Posted on 05/23/2018 11:57:35 AM PDT by Meet the New Boss
If the thousands of text messages between Ms. Page and Agent Strzok are clear on anything, they are clear on the thinking of the bureaus top brass.
In its Trump antipathy, the media-Democrat complex has admonished us to ignore the Strzok-Page texts....
Thats the wrong way to look at it. Regardless of their politics (which, the texts show, are not as left-wing as some conservative-media hyperbole claims), these FBI officials are a window into how the Obama administration regarded the two investigations in which Strzok and Page were central players: Mid Year Exam and Trump-Russia the latter eventually code-named Crossfire Hurricane.
The two investigations must not be compartmentalized. Manifestly, the FBI saw them as inseparably linked: Trumps victory in the primaries, the opening of his path to the Oval Office, meant first and foremost that the Hillary investigation had to be brought to a close.
With the pressure to finish MYE in the rearview mirror, Hillary Clinton looked like a shoo-in to beat Donald Trump. By mid September, Lisa Page was saying as much at a meeting in Deputy Director McCabes office. But Strzok was hedging his bets: Maybe theres no way [Trump] gets elected but Im afraid we cant take that risk. Its like an insurance policy in the unlikely event you die before youre 40.
Soon, as the campaign wound down, the FBI and the Obama Justice Department were on the doormat of the FISA court, obtaining a surveillance warrant on Carter Page, substantially based on allegations in the Steele dossier an uncorroborated Clinton-campaign opposition-research screed. Meanwhile, the FBI/CIA spy was being run at George Papadopoulos, and even seeking a role in the Trump campaign from its co-chairman, Sam Clovis.
Or maybe you think these things are unrelated . . .

A glass nearly empty of vodka comes flying at her advisors from across the room.
Flying Monkeys: "Yes, Your Cankleship. The investigation will be closed and we'll have the Boy Scout, not Loretta, publicly announce that you're not a crook."
Hillary: "That's not enough. It's not fair that I'm under FBI investigation, and that TV reality-show misogynist pig is not! I want Trump under FBI investigation, and I want that now! And for good measure, make him appear guilty of some of the things we caught Bill doing."
Flying Monkeys: "Your wish is our command Your Royal Thighness!"
Hillary seizes up; her head spins around like Linda Blair; and then she faceplants into the floor.
Russia was invented so that the email cover-up would not be exposed.
Hillary simply HAD to win so that they could cover-up their cover-up of the email scandal.
If Trump won, they would all hang from nooses. That seems to have been fully understood by all.
Hillary Clinton had top secret information on a private server in her home.
Why isn’t this woman in prison?
"Yes, Your Cankleship."
I want ONE person to show me ANY evidence Paige and Stryok had an Affair?
What I see is a Conspiracy...two people shifting facts and planning to take Trump down Politically.This whole having an affair claim is a cover story for them texting so much. IMHO
No Where have I seen ANYTHING that even remotely suggests they were lovers.
Andrew McCarthy: IF you have such evidence POST IT!
Well done. I can picture that.
Agree. No honey, sweetie or any other affectionate talk between them.
With each passing day I’m getting more convinced that the Trump campaign knew about the surveillance while it was going on, and used it to their advantage to win the election.
They arent that Liberal?
They went into deep Depression saying it was a living Nightmare after Trump won.
Strzok said he couldnt stand to be in a Walmart because he could smell the Trump Supporters!
Strzok was ecstatic when he was told he could got to London and Get Trump!
He said this was the Investigation hes been waiting for!
He said, with Hillary, we were just steering and making sure nobody F ed it up.
The writer would not stand to have anyone that Hated Hillary Investigating her. This is the DC Double Standard.
Why, so the libs can claim going after them is all about sex and talk about that tabloidy and completely irrelevant stuff instead of what the two were doing to undermine the election results and the presidency?
Besides, the lover boy angle gave Mueller an excuse to slow walk everything since the personal stuff had to be reviewed and redacted, and that took time.
No evidence presented, simply stated in The Nunes Memo:
"Strzok was reassigned by the Special Counsels Office to FBI Human Resources for improper text messages with his mistress, FBI Attorney Lisa Page (no known relation to Carter Page), where they both demonstrated a clear bias against Trump and in favor of Clinton, whom Strzok had also investigated."
Doesn't make it true, but inasmuch as it's from Nunes's committee, there must be something behind it, perhaps statements to the committee by the FBI.
