The Storm, Week 7: Lay Siege to Mammon (Sticky Post)


When you really examine the cause of our modern afflictions, it’s clear that the age-old vices of avarice and bribery lay at the center.

Those who currently control the populace through power and propaganda do not believe in storing up their treasures in heaven. Ego is all to the sociopathic elites and money is the way they keep score with one another.

To reside in the toniest mansion, to keep the prettiest trophy wife, to bathe in the fullest adoration of the mindless masses, they must keep the status quo rolling.

If accepting bribes from foreign powers helps the bottom line, so be it.

If a few million Soros Bucks means destroying traditional Western culture, then that is no cost at all.

If taking kickbacks enables the banking game of “Hard Asset Monopoly” to grind down the lower and middle classes into poverty, then who cares? Those people don’t live in the bribe-taker’s gated community. Usury and inflation don’t affect the minions of plutocrats.

In short, we are ruled by worshipers of Mammon -the oligarchs – and their grift-and-graft toadies, the corrupt politicians.

Speaking of graft, here is an apt quote from C.S. Lewis’ The Screwtape Letters:

Instead of this, what have we had tonight? There was a municipal authority with Graft sauce. But personally I could not detect in him the flavour of a really passionate and brutal avarice such as delighted one in the great tycoons of the last century. Was he not unmistakably a Little Man — a creature of the petty rake-off pocketed with a petty joke in private and denied with the stalest platitudes in his public utterances — a grubby little nonentity who had drifted into corruption, only just realizing that he was corrupt, and chiefly because everyone else did it?

Tell me that isn’t six lines of the hammer striking the nail squarely.

And would it not be the greatest irony that a political storm devised by a billionaire who used to rub elbows with these Mammonites would be what ultimately consumes the entire system?

War of Words Between House Intel Committee and Fusion GPS Heating Up


Fusion and the House at first worked out a deal for relevant banks records. But House lawyers say they learned that Fusion withheld 112 transactions pertinent to the Russia probe.

The suspect transactions, House lawyers say, deal with two Russia issues. One is the dossier. The other is Fusion’s payments from another law firm, BakerHostetler. That money came from the Russian firm Prevezon Holdings which is lobbying Washington to repeal a law that brought stiff economic sanctions on President Vladimir Putin’s regime.

In that vein, the House committee wants copies of Fusion bank transfers with other law firms in addition to Perkins Coie and Hostetler.

Fusion has established a pattern and practice of using law firms as intermediaries to mask the true beneficiaries of its research,” the House filing says.

In addition, the committee wants transactions related to the Washington Free Beacon, a conservative news site funded by GOP-mega-donor Paul Singer. The Beacon first hired Fusion in 2015 to investigate then-candidate Donald Trump, an anathema to many D.C. establishment Republicans.

A reminder: it looks like the Committee wants to know more about the Free Beacon being involved with Fusion. Bill Kristol and Evan McMullin might want to lawyer up if they haven’t already.

Washington Free Beacon, Bill Kristol and Evan McMullin

Fusion’s attorneys did not hide their disapproval of what they called Mr. Nunes’ “fishing expedition” and “McCarthy-like” tactics.

If they had not filed suit, the said, “the committee would have happily prowled through all of [Fusion‘s] banking records and used them for no purpose other than to inflict harm …. We respectfully submit that [committee Republicans are] using these overbroad demands to punish [Fusion] for having investigated Mr. Trump.”

The attorneys asserted that Fusion enjoys “a First Amendment right to associate freely with clients and contractors on political and other matters and a First Amendment right to engage in those client activities when they further political and commercial speech.”

House attorneys argued Fusion has no such rights.

“It is instead a profit-maximizing hired gun, selling it investigative services to the highest bidder,” they said. “[Fusion‘s] goal––to be highly compensated for its work––is not protected associational interest.”

Fusion co-founder Glenn Simpson, a former Wall Street Journal reporter, had Mr. Steele brief a number of liberal press sites in Washington during the election.

The House court filings mentioned two who wrote stories on dossier dirt––Yahoo News and Mother Jones.

Fusion’s specialty is seeding its opposition research into news stories, a modus operandi highlighted by a 2011 interview with co-founder Peter Fritsch,” the House attorneys said. Mr. Fritsch is also a former Wall Street Journal reporter.


John Conyers Resigns Judiciary Post

The storm winds continue to blow even on a long holiday weekend, apparently. It seems Mr. Conyers finally folded on his lawyer’s bluff. If a 52-year incumbent in one of the safest Democratic districts in America cannot withstand the withering gaze of angry women, it appears Al Franken has some sweating to do, as does Joe Barton.

I would imagine Conyers will eventually go whole hog – or should we save that expression for Mr. Barton? – and resign from Congress entirely to save what little dignity he has left.

One of the possible byproducts of all these elderly congressmen getting caught drawers-down is a nascent deterrent effect. Those contemplating running for public office in this environment that have ANY skeletons in their closet surely must be thinking twice.

Is shame making a comeback?

Is the allure of power still strong enough to overcome the endless humiliation?

Could we be embarking on a new era where only the ethical and moral run for office?

Leaving aside the grave issue of whether privacy in modern life has been completely obliterated forever, if the answer to the questions above are yes, no, and yes, then America might attract the best human beings in positions of leadership in the future.


Fethullah Gulen and the Clinton Foundation

The article referenced is a must-read primer on Fethullah Gulen. He’s hardly a household name, but when you finish reading, you’ll understand his importance. It’s a long, thoroughly researched article, and well worth the time invested. A chunk of it is below:

The mainstream narrative is that squeaky-clean special prosecutor Robert Mueller is going to indict Trump’s one-time foreign policy advisor Michael Flynn because Flynn is in the pocket of the Russians and the Turks.

