FBI Agent Peter Strozk Anti-Trump Messages Released To Media – However, The Key Question is Not Content…

The text messages between FBI Agent Peter Strozk and his mistress, FBI lawyer Lisa Page, have been released to both Fox News and CBS.  SEE HERE and SEE HERE.

The messages reflect a strong bias against President Trump. However, the bigger story is not the anti-Trump bias within the text communication, the BIGGER story is why the Department of Justice, Office of Inspector General (OIG), began even looking at Agent Peter Strozk’s communication in the first place.

Remember, the original mandate by the Inspector General’s office was initiated to review and discover any politicization of the FBI and/or DOJ officials.

After news broke of Strzok’s removal from investigative duty within the FBI counterintelligence unit, what the OIG responding statement said was for 11 months the Dept of Justice OIG office has been investigating the politicization within the DOJ and FBI and deciding if the actions, or lack of action, was driven by the political ideology of the participants therein:

(pdf Link)

In essence the IG began looking for any investigative issues that might show how political bias might have resulted in manipulated or changed investigative outcomes.  Potentially those outlined issues are brutally unethical, and most likely unlawful.  [Read the initiating IG office outline above because I’m going to reference it later] Emphasis:

“The January 2017 statement issued by the Department of Justice Office of the Inspector General (OIG) announcing its review of allegations regarding various actions of the Department of Justice and the Federal Bureau of Investigation in advance of the 2016 election stated that the OIG review would, among other things, consider whether certain underlying investigative decisions were based on improper considerations and that we also would include issues that might arise during the course of the review.

The OIG has been reviewing allegations involving communications between certain individuals, and will report its findings regarding those allegations promptly upon completion of the review of them.”

It was within this IG investigation that SOMETHING pointed the investigative agents in the direction of FBI Agent Peter Strzok.  What that something was and is remains an unknown variable; however, the outcome of the subsequent inquiry led to Agent Strzok being removed mid-summer from Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s team.

There was some precipitating event that led the IG to investigate the communication of FBI Agent Strzok.  That precipitating event or behavior is where the real story lies, and not in the downstream collection –and current release– of biased text messages between Strzok and his mistress FBI Attorney Lisa Page who worked for Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe.

Against the backdrop of current activity, and knowing there is a newly established special joint task force within the DOJ and FBI to identify leaks, we can reasonably speculate Agent Strzok was caught while the IG was investigating politicization, and the DOJ/FBI  leak task force was hunting intelligence “leakers“.

As Judicial Committee Representative Jim Jordan rightly outlined, Agent Strzok would not likely be removed because he had biased text messages with his mistress.  So long as that bias did not interfere with his work duty, there is no issue; and Strzok was not in a position of supervision over Lisa Page so they could encounter like rabbits to their black-hats desire.  However, if FBI Agent Strzok was a “leaker” to the media, or worse, well, that’s an entirely different kettle-o-fish.

Getting caught as a leaker is likely the reason Strzok was removed and reassigned to the HR post; not the bias.  The bias, writ large, is essentially a snipe hunt; it makes good media clicks, it feeds a good headline, but ultimately it’s a nothingburger.  The reports on this angle are flak and countermeasures.

However, Agent Strzok leaking information to the media; his changing the outcome of an FBI investigation into a political ally, Hillary Clinton; and his investigative involvement in the Trump Russia Conspiracy, via the Steele Dossier and FISA warrant, well, that’s the real issue evident here.

AUGUST 2017 – […] A former FBI agent who worked with Strzok on and off over several years in the bureau’s counterintelligence division said that Strzok’s move to HR means he has now been separated from counterintelligence work altogether.

[…]  Strzok’s departure also came one week after The Washington Post reported that Mueller had obtained a search warrant to raid the home of President Donald Trump’s former campaign chairman, Paul Manafort. The Post report cited “people familiar with the search,” prompting questions about whether anyone on Mueller’s team had leaked the existence of the search warrant to the Post. (link)

Which leads us to the next headline story that dovetails into this ideological weaponization by FBI/DOJ/DC officials leaking to the media.

Donald Trump Jr. has now written a letter of complaint to the House Rep. K. Michael Conaway, a Texas Republican who is heading the House Intelligence inquiry into Russian election interference.  Don Jr’s outline specifically focuses on the erroneous leak to CNN about the content of a received email; and requests an investigation into how the leak took place:

The Washington Times reports:

[…] Republicans suspect that the staff of Rep. Adam Schiff, California Democrat, leaked the erroneous “scoop” to CNN. They say his staff regularly leaks, with CNN being a favorite, with a spin that is not accurate.

