President Donald Trump puts the blame on Samsung for missing the texts between FBI lawyer Lisa Page and FBI agent Peter Strzok, which according to the president is “one of the biggest stories in a long time.”
Trump mocked the FBI saying, “In one of the biggest stories in a long time, the FBI says it is now missing five months’ worth of lovers Strzok – Page texts, perhaps 50,000, all in prime time. Wow!”
The Federal Bureau of Investigation employees were notably voicing against the president over text messages, which would have been a “Treasonous act” according to Trump. He is blaming Samsung for being a part of the scandal and supporting the FBI staffers by losing the messages. Trump Tweeted “Where are the 50,000 important text messages between FBI lovers Lisa Page and Peter Strzok? Blaming Samsung,”
Assistant Attorney General Stephen Boyd informed the Congress that the Samsung model used by the FBI staffers (Samsung 5) wasn’t able to “Capture or store text messages due to misconfiguration issues related to rollouts, provisioning and software upgrades that conflicted with the FBI’s collection capabilities,”
The Republicans are voicing their opinion against the deletion of text messages and calling it an act of treason and demand a justification.
Strzok, on the other hand, commented, “You and I both know the odds are nothing. If I thought it was likely, I’d be there no question. I hesitate in part because of my gut sense and concern there’s no big there there,”
President Trump also commented on the latest government shutdown that lasted two days, saying, “Even Crazy Jim Acosta of Fake News CNN agrees: ‘Trump World and WH sources dancing in end zone: Trump wins again…Schumer and Dems caved…gambled and lost.’ Thank you for your honesty Jim!” he posted.
According to the Republicans, some of the texts contained foul language against the president, calling him “’loathsome human” and an “Idiot.” This also leads to the fact that FBI may be in favor of Hillary Clinton, the opposition party and may have given her a favorable treatment during her email investigation case.
In a statement with the press, the Sessions said ‘We will leave no stone unturned to confirm with certainty why these text messages are not now available to be produced and will use every technology available to determine whether the missing messages are recoverable from another source.’
