Former National Security Advisor Susan Rice's attorney Kathryn Ruemmler has fired back at Republicans questioning the motives and completeness of an email purporting to document a meeting between some of then-President Obama's top officials. She denied that meeting discussed the Steele dossier, a specter raised by the chair of the Senate Judiciary committee as he sought information about the email.

What they're saying: "The discussion that Ambassador Rice documented did not involve the so-called Steele dossier," said Ruemmler 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."
