|Peter Strzok Admitted to Obstruction of Justice (Again) in Newly Released Text Messages|
|[Offended America] Newly released text messages between the FBI’s Former Deputy Head of Counterintelligence Peter Strzok and his mistress, FBI Lawyer Lisa Page appear to show an admission of guilt in committing obstruction of justice.|
In August 2016, Page and Strzok discuss starting a new "program" to get around FBI text message archiving protocols. These protocols allow for due process when text messages and other investigative materials are made available to defendants as part of discovery.
The messages were uncovered as part of an inquiry by Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) who heads up the Senate Homeland Security and Government Affairs Committee. Sen. Johnson was thrust into the spotlight of investigations of the FBI and DOJ when he reported that he was in contact with an informant inside of the "Secret Society" referenced in text messages between Peter Strzok and Lisa Page.
Sen. Ron Johnson sent an additional letter to the FBI and Department of Justice requesting additional communications records for senior federal law enforcement and intelligence officials including James Comey, Andrew McCabe, James Rybicki, John Giaclone, James Turgal, Jonathan Moffa and Randy Coleman, among others.
