The FBI was at the heart of a conspiracy against Donald Trump.
Agents discussed the Russia investigation as “an insurance policy” against Trump winning the election.
But things took a turn for the worse when the Bureau was caught red-handed covering up one horrible secret about the scandal.
Senator Ron Johnson revealed that the FBI failed to preserve five months worth of text messages between agents Peter Strzok and Lisa Page.
The two exchanged messages while having an affair that revealed their hatred for Trump as well as the fact that the Russia investigation was being used as “an insurance policy” against Trump’s election.
The missing texts were from December 2016 to May 17, 2017.
May 17th is an important date because that was the day Robert Mueller was appointed as special counsel.
The Daily Caller reports:
The FBI “failed to preserve” five months worth of text messages exchanged between Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, the two FBI employees who made pro-Clinton and anti-Trump comments while working on the Clinton email and the Russia collusion investigations.
The disclosure was made Friday in a letter sent by the Justice Department to the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee (HSGAC).
“The Department wants to bring to your attention that the FBI’s technical system for retaining text messages sent and received on FBI mobile devices failed to preserve text messages for Mr. Strzok and Ms. Page,” Stephen Boyd, the assistant attorney general for legislative affairs at the Justice Department, wrote to Wisconsin Sen. Ron Johnson, the chairman of HSGAC.
He said that texts are missing for the period between Dec. 14, 2016 and May 17, 2017.
Boyd attributed the failure to “misconfiguration issues related to rollouts, provisioning, and software upgrades that conflicted with the FBI’s collection capabilities.”
“The result was that data that should have been automatically collected and retained for long-term storage and retrieval was not collected,” Boyd wrote.”
The December to May time period covered many key events in the Russia investigation.
In these months Michael Flynn was fired as National Security Advisor, he was interviewed by the FBI – and Strzok oversaw that interview – former Director Comey testified before Congress and announced the existence of the Russia investigation, and Robert Mueller was appointed special counsel.
Critics see the missing text messages as a deliberate attempt to hide the truth about the FBI’s conduct in the Russia investigation.
Strzok was not just a random FBI agent.
He was in charge of the counterintelligence division and signed off on the Russia probe.
The critics of the Mueller probe contend that the contents of these text messages must be explosive and that they would completely undercut the credibility of the investigation.
