For almost four months, the FBI, the Justice Department, and worst of all, Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s office have been keeping a secret that could drastically effect the Russia investigation. One of the top FBI agents, Peter Strzok, who was overseeing the investigation, spent his spare time exchanging pro-Hillary Clinton and anti-President Trump text messages with an FBI lawyer, who happened to also be his mistress.
Due to this weekends revelations about Mueller’s team, it has been discovered that many of the prosecutors made campaign contributions to many Democratic political candidates, including Hillary Clinton. Mueller’s lawyers involved in four cases against Trump associates, are Democratic donors, according to the Daily Caller.
Strzok’s discovered text messages with Lisa Page, an FBI lawyer who also worked on the Russia investigation, is the most glaring piece of anti-Trump evidence in the Mueller investigation so far. Strzok was put on the fledgling investigation in July 2016, which then suddenly picked up speed.
Former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page wants some answers. He told TheDC on Sunday that he is “curious…whether [Strzok’s] fingerprints” are on the secret surveillance warrant that was taken out against him in September 2016.
According to the anti-Trump Steele Dossier, Page is accused of being the Trump campaign’s collusion contact with the Kremlin, a charge he vehemently denies.
Strzok’s departure from Mueller’s squad, reported in August, puzzled reporters covering the Russia investigation. No plausible explanation was ever given, keeping Congress in the dark as well. For months, requests for interviews with Strzok by the House Intelligence Committee chairman Devin Nunes have been ignored by the DOJ and the FBI.
“This is part of a months-long pattern by the DOJ and FBI of stonewalling and obstructing this Committee’s oversight work, particularly oversight of their use of the Steele dossier,” Nunes said in a statement on Saturday.
