The tables have turned on the FBI as they have now found themselves on the other side of the investigation as they have come under intense scrutiny after President Donald Trump fired his Special Counsel Robert Mueller. Two top officials in the agency serving on Mueller’s team became involved in a romantic relationship and as such shared damning text messages with each other about the president during an especially critical five-month time period.
With the investigation, they tried to hide what they said and thought they had successfully done so by deleting the texts in question. Unfortunately for them, just because they were erased, it doesn’t mean they’re gone forever, and now the messages between the Trump-hating FBI officials, Peter Strzok and Lisa Page.
Fox News broke the shocking update moments ago:
Text messages from a critical five-month period between Trump-bashing FBI officials Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, who both served on Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s team, have been located, Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz has told Sen. Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, and Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis.
This comes after the Department of Justice launched an investigation into Strzok and page who had a total of 384 pages of text messages between the two lovers that contained damning remarks and plans against the president.
According to the Washington Examiner:
The Justice Department has begun to retrieve some of the texts exchanged between FBI officials Peter Strzok and Lisa Page that were said to be unpreserved, according to a new report.
Earlier this month, the Justice Department produced 384 pages of text messages that were sent between the two, but the FBI said that text messages sent between Dec. 14, 2016, and May 17, 2017, were lost due to “misconfiguration issues.”
Trump was breaking ground on immigration, then it all went to “shit”
But sources within the Department of Justice told Fox News that some of the texts exchanged from that five-month period are starting to be recovered.
Strzok was a top FBI counterintelligence agent who was part of special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia inquiry team prior to being demoted after it was revealed that he and Page exchanged text messages that were critical of Trump. He was then moved to a human resources position. Page also was previously a member of the special counsel team.
Strzok was also a lead investigator in the investigation into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s unauthorized private email server.
The five-month period the Department of Justice previously had not been preserved includes the presidential transition period up to when Mueller was chosen to be special counsel.
The Gateway Pundit explains why this it’s so important to expose what these two lovers said. They very well could hold all the answers to the Mueller investigation:
Social media was set ablaze after these new Strzok-Page text messages were released to the public. What is even scarier to think about is the new explosive text messages are a separate batch from the 6 months worth of ‘missing’ text messages.
The timeline of the ‘missing’ text messages is highly suspicious. They begin on December 14, 2016 and go through May 17, 2017 which is the same day Robert Mueller was appointed as Special Counsel.
Imagine what the ‘missing’ text messages say about the Trump transition period, Russia dossier, “secret society” and moments leading up to Mueller’s appointment.
The most shocking thing we have found out in the new batch of text messages is there was a “secret society” of folks within the DOJ and FBI working against Trump.
The fact is that these messages were never really “missing” as has been said, it’s clear that this was a coverup.
USA Today reports:
While weighing the prospect of joining special counsel Robert Mueller’s team last year, a top FBI counter-intelligence official described the investigation into Russia’s interference in the 2016 election as a case destined for “the history books. ”
Peter Strzok, subsequently removed from Mueller’s staff last summer for disparaging President Trump in text messages, referred to the inquiry as “maybe the most important case of our lives,” according to a new release of his communications with FBI lawyer Lisa Page.
The latest batch of texts, released Tuesday by Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee Chairman Ron Johnson of Wisconsin, suggest Strzok expressed some skepticism about the inquiry just two days after Mueller’s appointment as special counsel.
“I hesitate in part because of my gut sense and concern (that) there’s no big there there,” Strzok said in the May 19 message, before he joined Mueller’s staff.
The release of two pages of text messages exchanged between the two officials comes a day after Attorney General Jeff Sessions acknowledged that the FBI’s information system failed to preserve five months of text messages between the two officials, both of whom had worked on Mueller’s staff.
Strzok, who also helped run the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server, was removed after the Justice Department’s inspector general first discovered texts in which Strzok and Page were harshly critical of Trump—in one message referring to him as an “idiot.”
Trump is doing as he promised and is draining the swamp! Everyone will be held accountable in due time.
