Today, FBI Director Christopher Wray sat in the congressional hot seat. Congressman Jim Jordan (R-OH), perhaps the most conservative lawmaker in Congress, demanded answers about Trump-hating FBI Agent Peter Strzok. He wanted to know if Strzok applied for a FISA warrant to spy on Trump campaign officials.
We’re only now learning that Strzok had usual communications with Fusion GPS, the research firm that generated the false Trump dossier used by Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign.
Jordan fired away: “Director, did Peter Strozk help produce and present the application to the FISA court to secure a warrant to spy on Americans associated with the Trump campaign?”
As you can see (below), Wray didn’t want to talk about details:
But as Jordan pointed out, most of Robert Mueller’s investigative team are Democratic donors. So why was Strzok singled out for anti-Trump texts to his mistress?
As you can see from the transcript, via The Washington Times, Jordan is convinced it’s because he applied for the FISA court warrant:
Why was Strzok — after all the leftist leanings he exhibited before being hired for Mueller’s team — why was he the one picked from all the bunches upon bunches of Democrat-loving Clinton and Barack Obama supporters working on this Russia collusion hunt to be the fall-guy for bias?
For a text message no less?
“Well here’s what I’m not getting. Peter Strozk is selected to be on Mueller’s team — after all this history, put on Mueller’s team — and then he’s removed for some pro-Clinton text messages,” Jordan said. “I mean there are all kinds of people on Mueller’s team who are pro-Clinton.”
Hmm. Good point, Mr. Jordan. Go on.
“If you kicked everybody off on Mueller’s team who was anti-Trump, I don’t think there’d be anybody left,” he said.
Right. And now for his main point: “It can’t just be some text messages … there’s got to be something more. And I’m trying to figure out what it is. But my hunch is, it has something to do with the dossier.”
Thud. This is where it gets really interesting.
And Jordan’s question to Wray went like this: “Director, did Peter Strozk help produce and present the application to the FISA court to secure a warrant to spy on Americans associated with the Trump campaign?”
Wray was not “prepared” to discuss applications tied to the FISA court, of course. But Jordan kept up the pressure — and then gave his own conclusion.
“Let’s remember a couple of things about the dossier,” he said. “The Democratic National Committee and the Clinton campaign, which we now know were one and the same, paid the law firm who paid Fusion GPS who paid Christopher Steele who then paid Russians to put together a report that we call a dossier full of all kinds of fake news, National Enquirer garbage and it’s been reported that this dossier was all dressed up by the FBI, taken to the FISA court and presented as a legitimate intelligence document — that it became the basis for a warrant to spy on Americans.”
The Trump dossier has been proven to be false, but has played a major role in recent indictments issued by Mueller’s legal team. And Fox News’ James Rosen shows Strzok played a central role in arranging to pay former MI6 agent Christopher Steele $50,000 to find evidence to verify the claims.
Why did the FBI proceed on the findings of the dossier and file for a warrant, even if they questioned the dossier’s facts? Apparently, because they were working to directly assist Hillary Clinton’s failed 2016 presidential campaign.
With these facts coming to light more than a year after the election, it’s even more amazing that President Donald Trump was able to pull off his historic victory.
Do you stand with Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) and the quest for the truth about the FBI and Peter Strzok? Please leave us a comment (below) and tell us.
