Ben Rhodes Hits the “PANIC BUTTON” After Trump Lights Up FBI “Lovers” Peter Strzok & Lisa Page Over “Missing” Texts
Former Deputy National Security Advisor Ben Rhodes took umbrage Tuesday evening with President Trump’s tweet about the “missing,” 50,000 text messages between FBI “lovers” Peter Strzok and Lisa Page.
“Where are the 50,000 important text messages between FBI lovers Lisa Page and Peter Strzok? Blaming Samsung!” tweeted President Trump.

Rhodes chimed in, “The President is a conspiracy theorist against the highest law enforcement agency in the country and is eviscerating institutional norms. Remember that the next time you hear hot air from GOP about how much they support law enforcement and honor traditional values.”

Former NYPD officer and current RebelTV host John Cardillo noted Rhodes seems “nervous.”
“Tick tock,” added Cardillo.
.@brhodes, you seem nervous considering what’s about to be exposed.
Why do you seem so nervous?

Could the former top Obama official be getting antsy concerning the imminent bombshells set to be exposed in FISA abuse memo? Last August, Sara A. Carter reported Rhodes was a “person of interest” in the House Intelligence Committee’s unmasking investigation. Carter revealed Monday that the number of unmasking requests exploded during the time frame of the missing Strzok-Page text messages.

“You know what’s even more concerning to me Sean, is the fact that during those months of those missing text messages — remember the unmasking?”
“That is when we discovered — I remember John Solomon and I wrote these stories about the unmasking — that’s when it sped up.”
“That’s when the unmasking went into high gear,” revealed Carter.
“We have Samantha Power with 300 unmaskings, although she’s denying that she signed off on those unmaskings.”
“We have Susan Rice, we have others within the Obama administration that have signed off,”
Hannity then asked Carter, “Do we know if Ben Rhodes did it?”
“We suspect Ben Rhodes was involved in it,” Carter replied.
Former Obama administration officials are the subject of intense scrutiny in relation to Congress’ investigation into ‘unmasking’ allegations. According to the Washington Free Beacon, former United Nations Ambassador Samantha Power ‘unmasked’ hundreds during her final year as an Obama administration official.
