WHAT DOES SHE HAVE TO HIDE, BESIDES A LOT!!!
FBI attorney Lisa Page will not comply with a Congressional subpoena and appear before a closed door Judicial hearing today. It appears that the former FBI love-bird has not had enough time to prepare. REALLY, not enough time? Defy a Congressional subpoena? So just what does Page have to hide from Congress and We the People? Lisa Page and FBI agent Peter Strzok were caught making some rather outlandish and bias texts against Donald Trump. They were so free and willing to text each other when they thought no one was watching, so then why doesn’t she want to explain herself? Strzok, her former boyfriend, is slated to appear in a public hearing on Thursday. The corruption, bias and conspiracy that took place at the highest levels of the FBI and DOJ is breath-taking.
These lovebird should soon be jailbirds. Let alone the conspiracy to affect an election these two took part in, they should be jailed for the amount of time they sent each other tens of thousands of texts to each other of a personal nature while they were on the job and being paid with tax payer money.
Page’s lawyer said in a statement obtained by Politico that she will not comply with a congressional subpoena to testify before the House Judiciary and the Oversight and Government Reform Committees.
“Instead of responding to our requests to explain the scope of the interview and provide sufficient notice to allow her to prepare, the Committees chose to issue a subpoena,” Page’s attorney wrote.
“The Committees would be asking Lisa about materials she has not yet been shown,” the lawyer continued. “As a result, Lisa is not going to appear for an interview at this time.”
The response from House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte:
House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) blasted Page’s announcement in a statement Tuesday night, accusing the former FBI lawyer of having “something to hide.”
“She has known for months that the House Judiciary Committee has sought her testimony as part of our joint investigation with the Oversight Committee into decisions made by the Justice Department in 2016, and she has no excuse for her failure to appear,” Goodlatte wrote.
“We will use all tools at our disposal to obtain her testimony. Americans across the country are alarmed at the bias exhibited by top officials at the Justice Department and FBI, and it is imperative Congress conduct vigorous oversight to ensure that never happens again.”
Inspector General Report House Hearing: OGR Committee Chair Rep. Trey Gowdy Shreds Former FBI Director Comey in his Opening Statement … “We Can’t Survive with a Justice System We Don’t Trust” (VIDEO)
REP. TREY GOWDY SHREDS COMEY IN OPENING STATEMENT WITH HIS NUMEROUS ACTS OF BIAS …
During today’s House Oversight and Government Reform Hearing dealing with the IG’s Hillary Clinton email report, Committee Chair Rep. Trey Gowdy could not have said it any better as to why this hearing meant so much. This is bigger than Hillary Clinton and her partisan political games and illegal email server, destroying evidence and making secret documents easily accessible to hacking. This is about an out of control rouge FBI and DOJ where the very people at the top in decision making positions acting in such a bias manner, as to take down a candidate and potentially alter the outcome of a presidential election.
As Gowdy stated, It depends on you, the People, having confidence in the individuals who are empowered to enforce the law. Never lower your expectations of those entrusted with upholding the rule of law. Rep. Gowdy ended his opening statement by saying, “We can survive with politicians we don’t trust. We Can’t Survive with a Justice System We Don’t Trust.”
Rep. Matt Gaetz Demands Answers from IG Horowitz at Judiciary Hearing … Asks IG What the Resistance Movement Is (VIDEO)
WHY THE DIFFERENT TREATMENT … WHY DON’T WE KNOW WHO THE UNNAMED INDIVIDUALS ARE IN THE IG REPORT?
Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) nailed it at today’s House Judiciary Hearing with IG Michael Horowitz discussing the IG report on Hillary Clinton’s server/email scandal. First Rep. Gaetz asked if Horowitz was familiar with the “Resistance” movement and if he realized it meant resisting President Trump. Then he asked the name of Attorney #2 was? He presented Horowitz with the following three situations and then asked, don’t you find that a “bizarre coincidence?” Gaetz stated to Horowitz, “So you have Peter Strzok who goes from the Hillary Clinton email investigation to the FBI Trump-Russia investigation to the Mueller probe. You have Lisa Page who goes from the Hillary Clinton email investigation to the FBI Trump-Russia investigation to the Mueller probe. Then you have Attorney #2 who similary goes from the Hillary Clinton email investigation to the FBI Trump-Russia investigation to the Mueller probe.” Rep. Gaetz asked if took that as odd.
“It seems like a very bizarre coincidence that the way people tended to end up on the Mueller probe was some association with Hillary Clinton”
IG Horowitz stated that it was strange and you would not normally put some one who investigated one side of an investigation on another investigation of the opposite side. But not when it came to those bias FBI agents under James Comey who was put of both sides against FBI policy. The IG was asked who would make such staffing decisions like this. Horowitz staed it would be FBI leadership. It would have been James Comey who was fired, or Andrew McCabe who has been referred for criminal prosecution.
