(National Sentinel) Cover-up: Last week the Justice Department’s Inspector General released a comprehensive report noting, in part, that all of the data from fired FBI agent Peter Strzok’s iPhone had been scrubbed by special counsel Robert Mueller’s office after he was dismissed from the “Russian collusion” probe.

In addition, the IG report noted, his paramour Lisa Page’s iPhone had also been scrubbed but by a different department, the DOJ’s Justice Management Division.

The loss of data left a huge time gap that was considered suspicious by congressional investigators looking into the FBI’s handling of the Hillary Clinton email investigation as well as the bureau’s involvement in attempts to undermine the incoming Trump administration.



Now, however, the gap has been filled. The DoJ’s inspector general found some 19,000 texts from their Galaxy S5 phones spanning the gap between December 15, 2016, and May 17, 2017.

The IG’s report notes:

OIG digital forensic examiners used forensic tools to recover thousands of text messages from these devices, including many outside the period of collection tool failure (December 15, 20 I 6 to May 17, 2017) and many that Strzok and Page had with persons other than each other. Approximately 9,311 text messages that were sent or received during the period of collection tool failure were recovered from Strzok’s S5 phone, of which approximately 8,358 were sent to or received from Page. 

Approximately 10,760 text messages that were sent or received during the period of collection tool failure were recovered from Page’s S5 phone, of which approximately 9,717 were sent to or received from Strzok. Thus, many of the text messages recovered from Strzok’s S5 were also recovered from Page’s S5. However, some of the Strzok-Page text messages were only recovered from Strzok’s phone while others were only recovered from Page’s phone. 

The discovery did not escape the attention of POTUS Donald Trump, whose administration was subjected to being undermined by James Comey’s FBI and Barack Obama’s intelligence community.

In the coming days hopefully, the country will learn much more about the two Trump-hating former FBI officials.

What’s really disturbing, however, is how these two managed to rise through the ranks of the FBI with such obvious disdain for the will of the American people.
