The FBI ’s investigation into unproven “collusion” between the Trump team and Russia was supposed to bring down his presidency, at least if the loudest shrieking Democrats were right.
Instead, it looks like that tactic has completely backfired. It’s now the FBI that appears corrupt and has found itself at the center of a scandal, while President Trump may be vindicated after all.
According to Bloomberg News, Congress is preparing contempt charges against both Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and FBI Director Christopher Wray, based on the claim that the federal agencies are burying evidence that was requested by lawmakers.
At the core of the controversy is a glaring problem: It has been revealed that a key FBI official involved in the “collusion” investigation had a clear anti-Trump and pro-Hillary Clinton bias.
In other words, the FBI probe is starting to look a bit like a witch-hunt that was motivated by politics all along.
“(T)he official, Peter Strzok, was removed after allegedly having exchanged anti-Trump and pro-Hillary Clinton text messages with his mistress, who was an FBI lawyer working for Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe,” Bloomberg reported.
Strzok was apparently deeply involved in not only the Trump dossier and collusion probes, but also the the now-famous Hillary Clinton email investigation which magically cleared her of wrongdoing before even interviewing her.
That top investigator has now been dismissed from his position, but it appears that the FBI concealed his involvement in going after Trump and may have purposely obstructed Congress when it requested details about the investigation.
“In light of today’s press reports, we now know why Strzok was dismissed, why the FBI and DOJ refused to provide us this explanation, and at least one reason why they previously refused to make Deputy Director McCabe available to the Committee for an interview,” declared Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes.
“By hiding from Congress, and from the American people, documented political bias by a key FBI head investigator for both the Russia collusion probe and the Clinton email investigation, the FBI and DOJ engaged in a willful attempt to thwart Congress’ constitutional oversight responsibility,” he said. Emphasis added.
It’s worth pointing out that it takes more than one rogue investigator inside an agency to completely stonewall Congress and cover up bias.
What this means is chilling: There’s now strong evidence that an entire swath of top people at the FBI tried to pull strings to target the president, and purposely hid this from the people’s representatives in Washington.
It’s one thing to find a few holdouts from a past administration pouting that their candidate didn’t win.
It is something else entirely to realize that a whole group of politically motivated zealots within once-respected agencies have been doing everything they can to undermine the president of the United States.
Ironically, every attempt to bring down President Trump has resulted in establishment insiders over-playing their hand and sabotaging themselves.
In their zeal to play political games, the elitists in places like the FBI and the Department of Justice have been exposed as part of the “swamp.”
They need to go… even if they have to be dragged out kicking and screaming after being charged with contempt. The American people — and Congress — are finally fed up with these antics.
