Posted on 03/13/2019 10:15:03 AM PDT by Kaslin
Former FBI attorney Lisa Page, who conspired with fired FBI agent Peter Strzok to stop Donald Trump if he won the presidency, testified in front of a closed door session on Capitol Hill last year. Now her testimony has been released, showing the extent to which the duo was willing to go with their efforts. It reveals the "insurance policy" discussed in text messages was likely Robert Mueller's Special Counsel investigation.
"If he is not elected, then, to the extent that the Russians were colluding with members of his team, we're still going to investigate that even without him being President, because any time the Russians do anything with a U.S. person, we care, and it's very serious to us," Page said about her thinking under questioning from former Congressman Trey Gowdy. "But if he becomes President, that totally changes the game because now he is President of the United States. He's going to immediately start receiving classified briefings. He's going to be exposed to the most sensitive secrets imaginable. And if there is somebody on his team who wittingly or unwittingly is working with the Russians, that is super serious."
Text messages found between Page and Strzok, with whom she was having an affair, discuss a meeting in fired Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe's office to go over an "insurance policy." A number of other messages showed Strzok and Page repeatedly slamming Trump and his supporters while favoring the election of Hillary Clinton.
Further, her testimony reveals there was no evidence of collusion at the time the Special Counsel investigation was launched in May 2017. Nearly two years later, there is still no evidence.

As a reminder, the Department of Justice Inspector General found the anti-Trump messages exchanged between Page and Strzok to be deeply troubling. From a report released in August 2018:
"During the course of the review, the OIG discovered text messages and instant messages between some FBI employees on the investigative team, conducted using FBI mobile devices and computers, that expressed statements of hostility toward then candidate Donald Trump and statements of support for then candidate Clinton," the report states. "We were deeply troubled by text messages exchanged between Strzok and Page that potentially indicated or created the appearance that investigative decisions were impacted by bias or improper considerations."
"Most of the text messages raising such questions pertained to the Russia investigation, which was not a part of this review. Nonetheless, when one senior FBI official, Strzok, who was helping to lead the Russia investigation at the time, conveys in a text message to another senior FBI official, Page, 'No. No he won’t. We’ll stop it' in response to her question '[Trump’s] not ever going to become president, right? Right?!', it is not only indicative of a biased state of mind but, even more seriously, implies a willingness to take official action to impact the presidential candidate’s electoral prospects. This is antithetical to the core values of the FBI and the Department of Justice," the report continues.

Would that include Uranium One and the Clinton Foundation, Lisa?
Oh, sorry. Just joking. That never happened, eh?
The smugness and arrogance of these people is breathtaking....................
Confirmation of what everyone knew happened. Confirmation with no prosecution only serves to rub our noses in it.
PROOF POSITIVE: Mueller was not hired to investigate Trump; he was hired to cover up crimes,
his own and those of his fellow travelers: the elaborate plot to derail the Trump campaign
and when that failed, to orchestrate Trump's impeachment by any means necessary.
(HAT TIP MAGUA) These are Gestapo tactics under cover of "Special Counsel":
<><>Making Ivanka and Don Jr. rat out their parents.
<><>Sending a Prussian to break down your door at 5 AM with guns drawn.
<><> 80 innocent people on Nadler's list---set to be rounded up like cattle to the slaughter.
These people are Gestapo thugs. Trump told us.....they are not after the president...... they are after us.
so the Dems think the US is a Banana Republic where the Russians can change elections ,LOL
[The smugness and arrogance of these people is breathtaking....................]
Remember their text messages after they saw the pro-life people outside?
NO OTHER PERSON COULD ENDURE THE AMOUNT OF INVESTIGATIVE SCRUTINY PRESIDENT TRUMP HAS ENDURED!!!
And Congress now has known this for a YEAR, and not done a single, damned thing about it. Why is that?
Was that the ‘smelly wal-mart people’ text?.................
And remember how people here praised the Keebler Elf, Jeff Sessions? Its all 4D chess. He is quietly collecting information so as not to arouse suspicion. Sessions new DOJ will bring the hammer down on these conspirators any day now. etc, etc..
Sessions was just another deep-state agent, either forced on Trump, or stupidly agreed to by him, to box Trump in.
Unless something changes structurally we're screwed.
Obama created a police state. The US Intel Apparat was commandeered in the spying operation.
US intel apparat is there to protect the safety and security of Americans----it is not a political tool.
Obama and his team used extraordinary underhanded Third World methods to spy on candidate Trump ....and were fixated on preventing his election.
The game plan changed when Trump was elected. They had to oust Trump using any means possible....real or invented.
Explains the goofy, OMG! look on the Halfrican's face when he met Pres-elect Trump.
The dirt Hillary was supposed to sweep under the carpet is now in the hands of the man they tried to destroy.
I can’t remember it exactly. But there was a text about a pro-life gathering and were saying how much they hated “those people”. Maybe Liz has it.
If Lisa Page is actually spilling the beans then she is a patriot.
The SocDems don’t think it is a bana republic. Yet. They are trying to make it so.
They’re “deeply troubled” by it, isn’t that enough?
Sessions was the only Senator that backed him, he had me fooled too, I thought he would be a great AG.
Turns out to have been the insurance policy.
