Peter Strzok and Lisa Page sure have us entertained. They’ve become the gift that keeps on giving.
We now have newly revealed text messages between Strzok and Page being read. They include an exchange about preparing talking points for then-FBI Director James Comey to give to former President Obama, who wanted “to know everything we’re doing.”
Everything? The message, from Page to Strzok, was among thousands of texts between the lovers that were reviewed.
We know that Strzok and Page both worked at one point for Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s probe of alleged collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.
Page wrote to Strzok on Sept. 2, 2016. They wrote about about prepping Comey because “potus wants to know everything we’re doing.”
A newly released Senate report has this text raising questions about Obama’s personal involvement in the Clinton email investigation.
Nice to know that Obama took a personal interest.
In texts we have already read, Strzok and Page have shown their disdain for Republicans in general, as well as Trump, calling him a “f—ing idiot,” among other insults.
The newly disclosed texts get worse. Strzok calls Virginians who voted against then-FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe’s wife for a state Senate seat “ignorant hillbillys.” (sic)
That insulting text came from Strzok to Page on Nov. 4, 2015. It was the day after Jill McCabe lost a fiercely contested Virginia state Senate election.
Strzok said, “Disappointing, but look at the district map. Loudon is being gentrified, but it’s still largely ignorant hillbillys. Good for her for running, but curious if she’s energized or never again.”
Releasing the texts, along with a report titled, “The Clinton Email Scandal and the FBI’s Investigation of it,” are Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., along with majority staff from the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee.
These new texts reveal a bit more about the timing of the discovery of “hundreds of thousands” of emails on former Congressman Anthony Weiner’s laptop.
They lead to Comey’s infamous letter to Congress just days before the 2016 presidential election.
Strzok wrote to Page on September 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.”
As per the Senate report, this text message raises questions about when FBI officials learned of emails that have become relevant to the Hillary Clinton email investigation on the laptop belonging to Weiner. We know that he is the estranged husband to Clinton’s then aide, Huma Abedin.
A month later, on October 28, 2016, when Comey then informed Congress that, “Due to recent developments,” the FBI was re-opening its Clinton email investigation.
James Comey had said, “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…”
A question is why Comey was only informed by his investigative team on October 27, if the Clinton emails on Weiner’s laptop were discovered by September 28.
More texts show more examples of the Strzok and Page opposition to Trump.
On Election Day 2016, Page wrote, “OMG THIS IS F***ING TERRIFYING.”
Strzok replied, “Omg, I am so depressed.”
On November. 13, 2016, Page wrote, “I bought all the president’s men. Figure I need to brush up on watergate.”
On November 14, 2016, Page wrote, “God, being here makes me angry. Lots of high fallutin’ national security talk. Meanwhile we have OUR task ahead of us.”
According to the Senate report, put together with Strzok’s August 15th text about an “insurance policy,” further investigation is necessary to find out what ‘actions’ the gruesome twosome may have taken.
Comeing on June 23, 2017, the last text is from Page to Strzok, and when she wrote, “Please don’t ever text me again.”
It is not clear if she was mad at her boyfriend, or if she suddenly became aware that they and their literally thousands of texts, had just been exposed.
I really don’t know where they had the time to text each other so much but they really helped to get a lot of people in trouble.
The saga continues…
