Found in a new batch of released text messages between FBI agents is an exchange that reveals that then-President Barack Obama wanted "to know everything we're doing," Fox News is reporting.

That exchange has piqued the suspicion of Senate investigators who now want to know Obama's level of involvement with the FBI's investigation into Hillary Clinton's private email server and exposed emails, Fox reports.

The new batch of texts is being released by the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee with an accompanying report titled, "The Clinton Email Scandal and the FBI's Investigation of it," Fox News reports.

FBI agent Peter Strzok sent the text to FBI attorney Lisa Page on Sept. 2, 2016, about having to prep then-FBI Director James Comey because "POTUS wants to know everything we're doing," Fox reported.

Further, the texts between Strzok and Page also reveal the previously reported timeline of the new batch of emails that were discovered on the laptop of disgraced Congressman Anthony Weiner, whose wife, Huma Abedin, was the top adviser to Hillary, Fox News reports.

Strzok texted Page about the email dump on Sept. 28, but then FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe apparently held off moving that discovery up the chain to Comey, who wrote the letter to Congress on Oct. 28 informing them of a need to reopen the investigation.

That culminates with this exchange on election day:

Page: "Omg this is [expletive] terrifying."

Strzok: "Omg, I am so depressed."
