White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders didn’t hold back when asked to comment on the FBI’s missing anti-Trump text messages, saying there’s a “great cause for concern” and that the data in question is “very convenient” for the Department of Justice.
Sanders was speaking with Fox News when she slammed the FBI and the DOJ over the missing communications between anti-Trump officials at the bureau, noting that agent Peter Strzok and lawyer Lisa Page were already “at the center of controversy from previously released text messages.”
“I do think there is great cause for concern, it is absolutely outrageous that this number of text messages have gone missing when we already know these two individuals were at the center of controversy from previously released text messages,” said the Press Secretary.
“It’s quite convenient for them, quite inconvenient for the president, to have this type of problem within our top law enforcement agency,” she added.
Earlier this week, the FBI informed congressional investigators that more than five-month’s worth of text messages exchanged between Strzok, Page, and other anti-Trump officials were missing; claiming a technical glitch made the retrieval of the messages impossible.
