Strzok-Page Texts Mention Meeting of "Secret Society," The Day After Trump's Election

This doesn't sound suspicious at all.

I'm sure noted RUSSIAN BOT expert Allahpundit will later note that this story is being spread by RUSSIAN BOTS.


House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy told Fox News on Monday that one of the newly-revealed text messages spoke of a "secret society."

"The day after the election, the day after what they really, really didn't want to have happen, there's a text exchange between [Strzok and Page] ... saying, 'Perhaps this is the first meeting of the secret society,'" Gowdy said. "So, of course I'm going to want to know: What 'secret society' are you talking about?"

Deb Heine reports that Congressmen want a second special prosecutor to investigate this.

There is serious talk on Capitol Hill about the appointment of a second special counsel amid several new bombshell revelations swirling around the Trump/Russia probe.

First, there are the allegations of shocking and substantial government surveillance abuses under President Obama outlined in the FISA abuse memo.

Secondly, the FBI lost five months of key text messages between the anti-Trump/pro-Clinton FBI officials Peter Strzok and his mistress Lisa Page. And now there's talk of a "secret society" of officials within the FBI that apparently met the day after the election of Donald J. Trump to plot against the president-elect.



@RepRatcliffe
The thousands of texts @TGowdySC and I reviewed today revealed manifest bias among top FBI officials against @realDonaldTrump. The texts between Strzok and Page referenced a "secret society."

Top Republicans now believe there may be real grounds for a second special counsel, Fox News reported Monday evening.
