Text messages exchanged between two FBI employees stating that then-President Obama wanted “to know everything” referred to the bureau's investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election, not a probe into Hillary Clinton’s email server, The Wall Street Journal reported Wednesday.
Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) released a report Tuesday that included the exchange between FBI agent Peter Strzok and FBI attorney Lisa Page, arguing that the texts raised questions about Obama's involvement in the investigation into Clinton's email use.
The report highlights one exchange from September 2016 in which Page wrote, “Potus wants to know everything we’re doing.”
Associates of Strzok and Page, who were having an affair at the time, reportedly said the two were talking about Obama wanting information on Russian interference in the 2016 election.
The exchange occurred days before Obama met with Russian President Vladimir Putin and spoke to him about election tampering, The Wall Street Journal reported.
By the time the texts were sent, the FBI had closed its investigation into the Clinton email case. It did not reopen the case until October.
So President Obama wanted to know the extent of the Russian hacking before he confronted Vladimir Putin about it.
How dare he!
You know it was like he thought it was his job to keep this country safe from attack by a foreign government or something.
That is clearly not how his successor sees it.
At this point if there is a Republican running around saying the "sky is falling" it is not even worth the effort to look up.
