When the Clinton News Network reports on a Hillary Clinton scandal, you know it’s a big deal.
CNN was forced to report today that the Trump administration Department of Justice is probing the FBI, attempting to find out how 50,000 “missing” text messages were lost.
The texts are between FBI agents Peter Strzok and his mistress Lisa Page, both hardcore pro-Clinton, anti-Trump investigators who actually worked on Hillary’s email case.
The story as CNN (cautiously) tells it:
Attorney General Jeff Sessions pledged Monday to get to the bottom of a question asked this week by a growing number of top Republicans: How did the FBI lose a series of messages sent during a critical time period between two bureau employees currently in the crosshairs of an internal Justice Department investigation?
The gap in the exchange — between top FBI officials who have come under fire for criticizing then-presidential candidate Donald Trump — was revealed to lawmakers by the Justice Department as it produced a second batch of the pair’s text messages to six congressional committees over the weekend.
Senate Homeland Security Committee Chairman Ron Johnson first raised an alarm over the missing messages in a letter sent to FBI Director Christopher Wray on Saturday, and late Monday was joined by the GOP chairmen of three powerful House committees.
“The omission of text messages between December 2016 and May 2017, a critical gap encompassing the FBI’s Russia investigation, is equally concerning,” House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte, House Oversight Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy and House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes wrote in a joint statement. “Rather than clearing up prior FBI and DOJ actions, these recently produced documents cause us to further question the credibility and objectivity of certain officials at the FBI.”
Will the “50,000 text messages” become as infamous as Hillary’s “33,000 emails?”
