Anti-Trump DOJ employees Peter Strzok and Lisa Page were “angry” and in “mourning” in the immediate aftermath of President Trump’s decision to fire former FBI Director James Comey, according to dozens of recently released text messages.
The latest trove of text communications between the officials went public Thursday night; highlighting Strzok and Page’s severe anti-Trump bias and rage over the FBI chief’s ouster.
“Having a tough time processing tonight, Lis. Feeling a profound sense of loss,” wrote Strzok.
“I feel that same loss,” Page fired-back. “I want to see what the FBI could become under him! His vision of greatness for our strong but flawed organization. I’m angry. Angry and mourning.”
The communications are the latest in a series of exchanges that demonstrated unprecedented levels of abuse and bias throughout the Department of Justice both during and after the 2016 race for the White House.
