DOJ in process of recovering 5 months of missing FBI texts, Obama retains council


It looks as if a major storm is brewing in Washington, the stage is being set for the final showdown in the Russian collusion saga

WASHINGTON (INTELLIHUB) — The Department of Justice has started to recover five months worth of missing texts from FBI officials Peter Strzok and Lisa Page after it was learned a ‘technical glitch’ had caused their deletion during a time when anti-Trump communications in the ranks of the FBI were at an all-time high.

Fox News reports:

Federal law enforcement officials had notified congressional committees that a technical glitch affected thousands of FBI cellphones between Dec. 14, 2016 and May 17, 2017. This meant that 5 months’ worth of texts would be missing from Strzok and Page, both of whom are under scrutiny after it was revealed that the former members of special counsel Robert Mueller’s team exchanged anti-Trump texts during the 2016 presidential campaign.

Hannity said sources at the DOJ told him they have begun to recover some of the texts from that time period. Specific content from those texts has not been released.

The missing messages have caused problems for the Justice Department inspector general’s office.

Senate Homeland Security Committee Chairman Ron Johnson, R-Wis., and Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, have sent a letter to Inspector General Michael Horowitz noting that the IG’s office said on Dec. 13 that it had all the messages between Strzok and Page between Nov. 30, 2016, and July 28, 2017.

Sean Hannity went on air Wednesday to urge congress to “release the memo” which may shed further light on the matter.

Additionally, a source fairly close to the President has indicated to Intellihub contact that former President Barack H. Obama has quietly retained council over the matter.

Buckle up people, this may get interesting.
