The ‘Deleted Text’ Scandal Democrats Want You to Forget


Recommended Posts

American Greatness

“Has the Secret Service become a national security threat?” Ja’han Jones of MSNBC recently asked. He refers, of course, to the “scandal” surrounding missing or deleted texts of Secret Service agents sent on January 6 as the incursion into the Capitol unfolded. 

Of course, the scandal really began when anonymous Secret Service agents made the mistake of embarrassing the House’s January 6 tribunal by contradicting the outlandish hearsay account of Cassidy Hutchinson. Hutchinson’s story riveted Trump-hating viewers. But the committee had rushed to promote her testimony without first checking with any of the people who were actually present. Naturally, with egg on their faces, the committee launched a revenge campaign against the agency assigned with protecting the president. It demanded texts and its media allies declared routine deletions to be a cover-up.

Ja’han Jones practically said the quiet part out loud: In the “get Trump” era, contradicting anti-Trump an narrative constitutes the highest of all crimes against the re-defined “national security” of the oligarchtical uniparty that really runs things. 


But there is something oddly familiar about this deleted text scandal. As so often is the case, the fake outrage over the deleted Secret Service texts has a much more serious analogue that was received very differently because the shoe was on the other foot. In the get-Trump era, government insiders intentionally deleted texts to cover-up a very real attempt to overthrow a duly elected president.

Let’s take a walk down memory lane.:snip:

The FBI Twice Interfered in the 2020 Election to Sabotage Trump. Now What?

It could be the whopper of the year.

“I can tell you that in every case we follow the facts and the evidence and the law and we do so without regard to politics or ideology,” Matthew Olsen, head of the Justice Department’s National Security Division, solemnly assured the House Judiciary Committee during a hearing last week.

Olsen was responding to a question by U.S. Representative Dan Bishop (R-N.C.) about the decision to arrest several men for supposedly conspiring to abduct and assassinate Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer in 2020. “The alleged Whitmer plot was announced on October 7, 2020 within a month of the U.S. presidential election,” Bishop asked Olsen. “How come that [was the] timing for the FBI’s announcement of this plot?”


Olsen refused to explain why, opting instead to commit borderline perjury by insisting the Justice Department turns a blind eye to politics—all evidence accumulated over the past six years to the contrary.

But now that two men have been acquitted after defense attorneys convinced a Michigan jury in April that the FBI entrapped their clients—the jury deadlocked on two other defendants who face a new trial next week—Bishop’s question demands an answer. And it won’t come from a dangerously-weaponized Justice Department focused almost entirely on prosecuting Americans who protested Joe Biden’s election on January 6, 2021 and with its sights now trained on indicting Donald Trump.:snip:
