President Trump and his allies lodged an accusation against former FBI agent Peter Strzok. The accusation referred to text messages in which Strzok and Lisa Page discussed a “Media Leak Strategy" and the Department of Justice. The accusations were unfounded and premature. Trump and his allies insinuated that Strzok and Page orchestrated a "leak" as part of their established anti-Trump agenda. However strong evidence would lead one to believe both Strzok and Page were discussing how to combat leaks, not foster them.
