Fox News reported that texts between FBI agent Peter Strzok and FBI attorney Lisa Page included an exchange about preparing talking points for then-FBI Director James ComeyJames Brien ComeyMystery surrounds Justice's pledge on journalist records NYT publisher: DOJ phone records seizure a 'dangerous incursion' on press freedom Trump DOJ seized phone records of New York Times reporters MORE to give to Obama, who “wants to know everything we’re doing.”

The pair also worked on special counsel Robert MuellerRobert (Bob) MuellerSenate Democrats urge Garland not to fight court order to release Trump obstruction memo Why a special counsel is guaranteed if Biden chooses Yates, Cuomo or Jones as AG Barr taps attorney investigating Russia probe origins as special counsel MORE's team investigating Russia's interference in the 2016 election, and whether Trump's campaign was involved.

Some Republicans argue the new exchange is evidence that Obama was more involved in the Clinton email probe than previously known.

But the texts were sent in September, roughly two months after Comey announced he would not recommend criminal charges against Clinton for using a personal email server as secretary of State.

The texts were sent three days before Obama was scheduled to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin at the G-20 summit in China, meaning that the messages could have been about the Russia investigation and not the Clinton probe. 

Nevertheless, Trump and his GOP allies have seized on Strzok and Page's texts as proof that the Russia investigation is politically motivated.

The two criticized Trump in a series of previously released text messages during the 2016 campaign, but they were also critical of other politicians.

Democrats accuse Trump of using the texts to undermine special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation, which is looking into whether the president obstructed justice and whether any ties exist between Moscow and his campaign.

Trump latest tweet came 10 minutes after his daily intelligence briefing was set to begin, suggesting the president was running behind schedule.
