Wouldn’t it be something else if all it took was a text to shine a light on what really transpired via the Obama administration during the 2016 election?
Seems to me the headline here should have been the quote cited by Peter Strzok, attributed to a redacted source, saying “The White House is running this”, referring in August 2016 to the opening of the Trump counter-intelligence investigation. https://t.co/UOaNDZNQL7

From The National Review:
As was his won’t several times a day, Strzok texted his paramour, Lisa Page, the FBI lawyer in the lofty position of counsel to Deputy Director Andrew McCabe — which made Page one of the relative handful of Bureau officials who were in on the new probe. Late Sunday night, as he readied for his morning flight, Strzok wrote to Page, comparing the investigations of Clinton and Trump.
‘And damn this feels momentous. Because this matters. The other one did, too, but that was to ensure that we didn’t F something up. This matters because this MATTERS.’
A text from an FBI agent in 2016 says “the White House is running this”, referring to the opening of the Trump investigation, and today’s press corps pays it no attention. It’s amazing the press looks the other way. And they wonder why people think they’re biased. https://t.co/A9kZ6v1cws

The story continues …
Finally, after some back-and-forth over who should be invited to a major meeting about the new case, a meeting was held. In the aftermath, at about 4:30 p.m., Strzok and Page had the following exchange:
Strzok: And hi. Went well, best we could have expected. Other than [REDACTED] quote: “the White House is running this.” My answer, “well, maybe for you they are.” And of course, I was planning on telling this guy, thanks for coming, we’ve got an hour, but with Bill [Priestap] there, I’ve got no control….
The White House is running this.
And yes, the media is working overtime to spin this. Heck, we just wrote a story about Brian Stelter doing JUST that.
What 4 years can do… In 2012 Obama ridiculed Romney for calling Russia America’s #1 “…geopolitical threat…”, to then, in 2016, use Russian collusion as an excuse to investigate & infiltrate Trump’s presidential campaign.

What was it Obama said? The 80’s called, they want their foreign policy back?
More than looking the other way, they are covering and shielding him to the best of their ability.

The media is reliable in that way.
Yeah, we don't think they are biased…we KNOW they are biased. I find it comical that people want to keep questioning it and republicans continue to complain about it. MSM is not news media. It's all propaganda for the left…PERIOD.

They would be better off to just admit it.
We see you.
