Drain the Swamp: Rge FBI ‘Failed To Preserve’ Five Months Of Text Messages Between Anti-Trump FBI Agents … Mark Meadows Calls for Second Special Counsel After FBI “Loses” Strzok Text Messages
JUST CRIMINAL … FBI CLAIMS TEXT MESSAGES BETWEEN PETER STRZOK AND LISA PAGE MISSING.
From The Daily Caller comes this troubling and obvious story, the FBI coincidentally has failed to preserve” five months worth of text messages exchanged between Peter Strzok and Lisa Page. Imagine that. Of all the data that the FBI has some hoe failed to save, it is from the two FBI employees who made pro-Clinton and anti-Trump comments while working on the Clinton email and the Russia collusion investigations. REALLY? Sorry, the FBI needs an enema and individuals need to be prosecuted and go to prison. These types of corrupt actions cannot take place in America. The FBI has lost all credibility and this does “stink to the high heavens.” Who honestly thinks this data is really lost forever, even as the FBI may try to cover their corrupt tracks?
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.
“The result was that data that should have been automatically collected and retained for long-term storage and retrieval was not collected,” Boyd wrote. In his AP story today, Eric Tucker adds that “the FBI declined to comment Sunday.”
JOHN adds: Given the manner in which Barack Obama politicized the upper reaches of the FBI, along with the rest of the Department of Justice–we know that the Bureau’s Deputy Director, Andrew McCabe, was involved in discussions of how the FBI might deprive Donald Trump of the presidency–I have absolutely no confidence that the Bureau’s deleting of five months’ worth of critical texts was accidental.
JOE adds: We don’t know whether the FBI’s five-month records evaporation was deliberate or mere incompetence. But there is no doubt that those text messages can be found. Whereas once upon a time a text message was sent from one cell phone, to a tower, briefly cached, and sent to the recipient cell phone, today text messages are transmitted over cloud-based platforms that all, with rare exceptions, save the complete data. Moreover, it isn’t just in one place (say, Google’s messaging platform, or Apple’s iMessage platform) where these messages are saved. Each party’s smart phone is backed up, probably both to the cloud and to a home computer. These backups, too, would contain the text messages in question.
This is beyond corruption. We have a politicized FBI that was weaponized against a presidential candidate in Donald Trump and then tried to stage a coup to overthrow a duly elected president … now covering up their crimes!!! Via The Gateway Pundit, on Sunday afternoon Freedom Caucus Chairman and Rep. Jim Jordan called for a second special counsel investigation of the corrupt FBI.
THE FBI, DOJ, NSA & IRS ALL NEED TO BE PURGED …
As reported by John Soloman at The Hill, Republican-led House and Senate committees are investigating whether the individuals involved in the Russia counterintelligence investigation had contacts with the news media that resulted in improper leaks. That would be illegal leaks. Did FBI counterintelligence agent Peter Strzok and bureau lawyer Lisa Page leak information to the media? UNREAL. The very people who are supposed to enforce the laws of the United States are the ones breaking them. But when its “Get Trump,” all things are allowed. These people and several others in the FBI, DOJ and throw in the IRS need to be tried and sent to prison. When America loses faith in these so-called apolitical entities, its over. As stated at Red State, “All signs point to FBI Text Messages Suggest Senior Agents Were Sources of Trump Dossier Leaks.”
Republican-led House and Senate committees are investigating whether leaders of the Russia counterintelligence investigation had contacts with the news media that resulted in improper leaks, prompted in part by text messages amongst senior FBI officials mentioning specific reporters, news organizations and articles.
In one exchange, FBI counterintelligence agent Peter Strzok and bureau lawyer Lisa Page engaged in a series of texts shortly before Election Day 2016 suggesting they knew in advance about an article in The Wall Street Journal and would need to feign stumbling onto the story so it could be shared with colleagues.
“Article is out, but hidden behind paywall so can’t read it,” Page texted Strzok on Oct. 24, 2016.
“Wsj? Boy that was fast,” Strzok texted back, using the initials of the famed financial newspaper. “Should I ‘find’ it and tell the team?”
The text messages, which were reviewed by The Hill, show the two FBI agents discussed how they might make it appear they innocently discovered the article, such as through Google News alerts.
“I can get it like I do every other article that hits any Google News alerts, seriously,” Strzok wrote, adding he didn’t want his team hearing about the article “from someone else.”
