(National Sentinel)Â NOversight:Â Presidential attorney Jay Sekulow on Friday discussed newly-released texts between FBI officials Peter Strzok and his mistress Lisa Page, saying the two knew they were stonewalling lawmakers regarding the Hillary Clinton email investigation.
Discussing the tests on his radio program, “Jay Live,” Sekulow also said the texts revealed that the two understood the hidden FBI reports would eventually be revealed in Freedom of Information Act requests and “absolutely inflame Congress.”
The two anti-Trump officials admitted to hiding “302 reports” — which are summaries of interviews conducted with witnesses and/or suspects — from lawmakers regarding Clinton’s criminal mishandling of classified emails.
Also, both then complained that FOIA requests from interested parties would eventually cause the hidden reports to be released, thus created widespread angst and condemnation in Congress.
â€œPeter Strzok on September 10th, 2016â€“this is during the heart of the election last year,â€ Sekulow began.
Quoting Strzok, Sekulow said, “‘Thing is, there are very inflammatory things in the 302â€™sâ€™ [thatâ€™s the agentsâ€™ reports] that we didnâ€™t turn over to Congress because they werenâ€™t relevant to understanding the focus of the investigation.'”
â€œThis was the investigation of Hillary Clinton-the ongoing email investigation,â€ Sekulow said, putting the conversation in context.
Again quoting Stzrok, Sekulow noted further, â€˜These are going to come out in FOIAâ€™s and absolutely inflame Congressâ€¦â€™
â€œIn other words, once the FOIA requests come in and they are responded to, itâ€™s going to create a firestorm,” the president’s counsel said.
Critics noted that as bad as that is, only a fraction of the total number of texts sent between Strzok and Page during a crucial five-month period have been released to Congress.
