Russia Gate was Hillary and Obama's Insurance Plan if Trump won the Election

One of the biggest revelations was that Page, who was having an affair with then-FBI agent Peter Strzok, said that the infamous "insurance policy" text message was referring to the Russia investigation.
"During her interview with the Judiciary Committee in July 2018, Page was questioned at length about that text — and essentially confirmed this referred to the Russia investigation while explaining that officials were proceeding with caution, concerned about the implications of the case while not wanting to go at 'total breakneck speed' and risk burning sources as they presumed Trump wouldn't be elected anyway," Fox News reported. "Further, she confirmed investigators only had a 'paucity' of evidence at the start."
In an August 15, 2016 text message, Strzok texted Page: "I want to believe the path you threw out for consideration in [deputy FBI director Andrew McCabe’s] office that there's no way he gets elected -- but I'm afraid we can't take that risk. It's like an insurance policy in the unlikely event you die before you're 40…"
The Daily Wire's Ben Shapiro wrote the following about the text message when it was released in December 2017:
This looks an awful lot like motivation for launching an investigation into Trump in order to sink Trump as a hedge against Trump’s victory. The FBI’s investigation into Russian governmental interference in the election began in July 2016, just weeks before Strzok’s text message. And that means that there is now more of a smoking gun of FBI corruption against Trump than there is of Trump colluding with Russia.
"When you say advice you got from the Department, you’re making it sound like it was the Department that told you: 'You’re not going to charge gross negligence because we’re the prosecutors and we’re telling you we’re not going to," Rep. John Ratcliffe (R-TX) said to Page.
"That's correct," Page responded.
Ratcliffe tweeted out an excerpt of Page's testimony, writing: "Lisa Page confirmed to me under oath that the FBI was ordered by the Obama DOJ not to consider charging Hillary Clinton for gross negligence in the handling of classified information."
This is very interesting if it's true and if it is what then? We know that Strzok changed the wording of Comey's report from gross negligence to something innocuous that would allow her to skate. Hmmm..did Nancy make a deal with Trump over this? We won't impeach you and you don't investigate this.
The fact that Obama's administration and Hillary and the FBI and CIA had planned to stick Trump with being in Russia's pockets should be a huge scandal and being covered by the main stream media. That it's not speaks for itself. Here we have an outgoing administration not only planning on interfering with the incoming president, but then following through with it should have even the non Trumpers upset.
What happened during the election by Obama and crew was that they spied on and tried to entrap people from Trump's campaign to hobble his presidency. If this gets ignored then that will say a lot about democracy and the rule of law in this country.
Trump knows about this, but im doubting that he is going to do anything since he still hasn't released the original FISA warrant that would show that the Mueller investigation is a bigger farce than what we think it is. Congress has also spent two years investigating something that didn't happen.
I am beyond thoroughly disgusted by this news.
