Trump is in big trouble, and what’s more, he knows it. Like a cornered rat, he is hissing and lashing out as his presidency stands to be exposed for the many questionable and, in some cases, illegal acts involving his campaign’s contacts with Russia, illegal hush money payments to his mistresses, possible misappropriation of funds from his inauguration funds, violations of the emoluments clause, and possible legal issues involving his “charity” organization.
To deflect from the very real issues surrounding his, his family’s, and his associates’ alleged illegal acts, Trump is so desperate that he began lashing out on Twitter about a “scandal” that has already been put to rest. The Office of the Inspector General has already released a report that made two important points. First, the missing text messages were not maliciously deleted. Second, and most importantly, the 9,311 missing text messages from FBI agent Peter Strzok’s phone have been recovered, as have the 10,760 missing text messages from Lisa Page’s phone.
If those text messages can “explain” the investigation into the alleged collusion between the 2016 Trump presidential campaign and Russian government operatives, the FBI, the OIG, and Mueller’s team of prosecutors already have them and will use them to do so. However, none of the recovered texts were found to contain any information relevant to the investigation. The ones that were relevant were already reported more than a year ago.
Twitter was quick to smack down these new fabricated claims. Read some of their comments below:
