“The Swamp” or not “The Swamp,” that is the question.

I find it funny that we have “swamp rats” out there, running around, trying to portray President Trump as part of “the swamp.”

They are absolutely shameless.

aobs 11

Please, think about it.

Here we have lifelong Washington bureaucrats, lifelong establishment politicians and their mindless propagandists trying to insinuate that President Trump represents “the swamp.”

Seriously?!

President Trump, who was not even a politician until 2016?!

President trump, who won the 2016 election with virtually no support from anyone in Washington, virtually no support from anyone in politics, or virtually any support from anyone in the media?!

Does that sound like someone who is a “swamp rat?”

Does that sound like someone who “the swamp” supports?

The answer is NO and NO.

What we have here is just another example of the old Nazi propaganda strategy of accusing your opponents of that which you are doing, or identifying them as you should be identified.

aobs 10

What is our latest example of “the swamp” rearing its ugly head?

According to Joshua Nelson for Fox News, “White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham said on Tuesday that calls for the resignation of Attorney General [AG] William Barr from former Justice Department employees are not ‘surprising’ given the constant opposition to President Trump’s agenda.”

‘“It’s been proven time and time again. There are obstructionists all across this government who are working against the president,’ Grisham told, ‘Fox & Friends.’”

There’s no question about that, Stephanie.

aobs 2

We’ve seen mystery “whistleblowers,” hostile witnesses, hostile unnamed sources, and unsupportive bureaucrats galore permeating the departments and staffs within the executive branch.

aobs 4

“Grisham’s comments came after more than 1,100 former Justice Department employees signed an online petition urging Barr to resign and praising the four prosecutors who withdrew from the case of former Trump adviser Roger Stone after what they perceived as interference from the White House, Politico reported.”

And how do you communicate or get communication from “over 1,100 former Justice Department employees” in a matter of days?

Why, you just access your friendly “swamp” database…, shoot out a couple emails…, and shazam…, you’ve got an on-line petition urging AG Barr to resign for no defensible reason at all.

‘“It didn’t surprise me. A lot of those [petitioners] are career [employees]. There are many people who hailed AG Barr when we first appointed him and he’s been doing a great job,’ Grisham said.”

“Signatures for the petition include recent Justice Department employees and some dating back to the Eisenhower and Kennedy administrations, according to the news outlet. The signatures were gathered by Protect Democracy, a nonprofit legal group that had also gathered signatures for a letter claiming Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia report presented enough evidence to charge Trump with obstruction of justice.”

aobs 5

Protect Democracy Group, huh.

The Protect Democracy Group obviously has access to that “swampy” database.

From “Protect Democracy’s own website: “Our democracy is facing threats we haven’t seen in generations. Protect Democracy is a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization dedicated to fighting attacks, from at home and abroad, on our right to free, fair, and fully informed self-government. Together, armed with our Constitution and the rule of law, we can fight back and protect our democracy from those who would do it harm.”

If you dig a little deeper you’ll find that “Protect Democracy” is so far from “nonpartisan” that it isn’t funny.  Their statement is just a ruse to allow them to enjoy a tax-free status.

We really need to do away with this tax-free status for political groups…, but that is a different topic for another day.

In reality, “Protect Democracy” is just another anti-America, anti-Trump, pro-democrat, pro-socialism, group, used by the left to spread its poisonous propaganda.

‘“The president has made clear his position on many different cases but he leaves AG Barr to do his work. He’s made it clear that the two things are separate but the president will always, always tell the American people what his opinion is,’ Grisham said, adding she has heard nothing about Barr potentially stepping down.”

“Grisham said that it is just another example of the ‘constant barrage of corruption that goes against the president.’”

Yes, folks…, “the swamp” wants AG Barr to resign because of his egregious capitulations with The President, which really don’t amount to anything at all when compared to President Obama’s Attorneys General, Eric Holder and Loretta Lynch.

David Keene of The Washington Times wrote, “President Barack Obama’s attorney general who once described himself as his president’s “wing man” showed up on television over the weekend to brag that unlike [former] Attorney General Jeff Sessions, he had the pleasure of serving a president ‘I did not have to protect.’ The man is either suffering from early onset dementia or lying to rewrite history!”

aobs 6

“As those outside the confines of the Democrat Party might remember, Eric Holder has the distinction of being the only attorney general in history ever held in contempt of Congress. The charges stemmed from his stonewalling and lying to Congress as he scrambled to keep investigators away from any evidence that might link a major Obama administration scandal directly to the White House.”

“Maybe that’s what a president’s ‘wing man’ does and Mr. Obama certainly got protection from Mr. Holder whenever he needed it. Mr. Holder has actually always been prone to confusing loyalty to the law and to his boss for decades.”

aobs 9

I don’t recall over 1,100 former or current Justice Department employees signing any petitions against Holder, or the “Protect Democracy” Group crying about President Obama’s abuse of power.

They’re nonpartisan though…, of course.

aobs 8

These political hacks seem to be saying that an Attorney General, whose boss is The President, cannot communicate at all with that same president.

This has not been the case throughout history, but it is apparently the case regarding President Trump and his AG.

President John F. Kennedy’s AG was his own brother, Robert!  Do you think these two ever discussed anything?!

aobs 7

Do you think Robert Kennedy had his brother’s back?

Again…, please…, let’s take a step back from this democrat alternate reality world and deal with precedent, truth and reality.

WINNING!

For “The Deep State,” an apology seems to be a “get out of jail free card!” 

Yes…, for “The Deep State,” democrats and liberals in general, a disingenuous apology seems to be a “get out of jail free card!”

adoj 1

At least in their eyes, the eyes of their “Deep State” comrades, and the eyes of their propagandistic fake news media conspirators.

An apology, of course, is only begrudgingly performed when the evidence against the “swamp rat” in question is SO overwhelming that the preferred strategy of lying, denying and pleading ignorance cannot be employed.

Republicans, conservatives, and all the rest of the law-abiding peons, however, are expected to operate under the laws as they were written, and receive punishment accordingly.

adoj 2

Case in point…, an article by Ronn Blitzer of Fox News, titled, “DOJ recommends maximum sentence for former GOP Representative.”

You will NEVER see or hear the words “DOJ recommends maximum sentence” before any liberal bureaucrat’s name or any liberal politician’s name.

In this case, ‘“The Government believes that a sentence at the top end of the Guidelines range is necessary in order to satisfy the objectives of Title 18 United States Code, Section 3553(a), and in particular to promote respect for the law, to provide just punishment for the offense, and to achieve general deterrence,’ prosecutors with the Southern District of New York said in a letter to U.S. District Court Judge Vernon S. Broderick.”

So in other words, they’re saying that there are cases where you don’t need to “promote respect for the law,” “provide just punishment,” and “achieve general deterrence?”

It seems like that’s what they’re saying.

adoj 8

And in fact, we’ve seen many cases where our “justice” system IS NOT promoting respect for the law, IS NOT providing just punishment, and IS NOT achieving general deterrence…, especially where liberal bureaucrats and liberal politicians are concerned.

