New Page-Strzok Texts Reveal Couple Smiling Over James Comey's Possible Intervention in Election, on Hillary's Side

From that Wacko Bird Mark Meadows that the #SmartSet thought was too extreme to serve as Speaker of the House:

[tweet reformatted to normal text]

New July 2016 texts between Peter Strzok and Lisa Page show a troubling reference to former FBI Director James Comey potentially intervening in the 2016 election



[tweets reformatted to normal text]

To be clear: these are two high level FBI agents who appear to be discussing/laughing about the FBI Director potentially getting involved in the 2016 election--just days after the "Russia investigation" into the Trump campaign had begun.

The timeline here is concerning.

...

At what point does all this troubling info become enough? We can appoint a special counsel for a nonsense collusion case (with zero evidence), but we can't do the same for a DOJ that, by now, appears clear-as-day politicized?

It's past time. We need a second special counsel.

As far as I know, no New York Times reporter has rushed to print the news of how proud Mark Meadows' high school classmates are of him.

The D.C. bubble's credulous embrace of McCabe is embarrassing

By Gary Abernathy March 20

HILLSBORO, Ohio

The predictable reaction from some media quarters directed at President Trump over the firing of former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe, including outlandish comparisons to the Saturday Night Massacre of Watergate days, is reflective of the Big Media echo chamber and the isolation inside the D.C. bubble. Outside Washington, and especially in Trump country, the whole FBI mess is viewed a little differently.

For the longest time, James B. Comey, as director of the FBI, portrayed himself as the world's tallest Boy Scout, and many in the media viewed him that way. Even when his decisions and actions were under scrutiny during the 2016 presidential campaign, Comey exuded a veneer of professionalism and decorum.

Comey destroyed that image, first through his admission that he orchestrated a leak to the New York Times in hopes that it would lead to the appointment of a special counsel -- a signal to the FBI rank and file he once led that if you can't achieve a result you want through aboveboard means, consider subterfuge. Such actions are expected of politicians. Americans expect the FBI to be better, especially at the top.

...

Comey has abandoned his carefully cultivated public demeanor as a straight-arrow FBI official in exchange for a self-demotion to the ranks of just another partisan political operative. The real James Comey has emerged.

McCabe's alleged misdeeds and self-pitying response to his firing lend credence to notions that a D.C. swamp indeed exists, in immediate need of draining. Despite what so many in the media implied over the weekend, McCabe wasn't fired by the president. He was fired by the attorney general based on a recommendation from the FBI's own Office of Professional Responsibility, following an investigation by Justice Department Inspector General Michael E. Horowitz -- an appointee of President Barack Obama.

This is the same Andrew McCabe apparently referenced in a text message from FBI agent Peter Strzok to FBI lawyer Lisa Page during the 2016 campaign, on the topic of a meeting they attended in "Andy's office" about their fears of a Trump victory.

"I want to believe the path you threw out for consideration in Andy's office -- that there’s no way he gets elected — but I’m afraid we can’t take that risk,” Strzok wrote to Page, adding, "It's like an insurance policy in the unlikely event you die before you’re 40."

Pause and think about this conversation...This reads to me like a choice. Trump probably won’t get elected, but “I’m afraid we can’t take that risk.”

No matter how fervent Trump-haters try to play down those words, this extraordinary statement of bias was the takeaway from a meeting that took place at the highest ranks of the FBI.
