A text message exchange between Peter Strzok and Lisa Page is evidence that the FBI was “pulling punches” in its investigation into Hillary Clinton, a top Republican senator is alleging.
In a letter to FBI Director Christopher Wray, Iowa Sen. Chuck Grassley, the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, drew attention to a Feb. 25, 2016 text message exchanged between Strzok and Page. The message was included in seven pages of messages that Grassley released on Thursday.
The Justice Department recently provided six congressional committees with 384 pages of text messages between the pair.

Would love to read more on the corruption of the FBI and DOJ, but your link is dead.
Thanks in advance.

I wonder how many more "bombshells" and "explosive leaks" will come out before something is actually done? This is probably the thousandth "bombshell" so far and nothing has been done.
Would you like a sandwich while you watch the show?
WASHINGTON – Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) is today pressing the FBI for answers about a series of concerns raised in recently produced text messages exchanged between FBI officials Lisa Page and Peter Strzok.
In his letter to FBI Director Christopher Wray, Grassley first notes that the two FBI officials shared a worry about how they would be perceived by a future President Hillary Clinton if they conducted her interview “loaded for bear.”
Grassley also inquired about the FBI’s handling of appearances of conflicts of interest at the Justice Department and the FBI during the Clinton investigation and highlighted several texts that discuss potential for the appointment of a special prosecutor. The texts also indicate that then-Director James Comey’s chief of staff believed with “100%” certainty that Deputy Director Andrew McCabe should be recused from the investigation.
Lastly, Grassley raises concerns about several references in the text messages to communicating about FBI business on non-governmental systems, such as iMessage, and how such communication may impact their work investigating Secretary Clinton for alienation of federal records, which is a federal crime.

All the while CNN brings up "Russia Investigation" 61 times today and not a peep about any of this. Staggering.
I do not see any news reports on this just yet, will update if I find any within editing time. My original post was lost some how, apologies!
Grassley, an Iowa Republican, said Thursday in a letter to FBI Director Christopher Wray that the exchange, among others, concerned him.
“The text messages that were provided raise serious concerns about the impartiality of senior leadership running both the Clinton and Trump investigations,” Grassley said.
