Both Twitchy and the New York Times covered those anti-Trump texts exchanged by FBI agents Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, although the New York Times left out of its story what many consider to be the most damning one — the one where Strzok wrote, “I want to believe the path you threw out for consideration in Andy’s office — that there’s no way he [Trump] gets elected — but I’m afraid we can’t take that risk. It’s like an insurance policy in the unlikely event you die before you’re 40…”

Since the messages — in which Strzok and Page called Donald Trump an “idiot” and a “loathsome human” while investigating him — went public, sources have come forward to explain. You see, the “insurance policy” wasn’t a hedge against Trump being elected at all … it referred to aggressively investigating collusion between Trump and Russia.

From The Wall Street Journal:

An FBI agent’s reference to “an insurance policy” in a much-debated text message was meant to convey that the bureau needed to aggressively investigate allegations of collusion between Donald Trump’s campaign and Russia, according to people familiar with his account.

The agent didn’t intend to suggest a secret plan to harm the candidate but rather address a colleague who believed the Federal Bureau of Investigation could take its time because Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton was certain to win the election, the people said.

See, it was just a reminder they needed to work really hard. Some context while you consider that scenario:

OK then.
