Peter Strzok

Peter Strzok’s arrogance is the product of a corrupt FBI

Michael Goodwin, New York Post

Strzok appears to be a chip off the Comey/McCabe block. Like them, he insists he is committed to the FBI’s high standards, but his reprehensible conduct makes a mockery of his claims. His stated contempt for Trump and his promise to stop him from becoming president render Strzok unfit to be a dogcatcher. But, aping his mentors, he nonetheless demands his denials of wrongdoing be accepted as if his integrity is self-evident. All three believe they are entitled to trust and respect, without having to earn or return either.

Rep. Louie Gohmert Drops Strzok Hearing’s Bombshell Revelation

We urge CHQ readers and friends to contact Attorney General Jeff Sessions (202-514-2000) to demand that Peter Strzok be fired for dereliction of duty for failing to investigate the information presented to him by the Intelligence Community Inspector General as documented by Rep. Louie Gohmert at yesterday’s House Judiciary Committee hearing.

Is Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein Still Smirking?

Yesterday, Rep. Jim Jordan grilled Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein about the documents he has been withholding from Congress, as Rosenstein smirked his way through the questioning. But Rosenstein may not be smirking now as the House passed a resolution demanding he comply with its subpeonas by July 6.

What did Peter Strzok do?

Strzok isn’t just any rank-and-file guy spouting off in one ill-advised email. His fingerprints were on every FBI investigation that stood to impact Clinton’s presidential candidacy or to hurt Trump before and after the 2016 election. The earth-shattering finding on Strzok by the inspector general (IG) confirms a citizenry’s worst fears: A high-ranking government intel official allegedly conspired to affect the outcome of a U.S. presidential election.

Hillary’s Fiends in High Places

George Neumayr, The American Spectator

Strzok told his mistress that he wanted Hillary to beat Trump “100,000,000-0,” and that he would “stop” his victory. It appears that Strzok deleted the latter text, not realizing that his FBI device had stored it elsewhere, only to be excavated later by Horowitz’s Internet wizards. Hillary’s fiends in high places were hoist by their own petard, thereby revealing the most grotesque irony in the 2016 race: one government did most certainly and corruptly interfere in it — theirs.

Mueller Has Strzok Out

George Neumayr, The American Spectator

The toxic origins of the Mueller probe are impossible to expunge. His report will represent nothing more than the fulfillment of the “insurance policy” Strzok and his mistress discussed in Andrew McCabe’s office a few doors down from Comey’s — a plot to impeach Trump via harassing investigation if they couldn’t defeat him at the ballot box. The odor Strzok gives off is unmistakable too — and its rancidity will suffuse every page of Mueller’s report.

'Ethical Leader' James Comey Referred For Criminal Investigation

The IG report is a blistering rebuke of James Comey, who has spent recent months on a book tour promoting his brand of “ethical leadership.” Now, Inspector General Michael Horowitz has confirmed that his office is investigating Comey for his handling of classified information.

The IG Report: Obama Knew

After reading the Inspector General's report it is clear to us that many of the contortions the FBI and Department of Justice went through weren’t to protect Hillary Clinton, they were to protect Obama from being exposed as a liar and an accessory in Hillary Clinton’s misdeeds.

IG Report: FBI Agent Said Trump Voters 'Poor, Uneducated, Lazy, POS'

J. Christian Adams, PJ Media

The anti-Trump bias on the FBI team investigating Hillary Clinton extended to multiple agents beyond Strzok and Page, who regularly sent texts critical of Trump and supportive of Hillary. Other FBI agents on the Hillary investigation ridiculed the “average American public.” Others referred to Donald Trump as "Donald Drumpf" on FBI instant messages repeatedly. Even after the election, FBI agents complained about being on duty on Inauguration Day. “F*** Trump,” wrote one agent on the Hillary investigation in an FBI communication.

The Anatomy of a Partisan Pile-Up

George Neumayr, The American Spectator

With poetic justice, Strzok’s partisan turning away from the real Hillary probe to the fake Trump one in the final month of the campaign inadvertently destroyed his dream: crucial weeks passed as senior brass ignored her emails on Weiner’s laptop, causing so much anger and turmoil at the field level that Comey had no choice but to acknowledge publicly re-opening the investigation before any leaking from angry agents exposed him. Then, as the IG report notes (by quoting dismayed agents), he closed the investigation as dishonestly as he re-opened it, thereby underlining what a sham the investigation was from the start.

White House Nails Democrat Memo On Spying Scandal #HeadsMustRoll

The White House press office termed the Democratic effort “nothing more than a hyper-partisan effort to obscure and deflect from deeply troubling potential abuses of the FISA court brought to light by Intelligence Committee Republicans” and we would have to agree.

The Special Counsel Is Looking At The Wrong Administration

The point of counterintelligence and cybersecurity is not point fingers after the enemy has executed an intelligence operation – in this case an act of information warfare – it is to prevent it from happening. However, as far as we can tell, not only did Team Obama do nothing to stop the Russians, they helped them by undermining the peaceful transfer of power to President Trump.

Fighting Russian Interference In American Politics

It shouldn’t take a Special Counsel investigation to identify and expose Russian activities we know have been going on for a century.  It is time for America to get back in the counterintelligence fight by cleaning house and getting rid of incompetent counterintelligence operatives such as the FBI's Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, and it is time for Congress, as it did with the HUAC investigations, to plumb the full depth of Russian efforts to sow discord in our country.

Is It Time To Shut Down The FBI?

It's time for radical change at the Department of Justice where Attorney General Jeff Sessions has been hobbled by careerist underlings, such as FBI Director Wray and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who have worked harder at protecting their fellow careerists and their institutional turf than they have worked at protecting the American people.

Investigating The Messenger #HeadsMustRoll

Instead of looking into whether one of the highest-ranking officials in the United States government had been compromised by a foreign power, the Obama-era FBI and Department of Justice decided to investigate the messenger, a political small fry with no power to affect policy or, for example, approve selling 20 percent of America’s uranium to the Russians.

#HeadsMustRoll Why There Must Be A Special Counsel To Investigate FISA Abuse

The Steele criminal referral we reported on last week in essence asks the FBI to investigate a source with whom FBI officials collaborated, and whose evidence they used in a fashion that’s under congressional investigation. The referral reveals the deep conflicts of interest of Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and others who signed the questionable wiretap applications using the Steele dossier.
