There has been a lot of speculation about collusion between the FBI and the Justice Department concerning a coverup of Hillary Clinton’s crimes while Secretary of State. One of the biggest things pointed to was the infamous tarmac meeting between former President Bill Clinton and former Attorney General Loretta Lynch.
In an earlier report, it was indicated that two FBI officials discussed a “secret society,” but now there are texts that have revealed that the Justice Department may have known ahead of time that there would be no charges filed against Hillary.
Additionally, the FBI has also admitted to losing 5 months worth of texts between two of their agents. It makes you wonder just what was in those texts.
Which text messages did the FBI magically lose? The ones between anti-Trump agents from December 14, 2016…through the day Mueller was appointed. What a coincidence! https://t.co/6e1o3gUOX3

The Justice Department has given various congressional committees nearly 400 pages of additional text messages between two FBI officials who were removed from Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into alleged collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian officials.
One of the newly discovered messages, lawmakers said, appeared to indicate that Peter Strzok and Lisa Page knew that charges would not be filed against Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton as a result of the investigation into her email server — before Clinton was interviewed by the bureau.
Strzok and Page were pulled off the probe last summer after it emerged that some of their messages to each other included anti-Trump content. Strzok, an FBI counterintelligence agent, was reassigned to the Bureau’s human resources division after the discovery of the exchanges with Page, with whom he was having an affair.
. . . . One exchange between Strzok and Page, dated July 1, 2016, referenced then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch’s decision to accept the FBI’s conclusion in the Clinton investigation. Lynch’s announcement came days after it was revealed that the attorney general and former President Bill Clinton had an impromptu meeting aboard her plane in Phoenix.
“Timing looks like hell,” Strzok texted Page.
“Yeah, that is awful timing,” Page agreed. In a later message, she added: “It’s a real profile in couragw [sic], since she knows no charges will be brought.”
Four days later, then-FBI Director James Comey announced that no charges would be brought against Clinton, even though — as he put it — her actions in regard to the private server were “extremely careless.”
Additionally, Legal Insurrection points out:
Newly-released messages between two FBI agents who were then working on the Hillary Clinton email investigation show that they and possibly then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch knew in advance that no charges would be recommended by then-FBI Director James Comey. The FBI has further admitted to “losing” five months worth of texts between these same FBI agents.
On July 5, 2016, then-FBI Director Comey issued a statement about the FBI’s investigation into the Hillary Clinton email scandal. This was the statement that effectively laid out the case against Hillary while simultaneously killing any chance that Hillary would be charged with any crimes because Comey did not see any “intent.”
At the beginning of this July 5th statement, Comey stated, “I have not coordinated or reviewed this statement in any way with the Department of Justice or any other part of the government. They do not know what I am about to say.”
Text messages between FBI agents working on the Hillary email investigation have since been released that show these two agents knew—on July 1st—that Hillary would be exonerated. Not only did they know this on July 1st, but they discuss then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch being aware of the FBI’s decision on July 1st, days before Comey’s July 5th official recommendation to the DOJ.
Peter Strzok and Lisa Page exchanged July 1, 2016 text message saying that Loretta Lynch knew FBI's decision not to charge Hillary Clinton. But recall what Comey said on July 5. https://t.co/EoAXf0jwZb @dailycaller pic.twitter.com/bnydAmo9w0

Remember it was on July 1st that Lynch announced she would defer to the FBI and accept their recommendation on Hillary email charges. This followed the June 29th “tarmac summit” between Bill Clinton and Lynch.

The DOJ had previously withheld 29 documents pertaining to the tarmac meeting after releasing 417 pages just months earlier.
For a meeting regarding “grandkids and golf” that’s certainly a lot of documents, don’t you think?
Not only that, but the NSA said they would not be releasing any recordings of the meeting due to “national security.” Since when did grandkids and golf become national security?
They didn’t. This is all a coverup, plain and simple.
Criminals covering for criminals.
Lynch knew because she was in on protecting Hillary, just like Comey was.