Mr. Schiff, who is a big fan of the discredited Trump dossier, appeared on TV afterward. Mr. Futerfas said he misrepresented his client’s testimony.

[…] Mr. Futerfas’s implication is that the leakers let the story catch fire on social media and other venues before correcting it.

“Ranking Member Schiff and his staff do not leak classified or confidential information, and any disclosure of non-public information by the congressional committees undertaking investigations is singularly unhelpful,” Mr. Schiff said in a statement. “It is imperative that all investigations into Russia’s covert political interference campaign operate with appropriate discretion and refrain from publicizing information for short-sighted political gain.”  (read more)

Having some idea of how these DC investigative practices work, it is highly doubtful that Don Jr’s attorney self-initiated that complaint on his client’s behest.  There is a strong possibility the investigative unit, the new leak task-force, and/or the IG office, needs that initiating complaint in order to continue targeting the potential subjects of the leaks.

Given the recent activity surrounding the House Intelligence Committee, there is a better than good likelihood Minority Chairman Adam Schiff is one of the targets; and if the pattern exhibited within the Strzok investigation is followed, Schiff’s communications might also be monitored within the net as it is cast.

FBI Agent Peter Strzok’s former boss was Bill Priestap, FBI Asst. Director in charge of Counterintelligence.  [The same Bill Priestap James Comey stated was the person who decided not to tell congressional oversight of the investigation]  Bill Priestap’s boss was FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe. McCabe was also Lisa Page’s boss. Directly above McCabe in the chain-of-command was FBI Director James Comey.

Notice how things are seeming to gain speed within the daily/weekly discovery cycles?

    He was Agent in charge of most of the relevant investigations…… why would looking at him be even slightly unusual?

    “to review and discover any politicization of the FBI and/or DOJ officials”.
    You’d look at top management then at the unit management, ie, Strozks.

      Agree completely. Looking at Strzok’s management will be critical. This is how tainted, controlled appointments work. He wasn’t just there by accident. And he had somebody watching him for TWO reasons – keep him pointed in the right direction, and make sure that if he started to get the “wrong” ideas, he could be replaced swiftly.

      Knowing who Page was communicating back to will help unravel things.

          If not standard, it certainly SHOULD be.

          However, I think in the past, people would largely be looking (even with those sources) in the wrong places for a *POLITICAL* investigation, because they wouldn’t realize what we’re dealing with – subversive communist influence, American style. Rooting that out is completely different from a normal political investigation.

          Normally, people would look for the usual suspects: “follow the money”, diversion, embezzlement, bribery, abuse of office, quid pro quos for personal gain, etc., etc. It’s all very cheap, corrupt, and amateurish. Very “American political party”.

          But what we’re dealing with here is (IMO) a mixture of the CIA’s best human techniques married to an internal cryptopolitical influence operation, where the government itself has become the subversive, corrupting influence.

          I just look at the picture of the woman, and I feel like I’ve seen that face 1000 times before. It’s like a translation of Russian and Chinese into American English. The slightly vacant, big-smile “looker”, and the earnest nerd.

          Yeah. Still working after 1,000,000 years.

            Wolfmoon1776, you have the problem summarized beautifully: “what we’re dealing with — subversive communist influence, American style.”

            My guess is that many America-globalist elite are not actually “communist,” but they have had a fine time both directing (with funds, at the very least, with scientific fraud-AGW) and riding the coat tails of American marxist agents. The goals — 1) to destroy this country and the strength and capabilities of American citizens; 2) to plunder the wealth found everywhere.

            These nasties have been active since the 1960s. They took over the many magnificent movements that expanded American democracy and opportunity to all citizens.

            Few noticed that beloved liberal values, necessary to be conserved if the American Republic was to continue and prosper, were being insidiously subverted and inverted. (Many of the same attempts occurred under FDR — way too many communists in the Democratic Party, but not the majority.)

            The American version found a tremendous opportunity and patsy in red-diaper-baby O and could wrap themselves around the victimhood of “racism” — the perfect storm. “Victimhood” is such a pussy claim; it fits all snowflakes to a T. No one really needs to work; all problems are caused by “them.” Pure projection.

            Affirmative Action as an (old fashioned) American success story sold President O and his “wonderful wife” and “lovely children” to the American public — communists all, with Islam thrown in, to boot.

