(National Sentinel)Â The Swamp: AfterÂ Fox News on Wednesday published some of more than 10,000 text messages sent between FBI counterintelligence agent Peter Strzok and FBI lawyer and mistress Lisa Page, in which the two disparaged President Donald J. Trump, a new report on Thursday appears to ensnare FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe in more controversy.
Among the messages is an exchange revealing Strzok and Page discussed an â€˜insurance policy,â€™ against a Trump presidency, and that conversation may well have taken place in front of McCabe or with the deputy director’s involvement,Â The Daily Caller noted.
On Wednesday morning, Fox News reporter Bret Baier tweeted the following: â€œText-from Peter Strzok to Lisa Page (Andy is Andrew McCabe): â€œI want to believe the path u threw out 4 consideration in Andyâ€™s office-that thereâ€™s no way he gets elected-but Iâ€™m afraid we canâ€™t take that risk.Itâ€™s like an insurance policy in unlikely event u die be4 youâ€™re 40.â€

The Daily Caller reported further:
Two FBI officials who worked on Special Counsel Robert Muellerâ€™s Russia investigation exchanged text messages last year in which they appear to have discussed ways to prevent Donald Trump from being elected president.
The report comes the same day that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein is appearing before the House Judiciary Committee to answer questions about ongoing scandals including those related to the man he appointed as special counsel, Robert Mueller.
Critics of Strzok’s and Page’s cryptic messaging point out that it’s unlikely that the pair would have been discussing the issue at hand alone in McCabe’s office. That reality, they say, makes it even more ominous since it’s also likely that McCabe offered his own views on the topic.
The Daily Beastâ€˜s Lachlan Markay noted, â€œThis looks very bad.â€
