IT DOESN’T MATTER HOW THESE MEMOS WERE LOST, THEY NEED TO BE RECOVERED …
From Sean Hannity’s show last night from 1/24/18, Hannity’s guests further expose the “Deep State” that operates against the will of the American people. These individuals thought they would never be caught and all of these crimes would go unknown. The House will release the 4 page intel memo and will not be bullied by the DOJ who told Congress not to release it. Some one might want to remind the DOJ that it is the Peopl’s elected Congress who has over-sight over them.
Fox News’ Sean Hannity said Wednesday night on “Hannity” that the Justice Department has started recovering some of the missing texts between FBI officials Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, citing DOJ sources.
Federal law enforcement officials had notified congressional committees that a technical glitch affected thousands of FBI cellphones between Dec. 14, 2016 and May 17, 2017. This meant that 5 months’ worth of texts would be missing from Strzok and Page, both of whom are under scrutiny after it was revealed that the former members of special counsel Robert Mueller’s team exchanged anti-Trump texts during the 2016 presidential campaign.
Hannity said sources at the DOJ told him they have begun to recover some of the texts from that time period. Specific content from those texts has not been released.
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.
THE REAL COLLUSION WAS THE CONSPIRACY TO PREVENT TRUMP FROM BEING ELECTED AND THEN TRYING TO TAKE HIM DOWN AFTER HE WAS …
We may want to file the OPED by Michael Goodwin of The NY Post under the category, gee ya think? The scandal at the FBI, DOJ and aided by Obama admin officials is nothing short of a full scale “deep state” operating outside the lines of the United States government. Who needs J. Edgar Hoover when you have Robert Mueller, James Comey and Peter Strzok. Had this been done by Republicans, the MSM would be calling for these people to be fired, brought up on charges and marched off to prison. However, this scandal is going to be so bad, even the Democrats and their propaganda machine media won’t be able to save them this time. During Watergate the issue was the case of the missing 18 1/2 minutes of tapes, now we have 5 months of missing texts from the FBI and the LEFT acts like, move on, nothing to see here.
Special Report With Bret Baier Jan 23, 2018- Interview with Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI)
During the financial crisis, the federal government bailed out banks it declared “too big to fail.” Fearing their bankruptcy might trigger economic Armageddon, the feds propped them up with taxpayer cash.
Something similar is happening now at the FBI, with the Washington wagons circling the agency to protect it from charges of corruption. This time, the appropriate tag line is “too big to believe.”
Yet each day brings credible reports suggesting there is a massive scandal involving the top ranks of America’s premier law enforcement agency. The reports, which feature talk among agents of a “secret society” and suddenly missing text messages, point to the existence both of a cabal dedicated to defeating Donald Trump in 2016 and of a plan to let Hillary Clinton skate free in the classified email probe.
If either one is true — and I believe both probably are — it would mean FBI leaders betrayed the nation by abusing their powers in a bid to pick the president.
More support for this view involves the FBI’s use of the Russian dossier on Trump that was paid for by the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee. It is almost certain that the FBI used the dossier to get FISA court warrants to spy on Trump associates, meaning it used the opposition research of the party in power to convince a court to let it spy on the candidate of the other party — likely without telling the court of the dossier’s political link.
Even worse, there is growing reason to believe someone in President Barack Obama’s administration turned over classified information about Trump to the Clinton campaign
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.
Fox & Friends 1/19/18: Rep. Ron Desantis (R-FL) Calls For Declassification of Damning House Intel Docs for the American People to See (VIDEO) … #RELEASE THE MEMO
#RELEASE THE MEMO …
And now we know why United States Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein fought tooth and nail to not release these documents. It was a CYA. It does appear that the Obama administration did use intel from the “dirty” dossier to surveil Team Trump. The insurance policy was the witch hunt investigation. We are starting to connect the dots with actual evidence where the real corruption and collusion really was.
During the interview on Fox & Friends Desantis said while he was reviewing the memos, “You have got to be kidding, I can’t believe they did that.”
