Republican Wisconsin Sen. Ron Johnson told Fox News Tuesday that an “informant” confirmed the existence of an anti-Trump “secret society” within the Department of Justice and FBI.
House Oversight Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy raised eyebrows Monday describing how FBI agent Peter Strzok and FBI lawyer Lisa Page described a “secret society” that met off-site at the FBI.
Strzok and Page, both of whom were involved in Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s probe into election interference, are being investigated for disparaging texts exchanged about President Trump. The existence of the texts gives further evidence to Republican claims that the Muller probe is biased against Trump.
Strzok was removed from working on the investigation by Mueller before the texts became public.
Sen. Johnson told Bret Baier that these texts prove evidence of “corruption at the highest levels of the FBI.” The senator dropped a bombshell about the secret society:
“That secret society, we have an informant that’s talking about a group that was holding secret meetings offsite.”
Baier replied, “Secret meetings offsite at the Justice Department? You have an informant on that?”
Johnson said “Yes.”
“The 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. So I’m going to want to know what secret society you’re talking about, because you’re supposed to be investigating objectively the person who just won the Electoral College.”
