On Thursday, the Office of Inspector General released its partially redacted report describing its investigation into the recovery of text messages from former FBI agent Peter Strzok and his paramour former FBI lawyer Lisa Page.

According to the IG report, the text messages sent between Lisa Page and Peter Strzok about the Mueller probe were ‘lost’ because their phones were conveniently reset to ‘factory settings’ by the someone in the DOJ.

“DOJ-issued iPhones six months earlier when their assignments to the SCO had ended. The 010 was told that the DOJ issued iPhone previously assigned to Strzok had been re-issued to another FBI agent following Strzok’s departure from the SCO. The SCO obtained the iPhone from that individual and provided it to the 010. CYB ER obtained a forensic extraction of the iPhone previously assigned to Strzok; however. this iPhone had been reset to factory settings and was reconfigured for the new user to whom the device was issued. It did not contain data related to Strzok’s use of the device. SCO’s Records Officer told the 010 that as part of the office’s records retention procedure, the officer reviewed Strzok’s DOJ issued iPhone after he returned it to the SCO and determined it contained no substantive text messages.
