Rep. Matt Gaetz Rings The Alarm On Latest FBI Bombshell: “The United States of America is in Jeopardy!” (VIDEO)
Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) joined “Hannity,” Monday evening to give his take on the latest bombshell to rock the FBI. The Florida Republican told Fox News host Sean Hannity he believes the “missing” Strzok-Page text messages illustrate how precarious of a position the United States is in when it comes to law and order.
“It is no longer disputable that a pro-Hillary Clinton, anti-Donald Trump bias has intractably infected the FBI, and the United States of America is in jeopardy as a consequence!”, warned Gaetz.

Among the messages is an exchange revealing Strzok and Page discussed an ‘insurance policy,’ against a Trump presidency.
The Wall Street Journal reported:
An FBI agent’s reference to “an insurance policy” in a much-debated text message was meant to convey that the bureau needed to aggressively investigate allegations of collusion between Donald Trump’s campaign and Russia, according to people familiar with his account.
Earlier in the evening, Rep. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) told Fox News host Lou Dobbs he does not believe the FBI’s explanation for the missing texts, reported The Gateway Pundit‘s Jim Hoft.
Rep. Ron DeSantis: “We need to find out where the actual devices are that Page and Strzok utilized. There’s no reason they shouldn’t be produced. We need an answer on that. And even if there was some type of glitch the idea that these text messages disappear, that is not the way it works with modern technology. I don’t buy this explanation. We need more. Think about this too. If the FBI were investigating any one of your listeners and they said, “Oh, documents magically deleted,’ or whatever the FBI was looking for magically deleted. Do you think for one minute that they would be able to get away with it? So similar to the IRS you can’t have a situation where a powerful government agency gets to live under a lower standard.”

On Sunday, we learned additional text messages sent and received by disgraced FBI agent Peter Strzok had been handed over to Congress. In yet another twist to the Strzok saga, the FBI failed to hand over a block of the agent’s text messages between Dec. 14, 2016, and May 17, 2017 because they went “missing.”
