(National Sentinel)Â Exonerate: During a Thursday evening appearance onÂ Fox News‘ “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., said newly revealed texts between anti-Trump FBI officials Peter Strzok and his mistress Lisa Page show that “the fix was in” to clear Hillary Clinton of any wrongdoing involving her mishandling of classified information.
In aÂ text released to the public, Page, in reference to Clinton, wrote to Strzok, â€œOne more thing: she might be our next president. The last thing you need us going in there loaded for bear. You think sheâ€™s going to remember or care that it was more doj than fbi?â€
He responded,Â â€œI called Bill and relayed what we discussed. He agrees. I will email you and [redacted] same” — in which he appears to be saying he contacted Hillary’s husband, former President Bill Clinton, about the case.
The messages were exchanged during the FBI’s investigation of Clinton’s use of an unsecured private email server while serving as Obama’s secretary of state.
â€œThis, I think is the unvarnished truth ofÂ how they viewed both her, him and theÂ investigation and how theyÂ wanted it to turn out,” Gowdy said.
“Keep in mind, Tucker, all ofÂ this is done before she was everÂ interviewed. So the fix was in. Unfortunately, before they evenÂ interviewed the target of theÂ investigation.â€
Tucker responded:Â â€œWhat does it tell you about whatÂ they thought of Hillary Clinton? They believed, if she becameÂ president she would punish our chiefÂ law enforcement agency forÂ investigating her. What does that say about their view of her? Or their understanding of her?â€
“Itâ€™s either that, or I think anotherÂ reasonable construction is sheâ€™dÂ award the DOJ, thinking it was moreÂ DOJ lawyers that concluded sheÂ should not be charged as opposed to theÂ FBI,” Gowdy said.
“And thatâ€™s actually how I read itâ€“that she would giveÂ more credit to the Department of Justiceâ€“you know, keep in mind, reading these texts, itÂ doesnâ€™t appear that anyone wanted herÂ charged, before they even know whatÂ she was going to say.
“I read that to be, they were concerned the DOJ would get the credit for taking care of her more than the bureau would,” he said.
