FBI Damage Control and Justification Part II – CoIntel Agent Peter Strzok’s Turn…

The previous effort at justification and damage control over the FBI counterintelligence operation to spy on presidential candidate Donald Trump was likely courtesy of FBI Asst. Director of Counterintelligence E.W. “Bill” Priestap.

The latest effort at justification comes directly from anti-Trump FBI Counterintelligence Agent Peter Strzok; claiming the ‘insurance policy’ statement was to protect candidate Donald Trump, not to defend the republic against him.  :::insert eyeroll here:::

WASHINGTON DC – An FBI agent’s text message that referred to “an insurance policy” and has been cited as evidence of bias against President Trump reportedly alluded to the investigation into Russia’s election interference and any potential ties between Trump’s campaign and Moscow.

The Wall Street Journal, citing individuals familiar Peter Strzok’s message, said the agent did not mean to indicate that there was a plan to damage Trump. Strzok’s message, instead, was intended to mean that Trump could win the election, and therefore the probe “couldn’t afford to take a more measured approach,” the newspaper said.  (read more)

…“I want to believe the path you threw out for consideration in Andy’s office—that there’s no way he gets elected—but I’m afraid we can’t take that risk. It’s like an insurance policy in the unlikely event you die before you’re 40″…

The rush to justify the actions of the 2016 Counterintelligence Operation against candidate Donald Trump is transparently motivated by congress beginning to question each of the participants.

The demoted DOJ Deputy Attorney Bruce Ohr is being questioned today, and FBI Assistant Director Andrew “Andy” McCabe is scheduled for questioning tomorrow.

Notice how the demotion of Ohr doesn’t align with the justification provided by Strzok. If there was no issue of malicious ‘intent’ against Trump, then why was Bruce Ohr -a central figure in the overall plan- disciplined for meeting with leadership of Fusion GPS Glenn Simpson before and after the election; only AFTER those connections were revealed to the public.

RESOURCES:

IG Stimulated Releases of Information:

♦Release #1 was the FBI Agent Strzok and Attorney Lisa Page story; and the repercussions from discovering their politically motivated bias in the 2015/2016 Clinton email investigation and 2016/2017 Russian Election investigation.

♦Release #2 outlined the depth of FBI Agent Strzok and FBI Attorney Page’s specific history in the 2016 investigation into Hillary Clinton to include the changing of the wording [“grossly negligent” to “extremely careless”] of the probe outcome delivered by FBI Director James Comey.

♦Release #3 was the information about DOJ Deputy Bruce Ohr being in contact with Fusion GPS at the same time as the FISA application was submitted and granted by the FISA court; which authorized surveillance and wiretapping of candidate Donald Trump; that release also attached Bruce Ohr and Agent Strzok directly to the Steele Dossier.

♦Release #4 was information that Deputy Bruce Ohr’s wife, Nellie Ohr, was an actual contract employee of Fusion GPS, and was hired by F-GPS specifically to work on opposition research against candidate Donald Trump. Both Bruce Ohr and Nellie Ohr are attached to the origin of the Christopher Steele Russian Dossier.

♦Release #5 was the specific communication between FBI Agent Strzok and FBI Attorney Page. The 10,000 text messages that included evidence of them both meeting with Asst. FBI Director Andrew McCabe to discuss the “insurance policy” against candidate Donald Trump in August of 2016.

    “why was Bruce Ohr…disciplined for meeting with leadership of Fusion GPS Glenn Simpson before and after the election”

    Ohr was disciplined for not notifying his superiors, or not following the chain of command. Prob a minor infraction.

    Sad that Priestap turned out to really be a Swamp Creature. One had such high hopes.
    Would wager the good guys are among the little people hiding in the masses of DOJ employees.

    Here is some pretty damning stuff on Mueller. That guy has to go.
    Mueller had no business going after Flynn. This report is from Sibel Edmonds. Her research is thorough and honest.

    Here is more on Mueller:

    If the media picks this up and reports honestly, Mueller (not Trump) has to be going down.

      Excuse me if someone has already posted this.

      Fox News legal analyst Gregg Jarrett is also saying Mueller’s alleged lawless acts have corrupted his probe and demand his removal.

      Special Counsel Robert Mueller is accused of acting in complete disregard for the law and must be removed. And so, too, must his entire team. There is devastating new evidence to suggest that Mueller and his staff of lawyers improperly, if not illegally, obtained tens of thousands of private documents belonging to President-elect Trump’s Presidential Transition Team (PTT). Critically, a “significant volume of privileged material” was taken by Mueller, according to the Trump transition lawyer, and then used by the special counsel team in its investigation. Mueller’s staff apparently admits this egregious violation, which the law strictly forbids. The Presidential Transition Act states that all records of transition operations are private and confidential. Under the law, the only remedy is Mueller’s dismissal from the case.

      The use by Mueller of even one privileged document can, and must, result in his disqualification from the case. Courts have frequently used their supervisory authority to disqualify prosecutors for obtaining materials protected by the attorney-client privilege. (In re Grand Jury Proceedings John Doe #462, 757 F.2d600 Granger v Peyton, 379 F.2d 709, Arnold v. Cargill Inc., No. 01-2086, 2004 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 19381.). Statutory law also demands Mueller’s removal. Pursuant to 5 C.F.R. 2635.501

        I don’t think Team Trump wants Mueller removal. They want Mueller to end it, and are demonstrating ahead of their meeting how easy it is to undermine his cases.

Their confidence, their arrogance, really, stems in large part from the fact that, if and when their crimes come to light, they can hide behind the Fifth Amendment. Perverting your right to be protected from them, they shield themselves behind your rights while violating your rights.”

    Why do the congressmen continue to accede to the demands of these criminals that their testimony be held in secret private settings instead of public forums? The public and the progressive masses have to have their noses rubbed in the stink of this failed coup-de-etat.

    Only the conservatives are going to be bound by their agreements on secrecy of sworn testimony.

    So the IG just dropped these text on the public to stir up wide-spread misunderstanding? Surely not. However, I am fuzzy on what the IG did here. They called reporters in to view a trove of texts, yes? So were the texts we have seen selected by reporters or were they picked out by the IG? I can’t remember.

    The selected texts paint a picture that counters the innocent meaning preferred by Stzork. He wanted to save American from Trump, but also wanted to protect Trump. He thought Trump had zero chance, but argued for an insurance policy. But how does Stzork support the true meaning? What was his more extreme approach? Which approach was taken?

    Does Wray think this controversy is good for the FBI?
