As revelations from the texts of FBI lovers Peter Strzok and Lisa Page continue to come at a steady pace, more is being learned not only about the efforts to exonerate Hillary Clinton from any wrongdoing in the investigation into her illegal email set-up, but also about the possible involvement of then-President Barack Obama.
Strzok and Page exchanged a mind-boggling 50,000 texts during the course of their affair at the FBI often resorting to obscenities as they shared their hatred of Donald Trump, and contempt for Republican voters in Virginia who they called “ignorant hillbillies” [sic] that they could “smell.”
Amid the texts that have been released to the public so far, one, in particular, may prove to be impossible for Democrats – and former President Obama – to explain away.
Even though Obama assured the American public that he knew nothing of Clinton’s secret and illegal email server set-up until he learned about it through the media, original drafts of documents provided to then-Director of the FBI James Comey showed that Clinton used the unsecured set-up to communicate with the president while she was in Russia, and possibly in other foreign countries that had the capacity to capture the emails.
The president used a pseudonym in the email correspondence, but it is doubtful he would not have recognized the non-governmental email address of his Secretary of State.
According to the text exchange, Strzok removed President Obama’s name and substituted “another senior government official” from documents that went to Comey.
Eventually, the reference was completely deleted from the statement Comey delivered to the public when he announced the end of the FBI investigation on July 5, 2016, just three days after Clinton was interviewed.
The purposeful omission of the Obama reference served to bolster Comey’s conclusion that Clinton was only “extremely careless” rather than “grossly negligent” in using the unsecured email, and thus not in violation of federal statutes regarding the handling of classified material while undercutting Obama’s claim that he was unaware of her email set-up.
Communication with the Commander-in-Chief on such a “homebrew” system anywhere, but especially in a foreign country, would have posed an almost insurmountable problem for Clinton in any prosecution.
Stay tuned as more texts are released with additional revelations courtesy of the overly chatty FBI lovers.
