Text messages exchanged between disgraced FBI lovebirds Peter Strzok and Lisa Page show the two discussing whether or not to open a “case” in a “formal chargeable way” after Director James Comey was fired. In light of Page’s congressional testimony revealing no evidence of collusion before the Mueller appointment, the texts raise questions regarding what this investigation is in fact all about. The text messages were among a batch of six months’ worth of “missing” messages covering December 2016 to May 2017, a critical gap in transparency blamed on software and technical glitches at the FBI. Translation: These texts were buried unsurprisingly because they likely revealed what we already know: the FBI colluded both to exonerate Hillary and then to defeat her opponent.

Text messages from disgraced FBI figures Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, discussing whether to open a “case” in a “formal chargeable way” after Director James Comey was fired, are under fresh scrutiny after Page told congressional investigators there was no evidence of Russian collusion at the time, according to three congressional sources.
Two hours after Comey’s termination became public on May 9, 2017, Strzok, a now-former FBI agent, texted Page, his then-colleague and lover: “We need to open the case we’ve been waiting on now while Andy is acting.”
“Andy” is a reference to then-Deputy Director Andrew McCabe who temporarily took over the bureau until Christopher Wray was confirmed as director in August 2017.
Page, a former FBI attorney, replied to Strzok: “We need to lock in (redacted). In a formal chargeable way. Soon.”
Strzok concurred. “I agree. I’ve been pushing and I’ll reemphasize with Bill,” believed to be Bill Priestap, the head of the FBI’s counterintelligence division.
