Congressional leaders continue to release incendiary texts exchanged between anti-Trump officials inside the FBI, with new messages showing at least one agent sought to “get around” security procedures that would have exposed their inappropriate conversations.
According to the Washington Examiner, recently published messages between senior FBI agent Peter Strzok and DOJ lawyer Lisa Page confirm the duo attempted to conceal their private anti-Trump communications; even asking “We get around our security/monitoring issues?”
Page initiated the conversation, informing Strzok she was about to receive a new Apple iPhone from the agency’s Information and Technology department.
“Hot damn. I’m happy to pilot that…we get around our security/monitoring issues?” responded Strzok.
“No, he’s proposing that we just stop following them. Apparently the requirement to capture texts came from omb, but we’re the only org (I’m told) who is following that rule. His point is, if no one else is doing it why should we,” Page responded.
The revelation comes as Congressional leaders struggle to get to the bottom of widespread anti-Trump abuse and corruption inside the Department of Justice. Other text messages exchanged between the two officials go so far as to discuss an “insurance policy” should Trump win the 2016 general election.
