The animus displayed by the FBI, a day after Donald Trump won the presidency was on full display by an unidentified FBI employee who angrily described Trump supporters as “uneducated” and “lazy POS.”
According to the bombshell report authored by Inspector General Michael Horowitz, the FBI employee was responding to another “FBI attorney” who had instant messaged him. This attorney along with 4-other FBI employees has been referred for investigation by the IG, for possible disciplinary action by the internal division of the FBI.
Moreover, the attorney in question is actually the “primary FBI attorney” on the Mueller team currently investigating the Russian collusion hoax, and also the same attorney assigned to the Clinton email scandal in “early 2016.”
The IG report goes on to reference what transpired between the two FBI employees on the morning of November 9th, 2016. The day after the Trump victory, “I am so stressed about what I could have done differently.”
The response from the second employee, regarding the investigation of Hillary Clinton, “Don’t stress, none of that mattered.”
The other employee (FBI attorney) responds, “I don’t know, we broke the momentum.”
The other employee responds, “That is not so.”
Adding: “All the people who were initially voting for her would not, and were not, swayed by any decision the FBI put out,” the employee wrote. “Trump’s supporters are all poor to middle class, uneducated, lazy POS that think he will magically grant them jobs for doing nothing. They probably didn’t watch the debates, aren’t fully educated on his policies and are stupidly wrapped up in his unmerited enthusiasm.”
The exchange between the two FBI employees continues, fluctuating between sorrow and anger.
However the most damaging exchange for the FBI’s reputation, was between agent Peter Strzok and another agent in August 2016, when Strzok texted a chilling and threatening message, “we’ll stop” Donald Trump from becoming president.
The ominous warnings continue, this time between lovers Lisa Page and Strzok.
“Trump’s not ever going to become president, right? Right?!” Page texted Strzok.
“No. No, he won’t. We’ll stop it,” Strzok responded.
The 500 page IG report goes on with detailed text messages and emails referencing the overt bias against President Trump, moreover, the contempt shown by the leadership within the FBI, specifically from former FBI Director James Comey and former Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, who has been “criminally” referred by the IG for prosecution.
Horowitz goes on to castigate Comey for his blatant misconduct during the Clinton investigation and found a perverse “willingness to take official action” in preventing Donald Trump from becoming president by senior officials within the FBI.
Appearing only hours after the IG report became public, Republican lawmakers took to the airwaves. Sen. John Kennedy, from Louisiana, appearing on Fox’s popular midday news show “Outnumbered Overtime” said, “In Louisiana, we call that bias, we don’t call that objective.”
Later in the day House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., said in a statement the report shows “an alarming and destructive level of animus displayed by top officials at the FBI.”
Gowdy continued; “Peter Strzok’s manifest bias trending toward animus casts a pall on this investigation…His bias impacted his decision making, and he assigned to himself the role of stopping the Trump campaign or ending a Trump Presidency,” Gowdy said. “This is not the FBI I know.”
Remarkably with the evidence finally being made public, FBI Director Wray held a news conference late in the afternoon attempting to downplay the scathing report.
“I take this report very seriously, and we accept its findings and recommendations,” Wray told a news conference at FBI headquarters in Washington. “The report does identify errors of judgment, violations of or disregard for policy, and decisions that, at the very least, in hindsight, were not the best choices.”
Wray continued; “Nothing in the report impugns the integrity of our workforce as a whole or the FBI as an institution.”
With the words of the FBI Director apparently still ringing in his ears, House Oversight chairman Trey Gowdy, appearing on Fox’s Bret Baier’s “Special Report” responded.
“Chris Wray, I’m sorry, you’re wrong; there are consequences!”
Gowdy continued; “The consequences are that your fellow citizens question whether or not they can have confidence in the world’s premier law enforcement agency, and that’s coming from someone who has defended them a lot throughout his career. This was a bitterly disappointing report,” he continued, “This level of bias and animus, not only did they want to stop the Trump campaign but he wanted to stop the Trump presidency, Peter Strzok.”
Addin, “The FBI agent who was on Hillary Clinton’s investigation and arguably the lead Russia investigator not only wanted to stop his campaign but once he won, got on the Mueller probe because he wanted to impeach him.”
“That is a level of animus and bias that everyone should reject.”
