Meet The Man Who Took Down Trump-Hating FBI Agent Peter Strzok
The discovery of text messages sent by Trump-hating FBI Peter Strzok has left a permanent stain on Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s already tainted Russia investigation. While its contents have become the talk of D.C., little is known as to how the text messages came to light.
In a letter sent on Wednesday to Senators Chuck Grassley (R-IA) and Ron Johnson (R-WI), Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz revealed new details about the discovery of the anti-Trump texts.
Daily Caller reports:
The Justice Department’s office of the inspector general revealed new details Wednesday about how it discovered the anti-Trump text messages that led to FBI agent Peter Strzok’s removal from Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation.
Michael Horowitz, the Justice Department watchdog, said that his office obtained the text messages from the FBI on July 20. A week later, he met with Mueller and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein to inform them of the politically-charged texts. […]
Horowitz, writing to Iowa Sen. Chuck Grassley and Wisconsin Sen. Ron Johnson, said that his office obtained the Strzok texts after asking the FBI to produce communications from bureau-issued phones for a select group of employees who worked on the Clinton email probe. […]
“After finding a number of politically-oriented text messages between Page and Strzok, the OIG sought from the FBI all text messages between Strzok and Page from their FBI-issued phones through November 30, 2016, which covered the entire period of the Clinton e-mail server investigation,” Horowitz revealed to both Grassley and Johnson.

This week, Fox News published a portion of the approximately 10,000 texts messages sent between FBI agent Peter Strzok and lawyer Lisa Page. Among the messages is an exchange revealing Strzok and Page discussed an ‘insurance policy,’ against a Trump presidency.
The kicker? Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe may have not only been privy to the conversation, but a part of it.
The discussion took place in his office.
On Wednesday morning, Fox News reporter Bret Baier tweeted the following: “Text-from Peter Strzok to Lisa Page (Andy is Andrew McCabe): “I want to believe the path u threw out 4 consideration in Andy’s office-that there’s no way he gets elected-but I’m afraid we can’t take that risk.It’s like an insurance policy in unlikely event u die be4 you’re 40.”

While Strzok and Page’s text message exchange is explosive on its own, the idea that McCabe may have been involved in this conservation is nothing short of stunning. Do you think the Deputy FBI Director would allow two employees in his office unsupervised?
The real question is, if McCabe was present with both Strzok and Page on the day the ‘insurance policy,’ conservation took place in his office, what thoughts did he convey?
Lisa Page also sent a text to Peter Strzok saying, ‘Trump should go f*ck himself’.

Strzok was removed from Mueller’s witch hunt after it was discovered he was sending anti-Trump text messages to his mistress FBI lawyer Lisa Page.
