New questions have come to the surface about Obama’s interest in the Hillary Clinton probe.
With newly released text messages between FBI lovers Peter Strzok and Lisa Page claiming Obama wanting to “know everything” the FBI was “doing” might just raise questions about the former 2016 presidential statement.
Reports say the messages were part of a group released by Sen. Ron Johnson and the majority staff from the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee. The lovers who worked for a small amount of time on Robert Mueller’s team, have been in the open air ever since a batch of anti-Trump messages. Which among them came to the surface last year.
According to conservativetribune:
When it comes to the Strzok-Page texts, the hits just keep on coming. And this time, it’s former President Obama who’s taking the hit.
A newly released set of texts between the Tristan and Isolde of the FBI, disclosed to the public Wednesday, seem to reveal that the Obama administration wanted to stay informed on certain investigations even after the president insisted he wasn’t doing that.
Why is that important? It reveals that the president was lying through his teeth during a 2016 interview in which he perhaps received his toughest grilling on whether he had his fingers in the FBI’s multifarious Clinton-related pies.
First, the texts. According to Fox News, the text exchange in question is from Sept. 2, 2016 — several months after James Comey had officially pronounced Hillary Clinton clean as a whistle.
“Checkout my 9:30 mtg on the 7th,” Strzok texted Page.
“I can tell you why you’re having that meeting. It’s not what you think,” Page responded.
“TPs (talking points) for D (Comey)?” Strzok queried back.
“Yes, bc potus wants to know everything we are doing,” Page answered.
POTUS, for those of you who educated through Common Core, is President of the United States — in other words, Barack Obama. This means, unless there’s some insane, next-level sarcasm at work here, that’s essentially confirmation that the president was receiving briefings regarding ongoing FBI investigations.
