‘We Can’t Take That Risk’ — FBI Officials Discussed ‘Insurance Policy’ Against Trump Presidency
The Daily Caller ^ | 12/13/2017 | Chuck Ross

Posted on 12/13/2017 4:49:37 AM PST by EVO X

Two FBI officials who worked on Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation exchanged text messages last year in which they appear to have discussed ways to prevent 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,” 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.

It doesn’t matter. Repukes are going to be having hussy hearings about Trump accusers and his will all go unnoticed

Since when is it the job of the FBI to try and thwart
the electoral process?

We need (and won’t get) a congressional investigation.

But most likely so many members of congress are compromised that they won’t do anything.

Drain the swamp!

Sounds like intra agency collusion to overthrow a presidential election, doesn’t it?
Even to the point of termination with extreme prejudice
And now this scheming seditious bureaucrat is head of FBI human resources?

“We need (and won’t get) a congressional investigation.”

What we neee is criminal trials, convictions, and very long prison terms.

We won’t get those either.

While he was praising Clinton, Strzok was working at the center of the investigation into the Democrat’s use of a private email server. He emailed Clinton on July 2, 2016 — three days before then-FBI Director James Comey cleared her of criminal wrongdoing.

Interesting. I wonder what Strzok said in that email of July 2, 2016.

Drip drip drip for the testimony next week.

IMO everything “andy” says and does is being monitored anyway... but i am still anxious to see some people handcuffed and charged with sedition.

We’ve had 4 presidents assassinated - but to my knowledge there has not ever been a coup attempt... until now.

What’s their insurance policy? An FBI assassination of the President? Or do they contact the CIA for those sorts of operations? These people are beyond sick. They’re treasonous. And McCabe is in on it.

Congress has a committee looking into it. That committee has had these messages for a few weeks now. That is why Jim Jordan laid out a road map during FBI director Wray’s appearance last week.

“We can’t take that chance” of Trump being elected Strozk is the same guy who: 1) interviewed Hillary’s staff and changed the memo to Comey from her being grossly negligent to “extremely careless”; 2) interviewed Flynn with the supposed false statement Flynn made about contacts with the Russian ambassador being the basis for the perjury count against him. I wonder who the “we” is; was it just him and his illicit lover, Page, who ends up on the Mueller prosecution team or did “we” include McCabe and Comey??

I didn’t notice this; the “path we laid out in Andy’s office”?? Was there a plot discussed to block the election of a presidential candidate in the FBI assistant director’s office?? If so, this is a far bigger scandal than Watergate and will tarnish the FBI forever. Where is the Special Prosecutor, Mr. Sessions?

He is considering one, from a report I've read.

McCabe better be demoted TODAY. Then all of them involved need investigated thoroughly and prosecuted for every crime committed and every false statement made to others at the FBI.

Andrew McCarthy just said on Hugh Hewitt it’s not a big deal.

"Andy is likely Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe."

Saboteurs and treason....and nobody does anything about it.... The commies are so entrenched into our government that it's going to take an all out revolution to fix it....

The next administration is going to come for our arms... The Hildabeast would have done it.!! We have only delayed the inevitable with Trump...
