Trump in All-Caps Tweet: 'New FBI Texts Are Bombshells'


Newly released texts between FBI employees Peter Strzok and Lisa Page revealed that former President Barack Obama "want [ed] to know everything we're doing" in the bureau's investigation of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server. In late October, 11 days before the election, Comey did briefly reopen the FBI investigation over newly discovered Clinton emails.

The texts make clear that FBI leadership knew weeks before Comey alerted Congress that a trove of emails relevant to the Hillary Clinton investigation had been found on a laptop belonging to former Rep. Anthony Weiner, D-N.Y.

Likely germane to this line of questioning is whether then-Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe was responsible for withholding the information from Comey or whether Comey's letter to Congress misrepresented the timeline regarding the Weiner-Abedin-Clinton tranche of emails and when the FBI acted on those emails.

This text raises additional questions about the type and extent of President Obama's personal involvement in the [Hillary] Clinton email scandal and the FBI investigation of it.

The texts have raised questions about Mr. Strzok's independence on both cases. As Judd Legum at Think Progress noted on Wednesday, Comey closed the Clinton email investigation on July 5, 2016 - almost two months before Page's supposedly explosive text.

The messages also show Strzok and Page discussing an op-ed Comey proposed to discuss Russia's alleged disruption efforts, which the White House vetoed.

"I'm sure an honest answer will come out of that meeting " Strzok wrote, referring to the Putin-Obama encounter.




It's unclear what that "insurance policy" was, but the Justice Department was at the time debating an approach to a federal court for a surveillance warrant against Trump adviser Carter Page.

In addition, the report adds, their messages raise the question of whether "any personal animus and/or political bias influenced the FBI's actions with respect to President Trump".

After Clinton conceded the election to Trump, Page wrote: "Omg, I am so depressed". "This is not a situation in which America's national security was endangered". "Meanwhile, we have OUR task ahead of us".

Trump fired Comey last May after he rejected pressure to back off on the Russian Federation probe.

"POTUS" has become a widely used acronym for president of the United States.

The text messages, 384 pages in all, span from August 16, 2015, through July 23, 2017.

"Facts and dates matter", Burnett said, noting that the September 2 date of the text highlighted by Johnson falls squarely between the July 5 initial closure of the FBI's Clinton email investigation and the September 28 re-opening of the case. The bureau's inspector-general says he has them, however. "The animus towards people who support President Trump is so obvious". But they are hardly nothing, as Democrats claim.
