While the text message is hard to understand, it suggests that there was no Russian collusion spotted after 10 months of investigating.
It Peter Strzok, who hated Trump, found no Russian collusion, then we can be fairly certain there is none to find. And that is what he texts FBI lawyer Lisa Page with whom he was having an extramarital affair. He was explaining to her why he was having doubts about working for the Mueller investigation. His doubts were due to the fact that he hadn’t seen anything that indicated the Trump team was guilty of colluding with the Kremlin.
The Daily Caller reports, “Source: Strzok Hadn’t Seen Evidence of Collusion After 10 Months on Russia Probe.”
After 10 months of leading the FBI’s Trump-Russia investigation, counterintelligence official Peter Strzok had not seen compelling evidence that President Trump or high-level campaign officials colluded with the Russian government, according to a person familiar with his thinking.
That account comports with a May 19, 2017 text exchange between Strzok and FBI lawyer Lisa Page that was released earlier this week.
“You and I both know the odds are nothing. If I thought it was likely, I’d be there no question. I hesitate in part because of my gut sense and concern that there’s no big there there,” Strzok wrote to Page, his mistress.
Wisconsin Sen. Ron Johnson, the chairman of the Senate Homeland Security Committee, disclosed the “jaw-dropping” text earlier this week. He said that the message suggested that the FBI investigators had seen no evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian government.
It was unclear exactly what Strzok meant by the message, but the source close to Strzok affirmed that interpretation of the exchange to The Daily Caller.
