Zero Hedge: Lisa Page and Peter Strzok, the reported FBI lovebirds, are the poster children for the next “Don’t Text and Investigate” public service ads airing soon at an FBI office near you.
Their extraordinary texting affair on their government phones has given the FBI a black eye, laying bare a raw political bias brought into the workplace that agents are supposed to check at the door when they strap on their guns and badges.
It is no longer in dispute that they held animus for Donald Trump, who was a subject of their Russia probe, or that they openly discussed using the powers of their office to “stop” Trump from becoming president. The only question is whether any official acts they took in the Russia collusion probe were driven by those sentiments.
The Justice Department’s inspector general is endeavoring to answer that question.
For any American who wants an answer sooner, there are just five words, among the thousands of suggestive texts Page and Strzok exchanged, that you should read.
That passage was transmitted on May 19, 2017. “There’s no big there there,” Strzok texted.
Opinion: There never was anything to investigate Donald Trump for and the FBI knew it before Mueller and his Democrat team of investigators began the witch hunt.
I am convinced that is what the president meant when he said he “doesn’t see any reason why” Russia would be behind election meddling”. I think he knew the Obama-appointed spy agencies were behind it and he walked it back to calm down the furor.
I am getting nervous typing this.
