The Department of Justice is keeping the vast majority of text messages between Peter Strzok and Lisa Page from Congress.
Byron York from The Washington Examiner explains:
The Justice Department has given Congress less than 15 percent of the texts between FBI officials Peter Strzok and Lisa Page – and that is all Congress is likely to get, at least until department experts finish an effort to recover an unknown number of previously lost texts that were sent and received during a key five-month period during the Trump-Russia investigation.
According to York, Congress has about 7,000 out of 50,000 text messages.
That number does not include messages sent between the two from other devices.
What could the DOJ be hiding?
The DOJ also doesn’t want the House Committee memo on FISA abuse by the FBI released either.
The good news is President Trump wants the FISA memo released to the public.
President Donald Trump told top aides on Wednesday to release the House Intelligence Committee’s memo alleging Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) abuses by the FBI — putting him at odds with the Justice Department, The Washington Post reported Saturday.
President Trump “is inclined to have that released just because it will shed light,” a senior administration official told the Post.
