Obstruction: FBI ‘Loses’ Five Months of Text Messages

The question of the day seems to be which will happen first: will Mueller’s Russia investigation find anything of substance before he and his FBI colleagues are ousted for collusion in the presidential election?

In the same day in which it became apparent, via Peter Strzok’s text messages to Lisa Page, that Loretta Lynch conspired with Comey to write the exoneration memo for Hillary, it was also revealed that five month’s worth of those text messages were curiously not saved on the FBI’s server.

And the five months in question just happen to be those immediately following the election and just before the appointment of Mueller as special investigator.

In other words, the time during which the agency might have been engaged in covering up its collusion.

How convenient.

If the FBI gets away with this, the IRS will be quite jealous.

Here’s more from Redstate…

Most everyone is familiar with the saga of FBI agent and lothario Peter Strzok, his paramour Lisa Page, their politically charged text messages, and the ominous promise of an “insurance policy”waiting in the wings just in case tired, sick, corrupt Hillary couldn’t win the election. The FBI turned over some 10,000 text messages between the two that were sent/received from their government issued phones. But that isn’t the end of the story. They turned over more documents on Friday and along with the documents, this:

“The Department wants to bring to your attention that the FBI’s technical system for retaining text messages sent and received on FBI mobile devices failed to preserve text messages for Mr. Strzok and Ms. Page,” Stephen Boyd, the assistant attorney general for legislative affairs at the Justice Department, wrote to Wisconsin Sen. Ron Johnson, the chairman of HSGAC.

He said that texts are missing for the period between Dec. 14, 2016 and May 17, 2017.

Boyd attributed the failure to “misconfiguration issues related to rollouts, provisioning, and software upgrades that conflicted with the FBI’s collection capabilities.”

“The result was that data that should have been automatically collected and retained for long-term storage and retrieval was not collected,” Boyd wrote.

If this sounds a lot like the IRS and Lois Lerner, it’s because it is a lot like the IRS an Lois Lerner.
