Washington was rocked last evening by revelations that a pro-Clinton mole in the FBI may have had a hand in getting Hillary off the hook for her criminal behavior as secretary of state and her use of a private email server.
As we reported last night, agent Peter Strzok was removed from Special Counsel Mueller’s investigation team that’s looking into possible Russia-Trump collusion. He was removed for expressing anti-Trump sentiment in messages to a mistress, an FBI lawyer.
Then the bombshell hit. Strzok was the very agent who changed the FBI’s description of Hillary’s behavior with the email server from “grossly negligent” to “extremely careless,” thereby not triggering any criminal repercussions.
CNN reported the following: “A former top counterintelligence expert at the FBI, now at the center of a political uproar for exchanging private messages that appeared to mock President Donald Trump, changed a key phrase in former FBI Director James Comey’s description of how former secretary of state Hillary Clinton handled classified information, according to US officials familiar with the matter.”
Ben Shapiro succinctly summed up the shock many of us had at this revelation:
So the same anti-Trump agent (1) signed the opening of the Russia investigation; (2) changed the language on Comey’s Hillary investigation to avoid her criminality; (3) interviewed Flynn? Is this possibly right?!

But it gets worse. Not only did Strzok help Clinton in the midst of her presidential campaign, he may have also let Clinton aides get away with lying to the FBI.
The Daily Caller’s Chuck Ross reports: “The FBI agent who was fired from Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation team for sending anti-Donald Trump text messages conducted the interviews with two Hillary Clinton aides accused of giving false statements about what they knew of the former secretary of state’s private email server.”
More from the report: “Neither of the Clinton associates, Cheryl Mills and Huma Abedin, faced legal consequences for their misleading statements, which they made in interviews last year with former FBI section chief Peter Strzok.”
Yet again, Strzok lets the Clinton campaign get away with committing crimes.
There is something very unseemly to all of this, and it looks like the Justice Department needs to launch an investigation of Mueller’s investigation! Just what the hell is going on inside the FBI?
