New FBI Texts Suggest Obama’s Involvement in Hillary Email Investigation

Newly released text messages between FBI officials Peter Strzok and Lisa Page raise questions about the extent of President Barack Obama’s involvement in the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s misuse of her private email server.

In a message dated Sept. 2, 2016 — just two months before Election Day — Page wrote to Strzok about getting then-FBI Director James Comey ready to brief Obama.

Page’s reasoning was that;

“potus wants to know everything we’re doing.”

The texts shed more light on the timing of Comey’s Oct. 28 announcement that the FBI was reopening the investigation into Hillary Clinton's private email server misuse.

Just days before the election, Comey sent a letter to Congress explaining that the FBI had discovered more emails related to the Clinton case on former New York Rep. Anthony Weiner’s laptop.

One month before Comey announced the discovery of the new emails, Strzok suggested in a text to Page that the FBI already was aware of their existence.

“Got called up to (then-FBI Deputy director) Andy’s (McCabe) earlier.. hundreds of thousands of emails turned over by Weiner’s atty to sdny (Southern District of New York), includes a ton of material from spouse (Huma Abedin). Sending team up tomorrow to review… this will never end,” he wrote in a message dated Sept. 28.

“In connection with an unrelated case, the FBI has learned of the existence of emails that appear to be pertinent to the investigation. I am writing to inform you that the investigative team briefed me on this yesterday,” Comey said at the time.
