They leaked confidential materials, obstructed justice, and committed acts that would put everyday Americans behind bars for crimes of treason. Firing deep state operatives such as FBI agent Peter Strzok, and former deputy director Andrew McCabe was too good for them. They should have been prosecuted to the full extent of the law. Instead, the pair of disgraced Democrats are now suing the Department of Justice in hopes of getting a lump-sum payout in taxpayer money.
It’s common knowledge that Strzok was part of the “resist” and “obstruct” movement that tried to undermine the Trump Administration. But the more heinous intentions uncovered in his work-related text messages exchanged with his illicit lover and government lawyer, Lisa Paige, demonstrated treasonous intent. Strzok went as far as to say he and Paige would stop him from winning the White House while slow-walking the Hillary investigation. And if the country elected now-President Donald Trump, Strzok boldly texted he had an “insurance policy” to upend the voters’ will.
“He’s not ever going to become president, right? Right?,” Paige texts Strzok.
“No. No he won’t. We’ll stop it,” Strzok assures her.
Strzok wants the American people to believe he is now the victim of bullying by the president despite the corrupt intent unearthed in his work-related messages. His recent civil lawsuit points to the president’s strongly-worded tweets that call Strzok’s malfeasance “corrupt,” and him professionally “incompetent,” and “a fraud.”
If we are to turn a blind eye to Strzok’s blatant hatred for the president, we must also look away at the fact that he positioned himself on Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s team to conduct a witch hunt. In hindsight, we also know that Strzok was instrumental in misleading a FISA judge to get warrants to spy on Trump Campaign officials. Given his telling anti-Trump texts and attempts to influence the Russian meddling probe, it’s apparent he may have been trying to push the false Russian Collusion narrative he helped create. But the facts do not support Strzok’s claim that he is now a victim. The president’s insistence Strzok be fired is supported by Inspector General Michael Horowitz’ report into the matter.
“The IG Report totally destroys James Comey and all of his minions including the great lovers, Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, who started the disgraceful Witch Hunt against so many innocent people,” President Trump tweeted. “It will go down as a dark and dangerous period in American History!”
Internal government reports pointed to three critical reasons for Strzok’s firing. They include “unprofessional conduct off-duty,” “investigative deficiency” with regard to the Hillary case and not immediately alerting officials to Clinton’s government emails found on sex offender Anthony Weiner’s laptop. The charge was later downgraded to simple “dereliction of supervisory duty.” Lastly, he was reportedly cited for “security violations.” Apparently, he practiced the same fast-and-loose practices as Hillary and forwarded confidential FBI documents to his private Gmail account.
Despite this mountain of evidence against Strzok, his lawyers want Americans to believe his right to free speech was violated because his treasonous attitude and unprofessional conduct was disclosed to the public. Strzok thought no one would find out what he did at work or afterward.
“There is an expectation that those are not going to be made public,” Strzok reportedly said about the text messages. “I had no idea that this was going to happen and, darn, if I knew it, I never would have done it for sure.”
While the problem for Strzok seems to be getting caught, his skewed Washington elite view does not match up to people who work hard and play by the rules. Following his lead, disgraced former FBI deputy director McCabe has filed a civil lawsuit also claiming his rights were violated. McCabe was Strzok and Paige’s supervisor, his wife took Hillary money to run for office, and has been linked to acts against the Trump Campaign. McCabe was also accused of potential perjury after proof surfaced that he leaked confidential FBI materials to the Wall Street Journal regarding Hillary Clinton. The non-partisan inspector general referred McCabe to the DOJ.
But rather than prosecute the criminal element infecting the country’s top law enforcement agency, the pair were treated like a protected class. Now taxpayers are footing the bill to defend a phony lawsuit. If justice were equal in this country, they’d be sitting behind bars.
