On Tuesday, Inspector General Michael Horowitz testified in a joint Congressional hearing to the House Oversight and House Judiciary panels about his review of the FBI’s (mis)handling of the Clinton email investigation.
Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) grilled Horowitz over why the damning Strzok text message dated August 8th, 2016 stating “we’ll stop” Trump from becoming president was missing from earlier production.
Horowitz told Jordan he gave the damning text message to the office of the Deputy Attorney General a month ago which only further infuriated the GOP lawmaker.
God Bless Rep. Jim Jordan.
Horowitz admitted to Rep. Jordan he discovered the damning “we’ll stop Trump” text message from Peter Strzok in May.
Rep. Jordan wanted to know who made the decision to withhold this damning text message from Congressional investigators for a month.
“But who made the decision? Was it Mr. Wray, was it Mr. Rosenstein, Mr. Sessions? Who made the decision?” Jordan asked Horowitz.
“We sent it to the Office of Deputy Attorney General,” Horowitz said.
“So, Mr. Rosenstein. Rosenstein made a decision that instead of us seeing the most explosive text message between these two key agents that were on the Clinton team, the Russia team, and on the Special Counsel team, he made a decision to wait a month for us to see that text message,” Rep Jordan said.
Rep. Jordan went on to say this isn’t the first time Rosenstein has kept information from Congress; he has a pattern of secrecy and stonewalling.
Last Thursday we found out Trump-hating FBI Special Agent Peter Strzok sent his mistress Lisa Page a text message saying “we’ll stop” Trump from becoming President
This text message from Strzok was sent to Page 9 days after “Crossfire Hurricane” was opened and 6 days before the “insurance policy” text.
In another damning text exchange between the FBI lovebirds 6 days after Strzok said he’ll “stop” Trump from becoming President, was a discussion about an “insurance policy” to keep Donald Trump out of office.
“I want to believe the path you threw out for consideration in Andy’s office…that there’s no way [Trump] gets elected…but I’m afraid we can’t take that risk,” Strzok text messaged to Page in an Aug. 15, 2016 exchange, referring to Andrew McCabe.
“It’s like an insurance policy in the unlikely event you die before you’re 40,” Strzok added.
Rosenstein must be impeached and investigated immediately.
