Newly released text messages between Peter Strzok and Lisa Page reveals they were working a “Media Leak Strategy” ahead of applying for the FISA warrant against Carter Page. Just recently an FBI agent told a reporter about how they would leak a story to the press and then use that story to get a warrant. The FBI immediately came out and denied they do that kind of thing. But here it is, right in the text messages.
On Monday, Freedom Caucus Chairman and member of the House Oversight Committee Mark Meadows (R-NC) sent a letter to the DOJ, addressed to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein saying a “review of the new documents raises grave concerns regarding an apparent systemic culture of media leaking by high-ranking officials at the FBI and DOJ related to ongoing investigations,” reported Sara Carter.
Rep. Mark Meadows believes April 2017 text messages from Peter Strzok to Lisa Page may be connected to a story the Washington Post broke at almost the exact same time (April 11th) about Carter Page FISA warrants.
Sara Carter reported:
The letter lists several examples:
- April 10, 2017: (former FBI Special Agent) Peter Strzok contacts (former FBI Attorney) Lisa Page to discuss a “media leak strategy.” Specifically, the text says: “I had literally just gone to find this phone to tell you I want to talk to you about media leak strategy with DOJ before you go.”
- April 12, 2017: Peter Strzok congratulates Lisa Page on a job well done while referring to two derogatory articles about Carter Page. In the text, Strzok warns Page two articles are coming out, one which is “worse” than the other about Lisa’s “namesake”.” Strzok added: “Well done, Page.”
These texts also reveal the vulnerability of Rod Rosenstein in this plot. This is why he has refused to turn over documents.
He is up to his eyeballs in this criminal behavior.
The president is rumored to be getting to declassify documents. This could be all for Rosenstein.
