Congress, FBI lawyer Lisa Page wrote in one text message, is "utterly worthless"."Less than worthless," responded Peter Strzok, a seasoned FBI counterintelligence agent assigned to the investigation.That exchange is included among 384 pages of text messages between Page and Strzok provided by the Justice Department to Congress and reviewed by the Associated Press.The texts proved an explosive development when revealed in December, giving rise to Republican allegations of bias in the FBI and the Justice Department and leading Trump to make an extraordinary allegation of "treason" against Strzok that the agent's lawyer dismissed as "beyond reckless". Strzok was removed from Mueller's group in July after Mueller learned of the texts. Weeks before that, Strzok confided to Page that Justice Department lawyers were concerned by the late discovery of classified marking notations along some paragraphs in State Department emails.It remains unclear why the FBI waited a month before revealing the discovery of new emails and before obtaining a warrant to scour them.
