ABC Claims FBI Secret Society Just A “Joke”, Joe Scarborough Attacks Concerned Republicans
Among the more than 50,000 text messages exchanged between two FBI officials were references to a “secret society” of officials working to undermine Donald Trump.
Rep. Ratcliffe and Trey Gowdy spoke with Fox News after the news broke about the 50,000 new text messages, which does not include the recently unearthed “missing” text messages:
“What we learned today in the thousands of text messages that we’ve reviewed that perhaps they may not have done that (checked their bias at the door). There’s certainly a factual basis to question whether or not they acted on that bias. We know about this insurance policy that was referenced in trying to prevent Donald Trump from becoming president.”
“We learned today from information that in the immediate aftermath of his election that there may have been a ‘secret society’ of folks within the Department of Justice and the FBI to include Page and Strzok to be working against him.”
Now, ABC News’ propaganda outfit is fast at work claiming that the “secret society” references were merely a “joke” and should not be taken seriously by the public. Umm… what?
In a recently published piece, “The full ‘secret society’ text between FBI agents: Was it meant in jest?” ABC claims to print the full-text message:
“Are you even going to give out your calendars? Seems kind of depressing. Maybe it should just be the first meeting of the secret society,” FBI lawyer Lisa Page wrote to senior FBI agent Peter Strzok, who was working on the FBI’s probe of Russian meddling in the presidential election and would later join Page for a brief period on Special Counsel Robert Mueller‘s team.
In continued MSM efforts to downplay and spin this story, MSNBC host Joe Scarborough chimed in to attack Republicans who are concerned about bias and anti-Trump collusion within the FBI. Via NewsWars:
“When these conspiracy theories are spread for political reasons and solely political reasons to protect the president who is not worth your protection with your lies, you are only making it more difficult for our law enforcement officers to protect your family and mine against Islamic terrorism and homegrown terrorism that you supposedly fear so much,” Scarborough said on Thursday’s episode of “Morning Joe.”
He called on Republicans to “get out of their way” and let the special counsel’s investigation play out, laughably suggesting he would be the first to call out Robert Mueller if he overreaches.
“So just stop it. Get out of their way. Let them do their jobs and let the chips fall where they may. If Mueller overreaches, we will be the first to say so. The press will be the first to say so. Just stop with your conspiracy theories because you are making America less safe,” he added.
