Fired FBI counterintelligence agent Peter Strzok’s “Crossfire Hurricane” unit was forced to look on as President-elect Trump was inaugurated in January 2017 after being taken out of the loop in briefing the incoming commander-in-chief.
What’s more, according to new emails unearthed by Judicial Watch, Strzok expressed his anger because he wanted to be in on any action that could help him ensnare the president or any member of his incoming administration.
FBI Agent Peter Strzok and his FBI Crossfire Hurricane unit were focused on the White House during President Trump's inauguration celebration, so much so that the 'angry' agent complained he was kept out of the loop on a bureau counter-intelligence briefing there.
Mr. Strzok, who would later be fired for his anti-Trump messages to FBI lawyer Lisa Page, erupted the day after Mr. Trump became president, according to newly released emails obtained by Judicial Watch, a conservative watchdog in Washington.
Mr. Strzok said in an email to his boss, counter-intelligence chief Bill Priestap, he could have folded the FBI briefing into his strategy for investigating Trump associates.
'I heard from [redacted] about the WH CI briefing routed from [redacted],' Mr. Strzok said. 'I am angry that Jen [colleague Jennifer Boone] did not at least cc: me, as my branch has pending investigative matters there, this brief may play into our investigative strategy, and I would like the ability to have visibility and provide thoughts/counsel to you in advance of the briefing. This is one of the reasons why I raised the issue of lanes/responsibilities that I did when you asked her to handle WH detailee interaction.'
The afternoon and night before the inauguration, a bevy of heavily redacted emails were exchanged by Mr. Strzok and other high-ranking counter intelligence officials.
'These documents suggest that President Trump was targeted by the [then-director James] Comey FBI as soon as he stepped foot in the Oval Office,' said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton.
The Times noted further:
By inauguration day, the FBI had reversed its decision to close a case on retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, Mr. Trump's national security adviser. Agents were examining his phone calls during the transition with Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak.
Three days later, Mr. Strzok would travel to the White House to interview Mr. Flynn, who would pled guilty in December 2017 to lying. The Trump Justice Department moved in May to drop the case, citing undisclosed FBI files that would have helped Mr. Flynn's case.
The more information released about this case and those who were involved in it, the more it stinks.
There should be indictments. They should have come a long time ago.
Because if Joe Biden wins in November, the one coup attempt against a sitting, duly elected president in our country’s history will be swept back under the rug and forgotten.
