President Donald Trump reacted Tuesday night to news that the FBI blamed phone supplier Samsung for the loss of thousands of messages exchanged between FBI agents Lisa Page and Peter Strzok. "Where are the 50,000 important text messages between FBI lovers Lisa Page and Peter Strzok? Blaming Samsung!," the president tweeted. Earlier Tuesday, a pair of Republican senators pressed the Justice Department's watchdog to explain why he did not inform them last month that the FBI "failed to preserve" five months of text messages between Strzok and Page. It was one of two significant developments late Tuesday involving the texts, as Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., revealed more to Fox News about the pair's messages the day after Trump's victory that spoke of a "secret society." An informant had told lawmakers that a group of FBI officials "were holding secret meetings off-site," Johnson, the Senate Homeland Security Committee chairman, said on "Special Report." He declined to elaborate on what he had learned, saying that lawmakers "have to dig into it."
Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH), member of the House Freedom Caucus, joined the Todd Starnes Show today to discuss how the excuses being made for the missing text messages sound just like "the dog ate my homework" excuse. Rep. Jordan is also calling on a new special counsel to investigate the FBI's handling of the Clinton probe and whether the investigation into allegations that Trump's campaign officials had improper contacts with Russia was politically motivated. When asked what it's going to take to clean house, Rep. Jordan said, "I don't like special counsels but I don't know any other way to hold people accountable who sure look like they did bad things."
