    FBI Lovers Texted Every Four Minutes During Those Missing Five Months
    If media reports of 50,000 missing text messages between the two bureau workers are true, they were typing away all the time
    by Mark Tapscott | Updated 25 Jan 2018 at 2:24 PM

    FBI counterintelligence agent Peter Strzok and his lover, bureau lawyer Lisa Page, sent each other an estimated 50,000 text messages during a five-month period in 2016 and 2017 that are now “lost.”

    To put 50,000 texts in five months into perspective, consider this:

    • There are 12,960,000 seconds in five 30-day months.
    • The number 12,960,000 divided by 50,000 equals a new text message every 259.2 seconds.
    • This means Strzok and Page texted each other about every 4.32 minutes.
    • That’s every day of every week of every month for five months!
    Investigators might wonder how Strzok and Page found time to do anything else — like participating in special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation of allegations President Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign colluded with Russian interests to defeat Democrat Hillary Clinton.

    When you're the Deputy Assistant Director of the Counterintelligence Division, OBVIOUSLY the most important thing to do is to text your secret lover about secret societies while plotting a way to get on the Special Counsel's staff.

    Boy, am I encouraged about the quality of this special counsel investigation!

    I considered that texts are very quick to send and you can have a 20-text conversation in just a couple of minutes. So, a per-minute run-rate could be misleading. Instead, I considered texting blocks. If a block is 20 texts (10 per person) in rapid succession, and you did this over the course of 150 days... well that's still 17 such blocks every day. For people carrying on an affair, they didn't talk face-to-face very much, did they?

    Maybe I'm wrong, but I think I've read that the 50k number is the total number of texts not the number lost. If so this thread is based on a cool, but worthless, statistic.

    I know when I want accurate info I first go to lifezette... and yes, the 50,000 texts were supposedly all texts, not just the ones between the two in question.

    Sounds like they are members of a secret society.

    Mueller's investigation has had no evidence of bias, or anything that would be unprofessional thus far. Mueller himself is a Republican. The texts they do have includes the agents lambasting Hillary as much as they bash Trump. Despite this Mueller dismissed the troubled agent from the investigation showing again his impartiality during the investigation.

    There was absolutely zero serious talk about secret societies in the texts at all.

    So far Mueller has done an exemplary job of keeping the investigation above board.

    Hahha ... reading through now. Hilarious that these agents were actually PUSHING for a special counsel in the Hillary email case.

    But that narrative ...

    Wait they wanted a special counsel with the hillary emails? Lol Republicans are going to have a hard time selling them as pawns of liberals if that's the case
