Trump pressed Sessions & FBI Director Wray in Jan 2108 to fire the 2 FBI officials who sent anti-Trump texts [Strzok & Page] and to dig into the FBI files for more dirt on Strzok & Page to turn over to House GOP working to smear them.
HT @emzorbit #Maddow
Trump's efforts to smear Strzok & Page began last summer when his then-criminal atty Dowd concluded that Page was a dangerous witness in Mueller's obstruction probe bc she was likely present when Comey discussed his troublesome contacts w/ Trump.
Trump's then-criminal atty Dowd realized that Lisa Page, as deputy FBI director McCabe's chief counsel, was likely privy to info McCabe had re Comey's troublesome contacts with Trump, including the time Trump told Comey to drop the Flynn probe.
ICYMI: Immediately following Comey's testimony re his firing last JUN, Trump also ordered a smear campaign targeting 3 FBI officials who could corroborate Comey's account that Trump told him to drop the Flynn probe: McCabe, Baker & Rybicki.

"Trump approved a plan [in Jun] to carry out a smear campaign to discredit senior FBI officials after Dowd warned him they all would almost certainly provide damaging testimony in Mueller's obstruction probe. One of the officials specifically targeted was Lisa Page."
THIS part: "Trump also pressed AG Sessions & FBI director Wray to work more aggressively to uncover derogatory info within the FBI’s files to turn over to congressional Republicans working to discredit the 2 FBI officials [Strzok & Page]."
