(National Sentinel)Â Busted: A series of new texts between anti-Trump FBI agent Peter Strzok and his mistress, FBI lawyer Lisa Page, revealed that President Barack Obama may have been directly involved in the probe of Hillary Clinton’s misuse of classified emails.
As reported byÂ Fox News, Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., along with the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, is releasing the texts, along with a report entitled, “The Clinton Email Scandal and the FBI’s Investigation of It.”
In a Sept. 2, 2016, text to Strzok about preparing talking points for then-FBI Director James Comey to give to President Obama, Page said it was important to do so becauseÂ “potus wants to know everything we’re doing.”
“Potus” is the acronym for “president of the United States.”
That text exchange is the first evidence that Obama was likely kept in the loop as the Trump spying scandal unfolded.
Fox News reported further:
Among the newly disclosed texts, Strzok also calls Virginians who voted against then-FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe’s wife for a state Senate seat “ignorant hillbillys.” (sic)
That text came from Strzok to Page on Nov. 4, 2015, the day after Jill McCabe lost a hotly contested Virginia state Senate election. Strzok said of the result, “Disappointing, but look at the district map. Loudon is being gentrified, but it’s still largely ignorant hillbillys. Good for her for running, but curious if she’s energized or never again.”
The revelation that Obama was keeping tabs on the probe involving Clinton’s mishandling of classified emails make it more likely that he was also staying abreast of the ongoing counterintelligence operation against Trump campaign staffers.
Earlier,Â The National Sentinel reported that Obama had other ways to find out what was happening with his FBI and Justice Department in terms of securing surveillance warrants from the secretive Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court.
Not only does the attorney general — Loretta Lynch at the time — have to sign off on all FISA surveillance requests, but such requests are generally included in the President’s Daily Brief.
As the Brookings Institute noted in a policy paper arguing for the Trump administration to renew legislation reauthorizing Section 702 of the FISA Act, which clarifiesÂ warrant requirements of the Act, information gathered via FISA warrants â€œsometimes known as PRISM, comprises a large part of the Presidentâ€™s Daily Brief.â€Â
Also, last week Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa, warned Americans to “watch for Obama’s fingerprints” all over the FISA court abuses.
â€œWatch closely for Barack Obamaâ€™s fingerprints,â€ King toldÂ Breitbart News Radio.Â â€œ[Democrats and their allies]Â will defend Barack Obama at all costs, and theyâ€™ll defend Hillary Clinton almost at all costs unless they have to sacrifice her to protect Barack Obama.â€
