Jeff Sessions announced an inquiry into what happened to five months of missing FBI texts.
It is good news that the Trump Administration is refusing to pretend that it is reasonable to believe the missing FBI texts were lost by accident. They must know that voters remember how the Obama Administration stonewalled on Fast and Furious and didn’t help Republicans investigate Lois Lerner and the IRS. The people voted for change and this is an important part of that change.
The Daily Caller reports, “Sessions Orders Investigation of Missing Strzok-Page Texts.”
The Justice Department will investigate the FBI’s failure to produce text messages traded between two senior investigators leading the Russia probe who harbored deep antipathy for President Donald Trump.[…]
“I have spoken to the inspector general and a review is already underway to ascertain what occurred and to determine if these records can be recovered in any other way,” the attorney general said in a statement. “If any wrongdoing were to be found to have caused this gap, appropriate legal disciplinary action measures will be taken.”
“We will leave no stone unturned to confirm with certainty why these text messages are not now available to be produced and will use every technology available to determine whether the missing messages are recoverable from another source,” he added. “If we are successful, we will update the congressional committees immediately.”
