Well, well, well—what do we have here; FBI officials discussing a media leak strategy during the Trump-Russia investigation, specifically when key developments are about to be revealed to the public. The new batch of texts was released by Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC), where disgraced former FBI Agent Peter Strzok and lawyer Lisa Page communicate about a possible media leak strategy between FBI and DOJ officials between April 10 and 12 of 2017. The Daily Caller has more:
“Our review of these new documents raises grave concerns regarding an apparent systemic culture of media leaking by high-ranking officials at the FBI and DOJ related to ongoing investigations,” Meadows wrote to U.S. Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein in the letter, which was obtained by The Daily Caller News Foundation and first reported by Sara Carter. . .
In the first message, Strzok, who then served as deputy chief of the FBI’s counterintelligence division, wrote to Page that: “I had literally just gone to find this phone to tell you I want to talk to you about media leak strategy with DOJ before you go.”
Strzok was at that time the lead investigator on the FBI’s probe into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian government. He joined the special counsel’s investigation after it was formed in May 2017. He was removed from the investigation in July 2017 after the discovery of anti-Trump text messages that he exchanged with Lisa Page. He was fired from the FBI on Aug. 10.
In one Aug. 8, 2016, message, Strzok told Page that President Donald Trump would never become president, because “We’ll stop it.”