Do the names Lois Lerner, Loretta Lynch, Hillary Clinton, Peter Strzok, Lisa Page, Rod Rosenstein, James Clapper, John Brennan, Andrew McCabe, and James Comey ring a bell?

adoj 7

adoj 9

adoj 6

Another such case is the case of Natalie Mayflower Sours Edwards, a former top Treasury Department official.

When someone is using three last names, that’s a good tip-off that we are dealing with someone who is extra pathetically liberal.

adoj 5

According to Gregg Re of Fox News, “A former top Treasury Department official pleaded guilty Monday to conspiracy for leaking confidential banking reports associated with members of the Trump campaign, following her dramatic arrest in October 2018 as she toted a flash drive full of sensitive documents.”

“Natalie Edwards, 41, entered the plea in Manhattan federal court, where U.S. District Judge Gregory H. Woods set sentencing for June 9. Although the conspiracy charge carried a potential penalty of up to five years in prison, Edwards signed a plea deal with prosecutors that recommended a potential prison sentence of zero to six months.”

A plea deal you say?

What exactly is she pleaing?

She doesn’t seem to have much leverage here.

She must be pleaing that her special liberal privilege be recognized.

“Edwards was a senior adviser at Treasury’s Financial Crimes Enforcement Network, also known as FinCEN. Prosecutors said her crime began in October 2017 and continued for a year, with Edwards sending a BuzzFeed News reporter numerous Suspicious Activity Reports (“SARs”).

Oh…, she was a senior adviser at Treasury’s Financial Crimes Enforcement Network!

Beautiful!

She should be held to an even higher standard here then.

“As law enforcement swooped in, she was carrying a government-issued USB flash drive containing not only thousands of SARs, but also ‘highly sensitive material relating to Russia, Iran, and the terrorist group known as the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant,’ prosecutors said.”

Am I just stupid or does this seem like a pretty serious crime?

‘“I am sorry for what I have done and I apologize to you, your honor, and the court,’ Edwards said.”

THERE IT IS!

She played her “get out of jail free card” apology!

Also notice she’s apologizing to the judge and the court and not to the victims of her crime, her department, or the American people.

“Her arrest came on the heels of other high-profile, leak-related prosecutions under the Trump administration, which had pledged to go on the offensive against leakers whom the president has called ‘traitors and cowards.’”

Exactly, Mr. President.  I would classify her as a coward and a traitor as well.

Traitors should not receive bogus plea deals.

In another case, we have the F.B.I. (Director, Christopher Wray) apologizing to the Court for “botching surveillance of a Trump adviser,” and “pledging to fix their [the F.B.I.’s] procedures.”

According to Charlie Savage of The New York Times, “The F.B.I. acknowledged serious errors and omissions in the facts it put forward for wiretap applications targeting a former Trump campaign adviser.”

“[The] F.B.I. told a secretive court on Friday that it was increasing training and oversight for officials who work on national security wiretap applications in response to problems uncovered by a scathing inspector general report last month about botched surveillance targeting a former Trump campaign adviser.”

“A secretive court?”

What exactly is a “secretive court?”

I’m guessing “secretive” means “rigged” in this instance.

‘“The F.B.I. has the utmost respect for this court and deeply regrets the errors and omission identified by’ the inspector general, wrote the F.B.I. director, Christopher A. Wray, in a statement included with the filing. He called the conduct described by the report “unacceptable and unrepresentative of the F.B.I. as an institution.’”

Senate FBI Director

I’m sure you are very appreciative of this liberal leaning court, rigged in your favor, Mr. Wray…, and Oh…, THERE IT IS…, he played their “get out of jail free card” apology!

Excuse me Mr. Wray…, but you are so full of sh#t I can smell you a million miles away.

Believe me my friends…, these “Deep Staters” have no respect for their employer, the American people, and they think we are all idiots who will continue to keep falling for this crap.

Well…, it’s a new day Mr. Wray.

Our eyes are wide open now, and we recognize you people for what you are…, enemies of our country, and enemies of “We The People.”

“Under FISA — a law for surveillance aimed at monitoring suspected spies and terrorists, as opposed to ordinary criminals — the government must convince a judge that an American is probably an agent of a foreign power. Because the FISA court hears only from the government, and what it says is never shown to defense lawyers, the Justice Department says it has a duty to be candid and tell judges every relevant fact in its possession.”

Oh, sure, why wouldn’t we believe that would happen?!

“But the Justice Department’s inspector general, Michael E. Horowitz, uncovered that the F.B.I. had cherry-picked and misstated evidence about the Trump adviser, Carter Page, when seeking permission to wiretap him in October 2016 and in 2017 renewal applications.”

In all there were 17 “serious errors and omissions in the facts” regarding the FISA warrant applications.

17!!!

That, Mr. Wray, raises the bar here from extreme incompetence to a treasonous disregard and manipulation of the law.

We are all painfully aware of our two-tiered justice system…, us being on the lower tier.

Apologies are not going to suffice here.

Our last hope of seeing any justice served, at least for a while, is U.S. Attorney John Durham and his investigation into all of this FISA stuff.

His report should be submitted to Attorney General Barr before this summer.., hopefully along with his recommendation of criminal charges for more than a few of these treasonous individuals.

I’ll be very disappointed if we just continue to see more of the same…, more apologies and more “get out of jail free cards.”

I’ll keep you posted.

Lisa “the lover” Page is suing the FBI and the DOJ.  Well isn’t that special!

Yes folks…, Lisa (the lying, treasonous, adulteress) Page is suing her own deep state friends at the FBI and the DOJ.

afbi 1

How the world turns!

Gregg Re of Fox News reports, “Lisa Page sues FBI and DOJ, citing ‘cost of therapy’ after Trump mocked her salacious text messages.”

afbi 10

Please refer to my previous blog, “Lisa “one of ‘the treasonous lovers’” Page is outraged at President Trump?! From December 3, 2019.

https://mrericksonrules.com/2019/12/03/lisa-one-of-the-treasonous-lovers-page-is-outraged-at-president-trump/

“Former FBI lawyer Lisa Page is suing the FBI and Department of Justice, alleging that the government’s publication of her salacious text messages with anti-Trump ex-FBI agent Peter Strzok constituted a breach of the Federal Privacy Act.”

afbi 6

“In the complaint filed Tuesday, the 39-year-old Page said she suffered numerous damages, including a ‘permanent loss of earning capacity due to reputational damage’ and ‘the cost of therapy to cope with unwanted national media exposure and harassment’ caused by the disclosure.”

What was the extent of the damage suffered by President Trump as a result of your treasonous behavior, Lisa?

Just the fact that you have the nerve to sue the government because of their reaction and President Trump’s reaction to your treasonous coup, with your co-conspirator “lover,” Peter Stzrok, exhibits your perceived and twisted level of entitlement and privilege.

afbi 7

“Page’s complaint also sought reimbursement for ‘the cost of childcare during and transportation to multiple investigative reviews and appearances before Congress,’ the ‘cost of paying a data-privacy service to protect her personal information,’ and attorney’s fees.”

