FBI agent Peter Strzok was one of the ringleaders of the Deep State conspiracy against Donald Trump.
Strzok recently testified behind closed doors to Congressional investigators.
And Congress is holding the evidence that could land him behind bars.
During Strzok’s testimony he reportedly denied being involved in obtaining a FISA against Trump campaign aide Carter Page.
Republicans could not believe a high ranking FBI counterintelligence agent – who was playing a leading role in the Russia investigation – could not have been in the loop on obtaining a warrant to spy on Page.
Their suspicions were well founded.
John Solomon reported on The Hill that the Department of Justice produced memos to Congress that show Strzok told other FBI agents that news articles about Page were enough of a “pretext” to obtain a warrant:
The memos show Strzok, Lisa Page and others in counterintelligence monitored news articles in September 2016 that quoted a law enforcement source as saying the FBI was investigating Carter Page’s travel to Moscow.
The FBI team pounced on what it saw as an opportunity as soon as Page wrote a letter to then-FBI Director James Comey complaining about the “completely false” leak.
“At a minimum, the letter provides us a pretext to interview,” Strzok wrote to Lisa Page on Sept. 26, 2016.
Within weeks, that “pretext” — often a synonym for an excuse — had been upsized to a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) court warrant, giving the FBI the ability to use some of its most awesome powers to monitor Carter Page and his activities.
The media would like to sweep this story under the rug.
Journalists claim the Deep State doesn’t exist.
But it’s real.
And there is mounting evidence high level FBI agents colluded on a plot to rig the election against Trump.
