This isn't really new. Or much of a surprise.
Some Obama holdovers within the bureaucracy already operated as Obama Anonymous. And then there was Dumbledore's Army at the CFPB. Strzok and Page, the two FBI personnel at the center of the latest firestorm, were adult enough not to call themselves Dumbledore's Army, but apparently they did like the idea of a secret society with its own Hillary decoder rings.
Two top FBI officials under fire for exchanging anti-Trump text messages during the 2016 election spoke of a “secret society” the day after President Trump's victory, according to two lawmakers with knowledge of the messages.
Peter Strzok -- a top counterintelligence official involved in both the Hillary Clinton email probe and FBI Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia probe -- exchanged more than 50,000 messages with senior FBI lawyer Lisa Page, with whom he was romantically involved.
House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., and Rep. John Ratcliffe, R-Texas, said Monday that among the messages the pair exchanged are references to a “secret society” within the Department of Justice and the FBI.
Gowdy said the “secret society” reference occurred the day after Trump won the presidential election in November 2016.
“There’s a text exchange between these two FBI agents, these two supposed to be objective fact-centric FBI agents, saying that perhaps this is the first meeting of the ‘secret society,'” Gowdy said.
This is a much bigger issue than Dumbledore's Army because this outlet of the #Resistance was embedded in the FBI and the DOJ. And it had investigated Hillary and Trump.
Groups like this within some Federal agencies are bad enough. But when the people in the group are trying to remove the President of the United States from office, and that was what the NSA unmasking and the Mueller investigation are about, then it becomes a coup.
Now another one of those extremely convenient technical glitches has happened to some of the Strzok-Page messages.
During the window of missing text messages, a lot happened.
President Trump took the oath of office; National Security Adviser Michael Flynn, whom Strzok interviewed, was fired; the controversial anti-Trump dossier was published; the president fired FBI Director James Comey; and special counsel Mueller was appointed to investigate Russian meddling and potential collusion with Trump campaign associates during the 2016 presidential election.
Much like Hillary's emails and Lois Lerner's emails, this just keeps happening. But the curtain is being rolled back. Obama Anonymous can only obstruct it for so long.
