Peter Strzok and Lisa PageMore text messages between two FBI officials "strongly" suggest coordination among several federal agencies, the Obama White House, and a Democratic senator in the early stages of the investigation into alleged "collusion" between the Trump campaign and Russia.

That's the gist of a report published on Wednesday night based on information provided by congressional investigators to Fox News. Those investigators, according to Fox News, say:

"... the information provided ... 'strongly' suggests coordination between former President Barack Obama's Chief of Staff Denis McDonough, then-Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid, and CIA Director John Brennan – which they say would 'contradict' the Obama administration's public stance about its hand in the process."

The newly uncovered text messages between FBI officials Peter Strzok and Lisa Page occurred in August 2016. Those messages suggest, according to the report, that the FBI/DOJ knew Senator Reid was going to write a letter to former FBI director James Comey that would "cover" them by resulting in "public calls" for an investigation into Russian interference in the election.

"With this entire Russia collusion debacle," says American Family Association attorney Abe Hamilton, "the specific information that's coming out now is that President Obama's chief of staff was made aware that Senator Harry Reid would send a letter requesting the Russian collusion investigation to commence, because of as a result of doing that it will provide some cover for the Obama administration."

It appears, he says, that the facts trace back to the former president's administration. 

"Now whether or not we will see legal criminal accountabilityat that level," the attorney adds, "remains to be seen."