“On Dec. 12, 2017, Page said in the complaint, ‘DOJ and/or FBI officials disclosed’ her sensitive text messages ‘directly to a select group of reporters to ensure they would become public.’ Page alleged that after discovery, she would be able to prove that senior officials knew they were violating the law, and that their conduct was ‘willful and intentional.’”

Oh…, you mean they leaked information to the press like your “lover” did as part of the treasonous coup against President Trump?

Karma’s a bitch, ain’t it?

afbi 8

“Page’s lawsuit lamented that [President] Trump’s tweets about Page’s texts ‘have been retweeted and favorited millions of times.’ Trump, Page went on, has ‘targeted’ her ‘by name in more than 40 tweets and dozens of interviews, press conferences, and statements from the White House, fueling unwanted media attention that has radically altered her day-to-day life.’”

Awwwww.

afbi 3

That’s typically what people do when they’re attacked, Lisa…, they defend themselves.

The plain and simple truth is “you started it.”

Apparently your slutty and treasonous brain was writing checks it wasn’t prepared to cash.

afbi 2

“She argued that federal law prevents agencies from disclosing personal records about individuals ‘unless an exception applies or the individual who is the subject of the record consents in writing to the disclosure.’”

I would say plotting a treasonous coup against The President of the United States would constitute an “exception.”

afbi 4

“Page’s lawsuit claimed that there was no public-interest justification for the government’s leak.”

Au contraire “lover girl!”

There is tons of “public interest” regarding you and your treasonous co-conspirator, who was also your illicit “lover!’

Are you kidding?!

This whole thing is better than watching “Game of Thrones!”

We all just can’t wait for the conclusion when you and “lover” boy are “perp walked” into custody!

“In a separate bombshell report issued Monday, Horowitz [Inspector General Michael Horowitz] extensively faulted the FBI’s secretive efforts to surveil a former Trump aide, which involved both Page and Strzok.”

afbi 11

Well there you go…, and there’s more coming where that came from.

“Page’s suit will likely face an immediate challenge from the government. The Supreme Court has previously ruled that suits against the government under the Privacy Act for mental and emotional distress are not immune from the doctrine of sovereign immunity, which limits the right of individuals to sue the federal government.”

Taking this into consideration, Lisa “the treasonous lover” Page must have an ulterior motive for filing the lawsuit…, since she has virtually no chance of winning it.

Perhaps she is trying to muster up as much sympathy for herself as she can before she get indicted.

afbi 5

“Her lawsuit does not contain an apology for her conduct, and she has long maintained that her anti-Trump views — which she shared with Strzok using FBI phones even as the two played key roles in the Hillary Clinton and Russia probes — did not affect her official duties.”

Of course not!

Not when your “official duties” included trying to take down a duly elected president!

“Strzok, a veteran counterintelligence agent who led FBI investigations into Clinton’s use of a private email server and ties between the Trump campaign and Russia, was removed from Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s team after his anti-Trump texts with Page came to light.  He was [FIRED!] from the FBI last August.

afbi 12

“Lisa Page left the FBI in May of 2018.”

“Like sands through the hourglass, so go the days of our lives.”

WINNING!

Lisa “one of ‘the treasonous lovers’” Page is outraged at President Trump?!

That’s really a good one!

SHE’S annoyed at the President…, and she thinks someone should care!

Here we have a perfect example of the privilege and status these deep state vermin feel entitled to.

Here we have Lisa “one of ‘the treasonous lovers’” Page announcing she is upset about President Trump’s comments about her…, just because she and her treasonous lover, Peter Strzok, both high level FBI “swamp scum,” were plotting how they were going to take down a duly elected president…, that’s all.

Is she serious?

alisap 15

She’s lucky she’s not in jail, and she should take a lead from her treasonous lover, and just shut her dirty little mouth.

alisap 14

Gregg Re of Fox News reports that, “Lisa Page breaks silence, saying Trump’s ‘fake orgasm’ forced her to speak out.”

‘“Honestly, his [President Trump’s] demeaning fake orgasm was really the straw that broke the camel’s back,’ said Page.”

“With those striking words in an interview published late Sunday, Lisa Page, the ex-FBI lawyer who carried on an extramarital affair with former FBI head of counterintelligence Peter Strzok as the two exchanged anti-Trump text messages, said she was breaking her silence.”

alisap 6

alisap 7

Having heard all of The President’s rally speeches, I’m not sure where she’s getting this “fake orgasm” stuff from.

This must be something (fake orgasms) that she just naturally equates to her extramarital lover, Peter Strzok.

“The 39-year-old Page was referring to Trump’s comments about her and Strzok at an October rally. During the event, Trump performed a passionate, dramatic reading of Strzok and Page’s August 2016 text messages, including Strzok’s conspicuous promise to Page that ‘we’ll stop’ Trump from becoming president. At the time, Strzok was overseeing the Hillary Clinton email investigation and the probe into the Trump campaign.”

alisap 1

“At one point, Trump screamed out, ‘I love you, Lisa! I love you so much! Lisa, she’s [Hillary] going to win one-hundred-million-to-nothing. But just in case she doesn’t win, we’ve got an insurance policy!’”

Personally, I think it is very big of President Trump to just be making a joke of it all.  Perhaps he is just biding his time and waiting for the Inspector General’s (IG’s) report to be released.

In either case, President Trump’s rendition of “the lovers’” conversation is hilarious!

https://youtu.be/qsWwNOGm9Bo

Too funny!!!

Too funny…, but nothing close to orgasmic!

I have no problem calling Strzok and Page treasonous conspirators and traitors to our country and our American democracy.

alisap 3

“Page spoke exclusively to ‘The Daily Beast’ Sunday in a highly sympathetic profile authored by Molly Jong-Fast [a noted Trump-hater].”

How nice of you to be so sympathetic, Molly.  In over three years, has even one “highly sympathetic” article been published by you or your liberal friends concerning President Trump, his family, or anyone involved with him?

How about just a “sympathetic” article?

A mildly sympathetic article?

How about just an even handed article?

The answers are no, no, no…, and NO!

“In the interview, Page said Trump’s remarks had forced her to confront the president publicly.”

Really?

‘“I had stayed quiet for years hoping it would fade away, but instead it got worse,’ Page said. ‘It had been so hard not to defend myself, to let people who hate me control the narrative. I decided to take my power back.’”

Ohhh…, it was sooo hard!

You think it’s bad now, Lisa?

Just wait.

And what “power” do you perceive you ever had that you can take back now?

Picture me just shaking my head.

FBI Director Wray And Justice IG Horowitz Testify At Senate Hearing On FBI Report

alisap 10

“A widely anticipated new report from DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz into possible FBI misconduct is expected to be released Dec. 9.  Horowitz has reportedly found that an unidentified lower-level FBI lawyer falsified a key document used to obtain a secret surveillance warrant against a former Trump adviser.  But, Page claimed that Trump’s ‘fake orgasm,’ and not the pending IG report, was the reason she decided to come forward.”

