Here is the single text Republicans are using to push the DOJ ‘secret society’ conspiracy

Published

on

ABC News has acquired the single text message sent from FBI agent Lisa Page to fellow operative Peter Strzok that led Republicans to believe there’s a “secret society” within the Justice Department.

“Are you even going to give out your calendars? Seems kind of depressing. Maybe it should just be the first meeting of the secret society,” Page texted Strzok, who was later removed from his post on special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe into Russia’s election meddling after it was revealed he’d texted partisan opinions critical of President Donald Trump.

Over the last few days, Republicans have touted the Page text as “evidence” of a clandestine group within the DOJ, though they’ve admitted their investigation is still in its early stages when reporters push back. The claim appears to have first been made by Reps. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) and John Ratcliffe (R-TX) on Fox News Monday night, and has since been echoed by Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI). The latter walked his claim back earlier on Wednesday after saying he had an “informant” who provided intel on the secret society.

Writing that candidate Trump swept into the area in 2016 with rallies where he promised jobs and better times ahead McGraw stated that Trump's pitch was well-received and local voters turned out for him.

A British TV news program gave airtime to a panel of white women named Karen who say they have been unfairly maligned.

In a segment on Monday, ITV's Morning Show talked to three women about "memes" that use their name as a slur.

"I just noticed a few memes and TikToks going on and it started of being quite funny," Karen Masters told the program. "And when the Black Lives Matter protests started, there was a lot of media putting Karen as racist. It sort of took on a life of its own."

"And I feel that we can't, as Karens, now talk about how it's affecting us because we are told that we're entitled if we do this," she continued. "So I set up a Change.org [petition] to show that this is not fair for us to have to put up with this."
