Text From 2016 Shows Obama's Interest in FBI Employees' Work

Should Congress demand a real Clinton corruption probe in budget talks?

House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes claimed it was the Hillary Clinton campaign that was the real Russian collaborator when he appeared on Fox News's'Hannity on Monday

Former President Barack Obama told Fox News' Chris Wallace that there was no political influence in investigations led by the Justice Department or the FBI.

"I$3 t has to be about the Russian Federation probe", former Department of Justice official Matthew Miller told ThinkProgress in reference to the September 2, 2016 texts.

"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. FULL STOP. PERIOD. Guaranteed.

The text, sent September 2, 2016 from bureau lawyer Page to agent Strzok, reads that "potus [sic] wants to know everything we're doing".

The committee members will soon publish a report titled 'The Clinton Email Scandal and the FBI's Investigation of it'. I spoke only twice in three years, and didn't document it'.

Two days earlier, deputy press secretary Eric Schultz told reporters that the White House had been caught by surprise when Mr. Comey announced that the had uncovered more Clinton emails.

Wasn't the FBI's probe into Trump's "Russia collusion" a national security matter?

The text message from the agent also serves as a reminder that wasn't above declaring Mrs. Clinton free of wrongdoing while the probe was still going on. Some conservatives also believe the effort to depose Trump continues within special counsel Robert Mueller's probe, which, among other things, looks into possible collusion between Russian Federation and the Trump campaign.

In July 2016, when Comey defended to Congress the bureau's decision not to seek charges against Clinton for her use of a private email server, Strzok and Page traded admiring texts about his verbal dexterity.

Clinton used a private server and email accounts for official business during her tenure as secretary of state from 2009 to 2013. Hillary Clinton's handling of classified material was simply indefensible.

In recent months, the Department of Justice handed two batches of text messages over to Congress that Strzok and Page exchanged during the 2016 presidential campaign and after the election.

"The last text is from Page to Strzok, comes on June 23, 2017 when she wrote, "Please don't ever text me again". It's like an insurance policy in the unlikely event you die before you're 40".

The dates of the text messages range from August 2015 to December 2016, according to The Washington Times and other media outlets that obtained copies.

"This man cannot be president", Page wrote in March 2016.

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

The next day, November 14, 2016, Page wrote, "God, being here makes me angry. Figure I need to brush up on Watergate".
