Charles Grassley (R-Iowa) and Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) shows a connection between those involved in the dossier and the Hillary Clinton campaign, as well as the Obama State Department.

In previously released texts, the pair voiced their dislike of other politicians, including the President while he was running for office.

Republicans on a key US Senate committee released an interim report on Wednesday that they said raises serious questions about how the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) conducted its investigation into the private email server of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

After Clinton conceded the election to Trump, Page wrote: "Omg, I am so depressed".

The Justice Department turned the messages over last month to six congressional committees, including Johnson's.

In July 2016, when Comey defended to Congress the bureau's decision not to seek charges against Clinton for her use of a private email server, Strzok and Page traded admiring texts about his verbal dexterity.

In a text from August 2016, Page told Strzok that he was "meant to protect the country from that menace", referring to Trump.

PadMan challenge spreads over social media like wildfire
PadMan is based on "The Sanitary Man of Sacred Land", a short story from Twinkle Khanna's book, The Legend of Lakshmi Prasad . People always make documentaries but they don't want to make commercial films because they want to shy away from the issue.

Conservatives - including the president- quickly pounced on the texts.

In the new text message chain from September 2, 2016, Page mentioned Obama in the context of a briefing for then-FBI director James Comey.

"Potus wants to know everything we're doing", she said, according to Fox, using shorthand for then-President Barack Obama. She said that she had just been in a meeting to discuss "TPs for D" (talking points for the director, i.e. FBI Director James Comey) to brief the president on their investigation.

An Obama spokesman did not return messages seeking comment.

Strzok and Page were both heavily involved in the email investigation as well as the Russian Federation collusion investigation.

Page and Strzok did seem to contemplate the interplay of their work with politics and its broader impact. Johnson released a report to accompany the emails called "THE CLINTON EMAIL SCANDAL AND THE FBI'S INVESTIGATION OF IT". "I unleashed it with MYE. Figure I need to brush up on Watergate". "I hesitate in part because of my gut sense and concern that there's no big there there", Strzok wrote. And his views, while decidedly anti-Trump, are also complicated.

It's worth noting that the text exchange reveals that those emails were found on September 28, 2016, a month before Comey publicly informed Congress about reopening the probe. HRC is a reference to Clinton. We have a strict line and always have maintained it. He was also, briefly, a member of special counsel Robert Mueller's team investigating ties between Russian Federation and Donald Trump's presidential campaign.
