A guest on Fox News' “Outnumbered” floated the idea that the FBI employees who exchanged anti-Trump text messages were actually planning to assassinate President Trump.
Guest co-host and syndicated conservative talk radio host Kevin Jackson questioned the intent behind the text messages between FBI agent Peter Strzok and his alleged mistress, FBI lawyer Lisa Page, referring to an “insurance policy” against Trump.
“I think they will say, what was his intent, right?” Jackson proposed to the panel. “That is exactly what former FBI Director James Comey said when he was letting Hillary Clinton off the hook. And his intent whether it was an assassination attempt or whether, it was definitely something.”
“I am saying, there is a spectrum of what does it mean, but one thing we know for sure, he was plotting in an election against a candidate, and there is FBI fingerprints all over this,” he added.
Jackson’s comments were met with pushback from the rest of the Fox News panel.
"Because I know how things get clipped on social media, I just want to press in on the fact that no one has floated any sort of an idea that it was —" co-host Harris Faulkner, began to say until cut off by Jackson.
Jackson further clarified that the threats he saw were on social media and not from any serious sources.
The Department of Justice recently provided Congress with hundreds of text messages between Strzok and Page. Strzok was removed from special counsel Robert Mueller's Russia inquiry over the summer after the text messages were discovered.
