“[T]he day after the election…there is a text exchange between these two FBI agents, these supposed to be fact-centric FBI agents saying, ‘Perhaps this is the first meeting of the secret society,'” Gowdy said on Fox News’ “The Story with Martha MacCallum.”
“So I’m going to want to know what secret society you are talking about, because you’re supposed to be investigating objectively the person who just won the Electoral College,” he continued.
Gowdy also pointing to his concern about their mention of an “insurance policy” in their back-and-forth during the spring of 2016, a remark that has captured Republicans’ attention.
The FBI told lawmakers in a letter over the weekend that the bureau did not have a record of messages exchanged over a roughly five-month period between Strzok and Page, citing problems with the bureau’s issued mobile phones.
The announcement further fueled the scrutiny of Republicans, who are calling for efforts to track down the missing messages.
Ratcliffe indicated that their disappearance appears suspicious.
