FBI Agents TRIED to Evade Federal Records Requirements
Again we learn what we already know. Only it was worse than we thought.
Remember those Amazing Grace messages by the FBI: They once were “lost” but now they’re “found”? Well guess what they revealed?
According to The Hill,

It’s the light they shine on what has come to be routine obstruction of public records laws by federal officials.
The records that federal agencies generate while in our employ aren’t owned by faceless bureaucrats or political officials who can choose to withhold or disclose at their discretion and convenience. The records are owned by us: the public.
That includes text messages.
In the past two decades as communications via email, smart phones and social media have grown routine, there’s evidence that federal officials have consciously devised ways to thwart public records laws and keep their communications — our records — secret. Federal officials have used private email accounts, private servers and aliases (not their own name) for public business. They have deleted or lost messages that are supposed to be saved.
Keep in mind what we learned through the FISA memo about how the FBI conspired to keep Trump from being president.
While the Democrats fought tooth and nail to keep the memo private, now they claim the memos reveal nothing.
Understand that disgraced former FBI Director James Comey testified under oath to Congress that the dossier was “salacious and unverified”. Yet, we learned that he certified its veracity to the FISA court prior to that testimony. Comey lied, under oath. Most people call this perjury, but I’m sure Comey has some mystical tweet that justifies what he did.
Some call what Comey qualifies for perjury as well as qualifies as obstruction of justice, and certainly abuse of authority. And that’s just for starters.
Many other FBI agents were complicit in this attempted sabotage of Donald Trump the candidate. Next, they attempted a coup of Donald Trump the president.
Now we learn a new exchange released by the Senate Homeland Security committee today,
FBI officials Lisa Page and Peter Strzok seem to discuss how to evade federal records requirements in private texts.
Page: Have a meeting with turgal about getting iphone in a day or so
Strzok: Oh hot damn. . . We get around our security/monitoring issues?
Page: No, he’s proposing that we just stop following them. Apparently the requirement to capture texts came from [Office of Management and Budget], but we’re the only org (I’m told) who is following that rule. His point is, if no one else is doing it why should we. . . I’m told – thought I have seen – that there is an IG report that says everyone is failing. But one has changed anything, so why not just join in the failure.
But how many other agents did the same thing?
How long will it take for the next series of investigations to begin? It can’t happen soon enough.
I warned that things would be bad for Democrats in 2018. With the release of the FISA memo, Democrats now claim the document is no big deal. Let’s see what they say in a few months. I give over and under at 3.5 for number of new Democrats who have lawyered up within the next 90 days.
