- As FBI Ramped Up “Witch Hunt” When Trump Fired Comey, Strzok Admitted Collusion Investigation A Joke
by Tyler Durden, https://www.zerohedge.com/
A Friday report in the New York Times revealing that the FBI supercharged its Trump-Russia collusion investigation after President Trump fired FBI director James Comey appears to have backfired – especially when one reviews internal FBI communications from the time period in question.
The Daily Caller‘s Chuck Ross has made a brilliant observation, noting Peter Strzok – then the FBI’s deputy chief of counterintelligence, admitted to his FBI lawyer mistress, Lisa Page, that there was no merit to the investigation.
Nine days after Comey was fired and the DOJ “sought to determine whether Mr. Trump was knowingly working for Russia,” Strzok texted Page on May 18, 2017: “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 concern there’s no big there there.”
It is unclear from The Times report what information was used as a predicate to open the investigation. The article suggests that the FBI had long considered the move and that Comey’s firing and Trump’s subsequent comments marked a tipping point.
A source close to Strzok told The Daily Caller News Foundation on Jan. 26, 2018, shortly after the text was released, that the message reflected Strzok’s concern that the FBI would not find evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia. –Daily Caller
