DOJ Destroyed Missing Strzok/Page Text Messages Before The IG Could Review Them
federalist ^ | 12/13/2018 | Bre Payton

Posted on 12/13/2018 9:10:43 PM PST by bitt

The Department of Justice wiped text messages between former FBI employees Lisa Page and Peter Strozk from their cell phones before the Office of the Inspector General could review them, a new report from the DOJ watchdog reveals.

Page and Strozk’s involvement with special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation has been heavily scrutinized after it was revealed they had sent numerous anti-Trump text messages back and forth to one another. Mueller has been tasked with looking into whether or not Donald Trump and his campaign associates coordinated with Russian officials to steal the 2016 election away from Hillary Clinton.

The 11-page report reveals that almost a month after Strzok was removed from Mueller’s team, his government-issued iPhone was wiped clean and restored to factory settings by another individual working in Mueller’s office. The special counsel’s Record’s Officer told investigators that “she determined it did not contain records that needed to be retained.”

“She noted in her records log about Strzok’s phone: ‘No substantive texts, notes or reminders,'” the report states.

Not her right to make that decision. These people are despicable.

Two bit lowlife thugs... ‘justice’ for liberal ‘elites’ and scraps for the rest of us...

It’s NOT justice if it’s not ‘justice for all’...

There was once a fire in a Little Rock building where the Clintons lost a large number of documents.

James Comey was their lawyer at the time.

Huh.

[ Why are these people not in jail,as we would be if we destroyed government property? ]

Why do we still bow to the IRS when the same people/party disrespect ICE with their “sanctuary city” bullcrap?

A national tax strike is looking to be the ONLY way, followed by a civil war if that doesn’t work.

I’m a financial adviser. In our business, regulated, we aren’t allowed to conduct business via text. For record keeping purposes we have very strict protocols. The stuff these clowns have done, even worse with Hillary, would have us out of a career instantly

Question for techie types. Are texts stored on the phone or are they more like emails which are stored on a server somewhere?

Maybe Comey was the keeper of those 900 FBI files the Clintons’ stooge “lost”.

(edited for truth)

The special counsel’s Record’s Officer told investigators that “she determined it did contain records that needed to be erased.”

“She noted in her records log about Strzok’s phone: ‘No substantive texts, notes or reminders, exist now’” the report states.

We have actually gone banana republic: FBI, DOJ, IRS, State Dept. and other agencies just ignoring Congress, ignoring subpoenas, ignoring Court orders, ignoring the law, choosing political enemies to pursue and friends to protect. In other words, thoroughly, irredeemably corrupt.

I said it early and I’ve said it often: we are long past the tyranny our forefathers deemed grounds for rebellion. If Washington, Adams, Jeffreson, Revere and Paine were alive today, they would be issuing a call to arms.

This is only peripherally the issue. Flynn was interviewed on Jan 24, 2017 by Strzok and another agent, I forget his last name which starts with a “P”. If you are going to submit as evidence notes on something you took part in and offer those notes as credible, they are supposed to be “contemporaneous”, meaning they should be dated as close as possible to the event you’re taking those notes on. Those notes are taken on FBI form 302.

The idea that you’d submit notes dated 7 months later is absurd on its face.

The idea that you destroyed your original, contemporaneous notes and are now submitting these newer ones is or should be considered direct evidence of “sanitization” or some other mode of deliberate tampering.

That date, in August 2017, is *AFTER* Strzok was fired. It came out I believe in May 2017 that he had issued those egregious anti-Trump tweets to Lisa Page.

An astute judge who has any sort of independence, eg; one who does not simply accept anything the FBI says as gospel truth, would throw out the obviously sanitized Flynn 302 forms as “doctored” and pretty much throw out the case at the same time. There is essentially no way the 302 evidence..which is all the evidence there is since there is no recording of the Flynn interview... is not tampered with.

And the judge should order Strzok to pick out and purchase a modest suburban $850K No. Va. house for General Flynn, since he had to sell his to pay for his defense.

I omitted the tyrants in black robes, the vote fraud, the gerrymandering, sanctuary cities, the open floodgates of illegal immigration and the utter failure to enforce immigration laws.
