It’s amazing how the FBI and Mueller took part in such horrific action as trying to prevent Trump from being elected in the first place. Yet, Mueller himself is investigating Trump? Totally insane, if you ask me. This is nothing but a circus and a very expensive one on the backs of taxpayers. Trump needs to end this distraction and move on with his agenda to ‘Make America Great’.
In one exchange from August 2016, the FBI’s Lisa Page forwarded a Donald Trump-related article to Peter Strzok, writing: “And maybe you’re meant to stay where you are because you’re meant to protect the country from that menace.”
Two FBI officials who previously took part in special counsel Robert Mueller’s widely panned Russia investigation exchanged text messages during the summer of 2016 in which they appeared to discuss ways to prevent then-GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump from being elected president.
“I want to believe the path you threw out for consideration in Andy’s office — that there’s no way (Trump) gets elected — but I’m afraid we can’t take that risk,” top FBI counterintelligence agent Peter Strzok wrote in an Aug. 15, 2016 text to Lisa Page, an attorney who at the time worked for Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, according to The Daily Caller.
“It’s like an insurance policy in the unlikely event you die before you’re 40,” Strzok added in his text to Page, who was also reportedly his mistress.
As noted by Matt Vespa of Townhall in regard to these texts, it’s “quite unsettling to see members of our nation’s preeminent law enforcement and intelligence agencies thinking of ways to screw over the next president of the United States simply because they don’t like him or her.”
Released to the House Judiciary Committee this week, the text messages contain numerous other examples of Strzok and Page expressing what Fox News described as their “anti-Trump feelings” and discussing how to “protect the country from that menace,” as quoted from their texts.
By “that menace” the duo meant Trump, of course.
After Mueller learned of these disturbing messages, he reassigned Strzok to the FBI’s human resources division. Page, who reportedly briefly worked on Mueller’s team, has returned to the FBI as well. And because the special counsel seemingly dealt with these two properly, liberals now adamantly argue that Mueller has demonstrated his commitment to objectivity.
“That fact that it appears Mueller removed Strzok from the investigation as soon as he find out about the messages tends to underscore Mueller’s seriousness about keeping the investigation free from even the appearance of bias,” said Lawrence Noble, the general counsel of the Campaign Legal Center, to Vox.
Maybe, maybe not. Mueller would have done a lot more to show he was serious about that by not staffing his investigation with high-powered Democrat lawyers, for starters.
But some have argued that this entirely misses the point, which is that the very investigation Mueller happens to be performing is itself rooted in corruption.
“Democrats and the media are accusing anyone who criticizes special counsel Robert Mueller as Trumpian conspirators trying to undermine his probe,” The Wall Street Journal’s editorial board argued in a column Wednesday. “But who needs critics when Mr. Mueller’s team is doing so much to undermine its own credibility?”
“The texts explain why Mr. Mueller would remove Mr. Strzok, though a straight shooter wouldn’t typically resist turning those messages over to Congress for as long as Mr. Mueller did,” the board added.
The Journal had a point. From filling his team with Democrats to resisting Congress’ attempts for transparency and, worse, allowing an anti-Trump zealot in the FBI to serve in such a pivotal role in the Russia investigation for so long, Mueller has demonstrated incompetence, at the very least, if not malfeasance as well.
This entire investigation is nothing but a witch hunt and everyone knows it! There’s no evidence of Trump-Russia collusion. Since there was no evidence, Mueller has moved his investigation into other areas – it’s called ‘let’s just find anything we can to pin on Trump to get him out’. They don’t care about the Trump-Russia collusion. If Mueller did he would have arrested Hillary Clinton by now and charged her for all her pay-to-play scandals related to Uranium One, Russia and the Clinton Foundation. Like that will ever happen, right? Get real!
President Trump needs to fire Mueller and terminate the investigation for the Trump-Russia collusion, since there was no evidence found there. Mueller is just digging to be digging right now. If Trump really wants to continue to push his policies through to ‘Make America Great Again’ he needs to end this distraction. This is nothing but a horse and pony show.
If Mueller wants a real investigation he should investigate the Uranium One deal and Hillary Clinton. On second thought, he could investigate the real corruption of the Democratic Party and Hillary Clinton and Obama and how they all colluded to interfere with the presidential election. Mueller could investigate how the Obama administration used the power of the FBI, CIA and several other departments to try and take Trump down during the election. Of course that includes making up the Russia-Trump collusion and faking the Trump dossier in the first place so they could put wiretaps in place to spy on Trump’s campaign in the first place. Oh, never mind, Mueller really doesn’t want to deal with real news and real facts does he?
