Well it took long enough but today the arrogant FBI agent who collaborated to exonerate Hillary Clinton so she could run for president, conspired with others to destroy Trump’s bid for president, and then, after Trump won, worked overtime to destroy the Trump presidency has been fired. I hope he’s also feeling enough heat to lawyer up.
The IG report is likely the basis for Strzok’s firing:
The Department of Justice Inspector General report on the Hillary investigation was highly critical of Strzok, stating that his texts “potentially indicated or created the appearance that investigative decisions were impacted by bias or improper considerations,” and added that Strzok’s behavior “not only indicative of a biased state of mind but, even more seriously, implies a willingness to take official action to impact the presidential candidate’s electoral prospects.” The report found that Strzok’s decision to prioritize the Russia investigation over the Hillary investigation could have been biased: “Under these circumstances, we did not have confidence that Strzok’s decision to prioritize the Russia investigation over following up on the Midyear-related investigative lead discovered on the Weiner laptop was free from bias.” The report concluded that Strzok’s activities were “antithetical to the core values of the FBI and the Department of Justice.”
At this point we do not know what this means for the Mueller investigation and related matters. Key questions include: Was information gathered improperly? Were FISA warrants improperly ordered and obtained? Can anything be done regarding the sham investigation and exoneration in the Hillary email case? Is the entire Mueller investigation a sham, as President Trump has suggested?
Given the warrants to spy on Carter Page (Trump campaign) were largely based on the phony Steele dossier obtained through corrupt means and misrepresented to the FISA judge, I’d say the President has a point.
The time has come for the whole ugly mess to see the light of day. This firing is appropriate but it certainly doesn’t satisfy the need for full disclosure of the corruption and criminality of the sordid group that conspired to manipulate and control the outcome of the election of 2016…and perhaps continues to this day in the form of the Mueller team “investigation.”
