Sen Grassley has put FBI Director Wray on notice. The hiding of documents related to the bias of Mueller operatives and FBI officials, Strzok particularly, must end now or else.
Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley has been frustrated for months, as has House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, over the continued obstruction and withholding of key documents by the DOJ and FBI.
Now, after revelations of impropriety and political bias on behalf of a key investigator, Peter Strzok, in both the sham Clinton investigation and the Russia, Russia, Russia witch hunt, Grassley is intensifying his demands that the cover up at DOJ end and he be given the documents his committee is asking for.
Grassley is demanding documents related to all activities of Strzok. In a letter to FBI Director and Mueller crony Christopher Wray, Grassley wrote, “The communications between members of the Clinton email investigation team raise questions about the integrity of that investigation and about the objectivity of Mr. Strzok’s work for the special counsel and in the FBI’s investigation of Flynn.”
He added, “Strzok’s behavior and involvement in these two politically sensitive cases raises new concerns of inappropriate political influence in the work of the FBI.” Grassley’s office confirmed on Wednesday that they have still yet to receive FBI cooperation with previous requests for the production of documents related to the communications of Strzok and others.
The House Intelligence Committee has had similar difficulties in its struggles with the cover ups at DOJ and the FBI, prompting chairman Devin Nunes to order that contempt charges be prepared against them. He promised that they would be filed if the documents being sought are not provided by the Christmas break.
Grassley stated in his letter to Wray that, “it appears” that Mueller “may have learned this information [Strzok bias] from the Office of [Justice Department’s] Inspector General’s ongoing review of the handling of controversial pre-election activities of the Justice Department and FBI related to the campaign.”
No, Senator, it appears that there was a “how could you be so stupid as to put it in writing” moment for Mueller and his hit squad at which time Strzok was removed in order to protect the witch hunt. There is no reasonable doubt that his anti-Trump political bias was fully known and shared by his fellow DOJ, FBI and special counsel zealots.
Strzok is a top FBI official who led their counterintelligence division. He was reassigned to work in the FBI’s human resources department after being removed from the Mueller witch hunt for anti-Trump tweets to his mistress, who also worked for Mueller and which were sent during the Clinton sham investigation he oversaw.
Grassley referenced news reports, writing that Strzok “appears to have been responsible for removing language suggesting legal jeopardy for Clinton” in Comey’s conclusion of that investigation. He was also one of two agents that would later interview General Michael Flynn.
Grassley noted that he had previously requested, in an October letter to Strzok, his “voluntary cooperation and a private transcribed interview with the committee.” Not surprisingly, he never received a reply.
Grassley asked in his letter to Wray to review not only the text messages between Strzok and his mistress, Lisa Page, but also all other communications containing either favorable or unfavorable statements about either President Trump or Hillary Clinton. He also wants to see any communications involving Strzok which concerned decisions about closing the Clinton sham investigation or opening the Russia, Russia, Russia.
The FBI has until December 11th to comply. It is unclear what action will be taken, if any, if they continue to thumb their nose at oversight as an armed, rogue agency.
