The FBI just discovered that it is missing all the texts between Peter Strzok and Lisa Page for the period from December 14, 2016 to May 17, 2017. At this point everyone is wondering what the FBI is hiding. No one is commenting on something very important. The December 14, 2016 date was when Obama appears to have ordered an investigation into Russian interference regarding the 2016 Presidential election. That Investigation was assigned to the FBI. The people involved were James Comey, Andrew McCabe, Kevin Rybicki, Peter Strzok, Lisa Page, Bruce Ohr, Bill Priestap and others. These people worked closely together on the top floor at the FBI.
James Comey was fired on May 9th, 2017. President Donald Trump met with Robert Mueller on May 16, 2017. Rod Rosenstein appointed Robert Mueller to be special counsel on May 17, 2017.
Almost immediately, someone at the FBI began collecting text messages between Peter Strzok and Lisa Page again. One of the most explosive texts that has been publicly reported was sent by Peter Strzok on May 19, 2017:
“You and I both know the odds are nothing. If I thought it was likely, I’d be there no question. I hesitate in part because of my gut sense and concern that there’s no big there there.”
Peter Strzok was part of the Russia investigation before Mueller was appointed. He clearly was hesitating to join Mueller’s investigation because he feared it wouldn’t lead to the coveted impeachment of Donald Trump.
Are you sure that Mueller was appointed to investigate Donald Trump? What if he was appointed to investigate the Russia investigation itself? What if he was appointed to investigate the investigators? What better way to expose a secret society of senior FBI agents on a mission to destroy the President of the United States than to put someone in charge who appears to be on their side? How else would anyone ever infiltrate this cartel? We are talking about the very senior people in the FBI.
Mueller has not said one negative thing about Donald Trump. All the news articles about the Mueller investigation are the result of leaks, almost certainly by one of these senior FBI agents. Most of those leaks have been wrong. The only thing we know is that Mueller has indicted a couple of people, but none of the indictments are even remotely connected to the Russian collusion theory.
We know that Jeff Sessions did meet with Mueller’s team last week. But, that team is now missing all the FBI agents who are suspected of being biased against Trump. Neither Sessions nor Mueller is disclosing what was discussed. CNN is assuming this is an investigation of alleged obstruction of Justice by Donald Trump because he fired James Comey. The problem with that theory is that no objective constitutional scholar buys it. There is zero chance that Trump can be removed from office because he fired James Comey. Mueller would be insane to think that he could bring any charges against Trump after his entire team of investigators has been compromised. This seems more likely to be in another long line of cases where CNN is willing to believe any theory that creates the slightest potential to remove Trump from office. They have been wrong, by a huge margin, every single time.
None of us know what Mueller is doing nor why he is doing it. We do know that the White House has willingly given Mueller every document he requested. He has also been granted access to any witness he requested. We don’t know if Mueller met with Sessions to interrogate him or to brief him on results? Jeff Sessions has been completely exonerated regarding any alleged Russia collusion, so his self-imposed recusal may have ended. Note that Sessions has become much more visible lately and he personally ordered the investigation into those missing e-mails.
Now there are leaks that Mueller wants to interview Trump. Every legal expert warns that Trump would be walking into a perjury trap. Yet neither Trump or his legal counsel are acting very concerned. Perhaps they view a meeting with Mueller exactly the opposite of what CNN expects. Perhaps Mueller hasn’t been investigating Trump, perhaps he has been investigating FOR Trump. Does he want to meet with Trump to interrogate him or to brief him on his findings?
I went back and read the actual announcement of Robert Mueller’s appointment by Rod Rosenstein:
“In my capacity as acting Attorney General, I determined that it is in the public interest for me to exercise my authority and appoint a Special Counsel to assume responsibility for this matter,” said Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein. “My decision is not a finding that crimes have been committed or that any prosecution is warranted. I have made no such determination. What I have determined is that based upon the unique circumstances, the public interest requires me to place this investigation under the authority of a person who exercises a degree of independence from the normal chain of command.”
This time I read this very differently. What if Rosenstein realized that he had the entire top floor of the FBI investigation let by agents who had direct connections with the Hillary Clinton campaign, who expressed bitter hatred of Donald Trump and who appeared to be on a mission to remove the President of the United States of America. What if he suspected a secret society dedicated to removing the President of the United States from office? What if he realized he could not trust anyone in senior management at the FBI?
He never said he appointed Mueller to investigate Trump, that was already happening. He appointed Mueller to exercise a degree of independence from the normal chain of command. All those involved thought this was aimed at by passing Jeff Sessions, but that couldn’t possibly be true because Sessions had recused himself. What if Rosenstein was bypassing the senior staff at the FBI? Are you still sure about Robert Mueller? All we really know is that when he took over, the top people on this investigation were all FBI agents hopelessly biased against Donald Trump. As of today, none of them is able to influence this investigation at all.
