Hannity: DOJ has started recovering missing FBI texts, DOJ sources say

FOX-

Fox News’ Sean Hannity said Wednesday night on “Hannity” that the Justice Department has started recovering some of the missing texts between FBI officials Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, citing DOJ sources.

Federal law enforcement officials had notified congressional committees that a technical glitch affected thousands of FBI cellphones between Dec. 14, 2016 and May 17, 2017. This meant that 5 months’ worth of texts would be missing from Strzok and Page, both of whom are under scrutiny after it was revealed that the former members of special counsel Robert Mueller’s team exchanged anti-Trump texts during the 2016 presidential campaign.

Hannity said sources at the DOJ told him they have begun to recover some of the texts from that time period. Specific content from those texts has not been released.

The missing messages have caused problems for the Justice Department inspector general’s office.

Senate Homeland Security Committee Chairman Ron Johnson, R-Wis., and Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, have sent a letter to Inspector General Michael Horowitz noting that the IG’s office said on Dec. 13 that it had all the messages between Strzok and Page between Nov. 30, 2016, and July 28, 2017.

Lawmakers later learned of the five-month gap.

  1. 4 more days of ‘darkness’ and then the shit hits the fan. 😉

    The ‘darkness’ started on 1/19/18. It ends on the 29th, and on the 30th —— BOOM !!!!!!

  2. Hannity. The MMA fighter. The expert marksman. I know small children that could kick this guys ass. I’m not sure he’s doing our side any good.

  3. It seems we’ve been here before. IRS lost lots of emails, etc. due to “crashes”. Hillary lost tens of thousands of emails due to “wiping”. FBI lost thousands of texts due to “glitches”. They throw lame excuses and see if we accept them. The “lost” can be found if they wanted to.

    Exactly. If you are that bad ass you don’t need to promote it constantly. We are a FOX family but we started turning Hannity off several years ago.

  5. My understanding, from what I heard just yesterday, is that no one even knows where the phones are. Maybe they aren’t needed if the texts were stored on a server…

    And yes, Hannity is tiresome. He’s like a hammer that doesn’t stop pounding a nail until there’s nothing left to pound.

  6. Federal law enforcement officials had notified congressional committees that a technical criminal glitch affected thousands of FBI cellphones…

    De-faked it.

  7. Has ANY Republican investigation ever resulted in any real results?

    Bill Clinton got impeached, that was the only one I can think of in 40 years.
