FBI text messages lost because of ‘misconfiguration issues’

January 24, 2018

The FBI may have ignored its own data storage procedures as it lost five months of text messages between two anti-Trump FBI employees, security analysts said.

Texts that have been made public, which show the two employees and reported lovers talking about their antipathy toward the president and efforts to impeach him, have become a major embarrassment for an FBI already reeling from accusations of bias and bungling.

But the Justice Department said it lost five months of texts from FBI agent Peter Strzok during a key period when he and FBI lawyer Lisa Page were venting about Mr. Trump and investigations surrounding the 2016 presidential election.

Mr. Trump on Tuesday called the missing messages “one of the biggest stories in a long time,” and the White House said reporters should treat the lost texts with the “same obsession” they have approached suspicions of collusion between Russia and the presidential campaign.

The FBI couple exchanged more than 50,000 texts from July 1, 2015, to July 28, 2017.

The FBI was expected to provide Congress with a new batch of texts that the couple exchanged from Dec. 14, 2016, to May 17, 2017. But the agency told lawmakers over the weekend that “misconfiguration issues” caused a loss of the

    FBI lies again!

    Drain the swamp Trump! It has been a year.

    I know it is hard, AG Sessions is missing. His picture is on milk cartons now.

    Another Special Counsel is long overdue to examine everyone who’s been at at the top tier of the FBI, DOJ, and IRS for the past nine years and then find out if their corrupt practices were directed from the West Wing or the Oval Office. The rat holes of justice need to be purged of political operatives and Constitutional subversives.

    And might I suggest general population locations in maximum security prisons for all convicted justice department employees… no white glove treatment whatsoever forever.

    This was NOT a “technical glitch”. This is a deliberate act of espionage on the part of the FBI leadership and the remaining Deep State staff members. Once the Strzok / Page emails were uncovered the public has been flooding the email boxes and phone banks with the appropriate reaction from a public that has had “ENOUGH”. Now that the FBI and it’s continuing connection to Mueller/Comey is being seen something had to be done to protect Mueller and his absolutely phony investigation…… so evidence had to be destroyed. But, they better hope someone much more intelligent and capable of doing the kind of IT forensic discovery necessary to find that information isn’t just waiting for a call from the White House. The BS needs to be stopped and ALL parties not just fired but prosecuted for “TREASON”.

    The FBI didn’t lose 50,000 emails…they are “hiding” them from further scrutiny in their efforts to conceal that there was indeed an internal FBI plot to eliminate this president from carrying out his duties as POTUS.

    How “convenient” it is to “lose” information on a computer and call it a “glitch” when there is information on it that there has been breaking of laws to be seen for all. It is time to pay the piper for these deep state people. You must hold the Director of the FBI responsible for allowing this to happen. After all, it was “on his watch” it all happened. We need the people responsible for these “events” to be held accountable in a court of law or at least, for once, by Congress, if they could ever do anything for the people of this country other than for “their party”!

    Have you noticed how well IT worked during the Obama Administration? Thousands of e-mails “lost” at IRS about how Obama weaponised that agency against his “enemies”. Thousands of e-mails “lost” at State Department. Now, thousands of text messages “missing” that showed collusion between FBI and justice Department lovers against the President. How about getting the “Geek Squad” to look over their servers. They help non-Government agencies retrieve “lost” e-mails all the time.

      Forgot to mention the IT “specialists” hired by Debbie Wasserman-Schultz for her Congressional office and the DNC. The brothers hired are now accused of various cyber crimes and theft. They must have gotten their training in the same place as the other IT professionals.
