CNN’s Chris Cillizza isn’t alone in predicting that Republicans will pounce on a text from FBI agent Peter Strzok in which he assures Lisa Page that Trump won’t ever become president: “No. No he won’t. We’ll stop it,” Strzok replied.
But wait … there’s more!
Sohrab Ahmari of Commentary highlighted this text exchange between Page and Strzok that should put to rest any suspicions that the two had an active bias against Donald Trump. “Trump should go f himself” is just part of the exchange.

Check out this message that Page sent to Strzok, apparently inspired by Trump’s criticism of the Gold Star family who spoke at the DNC: “…maybe you’re meant to stay where you are because you’re meant to protect the country from that menace.”
Their hubris and that they view themselves as patriots and saviors of our "democracy" is beyond the pale. #Traitors

Liberals won't be shocked by this. They will concur, feel relieved that "good people" have their back deep inside the government. They'll see these love-birds as caped heroes.

"… I can protect our country at many levels…".
Protect it from the democratic process?

Instead of calling it a "deep state" – which is controversial and conspiracy-sounding – how about something like "just a few folks in law enforcement and intelligence who send each other pathos-soaked missives about using their positions to undermine electoral democracy"? https://t.co/f8qYYyLil4
