The disappearance of five months’ worth text messages between two FBI staffers tied to the Clinton probe shows the agency has a few rotten apples that spoil the trust of the American people, talk show host Bryan Crabtree says.
The FBI lost crucial text messages sent by its employees which could have shed light on some of the anti-Donald Trump bias within the agency, particularly over the so-called Trump-Russia investigation.
US Attorney General Jeff Sessions has already said the Justice Department is looking into why the FBI’s technical system failed to preserve texts that were exchanged between former top FBI counterintelligence expert Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, an agency attorney, from mid-December 2016 to mid-May 2017.
“The FBI has informed us that many FBI-provided Samsung 5 mobile devices did not capture or store text messages due to misconfiguration issues related to rollouts, provisioning and software upgrades that conflicted with the FBI’s collection capabilities,” Assistant Attorney General Stephen Boyd explained.
The explanation coming from the FBI that somehow they had problems with Samsung 5 phones isn’t believable, Bryan Crabtree told RT.
