FBI secret society conspiracy theory
The FBI secret society is a conspiracy theory claiming the existence of a group of U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation employees with a collective goal of undermining the presidency of Donald Trump. It began with a text message between two FBI investigators, Lisa Page and Peter Strzok, formerly part of special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into the Russian government's interference in the 2016 United States election. The text, sent the day after the 2016 election, said "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." Wisconsin Senator Ron Johnson speculated that it could refer to a particular "secret society," though he later said "it's a real possibility" that it was instead a joke.
