New Strzok, Page Texts Highlight ‘Culture of Media Leaking’ at the FBI and DOJ

New Strzok, Page Texts Highlight ‘Culture of Media Leaking’ at the FBI and DOJ

THIS is collusion.

Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC) announced on Monday that his office received new text messages between former FBI agent Peter Strozk and his mistress Lisa Page that shows “an apparent systemic culture of media leaking by high-ranking officials at FBI and DOJ related to ongoing investigations.”

New texts released by Meadows on Tuesday cemented his theory.

In other words, the two agencies teamed up to release harmful information to the media about President Donald Trump last year right before Special Counsel Robert Mueller began his Russia-Trump probe.

This is what collusion looks like. Someone point Mueller to this story.

Meadows sent one letter to Rosenstein on Monday, in which he dictated that “senior officials at FBI/DOJ selectively leaked info to the media about ongoing investigations to the Trump admin.”

Meadows’ office reviewed one text from Strzok to Page on April 10, 2017:

Strzok’s lawyer claims that the “media leak strategy” in that text is about an initiative in the DOJ to stop media leaks. He took a swipe at Trump and his supporters, stating that they “are once again peddling unfounded conspiracy theories to mislead the American people.”

Explain this then because texts from Strzok to Page a few days letter let her know that TWO articles would come out about her “namesake” Carter Page, a man connected to Trump’s campaign and the FBI put surveillance on him after the agency received a FISA warrant:

That story from the Washington Post stated that the information came from officials “on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss details of a counterintelligence probe.”

Strzok lost his job at the FBI in August due to the anti-Trump texts he sent to Page.

In January, Senate Homeland Security Committee Chairman Ron Johnson (R-WI) went on a radio show and read some of the text messages between Strzok and Page, including one where Strzok wrote, “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 there’s no big there there.”

At the time, Strzok and Page discussed joining the Mueller investigation. Page pushed Strzok to not join, but both eventually jumped into the ship. However, Mueller let go of Strzok due to the texts and affair with Page, who left the investigation last summer to rejoin the FBI.

What? There’s gambling going on in Rick’s Cafe?

    Everyday there are new disclosures, which is just piling on. We all know that the FBI and DOJ were and are rotten. Yet there is no action, which is equally disgusting.

      Mary Said It!

      “THIS is collusion.”

      As the president said, it would make no difference if Eric Holder, who never saw corruption fit to investigate, was still in charge of DOJ as the outcome would be the same.

“”THIS is collusion.”” I’m no lawyer, but to me, this doesn’t look like collusion, it looks like a seditious conspiracy.

Ah, so Page’s mission, which she chose to accept, was to ask DoJ about its anti-leak strategy, to learn how to circumvent that strategy? Because that version sounds so much better.

Why are these creeps still walking the streets as free people?
The legal guild continues to fail us.

    Everyone who should be prosecuted is not prosecuted. It’s ridiculous.

    I do not trust the federal government for anything. I don’t know if
    it’s beyond repair but it’s close, and if the real wrong-doers are never charged, I don’t see our nation ever recovering.

    If we only had an Attorney General…

    Because Sessions is a fucking coward and refuses to do anything about it. This is the same guy that accepted a Comey of an IG report that listed hundreds of pages of misconduct and ended with the tag line that they did nothing wrong.

    Regardless of anything else that happens, at this point Sessions is 100% getting publicly fired Nov 10th.

If the past is any guide, these are teasers. More to come.

Mueller will not stop his biased investigation until someone MAKES him stop. Sessionszzz must be fired for this farce to end.

The real outrage here is that the FBI/DOJ didn’t invent this playbook just for Trump…. they’ve used it before and it’s been effective. Every ounce of this Shakespearean Tragedy has shown us how far the Feds are willing to go to nail their target, even if they have to manufacture the evidence.

And does anyone believe that Trump was the only target? The further back the dates get pushed, I wonder if anyone has requested to look for references to the other 13 candidates in the field or even Romney?

Seems like if I were an attorney who has had a case investigated by the FBI and prosecuted by the DOJ in the last 20 years, I’d go back and look through your files for things that seem way too convenient.

    Most of the FBI should be in an all-out full press to get the criminals and the corruptocrats OUT of the agency. They can do that and still deal with the run-of-the-mill criminals.

New texts? Fairly damning possibly. Where have these texts just suddenly surfaced from? U.S. Intelligence is becoming an oxymoron 😉

Correct, this is collusion. It is also highly illegal.

Most of Obama’s FBI and DOJ leadership (and Brennan/Clapper) belongs in jail.

The “media leak strategy” comment was about an initiative in the DOJ to stop media leaks?

That should be easy enough to prove. Subpoena the documents showing that such an effort was underway and what role Strzok and Page had in it; the order, assignments, notes, emails and other messages, etc. There should be several tens (if not hundreds) of thousands of such documents if Strzok’s lawyer is correct.

    This is a bald-faced lie, but it’s authorized. The lawyer of the defendant can make up any cockamamie story he likes. You are correct that it’s easy to disprove, but then someone has to look up the relevant documents to do that and it won’t be anyone at the FBI.

      DaveGinOly in reply to Matt_SE. | September 12, 2018 at 1:57 am

      The point is Strzok’s lawyer is bluffing. His bluff should be called. And what would it say about the FBI if there was no “media (anti-)leak strategy” at all?

    Correct. Any secret conspiracy to leak FBI classified material to the press is by nature something where the conspirators would try to *minimize* the number of documents involved.

    Any classified project to *find* leakers in the FBI would have so many CYA documents by everybody involved that you could find them everywhere. After all, success has a thousand fathers, failure has none. If a leak is found and prosecuted under this plan, the people all involved would want to take credit.

Let’s go back in time to a wonderfully warm and fuzzy period in American cultural when the FBI, as described by Democrats as “beyond reproach”, and any criticism was denounced as “Republican Conspiracy fantasy.”

Ahhhh, good times. Good times.

Every time more of this comes out about FBI/DOJ, I’m reminded of the the scene from Con Air when a prisoner (undercover) identifies himself as DEA, and asks the prisoners on-board if they know what that means, and Dave Chapelle’s character replies “Yeah, that menas you’re the dirtiest ni**er on this plane.”
