Wow! Here’s an interesting twist to the ongoing controversy, regarding anti-Trump text messages sent between FBI agent Peter Strzok and his mistress, FBI attorney Lisa Page.
According to some of those recovered text messages, Strzok didn’t really feel Robert Mueller’s probe would bear much fruit, as far as finding any collusion between Trump’s campaign and Russia.
That’s right, folks. Strzok may have been anti-Trump, but he hadn’t convinced himself that there was absolutely collusion, and pretty much scoffed at the idea.
Senator Ron Johnson (R-Wis.), chairman of the Senate Homeland Security Committee released the texts between Strzok and Page. They were sent on May 19, 2017, which would be two days after Mueller was assigned as special counsel.
Strzok was expressing to Page that he was curious as to if he should even join the probe, or should he take his career elsewhere. She urged him not to, but he eventually decided to join Mueller’s team.
In one text, Strzok — the FBI’s deputy counterintelligence chief — said to Page, “You and I both know the odds are nothing. If I thought it was likely, I’d be there no question. I hesitate in part because of my gut sense and concerned there’s no big there, there.”
Crazy. Compare that to the texts that have Trump loyalists routinely wetting themselves over, and it’s like even though Strzok was less than a fan of Trump, so to speak, he wasn’t on a mission to deem Trump guilty of something, no matter what.
After Strzok and Page’s texts were discovered, Mueller booted Strzok down to FBI Human Resources. Page had already finished her assignment and moved on.
Senator Johnson received a few texts from the Department of Justice last week, and revealed the new discovery earlier Tuesday, during an interview with radio station WISN-Milwaukee.
“I think that’s kind of jaw-dropping,” said Johnson in the radio interview.
“In other words, Peter Strzok, who was the FBI deputy assistant director of the counterintelligence division, the man who had a plan to do something because he just couldn’t abide Donald Trump being president, is saying that his gut sense is that there’s no big ‘there’ there when it comes to the Mueller special counsel investigation,” Johnson added.
There’s a lot of loose talk about a so-called plan, before there was even an investigation, but Strzok seems pretty clear that his belief was that there was no need for a special counsel investigation.
And just like that, Peter Strzok becomes the hero of the Trumpidian hive.
