WOW! “Missing” FBI Texts Could Form Basis For MOTION TO DISMISS Mueller Witch Hunt
Additional text messages sent and received by disgraced FBI agent Peter Strzok have been handed over to Congress, reports the Associated Press. In yet another twist to the Strzok saga, the FBI failed to hand over a block of the agent’s text messages because they have gone missing.
According to law reporters Rachel Stockman and Ronn Blitzer, the missing texts could form the basis for motion to dismiss special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia probe.
Law & Crime reports:
The fact that now nearly half a year’s worth of text messages between Strzok and Page during the time leading up to Robert Mueller‘s appointment as Special Counsel weren’t preserved by the Justice Department will surely fuel motions from Team Trump’s lawyers against the investigation.
Months of text messages don’t just accidentally disappear. One past conversation between Strzok and Page indicated that former Attorney General Loretta Lynch knew there would be no charges filed against Clinton well before that investigation ended. Given the significant evidence of impropriety in the Clinton case, a foregone conclusion of innocence before the FBI wrapped up their investigation looks shady at best. Trump’s lawyers will surely argue that after those messages came to light, the DOJ intentionally “lost” those five months’ worth of other messages.
As news of the missing text messages send shockwaves throughout Washington, D.C., Team Mueller may be quietly preparing for another scandal to hit the investigation; the release of the explosive FISA abuse memo.
Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) joined Fox News host Tucker Carlson Friday evening and assured the shocking memo will prove special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation is “rotten to the core.”
According to Fox News contributor Sara Carter, the contents of the memo are so “explosive,” that it could end special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia probe. Additionally, the memo’s release could lead to the prosecution of top FBI and Justice Department officials, contends Carter.
The Washington Examiner‘s Byron York reports Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-VA), Oversight Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy (R-SC) and Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes (R-CA) huddled together Saturday to discuss a “never-before-used procedure” for releasing the “shocking” FISA abuse memo.
