How an FBI official with a political agenda
corrupted both Mueller, Comey investigations

Fox News, by Gregg Jarrett

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 12/7/2017 4:59:37 AM

How is it possible that Hillary Clinton escaped criminal indictment for mishandling classified documents despite incriminating evidence that she violated the Espionage Act? Why did Donald Trump become the target of a criminal investigation for allegedly conspiring with Russia to influence the presidential election despite no evidence that he ever did so? The answer, it seems, comes down to one person who played a vital role in both cases: Peter Strzok, deputy director of counterintelligence at the FBI. Strzok was exchanging politically charged texts with an FBI lawyer that denigrated Trump and lauded Clinton at the same time he was

It´s more like Mueller and Comey were already corrupt and Strzok just assisted them.

You can´t corrupt something or someone that is already corrupt.

Might be a willing scapegoat, but the corruption is pervasive.

Any attempt to make Strzok the scapegoat here would be most odd indeed, as the obvious outcome would be letting Mueller, Comey, Lynch, Clinton, and of course BarackHussein off the hook.

Now... why would anyone want to do that?

Comey and Mueller are caught red-handed not notifying Congress of a compromised investigation. They failed to cover themselves and even now they are not getting out in front.
Time to admit this and a new FBI created that does´t operate as some secret police in the nature of the Hitler´s National Socialist Party.

Yes, “grossly negligent” becomes “extremely careless”. A criminal investigation becomes a "matter".

"It depends upon what the meaning of the word ´is´ is".

Leftists are masters of twisting language.

NO REPLACEMENT for Mueller. He and his stooges should be dismissed with prejudice. The investigation should immediately STOP. There should be a SMALL panel of approved people to review the existing "evidence" and determine, after a year of looking, if there is anything worthwhile pursuing. They may NOT investigate further, simply review and recommend.

They must NOT be fishing for Leftist delusions or "lying to investigators about legal matters" silliness.

They should be determining if there is a real CRIMINAL case pursuant specifically to RUSSIANS and TRUMP working ILLEGALLY to influence the ELECTION.

This does NOT include meetings with Russians at conferences or as part of your job as a Senator or as part of a business opportunity 10 years ago. It doesn´t include discussions such as "It would be nice to work together to solve the ISIS problem.". It does not include the typical counterintelligence speculation that accepted Hillary´s absurd Dossier as possible. Nor does it include a specious "obstruction of justice" fantasy.

There should be a laser focus on the issue originally concerned about as a CRIMINAL matter. There should also be a HARD timeline, perhaps 2 months, to present their decision.

We already KNOW that there is nothing there. This would simply be finalizing it.

Strozk is just the guy that was stupid enough to be so obvious that it couldn´t be hidden any longer, even by the complicit republican members of The Swamp. The entire leadership of the FBI is just as corrupt. They all need to go, some to jail.

Inside any organization, especially one that operates in secrets, there develops a whole gaggle of cliques- departments, sub-departments, investigative groups, special investigators, closed door clatches that supposedly are performing ´special´ inquiries and studies, etc. Inevitably, these groups develops unique trusts between members and then they develop special goals and become entirely refocused on particular agendas within the department. Team mebers go to luncheons together, order in pizza, have late night sessions and soon, they become a force unto themselves, their original mission is forgotten. A great example of this is the TV series, "The shield". A "Special Task Force" was developed headed by a dirty, brutal cop named Mackey. He hand picked his team, and they operated in a very unique manner, using techniques that were illegal and even criminal. When the system got in the way slowing down regular police work, the Chief would reluctantly call in Mackey and his boys- they would violate every constitutional practice in the book- but they got results almost instantly. No one would ever ask the right questions to shut them down and if they did, one of Mackey´s boys would give them a little "midnight tune up"

This is actually the way the real world works- at least part of it- and always has. In the case of the FBI- it has taken over the entire establishment, due to a corrupt Obama Administration that universally despised the slow grinding process of democratic laws, rules and decency.

