On Friday, government watchdog organization, Judicial Watch announced that it received 87 pages of records from the Department of Justice revealing new communications between embattled FBI Agent Peter Strzok and his paramour, former FBI attorney, Lisa Page.

Emails between the FBI lovers revealed what Judicial Watch describes as their “profanity-laced disdain for FBI hierarchy and policies.”

One conversation between Strzok and Page involved a discussion on a FBI policy change:

From: Strzok, Peter P. (WF) (FBI)
Sent: Wednesday, February 04, 2015 3:34 PM
To: Page, Lisa C. (OGC) (FBI)
Subject: FWD: FBI to Allow Companies to Reveal When They Receive National Security Letters

Sigh…are you f’ing kidding…

Judicial Watch filed a motion for preservation order, asking that DOJ prevent Strzok and Page from deleting any “incriminating records of their communications.”

Sigh. This is the third conversation I will have had with him or someone on his staff about this

The documents were released after Judicial Watch submitted a FOIA request in January of 2018 which sought:

  • “All records of communications, including but not limited to, emails, text messages and instant chats, between FBI official Peter Strzok and FBI attorney Lisa Page;
  • All travel requests, travel authorizations, travel vouchers and expense reports of Peter Strzok;
  • All travel requests, travel authorizations, travel vouchers and expense reports of Lisa Page.”

On June 1, Judicial Watch filed a motion for preservation order, asking that DOJ prevent Strzok and Page from deleting any “incriminating records of their communications.”  According to the press release, the FBI claims it sent a letter requesting the embattled couple preserve their communications back in May, however, the watchdog organization says, “there have been no assurances that this was even done.”

Judicial Watch asked for copies of the letters the FBI allegedly sent to Strzok and Page but says the FBI, “refuses to provide any evidence supporting this assertion.”

President of Judicial Watch, Tom Fitton, says “The Justice Department is stonewalling and even protecting Strzok and Page by battling our request for preservation order to ensure that no government documents are destroyed.”
