When the FBI announced they had lost five months worth of text messages sent by two high ranking anti-Trump FBI officials, Americans smelled a cover up.
Those suspicions only grew when it was revealed that the missing texts covered a crucial time period stretching from December 2016 to the day Robert Mueller was appointed special counsel.
But that all changed when Jeff Sessions and the Department of Justice found the smoking gun in the FBI’s anti-Trump conspiracy.
The Department of Justice’s Inspector General announced he had been able to recover the missing text messages.
This came after Congress exercised their oversight powers.
Fox News reports:
“The Department of Justice has recovered missing text messages between anti-Trump FBI officials Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, the DOJ’s inspector general said Thursday.
In a letter sent to congressional committees, Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz said his office “succeeded in using forensic tools to recover text messages from FBI devices, including text messages between Mr. Strzok and Ms. Page that were sent or received between December 14, 2016 and May 17, 2017.”
“Our effort to recover any additional text messages is ongoing,” Horowitz said. “We will provide copies of the text messages that we recover from these devices to the Department so that the Department’s leadership can take any management action it deems appropriate.”
Fox News has learned from U.S. government officials that the inspector general recovered the texts by taking possession of “at least four” phones belonging to Strzok and Page.”
FBI officials tried to lean on a “technical glitch” and claim the texts were lost to history.
But this has been a standard crutch for federal agencies caught up in scandal, especially during the Obama era.
It was the same excuse the IRS used for Lois Lerner’s missing hard drives, and the reason Hillary claimed her emails were gone forever.
But it was fake news.
The texts have been recovered and now the American people will see the truth about the anti-Trump bias that corrupted the FBI.
In fact, some of the recovered texts already reveal that the FBI rigged the Clinton investigation.
The Daily Wire reports that Lisa Page wrote to Peter Strzok and said they should take it easy on Clinton because she would be their future boss:
“Page wrote to Strzok on February 25, 2016, “One more thing: she might be our next president. The last thing you need us going in there loaded for bear. You think she’s going to remember or care that it was more doj than fbi?” The obvious implication here is that Page wanted to go easy on Clinton in order to curry favor. Strzok wrote back, “Agreed. I called [FBI counterintelligence head] Bill [Priestap] and relayed what we discussed. He agrees. I will email you and [redacted] same.”
Other messages showed that Strzok knew the Russian collusion investigation was bogus but took the assignment anyway because it could lead to Trump’s impeachment.
