President Trump is very excited about text messages released between two FBI employees that show former President Obama wanted to know everything were doing.
NEW FBI TEXTS ARE BOMBSHELLS! the President tweeted shortly after 11 a.m. on Wednesday.
According to the daily schedule released by the White House, the Presidents intelligence briefing started at 11 a.m.
But his tweet came just moments after a Fox news segment about the text exchange between counterintelligence agent Peter Strzok and FBI lawyer Lisa Page.

The texts were released as part of a report issued on Tuesday by Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) and Republican staff on the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee.
The report indicates that the messages raise questions about Obamas involvement in the Clinton investigation.
Although sometimes cryptic and disjointed due to their nature, these text messages raise several questions about the FBI and its investigation of classified information on Secretary Clintons private email server, the report says.
But Johnsons report does not make clear that the Clinton case was closed at the time.
Long-term budget deal gaining momentum in Senate
Nor does it establish that the text regarding Obama was sent on Sept. 2, 2016, just three days prior to the then-commander-in-chief calling out Russian President Vladimir Putin over election tampering issues.
Other texts reveal that the pair, who were having an affair at the time, had high praise for former FBI Director James Comey.
As Comey defended to Congress the bureaus decision in the Clinton email probe, the two traded admiring texts about his verbal dexterity and mocking jibes at the lawmakers questioning him.
Congress, wrote Page in one text, is utterly worthless.
The dangerous folly of Trump’s military parade
Less than worthless, replied Strzok, a seasoned FBI counterintelligence agent assigned to that investigation. Utterly contemptible.
The pair had different feelings about Comey.
God he is SO good, Strzok said.
I know, Page responded. Brilliant public speaker. And brilliant distillation of fact.
The pair also riffed on the Republican National Convention, the texts reveal. Both took jabs at current Housing and Urban Development secretary Ben Carson, actor Scott Baio and other speakers.
They also slam former Attorney General Eric Holder and Sen. Bernie Sanders supporters.
Strzok also calls Virginians who voted against then-FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe’s wife for a state Senate seat ignorant hillbillys (sic).
Republicans for months have pointed to the text messages as evidence of bias among federal law enforcement officials.
It came days after a House memo accusing the FBI and the Justice Department of misusing surveillance tactics to keep an eye on a former Trump campaign adviser.
In previously released texts, Page and Strzok voiced their dislike of other politicians, including the President while he was running for office.
The discovery of the pairs exchanges led to Strzoks reassignment from special counsel Robert Muellers probe into Russias meddling in the election.
