Trump Lawyers Want Second Special Counsel To Oversee Mueller

US Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein

The agents, Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, had exchanged text messages about the future president during the 2016 campaign trail, NBC said.

The Republican Party "needs to pull their head out of their ass", Strzok suggested, according to USA Today's reporting.

Page replies: "Yeah, that's not good".

Jay Sekulow confirmed his remarks, which were first reported by Axios, in which he said the DOJ and Federal Bureau of Investigation can no longer ignore the "multiple problems" created by "obvious conflicts of interest" while a special counsel investigates allegations of collusion between Russian Federation and Trump's presidential campaign.

That conversation, which takes place after 2 in the morning, includes Strzok texting: "God, Hillary should win 100,000,000-0".

That same month, Strzok wrote that he's "worried about what happens if [Clinton] is elected, " though he doesn't explain his concern. Page responds, "Trump? Yes, I think so".

Days after the election, Page texted to say she bought "All the President's Men, " a book about Nixon and Watergate, because "I needed to brush up on Watergate".

In recent weeks, Democrats and some Republicans have urged the Trump administration to allow Mueller's investigation to unfold unobstructed.

During the presidential campaign, according to Fox News, Ohr also met with Christopher Steele, the former British intelligence operative who authored a dossier that documented Trump's alleged ties to Russian Federation.

Describing the moment Clinton won the nomination, Strzok texted his friend, "Chills, just because I'm a homer for American democracy that way".

Critics say the pair's political views questions the impartiality of Mueller's ongoing investigation.

In a statement released on December 2, Sessions said the allegations that Strzok sent anti-Trump communications "would raise serious questions of public trust" if proven to be true. That effort has picked up traction after Mueller obtained several guilty pleas from former Trump associates, including former national security adviser Mike Flynn and former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort.

The FBI also released a statement saying it has "clearly defined policies and procedures regarding appropriate employee conduct, including communications".
