FBI and DOJ. These two agencies are making the rounds today on social media like wildfire is a press release that went largely unnoticed in January.
Who or what is being investigated? According to the release, “the Office of the Inspector General (OIG) will initiate a review of allegations regarding certain actions by the Department of Justice (Department) and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) in advance of the 2016 election.”
Here’s the press release from January:
Now that you’ve read that document, consider these recent tweets, one from Eric ‘Contempt of Congress’ Holder, responding to President Trump’s remarks about the “FBI being in tatters.” How well will these age?
Nope. Not letting this go. The FBI’s reputation is not in “tatters”. It’s composed of the same dedicated men and women who have always worked there and who do a great, apolitical job. You’ll find integrity and honesty at FBI headquarters and not at 1600 Penn Ave right now

“I want the American people to know this truth: The FBI is honest. The FBI is strong. And the FBI is, and always will be, independent.”

The FBI is in “tatters”? No. The only thing in tatters is the President’s respect for the rule of law. The dedicated men and women of the FBI deserve better.

Also under review – How Mueller’s secret firing of Peter Strzok, who is apparently very anti-Trump and had involvement in both the Clinton email scandal and the Fusion GPS dossier.
DOJ's Office of Inspector General is reviewing the role played in the Clinton email investigation by Peter Strzok, a former deputy director for counterintelligence at the FBI who was removed from Special Counsel Mueller's probe earlier this year. https://t.co/B02oYKZKnX

Yesterday, a bombshell dropped about Strzok – he interviewed Flynn:
FBI agent Peter Strzok was one of two FBI agents who interviewed Flynn, which took place on Jan. 24, at the White House, said several sources. The other FBI special agent, who interviewed Flynn, is described by sources as a field supervisor in the “Russian Squad, at the FBI’s Washington Field Office,” according to a former intelligence official, with knowledge of the interview.
But there was more. Now the interview itself is being called into question due to Strzok’s involvement:
The former U.S. intelligence official told this reporter, “with the recent revelation that Strzok was removed from the Special Counsel investigation for making anti-Trump text messages it seems likely that the accuracy and veracity of the 302 of Flynn’s interview as a whole should be reviewed and called into question.”
“The most logical thing to happen would be to call the other FBI Special Agent present during Flynn’s interview before the Grand Jury to recount his version,” the former intelligence official added.
The former official also said that “Strzok’s allegiance to (Deputy Director Andrew) McCabe was unwavering and very well known.”
The hits keep coming with Strzok as the Daily Caller reported: Embattled FBI supervisor Peter Strzok also conducted the interviews with Huma Abedin and Cheryl Mills, in which they falsely claimed they didn’t know about Hillary’s email server when she was Secretary of State.
And there’s the allegations by former Intelligence Community Inspector General Charles McCullough about the Clinton email scandal.

McCullough told FOX news’ Tucker Carlson that that the Clinton email probe was politicized and that his office was systematically attacked and marginalized by Democrats.
“Had the information (Crooked Hillary’s emails) been released there would have been harm to National Security…."

Let that sink in, the information in Clinton’s emails would have brought,”…harm to National Security.”
Remember, Clinton has maintained nothing in her emails was classified. That is, the emails remaining on her private server which she used ‘bleachbit‘ on to destroy evidence.
Judicial Watch has already produced proof that Clinton did have classified material on her servers and that material was forwarded to Clinton Foundation employees.
Judicial Watch found even more classified emails recently in a cache of Clinton emails (72,000) that the FBI collected during the email scandal and finally turned over to the watchdog group.
Stay tuned. Things are likely going to get very interesting, likely in January since the IG has said they are ‘close’ to making their report.
