Lots of people have long forgotten about the whole Peter Strzok–Lisa Page affair, but plenty of conservatives just can’t let go of it. That’s where the play “FBI Lovebirds: Undercovers” comes in.
The new “verbatim theater” production in D.C. focuses on the texts between the former senior FBI agents (Strzok was on Robert Mueller’s team) having an extramarital affair in 2016, who flirted, gossiped, joked — and discussed their hatred of Donald Trump — on government-issued cell phones. They shared their hatred of Trump, mocked his supporters, texted during presidential debates, and expressed horror that Trump was winning. And though the DOJ’s inspector general found they’d had no impact on the investigations into the president, they still fuel conspiracy theories that he was spied on by law enforcement officials out to get him.
