"I am writing to inform you that the investigative team briefed me on this yesterday..."
According to Fox News, the newly revealed Strzok-Page texts also have the FBI officials bashing the "ignorant [hillbillies]" who voted against then-FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe's wife in her 2015 bid for a Virginia Senate seat.
Whether they had gotten into a fight or if she realized their text messages had been discovered is unclear.
In previously released text messages, Strzok and Page referred to Trump as an "idiot" and a "loathsome human". Also included in a batch of newly released documents are email exchanges between top FBI officials drafting the statement that former FBI Director James Comey gave when he exonerated Clinton in the probe. In August 2016, for example, Strzok texted, "I'm anxious about what happens if HRC is elected".

But Sanders said Trump stood by his criticism of McCabe and the White House had "some concerns" over McCabe's work at the bureau. The White House was not involved in McCabe's decision, press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told reporters Monday afternoon.
In previous congressional testimony, l referred to the fact that the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) had completed its investigation of former Secretary Clinton's personal email server.
Republicans and President Donald Trump himself have cited the messages as evidence the Russian probe amounts to a wider plot to undermine him. "Presumably, because this message was not redacted, the Department believes it may relate to the FBI's investigation of classified information on Secretary Clinton's private server", the report says.
For example, on election night of November 8, 2016, Strzok describes the results as "f***ing terrifying" and Page responds with "Omg, I am so depressed".
And the timeline of the texts, as laid out by Republicans on the Senate Homeland Security Committee, does not comport with what was happening when the messages were sent in 2016 and ignores that the texts were sent days before Obama confronted Russian President Vladimir Putin over the country's meddling in the 2016 election.

Air Force will launch Space Test Program 2 (STP-2), a collection of experimental satellites, on SpaceX's new rocket as well. Musk's Saturday tweet is clear enough about February 6 being the "aim", but any number of factors could delay that plan.
A lawyer for Strzok declined to comment, and a lawyer for Page could not be reached. "Now I need to fix it and finish it".
"For me, and this case, I personally have a sense of unfinished business", Strzok wrote.
On November 14, Page references a meeting that makes her angry, because there is "lots of high fallutin' [sic] national security talk. Meanwhile, we have OUR task ahead of us". The text messages were provided by the Justice Department to Congress, and are part of an inspector general investigation into the handling of the Hillary Clinton email inquiry. The FBI closed the investigation in July 2016, and concluded that while Clinton was "extremely careless", it would not recommend filing any charges.
The message in question also came three days before Mr Obama confronted Russian President Vladimir Putin about alleged meddling in the USA election - suggesting Mr Obama was interested in the FBI's investigation of that issue, instead.
