Robert Mueller thought he could get away with the perfect crime.
He was hiding a secret about his investigation into Donald Trump and Russia.
But his scheme backfired in a major way and now everyone is asking one big question.
In July, FBI agent Peter Strzok was removed from Mueller’s team.
It was a strange announcement given that Strzok was the number two man in the counterintelligence division.
The basis for his reassignment was shrouded in mystery.
But after former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn pleaded guilty to making false statements to the FBI, the dam burst open and the truth has come out.
And it’s worse than anyone thought.
Strzok was removed from the Mueller team because he had exchanged anti-Trump text messages with a female FBI agent he was reportedly having an affair with during the 2016 campaign.
But the story doesn’t end there.
Investigative journalist Sara Carter reported that Strzok was the agent who supervised the interview with Flynn where he allegedly made his false statements:
“A supervisory special agent who is now under scrutiny after being removed from Robert Mueller’s Special Counsel’s Office for alleged bias against President Trump also oversaw the bureau’s interviews of embattled former National Security advisor Michael Flynn, this reporter has learned. Flynn recently pled guilty to one-count of lying to the FBI last week.
FBI agent Peter Strzok was one of two FBI agents who interviewed Flynn, which took place on Jan. 24, at the White House, said several sources. The other FBI special agent, who interviewed Flynn, is described by sources as a field supervisor in the “Russian Squad, at the FBI’s Washington Field Office,” according to a former intelligence official, with knowledge of the interview.
Strzok was removed from his role in the Special Counsel’s Office after it was discovered he had made disparaging comments about President Trump in text messages between him and his alleged lover FBI attorney Lisa Page, according to the New York Times and Washington Post, which first reported the stories. Strzok is also under investigation by the Department of Justice Inspector General for his role in Hillary Clinton’s email server and the ongoing investigation into Russia’s election meddling. On Saturday, the House Intelligence Committee’s Chairman Devin Nunes chided the Justice Department and the FBI for not disclosing why Strzok had been removed from the Special Counsel three months ago, according to a statement given by the Chairman.”
Mueller covered up this crucial information for months because he never would have obtained the guilty plea from Flynn had this been made public.
“The former U.S. intelligence official told this reporter, “with the recent revelation that Strzok was removed from the Special Counsel investigation for making anti-Trump text messages it seems likely that the accuracy and veracity of the 302 of Flynn’s interview as a whole should be reviewed and called into question.”
“The most logical thing to happen would be to call the other FBI Special Agent present during Flynn’s interview before the Grand Jury to recount his version,” the former intelligence official added.”
The Mueller investigation was tainted from the start.
Strzok was the counterintelligence official in the FBI who signed off on the initial FBI collusion investigation which then morphed into the Mueller probe.
This whole episode has been nothing but anti-Trump partisans exercising their power to undo election results that they refuse to accept.
