The terminal cancer of bias in Mueller’s investigation



It has been revealed that the lead FBI agent supervising the Hillary Clinton email scandal and the alleged Trump-Russia connection has been removed from the Mueller team for sending anti-Trump messages:

A top FBI agent at the center of both the Clinton email and Trump-Russia investigations was removed from Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s team for exchanging derogatory text messages about the president with a colleague.

Peter Strzok, a veteran FBI investigator, was shuffled off to the FBI’s human resources department by Mueller after the Justice Department’s inspector general opened an investigation into the texts, The New York Times reported on Saturday.

And according to The Washington Post, Strzok exchanged the messages with Lisa Page, an FBI lawyer who was also assigned to and later removed from Mueller’s team. Strzok and Page, who works for FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe, were reportedly having an extramarital affair.

Peter Carr, a spokesman for Mueller’s office, said that Strzok was removed from the Russia investigation as soon as the inspector general’s findings were revealed this summer.

What makes this a farce is the FBI stonewalling for the last three months:

The Post reported that Strzok and Page exchanged text messages that “expressed anti-Trump sentiments and other comments that appeared to favor Clinton.”

Word of the messages and the affair were news to Nunes, even though the committee had issued a subpoena that covered information about Strzok’s demotion more than three months ago. The committee’s broadly worded subpoena for information related to the so-called Trump dossier went to the FBI and DOJ on Aug. 24. In follow-up conversations on the scope of the subpoena, committee staff told the FBI and DOJ that it included information on the circumstances of Strzok’s reassignment.

On Oct. 11, Nunes met with deputy attorney general Rod Rosenstein. In that meeting, Nunes specifically discussed the committee’s request for information about Strzok.

In an Oct. 31 committee staff meeting with the FBI, bureau officials refused a request for information about Strzok.

On Nov. 20, the committee again requested an interview with Strzok. (Three days earlier, on November 17, Strzok met with the Senate Intelligence Committee.)

On Nov. 29, Nunes again spoke to Rosenstein, and again discussed Strzok.

On Dec. 1, the committee again requested to speak with Strzok.

After each occasion, the FBI and DOJ did nothing. Now, in what appears to be an orchestrated leak, both the Post and Times published the reason for Strzok’s demotion, along with concerns that the revelation might help President Trump. “Among federal law enforcement officials, there is great concern that exposure of the texts they exchanged may be used by the president and his defenders to attack the credibility of the Mueller probe and the FBI more broadly,” the Post reported. The Times reported that “the existence of the text messages is likely to fuel claims by Mr. Trump that he is the target of a witch hunt.”

The House Intelligence Committee is gearing up to find the FBI in contempt of Congress:

Nunes and the committee had known about Strzok’s removal for months, but not the reasons for  it, which were only revealed on Saturday in what York suggested was an “orchestrated leak” to the Times and the Post. In a furious statement on Saturday, Nunes accused the FBI of deliberately covering up political bias on the Mueller team.

“By hiding from Congress, and from the American people, documented political bias by a key FBI head investigator for both the Russia collusion probe and the Clinton email investigation, the FBI and DOJ engaged in a willful attempt to thwart Congress’ constitutional oversight responsibility,” Nunes said, as quoted by York.

Nunes has reportedly promised to take action on the citation for contempt if the FBI does not come clean by the end of December. He will likely have the backing of Speaker of the House Paul Ryan (R-WI), who has also complained about the FBI’s apparent refusal to turn over information to the committee, especially on the degree to which it relied on the discredited “Russia dossier” that was paid for by Clinton and the Democratic National Committee.

Earlier this year, Nunes stepped back from direct involvement in the committee’s Russia investigation after questions about his role in exposing the “unmasking” of U.S. citizens in intelligence reports during the last days of the Obama administration. Democrats have stalled an ethics investigation into Nunes to keep him from resuming his role in a full capacity. However, Nunes has not given up his chairmanship and still wields the subpoena power.

This stonewalling is just one sign of the cancer that permeates the FBI and Mueller’s team and it may have a great deal to do with the controversial Trump “dossier.”  Strzok was a key figure in that dossier.

House investigators told Fox News they have long regarded Strzok as a key figure in the chain of events when the bureau, in 2016, received the infamous anti-Trump “dossier” and launched a counterintelligence investigation into Russian meddling in the election that ultimately came to encompass FISA surveillance of a Trump campaign associate.

The “dossier” was a compendium of salacious and largely unverified allegations about then-candidate Trump and others around him that was compiled by the opposition research firm Fusion GPS. The firm’s bank records, obtained by House investigators, revealed that the project was funded by the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee.

Strzok may have been the person stonewalling the inquiries into the dossier:

Strzok himself briefed the committee on Dec. 5, 2016, the sources said, but within months of that session House Intelligence Committee investigators were contacted by an informant suggesting that there was “documentary evidence” that Strzok was purportedly obstructing the House probe into the dossier.

