President Donald Trump has accused former special counsel Robert Mueller of erasing FBI communication records, but has provided no evidence.
Last year, Trump claimed that the text messages between Lisa Page, an FBI attorney, and Peter Strzok, deputy assistant director of counterintelligence, were “purposely & illegally deleted.”
However, those messages were recovered and some were published last year by the Senate Homeland Security Committee.
Trump Says Mueller Illegally “Terminated” FBI Agents’ Texts
However, Trump is back on the subject of those texts, again, alleging that Mueller “terminated” those text messages between the two FBI agents, saying that “they’re gone. And that’s illegal. That’s a crime.” He has also suggested that there are more that haven’t been released yet.
Trump hasn’t provided any evidence for any of these claims.
These comments from Trump came only one day after it was announced that Mueller will publicly testify on July 17th before the House Judiciary and Intelligence Committees in an open session.
