Deep State FBI Agent Bill Priestap Caught in a Lie Referring to “Lisa and Peter Strzok” Affair
Guest post by Joe Hoft
Former FBI Investigator and Assistant Director of the FBI Counterintelligence Division, Bill Priestap, lied in front of Congress in testimony in the summer of 2017. Priestap’s lie surrounds the affair between FBI lovers “Lisa and Peter Strzok”.
Bill Priestap held a very high position in the FBI during the years 2015 to 2018. His tenure was in place during the Trump – Russia hoax and the Hillary email scandal exoneration.
In his testimony in front of the House on June 5, 2018, Priestap answered a number of questions. Unfortunately we found that at least one of his answers does not add up.
During his testimony Priestap notes that he and Peter Strzok were classmates (p. 30) –
I think once in my career I socialized with Peter Strzok. Peter was in my academy class. So once we were at the same thing, work thing — or not work thing. But otherwise, nobody was a personal acquaintance. They were all professional acquaintance.
During another series of questions about Peter Strzok, Priestap slipped up (p. 44) –
Priestap …after Pete had been reporting to me for a considerable amount of time, somebody brought to my attention that that behavior might be going on. And so that’s when it — I became aware that that was a possibility.
Q So someone who works at the FBI?
Priestap Yes. Yep.
Q And can you say who that person was?
Priestap I — , there’s — it’s going to be — it’s going to be one of two, but I don’t know which one.
Mr. Boente. Okay. To the best you can.
Priestap. Okay. If I recall correctly, it was either Sally Moyer and Jonathan Moffa.
Q About when was this?
Priestap What is today? I would guess — I would guess about a year ago, but it’s a guess, so — but a considerable amount of time I had been in the job and Pete had been reporting to me before this had brought –
Q Did you take any action based on that?
Priestap I did.
Q What action?
Priestap I spoke to Deputy Director McCabe about it. I also spoke to both Pete and Lisa about it. I felt I owed it to them. Lisa did not report to me, but I felt that they ought to be aware of what was being said. I didn’t ask them if it was true, but they needed to know that that impression was out there. And I don’t remember my exact words. But what I was trying to communicate is this better not interfere with things, if you know what
I mean. Like, to me, the mission is everything. And so, we all have our personal lives, what have you. I’m not the morality police.
Q But that behavior would make them vulnerable to an intelligence service.
Priestap In my opinion, yes.
The highlighted phrase above is a lie. The date of the testimony in front of Congress was June 5, 2018. One year prior to that would have been June 2017. At this time, the corrupt FBI Agent Peter Strzok and his lover FBI Attorney Lisa Page were on the Mueller team. If this was before the Mueller team was in place, then why did Priestap not notify Mueller of the affair? He would have had a duty to do so!
Priestap’s actions related to the affair between “Lisa and Peter Strzok” as President Trump recently referred to them, could not have occurred at the time stated by Priestap. If they were before the lover’s time on the Mueller team, Priestap had a duty to communicate the affair with Mueller.
