The FBI's bias has been revealed loud and clear in Peter Strzok's testimony before Congress. KrisAnne Hall discusses it at length on an interview with i24 News. Think about what is going on. Strzok and his FBI lawyer girlfriend Lisa Page were participating in internally destroying our system, and actively working to stop the election of a candidate, Donald Trump, who disagrees with their Marxist agenda.
Peter Strzok testified before two House committees, but what is even more juicy is that Lisa Page's testimony contradicts the testimony of Peter Strzok.
The purpose of calling the former FBI agent before Congress was to discuss his text messages that were extremely critical of Donald Trump during the 2016 presidential campaign, and how they may reveal compromise and applied bias in regards to the FBI investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.
Strzok claimed that the texts were simply talk, and that they were nowhere near the presidential campaign in the sense of bias by the FBI. Page contradicted Strzok in her testimony and even admitted that the texts “mean exactly what they say.”
House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., criticized Strzok’s narrow definition of bias, noting that special counsel Robert Mueller removed him from the investigative team over that bias.
“The moment special counsel Bob Mueller found out about Peter Strzok’s text and emails, he kicked him off of the investigation,” Gowdy said. “But that was a year and a half too late. The texts and emails may have been discovered in May of 2017, but the bias existed and was manifest a year and a half before that. All the way back to late 2015 and early 2016.
Gowdy also explained that Agent Strzok had Hillary Clinton winning the White House before he finished investigating her. Agent Strzok had Donald Trump impeached before he even started investigating him. That is bias.
In the texts was the following exchange:
Page asked regarding Trump, “He’s not ever going to become president, right? Right?!”
Strzok responded, “No. No, he’s not. We’ll stop it.”
Was that a promise of doing whatever it took to stop the Trump Train using FBI tools and the manipulating ongoing investigations?
Early in the hearing, Strzok did not answer a question about how many witnesses he interviewed in the investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election.
House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., reminded Strzok that he was “under subpoena and required to answer the question.”
Not only was Strzok willing to use bias in investigations to do what he could to stop Trump, he was willing to be guilty of contempt to keep from answering to Congress.
“Your testimony is essential to this hearing and to our oversight and information-gathering functions with regard to the actions taken and decisions made by the Department of Justice and the FBI in 2016 and 2017. I am specifically directing you to answer the question in response to our subpoena,” Goodlatte said. “In a moment, we will continue with the hearing, but based on your refusal to answer the question, at the conclusion of the day, we will be recessing the hearing, and you will subject to recall to allow the committee to consider a contempt citation.”
Strzok's hate for Trump, and his "right-wing" supporters, led him to make vile statements on his texts, such as in one of Strzok’s texts from Aug. 26, 2016 where he wrote of Trump supporters: “Just went to a southern Virginia Walmart. I could SMELL the Trump support.”
Originally, Lisa Page was refusing to comply with the House subpoena, threatening to be in contempt, herself.
The conspiracy runs much deeper than only the FBI. A top public-interest law group, Judicial Watch, filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit against the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) in an attempt to clarify other parts of the overall conspiracy to sabotage the presidential campaign (remember, the Democrats say that sabotage was against Hillary Clinton). In the case of Judicial Watch's inquiry, they are seeking communications with former Senator Harry Reid (D-NV) and his staff regarding the anti-Trump ‘dirty dossier’ which was funded by Clinton and her campaign minions and the Democratic National Committee (DNC).
Senator Harry Reid, who served on a number of Senate committees, reportedly believed then-Obama’s CIA Director John Brennan was leaking information about Trump and the alleged links between the Trump campaign and the Russian government in order to make public accusations.
On August 27, 2016, Reid wrote a letter to Comey accusing President Trump’s campaign of colluding with the Russian government.
The Judicial Watch FOIA lawsuit was filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia after the CIA failed to respond to a February 12, 2018, FOIA request for: All records of communications, including but not limited to letters, emails, text messages, and instant chats, between former CIA Director John Brennan and/or officials in the CIA Director’s Office on the one hand, and Senator Harry Reid and/or members of Senator Reid’s staff on the other hand, regarding, concerning or relating to the Christopher Steele “dossier” and/or alleged “collusion” between the Trump presidential campaign and Russia.
CIA Chief Brennan himself has revealed his deep-seated animus toward President Trump and used his media platform as an MSNBC commentator to repeatedly attack the president.
When President Trump tweeted about FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe’s firing in March 2018, Brennan retweeted and responded: “When the full extent of your venality, moral turpitude, and political corruption becomes known, you will take your rightful place as a disgraced demagogue in the dustbin of history. You may scapegoat Andy McCabe, but you will not destroy America…America will triumph over you.”
In response to the president’s tweet that former FBI director Comey is a “proven leaker and liar,” Brennan retweeted and responded in April 2018 that President Trump’s administration is a failing “kakistocracy.”
“Obama CIA Director John Brennan’s unhinged attacks on President Trump help explain the Obama administration spying abuses targeting Trump,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “The mere fact that we had to file this lawsuit shows the CIA has something to hide on Obama-era abuses and collusion with Democrats in Congress to target then-candidate Trump,.” Fitton added.
In the end, the reality is, the Democrats, be they politicians, or members of the FBI or CIA, were willing to do anything, legally or illegally, to stop the election of Donald Trump as President of the United States because, in the end, a Trump presidency would basically put a stick in the spokes of the Democrat Party agenda, and dismantle a century old plan to move America even closer to utopian Marxism controlled by the Democrat Party in a single-party oligarchy.
