Republican Congressman Devin Nunes joined Sean Hannity to discuss the newly released text messages (see below) from FBI agents Peter Strzok and Lisa Page. Nunes also discusses the IG investigation into potential FISA abuses.
TRANSCRIPT: I was talking to a few members of Congress today. And these are people who don’t follow this closely. They’re not on the House Intelligence Committee but they follow it just by the news and they were shocked. They were shocked.
As a matter of fact they used a few expletives. They couldn’t believe that the White House the Obama White House was being briefed by the FBI on an investigation into the Trump Campaign.
They couldn’t believe it. The left has continued to say, “This is Watergate,” and, “Trump is going to be impeached.” They have continued that. Well now this has effectively boomeranged on them. And you have at least half of the American people now know that the other party, the Democrats, appear like they weaponized to some degree the intelligence services by using the foreign intelligence surveillance apparatus in this country to go and target the opposition campaign. It’s totally unacceptable. And that’s what happened here…Read more: Gateway Pundit
OUR PREVIOUS REPORT ON THE STRZOK/PAGE TEXT MESSAGES:
BOMBSHELL DOCUMENTS Expose Possible Coordination Between FBI, CIA, DOJ, Senate Dem Officials and Obama White House in Trump Russia Investigation
What we all suspected about the chummy relationship between intel agencies and the Obama administration has been exposed. New text messages between the FBI’s Peter Strzok and Lisa Page suggest a possible coordination between high-ranking officials at the Obama White House, CIA, FBI, Justice Department and former Senate Democratic leadership in the early stages of the investigation into alleged collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia, according to GOP congressional investigators on Wednesday.
This comes on the same day that the DOJ Inspector General announced he’s reviewing alleged FISA abuses by DOJ and FBI:
Fox News reports:
The investigators say the information provided to Fox News “strongly” suggests coordination between former President Barack Obama’s Chief of Staff Denis McDonough, then-Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid, and CIA Director John Brennan — which they say would “contradict” the Obama administration’s public stance about its hand in the process.
Page texted Strzok on Aug. 2, 2016, saying: “Make sure you can lawfully protect what you sign. Just thinking about congress, foia, etc. You probably know better than me.”
A text message from Strzok to Page on Aug. 3 described former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe as being concerned with “information control” related to the initial investigation into the Trump campaign. According to a report from the New York Times, Brennan was sent to Capitol Hill around the same time to brief members of Congress on the possibility of election interference.
Days later, on Aug. 8, 2016, Strzok texted Page: “Internal joint cyber cd intel piece for D, scenesetter for McDonough brief, Trainor [head of FBI cyber division] directed all cyber info be pulled. I’d let Bill and Jim hammer it out first, though it would be best for D to have it before the Wed WH session.”
In the texts, “D” referred to FBI Director James Comey, and and “McDonough” referred to Chief of Staff Denis McDonough, the GOP investigators said.