Of course not!

Don’t you know everything is Trump’s fault in liberal la la land?!

“Page continued: ‘It’s like being punched in the gut. My heart drops to my stomach when I realize he has tweeted about me again.”

Poor Lisa.  Imagine how The President felt when he saw the treasonous texts between you and your treasonous extramarital FBI lover.

alisap 4

“The president of the United States is calling me names to the entire world.  He’s demeaning me and my career. It’s sickening.’”

Oh, Lisa…, the only thing that’s “sickening” here is the behavior by you and your treasonous extramarital lover. Let’s just get that straight.

Your “career” is a disgrace, and your behavior on the job was disgraceful as well.

Perhaps we can ask Mrs. Strzok or Mr. Page about their perspectives on the matter?

“Separately, Page tweeted, ‘I’m done being quiet.’ In her interview, Page went on to call the president’s remarks ‘intimidating.’”

‘“But it’s also very intimidating because he’s still the president of the United States,’ Page said. ‘And when the president accuses you of treason by name, despite the fact that I know there’s no fathomable way that I have committed any crime at all, let alone treason, he’s still somebody in a position to actually do something about that. To try to further destroy my life. It never goes away or stops, even when he’s not publicly attacking me.’”

Your level of confusion and lunacy is impressive, Lisa.

For being an FBI lawyer, your understanding of the law seems pretty questionable.

And you should be “intimidated” and worried, being the treasonous piece of deep state scum you are.

“The president’s attacks, Page said, affected her day-to-day life.”

Oh really?

Again…, perhaps, Lisa, you and your “treasonous extramarital lover” should not have plotted to take down a duly elected president?

Perhaps then your day-to-day life would not have been affected as much?

Ya think?

‘“I’m someone who’s always in my head anyway – so now otherwise normal interactions take on a different meaning,’ Page complained. ‘Like, when somebody makes eye contact with me on the Metro, I kind of wince, wondering if it’s because they recognize me, or are they just scanning the train like people do? It’s immediately a question of friend or foe? Or if I’m walking down the street or shopping and there’s somebody wearing Trump gear or a MAGA hat, I’ll walk the other way or try to put some distance between us because I’m not looking for conflict. Really, what I wanted most in this world is my life back.’”

Wow.

So, you really feel like you’re some kind of victimized heroine who played no part in her own demise?

You actually appear more like a paranoid liberal idiot to me.

“Horowitz, the DOJ inspector general, noted in an initial report last year that Strzok and Page’s anti-Trump texts were ‘not only indicative of a biased state of mind but, even more seriously, implies a willingness to take official action to impact the presidential candidate’s electoral prospects.’”

alisap 13

That, I would say, would qualify as some sort of illegality…, wouldn’t you say, Mrs. Page?

I mean you’re the lawyer!

“Page said that when internal DOJ investigators said she was under investigation for anti-Trump text messages, she had no idea what they were talking about — and maintained, as Strzok has, that she is capable of separating her personal life from work.”

“No idea what they were talking about?”

No idea whatsoever!

Actually, she means she had “no idea” that all of her treasonous and extramarital texts would be exposed and accessible.

‘“At the end of July in 2017, I am informed by the DOJ Inspector General’s office that I’m under investigation for political text messages and honestly, I have no idea what they’re talking about,’ Page said. ‘I have no recollection. And initially they’re very coy about it. They don’t tell me much about it. I don’t have the first clue what they’re talking about. What I do know is that my text messages will reveal that I had previously had an affair. I’m overwhelmed by dread and embarrassment at the prospect that OIG investigators, Andy [McCabe], and my colleagues, now know or could learn about this deeply personal secret.’”

“I have no recollection!”

This means she doesn’t want to have any “recollection.”

This means she shouldn’t have to have any “recollection.”

And she wouldn’t have to of had any “recollection” if Hillary had won.

Yes folks…, life in the swamp would have remained good for Page and her “lover,” Peter Strzok…, if only Hillary had won.

“Last month, the Department of Justice released documents outlining a slew of ‘security violations’ and flagrantly ‘unprofessional conduct’ by Peter Strzok — including his alleged practice of keeping sensitive FBI documents on his unsecured personal electronic devices, even as his wife gained access to his cellphone and discovered evidence that he was having an affair with Page.”

“Although Strzok claimed to have ‘double deleted’ sensitive FBI materials from his personal devices, his wife nonetheless apparently found evidence of his affair on his cellphone — including photographs and a hotel reservation ostensibly used for a ‘romantic encounter.’ Strzok didn’t consent to turning over the devices for review, according to the DOJ, even as he acknowledged using Apple’s iMessage service for some FBI work.”

alisap 2

‘“[My wife] has my phone. Read an angry note I wrote but didn’t send you. That is her calling from my phone. She says she wants to talk to [you]. Said we were close friends nothing more,’ one of Strzok’s text to Page read, according to the filing.”

“Your wife left me a vm [voicemail]. Am I supposed to respond? She thinks we’re having an affair. Should I call and correct her understanding? Leave this to you to address?’ Page responded. Strzok’s wife allegedly threatened to send Page’s husband some of the photographs from Strzok’s phone.”

“Strzok then wrote, ‘I don’t know. I said we were close friends and nothing more. She knows I sent you flowers, I said you were having a tough week.’”

Oh what a tangled web we weave!

What can you say?  Liars gonna lie and cheaters gonna cheat!

We are a long way from the end of hearing about “the treasonous lovers,” Peter Strzok and Lisa Page.

Stay tuned!

“Brennan and Clapper sittin’ in a tree, P-L-E-A-D-I-N-G (the fifth)…, first comes lying, then comes spying…, then comes Brennan and Clapper crying!”

According to Gregg Re and Ed Henry of Fox News, “U.S. Attorney John Durham’s ongoing probe into potential FBI and Justice Department misconduct in the run-up to the 2016 election through the spring of 2017 has transitioned into a full-fledged criminal investigation, two sources familiar with the investigation told Fox News.”

atreason 16

“One source added that DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s upcoming report on alleged FBI surveillance abuses against the Trump campaign will shed light on why Durham’s probe has become a criminal inquiry.  Horowitz announced on Thursday his report would be available to the public soon, with ‘few’ redactions.”

“The investigation’s new status means Durham can subpoena witnesses, file charges, and impanel fact-finding grand juries.”

atreason 14

“Sources also told Fox News that Durham was ‘very interested’ to question former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper and former CIA Director John Brennan.”

atreason 3

It has also been recently reported that all of these un-elected, deep state, scumbags have started to “lawyer up.”

When Trump supporters were chanting “DRAIN THE SWAMP!” during his rallies, this is exactly what we were talking about!

Thank you Sir for keeping another one of your campaign promises here.

atreason 6

And just think…, if Hillary Clinton had won, we would have never learned about any of this.