There´s a good reason Strzok was so brazen. Had he been a rogue partisan he would have been more careful. Clearly he was comfortable in his surroundings because his surroundings were a great fit, people just like him. The whole socialist elite class including Hillary herself were so confident that Hillary would win they didn´t take the rational precautions that would have come with any doubt.

Things are indeed unraveling. If we want to get answers, seems the DOJ has the power to release all the requested documents by the oversight committees now. The chairmen all have the highest security classifications, so they are cleared to see any of them.

Why are they being stonewalled? Could it be feet dragging to hopefully have a different Senate in charge? Maybe.. but if Sessions can´t see his way clear of this, who can demand it? Seems all the cards are still stacked against the truth coming out!

All this corruption, destruction of subpoenaed emails and documents, illegal servers, rigged primary election, illegal domestic spying, fake dossier, numerous violations of the Constitution and not one person has been charged. What do all these perps involved have in common? They´re all Democrats who supported, protected, covered up and lied for obama and Hillary. What will happen to them? My guess is not enough to make us here happy. If there are any consequences at all they won´t be enough to keep these partisan Democrat hacks from worming their way back in positions of power in the Federal government!

WRONG!! Don´t believe for one minute that this Strzok character was the rogue villain who orchestrated this complex nefarious scheme all by himself. This plot began at 2.31 am on Nov 9 2016 from the highest echelons of then US Government. Strzok might be made a scapegoat or fall guy but the real evil is lurking way at the top.

Gregg Jarrett missed the boat on this one.

If Strzok was not on the same path and of like mind as Mueller, Comey, McCabe, etc they would have dispatched him to North Dakota many moons ago.

Truly birds of a feather flock together.

Strzok was just a follower and not a leader so do not think he just corrupted the others.

So this worm just happened to wheedle his slimy self into every little nook and cranny of the FBI so he could do his dirty stuff, huh? Not quite. Don´t believe that for a second. No, he was just one of the Dirty Dozen working to destroy Trump --- and a minor character at that --- so he´s now as expendable as Trini Lopez was in the original movie because he´s not the big name star.

Mueller threw this guy off the stagecoach because he can hear the wolves getting closer and he needed to lighten the load to move faster. Strzok (Russian name??)did what he was told.

Why are we finding out in December what happened in August? So Mueller could pull off more dirty tricks before Congress got wind. And where is Congress --- oh btw???

Do you really need this ridiculous explanation of "how" some relative flack corrupted an investigation? Did you really NOT think Comey was corrupt in July, 2016 after his speech? With all the KNOWN history of EVERY person on this Mueller team SINCE IT STARTED, has Gregg Jarrett offered anything we didn´t already know just because Strzok was caught texting his mistress?

What in the living Billy S***ing Hell do you think it takes to stop the fantasyland dossier investigation and start to investigate the woman who traded 20 percent of OUR uranium reserves for personal cash and ON PURPOSE, had our most sensitive information available 24/7/365 for four years?

I don´t care what you´re getting but I´m real tired of all this stupid ass intrigue as if we´re "getting" to the bottom of something. The bottom cannot be more clear and has been wide open for viewing for over a year now with GOP leaders and the "outstanding, honest, full of integrity" attorney general acting like this is all new information. Does that not PROVE that they too are just as involved in impeaching Trump as the entertainment-education-media complex, Marxists and deep state?

I´m all stocked up on pillows, gold, mattresses, safes, and simple home security systems. I don´t need to hear the SAME damn story for over a year to know this federal government leadership is using MY tax money to illegally impeach a duly elected president. Is there ANY elected politician other than Trump himself who WILL stop this utter nonsense?

I love Gregg Garrett, but I laughed out loud at his suggestion that Comey,et.al, need to be put under oath to get to the bottom of all of this. Under oath? Didn´t Comey already lie under oath to the Congress? And he just got a what $10 million book deal? These people would lie to their mothers under oath. And they will continue to lie under oath or not about this case. The deep state is too important to be tampered with.

