Kirsters Baish| During a joint hearing this Tuesday with the House Judiciary Committee and the House Oversight Committee, Inspector General Horowitz stated that two more anti-Trump FBI lawyers are being looked at for possibly having been removed from Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation.
Republican House Oversight Chairman Trey Gowdy questioned the Inspector General, “Did you find any other FBI agents or FBI attorneys who manifest any animus or bias against President Trump?”
Horowitz’s response confirmed it. “We did. We found 3 additional FBI agents as we detailed in the report.”
Then, the House Oversight Chairman asked Horowitz if any of those lawyers had been taking part in the investigation into Trump’s alleged ties to Russia.
“I believe 2 of the 3 were but I would have to double check on that,” answered Horowitz.

Investigative reporter Paul Sperry wrote on Twitter today, “BREAKING: IG Horowitz just testified that the two unidentified biased FBI investigators (in addition to Stzok and Page) assigned to the Mueller investigation are no longer working for the special counsel, and at least one of them was “removed” due to the anti-Trump text messages.”

The Inspector General spoke of five anonymous FBI agents who were being referred to be investigated. This decision came after new anti-Trump text messages were unearthed.
The Gateway Pundit reports of the text message situation:
FBI employees were simply referred to as “FBI attorney 2,” or “FBI employee.”
On Monday, a group of GOP lawmakers, led by Rep. Andy Biggs (R-AZ) sent a letter to Inspector General Horowitz demanding he release the names of the FBI employees named in the IG report.
Rep. Biggs brought up the Trump-hating ‘FBI attorney 2’ who messaged about ‘the resistance.‘
‘”For example, one FBI attorney texted “viva le resistance” when asked about his commitment to the incoming Trump administration in November 2016.”
We are left wondering why the names of the FBI officials who were removed from the case were redacted from the report by Horowitz. It’s more than likely the reason is that by releasing their names, it would link them to Mueller’s team of anti-Trump lawyers. Robert Mueller should just give it up. It’s been a year and a half, and they have found exactly NO credible evidence against Trump. It’s time for Mueller to be investigated.
Note: The word “assassins” in the title refer to the attempt to assassinate the President’s character and Presidency, not necessarily end his life.
