Technical glitches, Russian bots… the excuses coming from top Dems are running on empty.
Ever since he read it, Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) has been very vocal about releasing an explosive FISA memo to be the public.
Gaetz continued to play offense when he spoke to Fox News Channel’s Tucker Carlson Wednesday night. Gaetz addressed five months of missing text messages between top FBI officials, and said the memo and the missing text conversations are linked.
“Two things the American people should evaluate when they read this memo.” Gaetz began. “You’ve got to evaluate the memo in the context of the five months of missing text messages between Peter Strzok and his mistress Lisa Page. You can’t evaluate those two things separately. They have to be evaluated together. Second thing — ”
Tucker interupted Gaetz and asked him to clarify why the missing texts and findings in the FISA memo are connected.
“Tucker, I can’t get into the specifics precisely, I can only say that I don’t think it is an accident that Strzok and Page, who were volleying texts back more than a high school cheerleading squad, all of sudden have a five month black hole in the middle of that exchange — right at the exact time, that one would anticipate a conspiracy would be ongoing to undermine the President, ending in the appointment of Robert Mueller, conspicuously, the very day that the Strzok and Page text messages come back online, Gaetz said.
“So, it’s no coincidence.”
A technical glitch is the current excuse for the missing texts. Gaetz, among many others including President Trump, aren’t buying it.
Strzok and Page were reckless in their use of text messages to communicate their bias and whisperings of an anti-Trump “secret society.” Many now believe their casual communications, (which surely they knew as top FBI officials would be ensconced forever somewhere on the internet) were bantered about with the belief that Clinton would win – and all would be fine.
If Trump’s presidential victory sent shock waves through the liberal American citizenry, it likely sent a magnitude 8 earthquake throughout certain sectors of the FBI and DOJ.
The apparent scramble to cover their tracks, is just as damning (if not worse) than the alleged inital dirty deeds.
“The second thing you got to evaluate is the manner in which evidence presented to the court was corroborated,” Gaetz continued. “The problem with lies is they’ve got to keep telling them. You can just tell one lie. You have to use other lies to cooperate your existing lies.
“It is my position that the Mueller probe is intractably infected, that it is built on a rotten foundation, and that it should end immediately so we can focus on the real challenge of reforming the FBI and the Department of Justice.”
Tucker and Gaetz were in agreement that this should not be a partisan issue.
“I haven’t been in Congress for a very long time,” Gaetz said. “But, I don’t think you solve a lot of problems by having members of Congress meet with each other behind closed doors and share their outrage with each other.
“I think we have got to have sunlight, transparency, so we can all have a national debate about what type of government we want to have, what type of surveillance system we want to have, what type of information we will have, before people’s liberty is impaired.”
Top Democrats have so far failed at trying to blame the organic groundswell that is demanding the FISA memo be released on Russian bots. And attempts to keep the missing texts hidden may fail as well, as Judicial Watch recently announced it is suing the DOJ for all text messages between Strozk and Page.
