Trump attacks his own FBI in series of tweets

Lundi, 04 Déc, 2017

"I had the occasion to work closely with Special Agent Peter Strzok and never experienced even a hint of political bias". When acting attorney general Sally Yates (later fired by Trump) went to the White House on Jan. 26, she told White House Counsel Don McGahn that Flynn had "given the agents the same story he gave the Vice President" about his interactions with Russians.

According to the Washington Post, Peter Strzok, who was a key participant into the investigation into Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server was asked to step aside, according to sources.

He is no stranger to complex and controversial investigations.

According to the Post, the politically charged text messages were exchanged between Strzok and Lisa Page, an FBI lawyer who worked for deputy director Andrew McCabe, in the midst of a extramarital affair during the Clinton investigation and last year's presidential campaign. Page no longer works much with McCabe, these people said. The person who discussed the matter with The Associated Press was not authorized to speak about it by name and spoke on condition of anonymity.

Mr. Trump has repeatedly criticized how the F.B.I. handled the Clinton email investigation, saying that Mrs. Clinton should have been charged.

Current and former FBI officials say the Strzok matter points to a larger, unresolved issue facing the agency as it tries to investigate the president and make a fresh start with a new director, Christopher Wray.

Confirmation of the agent's dismissal from his role on Mueller's team came after two reports surfaced that said the agent may have shared texts that were critical of President Donald Trump.

The committee's infighting has stepped up since October, coinciding with Democratic complaints that Nunes has returned to a more active capacity for Republicans in the committee's Russia investigation.

The Justice Department inspector general's office said in a statement Saturday that its investigators are "reviewing allegations involving communications between certain individuals, and will report its findings regarding those allegations promptly upon completion of the review of them".

A former senior Trump administration official said Strzok was even-handed in all of his dealing with the Trump White House.

Flynn reportedly caved in to plead guilty in the least 24 hours after mounting emotional and financial pressure. He has pled guilty to those lies.

One of the only times I've ever seen my father, a career military man and Vietnam veteran, express genuine concern over the direction of our country was in the wake of the FBI's fall from grace under James Comey. But a major housecleaning by the new director is widely anticipated inside the bureau. "The enemy is better off with him sidelined".
