WSJ: Texts From 2016 Show FBI Employees Preparing Obama Briefing on Russia
Exchange doesn’t relate to Clinton email probe, as a Republican senator suggests

LINK

quote:

Text messages from 2016 show preparation to brief Barack Obama about Russia’s interference in that year’s election, according to associates of the FBI employees involved in the exchange, not, as a Republican senator suggested, meddling by the then-president in the federal Hillary Clinton email investigation.


quote:

While The Wall Street Journal obtained many of the text messages between the two staffers last week, reporting that they showed no overall conspiracy against Mr. Trump, Republicans and the president himself have cited the messages as evidence that the Russian probe amounts to a wider plot to undermine him.


quote:

“Potus wants to know everything we’re doing,” Ms. Page said, using the acronym for President of the United States. Mr. Johnson said the text raises questions about “the type and extent of President Obama’s personal involvement” in the Clinton investigation.

But associates of Mr. Strzok and Ms. Page said that exchange referred to the president’s wanting information on Russia election meddling, which the FBI was heavily involved in over that period. That exchange occurred just days before Mr. Obama met Russian President Vladimir Putin at a summit in China. Mr. Obama said in December 2016 that he had addressed the issue of tampering with the election process with Mr. Putin at that September meeting.


quote:

In August and September 2016, the FBI was no longer actively investigating the Clinton matter, after Mr. Comey had said that July that he was recommending no criminal charges be filed. In late October 2016, the FBI ramped up its investigation into Mrs. Clinton again when the bureau learned about a potential trove of new Clinton-related emails on the computer belonging to the husband of one of her aides. Mrs. Clinton and her allies have cited that announcement as a big factor in her election loss.

This was posted earlier today.

Not my circus...not my monkeys. But, this should be easily checked to see if it is correct.

Everything isn't fine, but there's not some major conspiracy.

Remember when Ron Johnson talked about a secret society and in informant? What happened to all that?

He is now proven twice to be a non-reliable source.

Why did Comey replace "President" with "Senior Governmental Official" when briefing the American public that the FBI would not be recommending charges for Hillary?

If you're correct and the President was briefed 2 full months before the election about Russian meddling and interference, how is it possible that, with the trillions of dollars in military and intelligence resources, we weren't able to stop it, as HRC and her Deep State allies keep claiming said interference still occurred?

So they don't show that Obama was involved in covering up for Hillary, they show that he was involved in her using the FBI to spy on a political opponent.

And you're happy about this????
