According to Mark Meadows (R-N.C.), the FBI is still breaking the law. They intentionally “edited and changed” witness reports after they were signed. The chairman of the Freedom Caucus is convinced the FBI then “misled” Inspector General Michael Horowitz on purpose as to why they improperly blacked out witness identities.
“There is growing evidence that 302s were edited and changed,” Meadows forewarned Horowitz. Those are witness interview reports. “It is suggested that they were changed to either prosecute or not prosecute individuals and that is very troubling.”
No better than the common criminals they are meant to catch, the Federal Bureau of Investigation lied to cover up their own crimes. In fact, one interesting point indicates that there is much more going on here than the American people are being told.
At least somebody in Washington, D.C. is honest. During Tuesday’s follow up grilling of the IG, Rep. Meadows asked Horowitz point blank if Kevin Clinesmith and Sally Moyer were the “two anonymous FBI employees identified as making anti-Trump statements” in his report. Kevin Clinesmith actually said he wished he could have obstructed the Trump campaign more.
“FBI Attorney 2” is alleged to be Clinesmith. Moyer was outed as “Agent 5.” Both “played key roles in the Clinton email investigation.” Both of them also worked on Robert Mueller’s special investigation witch hunt.
Agent 5 and another unnamed Agent 1 were present during Hillary Clinton’s interview and both “admitted their utter disdain for Trump and their belief that the Clinton probe was a huge waste of time.”
New information just released with the Inspector General’s report last week revealed that on the night of the election, Attorney 2 typed, “I am numb.” The anonymous “lawyer” on the other end messaged back asking what he would do now, “Viva le resistance,” came the reply.
Horowitz refused to say one way or another who the anonymous agents are, noting that the FBI redacted the names due to the “sensitivity of their counterintelligence matters.” Meadows blasted the FBI lies back with both barrels.
“They don’t work in counterintelligence,” Meadows thundered. “If that’s the reason the FBI is giving, they’re giving you false information, because they work for the [FBI] general counsel.”
FBI officials gave the IG “false information” that two Hillary Clinton fan club members worked in counterintelligence, which is protected, when they really worked for the unprotected Department of Justice.
Horowitz admitted that his office is looking into “information concerning modified 302’s” and promised to “follow up.”
All The political tap-dancing has everyone wondering what else was done to water down the final report. There were a total of 5 names improperly left off of the report.
Rep. Ted Poe (R-Texas) backed Meadows up, demanding to know “What are their names?” As a former trial litigator, Poe mentioned, “he wanted to know if people were biased before seating them on a jury.” In the Clinton email investigation, he pointed out, “here we have a jury taking place on a case and we find out five of the jurors are biased.”
Given the rumors of evidence found by the NYPD, there certainly seems to be incredible bias.
After looking at the text messages from all of them, Horowitz ruled, all five “brought discredit to themselves, sowed doubt about the FBI’s handling of the Midyear investigation, and impacted the reputation of the FBI.” Midyear is what they called the Clinton email server probe.
Rep. Andy Biggs, (R-Az) also put his two cents in on the matter. “The FBI masked people to protect them and then just threw them in the Russian investigation,” he told reporters Wednesday.
After watching the House Judiciary Committee grill IG Horowitz Tuesday, it seemed to Biggs that “they ran an investigation that had a predetermined outcome.” That, he says, is “why so many of us view the report with skepticism.”
Referring to one of the people unmasked by Meadows Tuesday, Biggs notes Kevin Clinesmith was “disappointed that the candidate didn’t win and they didn’t do more to obstruct the Trump campaign.”
“So, he is saying ‘I wish I had it back and I wish I had done more’” Clinesmith eventually was pulled from Mueller’s investigation but still had an influence in the beginning.
Even before Rep. Meadows started interrogating Horowitz, Biggs and his colleagues wrote a “series of letters” asking for the names to be released. “Let us know who they are. Give us the documents that we are supposed to have. This is well beyond time.”
Biggs is already on the subpoena bandwagon with Chuck Grassley (R-Ia.) and Devin Nunes (R-Ca.). “Give them a subpoena. Hold them in contempt. Let’s give the documents, the American people need it. If we will restore it and turn the republic back to the direction it needs to be. Start with the top law enforcement agencies.”
Peter Strzok’s name became a household word and he is the first person everybody thinks of when they think of Donald Trump hating agents. Over a year after his bias surfaced, he was finally suspended without pay on Friday. He was escorted out of the New York headquarters office which indicates that his security clearance was finally taken away too.
President Trump’s attorney Rudy Giuliani also reported this week that Strzok was removed from Mueller’s team a long time ago but some of his “similarly biased cohorts” are still there. That means the whole Russia investigation “may be tainted and infected with bias.”
“If that’s the case, then how can you trust anything they’re doing in this investigation? We have to investigate the investigators, in order to determine if it’s a valid investigation.”
