The longer the various investigations into who did what, and when the authorities knew about it drags on… the more it seems that it was our government doing something wrong during the 2016 election season.
The latest series of realizations come from more texts between the FBI Lovers, Peter Strzok and Lisa Page. What makes these revelations even more damning is that they had originally been redacted as “private” correspondence between the two lovers, but in reality the messages had nothing to do with their relationship and everything to do with ongoing criminal activities within our government.
These previously hidden texts seem to indicate that the Obama administration was working with the FBI on the campaign to undermine Donald Trump.
If true this, of course, would prove as false the former president’s claim that he was not involved in FBI business. Byron York is chief political correspondent for The Washington Examiner. He joins us tonight.
Byron, what do we learn from these?
BYRON YORK, WASHINGTON EXAMINER: First of all it’s not a new set of texts, that is one thing we learned. This is not new batch that went over to Congress. These texts were released earlier and they were redacted and blacked out. And remember what the Justice Department said to Congress. Well, Strzok and Page are having an affair. I mean, that’s private stuff, personal stuff, so we are going to black that out. And Congress said fine. And then they started looking at what was sent over and there were things like, ‘meeting tomorrow in so and so’s office’ and the name would be blacked out and they thought well, that doesn’t sound like personal stuff. And some of these names were names like Denis McDonough, the Chief of Staff in the Obama White House.
So, that has made a number of members of the House, House Judiciary Committee very suspicious of what they are getting from Congress — from the Justice Department on this.
Now, the bigger picture is, they have been trying to find out how far knowledge of things like the Trump dossier, the allegations in the Trump dossier, how far did that go up the chain in the Obama administration? Remember, we first thought it was just a few people at the FBI. Then it went higher in the FBI. Then it was the State Department. And now, it looks like, the White House, too.
The further we go down this rabbit hole, the more it seems that the only innocent party in all of this… is Donald Trump.
