"POTUS" has become a widely used acronym for president of the United States. I do not talk to FBI Directors about pending investigations.

"Later that same month, Peter Strzok - the same guy who ran the Clinton investigation - opens the Russia-Trump investigation", Jordan continued.
By Sept. 2, Trump and Clinton were locked in a bitter contest for the White House that ended with Trump's victory November 8 to succeed Obama.
On Wednesday, the congressman accused the agency of rushing to close the Hillary Clinton email probe in order to quickly launch an investigation into allegations the Trump campaign colluded with Russian Federation. Davis, whose book "The Unmaking of the President 2016: How FBI Director James Comey Cost Hillary Clinton the Presidency" was released Tuesday, joined CBSN's "Red & Blue" Wednesday to talk about the special counsel investigation. "Because Director Comey's July 7 statement was given under oath, this discrepancy requires further investigation". We have a strict line, and always have maintained it, previous president.
"In connection with an unrelated case, the FBI has learned of the existence of emails that appear to be pertinent to the investigation". Page called Trump a 'loathsome human, ' before writing 'I cannot [sic] believe Donald Trump is likely to be an actual, serious candidate for president.' Strzok called Trump 'an idiot' and opined Clinton 'should win 100,000,000 - 0.' Strzok and Page also used expletives to describe Trump.
Last week, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif., successfully pushed for the release of a memo alleging the department misled a court to be able to surveil a former Trump campaign adviser, and this week, the Senate Judiciary Committee added more detail to those claims.
"It goes past bias... it's animus", commented Jordan.
The president and many Republicans are now trying to sell the American public a story in where the Federal Bureau of Investigation (which is led by another person chosen by Trump-Christopher Wray), and the Department of Justice have been and were collaborating against him and his presidential campaign all along.More news: Keown: Aubameyang can't believe what's happened to him at Arsenal
Despite the ambiguity over the meaning of the text, some Republicans and right-leaning media outlets concluded it implicated Obama in a larger conspiracy to prevent Trump from becoming president.
Americans rightly expect a single and impartial system of justice for all, not one for the well connected and a separate one for everyone else.
The Washington Times picked up the story, running with the headline: "Newly released texts raise questions about Obama's role in Clinton probe".
On September 2, 2016, Page texted Strzok that Obama "wants to know everything we're doing".
In texts previously revealed, Strzok and Page have shown their disdain for Republicans in general, and other texts show more examples of the officials' opposition to Trump, calling him a "f-ing idiot", among other insults. Later that month, on November 13, 2016, Page wrote, "I bought all the president's men".
White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders addressed the "potus wants to know everything" text Wednesday during the daily press briefing.
"So taken in context, I think it raises lots of concerns, lots of suspicion". And we, again, hope that they look at them thoroughly and investigate this process more fully. "He was later a member of special counsel Robert Mueller's team investigating alleged links between Donald Trump's presidential campaign and Russian Federation".
"Facts and dates matter", Burnett said, noting that the September 2 date of the text highlighted by Johnson falls squarely between the July 5 initial closure of the FBI's Clinton email investigation and the September 28 re-opening of the case.
