Robert Mueller’s Russia witch hunt has become a joke.
The goal of the investigation is no longer to find the truth, but instead to harm Republicans.
And things just got a lot more interesting after the last person Robert Mueller ever expected agreed to testify.
Robert Mueller has been discredited on many occasions.
Perhaps the most notable occasion was when it was revealed that two FBI agents involved in his investigation were caught exchanging extremely anti-Trump text messages.
The two agents, and lovers, Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, cast heavy doubt on the non-partisan nature of the investigation designed to find out if Russia collusion occurred.
While Strzok was removed from the investigation, he remains an FBI agent still today.
And he also feels that he should testify in front of Congress.
There have been calls for Strzok to testify before Congress for some time.
The first call came from Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz, who believed that Strzok’s text messages created the appearance that his investigation is biased against President Trump.
It’s hard to argue that his messages don’t create at least the appearance of bias in the investigation, considering that in August 2016 Strzok sent a message to Page stating that “we’ll stop” Trump from becoming President.
The “we” he was referring to was almost definitely meaning the FBI.
At the time of that text message, Strzok was a lead investigator in the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s email server.
Strzok later went on to have a key role in Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation but was removed because of mounting pressure in response to his anti-Trump text messages being released.
Being questioned before Congress could be disastrous for Robert Mueller, who has continually attempted to claim that his investigation is unbiased.
Strzok is seemingly the one interested in testifying, but that doesn’t mean he’s happy about it.
The Justice Department has been interested in having him testify for months, but it wasn’t until very recently when members of Congress threatened to force him to testify that he chose to testify.
Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee Rep. Bob Goodlatte (R-VA), made it clear this week that he will have Strzok testify, stating:
“If an agreement is not reached in the next day or so to produce him voluntarily, we will issue [a] subpoena early this week.”
The House Judiciary Committee is playing hardball now.
If Robert Mueller wants to subpoena everyone close to Trump, there is no reason Republicans shouldn’t do the same thing to those close to Mueller who have actual conflicts of interest worth looking closer into.
But as it turns out, all it took was that threat of a subpoena to convince Strzok that testifying is in his best interest.
Strzok’s lawyer, Aitan Goelman told the Washington Post that he will testify and that Strzok feels it is in his best interest for his reputation.
The FBI agent feels that his position, character, and actions have all been misrepresented.
He believes that testifying before Congress will clear his name.
But since his text messages were released, Strzok has been one of the worst things to happen to Robert Mueller’s investigation.
There is a high likelihood that him testifying will also be bad for Mueller.
