The Russia collusion story just took another turn further down the rabbit hole. A newly revealed text from one of the anti-Trump FBI officials on the special counsel implicates the Obama White House. This does not look good.

Grassley rips Strzok-Page redactions amid mystery text: Obama ‘White House is running this’
A top Senate Republican is challenging the Justice Department over extensive redactions made in files showing text messages between anti-Trump FBI officials Peter Strzok and Lisa Page.
Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, drew particular attention to one text that suggested the Obama “White House is running this,” in reference to an unspecified investigation.
But, like in so many of the files, a name was redacted and the context was unclear, though one report suggests that was related to the Russia probe.
In a letter sent Wednesday to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, Grassley called for all redactions to be removed.
“The manner in which some redactions have been used casts doubt on whether the remaining redactions are necessary and defensible,” Grassley wrote.
He sent the letter following two sessions for committee staff to view less-redacted versions of the texts between Strzok and now-former FBI official Page. Both officials previously worked on Robert Mueller’s Russia probe and ran into trouble when their anti-Trump messages were revealed.
What are Democrats and their media allies going to do if this all leads back to Obama?
