Justice Department watchdog not consulted before FBI texts released

E-mail Print PDF
Rod RosensteinThe Justice Department's inspector general's office said it wasn't consulted before the agency released text messages sent between two FBI agents to the media.

Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz had discovered FBI agent Peter Strzok and FBI lawyer Lisa Page had exchanged texts critical of Donald Trump and favorable of his presidential campaign opponent Hillary Clinton. Strzok and Page are no longer part of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's team investigating Russia's interference in the 2016 election.

The texts were obtained as part of an inspector general's investigation into how the FBI handled the probe into Clinton's use of a private email server while she was secretary of state.

Horowitz's office said he wrote a letter Friday to the House Judiciary Committee that he needed to "determine whether releasing the text messages met applicable ethical and legal standards before providing them to Congress." Instead, Justice Department officials shared the texts with Congress and members of the media Tuesday.
