Kirsters Baish| Americans deserve to know the truth about what was really going on within the corrupt Obama-era FBI and DOJ, but the closest we may ever come is the damning text messages that were exchanged between FBI agents and lovers, Peter Strzok and Lisa Page. One text in specific has left a sour taste in the mouths of Americans, a text that Strzok sent to Page which read “we’ll stop” Trump from becoming President.
Veteran reporter of The Hill, John Solomon, explained that this text message isn’t where we need to be focused. Solomon knows what he’s talking about. He was the first to report on the FBI investigating Russian connections. He was also the first to report that the bureau had attempted to push a Russian oligarch to hand over evidence on Russian collusion with the Trump campaign. The oligarch was quoted as having said that they were “trying to create something out of nothing.”
Solomon penned an op-ed last month, in which he explained that we should be paying more attention to a text from Strzok that was sent on May 19, 2017. It read, “There’s no big there there.”
“The date of the text long has intrigued investigators: It is two days after Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein named special counsel Robert Mueller to oversee an investigation into alleged collusion between Trump and the Russia campaign. Since the text was turned over to Congress, investigators wondered whether it referred to the evidence against the Trump campaign. This month, they finally got the chance to ask. Strzok declined to say — but Page, during a closed-door interview with lawmakers, confirmed in the most pained and contorted way that the message in fact referred to the quality of the Russia case, according to multiple eyewitnesses. The admission is deeply consequential. It means Rosenstein unleashed the most awesome powers of a special counsel to investigate an allegation that the key FBI officials, driving the investigation for 10 months beforehand, did not think was ‘there,'” Solomon wrote.
It’s important not to forget that both Page and Strzok had strong opinions against Donald Trump.
Solomon wrote, “They sat on Carter Page’s phones and emails for nearly six months without getting evidence that would warrant prosecuting him. The evidence they had gathered was deemed so weak that their boss, then-FBI Director James Comey, was forced to admit to Congress after being fired by Trump that the core allegation remained substantially uncorroborated. In other words, they had a big nothing burger. And, based on that empty-calorie dish, Rosenstein authorized the buffet menu of a special prosecutor that has cost America millions of dollars and months of political strife.”
The veteran reporter explained that “Team Strzok” did everything they could to use the fabricated Trump “dossier” as evidence.
This is where the “There’s no big there there” text comes in.
“It turns out that what Strzok and Lisa Page were really doing that day was debating whether they should stay with the FBI and try to rise through the ranks to the level of an assistant director (AD) or join Mueller’s special counsel team,” Solomon wrote.
Conservative Tribune writes:
Strzok, apparently, didn’t want to be “one more AD like (redacted) or whoever,” instead preferring “An investigation leading to impeachment?”
“We should stop having this conversation here,” Page texted back, saying that they ought to consider “the different realistic outcomes of this case.”
“You and I both know the odds are nothing,” Strzok texted back. “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.”
Even though “the odds are nothing,” Strzok would join the special counsel investigation — until, of course, they started reading his texts. Then he was shuffled off to a role in HR.
The Hill contributor stated that Peter Strzok’s actions should seriously alarm every American citizen. Strzok’s behavior paints the image of a grim reality within our government.
Solomon penned, “Impeachment is a political outcome. The only logical conclusion, then, that congressional investigators can make is that political bias led these agents to press an investigation forward to achieve the political outcome of impeachment, even though their professional training told them it had ‘no big there there.’ And that, by definition, is political bias in action.”
“How concerned you are by this conduct is almost certainly affected by your love or hatred for Trump. But put yourself for a second in the hot seat of an investigation by the same FBI cast of characters: You are under investigation for a crime the agents don’t think occurred, but the investigation still advances because the desired outcome is to get you fired from your job. Is that an FBI you can live with?”
Americans need to listen to Solomon’s warning. It’s time for Mueller’s ridiculous witch hunt to come to a close and for Americans to finally learn the truth.
