The investigation of politically motivated FBI officials is turning out to be the things spy novels are made of.
As details of what was going on behind the scenes in the Obama Administration during the contentious presidential race between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump come to light, we’re learning there may have been an attempt to begin a “secret society.”
Rep. Trey Gowdy and Rep John Ratcliffe told Fox News’ Martha MacCallum that a new text message between two top FBI officials continue to show “manifest” anti-Trump bias in the upper echelon of the FBI and DOJ.
A text between FBI counterintelligence official Pete Strzok and his mistress FBI lawyer Lisa Page reveal what the two had planned the day after Trump’s 2016 election win.
“We learned today about information that after — in the immediate aftermath of [Trump’s] election that there may have been a secret society of folks within the Department of Justice and the FBI to include Page and Strzok that would be working against him,” Ratcliffe told Fox’s Martha MacCallum.

The revelation of a possible budding “secret society” comes after a text exchange between Strzok and Page that indicated then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch knew Clinton would be exonerated by the FBI of any wrongdoing regarding alleged use of a non-secure email server before then-FBI Director James Comey made the announcement.
