The US president has slammed the FBI for “blaming” South Korean tech giant Samsung for 50,000 missing text messages between top FBI agent Peter Strzok, who has been involved in both the Hillary Clinton email probe and FBI Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia probe, and lawyer Lisa Page, who were in a relationship and had criticized Donald Trump while he was still a presidential hopeful.

However, The Hill apparently wrongly understood the US president’s words and shared on Twitter an article titled “Trump blames Samsung for missing text messages between FBI agents critical of Trump.” The headline was apparently rewritten later when the error was spotted, as the article was then updated at 11:20 p.m. local time. The new headline says “Trump appears to call out Samsung over missing FBI text messages.”

On January 22, the US Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee said the FBI recently admitted it had failed to preserve the text messages exchanged between FBI counterintelligence official Strzok and his mistress, FBI lawyer Page.
