The more we find out about the swamp, the worse it gets.
According to a transcript released on Tuesday, Lisa Page told congressional investigators last year that her lover and former FBI agent, Peter Strzok, joined Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation with the thought that it would end in the impeachment of President Trump and help his own career.
It gets worse.
According to the Washington Times, Page stated that the Justice Department decided to allow Hillary Clinton’s top aides to sit in on her FBI interview and went on to NOT pursue gross negligence charges in relation to her secret emails.
These transcripts from the interviews with the House were released by Rep. Doug Collins.
Check out what the Washington Times reported:
He entered the transcripts into the Congressional Record and released them over the reluctance of the Justice Department, which he said had been slow-walking their publication.
Last week, he released a transcript from Bruce Ohr, the Justice Department official who passed the salacious anti-Trump “Steele dossier” into the government’s hands.
Mr. Collins said the interviews give a picture of a small cabal at the FBI and Justice Department that was intent on trying to thwart the election of President Trump and then worked to investigate him once he was in office.
“The American people deserve to know what transpired in the highest echelons of the FBI during that tumultuous time for the bureau,” Mr. Collins said Tuesday.
Ms. Page was a lawyer working for then-FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe during the time in question. She was having an affair with Mr. Strzok, a lead agent on some of the key investigations involving Mrs. Clinton and Mr. Trump.
According to the transcripts, Ms. Page said she considered the investigation of Mr. Trump to be more serious than the one about Mrs. Clinton’s mishandling of top-secret information.
Trump’s investigation was more serious than Hillary’s? For the record, there was and still to this day, no evidence of wrongdoing by President Trump or his campaign considering the entire investigation was started by a FAKE dossier that the FBI knew to be fake.
Hillary on the other hand, committed blatant crimes but the FBI didn’t want to prosecute her because they were in bed with the Democratic candidate.
Page went on to say, “The Clinton investigation was whether she mishandled classified information. That’s important. It matters, but it does not matter like a person associated with a presidential campaign receiving and potentially accepting, which we didn’t know, obviously, but the risk that somebody had received and accepted an offer of assistance from Russia, which I view as our sort of most treacherous adversary.”
Here’s more from the Times report on the texts between Strzok and Page:
“Maybe you’re meant to stay where you are because you’re meant to protect the country from that menace,” Ms. Page texted Mr. Strzok.
During her House interview, she confirmed that the “menace” was Mr. Trump.
Mr. Strzok seemed conflicted about whether it was worth joining the special counsel’s investigation in 2017, given that it might peter out with nothing to show.
Ms. Page told the House committees that didn’t necessarily mean he wanted to find something, but he did have his eye on career advancement and a major takedown of a president would help that.
“If it’s going to end in impeachment, that’s kind of a big deal,” she said. “I mean, put aside who it is, put aside how we feel about it. You know, that’s monumental. People who are on Watergate are still known as somebody who was on Watergate.”
She insisted that wasn’t an attack on Mr. Trump, though.
“It’s about being on an unbelievably kick-ass team and being a part of, you know, something impressive,” she said.
Mr. Strzok ultimately was part of the team and worked for Mr. Mueller until the anti-Trump texts came to light. Mr. Mueller removed Mr. Strzok from the team and was fired by the FBI last summer.
Not only is this a corrupt abuse of power by the two lovers, but it is an obvious hit job on the President in an attempt to undermine Trump’s win and to defend Hillary at all costs.
It’s time that we hold these partisan hacks accountable!
