When Peter Stzrok Proposed the Crossfire Hurricane Investigation To Attack Trump, His Proposal Was Approved By an Interesting Superior: Peter Strzok Himself.

This sounds a lot like a higher-up saying, "I don't want my name attached to it. Sign the approval yourself."

Catherine Herridge obtained an Electronic Communication (EC) via Judicial Watch which announced the launch of the Crossfire Hurricane investigation. The memo was drafted by Trump-hating FBI agent Peter Strzok and also states it was approved by Strzok. Herridge suggests that may be a problem.

Well, yeah. The whole point of requiring approval is to get a second opinion saying "Yes" to a probe, from a higher-up.

Instead, Peter Strzok got a second opinion from himself. And that opinion was: "I really hate Trump and really want to impress my Lanky Beaver sidepiece."

"Former senior FBI agent tells @CBSNews that same person drafting + signing off on an 'EC' is unusual + may violate the 'DIOG' or Domestic Investigations Operations Guide which is the roadmap/rule book for FBI agents. Based on "DIOG, Crossfire Hurricane appears to fall under 'Sensitive Investigative Matter' because it involved a political candidate/organization – DIOG states these cases should be brought to attention 'FBI HQ + other DOJ officials'

Remember when I said this sounds like a higher-up wanting to keep his name off of it?

I give you the FBI. Specifically, disgraced Counterintelligence Assistant Director Bill Priestap:

It's worth noting that there’s no need to intuit that this was a "Sensitive Investigative Matter" because the front page of the EC clearly labels it as such. But NY Times reporter Charlie Savage argued that while it’s true a "Sensitive Investigative Matter" has to be approved by higher ups, in this case it was. He highlighted this bit of the IG report which says that Counterintelligence Division Assistant Director Bill Priestap approved the investigation.
