OH, SO THEY ARE NOT CORRUPT, JUST INCOMPETENT …
FOX News reports that thousands of FBI cellphones were affected by the so called technical glitch that the DOJ says prevented five months’ worth of text messages between FBI officials Peter Strzok and Lisa Page from being stored or uploaded into the bureau’s archive system. Do then why didn’t they say this in the first place? Supposedly the glitch affected the phones of “nearly” 10 percent of the FBI’s 35,000 employees. Conveniently enough, Peter Strzok and Lisa Page were among those 10 percent. Sadly, with all of the conspiracies, anti-Trump behavior, questionable texts and actions coming out of the DOJ and FBI, it is hard to find what they are saying is credible anymore. But no matter whether this was intentional or a glitch, it is important that the FBI produce this 5 month period of texts. We all know they can, if they want to.
EXCLUSIVE: Thousands of FBI cellphones were affected by the technical glitch that the DOJ says prevented five months’ worth of text messages between FBI officials Peter Strzok and Lisa Page from being stored or uploaded into the bureau’s archive system, federal law enforcement officials tell Fox News.
The missing messages have been at the center of a storm of controversy on Capitol Hill, after the DOJ notified congressional committees that there is a gap in records between Dec. 14, 2016, and May 17, 2017. Strzok and Page are under scrutiny after it was revealed that the former members of Robert Mueller’s team exchanged a series of anti-Trump texts during the presidential campaign.
The gap in records covered a crucial period, raising suspicion among GOP lawmakers about how those messages disappeared.
But Fox News is told that the glitch affected the phones of “nearly” 10 percent of the FBI’s 35,000 employees.
Senior Department of Justice officials told Fox News they are “taking steps” to possibly recover the texts from the appropriate cellphone carriers. The same officials told Fox News they are also making every effort to track down the physical cellphones in question so they could be subject to a forensic review.
The missing messages have caused problems for the Department of Justice Office of Inspector General.
From The Hill, On Tuesday, Sens. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) and Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), chairmen of the powerful Oversight and Government Reform and Judiciary committees, sent a letter to the Justice Department inspector general demanding to know why he only now disclosed the missing text messages.