Can you imagine how popular she is among all of these “swamp monsters” who are being dragged out into the sunlight thanks in part to her ineptness?

The problem is none of these treasonous vermin can throw each other under the bus without harming themselves as well.

It’s a beautiful thing.  When one goes down they will all go down.

This is one of the reasons why the democrats are SOOOO desperate to keep their illegitimate “impeachment inquiry” active, so as to give the “liberal propaganda, fake news media” something to focus on as opposed to all of this treasonous and illegal behavior by the democrats.

“Brennan and Clapper [and let’s not forget James Comey] were at the helm… when an unverified and largely discredited dossier, written by British ex-spy Christopher Steele and funded by the Hillary Clinton campaign and Democratic National Committee, was used to help justify a secret surveillance warrant against former Trump adviser Carter Page in the run-up to the 2016 election.”

This “secret surveillance warrant” then gave the Obama Administration, the Clinton campaign and our mislead intelligence services carte blanche access into spying on the entire Trump campaign.

“The FBI apparently obscured the fact that the Clinton campaign and DNC funded the dossier in its warrant application, telling the secret court only that the dossier was prepared at the behest of an unidentified presidential campaign.”

The FBI then “doubled down” by lying in its original FISA application and subsequent renewals.  The FBI intentionally lied to the FISA court about Steele’s dossier not being the direct source for a Yahoo News article implicating Carter Page in Russian collusion.

These were all lies, it seems, the “esteemed” FISA court was more than willing to accept.

Have you noticed the FISA court has not seemed too distraught over the fact that they were intentionally (and it appears, willingly) mislead.

It’s all one disgusting, swampy, hot mess.  But that’s the way these swamp rats like it. The more convoluted and confusing the better.  All the better for them to weasel their way out of any accountability and any potential wrong doing.

Becket Adams of The Washington Examiner says, regarding John Brennan, “Lastly, and maybe this is a little petty, but I really don’t have the time or energy for all these piety lectures from a known liar and sneak. As I’ve noted before, we’re not so fallen a people that we deserve these sermons from an ex-CIA director whose chief qualities are being a bald-faced liar and a drone war enthusiast.”

Ouch!

atreason 20

“From spying on the U.S. Senate, to lying repeatedly about spying on the U.S. Senate, to supporting torture programs until they were no longer politically expedient, to lying about drone war kills, Brennan would do better to leave the ethics lectures to the ethical.”

Double ouch!

Debra Heine, of the American Greatness website, says, “During an interview with Fox News’ Maria Bartiromo Sunday morning, Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) suggested that former CIA director John Brennan lied under oath to Congress in May 2017.”

It also seems clear he lied on other occasions as well.

There are supposed to be penalties for lying to Congress.

Section 1621 of the U.S. Code stipulates that anyone who “willfully and contrary to such oath states or subscribes any material matter which he does not believe to be true” is guilty of perjury and shall be fined and/or imprisoned up to five years.

Section 1001 covers false statements made while not under oath. The section stipulates that “whoever, in any matter within the jurisdiction of the executive, legislative, or judicial branch of the government of the United States, knowingly and willfully” provides false information or conceals information may also be fined or imprisoned up to five years.

According to Madeline Osburn for The Federalist, “Five years ago to this month, former director of national intelligence James Clapper lied to Congress, and he has been scrambling to make excuses for the ongoing lies and leaks ever since.”

“In March 2013, Sen. Ron Wyder asked Clapper under oath if the U.S. government was collecting ‘any type of data at all on millions or hundreds of millions of Americans.’ Clapper paused and said, ‘No, sir. … Not wittingly.’ Three months later, Edward Snowden leaked documents revealing that the National Security Agency was in fact collecting in bulk domestic call records and other various internet communications on millions of Americans.”

“This was the first of many ‘untruths,’ as Clapper likes to call them. There are other lies Clapper has cooked up since trying to explain his false statements under oath.”

“Clapper leaked information about the dossier briefing to [Jake] Tapper [of CNN], lied to Congress about leaking, and was then given a contributor contract with CNN a few months later. As Mollie Hemingway reported, these lies would all eventually prove to be a set-up scheme by Clapper and then-FBI director James Comey to give legitimacy to the fabricated dossier.”

“Clap on, clap off…, clap on, clap off, the CLAPPER!”

atreason 10

“Nevertheless, in responding to the expanded Durham probe, House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., and House Intelligence Committee Chair Adam Schiff, D-Calif., accused the Trump administration of misconduct.”

‘“These reports, if true, raise profound new concerns that the Department of Justice under Attorney General William Barr has lost its independence and become a vehicle for President Trump’s political revenge,’ they said. ‘If the Department of Justice may be used as a tool of political retribution, or to help the President with a political narrative for the next election, the rule of law will suffer new and irreparable damage.’”

Oh no they didn’t!

Please tell me Nadler and Schiff did not accuse President Trump of “political revenge” and “political retribution,” and bemoan the fact that that “the rule of law will suffer new and irreparable damage!”

These people are the ones seeking “political revenge” and “political retribution!”

They’ve been seeking “political revenge” and “political retribution” since President Trump’s inauguration day, back in January of 2017, and they haven’t taken a day off since!

My friends…, if there is ANY justice in this world, President Trump will receive some level of vindication, and more than a few of these swamp rats will spend at least some time behind bars.

“Imprisoning Bill Barr is [the] left’s new rallying cry: ‘Have him locked up!’”

By Brooke Singman of Fox News.

“The battle between congressional Democrats and the Justice Department over Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia report has reached new levels of vitriol, as some on the left call for Attorney General Bill Barr to be physically dragged in to testify or even locked up for defying congressional subpoenas.”

“The demands have escalated after the attorney general refused to appear before the House Judiciary Committee last week amid disagreements over the format of the hearing.”

“Though he testified a day earlier on the Senate side, Democrats on the committee still want to bring in the DOJ leader to answer questions on the conclusion of Mueller’s investigation. Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., also imposed a Monday morning deadline for Barr to turn over the full, unredacted Mueller report and additional files — a deadline the DOJ apparently missed, prompting Nadler to schedule a Wednesday vote on contempt proceedings against Barr.”

Everything that William Barr has done up this point is completely within in rights and responsibilities as Attorney General.

What we have on the democrats’ side is a bunch of grandstanding, and now desperation, as they learned that Mr. Barr was looking into what really happened regarding Russian collusion, and what really happened regarding spying on Americans, and what really happened that caused this fraudulent investigation to be launched in the first place.

headlines 3

Their main goal now is to discredit him, silence him, and preferably have him resign or be removed from office.  Anything but allow him to drag their “swampy” friends out into the sunlight.

headlines 15

‘“He [Attorney General Barr] lied to Congress.  And if anybody else did that, it would be considered a crime,’ Pelosi told reporters. ‘Nobody is above the law. Not the president of the United States.  Not the attorney general.’”

Apparently Mrs. Pelosi is an exception to that rule…, as she lies ALL of the time to Congress, to us, to basically anyone within earshot of her.

