GOP lawmakers are raising concerns over a private text exchange between two FBI agents mentioning a “secret society” immediately after Trump won the U.S. presidency.
House Oversight Committee Chairman Rep. Trey Gowdy and other Republicans believe that the text messages between former FBI agent Peter Strzok and attorney Lisa Page, who also works for the bureau, are proof that the federal investigation into the Trump-Russia collusion is biased against the President.
Gowdy also thinks that the bias enabled Hillary Clinton to be cleared of any allegations regarding her mishandling of State Department e-mails when using a private server for communication.
Agent Strzok who mocked Trump repeatedly in the conversations with Page was involved in both FBI investigations.
Gowdy told Fox News that the two agents, who were supposed to be “fact-centric,” texted that ‘Perhaps this is the first meeting of the secret society’ the day after Trump’s win.
The Republican now wants to know what type of society they were talking about because their job is to investigate “objectively” the guy that had just secured the Electoral College vote.
FBI, DOJ May Be Biased against Trump
Gowdy also expressed concern over the “insurance policy” the two agents mentioned in their conversations during the spring of 2016.
Mueller dismissed the two operatives from the Russia investigation team shortly after media reports about their controversial text messages surfaced. However, GOP lawmakers are convinced that the two agents’ conversations are just the tip of the iceberg, and the FBI may have run a strong bias against Trump.
Republican Representative John Ratcliffe also thinks that a “secret society” may now be instructing the FBI on how to conduct its investigations. This means that top government officials have rallied against Trump. Ratcliffe thinks that the society influences not only the FBI, but the entire Department of Justice as well.
