Federal Bureau of Investigation lovers' newly released texts: Obama 'wants to know everything'

Federal Bureau of Investigation lovers' newly released texts: Obama 'wants to know everything'

And Trump, who has previously seized on texts between Strzok and Page, tweeted Wednesday: "NEW FBI TEXTS ARE BOMBSHELLS!".

While it wasn't clear what Trump saw as "bombshells", committee Chairman Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) highlighted a message from September 2, 2016 in which Page mentioned preparing talking points for then-FBI Director James Comey, saying President Barack Obama "wants to know everything we're doing".

If Obama really wanted to know everything about the FBI's Russian Federation investigation at that point, Levin explained, "everything" would have certainly included the infamous FISA application that led to surveillance of the Trump team in the first place.

Mueller, a former FBI director, is examining whether Trump tried to obstruct his investigation, a criminal act that has the potential to endanger Trump's presidency. Also included in a batch of newly released documents are email exchanges between top FBI officials drafting the statement that former FBI Director James Comey gave when he exonerated Clinton in the probe. The messages reveal feelings that Rep. Jordan thinks must have affected the agent's judgment as he investigated first Hillary Clinton's email scandal and later the supposed connections said to exist between then-candidate Donald Trump and Russian officials.

Yet again, President Trump and his supporters have found a Peter Strzok text message of which they're quite fond.

-The Obama Justice Department or White House influenced an FBI investigation.

Egypt unveils 4400-year-old tomb discovered near Giza pyramids
Egypt hopes the inauguration of the new museum, along with the recent discoveries, will draw visitors back to the country. Waziri told Egyptian media that the tomb has the decorative elements and the the architectural style of the 5th Dynasty.

The Sept. 2, 2016, text message from Page to Strzok that mentions Obama wanting "to know everything" is one of more than 50,000 texts the two Federal Bureau of Investigation officials exchanged during a two-year extramarital affair, the Daily Mail reported.

"The time line Sen. ohnson put out makes no sense", CNN correspondent Evan Peretz said on "OutFront" on Wednesday night, adding: "It appears this is yet another one of these text messages that is being misinterpreted". He also wanted Clinton to defeat Trump in the election - in another message, he wrote: "God Hillary should win 100,000,000 - 0". "I do not talk to FBI directors about pending investigations", Obama said on "Fox News Sunday". In some of those messages, Strzok and Page spoke ill of Trump, even calling him an "idiot" at one point. "Figure I need to brush up on Watergate".

In a text exchange between the agents on November 8, 2016, Page wrote, "OMG THIS IS F***ING TERRIFYING" - a reference to Trump's possible victory.

Also on September 2, 2016, though, the FBI released a full transcript - with redactions - of its interview with Hillary Clinton as part of the email probe, along with a memo summarizing the bureau's investigation of her use of a private email server during her tenure as secretary of state.

"For me, and this case, I personally have a sense of unfinished business", Strzok wrote.
