Yes, Investigate the Investigators
National Review ^ | December 14, 2017

Posted on 12/14/2017 10:07:03 AM PST by reaganaut1

The Department of Justice and the FBI are developing a credibility problem. The last two weeks have brought a blizzard of revelations about the anti-Trump political predilections of top FBI officials and prosecutors in Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s office, perhaps none more eye-popping than a just-revealed text from Peter Strzok, a top FBI intelligence agent.

In August 2016, Strzok, who played a lead-investigator role in the Hillary Clinton–emails investigation, flatly stated that the FBI could not “take that risk,” referring to the possibility that Donald Trump might be elected president. He made the statement in a message to Lisa Page, a bureau lawyer with whom he was having an extramarital affair. Strzok referred to an alternative FBI “path” regarding Trump’s “unlikely” election that Page had proposed during a meeting they’d attended in “Andy’s office” — meaning deputy director Andrew McCabe, the bureau’s number-two official, second only to then-director James Comey.

While more context is necessary to understand the meaning of the text and what transpired in the meeting in McCabe’s office, the message raises the possibility that top bureau officials were infecting investigations with their personal political views. This would be a concern in any circumstance, but especially in this one. The FBI’s Clinton-email and Trump-Russia investigations have been extremely fraught politically — with the latter morphing into Mueller’s Russia probe, which conceivably could result in an impeachment referral.

Along with them the same holds true of Rod Rosenstein.

Just as Rep. Jim Jordan told Rosenweeny yesterday. you have 2 choices:

Shut down Mueller now, or appoint a special council to investigate the investigators

The FBI has become a globalist (political) stasi.

It matters little if there are good men therein, since there are enemies of lawful, USA law thru-out, from the top to the bottom.

IMO, Ohr & Ohr is more troubling than Strzok & Bae.

At least have a 2nd investigation team to run parallel to the Russia investigation.

Indeed they are! Ohr & Ohr were paid by the government for their seditious acts and are deeply involved in constructing the Russian Dossier with the British spy. That was the entire basis for the FISA wiretaps that Comey and Mueller were using as “Insurance” in the “Unlikely” event that Trump was elected.

The entire charade has been laid bare right before the world’s eyes. Trump is carefully watching this and will not let this go without notice. They never really thought he’d be WATCHING the WATCHERS but they weren’t quite as clever as they though they were. The media can’t ignore this coup forever.

Strzok(FBI) & Page(FBI)
Ohr(DOJ) & Ohr(FusGPS)
McCabe(FBI) & McCabe(Political$$)
Comey(FBI) & Mueller(SC) & Rosenstein(DOJ)

There will be more...and they are all traitorous Liberals.

I have been calling him RosenKrantz (because, uh, reasons...)but Rosenweeny just instantly morphed into Rosenweasel as I like to call Mueller, Comey, McCabe and their FBI den cohorts Weasels ever since Comey said “..but, Don’t call us Weasels...”.

Apparently neither does Drudge given he is still burying cover corruption at the highest level of the DOJ and FBI.
