Republican Sen. Ron Johnson said an informant has said there is a “secret society” of the FBI that’s trying to undermine the Trump Administration, and there’s proof that the society was holding off-site meetings outside the Justice Department, he told Fox News on Tuesday night.
“What this is all about is further evidence of corruption … at the highest levels of the FBI. And that secret society? We have an informant who’s talking about a group that was holding secret meetings off-site,” he told host Bret Baier. “There is so much smoke here, so much suspicion.”
The FBI is currently under great scrutiny and suspicion where it concerns its motives and actions – especially since several thousand text messages between top FBI officials have suddenly gone missing. Those text messages also make mention of the “secret society,” according to those who have knowledge of their content.
The messages are also said to reveal that there is no “‘there’ there” for special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into the alleged Russian hacking of the 2016 Presidential election, Johnson has said, and that the FBI’s goals are only to frame the President.

Johnson chairs the Senate Homeland Security Committee, and he appeared on Fox News on Tuesday night and made mention of the “secret society.”
“Let’s stop there – a secret society, secret meetings off-site of the Justice Department,” Baier asked.
“Correct,” Johnson said.
“And you have an information saying that,” Baier asked.
“Yes,” Johnson confirmed.
“Is there anything more about that,” Baier began to ask.
“No, we have to dig into it,” Johnson said.
“We have a bias, potentially corruption at the highest levels of the FBI that is now investigating… And by the way, Robert Mueller used to run the FBI,” Johnson pointed out. “He’s in no position to do an investigation over this type of misconduct.”
Johnson said that Congress needs to look into a special counsel to undertake the Russia investigation.
