More on Obama's Weaponized FBI!
Details are now coming out about text messages which reveal the FBI actually considered using a personal connection between an FBI employee and a member of Vice President Mike Pence’s staff in order to advance the controversial probe into the now discredited allegations of collusion between the nation of Russia and Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign.
"The text messages in question were exchanges between disgraced FBI agent Peter Strzok and FBI attorney Lisa Page, the infamous texting duo who were previously reportedly romantically involved.
The detail was buried in a three-sentence footnote, footnote 480, on page 344 of the Justice Department’s previously released 476-page Inspector General report on the FBI’s Russia collusion investigation, known as Crossfire Hurricane.
A section of the report documents how James Comey’s FBI provided
unclassified “counterintelligence awareness” briefings to the transition teams for the Trump and Clinton campaigns, including a briefing to Pence on September 9, 2016.
A footnote reveals the existence of the text messages between Page and Strzok suggesting the FBI’s Crossfire Hurricane team probing Trump considered using a Pence employee for the purposes of its questionable Russia collusion probe.
The footnote reads:
We identified text messages between Strzok and Lisa Page from November 2016 suggesting the FBI may have considered using a connection between a then member of Pence’s staff and an FBI employee in some manner to further the Crossfire Hurricane investigation. We asked SSA1 about this. He said that he had been told of the connection but did not personally know the FBI employee, and that he did not change his approach to Pence’s FBI security briefing because of the connection. He also said he could not recall any discussions about using the connection to further the Crossfire Hurricane investigation, and we did not find any evidence that it was used."
To put this mess into perspective, the FBI, under Obama, spied on a private American citizen just because that citizen was running for public office and the Democrat Party, along with some on the GOP, such as the late RINO Senator John McCain didn't like him.
We all know not everyone in the FBI is dirty, but for the most part the more we learn about the corruption during the Obama years the more we see at least the leadership needs to go in order to clean up what trust the American people have left in the institution.
If they did this to Candidate Donald Trump, imagine what they can do to you or me.
