Newly Released FBI Texts Show Strzok-Page Bashing “Turtle” Mitch McConnell, Trey Gowdy & Paul Ryan
Newly released FBI text messages show agents Peter Strzok and Lisa Page bashing Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) and House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI).
Luke Rosiak of the Daily Caller reports:
The FBI officials investigating Hillary Clinton’s email server wrote that House Speaker Paul Ryan is a “jerk,” that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell looks like a turtle, that Oversight Committee chairman Trey Gowdy is a “dick,” and that newscaster Chris Wallace is a “turd.”
And as for former FBI Director James Comey: “Jim’s too blindly boyscoutish.” […]
The Oversight Committee held a hearing Sept. 12 about “Classifications and Redactions in the FBI’s investigative file” on the Clinton case. Jason Herring, acting assistant director for Congressional Affairs of the FBI, was there to provide answers, while Page and Strzok watched.
Page appeared to fault the chairman of the oversight committee for asking “investigative questions” and indicated that Herring was supposed to have a simple “script” — of refusing to answer.
“Gowdy is being a total dick. All investigative questions. And Jason isn’t always stricking to the script on ‘I’m not answering that,’” she wrote. “Gowdy is really starting to piss me off,” she previously noted.
Newly revealed text messages between FBI paramours Peter Strzok and Lisa Page include an exchange about preparing talking points for then-FBI Director James Comey to give to President Obama, who wanted “to know everything we’re doing.” […]
Page wrote to Strzok on Sept. 2, 2016 about prepping Comey because “potus wants to know everything we’re doing.” Senate investigators told Fox News this text raises questions about Obama’s personal involvement in the Clinton email investigation.
Reacting to newly released text messages between Strzok and Page, Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) told “Fox & Friends,” that he believes then-President Obama wanted to know what the bureau was doing to thwart Donald Trump’s presidential campaign.
When asked what does Page’s text about Obama wanting to “know everything we’re doing,” means, the Texas lawmaker replied, “it means the President wants to know what they are doing to try to stop Trump.”
President Trump took to Twitter Wednesday to comment on the newly released text messages between Strzok and Page, calling them “bombshells.”
NEW FBI TEXTS ARE BOMBSHELLS!
