Criminal probe opened into deletion of Secret Service Jan. 6 text messages

Date:

Let’s hope it will be anally invasive, as the Secret Service now has some splainin to do with the public and Congress. Yeah, I know, they don’t usually stand up to scrutiny over there at Treasury, I mean we had Mnuchin as Secretary under Trump, which should tell you all you need to know about obtaining kompromat on Trump’s enemies. Why do you think Trump put him in Treasury? It was to be able to anally probe Trump’s enemies by looking deeply into their finances. Now it appears that it’s the Secret Service getting probed, and one hopes it will be an ANALLY INVASIVE probe to root out all that corruption and dark rot in the agency.

Story below:

  • The Department of Homeland Security’s internal watchdog has opened a criminal investigation into the destruction of Secret Service phone text messages related to the days around the Jan. 6 Capitol riot, two sources familiar with the matter told NBC News.
  • The Secret Service was informed of the probe Wednesday night by the Inspector General of DHS, who ordered the agency to stop internal investigations into the deleted text messages, NBC reported.
  • News of the criminal probe came hours before the House select committee investigating the Capitol right was set to hold a primetime hearing into President Donald Trump’s inaction that day.

The Department of Homeland Security’s internal watchdog has opened a criminal investigation into the destruction of Secret Service phone text messages related to the days around the Jan. 6 Capitol riot, two sources familiar with the matter told NBC News.

The Secret Service was informed of the probe Wednesday night by the office of the Inspector General of DHS, who ordered the agency to stop any internal investigations into the deleted text messages, NBC reported.

The House select committee investigating the Capitol riot last week issued a subpoena to the Secret Service seeking text messages after learning from the IG that messages from Jan. 5 and 6, 2021, had been erased, purportedly as the result of a “device replacement program.”

On Wednesday, the committee said the Secret Service may have violated federal records-keeping law in deleting the messages.

DHS deputy inspector general Gladys Ayala in her letter to Secret Service Director James Murray later Wednesday wrote, “To ensure the integrity of our investigation, the USSS must not engage in any further investigative activities regarding the collection and preservation of the evidence referenced above.”

“This includes immediately refraining from interviewing potential witnesses, collecting devices or taking any other action that would interfere with an ongoing criminal investigation.,” Ayala wrote.

The Secret Service in a statement Thursday said it was “in receipt of the Department of Homeland Security Inspector General’s letter.”

“We have informed the January 6th Select Committee of the Inspector General’s request and will conduct a thorough legal review to ensure we are fully cooperative with all oversight efforts and that they do not conflict with each other,” the Secret Service said.

News of the criminal probe came hours before the House select committee investigating the Capitol right was set to hold a primetime hearing into President Donald Trump’s inaction that day.
