REPORT: Peter Strzok Saw ZERO PROOF of ‘Trump-Russia’ Collusion After 10 Months of Mueller Witch Hunt
A source familiar with the thinking of FBI agent Peter Strzok revealed to the Daily Caller‘s Chuck Ross that after 10 months of investigating alleged collusion between Trump campaign officials and Russia, no proof had been found.
The Daily Caller reports:
After 10 months of leading the FBI’s Trump-Russia investigation, counterintelligence official Peter Strzok had not seen compelling evidence that President Trump or high-level campaign officials colluded with the Russian government, according to a person familiar with his thinking.
That account comports with a May 19, 2017 text exchange between Strzok and FBI lawyer Lisa Page that was released earlier this week.
“You and I both know the odds are nothing. If I thought it was likely, I’d be there no question. I hesitate in part because of my gut sense and concern that there’s no big there there,” Strzok wrote to Page, his mistress. […]
It was unclear exactly what Strzok meant by the message, but the source close to Strzok affirmed that interpretation of the exchange to The Daily Caller.
Strzok may not like the President, but that doesn’t mean he believes Trump officials colluded with Russia to win the 2016 presidential election. In what is being described as a “jaw-dropping,” text message, Strzok told Bureau lawyer Lisa Page that he felt special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation was likely a nothingburger.
Daily Caller reports:
In an interview with WISN-Milwaukee radio host Jay Weber, Johnson read aloud a May 19, 2017 text that Strzok sent to Lisa Page, an FBI lawyer and his mistress.
Strzok wrote: “You and I both know the odds are nothing. If I thought it was likely, I’d be there no question. I hesitate in part because of my gut sense and concern that there’s no big there there.”
Johnson said that the text referred to the Mueller investigation, which had kicked off two days earlier. […]
As the FBI’s deputy counterintelligence chief, Strzok was picked in July 2016 to oversee the investigation into possible Trump campaign collusion with the Russian government. […]
“I think that’s kind of jaw-dropping,” said Johnson, a Republican, said of the Strzok text.
“In other words, Peter Strzok, who was the FBI deputy assistant director of the counterintelligence division, the man who had a plan to do something because he just couldn’t abide Donald Trump being president, is saying that his gut sense is that there’s no big there there when it comes to the Mueller special counsel investigation,” he said.
On Sunday, we learned additional text messages sent and received by disgraced FBI agent Peter Strzok had been handed over to Congress. In yet another twist to the Strzok saga, the FBI failed to hand over a block of the agent’s text messages between Dec. 14, 2016, and May 17, 2017 because they went “missing.”
On Thursday, Inspector General Michael Horowitz notified Senate Judiciary chairman Chuck Grassley (R-IA) that the text messages between Strzok and Page had been retrieved.
In August, ABC News reported that Strzok quit Team Mueller for unknown reasons. “It’s unclear why Strzok stepped away from Mueller’s team of nearly two dozen lawyers, investigators and administrative staff. Strzok, who has spent much of his law enforcement career working counterintelligence cases and has been unanimously praised by government officials who spoke with ABC News, is now working for the FBI’s human resources division,” reported Mike Levine.
