Trump Blasts Strzok, Page Over Latest Texts: 'Need to Be Brought to Justice'
President speaks out on new report of FBI and DoJ leaking by disgraced officials
Following the newly revealed text messages between disgraced former FBI officials Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, President Trump has blasted the pair as an "embarrassment" that "need to be brought to justice."
The bombshell text message revealed exposed a plot by the former in-house lovers to leak damaging anti-Trump stories to the media whilst ex-FBI agent Strzok was leading the investigation into the President for alleged Russian collusion.
Mr. Trump described the text messages between the two as "a disaster and embarrassment."
Freedom Caucus founder Mark Meadows (R-NC) has now told Sean Hannity that he knows the names of the reporters that Strzok and Page leaked information to.
According to the previously released messages, the pair was conspiring with the liberal mainstream media in a campaign to, in their words, "stop Trump."
His comments came in a pair of tweets Thursday morning.
They follow a Fox News’ report that said text messages between Strzok and Page reveal others were "leaking like mad" in the run-up to the Trump-Russia collusion probe.
A December 15, 2016 exchange between the two appears to reveal a possible leak operation for "political" purposes, according to the news network.
More text messages between former FBI employees Peter Strzok and Lisa Page are a disaster and embarrassment to the FBI & DOJ. This should never have happened but we are learning more and more by the hour. “Others were leaking like mad” in order to get the President! ........— Donald J.

Trump made his feelings known about the report on Twitter.
"More text messages between former FBI employees Peter Strzok and Lisa Page are a disaster and embarrassment to the FBI & DOJ," he wrote.

Trump quoted Fox News’ Gregg Jarrett in the second tweet.
Jarrett had made his comments Wednesday night during an interview with Fox News’ Sean Hannity.
