Top Counterintelligence official, Peter Strzok and FBI lawyer Lisa Page exchanged more than 50,000 text messages with each other; many were shown as “anti-Trump” in nature. Now, some lawmakers are demanding more inquiry into these texts, as the two disgraced officials also texted about a “secret society.”
Strzok was deeply involved in both the Hillary Clinton email probe and FBI Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia probe. He and Page were romantically involved with each other and during the 2016 presidential election, they spoke regularly. Just one day after President Trump’s victory, the two disgraced government officials texted about “secret society,” according to two lawmakers with knowledge of the messages.
According to WND, House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy, R-South Carolina, and Representative John Ratcliffe, R-Texas, said Monday that among the messages the pair exchanged are references to a “secret society” within the Department of Justice and the FBI. “We learned today about information that in the immediate aftermath of [Trump’s] election, that there may have been a secret society of folks within the Department of Justice and the FBI — to include Page and Strzok — that would be working against him,” Ratcliffe said Monday on Fox News’ The Story with Martha MacCallum.
“I’m not saying that actually happened, but when folks speak in those terms, they need to come forward to explain the context with which they used those terms,” he added. “There’s a text exchange between these two FBI agents, these two supposed to be objective fact-centric FBI agents, saying that perhaps this is the first meeting of the ‘secret society,’” Gowdy said. “So of course I’m going to want to know what secret society you’re talking about because you’re supposed to be investigating objectively the person who just won the Electoral College; so yeah I’m going to want to know,” he said.
It isn’t the first time the messages have raised questions about what may have been going on at the FBI. In one previously released message, Strzok appeared to make reference to an “insurance policy” against a Trump win.
“I want to believe the path you threw out for consideration in Andy’s office — that there’s no way he gets elected — but I’m afraid we can’t take that risk. It’s like an insurance policy in the unlikely event you die before you’re 40…” Strzok wrote in the text message.
According to the Wall Street Journal, Strzok claims the message was addressing a colleague who felt the FBI could take its time with allegations of Trump/Russia collusion because Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton was thought certain to win. Meanwhile, “Andy” may have been a reference to FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, who is at the center of new tensions with the Trump administration.
Who knows how deep this all goes. Is this secret society a part of the deep state? Or the shadow government? There seem to be even more questions now, than we will ever get answers for, especially considering the mainstream media’s glaringly obvious anti-Trump bias.
