It’s no coincidence that the FBI has conveniently lost text messages in two cases; one dealing with anti-Trumpers within the agency, and the other dealing with the Clinton investigation.
The FBI is claiming 5 months of texts from their employee Peter Strzok and lawyer Lisa Page are missing, yet the DOJ’s Inspector General, Michael Horowitz, contradicts this claim by stating his office received the “missing text” in August of last year.
As Zerohedge reported, is someone lying or just incompetent? Did Horowitz’s office *think* they had received the texts in question without actually verifying? Did the DOJ screw up and fail to read Horowitz’s letter before “losing” the text messages so that “leaky” Congressional investigators wouldn’t see them? Either way, this question needs answering.
In another separate case, you have more Clinton text documents going missing which is typical when the crime family is under any type of investigation as is evident from history.
Both Strzok and Page worked on probes (investigations) into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s emails and possible collusion between Russia and President Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign briefly, Reuters reported.
The texts missing are for the period between Dec. 14, 2016 and May 17, 2017.
UPDATE: The text messages have been found and are being recovered according to the office of the Inspector General.
Strzok, a veteran counterintelligence agent, was discharged from Robert Mueller’s team after Mueller learned that Strzok had exchanged politically charged anti-Trump text messages with an FBI lawyer. The lawyer, Lisa Page, left Mueller’s team before the text messages were discovered.
“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, Newsmax reported.
Other text messages between Strzok and FBI lawyer Lisa Page discuss how hackers likely obtained an email exchange between then-President Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton. The exchange was later covered up by the FBI after the incident was removed from Comey’s closing statement on Clinton’s email investigation, AP reported.
From the text messages between FBI Agent Strzok and DOJ/FBI Lawyer Lisa Page that are available, we see that FBI Director of Counterintelligence Bill Priestap helped create the statement that FBI Director James Comey delivered in July 2016 to extricate Clinton from her investigation.
Changing the original words, Comey used Preistap to remove the connection between then-President Barack Obama to the email account of Secretary Clinton.
The Hill‘s John Solomon revealed Comey’s original memo:
Ex-FBI Director James Comey’s original statement closing out the probe into Hillary Clinton‘s use of a private email server was edited by subordinates to remove five separate references to terms like “grossly negligent” and to delete mention of evidence supporting felony and misdemeanor violations, according to copies of the full document.
Comey also originally concluded that it was “reasonably likely” that Clinton’s nonsecure private server was accessed or hacked by hostile actors though there was no evidence to prove it. But that passage was also changed to the much weaker “possible,” the memos show.
This reporter’s leak in August entitled: “FBI REBELS? Leak Hillary Clinton’s Missing Emails Were Offered To JOURNALISTS & Darknet For $500K; Given To FBI Covered Up” highlighted that the home-brewed server was hacked and that Comey’s statement was contradicted. Essentially, Comey and the FBI broke the law by lying in a federal statement to protect Hillary Clinton and former President Barack Obama.
The original Guccifer’s server was found to have mirrored Clinton’s server while emails were for sale on the darkweb for a whopping $500,000.
Further, anyone with a bit of computer knowledge could have “hacked” it from inside their own basement since Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) and VNC (virtual network computing) ports were open, according to The Register.
The Associated Press admitted that a set of Clinton’s emails released by the State Department showed the government agency had to disable several security processes on their servers just to get it to accept email from Clinton’s private email address. Another email reveals that Clinton’s server was attacked 10 times and had to be shut down, Judicial Watch documents revealed.
Clinton herself admitted to a confidant that she suspected she had been hacked according to her top aide Huma Abedin. She reiterated that thought during a private speech, as transcripts published by WikiLeaks revealed.
“We were attacked every hour of every day and not only through the State Department system, but also through individual, personal accounts, just really fishing for anything they could get,” Clinton said in a private speech to employees of Deutsche Bank AG.
Maybe that’s why one of Clinton’s aides told a Platte River Networks employee, “Clinton didn’t need access to emails older than 60 days so the retention policy should be changed,” according to an FBI report.
Then there is the GOP operative Peter W. Smith, who sought Clinton’s emails and said he “discovered five groups of hackers two of which he alleged were Russian, on the darkweb that had copies of all 33,000 Clinton emails.” Smith, unsure of the authenticity of the emails’ hackers, eventually did send them to him and he told them to pass them on to WikiLeaks.
Smith was then found dead in a hotel near Mayo Clinic on May 14, according to death records from Olmsted County, Minnesota before receiving the documents and writing his own death note that he had taken his life due to “medical difficulties and an expiring health insurance plan.”
In September of last year, the Intelligence Committees in both the House and Senate claimed they possessed the so-called “Russian files” consisting of Clinton emails that ended up on Deep Web allegedly by hacking a server setup by Guccifer in Romania. The FBI later confirmed the existence of this server and the files contained on it in the fourth part of its report on Clinton’s email scandal.
