Nunes: Declassifying the 20 Redacted Pages Will Reveal Peter Strzok's 'Insurance Policy'
Out of all the damning, politically charged anti-Trump text messages between FBI lovebirds Peter Strzok and Lisa Page that have come to light, one text regarding a strategy session that had taken place in Andy McCabe's office has really stood out: "I want to believe the path you threw out for consideration in Andy’s office—that there’s no way he gets elected—but I’m afraid we can’t take that risk. It’s like an insurance policy in the unlikely event you die before you’re 40," Strzok texted Page in August 2016.
What "insurance policy"? Whatever did he mean?
According to House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes, we will soon find out.
President Trump on Monday ordered the declassification of the Carter Page FISA application and the public release of "all text messages relating to the Russia investigation, without redaction, of James Comey, Andrew McCabe, Peter Strzok, Lisa Page, and Bruce Ohr."
Rep. Nunes appeared on Fox News' "Ingraham Angle" Monday night to discuss what's coming.
"It'll be the 20 pages of the last FISA that was approved on Carter Page, which will have basically everything that was in it from number one, two, three, and four of what we think the American people need to understand that this is actually the insurance policy that was talked about in the Strzok/Page texts," Nunes explained. [Emphasis added]
"A lot of people think that the insurance policy was getting a FISA warrant on Carter Page. We actually believe it was more explicit than that," he continued. "We believe it was actually that the insurance policy was specifically what they did that still is redacted that the president has said that he's going to declassify."
Nunes has been saying for months now that when the American people see this information, they will be shocked.
In addition to the FISA-related material, "about a dozen Bruce Ohr 302s" will also be declassified, Nunes went on to say.
"Those are significant not just because of the Carter Page FISA but also because it shows the interaction between Christopher Steele, Fusion GPS, and many other rotten apples within the FBI that were up to no good," he said. "Finally, there's exculpatory information that the president has ordered declassified," he explained.
He also pointed out that President Trump ordered text messages between the top leaders at the FBI from the time the agency was spying on the Trump campaign to be declassified.
"This is going to be a great day for the American people," Nunes declared.
