There is serious talk now about a second special counsel being appointed to look into the FBI and the Justice Department’s handling of the Russia/Trump probe amid the findings of the previously lost five-month span of texts between FBI officials Peter Strzok and Lisa Page reports PJ Media.

The text messages between Strzok and Page have revealed a number of things so far in Reps. Devin Nunes’ (R-CA), Trey Gowdy’s (R-SC), and Bob Goodlatte’s (R- VA) investigation into the FBI’s investigation.

Now that the representatives have had a chance to examine the texts there was apparently talk of a “secret society” of officials within the FBI that apparently met the day after the election of Donald Trump to plot against the president-elect.

Gowdy, Nunes, and Goodlatte met on Saturday to talk about the messages and the FISA memo that may outline surveillance abuse under the Obama administration. The missing text messages, that were missing between December 2016 and May 2017, were during a critical time during the FBI’s Russia investigation. That alone was suspicious enough to keep asking more questions about the messages.

According to Fox News, Nunes, Gowdy, and Goodlatte are in the process of going through the steps necessary to release the four-page FISA memo and intend to see it released to the public by early February.

The FBI has demanded to see a copy of the memo, but so far — understandably —  the Intelligence Committee has declined to show them their hand. Republicans believe that publishing the memo will but pressure on Attorney General Jeff Sessions to appoint a second special counsel, Fox News reported.

In the latest batch of messages between Strzok and Page, they suggest that Comey was coordinating with Attorney General Lynch on the decision well ahead of his July 5 press conference.

Rep. Ratcliffe said that former FBI director James Comey needs to come back to Capitol Hill to testify again under oath on the question of when the decision to exonerate former secretary of State Hillary Clinton was made.

“It’s really clear to me that the decision was made in May of 2016 — two months before the press conference,” Gowdy said on Fox’s The Story. “Of course Loretta Lynch knew he wasn’t going to be charged. Everyone except the public knew that she was not going to be charged.”

“We knew that Strzok and Page had an intense anti-Trump bias and that’s okay so long as they check it at the door and do their job,” Ratcliffe said. “But we learned today in the thousands of text messages that we reviewed that perhaps they may not have done that.”

Gowdy also talked further about this ‘secret society’ that was set up within the Department of Justice to basically take down President Trump.

“You have this insurance policy in the Spring of 2016 and then the day after the election  … there’s a text exchange between these two FBI agents — these two (supposed to be objective, fact-centric) FBI agents saying, ‘perhaps this is the first meeting of the secret society,'” Gowdy explained. “So of course I’m gonna want to know what ‘secret society’ are you talking about — because you’re supposed to be investigating objectively the person who just won the Electoral College.”

Attorney General Jeff Sessions said in a statement Monday that a review is “already underway to ascertain what occurred and to determine if these records can be recovered in any other way.

Sessions said, “If any wrongdoing were to be found to have caused this gap, appropriate legal disciplinary action measures will be taken.”

“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. If we are successful, we will update the congressional committees immediately,” he added.

    The prince of lies is being exposed and where he makes his daily living. Time to shine some light on this perverted political state. Where are the liberals that don’t like the Government snooping in their lives? The “Just Us” crowd.

  • MSG Leo

    Immediately fire everyone involved with this and bar them for ever working for the government again.

  • Bill Clare

    I know firing is a swift way to inflict pain on these loathsome people. However, I hope the powers that be will indite them, convict them, fire them, sentence them to significant time, and remove all their governmental retirement benefits.

    Lastly, squeeze them so hard that they give up all of the upper tier criminals in the Obama White House.

    In the most charitable reading of the FBI’s treatment of Hillary Clinton’s
    offenses is that “everyone knew” she was going to be the next President
    and if they played hard ball with her it probably would have seriously
    damaged the FBI as an institution dealing with the revenge of a too
    powerful Clinton. This does not explain why they feel so free to damage
    a sitting President who they are under oath to serve. We may never know
    why, but it will always be confounding.

      Look no further than Obama. He was desperate to get Hillary elected to cover up the crimes of his administration. If they can damage Trump and get him ousted from office, they think they will still be safe and their crimes will not be discovered.

        Election night they must have been stunned beyond belief.
        I doubt they thought about their vulnerabilities, but I doubt
        that is the case now as their straw man army of accusations
        against Trump gets blown away revealing only their naked
        treachery.

        Ah yes, election night was a night to remember. I haven’t seen that many people bawl since JFK was assassinated. P.S. I liked JFK.

    Just as bad as the ‘secret society’ is the lack of due diligence in pursuing the news by so many folks . . . and the number of media outlets still claiming to be American news sources.

    If “Lightning Struck” knew there was no big there there. Then, I think it is safe to believe that “Mule-er” knows it, too!

    The “Skull and Bones” has struck against Donald Trump…Who’s next on their list…You?

  • TommyD

    I find it amazing how with such a target rich environment on the left that the “Special Council” spent a year on nothing…
    Simply mind blowing..

  • Paul

    So John Kerry is part of this based on his recent meeting with the PLO . Soros is a person of interest after his most recent statement at Davos. They are emboldened enough to come out and make definitive statements pertaining to the length of President Trumps tenure . This is a little scary.
