President Donald Trump again blasted former FBI employees Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, saying newly revealed text messages between the two are “a disaster and embarrassment.”
His comments came in a pair of tweets Thursday morning. They follow a Fox News’ report that said text messages between Strzok and Page reveal others were “leaking like mad” in the run-up to the Trump-Russia collusion probe.
A December 15, 2016 exchange between the two appears to reveal a possible leak operation for “political” purposes, according to the news network.
Trump made his feelings known about the report on Twitter.
“More text messages between former FBI employees Peter Strzok and Lisa Page are a disaster and embarrassment to the FBI & DOJ,” he wrote. “This should never have happened but we are learning more and more by the hour. ‘Others were leaking like mad’ in order to get the President! …….
“…..’It is a cesspool of corruption, and the people who did this need to be brought to justice.’ @GreggJarrett
Trump quoted Fox News’ Gregg Jarrett in the second tweet. Jarrett had made his comments Wednesday night during an interview with Fox News’ Sean Hannity.
