Federal Bureau of Investigation texts: Obama 'wants to know everything' in Clinton email case

Federal Bureau of Investigation texts: Obama 'wants to know everything' in Clinton email case”

Here's what he's referring to: Fox News reported on Wednesday that Federal Bureau of Investigation agent Lisa Page told her lover Peter Strzok, also an Federal Bureau of Investigation agent, in a September 2016 text message that Obama wanted "to know everything we're doing".

The report from Johnson, chairman of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, highlights previously cited texts between FBI agent Peter Strzok and his girlfriend, Lisa Page, a bureau lawyer, the Journal reported. They also worked for a short period on Special Counsel Robert Mueller's team.

Fox News' report this morning noted, "According to a newly released Senate report, this text raises questions about Obama's personal involvement in the Clinton email investigation".

Page wrote to Strzok on September 2, 2016 about prepping Comey because "potus wants to know everything we're doing".

The FBI investigation into whether Clinton had sent classified information using a private email server became perhaps the biggest stumbling block of her presidential run. A new report from Senate Republicans yesterday alleged the FBI is biased against President Donald Trump, raising pressure on the agency as the White House fights off the mounting Russian Federation collusion investigation.

In one August 15, 2016 exchange, Strzok wrote of a meeting that had occurred earlier that day in then-FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe's office.

Last week, House Intelligence Committee Chair Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) released a memo - with Trump's approval - alleging that USA law enforcement abused its powers by wrongly spying on the Trump campaign during the 2016 presidential election.

Strzok and Page's also provide some insights into their handling of the Clinton and Trump investigations. "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.

The document dump does not include five months of messages that Strzok and Page exchanged between December 13, 2016 and May 17, 2017, a crucial time period in the Russian Federation investigation. Second (more recent) is updated so you can skip the first.' In another exchange, on October 25, 2016, about a letter to Congress regarding the Clinton investigation, Page wrote, 'Remind me I need to ask you something.

"The last text is from Page to Strzok, comes on June 23, 2017 when she wrote, "Please don't ever text me again".

There's no question both Strzok and Page were stridently opposed to Trump's candidacy and the prospect of a Trump administration, using words like "idiot", "loathsome", "menace" and "disaster" to describe him. A lawyer for Strzok declined to comment, and a lawyer for Page could not be reached.

The Associated Press has also reviewed the thousands of text messages.

"I'm sure an honest answer will come out of that meeting " Strzok wrote, referring to the Putin-Obama encounter. Fox News' Jon Scott said before moving on.
