Here’s how Justice Department can learn truth from FBI agent Peter Strzok

By July 9, 2018Politics

On Thursday, Trump-hating FBI agent Peter Strzok, who oversaw the sham probe into Hillary Clinton’s emails and had a lead role in the genesis of the Russian “collusion” witch hunt, will testify before Congress. Here are a few questions lawmakers should ask:

• In a text message to FBI lawyer Lisa Page, you said you’ll stop Donald Trump from becoming president. Explain.

• Did anyone in government pressure you to clear Hillary Clinton and her associates despite evidence she and others broke the law?

• When discussing Clinton’s mishandling of classified information, you changed Comey’s language from “grossly negligent” to “extremely careless,” removing criminal liability. Why?

• In another text, you discussed an “insurance policy.” Was that the Russian collusion investigation —and massive disinformation campaign that accompanied it? If not, then what?

• Anyone else who handled classified information and emails as Clinton did would’ve been indicted for — at minimum — obstruction of justice. Why wasn’t she?

• You gave all Clinton associates immunity for nothing in return. Why? And why has no one associated with Trump received immunity from prosecution?

• While on the Mueller investigation, you lead a scorched earth investigation against Trump and his associates yet you used kid gloves with Clinton — whom you wanted to become president. Can you see how millions of Americans believe your extreme animus against Trump has jeopardized the integrity of both investigations?

• The FBI used a disgraced ex-British spy, Christopher Steele, as a source to launch a massive counterintelligence investigation against a U.S. presidential campaign after firing Steele for lying and leaking to media. Is it common practice for the FBI to use a source that by its own standard is discredited?

• Former FBI Director James Comey said Steele’s dossier was “unverified and salacious.” How can garbage intel be used to obtain FISA warrants to spy on a presidential campaign?

• What roles were played by former President Barack Obama, former FBI agent Andrew McCabe and Deputy Attorneys General Sally Yates and Rod Rosenstein in the Clinton email investigation?

A failure to obtain the truth — and hold those accountable who’ve lost our trust — will forever destroy the integrity of the U.S. Justice Department. Congress must prevent that from happening or America will officially become a police state whose law enforcement — not unlike Russia and North Korea — is used as a weapon to target political opponents, and orchestrate political coups that nullify elections. A terrifying scenario for all Americans.
