Trump's latest Peter Strzok 'BOMBSHELL' is just as dubious as its predecessors

  • Mark Levin on FISA Controversy: Obama Likely Knew 'Hillary Clinton Paid for a Warrant'

A footnote in the report suggests it can not be confirmed that Strzok's text was related to the FBI's investigation of Clinton's private email server, but presumes that it is related to the probe because the message was not redacted. "Good for her for running, but curious if she's energized or never again".

And the timeline of the texts, as laid out by Republicans on the Senate Homeland Security Committee, does not comport with what was happening when the messages were sent in 2016 and ignores that the texts were sent days before Obama confronted Russian President Vladimir Putin over the country's meddling in the 2016 election.

Despite the ambiguity over the context of the text, President Donald Trump seized on the news Wednesday, tweeting that the "NEW FBI TEXTS ARE BOMBSHELLS!"

"I guarantee that there is no political influence in any investigation conducted by the Justice Department, or the FBI, not just in this case, but in any case", he added. "Sending team up tomorrow to review. this will never end".

She noted that the texts also raise questions about former President Obama's interest and involvement in the Hillary Clinton email investigation.

The question becomes 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, at the latest.




New information released Wednesday concerning texts between Federal Bureau of Investigation officials Peter Strzok and Lisa Page appear to counter the narrative put forward by the former president.

"Comey. was more anxious about what the Republicans would say after the election than following the rules and not doing anything to affect the election", he said.

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.

Trump has pursued this fantasy conspiracy theory, aided and abetted by Fox News, the far right, and Republican politicians. "Figure I need to brush up on watergate".

"Omg, I am so depressed", he replied. Lots of high fallutin' national security talk.

"Because that's clearly from all the other text messages, that's what they were working on, that's what they cared about", Gohmert said. Their observations aren't anything worse than what we hear on Cable TV every day, and independent prosecutor Robert Muller removed them from his probe when he discovered their bias, so I haven't gotten too worked up about their indiscretions.
