Kirsters Baish| New texts between two anti-Trump FBI officials have been released, and bombshells are dropping. The texts include information that implies former Attorney General Loretta Lynch was well aware long before former FBI Director James Comey’s press conference in 2016 that he was planning on recommending not charging Hillary Clinton for her crimes.
The Hill reported that the revelation was packed within 384 pages of newly released text messages between former FBI officials Peter Strzok and his mistress, Lisa Page. The discovery of these messages ruin the credibility of Loretta Lynch’s earlier commitment to accept James Comey’s recommendation. Keep in mind that Lynch made this commitment under the pretense that the two FBI officials were not coordinating with one another.
That’s not even the worst part. James Comey and Loretta Lynch have been reported to have known that Hillary Clinton would not see charges before the FBI ever even conducted their three-hour interview with her. This interview was meant to allow them to gather more information on her alleged mishandling of classified information. Some good the interview did.
When the Lynch announcement was made public on July 1, 2016, Lisa Page sent Peter Strzok a text message which read, “And yeah, it’s a real profile in couragw [sic], since she knows no charges will be brought.”
This proves that Comey and Lynch as well as the FBI agents knew that they were interviewing Clinton to get everyone off their backs, not to gather relevant information. Anything they found during the interview was going to be thrown out anyway. Now we are left with the question of how the hell did they know this? There’s ore. There were five months of text message between Strzok and Page that were found to be missing.
The FBI notified Congress in the cover letter to the text messages that there were many missing messages. The FBI claimed its “technical system for retaining text messages sent and received on FBI mobile devices failed to preserve text messages for Mr. Strzok and Ms. Page from December 14, 2016 to approximately to [sic] May 17, 2017.”
Their claim was that many FBI-provided Samsung 5 phones didn’t save or store messages because of a misconfiguration issue which had to do with rollouts, provisioning, as well as software upgrades that conflicted with the FBI’s own collection capabilities. They claimed that because of this, the data that should have been saved automatically was not.
Ron Johnson, a Republican Senate Homeland Security Committee member from Wisconsin, called the loss of records “concerning.”
The messages also indicted that the FBI was making their decisions based on how well Donald Trump was doing during the primaries.
If you’re wondering, MYE stands for midyear exam. This was the FBI case name for the Clinton email investigation.
The messages between Strzok and Page also showed that the two had removed language from the Comey statement on Clinton which could have been very damaging. It was clear that this was to mitigate what she originally was guilty of. Comey’s original statement included that she used a personal email when communicating with President Barack Obama who was in a “territory of sophisticated adversaries.” They took out Obama’s identity making the whole thing seem less important.
There were other messages which lead us to believe that Strzok and Page were trying to bend the rules to preserve documents.
There is some seriously sketchy behavior going on here. The FBI is an organization that was created to protect the American people. It seems that the corruption of governmental power has taken over the entire FBI. This is entirely unacceptable.
