GOP Rep. Trey Gowdy unloaded on the FBI and the Department of Justice this week over the agency’s missing text messages, slamming the bureau for “losing” five month’s worth of anti-Trump communications and saying he has seen stunning “texts about deleting texts.”
The Republican congressman was speaking with Fox News when he called-out the FBI after the bureau admitted it was unable to retrieve months and months of texts between senior agent Peter Strzok and DOJ lawyer Lisa Page.
“Lay aside this glaring five-month gap in texts that the world’s premier agency somehow missed, lay that aside,” said Gowdy. “What Johnny 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.”
“I saw an interesting text that Director Comey was going to update the President of the United States about an investigation. I don’t know if that was the Hillary investigation […] I find it interesting the head of the FBI was going to update the President, who at that point would have been President Obama,” he added.
