According to a big 136 page batch of recently disclosed emails, there was a lot of conspiracy happening between Peter Strzok and Lisa Page “in the days prior to and following President Donald Trump’s inauguration.” Somebody went crazy with the magic marker so most of what was released is “heavily redacted.” The bits and pieces that are left indicate Strzok, Page and top officials at the Federal Bureau of Instigation were frantically scrambling to set up a “White House counterintelligence briefing,” engineered to “play into” the FBI’s “investigative strategy.” In other words, a conspiracy to overthrow President Donald Trump.
Emails prove Trump was ‘targeted’ by the FBI
When Judicial Watch checked their mailbox on Thursday, they were surprised with a package from the DOJ. Over 136 pages of heavily redacted emails. “These documents suggest that President Trump was targeted by the Comey FBI as soon as he stepped foot in the Oval Office,” explains Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. There was an added bonus in the box. “Now we see how the Comey FBI was desperate to spin, through high-level leaks, its mishandling of the Clinton email investigation.
The night before President Donald Trump took the oath of office, a “series of emails were exchanged” between all the bigwig lawyers in the General Counsel’s office of the FBI. The top spooks from the Counterintelligence Division and Washington Field Office sat in, along with included then-Deputy Director Andrew McCabe. To round out the meeting, former Assistant Director for the Counterintelligence Division Bill Priestap attended. Basically, the Obamagate “plumbers.”
Lisa Page revealed that the Deep State Department of Injustice was “making edits to FBI 302 reports.” Not just any interview reports but ones “related to the Clinton Midyear Exam investigation.” That’s confirmed by an August 2016 email tapped out by Strzok that says “Clinton, in her interview with the FBI about her email controversy, apologized for ‘the work and effort’ it caused the bureau and she said she chose to use it ‘out of convenience’ and that ‘it proved to be anything but.'” Strzok spelled out that “Clinton’s apology and the ‘convenience’ discussion were ‘not in the FBI 302 report that summarized the interview.” How convenient. According to Judicial Watch, the emails also “detail a discussion about ‘squashing’ an issue related to the Seth Rich controversy.”
In one particular January 2017 thread of emails, Strzok got bent out of shape over “a UK Independent report which claimed Christopher Steele had suspected there was a ‘cabal’ within the FBI which put the Clinton email investigation above the Trump-Russia probe.” Strzok “was at the heart of both the Clinton email and Trump-Russia investigations,” and he was fuming because nobody was trying to frame Trump and Protect Hillary harder than he was.
A booby-trapped intelligence briefing
One of the spookiest things about the Obamagate conspiracy validated by the newest emails, is that on January 21, 2017, the day after Trump was sworn in, Strzok started laying tripwires. That’s the day he “forwarded to Lisa Page and a redacted person an email he’d sent that day to Priestap, asking them to ‘not forward/share.'” Strzok conspiratorially let them in on the plot. “I heard from [redacted] about the WH CI briefing routed from [redacted]. I am angry that Jen did not at least cc: me, as my branch has pending investigative matters there, this brief may play into our investigative strategy, and I would like the ability to have visibility and provide thoughts/counsel to you in advance of the briefing.” In normal English that means he’s mad to find out late but wants to make sure they can set up some kind of trap for the incoming administration at the meeting.
One thread of emails nails down the fact the FBI was leaking to the press like a sieve. One dated January 26, 2017 from Nancy McNamara of the FBI’s Inspection Division to Strzok and Priestap even had the subject line “Leak.” The message stated, “tried calling you but the phones are forwarded to SIOC. I got the tel call report, however [redacted]. Feel free to give me a call if I have it wrong.” In other words, this is what I plan to leak. Strzok passed it along to Lisa Page and an unidentified person in the General Counsel’s office, noting, “Need to talk to you about how to respond to this.”
On January 18, 2017, reporter Peter Elkind of ProPublica contacted the FBI wanting to interview “Strzok, Michael Steinbach, Jim Baker, Priestap, former FBI Director James Comey and DEA administrator Chuck Rosenberg for a story.” Arrangements started being set up for an article meant to be “the ‘definitive’ account of what happened during the Clinton investigation, specifically, Comey’s handling of the investigation, seeking to reconstruct and explain in much greater detail what he did and why he did it.” The article, when it came out, “strongly suggests many FBI officials leaked to the publication.” Especially when you piece it together with the newly disclosed emails.
