What in the world is going on with this Mueller investigation? First of all, he still hasn’t discovered even a sliver of collusion with Russia. It is almost impossible to come to the conclusion that the media manufactured narrative is even a little bit true. Second of all, we are starting to learn that there is an insane level of bias going on within the FBI. Mueller kicked one of the guys who hated Trump off the case but he waited a long time to do it and kept that information from Congress.
From New York Post:
The FBI expert in the middle of a political uproar for mocking President Trump in email messages changed a key phrase in former agency Director James Comey’s description of how Hillary Clinton handled classified information, it was reported Monday.
Records show Peter Strzok, who led the investigation of Clinton’s private email server as the second-highest-ranking official in the counterintelligence division, changed Comey’s draft language describing Clinton’s behavior as “grossly negligent” to “extremely careless,” a source told CNN.
The shift from “grossly negligent” to “extremely careless” was key because the federal law that covers how classified material should be handled calls for criminal penalties for “gross negligence.”
Writing the memo was a team effort, with numerous officials weighing in and suggesting changes, sources say.
Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) questioned the change last month, but the name of the agent who made the edit was not known until now.
That’s what we call a scandal, folks.
Judicial Watch today released two productions (335 pages and 44 pages) of Justice Department (DOJ) documents showing strong support by top DOJ officials for former Acting Attorney General Sally Yates’ refusal to enforce President Trump’s Middle East travel ban executive order. In one email, Andrew Weissmann, one of Robert Mueller’s top prosecutors and formerly the Obama-era Chief of the Justice Department’s Criminal Fraud Section, applauds Yates writing: “I am so proud. And in awe. Thank you so much. All my deepest respects.”
Judicial Watch obtained the documents through a May 2017 Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit filed after the Justice Department failed to respond to a February FOIA request seeking Yates’ emails from her government account (Judicial Watch v. U.S. Department of Justice (No. 1:17-cv-00832)) for the time period she served as Acting Attorney General for President Trump.
The emails, several sent from official Justice Department email addresses, show strong support for Yates, who was fired for disobeying a direct order from the President:
Thomas Delahanty, then the United States Attorney for Maine wrote: “You are my hero.”
Liz Aloi, a career service employee and Chief of the Justice Department’s Special Financial Investigations Unit told Yates she was “Inspirational and heroic.”
Emily Gray Rice, then the U.S. Attorney for New Hampshire and an Obama appointee said: “AAG Yates, thank you, as always, for making us proud. It is truly an honor to work for you.”
Obama appointee Barbara McQuade, U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Michigan told Yates, “Thank you for your courage and leadership. This is wonderful news.”
This investigation is unraveling.