            Affirmative Action should have been available only for children up to high school in terms of the 3 Rs (only subject areas, not “social justice” topics). Discrimination on other levels could be dealt with laws already in place.

            O – his handlers – had 8 years to burrow themselves into our labyrithine government bureauocracies

            We need a legal rotor-rooter kind of tool for all the treason that has buried itself in the American body politic. The successes so far have been amazing, but we need many, many more. MAGA

            (I hope voter fraud can be investigated in the Alabama election.)

        Sure – the Leftists were demanding a “special prosecutor” in hopes of Watergate II, but the Law says Special Counsel and that only for investigating a Crime. Firing the FBI Director is not a “crime”, there is no Federal Statute for “collusion”.

        “”“I want to believe the path you threw out for consideration in Andy’s office — that there’s no way [Trump] gets elected — but I’m afraid we can’t take that risk,” FBI counterintelligence official Peter Strzok wrote in a cryptic text message to Lisa Page, an FBI lawyer and his mistress.

        “It’s like an insurance policy in the unlikely event you die before you’re 40,” Strzok wrote in the text, dated Aug. 15, 2016.”””

Page has prosecuted a number cases involving eastern European organized crime.

    This was the question Rep Jim Jordan kept centering in on with Wray. Why was he fired? Why did IG even look at his texts? He also did not think it was because of anti Trump text messages. In fact, he said if that were the case they would likely have all been fired. He thinks Strozk is involved with using fake dossier to obtain FISA warrant.

    Going with the theory that the Don Jr team went into that interview to set up a leak trap, who changed the date in the email? The leakers who wanted to make a false story?

      If it was a Canary Trap, and I agree with this theory, then it’s probable that everyone who was in the meeting with Schiff received a copy, each with a different date in order to determine who in the committee was the leaker. Schiff leaked and that’s why MSM can’t reveal him as a source, and it’s why he ran to MSM in a fit. Schiff is toast and he knows it.

    FBI Agent Praised Hillary Clinton While He Was Leading Email Investigation

    FBI agent Peter Strzok praised Hillary Clinton and said he would vote for her for president while also leading the investigation into her possible mishandling of classified information.

    A month before Strzok sent his pro-Clinton texts, he conducted an interview with Jake Sullivan, a former State Department official and Clinton aide who sent many of the classified emails that ended up on Clinton’s private email server.

    FBI records show that Strzok interviewed Sullivan on Feb. 27, 2016.

    He interviewed Huma Abedin on April 5, 2016 and Cheryl Mills on April 9 and May 28, 2016. An interview with Clinton attorney Heather Samuelson was conducted on May 24, 2016, according to FBI records

    Abedin and Mills, the two Clinton aides, appear to have given misleading statements in their interviews about what they knew about Clinton’s use of a private email server. But neither faced charges for the false statements

      The “computer scientist” was exposed:

      Professor L. Jean Camp from Indiana University became a spokesperson last fall for a loose group of computer researchers who reported they had detected a series of communications between a commercial email server registered at Donald Trump’s office in New York City and a server at Alfa Bank in Russia.

      And it was discussed at the time on CTH. The office was a contractor who did advertizing for Trump IIRC.

      More recently (10/26/2017) Russian Bank Accused of Trump Connection Tries to Clear Name by Pressuring U.S. Computer Researcher
      Today, the bank at the heart of the controversy is waging an intimidating legal campaign against an American professor who helped connect the odd dots[…]
      Alfa Bank vehemently denied the conclusions of the computer scientists (and Slate), claiming the suspicious internet traffic was caused by errant spam emails from Trump hotels and that their reputation was under politically motivated attack. Outlets that included The Intercept and the Washington Post questioned just how solid the evidence was, pointing out technical gaps and suggesting that the weird server blips were certainly suspicious and worth investigating, but probably not evidence of covert communications. It was, it seemed, probably just too juicy to be true.[…]”

    “I want to believe the path you threw out for consideration in Andy’s office — that there’s no way [Trump] gets elected — but I’m afraid we can’t take that risk,” FBI counterintelligence official Peter Strzok wrote in a cryptic text message to Lisa Page, an FBI lawyer and his mistress.

    “It’s like an insurance policy in the unlikely event you die before you’re 40,” Strzok wrote in the text, dated Aug. 15, 2016.

    (Untoward comment IMO: was he trying to make us feel in the minority, to question our judgement? Why did he even make that comment?)

    I am also wondering if there are two get-$-scripts that may follow that first question, one spiel for a yes answer and one for a no answer.
