BIAS ALERT: FBI Agents ‘PRESSURED’ to END Hillary Probe After Trump Nomination

Originally published at:

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.

Uh oh.

You need to actually read it before responding.


Is this the CEC narrative of the day?

Because it’s a stretch.

That’s old news.

But it is interesting. What is odd is that special investigation/spying etc started right about the time Trump locked up the nomination in May 2016.

As the saying goes, timing is everything. Recent revelations keep pushing back the beginning of the CIA and FBI investigation into “Russian hacking” or “meddling” in the 2016 election further and further in time.

This is significant, since the farther back in time the actual origin of the spying on Trump, the less likely it is that it had anything to do with Russian involvement in the 2016 elections, but everything to do with stopping the surprising surge of Trump during the GOP primaries and beyond.

Increasingly, a political motive seems not only likely, but almost certain.

This is over 4 months old. Stupid effing bot.

What’s odd about it? A lot of things were happening around that same time. Papadopoulos was spilling the beans to ambassadors. Page was traveling to Moscow. The Russians dumped tens of thousands of emails from the DNC.

I’ve heard that the president has absolute authority over DOJ investigations so I’m not sure why White House pressure would be a big deal here.
