"BOMBSHELLS!" Trump says new batch of Federal Bureau of Investigation texts are explosive

Rep. Peter King: The FBI Duped FISA Court to Obtain Warrants Against Trump Officials

A footnote in the report suggests it can not be confirmed that Strzok's text was related to the FBI's investigation of Clinton's private email server, but presumes that it is related to the probe because the message was not redacted.

Texts released to Fox News reportedly show that FBI lawyer Lisa Page wrote to agent Peter Strzok - her alleged lover - in September 2016 about preparing talking points for then-FBI Director James Comey.

They underscore how the Clinton inquiry, well before the launch of the investigation into the Trump campaign and Russian Federation, caused anxiety and tension within the FBI and Justice Department as witness interviews, strategic decisions and even public statements were picked apart internally and in the news media in the months preceding the election.

"And so in early September, when I saw President Putin in China, I felt that the most effective way to ensure that that didn't happen was to talk to him directly and tell him to cut it out, and there were going to be some serious consequences if he didn't", said at the time.

The report by Republicans on the Senate Homeland Security Committee says some 50,000 text messages between two FBI investigators show they and others went easy in a probe of 2016 Democratic presidential election candidate Hillary Clinton, while launching an investigation of the Trump campaign.

Since the leadership at the FBI was unaware of these new emails until almost a month after Page sent her "bombshell" text, there's no reason at all to think Obama had any interest in the Clinton investigation, which he could rightfully assume was closed.

In texts that were previously released to Congress, Strzok and Page referred to Trump as an "idiot" and a "loathsome human".




-The Obama Justice Department or White House influenced an FBI investigation.

"Potus wants to know everything we're doing", Page wrote to Strzok according to Fox News.

How many Federal Bureau of Investigation directors follow to the letter the talking points of underling agents on national security?

That begs the question: Why have the texts become such a big deal?

Former President Obama once insisted that there was "a strict line" that prevented him from getting involved in pending investigations, but did he sometimes cross that line?

Comey, McCabe and Rybicki have been in the cross hairs of the congressional investigations into both the Clinton investigation as well as the FBI's handling of the Russian Federation investigation. However, it's not clear that the message referred to the Clinton investigation.

That one, incidentally, has Page telling Strzok "Please don't ever text me again". It also raised concerns about the FBI's investigation into Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server while secretary of state - a matter which the Justice Department inspector general also is exploring. "Now I need to fix it and finish it".
