President Donald Trump tweeted his contempt for the FBI on Tuesday as he demanded to know where the 50,000 text messages exchanged between two Federal Bureau of Investigation staffers accused of expressing views against him had gone.
Where are the 50,000 important text messages between FBI lovers Lisa Page and Peter Strzok? Blaming Samsung!

Trump tweeted Tuesday night: ‘Where are the 50,000 important text messages between FBI lovers Lisa Page and Peter Strzok? Blaming Samsung!’
The agency has claimed that it has had a problem retaining texts from Samsung 5 cell phones it had issued to agents and staff – among them Page, a senior lawyer who was briefly part of Robert Mueller’s special counsel team, and her lover Strzok, who was involved in both the Clinton and Mueller probes.
The FBI claimed that it could not find the texts because of ‘misconfiguration issues related to rollouts, provisioning, and software upgrades that conflicted with the FBI’s collection capabilities’.
Although it did not directly blame Samsung, that was how Trump, who has been a vocal critic of the agency, characterized it.
