Michael Horowitz’s report on the FBI’s conduct in the Hillary Clinton email investigation lit Washington on fire.
The report exposed the bias and corruption that infected James Comey’s FBI.
But one bombshell message is the smoking gun that proved the FBI’s guilt in the Deep State plot against Trump.
It had been public for months that high-ranking FBI officials Peter Strzok and Lisa Page exchanged text messages about their hatred for then-candidate Donald Trump.
Page and Strzok even referred to the Russia investigation as an “insurance policy” against Trump winning the Presidency.
But that was just the tip of the iceberg.
The Department of Justice was covering up bombshell evidence that proved Trump was right when he claimed there was a Deep State embedded within the government that was conspiring against him.
One message between Strzok and Page – that was concealed from Congress – showed Page to be frightened that Trump would win the election.
Strzok tried to reassure Page that Trump would lose, texting back: “No. No he’s not. We’ll stop it.”
The Inspector General report highlighted this exchange and said it showed a “willingness” to use their official positions to stop Trump.
“It is not only indicative of a biased state of mind but, even more seriously, implies a 421 willingness to take official action to impact the presidential candidate’s electoral prospects.”
But there was even more damning findings.
Strzok sent the message to Page promising to stop a candidate Trump right after the FBI began operation “Crossfire Hurricane” – the codename given to the counterintelligence investigation into the alleged collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.
Horowitz wrote that Strzok – who also oversaw “Crossfire Hurricane” – may have been biased when he prioritized that investigation over the Clinton email investigation:
“Moreover, as we describe in Chapter Nine, in assessing Strzok’s decision to prioritize the Russia investigation over following up on the Midyear-related investigative lead discovered on the Weiner laptop in October 2016, these text messages led us to conclude that we did not have confidence that Strzok’s decision was free from bias.”
Given the flimsy evidence the FBI used to open “Crossfire Hurricane” – and that Strzok promised to stop Trump and called the investigation an “insurance policy” – Trump supporters believe the evidence strongly supports the conclusion that the Russia investigation was a politically motivated hit job.
Not to mention that these text messages were originally hidden from Congress.
Congressman Mark Meadows revealed that this text message was not turned over by the Department of Justice as part of Congresses oversight inquiry.
“…this Peter Strzok text about “stopping” Donald Trump was hidden from Congressional investigators. We never had it. Absolutely unreal.”
The whole thing stinks.
Not only does smoking gun evidence that the FBI targeted Donald Trump for political spying exist, but that the Department of Justice covered it up.
