Those involved with helping to hide and delete the evidence of the Strzok/Page involvement with the attempts to take down Trump, the folks we like to call “Obama’s Dirty Cops,” are being exposed one treasonous act at a time, and the information below couldn’t be any more clear. A former FBI agent has come out to challenge the lies and false rhetoric surrounding the supposed “technical glitch” that is being blamed for missing texts that would blow this investigation wide open.
The FBI has always had ways of getting the info that has supposedly been lost to device failure as we saw in the Hillary email Scandal, even though those emails were of criminal content Hillary Clinton was still cleared. Unfortunately for Strzok and his group of anti-Trumpers, these missing texts will not save any of them, and it could very well reopen the investigations into Clinton as well as Obama.
Both who were highly involved in this entire scandal from day one, which has been proven time and time again since the 2016 elections ended. The Democrats tried to derail all of this with every tactic they could think of from the “Russian collusion” scandal to the newest fight against Trump on DACA.
According to the Gateway Pundit :
Another day, another scandal compliments of the FBI.
Sara Carter reports:
A former FBI special agent, who worked extensively on counterterrorism related cases, stated they were “dumbfounded” by the FBI’s original excuse that the text messages were irretrievable.
“Even though the servers ‘lost’ the text messages of Strzok they would still be on his actual device, even if he deleted them,” stated the former FBI special agent, who asked to speak on background due to the sensitivity of the case. “That’s how we catch bad guys, we forensically search their phones. Nothing disappears off the device, nothing… unless they take a hammer to it or microwave it. The question is, the FBI knows this, so why did the bureau say they couldn’t retrieve them – why did they mislead Congress.” […]
A former informant for the FBI, who spoke to this reporter, said the FBI was able to do the same with his Samsung 5 telephone registered to Verizon and he questioned why the FBI told the committees the information was not retrievable.
“Their forensic experts who worked on my Samsung 5, which was wiped clean, to retrieve the information they needed,” said the former FBI informant, who asked not to be named. This reporter viewed the documents for the informant’s phone and the permission they gave to the FBI to retrieve the text messages from the phone.
“The FBI forensics team said it would be no problem at all pulling up the missing texts from the phone,” the FBI informant said. “It makes me wonder why they didn’t do that with the two agents phones to begin with and why did they tell the committees they couldn’t retrieve the texts.’
According to Republican Senator Ron Johnson’s letter, the bureau told Stephen Boyd, the Assistant Attorney General for the Office of Legislative Affairs, that due to FBI-provided Samsung 5 mobile phones with software upgrades that “conflicted,” with “collection capabilities,” the text messages were not recorded.
However, according to the Daily Caller‘s Chuck Ross, the FBI claimed it the reportedly missing text messages to Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz on August 10th, 2017.
Strzok, who then served as the FBI’s No. 2 counterintelligence official, conducted many of the biggest interviews in the investigation, including with Clinton and her top aides, Huma Abedin and Cheryl Mills.
“After finding a number of politically-oriented text messages between Page and Strzok, the OIG sought from the FBI all text messages between Strzok and Page from their FBI-issued phones through November 30, 2016, which covered the entire period of the Clinton e-mail server investigation,” Horowitz wrote to Grassley and Johnson on Wednesday.
The FBI handed over those messages on July 20, 2017. After reviewing those exchanges, Horowitz expanded the investigation to include all of the text messages exchanged between Strzok and Page from Nov. 30, 2016, to July 28, 2017.
Horowitz’s office received those messages on Aug. 10.
Here is a screenshot from Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s letter to Grassley and Johnson confirming the FBI successfully sent over Page and Strzok’s text messages.
On December 13th, Horowitz confirmed to Johnson and Grassley that the text messages were received. However, just over a year later, Johnson, citing Boyd, said the FBI never handed over the text messages.
From what we know now, the probability that thousands of FBI agents lost their texts is not very high.
Why did the FBI tell the DOJ, who then told Congressional investigators, that the texts could not be located if foreign experts have retrieved messages in the past?
On Sunday, we learned additional text messages sent and received by disgraced FBI agent Peter Strzok had been handed over to Congress. In yet another twist to the Strzok saga, the FBI failed to hand over a block of the agent’s text messages between Dec. 14, 2016, and May 17, 2017, because they went “missing.”
The latest batch of FBI text messages provided by Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-IA), show agents Peter Strzok and Lisa Page leaked “confidential information,” to reporter Devlin Barrett, a reporter for the Wall Street Journal, and later the Washington Post.
The Conservative Treehouse reports:
On October 28th, 2016 (as above), at the exact time the re-opening of the Clinton investigation hit the media news-cycle, Page and Strzok were texting. From the released messaging we see at 5:19pm Lisa Page is on the phone with “Devlin”:
Page: 5:19pm “Still on the phone with Devlin. Mike’s phone is ON FIRE.”
Strzok: 5:29pm “You might wanna tell Devlin he should turn on CNN, there’s news on.”
Page: 5:30pm “He knows. He just got handed a note.”
Strzok: 5:33pm “Ha. He asking about it now?”
Page: 5:34pm “Yeah. It was pretty funny. Coming now.”
At 5:36pm Devlin Barrett tweets:
The recently released text messages appear to show Page held a phone call with Barrett about former Virginia governor Terry McAuliffe’s superPAC donating a whopping sum to the senate campaign of FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe’s wife.
Sources, as in Lisa Page – who Barrett was just (or still) on the phone with.
Looking back upon the released text messages, and comparing them to reporting by Devlin Barrett, another specific article jumps out.
On October 23rd, 2016, Devlin Barrett reported on a scoop:
“Scoop: McAuliffe PAC gave $467,500 to campaign of wife of senior FBI official who oversaw Clinton email probe” (link)
This October 23rd, 2016, “scoop” aligns with the internal text messaging discussion between Agent Peter Strzok and FBI Attorney Lisa Page who were discussing James Comey’s chief-of-staff James Rybicki recommending that FBI Asst. Director Andrew “Andy” McCabe should be recused from the Hillary Clinton investigation.
From the messaging the recusal was discussed mid-through-late October 2016:
00:52am …”if it’s a matter similar to those we’ve been talking about lately”…
In a letter sent to FBI Director Christopher Wray on Thursday, Grassley revealed text messages between Strzok and Page show ex-top official James Rybicki believed Deputy Director Andrew McCabe should have recused himself from the Hillary Clinton email Investigation.