“Pelosi’s public comments came after she, according to Politico, told Rep. Charlie Crist, D-Fla., during a private caucus meeting Thursday: ‘We saw [Barr] commit a crime when he answered your question.’”

“However, according to both the Post and the Justice Department, Mueller made clear that he did not feel that Barr’s summary was inaccurate.  Instead, Mueller told Barr that media coverage of the letter had “misinterpreted” the results of the probe concerning obstruction of justice.”

We all know it doesn’t matter to the democrats what anyone actually says…, the only thing that matters is what they want us to hear.

“NPR reporter refers to Barr summary in same terms as FDR describing attack on Pearl Harbor.”

By Anna Hopkins of Fox News

“The Department of Justice reporter for NPR [National Public Radio] referred to the date of Attorney General Barr’s summary of the Mueller report as ‘a date that will live … in infamy,’ a phrase many associate with President Franklin Roosevelt’s 1941 speech following the Pearl Harbor attack.”

headlines 10

“NPR’s Carrie Johnson made the comment during the NPR Politics podcast last Wednesday while discussing Barr’s testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee, during which he answered questions about the summary he gave of special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation.”

NPR…, another arm of the “biased, liberal propaganda, fake news media.”

Aren’t you be a tad dramatic there Ms. Johnson?

“A day that will live in infamy?”

Really?

How about the day that people in our government were contemplating a coup against President Trump?  How about that day?

How about the day the DOJ and the FBI decided they were going to falsify testimony to the FISA court and spy on the Trump campaign?  How about that day?

How about the day that the FBI overstepped its bounds and declared Hillary did not break any laws, regarding obstructing justice by destroying her server and then deleting over 33,00 emails, because that was not her “intent.”  How about that day?

You’re pathetic, Carrie Johnson.  You’re just a tool to be used by the liberal propaganda machine. You’re no journalist, and you’re no reporter.

You’re a fool.

“Why are the House Democrats out to get Attorney General Barr?”

By Representative Andy Biggs for Fox News

“Democrats in Congress are so worried that the American people will find out what is NOT in the Mueller report that they will say and do almost anything. The report exposes their false assertions that President Trump cooperated with the Russians to influence the 2016 presidential election. They will resort to embarrassing stunts like bringing fast food chicken buckets into congressional hearings. And, they will attempt to destroy the reputation of Attorney General William Barr simply because he is the messenger who released the Mueller report to the public.”

headlines 13

“Consider that House Democrat leaders are claiming Barr lied about … what? They are upset because he wrote a memo iterating the major findings in the Mueller report. They castigated Barr for the few weeks it took for him to make legally required redactions in the Mueller report before he could publicly release the report. Turns out Barr’s initial summary was accurate. And, we have a special counsel report that is available for public viewing with very few redactions, proving that Democrats weren’t telling the truth for over two years.”

“The Democrats must also be troubled that the inspector general will soon be releasing his report regarding the findings of his investigation into the abuse of power, which includes obtaining secret warrants to spy on the Trump campaign under the Obama administration. They dare not let go of their attack on the president and anyone who works with him, knowing that the IG report will likely contain damaging revelations of the Democrat National Committee and the Clinton presidential campaign working with Russians to unleash the police apparatus under President Obama to spy on the Trump campaign for political purposes.”

headlines 5

The democrats are counting on the complicit “biased, liberal propaganda, fake news media” to do their part and downplay or ignore any potentially damaging evidence that turns up.

They, in turn, will just continue to deny, deny, deny, and attempt to discredit William Barr, and anyone else that may need to be silenced.

“Dem state lawmaker records himself harassing pro-life woman outside Planned Parenthood”

By Caleb Parke of Fox News

“PA [Pennsylvania] State Representative Brian Sims recorded himself harassing a pro-life woman peacefully protesting outside a Planned Parenthood abortion clinic in Sims’ Philadelphia district.”

headlines 12

“A Pennsylvania Democratic state representative went on an eight-minute rant, verbally harassing an elderly woman protesting outside a Planned Parenthood abortion clinic.”

“Brian Sims recorded a woman outside Planned Parenthood of Southeastern Pennsylvania in Philadelphia, which is in his district, telling her to pray at home, calling her an ‘old white lady’ and lecturing her about her Christian beliefs on the Periscope app.”

‘“Push back against Planned Parenthood protestors, PLEASE!’ Sims wrote on Twitter Thursday. ‘They prey on young women, they use white privilege, & shame. They’re racist, classist, bigots who NEED & DESERVE our righteous opposition. Push back, please!’”

So here we have another obvious example of double standards exhibited by the “biased, liberal propaganda, fake new media.”

Here we have a politician no less, harassing an elderly citizen, who is doing everything within her rights as a citizen to do.

He brings her race into play, and then has the nerve to later call her a racist!

He also attacks her religion, which is okay to do, as long as it’s Christianity.  God forbid he would attack a Muslim!!!  Then we would really have a problem here!

The level of confusion exhibited by these clowns is just so impressive.

“Joy Behar slams ‘unpatriotic’ Trump, says GOP supporters should remove ‘those flag pins.’”

By Brian Flood for Fox News

‘“The View’ co-host Joy [less] Behar said on Monday that Republicans who support President Trump should take off ‘those flag pins’ because the president’s behavior regarding Russian meddling is ‘unpatriotic.’”

headlines 2

‘“It isn’t just that. Let’s talk about, you know, the fact that he met with Putin for 90 minutes… and never once brought up the fact that Russia, Russia interfered in our election,’ Behar said.

These libs just throw this stuff around like they know what they’re talking about.

How exactly did the Russians “interfere” with our elections?  They sure interfered far less than our own FBI and DOJ!  And I don’t hear her crying about James Comey or Loretta Lynch though!

That’s because Joy “less” Behar has no idea what she is talking about.  She is just a part of the “biased, liberal propaganda, fake news media.”

headlines 3

“Behar continued: ‘I said last week I don’t want to see any of those flag pins anymore on Republicans who don’t stand up against this guy for Russian meddling, and other things that he’s done. It seems as though he’s unpatriotic.’”

headlines 4

Joy “less” Behar is so far off base here, it’s hard to know how to respond.  So I guess I won’t.

“You can’t argue with crazy” is something my wife says all of the time.

And she’s right.

So I won’t.

“Behar has attacked Trump and his supporters on a regular basis, mocking everything from Mike Pence’s Christian faith to women who support Trump.  She immediately backtracked last September after saying ‘God forbid President Trump lives another 20 years.’”

What a peach.

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein isn’t good at much…, except saving his own a$$!

…at least for the moment.

According to Nicole Darrah and John Roberts for Fox News, “Former Arkansas Republican Governor Mike Huckabee says Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein’s critical comments [about] the Russia election interference investigation [and of the Obama administration for their handling of the Russia investigation] is a soft way of saying there was a cover up.”

“Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who frequently found himself in the political crosshairs due to his role in the special counsel’s Russia probe and whose departure has long been expected, submitted his resignation on Monday to President Trump, effective May 11.”

rosenstein 7

“Attorney General William Barr in a statement said Rosenstein served the Justice Department ‘with dedication and distinction.’”

Ugh.  I think I just threw up in my mouth a little.

‘“His devotion to the Department and its professionals is unparalleled,’ the statement read. ‘Over the course of his distinguished government career, he has navigated many challenging situations with strength, grace, and good humor.’”

Ahhhhh!  Ok…, that did it…, now I just hurled all over my keyboard!

What is Barr talking about?!

I’m confused.

At times it seems that Attorney General Barr is a pretty “straight shooter,” but then he comes out with this junk regarding Rod Rosenstein, and puts himself back into the “political hack” category.

Let’s just quickly review Mr. Rosenstein’s “distinguished” actions.

Rod Rosenstein was implicated in the FBI surveillance abuses against the Trump campaign in, recently released, declassified memos.

rosenstein 4

Rosenstein was responsible for at least one questionable surveillance warrant (FISA) application, which he signed, knowing full well that information supporting the application was obtained from a partisan anti-Trump dossier funded by Hillary Clinton’s campaign and the Democrat Party.

According to Saagar Enjeti, a White House Correspondent for The Daily Caller, “President Donald Trump agreed that alleged discussions of Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein invoking the 25th Amendment in the days after the firing of former FBI Director James Comey constituted an illegal coup attempt in a Monday morning tweet.”

rosenstein 6

‘“This was an illegal coup attempt on the President of the United States. Dan Bongino on @foxandfriends True! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 18, 2019,’”

“Trump quoted from a Fox and Friends segment by conservative commentator Dan Bongino who reacted to a Sunday night broadcast interview of former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe on CBSNews’ 60 minutes.”

‘“60 Minutes Moment of the Week: Former FBI acting director McCabe says Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein raised the idea of removing President Trump via the 25th Amendment. https://t.co/wkC4AKxGiC pic.twitter.com/UkOb4QbrZh

— 60 Minutes (@60Minutes) February 18, 2019’”

“McCabe detailed two occasions in which Rosenstein raised the prospect of using the 25th Amendment to remove Trump from office and even suggested that two cabinet officials would be willing to involve themselves in the scheme.”

The 25th Amendment allows for the removal of the President of the United States if a majority of his Senate-confirmed cabinet believe he is no longer capable of discharging his duties while in office.

“Rosenstein’s discussion of wearing a wire and talk of the 25th Amendment was first reported by The New York Times in September 2018.”

“McCabe also alleges that Rosenstein suggested in a meeting that he would wear a wire into the Oval Office in meetings with Trump. The former FBI deputy director told ‘60 minutes’ in an interview that he took Rosenstein’s suggestion so seriously that he brought the idea up to FBI lawyers who waved off his suggestion.”

“The original New York Times report of Rosenstein’s discussion of wearing a wire into the Oval Office and invoking the 25th Amendment nearly prompted his ouster in September 2018. Trump, however, appeared to accept Rosenstein’s explanation at that the report was exaggerated or not true, and the deputy attorney general was allowed to keep his job.”

“The president changed his tune on Twitter Monday morning, however, indicating he now believes the reports.”

‘“Wow, so many lies by now disgraced acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe. He was fired for lying, and now his story gets even more deranged. He and Rod Rosenstein, who was hired by Jeff Sessions (another beauty), look like they were planning a very illegal act, and got caught…..

— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump)’”

rosenstein 1

Rosenstein also took over the Russia investigation after then AG Jeff Sessions recused himself from the investigation.  It was Rosenstein who later appointed Mueller to his post and got the whole “Russian collusion” and President Trump “witch hunt” rolling.

Quite a “distinctive” and “dedicated” career, huh?

William Barr said “His [Rosenstein’s] devotion to the Department and its professionals is unparalleled…”

I would say that his “devotion” was to “the swamp,” and the rest of his treasonous cohorts…, not the Department of Justice.

On his way out, Rosenstein has even defended Attorney General Bill Barr’s handling of the Mueller report.

Also, “Rosenstein was part of a small group of [Justice] department officials who reviewed the document [the Mueller Report] and helped shape its public release. After Mueller didn’t reach a conclusion on whether Trump had obstructed the investigation, Barr and Rosenstein stepped in and determined the evidence wasn’t enough to support such an allegation.”

“In his resignation letter, Rosenstein thanked Trump ‘for the opportunity to serve; for the courtesy and humor you often display in our personal conversations; and for the goals you set in your inaugural address: patriotism, unity, safety, education, and prosperity, because a nation exists to serve its citizens.’”

Oh, oh…, I’m starting to feel a little sick to my stomach again!

“…because a nation exists to serve its citizens,” huh?

And “swampy” federal employees, like yourself, exist to serve themselves and “the swamp.”

rosenstein 3

Rosenstein’s picture should be in the dictionary next to “slimy swamp monster.”

rosenstein 2

I’m glad to see Rosenstein go for now, but hopefully we’ll see him again in the not too distant future, giving up some his cohorts to again save his slimy, treasonous a$$!

Let’s not forget how the FBI and the DOJ participated in promoting this historic hoax against our president called “Russian collusion.”

Now that Robert Mueller’s investigation has concluded, and its determination was that there was no Trump-Russia collusion, there have been calls to examine the probe’s origins at the FBI.

President Trump has called for Congress and/or our new Attorney General to “look into” those who had created a “false narrative” sparking the fairy tale investigation.

agent-strzok-texted-well-stop-trump-from-34099662

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., has already committed to look into the FBI’s actions here.

Another Inspector General’s (IG) report about much of this is expected to come out within the next three months as well.  Perhaps this report will bring some of these actions and behaviors out into the light and into question.

We’ll see.

Let’s not forget that the FBI is an agency within the Department of Justice (DOJ), and that the FBI Director reports to the Attorney General of the United States.  So while all of this was occurring, we had James Comey reporting to Loretta Lynch, both of whom were appointed to their positions by Barack Obama.

The slogan of the FBI, which appears on its symbolic badge is “Fidelity, Bravery, Integrity.” This slogan, which originated 1935 by FBI Inspector W.H. Drane Lester, describes the high moral standards the FBI expects from its staff.

These expectations apparently do not extend to their upper management level personnel!

Let’s take a walk down memory lane and recall some of these text message gems that some of these non-political protectors of the republic felt compelled to send.

On Aug. 8, 2016, FBI lawyer Lisa Page texted her adulterous lover, Peter Strzok, who was in charge of the FBI investigation of Hillary Clinton and later worked on the Russia probe: “[Trump’s] not ever going to become president, right? Right?!”

Strzok responded on his FBI-issued work phone: “No. No he won’t. We’ll stop it.”

obama strzok page texts

This text was discovered by the inspector general at the U.S. Department of Justice, after the FBI amazingly failed to uncover the message on its own.  That’s odd.

