level, by the intelligence community -- we don't make that decision -- by the intelligence community, that it limited even the members who can see it, as well as the staffs.
I'm not that up to date with US government structures.
Who is ( names / department ) the "intelligence community" ?
They seem to have a lot of authority , above Rosenstein's authority ?
The United States Intelligence Community (IC) is a federation of 16 separate United States government agencies that work separately and together to conduct intelligence activities to support the foreign policy and national security of the United States.
Member organizations of the IC include intelligence agencies, military intelligence, and civilian intelligence and analysis offices within federal executive departments. The IC is overseen by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI), which itself is headed by the Director of National Intelligence (DNI), who reports to the President of the United States.
Among their varied responsibilities, the members of the Community collect and produce foreign and domestic intelligence, contribute to military planning, and perform espionage. The IC was established by Executive Order 12333, signed on December 4, 1981, by U.S. President Ronald Reagan
....by the intelligence community, that it limited even the members who can see it...

His answer seems to express surprise by the level of the clarification.
I wonder if this is another case of hiding $70k conference tables? We know how dangerous that information can be.
(b)(5) Inter-agency or intra-agency memorandums or letters that would not be available by law to a party other than an agency in litigation with the agency.
Mr. Kadzik, 63 years old, serves as assistant attorney general running the Justice Department’s Office of Legislative Affairs, meaning he is the agency’s liaison with Congress. It is a political position, and he will leave the job in a week.
But Mr. Kadzik has spent recent months beset by hate mail—and some death threats, he said in an interview—after WikiLeaks published an email showing that in 2015 he alerted Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta about a congressional hearing and a court filing, both related to Mrs. Clinton’s use of a private email server while she was secretary of state.
In the email, Mr. Kadzik wrote to Mr. Podesta that he wanted to give him a “heads up.”

A drumbeat of lagging revenue and high-level departures caught up with one of Washington’s major law firms last week as Dickstein Shapiro closed its doors and went out of business, notifying current and former partners in a FedEx-delivered letter that the firm is unable to repay the financial stakes that partners had invested in the firm.
“I lost equity, as did all of their partners,” said Andy Zausner, who headed Dickstein Shapiro’s congressional practice before leaving for Greenberg Traurig in July. “I have not decided myself if I am going to do anything about it.”
Zausner did not disclose how much money he lost but acknowledged that it was substantial.
Tnx for the replay.
I guess i have to see "members" as : If one agency calls it "off limit" it is accepted as , and other agencies ( in the same group ) do also not get to see it anymore.
That seems like a lot of power. I guess understandable in highly classified info, but also very vonurable for misusage from the inside.
I, uh, asked the Deputy Attorney General's office to help facilitate this, is to go back to the intelligence community and let us know how we can address whatever caused this to be classified at that high level, so that we can make sure that we can write it a level and get it to the members. Including the qu-- ans-- question you raise promptly, and ther-- they told us they are doing that. We very much want the committee to see this information.

Definitely -- this ALL goes straight to Obama and his team (although I wonder if it's really more like Valerie and her team...). But I'm curious... do you think there ever was any such Russian intel? Or that Team Obama planted that info themselves, while blaming Russia, for a purpose? (I'm leaning toward the latter.)
Doesn't seem he expected that level of classification.

While this is all interesting, the sad truth is we will never know what was/is going on. But if you guys want to keep looking into this I will keep reading your thoughts. It is good reading but I still know nothing will ever come to light. Us commoners are not ever worth the strings that the puppets get played with. And those same strings pull both sides. “Divide and conquer” my dear friends.
