What do you know? The dog that ate the FBI’s homework coughed it up! Just days after the FBI claimed it couldn’t turn over text messages between rabidly anti-Trump paramours Peter Strzok and Lisa Page due to a “tech glitch” that had eaten all the records, they’ve already been recovered.
Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz sent a letter to congressional committees Thursday stating that the DOJ has already “succeeded in using forensic tools to recover text messages from FBI devices, including text messages between Mr. Strzok and Ms. Page that were sent or received between December 14, 2016, and May 17, 2017” (that suspiciously convenient time span that ran from just after Trump’s win to exactly one day before Robert Mueller was appointed).
I’m guessing the foremost “forensic tool” utilized in the hunt was that of “actually looking.”
