The text messages appear to clearly state that Barack Obama wanted all the details of the investigation into Hillary Clinton's email scandal. This would mean that Obama was well aware of everything that was taking place at the time.
According to Fox News, the text messages between FBI paramours Peter Strzok and Lisa Page include an exchange about preparing talking points for then-FBI Director James Comey to give to President Obama, who wanted "to know everything we're doing." The message, from Page to Strzok, was among thousands of texts between the lovers. The pair both worked at one point for Special Counsel Robert Mueller's probe of alleged collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.
Page also revealed in her text messages with the Strzok that former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe knew of emails discovered on Clinton aide Huma Abedin's computer on Sept 28, 2016. Comey did not notify Congress of this batch of emails until days before the election on October 28, 2016. The delay in notification and the role McCabe played in the investigation is reportedly an item of interest for FBI inspector general Michael Horowitz in a new report.
