UPDATE [2/7/18, 4:20 p.m. EST]: According to FBI associates of Lisa Page and Peter Strzok who spoke with the Wall Street Journal, the 2016 text messages “show preparation to brief Barack Obama about Russia’s interference in that year’s election … not, as a Republican senator suggested, meddling by the then-president in the federal Hillary Clinton email investigation.”
On Wednesday morning, newly released text messages between Lisa Page and Peter Strzok of the FBI raised questions over former President Barack Obama’s involvement in the bureau’s investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server.
In one text from September 2016, while discussing her preparation of talking points for then-FBI Director James Comey, Page informed Strzok that the president wanted “to know everything we’re doing.”

Strzok and Page later worked on special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into potential ties between the Trump campaign and Russia. Page only worked on the investigation temporarily, according to Fox News, but Strzok was reassigned after the texts were made public.
