Newest Strzok-Page Texts Should Scare You

This week Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC) released new text messages between former FBI employee Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, showing that the two colluded together in a strategic media release to damage President Trump.

Leaks from any law enforcement to the media can be detrimental to a criminal case. Law enforcement relies heavily on testimony from witnesses and any tangible evidence that can further the prosecution of an individual. However, when information is given to the press a public opinion will be formed and the likelihood of a fair trial is diminished. 

Meadows released text messages that show Strzok had nothing on Trump and he knew it. Strzok texted Page to discuss a “media leak strategy.” His comment is exhibit number one describing that there is no evidence of collusion, but he needed something to drive down public opinion. Therefore, calculated media leaks occurred to legacy media outlets. 

In this case, the leaks were lies. The importance of Strzok’s position in the FBI cannot be understated. He was the deputy director of counterintelligence and lying to left-wing media outlets because he knew they would run with the story. Strzok was overtly attempting a soft coup using news publications. 

The media and Strzok are the colluders, not Trump. Regardless of what Strzok believes it is not his job to give information to the press in an attempt to undo the will of American voters. Politics was not intended to be in the FBI. The agency was not created to interfere in American elections, but to investigate organized crime rings and other professional criminals. 

Strzok refused to stop investigating with no evidence of collusion. Instead, he went continued, which should make one wonder why. Who told him to turn towards the media to leak lies, or did he do that himself. Unless there is a digital paper trail or a whistleblower, the chances of actually knowing are very slim. The chance of Obama having no clue doesn’t exist. 

These new text messages contradict Strzok. In mid-July, he testified before the Congressional Oversight Committee that his communication with Page carried no political implications. However, Meadows proved that is a lie with the message content.

Strzok and Page’s text messages should be the beginning of the end of the Mueller investigation. The left blames Trump for wrongdoing in the election by claiming that he somehow colluded with Russia to steal the election, but after a two-year investigation there is no proof, and it will remain that way. The entire charade is about politics and the 2018 midterms. 

Regardless of what Strzok said in his Congressional testimony, he was lying. The truth of his intentions and the reason for the investigation lies within the revealed texts from this summer and the newest ones from this week. 

Do not underestimate the gravity of what we have learned so far. The FBI used its power in an attempt to create a political advantage for one party over the other. From what is known, it is safe to say that we are living in a banana republic, and that should terrify anyone. 

The texts prove the FBI is running a coordinated political attack against a duly elected president, and it is shameful, but the left has no shame.

If Trump declassifies the FISA application and renewals, it will be like fantasy disco. Get your platforms ready.
