Reports from The Daily Wire assert that recovered FBI texts between agents Strzok and Page reveal favoritism towards Hillary Clinton, who was then under investigation.
The Recovered Text Messages and Bias In Clinton’s Favor
In the eyes of many Americans, the content of the aforementioned texts is almost equally as shocking as the alleged “glitch” which caused them to temporarily go “missing.” For quite some time, conservatives have stated that the fix for Clinton was always in, regarding investigations.

Controversy Surrounding Investigations Into Hillary Clinton
The content of the aforementioned text messages is a contributing factor in the overall distrust that many Republicans have in government, hence their belief in the existence of the deep state.

During the 2016 Presidential election, pay-to-play politics were widely discussed and debated. In fact, many Americans opined that habitual pay-to-play politics contributed to Clinton’s (failed) 2016 Presidential campaign:
