BUT THERE IS NO POLITICAL BIAS … WHAT ELSE COULD THIS BE BUT POLITICAL BIAS?
Yesterday we learned from the IG report that a Special Counsel Mueller attorney was a part of the Democrat resistance against President Donald Trump. When this lawyer was asked he was rethinking his commitment to the Trump administration, the attorney replied, “Hell no. Viva le resistance.” But of course this is not political bias. This attorney was later quietly let go from the Mueller investigation.
Let’s get real folks. These people had such vile, vicious contempt for candidate and now President Trump that they would have done everything and anything to prevent him from becoming president and being president. How could anyone say with a straight face that their politics did not bias their investigation, they hate Trump.
An FBI attorney who worked on the special counsel’s Russia investigation until earlier this year sent anti-Trump text messages to a colleague, including one exclaiming: “Viva le Resistance.”
The attorney’s comments are revealed in a Justice Department inspector general’s report released on Thursday.
The lawyer is not identified, but he worked on the Hillary Clinton email investigation and was the FBI’s lead attorney on the investigation into Russian election interference. He was assigned to special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation soon after it began in May 2017 and left in late February of this year after some of his private messages were shared with the special counsel.
The inspector general’s report focuses on instant messages that the attorney exchanged with a colleague about the Clinton and Russia probes.
“I am numb,” the attorney wrote on Nov. 9, 2016, the day after President Trump’s election.
“I am so stressed about what I could have done differently,” the lawyer continued, apparently referring to the FBI’s handling of the Clinton email probe.
The attorney’s messages show that he was distressed at the FBI’s decision in October 2016 to re-open the investigation into Clinton’s emails. Democrats have claimed that decision hurt Clinton at the polls.
The FBI lawyer also suggested that he would work to resist the Trump administration.
“Is it making you rethink your commitment to the Trump administration?” one FBI lawyer wrote on Nov. 22, 2016.
“Hell no. Viva le resistance,” the future Mueller attorney responded.
