Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton dropped a bit of a bombshell on Saturday when he said the FBI may have also lost Deputy Director Andrew McCabe’s text messages.
Appearing on Fox News’ “Justice with Judge Jeanine,” Fitton told host Jeanine Pirro there is “gamesmanship going on” at the bureau and that Attorney General Jeff Sessions should send the US Marshals over to secure the evidence.
“We sued back in September for the text messages of the number two at the FBI, Andrew McCabe,” Fitton explained. “And they just told us this week, they gave us everything they’re going to give us, and not one text message was turned over.”
“Have they lost all of Andrew McCabe’s text messages?” he asked. “I don’t believe it. There’s still gamesmanship going on.”
The assertion comes amid reports of lost texts between FBI officials Peter Strzok and Lisa Page that may not have been lost after all. Of the messages that they did preserve, the lovers mentioned McCabe in an exchange about an “insurance policy” in the event Donald Trump was elected president.
Text-from Peter Strzok to Lisa Page (Andy is Andrew McCabe): "I want to believe the path u threw out 4 consideration in Andy's office-that there's no way he gets elected-but I'm afraid we can't take that risk.It's like an insurance policy in unlikely event u die be4 you're 40"

McCabe headed up the Clinton private email server investigation that resulted in no charges being filed.
“Were are Andrew McCabe’s text messages,” Fitton asked. “Where are [former FBI director] James Comey’s text messages?”
Sessions vowed to “leave no stone unturned” in finding out how the bureau “lost” five months of text messages between Strzok and Page.

Pirro reminded viewers that Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe, a longtime Clinton ally, steered over half a million dollars in campaign donations to McCabe’s wife in 2015 when she was running for a state Senate seat in Virginia.
