The Inspector General’s Report
The much anticipated report of Inspector General Michael Horowitz has finally been released. You can view the 568 page report, in PDF format here.
FBI Director Wray, in a press conference on Thursday afternoon, defended the FBI, saying the report “did not find any evidence of political bias or improper considerations actually impacting the investigation under review.”
The key phrase here is “actually impacting the investigation”, which is what the report concludes, but that ignores some of the evidence presented in the reprt, such as the following email from Peter Strzok to Lisa Page, who were having an affair.
Washington Post reported:
Perhaps the most damaging new revelation in the report, according to multiple people familiar with it, is a previously unreported text message in which Peter Strzok, a key investigator on both the Clinton email case and the investigation of Russia and the Trump campaign, assured an FBI lawyer in August 2016 that “we’ll stop” Trump from making it to the White House.
“[Trump’s] not ever going to become president, right? Right?!” the lawyer, Lisa Page, wrote to Strzok.
“No. No he won’t. We’ll stop it,” Strzok responded.
This email was new evidence of political bias of one of the chief investigators for the FBI, Strzok, (who was one of the agents who interviewed Hillary Clinton about her use of the private email server), who was later removed from the investigation for…… political bias. Still, unsurprisingly, the IG’s report found no evidence of political bias “actually impacting the investigation”. Apparently nothing short of a confession of guilt by those involved was enough to satisfy the Inspector General.
Those of us living in the real world (outside Washington, DC), can see obvious political bias, and how it affects investigations. The FBI investigation of the Clinton Email Server was a whitewash, designed to release Clinton of any wrongdoing. We can see it, but biased political operatives, whose job it was to protect Hillary at all costs, and to destroy Trump, are given a free pass. The FBI and the Department of Justice have within their midst, those who will cover up criminality by those in high places, and are destroying the integrity of both institutions.
Strzok, Page and a few other mid-level people are those designed to take the fall. No doubt cushy jobs or book deals have been promised them in exchange for taking the rap, but that will not be enough to satisfy We the People. Laws were broken, not just at mid-level positions, but by those in high positions. Hillary, Comey, Huma Abedin, Loretta Lynch, Andrew McCabe and others have committed crimes. Will they be tried for them? I doubt it. The law does not apply to those in high places, or to those with high enough connections. It is a disgrace that this is so, but that is how Washington works. We the People are told they made “bad judgements”, but they committed no crimes. To that I cry BS!
