Report: Informant tells Congress there was a secret society at FBI – this is not a joke

U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson, a Wisconsin Republican, confirmed that there indeed was a “secret society” operating within the FBI and Justice Department that was set up after the election of President Donald Trump.

He told Fox News Channel’s Bret Baier Tuesday that the information came to him from a Congressional informant, confirming the “secret society” reference in a recently disclosed text message between the FBI’s Peter Strzok and Lisa Page.

“Stop there”

“What this is all about is further evidence of corruption, more than bias. Corruption of the highest levels of the FBI. The secret society — we have an informant talking about a group holding secret meetings off-site,” Johnson said on Special Report. “There’s so much smoke here, there’s so much suspicions–”

Baier appeared taken aback by the “secret society” revelation and interrupted Johnson at this point.

“Let’s stop there. Secret society? Secret meetings off-site of the Justice Department? You have an informant saying that?” he asked.

“Yes,” Johnson replied.

“We have to dig into it . . . This is bias, potentially corruption, at the highest levels of the FBI. Robert Mueller used to run the FBI. He’s in no position to do an investigation over this kind of misconduct,” he added.

“I think at this point, we probably should be looking at a special counsel to undertake this investigation. Congress is going to have to continue to dig.”

“Secret society” first disclosed in text message

The first claim of a “secret society” surfaced Monday when Reps. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., and John Ratcliffe, R-Texas, also referenced the possibility of secret meetings during their interview on Fox News Channel’s The Story.

“We learned today about information that in the immediate aftermath of [Trump’s] election, that there may have been a secret society of folks within the Department of Justice and the FBI — to include Page and Strzok — that would be working against him,” Ratcliffe told FNC host Martha MacCallum.

That information was disclosed in the latest batch of text messages between Strzok and Page. The pair were both members of special counsel Robert Mueller’s team until the messages — totaling in excess of 50,000 — were discovered. Strzok is an FBI counterintelligence officer and Page an FBI lawyer.