In early October, Nunes personally asked Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein – who has overseen the Trump-Russia probe since the recusal of Attorney General Jeff Sessions – to make Strzok available to the committee for questioning, sources said.

While Strzok’s removal from the Mueller team had been publicly reported in August, the Justice Department never disclosed the anti-Trump texts to the House investigators. The denial of access to Strzok was instead predicated, sources said, on broad “personnel” grounds.

It does appear that the Trump-hating Strzok was assigned to “take care of” the clinton email investigation and then “take care” of Trump:

In late July [2016], the F.B.I. opened an investigation into possible collusion between members of Mr. Trump’s campaign and Russian operatives. Besides Mr. Comey and a small team of agents, officials said, only a dozen or so people at the F.B.I. knew about the investigation. Mr. Strzok, just days removed from the Clinton case, was selected to supervise it.

This is what a cover up smells like. There’s more.

Mueller’s team is chock full of democrat supporters:

After being appointed late last month by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein to head a Special Counsel investigation into alleged collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian officials, in addition to Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election through propaganda and fake news, former FBI Director Bob Mueller has been rounding up attorneys in Washington D.C. to assemble his team.

But according to an assessment done by CNN, those hired so far are mostly Democrat donors. Two already on board gave the max amount to Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign.

Andrew McCabe, number 2 man at the FBI, is up to his eyes in conflicts of interest:

Just prior to that PAC money went into Jill McCabe’s campaign, Hillary Clinton did a campaign fundraiser event for the very PAC (Common Good VA) that would soon shovel that money into the campaign of the wife of the FBI agent was promoted as the Clinton investigation began and who within a month would be put in charge of the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails.

And then there’s James Comey. All of his integrity was destroyed when he gave hillary clinton a drive by appearance at the FBI, failed to interview her under oath, failed to record anything, and exonerated her long before the “interview.” And that’s before we get to the part in which Comey leaked classified information to WaPo. Trump is absolutely right when he speaks of a double standard at the FBI. But you heard that here already.

And we have to uncover the biggest gem of them all- was the dossier created and then used to get a FISA warrant to spy on the Trump campaign? We also still have to learn who accelerated the unmasking of the Trump campaign and why. Strzok’s hatred of Trump compromises the legitimacy of Mueller’s entire operation.

This investigation is so ridden with cancer that it demands its own investigation.

Disband and disbar every last crooked one of them, reassign every skunk in the FBI to the worst backwater towns to ride a desk, and promote any agent you can find that may still have an iota of honor..

This investigation is so ridden with cancer that it demands its own investigation.

But who will do the investigating? Is it possible to find enough people professional enough to set their personal political beliefs aside to seek the truth?

We’ve had 8 years of an administration stonewalling scandal. Trump needs to turn that around.

said it before fbi” f**ked up beyond imagination”. yes, the Nazi Mueller must go. Surprise, strzok banging page. nice work for the fbi. wonder how much the hotel cost the American taxpayer or did the office desk sufficed.

Strzok as dirty as the deep state can get so hand picked for the Trump coup.
Every Hillary Donor Ambulance chaser on the “coup team” hand picked
Entire investigation based on a fake dossier, and a false premise, there was a glitch in the Matrix, Every step taken by them to have a NWO member back in the White House failed. This was never an investigation about Russia ever, it was always a coup.
They are criminalizing the Presidential transition process.

I love how the critics are saying they are afraid Trump is going to use this proof of liberal bias within the investigation to say there is liberal bias within the investigation.

Were it not for the investigations, Michael Flynn—who accepted undisclosed payments from the Russians and Turkey—would still be head of the nation’s Defense Intelligence Agency. Paul Manafort, Carter Page, and George Papadopoulos would be likely working for the Trump administration, outside proper, lawful channels that are subject to Constitutional oversights. Without the investigations, no one would even know about the secret “back channel” meetings Jared Kushner had with the Russians (four such, at least), nor about his secret meeting with the Saudis, which took place without the knowledge of the Secretary of State. (How does Jared Kushner even have a security clearance? What, exactly, is his official, lawful position in our nation’s government that allows him to act in such a fashion?)

Mueller isn’t even responding to Trump’s public attacks on himself, his investigation, or the nation’s agencies and institutions. He’s not going to play Trump’s game. He’s going to methodically continue his investigation until the truth is revealed, and the evidence is there to back it up.


He’s going to methodically continue his investigation until the truth is revealed, and the evidence is there to back it up.

gee are they manufacturing right now like the dossier?
How much will this fake evidence co$t?There is no collusion, The President had a constitutional right to fire criminal leaker Comey, Conspiracy is a crime, collusion is not a crime, and this investigation is a coup conspiracy.

Trump’s lawyer says a president can’t technically obstruct justice. Experts say that’s fanciful.

