    Half a sentence? Who gets their knickers in a wad over half a sentence?
    Because it means this...



    “I do not talk to the Attorney General about pending investigations. I do not talk to FBI directors about pending investigations. We have a strict line and always have maintained it. I guarantee it."

    “I guarantee that there is no political influence in any investigation conducted by the Justice Department or the FBI, not just in this case but in any cas –.period,” he added. “Nobody gets treated differently when it comes to the Justice Department because nobody is above the law.”
    ...was a big lie.

    And?

    This is three days before Obama confronted Putin about election meddling at the G20 summit. Of course he would want info from the FBI

    Exactly what are the facts and the meaning behind the text?

    But the text doesn’t say anything about any specific investigations.

    It’s not weird in any way for the President if the United States to get an Intelligence briefing from the FBI. Especially right before he goes to the G20 summit. The G20 summit in which he intends to confront Putin about election meddling

    It's evidence that President Obama wanted to be informed. You'll need more than that to claim he was trying to "influence" anything.

    Probably because this story is BS??

    The theory is being pushed by Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI), who recently advanced and then retracted a claim that there was a “secret society” in the FBI seeking to undermine Trump. Johnson released a report to accompany the emails called “THE CLINTON EMAIL SCANDAL AND THE FBI’S INVESTIGATION OF IT.” On September 2, 2016, Page wrote about preparing talking points for Director Comey because “potus wants to know everything we’re doing.” This text raises additional questions about the type and extent of President Obama’s personal involvement in the Clinton email scandal and the FBI investigation of it.

    It’s simply not a plausible interpretation of the September 2, 2016 text exchange that Obama was seeking a briefing on the Clinton email investigation. FBI Director James Comey closed the Clinton email investigation on July 5, 2016. It was not reopened until October. The same trove of text messages released Tuesday reveals that the FBI did not even become aware of additional emails on Anthony Weiner’s laptop until September 28, 2016. Fox News suggests the texts were referring to talking points regarding the Clinton email case. But those talking points, according to documents released by the Senate, were completed in June. That makes sense because they were prepared in advance of Comey’s announcement in July.

    So what was Obama interested in? Most likely, he wanted information about the counterintelligence investigation into the Trump campaign’s contacts with Russia, which was active on September 2, 2016. Obama has publicly said that he confronted Putin about election interference a few days later at the Group of 20 meeting in China, telling the Russian leader to “cut it out.”

    “[I]t has to be about the Russia probe,” former Department of Justice official Matthew Miller told ThinkProgress in reference to the September 2, 2016 texts.

    This seems pretty specific.
    On Sept. 28, 2016, Strzok wrote to Page, "Got called up to Andy's [McCabe] earlier.. hundreds of thousands of emails turned over by Weiner's atty to sdny [Southern District of New York], includes a ton of material from spouse [Huma Abedin]. Sending team up tomorrow to review... this will never end." According to the Senate report, this text message raises questions about when FBI officials learned of emails relevant to the Hillary Clinton email investigation on the laptop belonging to Weiner, the husband to Clinton aide Huma Abedin.
