With a 568 pages report to go through, there are likely to be bombshells dropping for a few days on the IG report.
Some have come out even before the report dropped.
But this latest one is amazing.
There have been reports now on the bias of Peter Strzok who opened the Trump/Russia case, texted we need to “stop Trump” from becoming president right about that same time and him speaking about an “insurance plan” if Trump won.
But now there’s even more.
Five people including Peter Strzok and Lisa Page were referred for disciplinary action for anti-Trump messages, among them a lead attorney in the Mueller probe.
From Daily Caller:
An FBI attorney who worked on the special counsel’s Russia investigation until earlier this year sent anti-Trump text messages to a colleague, including one exclaiming: “Viva le Resistance.”
The attorney’s comments are revealed in a Justice Department inspector general’s report released on Thursday.
The lawyer is not identified, but he worked on the Hillary Clinton email investigation and was the FBI’s lead attorney on the investigation into Russian election interference. He was assigned to special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation soon after it began in May 2017 and left in late February of this year after some of his private messages were shared with the special counsel.
“I am numb,” the attorney wrote to a colleague Nov. 9, 2016, the day after President Trump’s election. “I am so stressed about what I could have done differently,” the lawyer said, seeming to reference the Clinton case.
The FBI lawyer then implied he would work against the Trump administration.
“Is it making you rethink your commitment to the Trump administration?” one FBI lawyer wrote on Nov. 22, 2016.
“Hell no. Viva le resistance,” the future Mueller attorney responded.
When questioned by the Inspector General, the lawyer claimed that he hadn’t done anything to affect the investigation because of his political feelings. He conceded that his comments appeared to show bias against President Donald Trump.
So both the guy who opened and was in charge of the investigation was biased and wanting to stop Trump from becoming President. And the chief lawyer on the case and into the Mueller probe was also biased. And these are just the guys dumb enough to text about their feelings.
From Daily Caller:
The OIG report also flags messages exchanged between two agents referred to as “Agent 1” and “Agent 5.” Both worked on the Clinton investigation but not on the Trump-Russia probe.
Agent 1 was one of the agents who, along with Strzok, interviewed Hillary Clinton in July 2016.
“I’m done interviewing the President,” the agent wrote, referring jokingly to then-candidate Clinton.
In another exchange, the agent wrote that they were “Not sure if Trump or the [FBI’s] fifth floor is worse.”
Agent 5 responded “I’m so sick of both.”
The agents also suggested in text messages on Election Day that there would be riots if Trump defeated Clinton.
“You think HRC is gonna win right? You think we should get nails and some boards in case she doesnt,” Agent 1 wrote.
“She better win… otherwise i’m gonna be walking around with both of my guns,” Agent 5 responded.
The report said the FBI would handle the discipline in the 5 cases.
The FBI will handle these referrals pursuant to the FBI’s disciplinary investigation and adjudication processes, and will impose disciplinary measures as warranted,” reads a report released Thursday by the Justice Department’s Office of the Inspector General (OIG).
“The conduct of the five FBI employees … has brought discredit to themselves, sowed doubt about the FBI’s handling of the Midyear investigation, and impacted the reputation of the FBI,” reads the report