If that premise were accepted, a president would be empowered to put himself above the reach of the law. It’s right up there with the assertion that presidential powers allow a president to pardon himself for his own illegal actions.

@Greg: Hey… where’s the collusion? Where’s the illegal activity? How many strikes do you liberals think you get? Inning’s over. You’re out. Game’s over. You lost.

It is amazing… simply FANTASTIC… to see you complain about illegal and undisclosed payments from foreign sources or security clearances. Fantastic.

For hypocrisy of that magnitude we need a new word for hypocrisy. Fantastic.

The Supreme court has told both the 9th circuit and the Obama activist Judge in hawaii they suck! The travel ban can be fully enforced. We told the UN we will choose our own immigration policy they can go skip rocks too.

@Bill… Deplorable Me, #9:

Hey… where’s the collusion? Where’s the illegal activity?

Those are the questions that Robert Mueller has been tasked with providing the answers to. He’s a competent, dedicated, and very thorough public servant. He’ll get there.

It is amazing… simply FANTASTIC… to see you complain about illegal and undisclosed payments from foreign sources or security clearances. Fantastic.

What’s astonishing is that so many people can’t seem to figure out that there’s something seriously amiss with Trump and his administration. In response to a question earlier today, he began babbling about Hillary Clinton.


In response to a question earlier today, he began babbling about Hillary Clinton.

As I said, we need a new term for hypocrisy to describe the level to which you liberals have taken it. Hillary lied to the FBI (or they simply didn’t bother to ask her the questions they came to ask) and she committed perjury ON VIDEO, under oath before Congress. She was cleared by Comey BEFORE any interviews or investigation. Bill Clinton and Lynch met to discuss how to tamp the accusations down. Comey aided and abetted Lynch’s demand to avoid calling it an “investigation”. Bill and Hillary took money from Russia as Hillary went along with the sale of US uranium with the knowledge it was going to Russia. The Podestas were acting as lobbyists for foreign governments but were not registered. But, you liberals pretend to be upset that Flynn lied about something he did that was wholly and fully legal.

How about “hypersuperhypocrisy“?

@Bill… Deplorable Me, #12:

Hillary Clinton’s administration isn’t under investigation, is it?

But, you liberals pretend to be upset that Flynn lied about something he did that was wholly and fully legal.

If everything he did was wholly and fully legal, he wouldn’t have needed to lie to the FBI about it. He’s smart enough to have known how serious that risk was. They only reason he’d lie would be to hide something he was even more worried about.

Obama warned President-elect Trump that Flynn was potential trouble, only two days after the election. Trump ignored the warning and appointed Flynn anyway.


Hillary Clinton’s administration isn’t under investigation, is it?

That’s kind of the point.

Obama warned President-elect Trump that Flynn was potential trouble, only two days after the election. Trump ignored the warning and appointed Flynn anyway.

Of course, Obama didn’t reveal they had been conducting illegal surveillance, did he? Who would take Obama’s advise on personnel? He had the worst record of picking personnel imaginable.

Flynn had his discussions AFTER Trump was elected, so… no collusion.

@Greg: Aren’t things kind of backwards here?
Usually we have a crime that a prosecutor is hired to investigate. But not this here we hire a prosecutor to go find a crime. I’m sure if they dig far enough and go back far enough they will find something on somebody. But it won’t be collusion, since collusion is not a crime. If it is please provide the federal statute for us to view.
Gee why don’t we have some local prosecutor to investigate you and your family, with unlimited resources, to find some wrongdoing somewhere? Get the idea?
I know you have a fantasy in mind but in the end you’ll be disappointed. We may end up with a kind of Scooter Libby deal in the end so Mueller can save face. But in the end Trump will still be in office.
Meanwhile at least someone is peeling the Mueller onion and it’s not NON-partisan.
I also found this interesting.

Another left wing media lie… that Deutchbank records have been subpoenaed… has been exposed. It appears the Democrats have totally given up legally and honestly winning any more elections, working to hone their skills at political coup and undermining instead. Maybe they could contact Putin, reopen the Soviet Union and use their skills there where they would be more appreciated.

Trump’s tweets are immaterial; the left is like the Islamic terrorists. It does not matter what Trump does or doesn’t do, the crybaby left is going to hate and criticize him. They hate Trump because he is Trump and not Hillary…. or Obama.

How many times has leader of the impeachment investigation been in contempt of Congress? Perhaps they should remove him, as congress is the body that impeaches.
Hey libs for just 130 bucks plus shipping
For conservatives a perfect target for the Red Rider that the kid will shoot his eye out with.

@kitt: It’s not the top of a tree where I suggest those be put. My brain has convulsions trying to imagine the level of idiot that would order such a thing.

@Bill… Deplorable Me: Goes well with a leg in fishnet stocking lamp.
