CONGRESSMAN SAYS THEY “RAISE EVEN MORE CONCERNS”
by Sharon Rondeau
(Sep. 12, 2018) — Just before 8:30 p.m. EDT, Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC11), who has been outspoken about what he believes is wrongdoing on the part of former FBI employees Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, tweeted that more of their text messages will be released and discussed on Wednesday’s “Hannity” at 9:00 p.m. EDT.
Meadows is a member of the House Judiciary Committee, which has been investigating the origins of the Trump-Russia “collusion” investigation launched by the FBI in 2016.
“New Strzok texts out tonight, raising even more concerns about potential media leaks at the FBI,” Meadows wrote and that he and Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH4) will be Hannity’s guests during the 9:20 p.m. segment..
No actionable “intelligence” has yet been identified as justifying such a probe, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes has said.
Investigative journalist Sara A. Carter has regularly reported on the text messages which Meadows and perhaps other members of Congress have been releasing after obtaining them from the FBI and DOJ after many months of requests and subpoenas.
Strzok was deputy assistant director of the counterintelligence unit at the FBI until he was fired a month ago. Page, at one time his paramour, resigned as FBI counsel in early May.
Both have testified to members of Congress: Page on July 13 and 16 in private and Strzok on July 12 publicly. Their text messages appear to show plans to thwart the election of Donald Trump or his presidency if he were to be elected.
Recent texts appear to show coordination in leaking information to the mainstream media in an attempt to color the Trump campaign negatively in April of last year.
Strzok’s attorney stated that rather than coordinating and issuing leaks to the media themselves, the text messages indicated that they were working on a strategy to contain any FBI leaks.
