Mueller Strzok

Breitbart: The Office of the Special Counsel deleted text messages from the iPhone of fired FBI agent Peter Strzok before turning it over to the Department of Justice Office of the Inspector General (OIG), according to a report released by the federal watchdog.

On Thursday, the Justice Department’s inspector general released a report stating thousands of text messages exchanged between Strzok and FBI attorney Lisa Page could not be recovered after Mueller’s team wiped clean the phones it had issued them.

“SCO’s Records Officer told the OIG that as part of the office’s records retention procedure, the officer reviewed Strzok’s DOJ issued iPhone after he returned it to the SCO and determined it contained no substantive text messages,” the watchdog report reads. As Conservative Review national security reporter Jordan Schachtel first discovered, the OIG said Strzok’s cell phone was “reset to factory settings,” deleting all data stored on the device.

The federal watchdog said in the report it found “no discernible patterns” about the content of thousands of messages the FBI was able to recover between Strzok and Page. Both have been part of Mueller’s investigation of possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.

Strzok and Page testified before Congress this summer, and the former FBI agent admitted that he had not turned over all of his communications with Page to the Inspector General from his personal phone, even though their recovered conversations showed the two suggesting they move to apps like iMessage or Gmail. Strzok told outgoing Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA) that it is a “safe assumption” that he sent messages to Page from his personal phone that were similar in nature to the widely-publicized messages attacking Trump supporters. He told House Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-VA) that he himself determined which messages on that phone were “relevant to FBI business” that the Inspector General could review.

At that time of their exchanges, the FBI was investigating whether former secretary of state and then-presidential candidate Hillary Clinton improperly used a private email account while she was Secretary of State. Strzok, a senior counterintelligence agent, was assigned to the case, as was Page. Reports claimed the two were romantically involved during this time. Strzok was ultimately fired after anti-Trump text messages between him and Page were discovered by the special counsel.

Thursday’s report said the FBI used special software to collect more than 20,000 text messages from the pair’s phones, but not all were sent between Strzok and Page. Investigators have already released some of the controversial texts, including a message from Strzok saying he would “stop” President Donald Trump from winning the election.

Missing text messages from the pair’s iPhones, though, continue to elude the FBI.

Early this year, the Office of the Inspector General contacted Verizon Wireless to determine if the carrier retains old text messages. Verizon said messages are retained for up to seven days after they are sent, and then erased. The missing messages in question were much older than a week by that time and Verizon no longer had them.

  1. If this isn’t OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE, then what the hell is?!?!?! Hopefully the interim or new AG will bring it down on Mueller! Btw – his name is pronounced “Mule err” not “Mull err”………

  2. The corruption we are seeing go, at least so far, totally unanswered while seemingly non criminal behavior gets punished is becoming untenable. I firmly believe that the (un)justice system will never correct the out of control swamp. So far the swamp has been added to and it doesn’t look like there will be any draining. Since only another civil war seems to be able to fix this, I think it will now be way of life until the country becomes a full totalitarian state.

  3. Hard to believe that Democrats go to Church.

    AND THEY THOUGHT POTUS COMMITTED OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE? What Mueller did to Flynn in my book makes him a DIRTY COP. I also think that this case of Manafort’s is illegal too. The Special Counsel mandate was to look into Russian collusion and he could go for other things he found in the course of the INVESTIGATION. My problem with this Manafort case is that he DID NOT come across this in the course of his INVESTIGATION, he KNEW it was an old case and went to the archives & got it from there. If I remember correctly this was a case from about 2006 & when it came time to prosecute it, the prosecuter chose NOT to prosecute it. In case anyone cares, the prosecuter at that time was none other than ROD ROSENSTEIN.

  6. between OLD HILLARY BEAST DESTROYING SUBPOENAED EMAILS, NOW MUELLER AND HIS GANG OF THUGS DOING THE SAME.
    WHEN ARE ANY OF THESE CRIMINALS AND TRAITORS EVER GOING TO FACE JUSTICE?
    i feel it will have to come from the HANDS OF WE THE PEOPLE.

    I do believe there is a so called gov agency that has the only job to record all these messages that are sent….again thats all messages sent. So how about them pulling them and giving them to the IG. Seems like there are still a heck of a lot of swamp creatures lurking in the ….fbi/doj and just about any other fed agency you can name. 🙁
