House Republicans are seething over the FBI’s “loss” of an extensive series of text messages between two FBI agents involved in probing Hillary Clinton’s infamous email scandal and President Trump’s campaign, affirms Breitbart News.
The “Lost” Texts and Feedback from House Republicans
The official story alleges that the FBI is currently unable to locate text messages between FBI agents Peter Strzok and Lisa Page. Strzok and Page supposedly exchanged messages expressing their abhorrence of then-future President Trump during the 2016 election and mentioned an “insurance policy” reserved for his victory.
The aforementioned texts were unearthed during a probe into whether or not political bias influenced the investigations into Clinton email scandal and President Trump’s campaign.
Furthermore, assertions of the FBI simply losing a series of potentially damning text messages has raised several eyebrows. Many Americans don’t believe it. Others are calling for a direct probe into the alleged “loss.”
Arizona Republican Andy Biggs shared the hereinafter public statement earlier today:
“This latest revelation from the DOJ is outrageous, but not surprising. Peter Strzok and Lisa Page believed that then-candidate Donald Trump was a threat to this country. [They] appeared to be taking steps, as sworn members of law enforcement, to subvert the will of the American people. Now, it seems that many of their text messages may have suspiciously disappeared.”
Other members of the GOP are not buying the story that the texts are “lost.” Several Republicans took to social media to opine their disbelief:
What Does America Think About the “Lost” Messages?
Like Republicans, many Americans have conveyed very strong skepticism about the missing texts. People are moreover having trouble believing that the FBI could simply misplace the aforesaid messages. Theories of deep state involvement, FBI corruption, and worse have also made the rounds on social media:
Details Regarding the Original Investigation
Not only did agents Strzok and Page allegedly discuss their aversion to President Trump, but they are also said to have conversed about the original investigation into potential political bias.
Furthermore, Strzok was one of the heads of the Clinton email probe. Is there a conflict of interest with Strzok texting about the investigation with Page, question Americans.
Many conservatives ultimately believe the fix to exonerate Clinton was always in. The recent revelations of “lost” text messages have fueled these beliefs.
