DEVELOPING=> Missing Strzok-Page Text Messages Could Only be Deleted By Someone inside FBI
This weekend the FBI released 50,000 text messages between top FBI Investigator Peter Strzok and his mistress and top FBI Attorney Lisa Page.
But the FBI told Congress thousands of text messages between the two agents were deleted during a five month period from December 2016 to May 2017.
The premier international intelligence agency said they lost them.
The FBI “lost” five months of text messages between Chief FBI Investigator Peter Strzok and his mistress and FBI Attorney Lisa Page.
The two agents were using Galaxy S5 phones preloaded with the Samsung Knox security suite.
Reporter Jack Posobiec says the text messages could not have been deleted, altered or disabled by anyone other than an FBI system expert.
The missing messages may still be recovered according to experts.
The Washington Examiner reported:
Investigators “may be able to recover deleted text messages from the cellphones used by the parties,” agreed Dennis Williams, a partner at Pathway Forensics LLC who worked three decades with the FBI, including as director of the Greater Houston Regional Computer Forensics Laboratory.
“If the users were using the Google cloud as a backup, messages could be found there. If the phone had been synced with the FBI desktop computer, or even a home computer, the messages could also be located on those devices. If the old phones are available, forensic exams of those phones could also recover the messages,” Vilfer said. “The particular FBI employees of interest in this case had texted that they would be using an alternative messaging system, iMessage. This is on the Apple platform and would come with similar sources of possible backups—iCloud, their personal iPhone or Macs etc. I suspect that is where some real meat might be as it relates to their discussions.”
