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.
DNC CHAIR: Republicans Must 'Pay a Price’ for Kavanaugh Confirmation
Chair of the Democratic National Committee Tom Perez raised eyebrows across the country Sunday; saying Republican lawmakers must “pay a price” for confirming Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the US Supreme Court.
Perez issued the stark warning in a fundraising email sent to supporters immediately following Kavanaugh’s confirmation; saying “Here is one thing we’ve learned from the Brett Kavanaugh fight: We can never, ever, trust congressional Republicans to stand up to Donald Trump.”
“If you’re able, make a $3 donation right now to make Republicans pay a price for Brett Kavanaugh,” writes Perez. “So it really is this simple: If we don’t want people like Brett Kavanaugh to be appointed to lifetime positions in our federal judiciary, we need to elect Democratic majorities this November.”
Perez’ comments come days after leading GOP politicians -such as Senators Ted Cruz and Rand Paul- were confronted at DC-area restaurants and airports over their support for Brett Kavanaugh; requiring many to add an extra security detail while working at the US Capitol.
