Another silver lining.
At first blush, Jeff Sessions’ recusal from the trumped-up Russia collusion charges and the naming of Mueller as special persecutor looked like a slam dunk for the leftwing subversives seeking to overthrow the President. But the left is dirty. Every troll, operative, and goon. It’s how they do.
While trying desperately to implicate President Trump, the light is exposing them.
Peter Strzok, the top counterintelligence investigator investigating the fictional Trump campaign collusion with Russia, was a Trump hater — so much for the non-partisan, objective FBI. Peter Strzok’s texts to his to his girlfriend, Lisa Page, with whom he was engaging in an extramarital affair, expose what a Trump hater he was. At the time, Lisa Page worked for Deputy Director Andrew McCabe. The pro-Clinton McCabe is also under scrutiny for his involvement in the Clinton emails matter. Back in April, the Senate Judiciary Committee inquired about FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe’s role on the Trump probe, which is looking into potential collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian government. Iowa Sen. Chuck Grassley, the Judiciary Committee’s chairman, had expressed concerns about a potential conflict of interest given that McCabe’s wife ran a state campaign in Virginia that received $700,000 from Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe, a close friend of Clinton’s. Grassley noted in a March 28 letter to FBI Director James Comey that the McCabes met with McAuliffe on March 7, 2015, several days after the story broke that Clinton used a private email server as secretary of state. In the response letter to Grassley, FBI Assistant Director Gregory Bower both confirmed that McCabe is involved in the Trump investigation and denied that a recusal was necessary.

In any case, what Strzok contributed to the “case” should be stricken from the record.
Mueller reportedly ousted an investigator on his team over possible anti-Trump texts
Sonam Sheth, Business Insider, December 2, 2017:
- Special counsel Robert Mueller ousted a top counterintelligence investigator on his team because of an investigation into messages he sent that could be seen as critical of President Donald Trump.
- The investigator, Peter Strzok, worked on the FBI’s investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server before joining Mueller’s investigation into Russia’s interference in the 2016 election.
- Officials are examining the texts for evidence of bias in the Clinton and Trump investigations.
- They are reportedly concerned the messages will fuel Trump’s claim that the Russia probe is a political “witch hunt.”
Mueller is currently spearheading the FBI’s investigation into Russia’s interference in the 2016 election, including whether members of Trump’s campaign colluded with Moscow to tilt the election in his favor. He is also looking into whether Trump sought to obstruct justice when he fired FBI director James Comey in May.
Special counsel Robert Mueller ousted top counterintelligence veteran Peter Strzok from his team in August after the Justice Department’s inspector general began examining whether Strzok sent text messages that could be seen as critical of President Donald Trump, The New York Times reported on Saturday.
As the deputy head of counterintelligence, Strzok was widely considered one of the most experienced investigators in his field at the FBI. He worked extensively on the bureau’s inquiry into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server before joining Mueller’s team.
The Washington Post reported Saturday that while Strzok was working on the Clinton email investigation, he exchanged texts expressing anti-Trump sentiment with an FBI lawyer, Lisa Page, with whom the Post said he was engaging in an extramarital affair. At the time, Page worked for Deputy Director Andrew McCabe.
Page and Strzok reportedly continued exchanging politically charged texts throughout the 2016 campaign season. Strzok was subsequently removed from Mueller’s team after the inspector general began examining the messages.
Strzok’s and Page’s communications are now being examined for any evidence of bias in their handling of the Clinton and Trump investigations, according to The Post.
