As Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian influence in the 2016 election continues, two former members of his team are under scrutiny for text messages they exchanged about President Trump and the probe.
In the messages, Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, who were romantically involved, bashed Trump and discussed concerns about being too tough on Hillary Clinton during an investigation into the use of her private email server.
Overall, the pair exchanged some 50,000 text messages throughout the presidential election and first year of the Trump administration, many of them with anti-Trump sentiments.
In one particular message, when Page asked if Trump would ever become president, Strzok reportedly replied, “No. No he won’t. We’ll stop it.”
Other text messages showed an allegiance for fired FBI Director James Comey.
