There have been several blogs about corruption in our nation’s Capitol and we watch closely since there are any number of investigations ongoing in one form or another. The interesting part in that realm is that there appears to have been situations with FBI officials’ involvement in a potential cover-up.
The fingers are beginning to point at possible subversive involvement on the part of the FBI, and if not sanctioned by the agency, then certainly on the part of rogue FBI officials. Obviously, if this can be substantiated, there is a major scandal about to break wide open with fingers that will likely reach into cracks and crevices within the FBI proper that have heretofore not been suspect, at least on the front pages of newspapers and as the lead story on national news programs.
The obvious question, to a layperson, at least, is how can we rely on anything developed by the FBI if, in fact, it participated in efforts to impact investigations beyond simply gathering evidence and making it available to pertinent organizations for further investigation and potential charges.
Congressman Trey Gowdy was interviewed earlier on this matter and was asked by The show host, America’s Newsroom host ‘Smith’ what all this told him. His response was:
We need to know a couple of things. Number one we need to know how the world’s premier law enforcement agency managed to lose five months worth of texts. And what is troubling in the text we do have they’re discussing how to avoid texts being captured and secured. So what is missing is important but also what is there is important. It is manifest bias not just against Trump, but against his kids, against his business interests. There is a text where they hope the Trump Hotel fails. That is a “level of bias that is stunning among law enforcement officers.” What is also troubling to me is this text that Johhny Ratcliffe found last night about this secret society. Now, I have no clue what that means because it is not the phraseology I used. But, it’s the day after the election and it’s the same two people that were discussing a little bit later in the text the damage they had done with the Clinton investigation and how they could, quote, fix it and make it right. That is a level of bias that is stunning among law enforcement officers.
Smith then asked Congressman (actually Senator) Ron Johnson (R-WI):
Congressman Johnson – you had a chance to see and hear what just came out of this radio interview with a local radio station, he read off one of the text messages that he says that he has just uncovered between two FBI agents and we don’t have exact verbatim but we know what he read off. That is (FBI Agent Peter) Strzok typing you and I both the odds are nothing. If I thought it likely I would be there no question. I hesitate in part because my gut concern is there is no big there. What does that tell you?
Gowdy then says:
That tells me two things. Number one – it actually tells me three things. First kudos to Johnson for getting this information. Secondarily, it tells me that one of the lead counter intelligence agents in the country doesn’t think there is anything there there. What disappoints me the most he has no interest in participating in an investigation that might clear Donald Trump. His only interest is if there is quote something there so he can then fix what he did with the Hillary Clinton e-mail investigation. I don’t know a cop that is not equally interested in clearing the innocent as they are getting the bad guys. So for him to only be interested, if there is quote something there where he can get the president, is agent to admit.
Smith says: Can you weigh in on the timing that the tweet Sen. Ron Johnson read off? The text is from May 19, 2017, two days, congressman, after Robert Mueller was appointed special counsel.
It’s not good and it is also in that same time period where we’re missing five months worth of texts. So God only knows what else was said. That’s a really important time period. Sessions has recused himself, Bob Mueller is coming on board. I happen to like him. I respect him. I think he is going to do a good job. But if he is picking guys like Peter Strzok and Lisa Page to be on his team and they are only interested in being on a team if they can get the president, they have no interest in clearing him, then he had some hiring failures of epic proportion.
This is yet another example of very questionable activities on the part of people we’re supposed to trust to tell us all the truth without any personal agenda involved. This seems to, on the contrary, provide a smoking gun that shows personal agenda items are at the very top of the list for these Agents.
Given this kind of reality, why is it that we’re expected to trust in the outcome without question? There is a big STINK across all this and the news is only beginning to leak out.
I suspect we’re going to hear a lot more and I suspect it is going to mean trouble for some in the upper echelons. This is out on the streets now; that makes it virtually impossible to cover up.
