Tom Fitton of Judicial Watch, America’s watch dog has filed another Freedom of Information Act lawsuit against Obama’s FBI.

The FBI does not think it is the right of the American people to check out any of former disgraced FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe’s texts regarding his leaks. (MORE BELOW.) 

FBI has lawsuit to preserve text messages and not ‘accidentally on purpose’ lose them.

Judicial Watch “announced today that it filed lawsuits regarding the maintenance of text messages as federal records and for records of the audit of communications of former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe.”

It is a sad day when we have to ask the FBI to keep tabs on their own records.

But as JW said, “If text messages are not preserved, then they may be deleted and never produced to Congress, criminal investigators, and to the American people under FOIA.”

“Following an Inspector General Report, a grand jury reportedly was impaneled recently to investigate McCabe’s possible role in leaks to the media “to advance his personal interests.” (MORE BELOW.) 

The FBI disagrees and sees no reason to let us see the texts conveniently covering for McCabe, Strzok, Page and Comey.

“The FBI has told Judicial Watch that it is under no legal obligation to produce any of Andrew McCabe’s text messages under FOIA, which has attracted criticism from President Trump,” JW reported.

“This lawsuit exposes a massive FBI cover-up of its text messages, which are government records and are, by the thousands, likely to have been deleted and lost by FBI employees,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton.

In ending, “and of course, this cover-up conveniently impacts the production of text messages to Judicial Watch and Congress of disgraced FBI officials Andrew McCabe, Peter Strzok, Lisa Page and James Comey,” reported JW.
