Over the weekend, we learned that the FBI has conveniently “lost” 5 months worth of Anti-Trump texts, and it has made Trump supporters everywhere FURIOUS.
Thankfully, we have a Justice Department that wants to get the bottom of it, and they have officially launched an investigation into this matter! The FBI claims that the loss of these text messages was a “technical error”, but we aren’t buying that explanation for one damn minute.
Here’s the scoop from the Daily Caller:
The Justice Department will investigate the FBI’s failure to produce text messages traded between two senior investigators leading the Russia probe who harbored deep antipathy for President Donald Trump.
Previous texts had shown the two investigators, Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, regularly expressed strong anti-Trump bias, prompting allegations that the probe was driven by political considerations. Several congressional committees requested a complete log of Strzok-Page communications during the period they participated in the Russia investigation. The FBI failed to comply with that order, however, claiming an internal archive system failed to retain text messages the pair traded between Dec. 14, 2016 and May 17, 2017.
“I have spoken to the inspector general and a review is already underway to ascertain what occurred and to determine if these records can be recovered in any other way,” the attorney general said in a statement. “If any wrongdoing were to be found to have caused this gap, appropriate legal disciplinary action measures will be taken.”
“We will leave no stone unturned to confirm with certainty why these text messages are not now available to be produced and will use every technology available to determine whether the missing messages are recoverable from another source,” he added. “If we are successful, we will update the congressional committees immediately.”
The missing texts drew an incredulous reaction from Republican lawmakers. GOP Rep. Mark Meadows of North Carolina, chair of the conservative House Freedom Caucus, said a second special counsel was warranted to investigate political bias at the FBI.
I want EVERYONE interviewed. I want Comey to be put in a room and be questioned for 12 hours if we have to. We must NOT let these crooks be let off the hook again.
Do you think the Department of Justice will find out what really happened? Comment below…
