(Ana Michaels, Liberty Headlines) The Chairman of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee said Tuesday that the FBI investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of government emails on her private server was “a joke.”

Brian Kilmeade interviewed Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wisc.), and also questioned him about the five months of missing texts between FBI agents Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, on his Fox News radio program.

Johnson told Kilmeade how then-Secretary of State Clinton jeopardized national security by emailing President Obama from the territory of a “sophisticated enemy,” using her private server.

Johnson described how other publicly revealed texts showed that Attorney General Loretta Lynch knew Clinton was going to get off the hook, before former FBI Director James Comey announced he was not going to prosecute Clinton over her server.

“It was obvious – it wasn’t an investigation meant to uncover the truth leading to prosecution. It was an investigation meant to cover up and exonerate, and now we’re just seeing exactly how that was playing out and why and who the main players were,” said Johnson.


Johnson also addressed the FBI “Secret Society” mentioned in the texts.

“First of all, on November 14th – this is six days after the election – Lisa Page texts Strzok and says, ‘God, being here makes me angry… Lots of high-faluting national security talk, meanwhile we have Our task ahead of us’ – and ‘Our’ is capitalized. Is that the implementation of their ‘insurance policy’?”  Johnson wondered.

Johnson also mentioned that Strzok didn’t think there was any significant evidence to implicate the Trump campaign for Russian collusion.

“This is what Strzok texts Page: ‘You and I both know the odds are nothing. If I thought it was likely, there would be no question. I hesitate in part because my gut sense and concern is there’s no big ‘there’ there,” Johnson told Kilmeade.

Johnson also told Kilmeade that Strzok and Page tried to make their conversations ‘undiscoverable’ by law enforcement.
