Donald Trump on Tuesday spent his evening, as he often does, rage-tweeting about the latest conspiracy theory against his administration.
This time, the source of the president’s indignation was text messages between FBI agents Peter Strzok and Lisa Page that Republicans have decided proves a DOJ conspiracy against Trump. Before the Strzok/Page text messages, of course, it was "unmasking," Uranium One and the Nunes memo (to name just a few things this administration and its enablers have used to distract from the Russia probe).
Where are the 50,000 important text messages between FBI lovers Lisa Page and Peter Strzok? Blaming Samsung!— Donald J. Trump (@Donald J. Trump) 1516766062.0
