Donald Trump: Missing FBI Texts ‘One of the Biggest Stories in a Long Time’, by Charlie Spiering.
President Donald Trump directed attention to the news that five months of FBI texts between Peter Strzok and Lisa Page were now missing.
“In one of the biggest stories in a long time, the FBI now says it is missing five months worth of lovers Strzok-Page texts, perhaps 50,000, and all in prime time,” he wrote on Twitter. “Wow!”
The missing texts include messages from government phones issued to Strzok and Page from December 14, 2016 to May 17, 2017 — a key period of time in the Russia investigation.
Assistant Attorney General Stephen Boyd revealed to members of Congress that the FBI’s digital retainment system failed to save the text messages between the two employees.
Just happened to go missing?
We need to know a couple of things. Number one we need to know how the world’s premier law enforcement agency managed to lose five months worth of texts. …
What is missing is important but also what is there is important. It is manifest bias not just against Trump, but against his kids, against his business interests. There is a text where they hope the Trump Hotel fails. That is a level of bias that you rarely see and you never see from law enforcement officers. …
It’s the day after the election and it’s the same two people that were discussing a little bit later in the text the damage they had done with the Clinton investigation and how they could, quote, fix it and make it right.
That is a level of bias that is stunning among law enforcement officers.
