Trump Accuses FBI Agent in Clinton Probe of 'Treason'

US President Donald Trump speaks to the media in the Oval Office at White House in Washington

In one of those exchanges, Strzok tells Page that there's "no way" Trump could get elected, and talks of an "insurance policy" in place if he gets elected because "we can't take that risk".

The two a year ago during the 2016 presidential campaign season exchanged thousands of text messages that revealed they supported Clinton and detested Trump and had discussed an "insurance policy" in the case of his election. "We'll go to phase two and we'll get this guy out of office", Trump told the Journal. As the texts sent by Strzok don't depict a situation where the Federal Bureau of Investigation agent contrived to aid an enemy of the state, it's hard to conclude his actions as treasonous.

Strzok had sent the critical messages to FBI lawyer Lisa Page, who was also temporarily employed in the special counsel's investigation.

The text messages critical of President Donald Trump that were traded between two FBI employees investigating the Trump campaign's connections to Russian Federation were treasonous, the president told the Wall Street Journal in an interview published Thursday.

It is not clear what the "insurance policy" might be, but it appears he could have been alluding to the Russian investigation against the president, the Hill reported. His texts have been used by Trump and supporters to make a case that the Mueller investigation hasn't been objective.

In the WSJ interview, Trump insisted there was no obstruction to justice.

He said, rather, he should get credit for firing Comey, saying "everybody wanted Comey fired".

U.S. President Donald Trump leads a roundtable in the Roosevelt Room at the White House.

Trump said his lawyers' initial instinct was to fight the special counsel, but then after reviewing requested documents, made a decision to be open.

In his interview with the Journal, Trump expressed the belief that the messages between Strzok and Page are treasonous.

He said he hoped that investigations in Congress were nearing an end, and that Republicans would be strong and take charge.

"What he said about my son is frightful", Trump said.
