As Twitchy reported Tuesday, Sen. Ron Johnson, chairman of the Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, appeared on Fox News to discuss those texts between the FBI‚Äôs Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, including one mentioning a ‚Äúsecret society.‚ÄĚ
Intriguingly, Johnson told Fox News host Brett Baier the committee has an informant who told them about a group holding meetings off-site.
Sen. Johnson just said to Brett Baier they have a whistle blower who told them about off-site meetings of FBI "secret society."

Who knows? It could turn out to be a bowling league or something ‚Ä¶ but that‚Äôs why Johnson stressed how important it is that whatever documentation is out there ‚ÄĒ like those 5 months‚Äô worth of missing texts ‚ÄĒ is preserved.
Obviously, the heat is being turned up on the Democrats and the FBI, so leave it to Screamin‚Äô Howard Dean to impugn Johnson as a ‚Äúnutcase.‚ÄĚ
I kinda thought this Senator was a nutcase. Looks like I was right. https://t.co/z5QLIupAXS

Funny how Dean doesn‚Äôt seem concerned about those months and months of missing texts, possibly from thousands of FBI-issued smartphones, not just two.
Dean‚Äôs followers were pretty quick to pile on. This post might be a fun one to revisit once some of these documents are made public and the FISA memo is released. Maybe it‚Äôs nothing ‚Ä¶ maybe not; but the nuttiness is spreading among Republicans who‚Äôve read the texts.
We‚Äôll check back in and see how well the ‚Äúshoot the messenger‚ÄĚ strategy worked out for Dean and company.
As a Wisconsin resident, I can assure you that yes, you were right. https://t.co/7Jf33x5kTY

The next thing you know, crackpot Senator Johnson will be talking about the Freemasons. https://t.co/Wv5pmWmxks

Wouldn't be so bad if he was the only one. But, these tinfoil hat wearing nutjobs are running amok in our entire country. What the hell is going on??

What the hell is going on? Something about Trump colluding with Putin to steal the election by using Facebook memes of Hillary Clinton arm wresting Jesus?
Johnson shows ALL the symptoms of someone dropped multiple times on his head‚Ä¶.and yet he got elected.

The more it‚Äôs shared, even if making fun of it, the more people hear & believe in this crap! That‚Äôs the single purpose of the Russian bots! To repeat the crazy claims themselves but also to get us sane people to help them out with reposts. Then it spreads. Best is to not respond!

It‚Äôs the Russian bots, says the guy who thinks Johnson is a nutcase.
