ABC News has obtained the "secret society" text…
It's a stand alone message from Lisa Page:
"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" https://t.co/qxlXSgYAme

… On Friday, the Justice Department handed the Senate Homeland Security Committee and other committees a new batch of more than 1,000 messages sent between Strzok and Page. The messages newly obtained by ABC News were in that set.
Asked Wednesday whether he believes there’s a “secret society” inside the FBI to take down the president, the chairman of the Senate Homeland Security Committee, Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wisc., said, “That’s Strzok and Page’s term.”
“Everything I take with a grain of salt,” he added. “[But] I’ve heard from an individual that … there was a group of managers within the FBI that were holding meetings off site.”
So “when Strzok and Page had described a secret society, that didn’t surprise me because I had corroborating information,” Johnson said.
He declined to describe the “whistleblower” in any way, and he said he did not know what the FBI’s “off-site” meetings might have entailed.
Nevertheless, he said he is “trying to be as transparent as possible.” …
Oh, you’re certainly “transparent”, Sen. Johnson…
I just changed the name of my phone’s WiFi hotspot to “Secret Society”.
Next up: leaving my phone in the car outside my local Republican Reps office.

Johnson: “I've heard from an individual that there were FBI agents … management of the FBI, holding meetings off-site.”
My Q: Off-site to do what, exactly?
Johnson: “I don't know. …(The texts) raise an awful lot of questions; it is my responsibility to try and get answers.”

“To truly secure our borders, the United States must identify and eliminate the incentives for illegal immigration.” https://t.co/vg0LTRW60F

The incentives for illegal immigration are a thriving economy, a non-corrupt government, and safe workplaces and communities. https://t.co/4BrTLhRxc8