The FBI Launches New Clinton Foundation Investigation Into Any Pay-to-Play Politics or Other Illegal Activities (VIDEO)
NOW FOR THE REAL INVESTIGATIONS INTO CORRUPTION …
The shoe might finally have dropped on the Clintons’. The Hill is reporting that the Justice Department has launched a new into whether the Clinton Foundation engaged in any pay-to-play politics or other illegal activities while Hillary Clinton served as Secretary of State in the Obama administration. A spokesperson for the Clinton’s has called the investigation a sham. However, as John Solomon writes, for years, “news media from the New York Times to The Daily Caller have reported countless stories on donations to the Clinton Foundation or speech fees that closely fell around the time of favorable decisions by Hillary Clinton’s State Department.” It is obvious from the Hillary Clinton email investigations that the Clinton’s received preferential treatment from the Obama DOJ and FBI in how that was handled. Why wouldn’t we think the same of this? What’s good for the gander should be good for the goose as well. Let’s have an independent prosecutor investigate the Clinton Foundation and her private email server and have it be an unlimited budget, open ended investigation while having all of the investigative team be Trump supporters and anti-Clinton folks. Go for it.
Sean Hannity: 1/4/18 – Hannity Fox News with John Soloman and Sara Carter
The Justice Department has launched a new inquiry into whether the Clinton Foundation engaged in any pay-to-play politics or other illegal activities while Hillary Clinton served as Secretary of State, law enforcement officials and a witness tells The Hill.
FBI agents from Little Rock, Ark., where the Foundation was started, have taken the lead in the investigation and have interviewed at least one witness in the last month, and law enforcement officials said additional activities are expected in coming weeks.
The officials, who spoke only on condition of anonymity, said the probe is examining whether the Clintons promised or performed any policy favors in return for largesse to their charitable efforts or whether donors made commitments of donations in hopes of securing government outcomes.
The probe may also examine whether any tax-exempt assets were converted for personal or political use and whether the Foundation complied with applicable tax laws, the officials said.
One witness recently interviewed by the FBI described the session to The Hill as “extremely professional and unquestionably thorough” and focused on questions about whether donors to Clinton charitable efforts received any favorable treatment from the Obama administration on a policy decision previously highlighted in media reports.
FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe to Retire from the FBI in coming Months & Get Full Pension (VIDEO)
RETIRE? HE NEEDS TO BE FIRED AND PROSECUTED!!!
As reported at The Hill, FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe is planning to retire in the coming months amid accusations from Republicans of partisanship and bias within the law enforcement agency. WHAT? This corrupt SOB needs to be fired prior to being fully eligible for any pension. Then he needs to be prosecuted and thrown in prison for his part in trying to alter an election. Of course his decision to retire has nothing to do with the fact that McCabe sat before three congressional committees this week, where he faced questions about his conduct and the FBI’s handling of the investigations. DRAIN THE SWAMP, FIRE THIS GUY AND INDITE HIM!!! As reported at The Daily Caller, McCabe’s departure comes days after The Post reported that FBI general counsel Jim Baker will be reassigned.
THE COLLUSION WAS BETWEEN THE FBI & DOJ TO PREVENT TRUMP FROM BEING PRESIDENT!!!
FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe is planning to retire in the coming months amid accusations from Republicans of partisanship and bias within the law enforcement agency.
The Washington Post reported Saturday that McCabe plans to step down in a few months, when he is fully eligible for pension benefits. That is expected to happen in early March.
McCabe has weathered GOP criticism of the FBI for over a year, with Republicans questioning the agency’s handling of the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server and, more recently, the probe into possible collusion between President Trump’s campaign and Russia.
The deputy director faced particular criticism after it was revealed that his wife, who ran for Virginia state Senate in 2015, received hundreds of thousands of dollars in campaign donations from a political action committee led by Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe, a Democrat with close ties to the Clintons.
Rep. Jim Jordan: Appears There Was Orchestrated Plan Within DOJ, FBI to Prevent Trump From Becoming President
COMEY AND THE FBI WERE BIAS AND CORRUPT AS HELL …
America, people need to go to prison for what was done and sorry Democrats, its not Donald Trump. Sen. Ron Johnson, chairman of the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs, said he had obtained from the FBI the draft remarks in which Comey laid out the FBI’s basis for declining to recommend criminal charges against Clinton and her aides.
Newly released documents obtained by Fox News reveal that then-FBI Director James Comey’s draft statement on the Hillary Clinton email probe was edited numerous times before his public announcement, in ways that seemed to water down the bureau’s findings considerably
Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., chairman of the Senate Homeland Security Committee, sent a letter to the FBI on Thursday that shows the multiple edits to Comey’s highly scrutinized statement.
In an early draft, Comey said it was “reasonably likely” that “hostile actors” gained access to then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s private email account. That was changed later to say the scenario was merely “possible.”
Another edit showed language was changed to describe the actions of Clinton and her colleagues as “extremely careless” as opposed to “grossly negligent.” This is a key legal distinction.
