More Texts Between Strzok and Page Uncovered, Lead to More Questions
Johnson released the text messages in a 25-page report that outlines how, in their view, Obama kept tabs on the investigation into Clinton's email, an issue that hung over much of the 2016 election.
The report says the personal texts between FBI agent Peter Strzok and lawyer Lisa Page suggest a bias toward Clinton that influenced the investigation into her use of classified information on a private email server while she was secretary of state. Mr Strzok worked on the Clinton email investigation, and both he and Ms Page worked briefly on Special Counsel Robert Mueller's probe of possible Trump campaign ties to Russian Federation.
In a text sent on September 2, 2016, Page tells Strozok that "potus wants to know everything we're doing". According to the Senate report, the text raises questions about Obama's involvement in the Clinton email investigation. "I want to believe the path you threw out for consideration in Andy's office - that there's no way he gets elected - but I'm afraid we can't take that risk".
"While some may discount the investigation for political reasons, we all have a great interest in ensuring the public has confidence in the integrity and independence of the FBI, the preeminent law enforcement agency in the world", the report says.
The Justice Department turned the messages over last month to six congressional committees, including Johnson's.
Todd Frazier, Mets Agree to 2-Year, $17M Contract
Free-agent third baseman Todd Frazier has signed a two-year, $17 million deal with the Mets , a source told ESPN's Jerry Crasnick. In 81 games, the White Sox slugger only managed to hit 16 home runs while driving in just 44 runs, and hitting a paltry.207.
"It just further shows that there is reason for all of us to have great cause for concern in this process, and we hope that it's more thoroughly and fully looked at as we move forward", Sanders said. "I can protect our country at many levels, not sure if that helps", Strzok replied to Page.
The messages then ended when Page wrote to Strzok on July 23, 2017, "Please don't ever text me again".
Page's meaning here is unclear, but Senate investigators say, coupled with Strzok's August 15 text about an "insurance policy", further investigation is warranted to find out what actions the two may have taken.
But his tweet came just moments after a Fox News segment about the text exchange between counterintelligence agent Peter Strzok and Federal Bureau of Investigation lawyer Lisa Page.
He added that Strzok and Page also resented Trump's supporters and the "ignorant hillbillys [sic]" who voted against then-FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe's wife for a state Senate seat. On Nov. 13, 2016, Page wrote, "I bought all the president's men". He also wanted Clinton to defeat Trump in the election - in another message, he wrote: "God Hillary should win 100,000,000 - 0". "Now I need to fix it and finish it". The FBI director works at the president's pleasure, the president has the authority to direct his/her work, and therefore Comey's firing couldn't be considered obstruction of justice, or so the argument goes. A text by Strzok called Trump "an idiot", and said Clinton should win.
