Vice President Mike Pence said Friday that allegations that FBI officials tried to infiltrate the Trump Administration should be investigated, Axios reports.
Republican Sens. Chuck Grassley, the chair of the Senate Finance Committee, and Ron Johnson, chair of the Senate Committee on Homeland Security, sent a letter to Attorney General William Barr on Thursday quoting text messages between two former FBI officials, former Special Agent Peter Strzok and former FBI Attorney Lisa Page, to help him took into the "genesis and conduct of intelligence activities directed at the Trump campaign during 2016."
“I was deeply offended to learn that two disgraced FBI agents considered infiltrating our transition team by sending a counter intelligence agent to one of my very first intelligence briefings only 9 days after the election," Pence told Axios in a statement. "This is an outrage and only underscores why we need to get to the bottom of how this investigation started in the first place."
