Citing the Federalist, President Donald Trump took to Twitter to express is disappointment the report stating some 19,000 texts between fired FBI Agent Peter Strzok and his girlfriend Lisa Paige were “wiped clean and gone.”

The website contends that the texts were intentionally discarded by someone at the Department of Justice, but that claim is being contested by the Office of the Inspector General itself.

According to a Huffington Post, a media publication Trump categorizes as “FAKE NEWS,” the Office of Inspector General “determined that the texts were initially missing due to faulty technology, not malicious intent. More than 20,000 texts have been recovered, according to an OIG report issued this month.”
