ANALYSIS/OPINION:

It was revealed over the weekend that months worth of text messages between anti-Trump FBI official Peter Strzok and his DOJ extra-marital paramour Lisa Page have “disappeared” and can’t be recovered due to a technical glitch. 

Byron York details the importance of these missing emails from December 2016 through May 2017, in relation to the timeline of events that occurred over those months.  

Meanwhile, the Associated Press points out one text message that did not disappear and was released over the weekend. Buried in literally the final paragraphs of their article, AP shows a text that appears to suggest that Attorney General Loretta Lynch knew no charges would be brought against Hillary Clinton in the investigation into her use of an unauthorized, non-secure email server to keep and distribute top secret information:

In another exchange, the two express displeasure about the timing of Lynch’s announcement that she would defer to the FBI’s judgment on the Clinton investigation. That 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, though both sides said the email investigation was never discussed.

Strzok said in a July 1 text message that the timing of Lynch’s announcement “looks like hell.” And Page appears to mockingly refer to Lynch’s decision to accept the FBI’s conclusion in the case as a “real profile in courag(e) since she knows no charges will be brought.”

July 1st was before the FBI had even interviewed Mrs. Clinton about the email investigation and it was four days before then-FBI Director James Comey announced to the world that Clinton would not face criminal charges. 

So, how did Lynch “know no charges” would be brought at that time?
