Attorney General Sessions announced earlier this week that he would not be appointing a second special counsel for the purpose of investigating FBI collusion…yet.
But that’s when the DOJ IG announced he’d be investigating FISA warrant abuse.
And now evidence from newly-released texts between Peter Strzok and Lisa Page may give enough excuse for AG Sessions to appoint a special counsel in the not too distant future.
According to the texts, there was likely coordination between Andrew McCabe’s staff, then-Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) and White House staff to establish the Russia collusion story in order to undermine the Trump campaign ahead of the election.
So it’s no coincidence at all when Hillary staff announced on the night of their election loss that the narrative they’d push for why they lost was none other than the Russia collusion story.
Here’s more from Redstate…
In an investigation that has more twists and turns than an episode of “House of Cards” (when it was still good), newly revealed text messages between ertswhile lovers and FBI officials Peter Strzok and Lisa Page seem to suggest that there may have been coordination between very high-ranking Democratic officials — even the Obama White House — and the CIA, FBI and Department of Justice very early on in the investigation of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia. So early, in fact, the new evidence lends credence to the suspicion that there was a covert, behind-the-scenes effort to promote the collusion narrative before the investigation had actually begun.
The investigators say the information provided to Fox News “strongly” suggests coordination between former President Barack Obama’s Chief of Staff Denis McDonough, then-Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid, and CIA Director John Brennan — which they say would “contradict” the Obama administration’s public stance about its hand in the process.
Page texted Strzok on Aug. 2, 2016, saying: “Make sure you can lawfully protect what you sign. Just thinking about congress, foia, etc. You probably know better than me.”
A text message from Strzok to Page on Aug. 3 described former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe as being concerned with “information control” related to the initial investigation into the Trump campaign. According to a report from the New York Times, Brennan was sent to Capitol Hill around the same time to brief members of Congress on the possibility of election interference.
