The Hill’s John Solomon stopped by ‘Hannity’ Wednesday night to weigh-in on new revelations regarding the origins of the Russia-Trump investigation; saying one anti-Trump text message between DOJ officials has “always stuck” in his mind.
“One text message has always stood out in my mind. That is a message from Peter Strzok to Lisa Page after they’ve launched the Trump investigation. The text says: ‘The White House is running this,’” said Solomon.
“That text remained in my head for a long time… Next week we will be talking about some very interesting evidence,” he added.

OBSTRUCTION OBSESSION: Debunking the Media's 'Myth’ That Interview Caught Trump ‘In Obstruction’
The Hill’s John Solomon thoroughly debunked the media’s newest anti-Trump ‘obstruction’ obsession this week; saying Lester Holt’s interviews with the President and James Comey show the media “can weave” one narrative for public opinion that would never “fly in the court of law.”
“For most of the past two years, many of my colleagues in the news media have pointed to a single statement in President Trump’s now infamous May 2017 interview with NBC News’s Lester Holt as the best evidence that the president intended to obstruct the Russia probe when he fired then-FBI Director James Comey,” writes Solomon.
“That soundbite was revived by TV networks after Barr announced his decision not to pursue obstruction charges two weeks ago,” he added. “In retrospect, Holt’s interviews of Trump and Comey — two years apart — provide a powerful example of how the media can weave one narrative in the court of public opinion that would never fly in a court of law.”

REPORT: DOJ Officials Likely Withheld ‘Proof of Innocence’ in Early Days of Russia Probe
A new report from The Hill’s John Solomon could spell big trouble for Democratic sources and DOJ officials during the launch of the Russia-Trump collusion probe; revealing multiple individuals likely withheld “proof of innocence” information from investigators.
“If President Trump declassifies evidence in the Russia investigation, Carter Page’s summer bike ride to a Virginia farm and George Papadopoulos’s hasty academic jaunt to London may emerge as linchpin proof of FBI surveillance abuses during the 2016 election,” writes The Hill’s John Solomon.
“The two trips have received scant attention. But growing evidence suggests both Trump campaign advisers made exculpatory statements — at the very start of the FBI’s investigation — that undercut the Trump-Russia collusion theory peddled to agents by Democratic sources,” he adds.
