from Sputnik News:
US Department of Justice released a new trove of text messages exchanged between Peter Strzok and Lisa Page – two FBI officials engaged in an affair and members of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into US President Donald Trump’s alleged collusion with Russia.
A new set of recently-released documents reveals that two FBI officials who were working on a team investigating the so called Russiagate conspiracy were somehow aware of the outcome of another high-profile probe conducted by the agency before it had actually concluded.
According to Fox News, in one series of messages dated July 1, 2016, Strzok and Page discuss the decision made by then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch “to accept the FBI’s conclusion in the Clinton investigation.” Lynch made her announcement mere days after she held a meeting with ex-President Bill Clinton on the tarmac in Phoenix.
Anti-Trump FBI agent Peter Strzok, who oversaw the Clinton investigation, said there was pressure to end the criminal probe into Clinton once Trump secured the GOP nomination.

“Timing looks like hell,” Strzok texted, to which Page agreed, adding that “it’s a real profile in courage [sic], since she knows no charges will be brought.”
Earlier in June 2017, former FBI Director James Comey complained during the Senate Intelligence Committee hearings that Lynch’s behavior influenced some of his decisions made during the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s private email server use.
This revelation did not sit well with some people, who went to express their emotions on Twitter.
Nothing says corruption like another Hillary scandal.
