FBI Deputy Director Feeling the Heat

FBI Deputy Director McCabe is feeling the heat as recently released information shows key FBI agents were partisan, bias and hostile towards Trump.
FBI Deputy Director McCabe is feeling the heat as recently released information shows key FBI agents were partisan, bias and hostile towards Trump.

The Senate Judiciary chairman is calling for Andrew McCabe to be removed as deputy director of the FBI.

This comes just before he is scheduled to testify behind closed doors to the House Intelligence Committee in its Russia investigation.

McCabe has a lot of questions coming his way from the House as more and more Americans see the entire Robert Mueller investigations as a partisan, Democratic Party, Hillary Clinton fueled witch hunt to the likes our country has never witnessed.

The latest issue involves the credibility of the ongoing investigation occurred over the weekend when a lawyer for Trump’s presidential transition team sent a letter to Congress alleging that Mueller improperly obtained emails used by the Trump administration team as it prepared to take power in the transition from late 2016 to early 2017.

The Justice Department’s Office of the Inspector General is currently conducting a review of actions of the DOJ and the FBI during last year’s election and it said Saturday that the revelations about Peter Strzok and Lisa Page would be included in that review.

As of today, neither Strzok or Page have released a statement or commented publicly.

FBI Agent Peter Strzok exchanged politically partisan text messages with Lisa Page, both of whom were members of Robert Mueller’s investigative team.

The text messages expressed anti-Trump views, according to publications.

Recently, a month worth of the two FBI employees’ texts regarding their fear of a Trump victory were released to Congress.

Those texts included –

“I cannot believe Donald Trump is likely to be an actual, serious candidate for president,” Page texted Strzok on March 16, 2016.

“God,Trump is a loathsome human,” Page added in another rtext message to Stzrok.

However, the most deeply troubling text messages between the two agents occurred on August 15, 2016, well before election day.

EYE CATCHING MOMENT
Strzok tells Page, “I want to believe the path you threw out for consideration in Andy’s office” — an apparent reference to Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe — “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… “

It is this text message that has caused alarm for those in Congress (and the country) as to the intent behind FBI Agent Strzoks’ words.

And as Hillary Clinton stated on during the presidential campaign, “words matter.”

And she would know just how much Agent Strzoks’ words matter.

Peter Strzok led the investigation of Hillary Clinton’s private email server as the No. 2 official in the counterintelligence division and changed James Comey’s earlier draft language describing Clinton’s actions as “grossly negligent” to “extremely careless,”

Actually, Strzok and Page both had roles in the FBI’s investigation of Hillary Clinton’s private email server. An investigation that has raised suspicion regarding fairness from the onset.

As reported on July 27, Page wrote, “She just has to win now. I’m not going to lie, I got a flash of nervousness yesterday about Trump.”

That text message was sent after the Clinton investigation had been closed.

Days later, the FBI began investigating possible coordination between Russian officials and the Trump campaign based on what some are calling a manufactured dossier created by the Clinton campaign.

It is also worth noting FBI Deputy Director McCabe is drawing skepticism involving a conflict of interest and perhaps being biased against President Donald Trump.

The reason for these concerns involve McCabe’s wife.

In 2015 she ran for a state Senate seat in Virginia, backed in part with money from associates of Hillary Clinton.
