If it looks like a cover up, smells like a cover up and acts like a cover up — guess what?
It’s a cover up.
First Hillary Clinton wiped her rogue servers with Bleach Bit, deleted 33,000 emails and smashed the devices under investigation with a hammer. Now the Department of Justice informs us investigators weren’t able to find critical text messages between disgraced FBI agents Peter Strzok and Lisa Page during their time working on Special Counsel Mueller’s Russian “collusion” investigation.
A DOJ official claimed there were “misconfiguration issues” with the tool used to recover data from the phones and “accidentally” erased thousands of text messages between December 15, 2016 through May 17, 2017, a critical time frame that would’ve provided Congressional oversight committees and watchdog groups with vital information about the genesis of the ongoing Special Counsel investigation into the 2016 Trump campaign that still hasn’t found any evidence of Russian “collusion.”
Saturday, the President tweeted “Wow. 19,000 Texts between Lisa Page and her lover Peter S of the FBI, in charge of the Russia Hoax, were just reported as being wiped clean and gone. Such a big story that will never be covered by the Fake News. Witch Hunt!”
Many of the text messages in question have since been recovered by the Inspector General for the Justice Department, with help from the Department of Defense, which had to go to great lengths to retrieve them. Nevertheless, when it comes to restoring trust with voters who see how politicized the DOJ has become — it’s too little, too late.
Americans can see the dual justice system at work.
It’s a department that gave Hillary Clinton and her associates immunity despite a laundry list of lawbreaking, and now allows Mueller and his gang of hack prosecutors to go after the president and his associates in what more resembles an inquisition — than a legitimate investigation.
Take this latest nugget from none other than James Comey himself. In an MSNBC interview last week, the fired FBI Director admitted that the way the FBI — per his orders — interviewed Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn while he worked in the White House was far from typical. Comey said it was “something I probably wouldn’t have done or maybe gotten away with in a more…organized Administration.” He explained that “If the FBI wanted to send agents into the White House itself to interview a senior official, you would work through the White House counsel, and there would be discussions and approvals and who would be there.”
That’s not not how they handled Trump’s former National Security Advisor. Far from it. In fact the two agents Comey dispatched to interview Flynn discouraged him from having an attorney present. In short, they set him up.
You don’t say.
