Peter Strzok's 'insurance policy' text message looks bad. But it doesn't look like a smoking gun.
Peter Strzok’s text messages say a lot about the FBI’s culture and Bob Mueller’s staffing choices. They say nothing about a grand plot by the Deep State. They say nothing about a grand plot by the Deep State.
"I want to believe the path you threw out for consideration in Andy's office - that there's no way he [Trump] gets elected – but I'm afraid we can't take that risk," writes FBI counterintelligence officer Peter Strzok to FBI lawyer Lisa Page, with whom he was having an extramarital affair while spearheading both the Clinton email inquiry and the early Trump-Russia probe, adding, "It's like a life insurance policy in the unlikely event you die before you're 40" (March 4, 2016).
FBI investigator Peter Strzok’s text referring to “an insurance policy” against President Trump was reportedly arguing that the agency should probe allegations of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.
Strzok is saying there needs to be some kind of "insurance policy." Does that mean simply, "we can't be complacent! We must have more bumper stickers!"? Maybe. It is a strange - not merely inelegant - analogy for indicating reasonable worry. Possessing reasonable worry about your house flooding isn't the same as getting an insurance policy for it.
The Wall Street Journal reports that Peter Strzok’s text about an “insurance policy” was intended to push for an aggressive investigation into possible Trump campaign collusion with Russia.

Peter Strzok is a veteran counterintelligence agent who was assigned to both the investigation into Clinton’s personal email server and Muller's probe into possible collusion between Trump officials and Russians during the election.
Perhaps the texts will even shed light on the August, 2016 comment from Strzok to Page about an "insurance policy" - which has been widely interpreted to mean that the FBI had a contingency plan in place to smear Trump using the Russia investigation in case he won.
On Thursday, Sen. Grassley sent a letter to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein demanding more information about the texts between Strzok and Page, including the one that referenced the “insurance policy.” He is also seeking more information concerning communication the two senior FBI employees had in McCabe’s office.
