Following Fox News' Lead, President Tweets About 'BOMBSHELL' FBI Texts

Newly released text messages between two FBI officials who had been assigned to the investigation into Russia's alleged election interference suggest that President Obama was tracking developments in the bureau's inquiry into Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server while she was secretary of State.

Strzok was a member of special counsel Robert Mueller's team of investigators, but was removed over the summer when anti-Trump texts he'd exchanged with Page - an Federal Bureau of Investigation lawyer with whom he was having an affair - came to Mueller's attention.

According to one message sent from Page to Stzok on September 2, 2016, Obama wanted "to know everything".

"This text raises additional questions about the type and extent of President Obama's personal involvement in the Clinton email scandal and the FBI investigation of it", the report said. "Now I need to fix it and finish it".

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

They've repeatedly used the texts to attack Mueller's investigation into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation.

But they also add fuel to Republican allegations that then-FBI director James Comey's July 5, 2016 decision not to charge Clinton was already set even before Clinton was interviewed. "Sending team up tomorrow to review. this will never end", Strzok told Page on September 28, 2016.

The Prime Minister said the federal government will extend all possible support for the development of the PaK. With all our political differences aside, there is no second opinion in Pakistan on the Kashmir dispute .

The texts also include discussions about an "insurance policy" against the "risk" of a Trump presidency, "unfinished business" and "an investigation leading to impeachment". "Potus wants to know everything we're doing", it said without providing any evidence about the topic of the reference to the president of the United States.

Strzok, a self-identified "conservative Dem", texted Page that Trump was an "idiot".

"The last text is from Page to Strzok, comes on June 23, 2017 when she wrote, "Please don't ever text me again". After news reports about the messages, lawmakers demanded to see them amid Republican concerns that agency officials were biased against Trump. Page, who'd also been detailed to that team, left that assignment before the messages were discovered.

The text messages, 384 pages in all, span from August 16, 2015, through July 23, 2017. "I can protect our country at many levels, not sure if that helps", Strzok replied to Page.

"In connection with an unrelated case, the FBI has learned of the existence of emails that appear to be pertinent to the investigation".

Millions will go for the latter because while Page was anxious that she and Lover Boy Strzok and their thousands of texts would be discovered, they had outed Obama in a saga that went all the way from "Potus wants to know" to "Inquiring Minds DEMAND to know".

"The misleading messaging was delivered to millions of people through Fox News' airwaves and through other pro-Trump media, which went into overdrive", Darcy wrote, noting that the story was featured prominently on the Drudge Report, Breitbart and fringe right-wing sites like InfoWars and the Gateway Pundit.
