While appearing in a radio interview on Tuesday with WISN-Milwaukee host Jay Weber, Wisconsin Sen. Ron Johnson, the Republican chairman of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, read aloud a May 19, 2017 text that Peter Strzok sent to Lisa Page, an FBI lawyer and his mistress in which he admitted there’s “no big there, there” in the Trump-Russia probe.
“You and I both know the odds are nothing. If I thought it was likely, I’d be there no question. I hesitate in part because of my gut sense and concern that there’s no big there there,” the text message, reportedly sent on May 19, 2017, read.
“I think that’s kind of jaw-dropping,” Johnson said.
“In other words, Peter Strzok, who was the FBI deputy assistant director of the counterintelligence division, the man who had a plan to do something because he just couldn’t abide Donald Trump being president, is saying that his gut sense is that there’s no big there there when it comes to the Mueller special counsel investigation,” he added.
According to the Daily Caller, the message “was included in 400 pages of text messages exchanged between Strzok and Page.” Lawmakers, Chuck Ross said, have started reviewing the documents for evidence of anti-Trump and pro-Clinton bias.
Johnson also addressed the revelation last Friday that the FBI “failed to preserve” five months worth of text messages exchanged between Strzok and Page. A Justice Department official told Johnson’s committee and five other congressional panels that a “misconfiguration” issue caused “many” FBI-issued mobile devices to not back up to the bureau’s servers.
The FBI said it does not have text messages for Strzok and Page for the period between Dec. 14, 2016 and May 17, 2017 — the day that Mueller was appointed.
Johnson said that Congress needs to see the missing text messages because Strzok and Page were “completely unguarded in their communication.”
“So we’re getting insight into exactly what is happening inside the FBI at the highest levels. And who knows who else they might implicate in terms of corruption,”Johnson further said.
The text would seem to validate what many have said — that there’s absolutely no evidence that neither Donald Trump nor his campaign colluded with the Russian government.
Nevertheless, Democrats like Maxine Waters, D-Calif., and their mainstream media masters have spent more than a year pushing the Trump-Russia conspiracy theory in what can only be seen as an obvious effort to remove the president from power — something that could have disastrous consequences, as many have pointed out.
