It wasn’t enough that Robert Mueller stacked the deck with Democrat and, specifically, Hillary Clinton supporters? The FBI deck was stacked too?
From Karoun Demirjian and Devlin Barreet’s article for the (Trump-hating, let’s remember) Washington Post – and please pay special attention to the part I’ve put in bold print:
The former top FBI official assigned to special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe of Russian interference in the 2016 election was taken off that job this summer after his bosses discovered he and another member of Mueller’s team had exchanged politically charged texts disparaging President Donald Trump and supportive of Hillary Clinton, according to multiple people familiar with the matter.
Peter Strzok, as deputy head of counter-intelligence at the FBI, was a key player in the investigation into Clinton’s use of a private email server to do government work as Secretary of State, as well as the probe into possible coordination between the Trump campaign and Russia in the 2016 election.
During the Clinton investigation, Strzok was involved in a romantic relationship with FBI lawyer Lisa Page, who worked for Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, according to the people familiar with the matter, who spoke on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the issue.
The extramarital affair was problematic, these people said, but of greater concern among senior law enforcement officials were text messages the two exchanged during the Clinton investigation and campaign season, in which they expressed anti-Trump sentiments and other comments that appeared to favor Clinton.
The people discussing the matter did not further describe the political messages between Strzok and Page, except to say the two would sometime react to campaign news of the moment.
Officials are now reviewing the communications to see if they show evidence of political bias in their work on the cases, a review which could result in a public report, according to people familiar with the matter.
They’re exchanging anti-Trump emails, and there is a review to see if this shows political bias? What the %^#*@ do they think it shows? Neutrality?
If this were an investigation of Hillary Clinton, with a so-called Independent Counsel who loaded his staff with Republican and, specfically, Trump supporters, and we found out that the FBI involvement was anti Clinton as well, what do you suppose mainstream media would be doing? Looking the other way, as they are for the Mueller “investigation”.
This has stunk from day one. Every day it stinks worse. And these “journalists” know it stinks as well as I do.
It is a thoroughly tainted investigation and its continuation is a farce.