Perjury doesn´t exist if you are a Democrat. Well with one exception, the poor, hapless Martha Stewart.

There are fine constitutional lawyers who can argue back and forth about the Masterpiece Cakeshop case the Supreme Court heard last week, which will determine whether a Christian baker can decline to make a same-sex couple’s wedding cake. The court’s decision will either limit antidiscrimination law or limit First Amendment protections, so it’s not surprising that you can find deeply-footnoted legal arguments on both sides. Nor is it surprising that I’m on the side of the baker. But I’m not going to make a constitutional argument for his rights. I’m going to make a political argument for why our country would

In the wake of President Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital last week, the “experts” crowding the media predicted strategic calamity: Vast, violent protests and a wave of terror would sweep the Muslim world in the coming days. Instead, the largest demonstration anywhere this weekend was the funeral procession for Johnny Hallyday, the “French Elvis.” Nothing in the Middle East came close. We have witnessed, yet again, the carefully phrased anti-Semitism of the pristinely educated; the global left’s fanatical pro-Palestinian bias; and the media’s yearning for career-making disasters. Rather than waves of protest, the waiting world got tepid statements of disapproval from

Donald Trump´s first year in office has been, to put it mildly, a rocky one. But it can be argued that he´s ending it on an upswing. Congress is likely to soon pass a tax reform bill. Robert Mueller´s "Russia Squad" is getting its first round of bad press. Judge Roy Moore is favored to win next week´s Senate election in Alabama with Trump´s support. The Supreme Court has acquiesced to Trump´s travel ban for now (while it waits for the lower courts to rule).

WASHINGTON — David Brock’s Media Matters for America appears to be granting hundreds of thousands of dollars in charitable funds to political groups that are trying to impeach the president and unseat Republicans across the nation. Brock’s Media Matters for America is a registered 501(c)3 non-profit organization that has tax-exempt status. That tax-exempt status comes with an important caveat: the non-profit is barred from participating in political activity–funding or otherwise–that is in support or opposition to a candidate for office.

The Treasury Department paid $220,000 in a previously undisclosed agreement to settle a lawsuit alleging sexual harassment that involved Florida Democrat Alcee L. Hastings, according to documents obtained by Roll Call. Winsome Packer, a former staff member of a congressional commission that promotes international human rights, said in documents that the congressman touched her, made unwanted sexual advances, and threatened her job. At the time, Hastings was the chairman of the Commission on Security and Cooperation in Europe, where Packer worked.

Here they go again — the news media, that is, racing to run stories meant to discredit President Trump’s 2016 election victory, only to wind up with egg on their faces. Friday, it was CNN’s turn to be caught spreading a false yarn — this one trying to link Team Trump with WikiLeaks and its supposed efforts, along with the Russians, to throw last year’s election to Trump. On Sept. 4, 2016, CNN said, Donald Trump Jr. got an e-mail tipping him off to WikiLeaks material that wasn’t yet public. That sure sounds like an effort to collude. Trouble is, the e-mail was actually dated Sept. 14 — a full 10 days later and after WikiLeaks

DETROIT – Michigan´s Republican governor announced Friday that Democrat John Conyers´ congressional seat will not be filled until the regularly scheduled November election, leaving it vacant for nearly a year. Gov. Rick Snyder decided the post will be listed twice on the August primary and November general election ballots. While unlikely, it is possible voters could choose one candidate to fill the vacancy until January 2019 and elect another to a full two-year term after that. It is unusual for a congressional district to stay vacant for so long, according to a review of roughly 100 vacancies and successors listed on

BAGHDAD – Hundreds of ISIS fighters had just been chased out of a northern Syrian city and were fleeing through the desert in long convoys, presenting an easy target to U.S. A-10 "warthogs." But the orders to bomb the black-clad jihadists never came, and the terrorists melted into their caliphate -- living to fight another day. The events came in August 2016, even as then-Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump was vowing on the campaign trail to let generals in his administration crush the organization that, under President Obama, had grown from the “jayvee team” to the world’s most feared terrorist organization.

