Well, well, well… so more smoking gun evidence is coming to light that this whole Mueller Russian Collusion investigation has just been a big sham all along, huh? The latest shoe to drop is the revelation that one of the FBI agents on Flynn’s team (you know, the impartial agents with no political affiliation who only want to uncover the truth), well one of them just got canned for tweeting Anti-Trump and pro-Hillary messages to his mistress.
Oh, and by one of them, we mean the agent who was in charge of the Hillary email probe and recommended clearing her of all wrong doing before being tapped to supervise the Trump – Russia investigation! Seriously, you can’t make this up!
Here’s the deal, though… his firing happened several months ago and Congress has been asking the Department of Justice and FBI for an explanation of why they withheld this information from Congress. To make matters worse, this is information that Congress specifically asked for! Now, it seems that Devin Nunes has had enough, and he’s through playing around.
U.S. House Republicans are drafting a contempt of Congress resolution against Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and FBI Director Christopher Wray, claiming stonewalling in producing material related to the Russia-Trump probes and other matters.
Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes and other committee Republicans, after considering such action for several weeks, decided to move after media including the New York Times reported Saturday on why a top FBI official assigned to Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s probe of Russia-Trump election collusion had been removed from the investigation.
Republicans, including the president, pointed to the reports as evidence that the entire probe into Russian meddling has been politically motivated.
“Now it all starts to make sense,” Trump said on Twitter Sunday.
In his statement Saturday, Nunes pointed to the reports that the official, Peter Strzok, was removed after allegedly having exchanged anti-Trump and pro-Hillary Clinton text messages with his mistress, who was an FBI lawyer working for Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe.
In another tweet Trump referred to the agent as “tainted (no, very dishonest?).” Trump added that the FBI’s reputation “is in Tatters – worst in History!”
Also from Bloomberg:
“In light of today’s press reports, we now know why Strzok was dismissed, why the FBI and DOJ refused to provide us this explanation, and at least one reason why they previously refused to make Deputy Director McCabe available to the Committee for an interview,” Nunes said.
“By hiding from Congress, and from the American people, documented political bias by a key FBI head investigator for both the Russia collusion probe and the Clinton email investigation, the FBI and DOJ engaged in a willful attempt to thwart Congress’ constitutional oversight responsibility,” he said.
Nunes, in the statement, said the committee will move on a resolution by the end of the month unless it demands are “fully met” by the close of business Dec. 4.
This whole investigation has been a farce from the very beginning and a giant waste of taxpayer dollars. It’s time to fire Mueller and end this dog and pony show now!
