The email and text message bombshells surrounding Robert Mueller’s “investigation” just keep coming! FBI counterintelligence official Peter Strzok exchanged more than 10,000 texts with his mistress, Lisa Page, another FBI official who also had worked on the Mueller team.
In some of these messages, the couple appear to have discussed ways to prevent Donald Trump from being elected president!
Check it out, per Daily Caller:
“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,” FBI counterintelligence official Peter Strzok wrote in a cryptic text message to Lisa Page, an FBI lawyer and his mistress.
“It’s like an insurance policy in the unlikely event you die before you’re 40,” Strzok wrote in the text, dated Aug. 15, 2016.
Andy is likely Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe.
That particular message came after Strzok was appointed to oversee the Russia investigation. It definitely looks like they were trying to figure out what to do in case Trump won the election.
That text is just one of the 375 texts that were released on Tuesday. There’s more:
Several congressional panels have sought the text messages since their existence was revealed earlier this month. Strzok, who was a top investigator on both the Trump investigation and the Clinton email probe, was kicked off of Mueller’s team over the summer after the text messages were discovered.
It remains unclear why the existence of the texts was not disclosed until nearly four months after Strzok was removed from the Mueller investigation.
Despite requests for information about why Strzok was removed from the team and reassigned, Robert Mueller stonewalled. The texts were only revealed recently when it was discovered that the Inspector General’s office was investigating Strzok for possible bias!
In addition to the smoking gun text, Strzok and Page exchanged many texts disparaging Trump and showing their admiration for Hillary Clinton.
Here’s more from Fox News:
Two days later, Page texted Strzok, “God, Trump is a loathsome human.”
“Yet he may[sic] win,” Strzok responded. “Good for Hillary.”
Later the same day, Strzok texted Page, “Omg [Trump’s] an idiot.”
“He’s awful,” Page answered.
“America will get what the voting public deserves,” said Strzok, to which Page responded. “That’s what I’m afraid of.”
And check this out, from Daily Caller:
In a text sent on Oct. 20, 2016, Strzok called the Republican a “f*cking idiot.”
In on Aug. 6 text, Strzok responded to an article shared by Page by replying, “F Trump.”
The pair exchanged another cryptic text message that same day.
“Maybe you’re meant to stay where you are because you’re meant to protect the country from that menace,” Page wrote.
“I can protect our country at many levels, not sure if that helps,” Strzok replied.
At the time he was saying much of this, he was leading the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s email server! Strzok even conducted the interview of Mrs. Clinton.
Then there was this obviously biased comment from July 19.
From Fox News:
Four months later, Strzok and Page exchanged messages mocking Trump and his family at the Republican National Convention.
“Oooh, TURN IT ON, TURN IT ON!!! THE DO*CHEBAGS ARE ABOUT TO COME OUT,” Strzok texted Page on July 19. “You can tell by the excitable clapping.”
These are the ‘unbiased’ people behind the Clinton email investigation and the Russia investigation.
All of these political hacks should be fired immediately. The FBI should be unbiased, neutral, and dispassionate; these texts show that they have been anything but.