There are times in life when the institutional ground underneath you begins to crumble — and with it, longstanding attachments. Such is the case for me when it comes to the Republican Party and evangelicalism. I’ve been a part of both for my entire adult life. These days, though, in many important ways they are having harmful effects on our society. The latest example is in Alabama, where Roy Moore, the Republican Senate candidate, stands accused of varying degrees of sexual misconduct by nine women, including one who was 14 years old at the time. Mr. Moore leads in most

An award-winning U.S. diplomat who was seen as a rising star at the State Department has issued a scathing resignation letter, accusing Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and the Donald Trump administration of undercutting the State Department and damaging America’s influence in the world. Elizabeth Shackelford, who most recently served as a political officer based in Nairobi for the U.S. mission to Somalia, wrote to Tillerson that she reluctantly had decided to quit because the administration had abandoned human rights as a priority and shown disdain for the State Department’s diplomatic work,

Prior to President Donald Trump’s visit to the opening of the Mississippi Civil Rights Museum today, Fox & Friends brought on Trump supporter and former sheriff David Clarke to discuss the president’s appearance. And things got very tense very fast. Right off the bat, co-host Pete Hegseth asked Clarke what he thought about Rep. John Lewis (D-GA), a civil rights icon, deciding not to attend the opening because Trump would be in attendance. Clarke reacted by immediately dismissing Lewis. “John who?” Clarke mocking stated. “John Lewis — he was bloodied on the Selma bridge, Sheriff, when trying to protest voting

Sen. Richard Shelby says he wants a Republican elected to the Senate on Tuesday to represent Alabama, but that he didn’t vote for GOP candidate Roy Moore in the special election. The Alabama Republican said he’s already cast his ballot, and that he chose a write-in candidate. “I’d rather see the Republican win, but I’d rather see a Republican write-in. I couldn’t vote for Roy Moore. I didn’t vote for Roy Moore,” Shelby told CNN’s Jake Tapper on “State of the Union.” Moore has been accused of pursuing sexual relationships with teenagers when he was in his 30s. In some

Short of impeaching President Trump, does anything excite Democrats, the Resistance, and NeverTrumpers like the prospect of the president firing special counsel Robert Mueller? Firing Mueller would, or course, be the quickest way for Trump to get impeached, which might explain a certain air of anticipation in discussions of whether — some prefer to say when -- Trump will sack the prosecutor leading the Trump-Russia investigation.There has been a lot of news and commentary recently interpreting criticism of Mueller by a number of pro-Trump media voices as an effort to encourage Trump to fire Mueller, or lay the groundwork for

California Gov. Jerry Brown (D) says President Trump´s stance on climate change demonstrates that he does not appear to fear the "wrath of God" or have any regard for the "existential consequences" of his climate change policies. “I don’t think President Trump has a fear of the Lord, the fear of the wrath of God, which leads one to more humility ... this is such a reckless disregard for the truth and for the existential consequences that can be unleashed,” Brown said in an interview on CBS´s "60 Minutes," which is set to air on Sunday. Brown, who previously studied to become

Loose dentures? More like loose screws. Donald Trump was slurring his words pretty good last week for a guy who fancied himself an expert when it came to Hillary Clinton’s alleged brain damage. What would he make of his own slurred speech and bizarre behavior? brain tumor from the weight of that massive combover sitting on top of his head like a live farm animal? Simply slurred speech because his thoughts are so fantastic that his mouth can’t keep up?

WASHINGTON — Around 5:30 each morning, President Trump wakes and tunes into the television in the White House’s master bedroom. He flips to CNN for news, moves to “Fox & Friends” for comfort and messaging ideas, and sometimes watches MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” because, friends suspect, it fires him up for the day. Energized, infuriated — often a gumbo of both — Mr. Trump grabs his iPhone. Sometimes he tweets while propped on his pillow, according to aides. Other times he tweets from the den next door, watching another television. Less frequently, he makes his way up the hall to the
