FBI Agents Peter Strzok and Lisa Page have put themselves in a bad spot.
Their anti-Trump text messages that were released have put their careers in jeopardy.
And one text message sent by Strzok may even be bad enough to send him to prison.
In a newly released batch of text messages between Strzok and his mistress Lisa Page, Strzok stated that “We’re in Jim’s SCIF.”
SCIF stands for Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility and is where the most sensitive classified material is stored.
The issue with this text message is that SCIFs strictly ban all electronic equipment, and require all people place their phones in lockers before entering.
The “Jim” that Strzok is referring to is likely Jim Baker, who at the time of the text message was the general counsel to the FBI, and a close ally to then-FBI Director James Comey.
As reported by The Daily Caller:
“Released texts between Peter Strzok, the FBI agent who ran the investigation into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s email server, and his lover, FBI attorney Lisa Page, reveal the possibility that Strzok used his cell phone in a SCIF — a strict violation of protecting classified information.
Such a breach would compromise Strzok’s ability to probe Clinton for mishandling classified info and show a lack of awareness about security breaches, which is what he was tasked to investigate. The text messages that the Senate released Wednesday show that Strzok texted his mistress on Aug. 11, 2016, “We’re in Jims SCIF.”
SCIF stands for Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility, and it is where the most sensitive classified material is kept and stored. SCIFs strictly bar all electronic equipment and require all people place their phones in lockers before entering.
Strzok’s visit to “Jims SCIF” took place after he said he had a meeting at the Department of Justice “at 4 then Baker 430.”
Hours later, Page responds, “Can you and [redacted woman] come up and see me when you are done? Is [redacted woman] with you? Can you please come up here?”
“Walking to see JB. She is still in 4017,” Strzok texted in response at 4:31 p.m.
“We’re in Jims SCIF,” Strzok texted five minutes later. JB/Jim may refer to Jim Baker, then the FBI’s general counsel and a close ally of then-FBI Director Jim Comey.
James Waurishuk, a retired Air Force colonel, senior career strategic intelligence officer and former National Security Council staffer, told The Daily Caller News Foundation that cell phones are strictly prohibited in the SCIF.”
Having access to his cell phone while in such a highly secure facility is a dangerous threat to national security.
This revelation is proof of a serious offense likely committed by Strzok and could lead towards major trouble for him.
Major breaches of national security oftentimes lead towards jail time for perpetrators.
Do you think Peter Strzok should be investigated for this breach of national security?
