Strzok Wrote That Trump Could Not Be Permitted to Become President, and That an "Insurance Policy" Was Necessary

Jim Jordan connected up two of Strzok's most conspiracy-suggesting outbursts to the timing of the the FBI's -- probably actually Strzok's -- application for a FISA warrant to "spy on Americans."

That video is below, but here are the two text chains he focuses on.



So there you have Strzok saying he can "protect the country at many levels" from the "menace" of Trump in his position as an FBI agent.

Then he talks about a conversation that happened in Andrew McCabe's office-- remember, McCabe's wife ran for office in Virginia as a Democrat and was partly bankrolled by Friend of Hillary Terry MacAuliffe -- in which McCabe, Lisa Page, and Andrew Strzok apparently spent work-time discussing the menace of a Trump presidency.

Although Lisa Page threw out a "path" by which she claimed Trump could not win te race -- and we don't know what this "path" was about -- Strzok was still too worried about the prospect of it, and announced "I'm afraid we can't take that risk" and cryptically refers to an "insurance policy" against that possibility:



The video below begins mid-quotation, but Jordan is quoting from the texts above. He knits these together to show that Strzok was a man who considered himself the last insurance policy against a Trump presidency, which just might be why he then packaged up the Steele dossier and presented it to a FISA court to get warrants to begin spying on Trump associates.

Update: Chuck Ross sketches a partial timeline, too:
