As Foretold by True Pundit, Grassley Confirms Anti-Trump FBI Agents Used ‘Private Devices’ to Communicate (Burner Phones)

FBI agents using burner phones, revealed five days ago in True Pundit
FBI agents using Google Gmail to transmit classified Intel on criminal investigation of Hillary Clinton, revealed yesterday in True Pundit.

On Friday, Sen. Grassley confirmed the FBI reporting and said expect more to be divulged.

FBI officials Peter Strzok and Lisa Page may have used personal accounts to send official records to each other about the Hillary Clinton email probe in 2016 even as the bureau investigated her for a “similar” practice, according to Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley.

“It appears that Strzok and Page transmitted federal records pertaining to the Clinton investigation on private, non-government services,” the Iowa Republican wrote in a Thursday letter to FBI Director Chris Wray.

He questioned whether that affected the bureau’s treatment of the Clinton case.
“It is important to determine whether their own similar conduct was a factor in not focusing on and developing evidence of similar violations by Secretary Clinton and her aides,” Grassley said.

During the campaign, the FBI investigated Clinton’s use of a private email server instead of a secure, government email account while secretary of state. Then-FBI Director James Comey decided against recommending prosecution, but faulted Clinton and her associates for being “extremely careless” with classified information.

Grassley wrote in his letter to Wray that Strzok and Page, in some texts, also referred to “related conversations they were having via iMessage, presumably on their personal Apple devices.”

Members of the FBI and Justice Department’s top brass at their Washington D.C.headquarters and other field offices are now using burner phones to stay under the radar of federal investigators and lawmakers, according to FBI insiders.

The shocking revelations come on the heels of news that the FBI deleted thousands of text messages between anti-Trump FBI agents before investigators could review their content.

While that is disturbing on one level, FBI and DOJ hierarchy employing the telecom habits of drug cartel bosses reaches a new low for the once-heralded federal law enforcement agency and the DOJ. And breaks federal laws as well.
Intel points to top FBI and DOJ officials communicating via:
  • Burner or disposable smart phones purchased with cash and charged with cash or money order
  • Encrypted phone and web apps, including SIGNAL employed for anonymous texting
  • Phones issued in the name of a spouse or family member, conceivably out of reach of federal subpoenas
Use of such telecom devices as part of official government business violates a host of federal laws, insiders said.

But that hasn’t slowed their use by top law enforcement personnel in the United States.

With many key personnel in the FBI currently under the microscope of the Inspector General — for potential criminal violations — top FBI and DOJ officials are communicating on disposable phones via text, voice and internet access to encrypted texting apps, FBI insiders confirm.

“The IG is aware of this,” one FBI insider said. “They have been up on these guys for a long time.”

The FBI source’s comments reflect the fact that the Inspector General has had court-approved wiretaps running on key members in the FBI and DOJ linked to an assortment of public scandals.

One of the main reasons why the Inspector General’s report of its investigation of the FBI has been delayed is because investigators keep getting wiretap intelligence on the key players, the FBI official said.

“It is OK to publicize this now, because they have dug themselves a very big hole,” the FBI source said. “They have switched to burners.”

First it was communications via burner phones among FBI brass, acting like drug cartel members.

Now, it’s discussions via Google’s unsecured gmail platform.
How many other FBI brass are employing Gmail to discuss classified and top secret national security matters?

New shocking details of the FBI’s Peter Strzok and Lisa Page’s anti-Trump texts made public on Thursday show the embattled duo communicated outside of FBI email servers on Google’s unsecured gmail.

This also sidesteps Federal Records Act laws for maintaining custody of all emails exchanged during work for federal employees. Emails exchanged on Google cannot be requested via the FOIA simply because the government does not maintain custody of the correspondences.

See for yourself:

So why hasn’t a Special Counsel been appointed yet to tackle the growing corruption scandals in the FBI?

North Carolina Rep. Mark Meadows took to Twitter Tuesday night to summarize what’s known so far about the FBI’s Peter Strzok scandal, which he says “stinks to high heaven.”

Meadows, a member of the House Judiciary Committee, walked through the timeline of Strzok’s involvement in the Hillary Clinton email investigation as well as a series of text messages that he exchanged with Lisa Page, an FBI lawyer with whom he was having an affair.

Not only were new and shocking details of Strzok and Page’s anti-Trump texts made public in recent days, it was also revealed that the FBI “failed to preserve” five months of Strzok-Page texts during a period when they were working on the investigation into possible Trump campaign collusion.

A Rasmussen poll shows that a plurality of 49 percent of those polled want a special prosecutor to investigate the embattled FBI, while only 31 percent do not. Another 19 percent are on the fence.

According to this poll, the public vehemently disagrees with James Comey, the disgraced former FBI Director who has used his Twitter account to call for an “independent” FBI, which presumably means an FBI that is never criticized or investigated by the American people’s chosen representatives in Congress–a frightening thought by way of a banana republic attitude.

Thankfully, despite the best efforts of Deep Staters like Comey and the corrupted American media, the public is paying attention to the story and is very skeptical of an agency that appears to have been highly politicized during Comey’s reign.
About a year after President Trump fired Comey, we now know that Comey’s tenure resulted in the kind of partisan behavior that resembles the secret police, including the indefensible exoneration of Hillary Clinton over her email scandal, a “secret society” to bring down Trump, an “insurance plan” should Trump win the election, and a partnership with the Clinton campaign to fund a discredited dossier that was used to justify the FISA warrants so the Obama administration could spy on the Trump campaign.
Former deputy assistant director of the FBI counter-terror division Terry Turchie said the agency’s recent scandals symbolize “Watergate part two,” Wednesday on “Fox and Friends.”

“There is a lot of political dirty tricks going on here. I don’t think this trail is going to stop at the door of the Russians,” Turchie said. “I think it’s going to stop where the Democratic party came through the door of the FBI. I think this is Watergate part two.”

Turchie also discussed the texting scandal between former FBI agent Peter Strzok and FBI lawyer Lisa Page and called it a “catastrophic failure,” for the Bureau.
