OH LOOK! Justice Department Watchdog Finds 'Lost' FBI Text Messages

The Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz informed lawmakers Thursday that he has found the missing five months of text messages between senior FBI officials Peter Strzok and Lisa Page that the DOJ said were lost due to a technical glitch.

In a letter to Homeland Security & Governmental Affairs Committee Chairman Ron Johnson (R-WI) and Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-IA), Horowitz wrote:

The OIG has been investigating this matter and, this week, succeeded in using forensic tools to recover text messages from FBI devices, including text messages between Mr. Strzok and Ms. Page that were sent or received between December 14, 2016, and May 17, 2017.

That time period covered a number of significant developments in the FBI’s investigation of the Trump Russia allegations and the lead-up to the special counsel, which was convened on May 17, 2017.

The DOJ last Friday informed lawmakers that it had lost text messages between Strzok and Page during that time due to the technical glitch, and unnamed federal law enforcement officials told Fox News that those glitches had affected nearly 10 percent of the FBI’s 35,000 employees.

I hope it's all of them and not ones that have been cherry-picked by the FBI.

88% of the "Lost" emails had to do with directions on covering Hillary's ass in the investigation.

This did no good at all. The utterly corrupt DOJ and FBI are still conspiring to keep them all from becoming public. Ryan seems to be working with them in the effort. Ryan lied they had agreed to the release of all of them. Now one speed bump after the other. Not buying Ryan got rolled. Ryan seems to be dirty.

88% are still being kept from us. Latest is Muller the most corrupt FBI agent ever. He is the excuse to not give Congress what it has every right to have. Special Prosecutor or not.
