Reports: Mueller fires two from FBI assigned to his team whose anti-Trump texts could taint inquest

Published

on

Multiple media outlets are reporting today details of how two romantically-involved FBI agents assigned to Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s investigation of possible collusion between Donald J. Trump’s presidential campaign and Russian government officials were fired by Mueller after he became aware of their text messages disparaging the president and praising Hillary R. Clinton–including commentary about presidential debate performances.

The New York Times reported today that senior FBI agent Peter Strzok, the bureau’s deputy head of counter-intelligence, was reassigned to the FBI’s human resources section after Mueller learned of his text messages that came to light during FBI Inspector General Michael E. Horowitz’s inquiries.

The Times also reported that Horowitz is investigating the circumstances of FBI Director James B. Comey Jr.’s handling of investigation Hillary R. Clinton’s private email server that she used for all official electronic correspondence while she was leading the State Department.

Strzok participated in the FBI’s July 2, 2016 interview with Clinton before Comey announced July 5 that he would recommend that no criminal charges be brought against Clinton–a decision documents appear to show that Comey arrived at before his investigation began.

In September, ABCNews reported on Strzok’s departure as a “stepping away” from an investigation that he was hired to lead in a remarkable exhibit of source-massaging by reporters Pierre Thomas and Mike Levine.:

It’s unclear why Strzok stepped away from Mueller’s team of nearly two dozen lawyers, investigators and administrative staffers. Strzok, who has spent much of his law enforcement career working counterintelligence cases and has been unanimously praised by government officials who spoke with ABC News, is now working for the FBI’s human resources division.

One source told ABC News today he’s sorry Mueller’s team no longer has Strzok’s experience and insight at its disposal.

Strzok is no stranger to complex and controversial investigations.

As chief of the FBI’s counterespionage section last year, he helped oversee the FBI’s investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server when she was the secretary of state, and he took part in the bureau’s interview of her.

Within weeks of the end of the Clinton probe, Strzok found his office facing a new challenge: Investigating Russia’s alleged efforts to influence last year’s presidential election, including hacking of Democratic National Committee computers.

In the same report, Thomas and Levine also describe the surprise departure of the FBI attorney Lisa Page:

The latest FBI veteran to leave, Lisa Page, was described by media accounts in June as a trial attorney with “deep experience [in] money laundering and organized crime cases.” She was part of what Wired magazine called Mueller’s “investigatory dream team.”

But weeks ago, Page left the Special Counsel’s office and returned to work in the office of the FBI’s general counsel, sources said. According to one source, Page joined Mueller’s team on a short, temporary assignment and always expected to return as soon as that assignment ended.

This report is now exposed as a complete whitewash as The Washington Post has reported that Page was also fired by Mueller for the inappropriate texts she exchanged with Strzok:

During the Clinton investigation, Strzok was involved in a romantic relationship with FBI lawyer Lisa Page, who worked for Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, according to the people familiar with the matter, who spoke on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the issue.

The extramarital affair was problematic, these people said, but of greater concern among senior law enforcement officials were text messages the two exchanged during the Clinton investigation and campaign season, in which they expressed anti-Trump sentiments and other comments that appeared to favor Clinton.

If that was not enough excitement from the FBI, recall too, that Page worked for the same deputy director of the FBI, whose wife Dr. Jill McCabe received roughly  $700,000 in political donations for her state assembly race attributed to the good offices of Virginia Gov. Terence R. McAuliffe, the former head of the Democratic National Committee and friend of the Clinton.

This, of course, is the very same deputy director of the FBI, who is the target of a pending Equal Employment Opportunity Commission complaint by Supervisory Special Agent Robyn Gritz–a complaint supported by testimony from retired Army Lt. Gen. Michael T. Flynn–testimony Circa reported that the FBI tried to block.

Tommy Tuberville Says “We Can’t Worry About China Right Now”

Even though they allowed the disease to spread.

Published

on

Former football coach and Alabama US Senate candidate Tommy Tuberville said that “we can’t worry about China right now” in a radio appearance with Talk 99.5’s “Matt and Aunie Show on Thursday.

When asked by hosts about the implications of the global coronavirus epidemic on the United States’ relationship with China, Tuberville said, “Well, we can’t worry about China right now. We’ve gotta worry about Alabama and this country.

Tuberville is currently running to represent Alabama in the United States Senate, although he’s been registered as a Florida voter in the past.

His comments on China policy will leave many Americans concerned with the nation’s role in the coronavirus epidemic unsatisfied. Certainly, containing the epidemic in this country is the priority, but a wide range of conservatives and China hawks have already begun to discuss the need to fundamentally reevaluate the United States’ relationship with China. The damage already inflicted upon American society and the global economy does present a pressing case that such a question is in fact urgent.

Tuberville is running for Senator, not Governor. He could be forgiven if he was running for an office not entrusted with high-level foreign policy responsibilities, but Senators in the coming months and years will be entrusted with developing China policy that recognizes the authoritarian communist nation’s role in allowing and covering up the global coronavirus epidemic.

Contrasting in stark fashion, Tuberville’s opponent for the Republican nomination for US Senate in Alabama, Jeff Sessions, has called for a congressional select committee to investigate China’s role in covering up the dangers posed to the world by the coronavirus, the virus’ origin in Wuhan, and potentially lying about the casualties incurred as a result of the disease in China.

If Alabama voters want a Republican Senator who is going to be tough on China, it doesn’t look like Tommy Tuberville is up to task.
