Rep. Trey Gowdy said Tuesday on Fox News that in the most recently revealed texts between FBI officials Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, the officials discussed “how to avoid texts being captured and secured,” and showed a “manifest bias” against the president.
In one of the biggest stories in a long time, the FBI now says it is missing five months worth of lovers Strzok-Page texts, perhaps 50,000, and all in prime time. Wow!

President Donald Trump directed attention to the news that five months of FBI texts between Peter Strzok and Lisa Page were now missing.
“In one of the biggest stories in a long time, the FBI now says it is missing five months worth of lovers Strzok-Page texts, perhaps 50,000, and all in prime time,” he wrote on Twitter. “Wow!”
The missing texts include messages from government phones issued to Strzok and Page from December 14, 2016 to May 17, 2017 — a key period of time in the Russia investigation.
