So, What’s This ‘Insurance Policy’ Against Trump That These FBI Agents Discussed In Text Messages?
So, What’s This ‘Insurance Policy’ Against Trump That These FBI Agents Discussed In Text Messages?  
Editor's Note: Strzok was removed by Mueller in August, not
July.Post has been corrected and updated.

Piggybacking off of Katie and Cortney on these texts
between FBI agents Peter Strzok and Lisa Page. Strzok was
on Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s team investigating
possible collusion between the Trump campaign and the
Russians, but was removed in August once these texts
became public knowledge;Page had already moved on from
the Mueller assignment. Page is the woman with home Strzok
was having an extramarital affair.The texts are filled with
Hillary praising and Trump bashing. At one point, Page says
that Trump should go f**k himself, and that he’s a “loathsome
human.” That’s one of 10,000 text messagesshared between
these two agents. Yet, in more cryptic texts, Strzok mentions
an insurance policy against this presidency
(via Daily Caller):

Two FBI officials who worked on Special Counsel Robert
Mueller’s Russia investigation exchanged text messages last
year in which they appear to have discussed ways to prevent
Donald Trump from being elected president.

“I want to believe the path you threw out for consideration in
Andy’s office — that there’s no way [Trump] gets elected —
but I’m afraid we can’t take that risk,” FBI counterintelligence
official Peter Strzok wrote in a cryptic text message to Lisa
Page, an FBI lawyer and his mistress.

“It’s like an insurance policy in the unlikely event you die
before you’re 40,” Strzok wrote in the text, dated Aug. 15, 2016.

Andy is likely Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe.

Well, the FBI’s counterintelligence investigation into Russian
interference began in July of 2016. It’s possible that’s what
theywere referring to, but overall—it’s still quite unsettling to
see members of our nation’s preeminent law enforcement
and intelligence agencies thinking of ways to screw over the
nextpresident of the United States simply because they don’t
like him or her. If that’s the case, as I’ve always said for those
in government work, resign and move on. We’ll keep you
updatedon any other nuggets that may come from these text
