More texts between FBI lovers Peter Strzok and Lisa Page reveal that Obama was closely monitoring the FBI investigations.
This is a game changer. In an April 2016 interview with Chris Wallace, Obama repeated many times that he has never gotten involved in investigations by the FBI or the DOJ.
Here is the transcript:
WALLACE: Mr. President, when you say what you’ve just said, when Josh Earnest said, as he did — your spokesman — in January, the information from the Justice Department is she’s not a target, some people I think are worried whether or not — the decision whether or not, how to handle the case, will be made on political grounds, not legal grounds.
Can you guarantee to the American people, can you direct the Justice Department to say, “Hillary Clinton will be treated — as the evidence goes, she will not be in any way protected.”
OBAMA: I can guarantee that. And I can guarantee that, not because I give Attorney General Lynch a directive, that is institutionally how we have always operated.
I do not talk to the Attorney General about pending investigations. I do not talk to FBI directors about pending investigations. We have a strict line, and always have maintained it, the previous president.
WALLACE: So, just to button this up —
OBAMA: I guarantee it.
WALLACE: You —
OBAMA: I guarantee that there is no political influence in any investigation conducted by the Justice Department, or the FBI, not just in this case, but in any case.
WALLACE: And she will be —
OBAMA: Full stop. Period.
WALLACE: And she will be treated no different —
OBAMA: Guaranteed. Full stop. Nobody gets treated differently when it comes to the Justice Department because nobody is above the law.
WALLACE: Even if she ends up as the Democratic nominee?
OBAMA: How many times do I have to say it, Chris? Guaranteed.
Is this another case of Obama lying through his teeth? Apparently so. Here are some text messages between Lisa Page and Peter Strzok.
From The Daily Caller
“Potus wants to know everything we’re doing,” Page told Strzok in a text message dated Sept 2, 2016. Page then described preparing former FBI director James Comey to brief Obama on the details of a particular investigation.
Page also revealed in her text messages with the Strzok that former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe knew of emails discovered on Clinton aide Huma Abedin’s computer on Sept 28, 2016.
Comey did not notify Congress of this batch of emails until days before the election on October 28, 2016. The delay in notification and the role McCabe played in the investigation is reportedly an item of interest for FBI inspector general Michael Horowitz in a new report.
“POTUS wants to know everything that we’re doing.” Does that sound like Obama didn’t get involved?
