Senator Rand Paul confirmed Wednesday that anti-Trump DOJ officials Peter Strzok and Lisa Page still possess their top secret security clearances; adding the two still have “access to sensitive private information.”
Paul sent a scathing letter to FBI Director Christopher Wray weeks ago, demanding answers over whether the Trump-hating employees “still have security clearances” and “have the ability to search FISA data or other classified databases.”
The libertarian lawmaker received his response this week, with officials telling Paul “all FBI employees must maintain a Top Secret security clearance.”
“BREAKING: FBI admits that @realDonaldTrump haters still have Top Secret security clearances which allows them to access sensitive private information!” tweeted Sen. Paul.

Page and Strzok made national headlines months ago when their anti-Trump text messages shed new light on widespread bias and abuse throughout the FBI and the Department of Justice.

NUNES GOES NUCLEAR: Devin Nunes Threatens to 'IMPEACH' Rosenstein, Wray
Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee Devin Nunes threatened FBI Director Christopher Wray and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein with “impeachment” Tuesday night over their continued stonewalling of his Russia investigation.
“The Chairman of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (HPSCI) is threatening to ‘hold in contempt and impeach’ FBI director Christopher Wray and Department of Justice Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein if they do not turn over a less than two-page document requested by the committee months ago, which outlined the bureau’s initiation of the case to investigate President Trump’s 2016 campaign and alleged Russia collusion,” writes Sara Carter.
“Nunes has battled the DOJ and the Bureau for information for more than a year and threatened contempt in January when Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein refused to hand over documentation requested by the committee,” she adds.

BIAS ALERT: FBI Agents ‘PRESSURED’ to END Hillary Probe After Trump Nomination
Officials at the Department of Justice forked over hundreds of pages of previously unseen text messages to Congressional investigators over the weekend; revealing new details on how FBI agents were “pressured” to exonerate Hillary Clinton’s private email scandal after Donald Trump secured the GOP nomination in 2016.
New text messages between FBI agent Peter Strzok and bureau lawyer Lisa Page shed new light on the level of anti-Trump bias and corruption throughout the agency in the run-up to the US presidential election; suggesting the bureau was hoping to conclude Clinton’s probe within minutes of Donald Trump’s victory over GOP opponent Senator Ted Cruz.
“Holy s*** Cruz just dropped out of the race. It’s going to be a Clinton Trump race. Unbelievable,” wrote Page in May of 2016.
“I saw Trump won, figured it would be a bit,” responded Strzok. “Now the pressure really starts to finish MYE.”
The reference to “MYE” refers to ‘Mid-Year Exam,’ the FBI code name for the ongoing investigation of Hillary Clinton’s mishandling of classified information and use of a private email server.
According to CBS News, the conversation was included in Sen. Ron Johnson’s scathing letter to FBI Director Christopher Wray, where the Homeland Security Chairman demanded answers over anti-Trump bias at the agency ahead of the 2016 election.
