A Wall Street Journal story, which relies on anonymous sources, claims that the text was not about the Clinton email investigation, but instead about alleged Russian campaign meddling; shortly following its late-Wednesday publish, the report was widely used by liberal pundits to dismiss the potential implications of the text exchange, Levin noted.

If Obama really wanted to know everything about the FBI’s Russia investigation at that point, Levin explained, "everything" would have certainly included the infamous FISA application that led to surveillance of the Trump team in the first place.
“Are we to believe that information was kept from the White House?” Levin asked. “Of course not.”
