Wednesday, Congressman Gary Palmer, R-Hoover, released a statement after it was reported that the FBI text messages exchanged between agents critical of President Donald Trump had been destroyed and might be un-retrievable.
“The revelation that thousands of text messages exchanged between FBI agents critical of President Trump is reminiscent of what has happened in other investigations of potential and actual government misconduct,” Palmer said. “For instance, backup tapes containing thousands of Lois Lerner’s emails were destroyed, even though the emails were under an evidence preservation order. Lerner was being investigated for using her position at the IRS to harass conservative tax-exempt organizations that were considered political enemies of the Obama Administration.”
