Grassley Examines Reports of Biased FBI Agent in Russia Probe

Mueller Removed Top FBI Agent Over Possible Anti-Trump Texts

Here's where the story gets downright bizarre. This is a significant development as it now questions the integrity and impartiality of both the Clinton and Russian investigations, especially the former. He's again asking for an interview with Strzok as well as documents, including communications involving Strzok, relating to the bureau's investigation last year into the use of a private email server by former Secretary of State Clinton. ABC News reported back in August that Strzok had been demoted from Mueller's team to the FBI's human resources division.

As of Wednesday, Nunes had not yet announced whether he planned to bring the contempt resolution to a vote in his committee. White House officials had spent the 'earlier part of the week with the FBI overseeing training and security measures associated with their new roles so, it was no surprise to Flynn that McCabe had called, ' the source said.

Remember President Obama's second term, when the IRS Tea Party-targeting scandal erupted? He also noted that the FBI granted two key witnesses immunity and allowed them to have their laptops destroyed after being examined. If an NBA official was discovered to have purposefully thrown even one game, every game in which he had carried a whistle would be under the microscope.

The latter dig was meant for Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe, whose wife took campaign donations from a Clinton ally, the outgoing Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe.

'Having done many investigations myself, there's always conflicting recollections of facts - some of which are central, some of which are peripheral, ' Comey said then. I remember. I represented dozens of these organizations. Page was also a member of Mueller's team and likely shared Strzok's view of Trump. Yeah, I'm sure there are some. But we need one appointed right now.

Weissmann slipped away from the Enron Task Force just as the judge in the Enron Broadband prosecution began attacking the behavior of Weissmann's team. Similarly, the advice that President Trump has been receiving that the Department of Justice must somehow be independent is contrary to our Constitution. It's hard to govern (or educate, or report on) an entire country when you aren't sufficiently exposed to contrary perspectives and experiences.

Nunes may be angry that the Department of Justice didn't clear Strzok until a few days ago to testify before his committee, but that's not a basis for contempt of Congress, Tiefer said. Against the backdrop of other recent controversies, it would be disastrous. And it's still too soon to say conclusively that it worked.

Fox News reports that the bureau is reviewing "several months" worth of messages that the agent, Peter Strzok, exchanged with Lisa Page, an FBI attorney with whom he was having an affair.

"Meanwhile, a witch hunt continues against the president, with tremendous bias, with no purpose, and with no end in sight", Gaetz said. As we've learned, incompetence, bias, and sleaziness know no ideological bounds.

Flynn pleaded guilty on Friday to making false statements to the FBI.

Additional concerns of the lawmakers are outlined in a letter, dated Nov. 28, to Wray signed by Gaetz, along with Biggs and Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-Texas. Unfortunately, that's no longer true (which is a damning indictment of three successive Israeli governments).
