Text messages released last week between FBI Special Agent Peter Strzok and his paramour, former FBI Attorney Lisa Page revive significant legal issues — possibly felonies — regarding top secret leaks to the media in the bureau’s investigation into the Trump campaign’s unproven ties to Russia.

The text messages, coupled with numerous stories that have leaked over the past several years by anonymous “law enforcement and U.S. officials,” reveal an ongoing pattern of communication between FBI and DOJ officials and the media. This pattern–according to lawmakers–must be investigated by the Department of Justice.

With about six grueling weeks left until November's midterm elections, Democrats face a rough, but still obtainable, fight to win back Senate.

Fox News’ Maria Bartiroma took the time Sunday morning to explore these issues with House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif., who patiently exposed how leaks by law enforcement and intelligence agencies to the media result in fake news stories that bolster the case for investigations and indictments of innocent people and prosecutions in which no crimes were actually perpetrated.
