Text messages have surfaced between FBI lovers Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, including a discussion about talking points for former FBI Director James Comey to hand President Obama, who wanted “to know everything we’re doing,” Fox News reported. Notably, both officials worked under Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russian collusion investigation.
In September of 2016, Page wrote the message to Strzok about preparing Comey because then-President Obama “wants to know everything we’re doing,” and according to a recent Senate report, now questions if Obama was involved in the Clinton email investigation.
The texts also bash Republicans, and more specifically, Trump, calling him a “f—–g idiot.” Additionally, Strzok says Virginians who voted against former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe’s wife for a state Senate seat were “ignorant hillbillys [sic].”
This came one day after Jill McCabe lost a Virginia state Senate election, which Strzok called “dissapointing [sic],” but added: “Look at the district map. Loudon is being gentrified, but it’s still largely ignorant hillbillys [sic]. Good for her for running, but curious if she’s energized or never again.”
The texts also point to when the “hundreds of thousands” of emails on former Congressman Anthony Weiner’s laptop were discovered.
Strzok wrote to Page on Sept. 28, 2016, “Got called up to Andy’s [McCabe] earlier… hundreds of thousands of emails turned over by Weiner’s atty to sdny [Southern District of New York], includes a ton of material from spouse [Huma Abedin]. Sending team up tomorrow to review… this will never end.”
The Senate report also questions when FBI officials knew about the emails within the Hillary Clinton email investigation on Weiner’s laptop, who is the husband to Clinton staffer Huma Abedin.
Comey told Congress one month on Oct. 28, 2016, later that the FBI was re-opening the Clinton email investigation “due to recent developments.”
“In connection with an unrelated case, the FBI has learned of the existence of emails that appear to be pertinent to the investigation. I am writing to inform you that the investigative team briefed me on this yesterday…” Comey said on Sept. 28. This introduces the question of why Comey informed his investigative team on Oct. 27, if the emails were discovered a month earlier.
The individuals also don’t hold back in expressing their disdain for President Trump.
“OMG THIS IS F***ING TERRIFYING,” Page said on the 2016 election day. “Omg, I am so depressed,” Strzok replied.
On June 23, 2017, Page sent her last text to Strzok, which said: “Please don’t ever text me again.” It’s unclear whether this text was personal, or if Page realized their texts have been discovered.
