FBI 'Secret Society' Texts Appear To Have Been Made In Jest

FBI 'Secret Society' Texts Appear To Have Been Made In Jest

Fox News' Sean Hannity claimed exclusive breaking news Wednesday night, reporting that the Justice Department had started to recover some of the missing texts between two FBI agents involved in Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into possible collusion between the Trump presidential campaign and Russian Federation.

In a letter sent to congressional committees on Thursday, Horowitz said his office "succeeded in using forensic tools to recover text messages from Federal Bureau of Investigation devices, including text messages between Mr Strzok and Ms Page that were sent or received between December 14, 2016 and May 17, 2017".

President Donald Trump called the missing text messages "one of the biggest stories in a long time" in a Tuesday tweet.

The inspector general's office is continuing its effort to recover any additional text messages exchanged by the pair, Horowitz wrote. Strzok and Page played key roles in the Clinton email investigation and the FBI's initial Russian Federation probe during that time. Page wrote to Strzok, according to a copy of the text ABC obtained. If I thought it was likely I'd be there no question.

Last Friday, the Justice Department handed Johnson's committee and other committees batch of more than 1,000 messages sent between Strzok and Page.

Trump suggested that the missing texts were worse than Watergate, the scandal that brought down Richard M. Nixon, comparing the months of missing messages to the 18.5 minutes of crucial White House tape that was mysteriously erased after the Watergate break-in.

"For we are opposed around the world by a monolithic and ruthless conspiracy that relies primarily on covert means for expanding its sphere of influence-on infiltration instead of invasion, on subversion instead of elections, on intimidation instead of free choice, on guerrillas by night instead of armies by day", Kennedy said, two years before his assassination.

He added, "What (Rep. John Ratcliffe, R-Texas) and I saw today was a text about not keeping texts, we saw more manifest bias against President Trump all the way through the election into the transition and I saw an interesting text that Director (James) Comey was going to update the President of the United States about an investigation".

The fire was fanned when Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) and Johnson made references to a "secret society" being mentioned in a message between Strzok and Page; however it appears that the message may have been a joke.

Lawmakers have refused to publicly release the full text message, sent the day after Trump won the 2016 presidential election.

Asked why the committee wouldn't subpoena Mr Kushner, Mr Grassley responded that the President's son-in-law has already spoken to a separate committee, the Senate Intelligence Committee, according to CNN.

Seriously: If you were in "secret society", would you go around texting about it?

The "secret society" text is among a large cache of messages handed over to House and Senate committees in the past two months. After news reports about the messages, lawmakers demanded to see them amid Republican concerns that agency officials were biased against Trump.
