Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) Questions I.G. Horowitz During House Judiciary Committee Hearing … Strzok Hated Trump Yet He Was Investigating Him? (VIDEO)
Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) eviscerated Peter Strzok …
Rep. Jim Jordan pretty much summed up the entire line of questioning and bias when it came to FBI Peter Strzok when Jordan stated, “the guy who hates the President, the guy who ran the Clinton investigation, the guy who ran the Russian investigation then gets assigned to the Special Counsel team?” Imagine that. The Special Counsel was named on May 17, 2017. On May 18, 2017, one day later Peter Strzok said on page 405 that this could be an investigation that could lead to impeachment.
Jordan asks Horowitz, “dont you think that sounds and looks like to regular American people than just casting a cloud on the overall investigations? Then Jordan stated, what bothers me most is Peter Strzok’s attitude (4:20). Its what bothers Americans about this whole ordeal. Peter Strzok texts on Aug 26, 2016, “I just went to a Southern Virginia Walmart, I can smell the Trump supporters.” This is the arrogance, condescension and elitism of the FBI and why Americans are so mad. There are two sets of standards.
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.”
AND YOU WONDER WHY COMEY HAS GONE QUIET …
Inspector General Horowitz confirmed Monday during a Congressional hearing that former FBI Director James Comey is under investigation for his handling of classified information. James Comey is in a world of trouble. Former FBI Director Comey penned 7 memos stemming from 9 conversations with President Trump of which at least 4 of 7 of the memos contained classified information. A fired Comey then gave contents of his memos to his friend Daniel Richman to leak to the New York Times. The purpose of this was to prompt a Special Counsel, which is what occurred. It would appear those leaked memos are now being investigated by the IG.
Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz confirmed publicly Monday that his office is investigating James Comey for his handling of classified information as part of memos he shared documenting discussions with President Trump.
The inspector general’s comments confirmed reports dating back to April that the ex-FBI director was facing scrutiny, amid revelations that at least two of the memos he shared with his friend, Columbia University Professor Daniel Richman, contained information now deemed classified.
The confirmation came during Monday’s Senate Judiciary Committee hearing, where Horowitz and FBI Director Christopher Wray testified on the findings in the IG’s report on the handling of the Hillary Clinton email probe.
