Wisconsin Senator Ron Johnson revealed in an interview on Tuesday morning that Anti-Trump FBI agent Peter Strzok sent a “jaw-dropping” text where he ADMITS that the Trump campaign is NOT guilty of collusion with the Russian government!
The interview aired on WISN-Milwaukee radio, and he read out loud the May 19th, 2017 text that Strzok sent about the investigation.
Here’s what it actually reads (from the Daily Caller):
Strzok wrote: “You and I both know the odds are nothing. If I thought it was likely, I’d be there no question. I hesitate in part because of my gut sense and concern that there’s no big there there.”
Johnson said that the text referred to the Mueller investigation, which had kicked off two days earlier. Strzok joined that team, but was removed in July after the Justice Department’s inspector general discovered his anti-Trump text exchanges with Page.
As the FBI’s deputy counterintelligence chief, Strzok was picked in July 2016 to oversee the investigation into possible Trump campaign collusion with the Russian government. Prior to that, he was a top investigator on the Clinton email inquiry.
“I think that’s kind of jaw-dropping,” said Johnson, a Republican, said of the Strzok text.
“In other words, Peter Strzok, who was the FBI deputy assistant director of the counterintelligence division, the man who had a plan to do something because he just couldn’t abide Donald Trump being president, is saying that his gut sense is that there’s no big there there when it comes to the Mueller special counsel investigation,” he said.
The text message was included in 400 pages of text messages exchanged between Strzok and Page. Lawmakers have started reviewing the trove of documents for evidence of anti-Trump and pro-Clinton bias.
Here’s the full text verbatim:
The Strozk text verbatim on joining the Mueller investigation: May 19th, 2017- ‘You and I both know the odds are nothing. If I thought it was likely, I’d be there no question. I hesitate in part because of my gut sense and concern that there’s no big there there.’

As we told you earlier, Trey Gowdy revealed that “Secret Society” was discussed between Anti-Trump FBI agents right after the 2016 election:
Also, the FBI has “lost” 5 months worth of these text messages from the Anti-Trump agents:
4 days after Lynch met w/Bill on tarmac, Strzok texted Page: “Timing looks like hell. Will appear choreographed.” Page responds, “It’s real profile in courage since she knows no charges will be brought.” Undercuts Comey claim that he acted alone when recommending against charges. pic.twitter.com/7ZNJlzkSQ7
