#1 The Ole' Lois Lerner trick.

#2 He said that texts are missing for the period between Dec. 14, 2016 and May 17, 2017."

A truly amazing coincidence.

#3 He said that texts are missing for the period between Dec. 14, 2016 and May 17, 2017."

...That's technically accurate - if they don't exist any more, they are in fact 'missing'.

#4 And to think, the Dems went nuts over Nixon's Rosemary Woods losing some fifteen minutes of tape.

#5 Dunno.

See paragraph #1 HERE which specifically acknowledges receipt of the "missing" emails by Michael E. Horowitz of the IG office:

"Following our review of those text messages, the OIG expanded our request to the FBI to include all text messages between Strzok and Page from November 30, 2016, through the date of the document request, which was July 28, 2017. The OIG received these additional messages on August 10, 2017."

#6 I thought NSA had copies of all of that stuff.

It would take the combined efforts of several agencies to completely "lose" a bunch of text messages sent back and forth across official use cellphones.

Those text messages must be dynamite for the FBI and others to delete them, I wonder when they were deleted? Probably about the time the last batch was discovered.

#7 Worked for IRS. No demands for firings despite Trey's legal rants. Consequences of bark and no bite.

Blame the Republicans. Me thinks having a spine might help. Or at least bring white flags into the committees and stop wasting our times.

#8 Remember how they flipped out when Nixon lost 18 minutes worth of tape?

#9 He said that the dog ate the messages for the period between Dec. 14, 2016 and May 17, 2017

Let me guess: the dog also ate the backup tapes.
Hey, let's ask the Russians if they have copies.

#10 What other people did they lose texts for?

Is this common or a Seth Rich event?

#11 No way the text messages are lost if they have the cell phones.

The text messages are on the phones if they have them. If the phones have been disposed of, then there is a real cover up.

#12 Over at PJ Media, Stephen Greene writes: "The FBI didn't come up with a lame excuse because that's all they could come up with. They came up with a lame excuse because they think that's all they need."

This is the crux of the matter. Who is going to call them on it? Sure, there will be lots of huffing and puffing and outrage, but I'm betting the answer is no one.

#13 I don't believe this for one second. There ought to be a law against offering up such crap to the public.

#15 Congress should pass a bill to change the FBI building name from J Eager Hoover to Samuel Richard ‘Sandy’ Berger.