YUP, NO POLITICAL BIAS HERE.
Sen. Graham (R-SC) Presses IG Horowitz Over Text Message Between FBI Lawyer Lisa Page & FBI Agent Peter Strzok (VIDEO)
SENATOR GRAHAM PRESSES IG HOROWITZ …
Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) pressed Inspector General Michael Horowitz during yesterday’s Senate Judiciary Committee about August 2016 text message exchanges between FBI lawyer Lisa Page and FBI agent Peter Strzok asking if they showed bias against then-candidate Donald Trump. Graham pointed out the many cases of bias that Horowitz was concerned about, but yet some how all of thee very concerning, problematic and bias actions by the FBI never became, “enough already.”
Sen. Graham pointed out the obvious, Page, Strzok, and other unnamed FBI individuals hated Trump and stated that they would do things to stop him. But for some unknown reason, that was not considered actions of political bias. Graham points out that you could not find Hillary Clinton guilty of a crime and “STOP HIM, meaning Donald Trump. One wonders if Hillary Clinton had to win the election for this to be true? And if that happened, God help us all.
In the end, Sen. Graham says that he is not buying that there was not bias.
Sen. Graham went on FOX News with Shannon Bream to discuss is impressions of his questioning of Inspector General Michael Horowitz. Graham just is not buying that there was no political bias in the FBI’s handling of the Hillary Clinton server issue when there is nothing but examples of bias in the IG report. As Graham states, the #2 guy at the FBI, now fired Andrew McCabe, had a meeting with Lisa Pagea and FBI Agent Peter Strzok to develop an insurance policy if candidate Donald Trump was elected, then that is abuse at the highest level and needs to be dealt with. This time I find myself agreeing with Sen. Graham 100%. As Graham ended with, what the FBI and DOJ did should scare everyone and is dangerous to our Democracy.
“If the #2 guy in the FBI had a meeting with Page and Strzok in his office to find out how to create an ‘insurance policy’ against Trump being elected, that is abuse of the highest level of the government,” Graham continued. “That is Watergate stuff. That’s what the FBI used to do years ago and I want to get to the bottom of it.”
However, this was the senator’s biggest takeaway.
“I learned today is that what the FBI and Department of Justice did in the Clinton email investigation is dangerous to democracy,” Graham stated. “She got away with it and they were out to get Trump and it could be somebody new next time, so we need to fix this.”
OF COURSE THERE WAS POLITICAL BIAS …
From Byron York of The Washington Examiner cones the following, not only was there bias at the FBI, IG even stated the instances. Byron York wrote of the shameful attempts by the usual suspects on the Democrat LEFT to try and claim no bias by writing the following, “The comments had an otherworldly feel to them, because the IG report not only found, but documented, at great length, an FBI culture that was infested with political bias — specifically a political bias against President Trump.” Com on folks, of course there was bias. If you cannot extract bias from two FBI lovebird agents discussing how to prevent candidate Donald Trump from becoming president and making sure Hillary Clinton would, then there really is no help for you.
It didn’t take long for defenders of the FBI’s Trump-Russia investigation to claim that the Justice Department inspector general’s report found no bias in the bureau’s conduct of the Hillary Clinton email investigation, nor in the early days of the Trump-Russia probe.
“There was no bias in the FBI,” Rep. Jerrold Nadler of New York, ranking Democrat on the House Judiciary Committee, said on MSNBC.
“No bias at the FBI,” Democratic Rep. Eric Swalwell of California, a member of the House Intelligence Committee, said on Fox News.
“No evidence … [that the FBI] acted on the basis of political bias,” Rep. Adam Schiff of California, top Democrat on the Intelligence Committee, said in a statement.
The comments had an otherworldly feel to them, because the IG report not only found, but documented, at great length, an FBI culture that was infested with political bias — specifically a political bias against President Trump.
The inspector general, Michael Horowitz, discovered the bias when he examined the internal communications of FBI officials involved in the Clinton and Trump probes. (The new report specifically covers the email investigation, but also touches on the beginning of the Trump investigation, because they overlapped in time and because a significant number of key FBI officials were involved in both.) Horowitz discovered a group of officials, some of them in key positions in the Clinton-Trump investigations, who made no secret of their support of Clinton and opposition to Trump.
“Our task was made significantly more difficult because of text and instant messages exchanged on FBI devices and systems by five FBI employees involved in the [Clinton email] investigation,” Horowitz wrote in the executive summary of the report. “These messages reflected political opinions in support of former Secretary Clinton and against her then political opponent Donald Trump. Some of these text messages and instant messages mixed political commentary with discussions about the [Clinton email] investigation, and raised concerns that political bias may have impacted investigative decisions.”
