(National Sentinel) Scandal: Republicans in Congress a focusing on an anti-Trump text message exchanged between FBI agent Peter Strzok and FBI lawyer Lisa Page that seems to implicate current FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe in an “insurance policy” aimed at keeping Donald J. Trump out of office.
As reported by Fox News, the text message was revealed on Tuesday after the Justice Department released hundreds of messages between Strzok and Page, who were having an extramarital affair.
“I want to believe the path you threw out for consideration in Andy’s office — that there’s no way he [Trump] gets elected — but I’m afraid we can’t take that risk,” Strzok texted on Aug. 15, 2016.
“It’s like an insurance policy in the unlikely event you die before you’re 40.”
Some lawmakers are convinced that “Andy” refers to McCabe, and want to know more from him about his communications with Page and Strzok.
“This is just one of several new revelations that have cast doubt on the FBI’s integrity and objectivity,” Fox News reported.
Newly released documents obtained by the network also reveal that then-FBI Director James Comey’s draft statement on the Hillary Clinton email probe was edited numerous times in ways that seemed to water down the bureau’s findings.
A growing number of Republicans are not only convinced that the FBI played a highly politicized role in last year’s presidential election on behalf of Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, but that the bureau and Obama’s Department of Justice also worked to actively undermine the campaign of a political rival.
On Wednesday during an appearance on Fox Business‘ Lou Dobbs program, Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, stated he believes that Congress has “proof” the FBI worked against the Republican Party in undermining Trump.
“Listen you can’t make this stuff up. It gets worse each and every day,” Jordan told Dobbs.
“What deep down scares me, if this actually happened the FBI had a concerted effort with the people at the top to go after one party’s nominee to help the other party’s nominee,” he continued.
“If that actually happened in the United States of America and everything each and every day points to more and more likely that that is what took place, it is sad for our country if that took place.
“And I think it did based on everything I am seeing. All the evidence points to that,” he noted.
