Republican Rep. Ron DeSantis of Florida said Friday on “Fox & Friends” that deputy attorney general Rod Rosenstein must produce more of the Strzok-Page texts to Congress or face the consequences.
DeSantis claims there are “big gaps” in the information Congress has received thus far and suspects many texts may be missing.
“Big gaps. No doubt about it,” he said. “I think their average texts from the other periods were almost 12 texts as day. From the production we got over a key six month period, it was less than two texts a day.”
“Unless they just magically had radically different texting habits for that particular six months, there is a lot more that needs to be received by the Congress and we’re going to have to go back to Rosenstein and go back to these guys and say produce the goods,” DeSantis continued.
He also commented on the possible impeachment of Rosenstein and thinks it should be kept on the table, to avoid further obstruction.
“If you’re not willing to do things like that then you are going to keep getting stonewalled,” Desantis concluded. “And I think the fear is that they try to string this out past the election and if the Democrats take over, which I hope not, then they don’t have to worry about doing this anymore.”
