FBI's credibility problem: Peter Strzok

So this is big enough that even CNN covered it.



http://amp.dailycaller.com/2017/12/0...bi-supervisor/
Clinton Aides Went Unpunished After Making False Statements To Anti-Trump FBI Supervisor

This guy was the one to give Clinton the informal, unsworn interview. He let Huma and Mills go after they gave false statements to the FBI. He was the one who re-wrote Comey's statement to avoid using "gross negligence" and he was leading the Russia probe at some point.

Oh yea, he is also the one who ambushed and interviewed Flynn without an attorney present.

zero credibility. Shut it down.

I know this looks bad but just be patient and wait for our resident Dhumbass to explain to us why none of this is problematic.

Even WaPo has published an op-ed excoriating the FBI and Obama-era Justice Dept.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/opini...=.6961d7088aa9

Looks like the wheels are coming off the "Obama was a great president" train. How long before indictments come down the pike?

And, just like that, the Mueller investigation goes from earthshaking to merely amusing. Nice job, guys.

As long as biased dude isn't actively involved in the investigation anymore I'm not sure how this is true?

In any case, I thought CNN and wapo were fake news.

It really proves what I always said, no matter what party they're all on the same team... And you aren't

See my musings/comment in the Trump thread. I think they're all tainted, by definition.

Here, this will explain exactly why none of this is problematic:

A Top FBI Official Sent Anti-Trump Texts. Does That Discredit the Russia Probe?
Hardly.


Excerpt:
Quote:
If all Strzok did, however, was privately express his personal political views, and he otherwise properly conducted himself in the context of his official duties, has he done anything wrong? The short answer is no. Not only are civil servants permitted to retain their personal political views while employed by the U.S. government, but they are even permitted by law to express those personal political views. The Hatch Act, passed in 1939, governs concerns about politics permeating the civil servant workplace. The statute only prohibits civil servants from engaging in political activity, which is directed at the promotion of or advocacy against a political party, group or candidate. Strzok allegedly sent text messages to a colleague mocking President Trump when he was still a candidate, something comparable to what countless of millions of Americans—including, no doubt, many GOP members of Congress—did with respect to both major candidates throughout the 2016 election. Unless Strzok was actually urging his colleague, “we must defeat Trump, vote for Hillary” or something along those lines, his commentary – while unwise – was still permitted under federal law. The fact that he was making those remarks at all is why Mueller removed him from the Russian collusion investigation out of an abundance of caution. That should strengthen our confidence in his investigation, not undermine it.

So if Trump appoints a judge to the SCOTUS who once tweeted that abortion is baby killing, you would be o.k. with that? I know it is not easy to be your own self-parody, but thanks for the laugh.

More Mueller team bias, swamp donkeys

http://dailycaller.com/2017/12/05/mu...defying-trump/
Mueller's 'Lieutenant' Applauded Official For Defying Trump
Quote:
Andrew Weissman, an attorney working for special counsel Robert Mueller, praised former acting Attorney General Sally Yates for refusing to enforce President Trump's travel ban, emails released Tuesday reveal.

"I am so proud. And in awe. Thank you so much. All my deepest respects," Weissman wrote to Yates on Jan. 30. That same day, Yates told the Justice Department not to defend an executive order banning immigration from seven nations, an act which eventually led to her dismissal by President Trump.

The emails were obtained by conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch through a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit.

"This is an astonishing and disturbing find. Andrew Weissman, a key prosecutor on Robert Mueller's team, praised Obama DOJ holdover Sally Yates after she lawlessly thwarted President Trump,' Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said in a statement. "How much more evidence do we need that the Mueller operation has been irredeemably compromised by anti-Trump partisans? Shut it down."
Tom Fitton is doing better work than Jeff Sessions.

Did Mueller do even rudimentary vetting prior to putting this team together? I'm starting to think the answer is "nope." Even if he didn't care what these people's political biases were (or actually approved of them) it seems pretty tone deaf to choose people who have done these things to be on the team that ostensibly seeks the truth related to Trump's actions.

If I had to guess, he actively sought out these people due to their bias.

You did read that article right?

Apparently not.

Well let me help you then. Privately sharing a political opinion about a candidate is neither a crime nor a disqualifying action. Did he properly conducted himself in the context of his official duties? Are you suggesting Mueller should only hire Trump supporters?

Even given that, Mueller immediately let him go to avoid even the appearance of bias and impropriety, he's well aware that Trump partisans will seize upon anything to thwart and undermine his investigation.
