I recently had a “Eureka!” moment while mulling over the Strzok texts. I read that the DOJ feels that it might take weeks to read all 10,000 of the Strzok missives before handing them over to Congress, and I thought to myself, “Why not give them to the FBI?”
As you’ll recall, the FBI vetted the approximately 650,000 emails on Anthony Weiner’s laptop in only eight days! They should be able to go through a mere 10,000 texts in a few hours, with time out for lunch. Problem solved – no need to thank me, it’s what I do.
Granted “texts” are somewhat different than emails, but the digital footprint should be much the same…unless “texts” refers to Strzok and his mistress, Lisa Page, passing each other notes under the desk or something, or exchanging love letters (AKA ant-Trump screeds) via “snail mail.” Whatever – give them to the FBI and I have no doubt that they will run through the “texts” like Sherman through Atlanta.
Not to belabor the obvious, but Strzok was purportedly directly involved with the FBI’s investigation into the contents of Weiner’s laptop. We have the “go to” guy for speed reading emails/texts right at hand — what a stroke of luck!
In any event, once the Strzok texts are out of the way, Congress will be free to tackle the questions that they are really interested in – such as why the FBI apparently found Hillary Clinton innocent of any wrongdoing before questioning her. (I am admittedly no lawyer, but in my layman’s opinion that is NOT how a criminal investigation is supposed to work).
Seems a bit of a shame for Congress to hold the DOJ and FBI in contempt during the Christmas season…but hey, the FBI’s and DOJ’s blatant stonewalling has been nothing if not contemptable, so holding them in contempt seems only apropos.
