Sen. Ron Johnson and Sen. Chuck Grassley have released texts shared by former FBI agent Peter Strzok, which suggest that the Obama administration began their investigation into Donald Trump’s alleged connections with Russia much earlier than what the official government documents show. 

According to Breitbart, one text dated July 28, 2016, allegedly reads, “[o]ur open C[counter-]I[ntelligence] investigations relating to Trump’s Russian connections.” DOJ’s reports claim that the FBI opened an investigation into the Trump campaign three days after being tipped off by an Australian diplomat Alexander Downer. But some of Peter Strzok’s text messages to FBI lawyer Lisa Page suggest that the investigations had already been opened by the FBI, in connection to Trump’s link to Russia. The texts also reveal that journalist Carl Bernstein received the “Russian dossier” from late Sen John McCain. 

On December 17, the President took to Twitter to share the Breitbart story, calling out McCain, following the latest revelations. He tweeted, “New Peter Strzok Texts Undermine Official Narrative on Start of ‘Russia Collusion‘ Investigation https://breitbart.com/politics/2020/… via @BreitbartNews. Check out last in his class John McCain, one of the most overrated people in D.C."



 

 

Trump's tweet, however, didn't sit well with many Twitter users, who consider the senator to be an "American hero". One tweeted, "Trump is a traitor to this country! He's given up being POTUS because he lost the election and he knows it. He's terrified of Attorney General of Ny because he's going to be indicted. So he attacks The late Senator John McCain AGAIN because he's scared and going to prison." Another added, "Ahhh....poor Donny. Your insecurities are showing again. Did someone remind you that John McCain was far and away more of a courageous man, and devoted patriot than you can ever hope to be?" Adding to the previous tweets another added, "@realDonaldTrump Donald, leave John McCain alone,he is deceased. You are so vindictive even towards deceased people. You need help. Enjoy your retirement and please don’t come back to our White House. President Joe Biden and Dr. Jill Biden will run things.OK?" One tweeted, "John McCain was a hero in life, and died with dignity! Who is the BIGGEST LOOSER we've ever seen? DJT :) Your problems don't start with lies, cowardice or disgrace, they start with you being anything but HUMAN!"