We all learned they have a hard time recovering emails, but I guess that applies to certain text messages as well!

This is what a previous report by the Inspector General had to say about Strzok’s text, “It is not only indicative of a biased state of mind but, even more seriously, implies a willingness to take official action to impact the presidential candidate’s electoral prospects.”

The inspector general’s office also asked Strzok for his response.

“When asked about this text message, Strzok stated that he did not specifically recall sending it, but that he believed that it was intended to reassure Page that Trump would not be elected, not to suggest that he would do something to impact the investigation,” the report notes.

Strzok later told the House Judiciary Committee that he meant Americans in general would stop Trump in 2016.

strzok media leak strategy

You have to ask the question, “What were these people at the FBI and the DOJ so worried about regarding Donald Trump possibly being elected?

I mean…, fine…, you want Hillary Clinton to win, but is it the end of the world if she doesn’t?

These people apparently think so, since they were willing to go as far as to undo a legitimate presidential election.

As time goes on, I think we’re beginning to see what they were all afraid of.  They were all afraid that we would get a glimpse into their “deep state” operations and that their gig would be up.  And it is.

In an Aug. 15, 2016 text message, Strzok told Page: “I want to believe … that there’s no way Trump 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.”

According to Maxim Lott for Fox News, “Critics say the text implies Strzok wanted the investigation to hurt Trump in case he were to win.”

Strzok also told the IG and the House Judiciary Committee that his text meant “an investigation should happen right away.”

“My use of the phrase ‘insurance policy’ was simply to say, while the polls or people might think it is less likely that then-candidate Trump would be elected, that should not influence … us doing our job responsibly,” Strzok told the House Judiciary Committee.

Oh, okay, that makes sense to me now.

Have I told you how happy I am you got fired Mr. Strzok?

Well, I am.

“Despite having called the Russia situation an ‘insurance policy’ and having pressed for more vigorous investigation, a text from May 17, 2017 shows Strzok had doubts.”

“In texts to Page, Strzok questioned whether he should join Mueller’s team investigating Trump and Russia because: “you and I both know the odds [of us finding anything] are nothing.  If I thought it [an investigation] was likely [to turn up anything] I’d be there no question.”

“Strzok did ultimately joined the team investigating Trump, before being removed and then fired, after the IG report revealed his texts.’

strzok and page on mueller team

In February 2016, while Hillary Clinton was under investigation for improper handling of classified information, the Department of Justice wanted to send four attorneys to question Clinton.

But FBI attorney Page urged both Strzok and then FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe to only allow two DOJ people to be sent.

“Our best reason to hold the line at 2 is she might be our next president,” Page explained to McCabe via text. “The last thing we need is us going in there loaded for bear, when it is not operationally necessary… This is as much about reputational protection as anything.”

Hmmm, they didn’t seem to have any of these concerns when dealing with Donald Trump.  Just sayin’.

The Inspector General report also found an exchange between FBI employees on their work phones from Nov. 9, just after the election.

“I can’t stop crying,” one unidentified FBI employee said.

“That makes me even more sad… I can’t stop stressing about what I could have done differently,” an unidentified FBI attorney replied.

The same FBI employee who discussed crying after the election also used an FBI-issued device to direct class-based disdain toward Trump supporters: “Trump’s supporters are all poor to middle class, uneducated, lazy POS that think he will magically grant them jobs for doing nothing.”

Peter Strzok used similar language, saying in one text: “Just went to a southern Virginia Walmart. I could SMELL the Trump support….”

Ha!

Well we can smell you and your partners in crime too, Strzok, and you smell rotten…, rotten to the core.

Okay…, now that Mueller’s phony investigation is over, let’s find out what really happened during the 2016 presidential election!

Don’t you feel sorry for Robert Mueller?

I mean he was trying his hardest to pin something, anything, on President Trump, but he had to deal with tripping over evidence against Hillary Clinton and the rest of “the swamp” at every turn!

It must have made his job quite challenging.

I haven’t read the Mueller Report yet, of course, but I’m willing to bet that over the course of his investigation, he and his motley crew didn’t come across ONE thing that would reflect negatively on Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, the Obama administration, the Obama DOJ or the Obama FBI.

Imagine that!

Let’s wait and see, but if this is the case, and I’m sure it is, this would only further substantiate the fact that Robert Mueller’s “investigation” was a complete farce, and just a “witch hunt” like President Trump claimed all along.

Kimberley Strassel, an editorial board member for The Wall Street Journal agrees.  She says, “Mueller’s investigation is done.  Now dig into the real scandal — missteps of Comey, FBI.”

She has gone on to call for the declassification of all documents related to the Mueller report.

“The American public deserves to get the full picture of the special counsel’s investigation,” she argues.

Ya, it would be nice to see what Mueller chose NOT to investigate, or things he chose to look the other on.  By all means, let’s drag all of this out into the sunlight!

Perhaps, once they realize what they are asking for, the democrats will start singing a different tune about wanting everything associated with the “investigation” released and subpoenaing Mueller to testify about his report.

“Attorney General William Barr has reported to Congress that Special Counsel Robert Mueller has cleared President Trump and his campaign team of claims of conspiring with Russia during the 2016 election.  This is more than an exoneration.  It’s a searing indictment of the Federal Bureau of Investigation [FBI], as well as a reminder of the need to know the story behind the bureau’s corrosive investigation.”

“Mr. Mueller’s report likely doesn’t put it that way, but it’s the logical conclusion of his no-collusion finding. The FBI unleashed its powers on a candidate for the office of the U.S. presidency, an astonishing first. It did so on the incredible grounds that the campaign had conspired to aid a foreign government. And it used the most aggressive tools in its arsenal—surveillance of U.S. citizens, secret subpoenas of phone records and documents, even human informants.”

“Americans now deserve a full accounting of the missteps of former FBI Director James Comey and his team—in part so that this never happens again.”

“The wreckage is everywhere. The nation has been engulfed in conspiracy theories for years.  A presidency was hemmed in by the threat of a special counsel.  Citizens have gone to jail not for conspiracy [or collusion, or obstruction], but for after-the-fact interactions with Mr. Mueller’s team.  Dozens more have spent enormous amounts of money and time defending their reputations.”

These people were all collateral damage in the effort to bring down President Trump.

“None of this should ever have happened absent highly compelling evidence—from the start—of wrongdoing. Yet from what we know, the FBI operated on the basis of an overheard conversation of third-tier campaign aide George Papadopoulos, as well as a wild “dossier” financed by the rival presidential campaign.  Mr. Mueller’s no-collusion finding amounts to a judgment that there never was any evidence.  The Papadopoulos claim was thin, [and] the dossier a fabrication.”

And what about the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) court abuses, and all of the downright treasonous actions that can be attributed to the Obama administration, the Obama DOJ and the Obama FBI?

The tide has definitely turned here and we have them on the run!

Now it’s time to dole out some real justice!

LOCK HER UP!

LOCK THEM UP!

LOCK ‘EM ALL UP!
