Text messages sent between FBI agent Peter Strzok and FBI lawyer Lisa Page reveal that then-President Barack Obama wanted to know everything they were working on.
In the exchange, Strzok and Page discuss preparing talking points for then-FBI Director James Comey who was briefing Obama.
The messages were among thousands of text messages first obtained by the Department of Justice (DOJ) Inspector General, and are now in the hands of Congress.
Strzok was the lead FBI agent on both the agency's investigation into Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server and alleged collusion between Donald Trump and Russia.
He later became part of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's team but was fired last year after the text messages had emerged.
The messages show Strzok and Page have a clear bias in favor of Clinton and a general disdain for Trump and his supporters.
While it is not strange for a sitting president to be made aware of such high profile investigations, it raises concerns that Obama might have been personally involved in them and implicated in any inappropriate or illegal activity that was part of those investigations.
The FBI investigation into whether Clinton had sent classified information using a private email server became perhaps the biggest stumbling block of her presidential run. The still unproven narrative that Trump colluded with Russia to win the elections, became one of the main attack lines against Trump.
"That concerned me because that language tracked the way the campaign was talking about FBI’s work and that’s concerning," Comey said.
It was also revealed that Comey drafted the exoneration statement of Clinton well before the FBI investigation was concluded and before key witnesses, including Clinton herself, had been interviewed.
Strzok was among the agents who made changes to the draft of the exoneration statement Comey delivered in July 2016.
In 2015, Obama was forced to retract a statement that he had not known about Clinton's use of a private email server until it had come out publicly.