But the truth might be totally different …

After all, Flynn’s meeting with Russian diplomats was completely normal, according to a prominent U.S. Ambassador to the Soviet Union.

So why is Mueller really going after Flynn?

When Flynn was head of the U.S. Defense Intelligence Agency and afterwards, he blew the whistle on the U.S. and its allies willfully allowing Islamic terrorists to flourish in Syria.

That didn’t ingratiate him with the Deep State …

Then last November, Flynn ruffled more feathers by writing:

The primary bone of contention between the U.S. and Turkey is Fethullah Gülen, a shady Islamic mullah residing in Pennsylvania whom former President Clinton once called his “friend” in a well circulated video.
 Gülen portrays himself as a moderate, but he is in fact a radical Islamist. He has publicly boasted about his “soldiers” waiting for his orders to do whatever he directs them to do.


To professionals in the intelligence community, the stamp of terror is all over Mullah Gülen’s statements in the tradition of Qutb and al Bana. Gülen’s vast global network has all the right markings to fit the description of a dangerous sleeper terror network.


To add insult to injury, American taxpayers are helping finance Gülen’s 160 charter schools in the United States. These schools have been granted more H1-B visas than Google. It is inconceivable that our visa officers have approved thousands of visas for English teachers whose English is incomprehensible. A CBS “60 Minutes” program documented a conversation with one such imported English teacher from Turkey. Several lawsuits, including some in Ohio and Texas, point to irregularities in the operation of these schools.

 However, funding seems to be no problem for Gülen’s network. Hired attorneys work to keep the lucrative government source of income for Gülen and his network going. Influential charities such as Cosmos Foundation continue their support for Gülen’s charter schools.

Incidentally, Cosmos Foundation is a major donor to Clinton Foundation. No wonder Bill Clinton calls Mullah Gülen “his friend.” It is now no secret that Huma Abedin, Hillary Clinton’s close aide and confidante, worked for 12 years as the associate editor for a journal published by the London-based Institute of Minority Muslim Affairs. This institute has promoted the thoughts of radical Muslim thinkers such as Qutb, al Bana and others.


The forces of radical Islam derive their ideology from radical clerics like Gülen, who is running a scam. We should not provide him safe haven.

Now, Mueller is reportedly investigating Flynn specifically for his criticism of Gülen.

What George Washington, the pseudonymous author of the Zero Hedge piece, is referring to is the article in The Hill which states that Robert Mueller is investigating Flynn for his participation in an anti-Gulen documentary.

Where I disagree with the article is in the conclusion. Sibel Edmonds, quoted in the article, believes Mueller is going after Flynn to jail him to cover up for Gulen.

First, President Trump and Flynn are very tight (so much so, that I think the reason Trump appears so prescient is because Flynn gave him all the goods on the last administration); Trump, in this unlikely scenario, would simply pardon Flynn before he gets fingerprinted and processed.

Secondly, I believe the very last thing the Deep State wants is Michael Flynn being hauled in front of committees or a jury so he can spill what he knows not just about Gulen, but Obama, Syria, and ISIS as well. As Director of the Defense Intelligence Agency, Flynn was in a position to know a lot of the Obama Administration’s secrets. And as we know, Flynn and BHO did not part on the best of terms.

Flynn also knows about the Clinton Foundation and trafficking.

From Wikipedia:

According to what Flynn had told in one final interview as DIA director, he felt like a lone voice in thinking that the United States was less safe from the threat of Islamic terrorism in 2014 than it was prior to the 9/11 attacks; he went on to believe that he was pressed into retirement for questioning the Obama administration’s public narrative that Al Qaeda was close to defeat.[33] Journalist Seymour Hersh wrote that “Flynn confirmed [to Hersh] that his agency had sent a constant stream of classified warnings … about the dire consequences of toppling [Syrian President] Assad.” Flynn recounted that his agency was producing intelligence reports indicating that radical Islamists were the main force in the Syrian insurgency and “that Turkey was looking the other way when it came to the growth of the Islamic State inside Syria”. According to Flynn, these reports “got enormous pushback from the Obama administration,” who he felt “did not want to hear the truth”. According to former DIA official W. Patrick Lang: “Flynn incurred the wrath of the White House by insisting on telling the truth about Syria … they shoved him out. He wouldn’t shut up.”[34] In an interview with Al Jazeera, Flynn criticized the Obama administration for its delay in supporting the opposition in Syria, thereby allowing for the growth of Al Nusra and other extremist forces: “when you don’t get in and help somebody, they’re gonna find other means to achieve their goals” and that “we should have done more earlier on in this effort, you know, than we did.”[35]

For those too young to remember, there was such a thing as Olliemania during the Iran-Contra scandal. Military men, particularly those with a lot of “fruit salad” on their chests, always look better in the eyes of the public than politicians and prosecutors pushing agendas.

If Mueller is – like I believe –  Trump’s Trojan Horse to flush the Deep State (and the Clinton Foundation in particular) Flynn seems like the kind of man from whom he’d like to get testimony under oath.


It May Seem Off the Cuff, But Trump is Steadily Branding Elizabeth Warren…

…in a way she won’t like if she does decide to run in 2020. Trump’s going to make sure no one forgets.

And he’s dead right when he says the media reaction to those exposing corruption is usually harsher than on those who are its beneficiaries.


McCabe May Finally be on the Way Out

Sources said McCabe may currently be negotiating an amicable exit from the FBI.

Wray, the newly-minted FBI director, was appointed by President Donald Trump. Wray decided to effectively demote McCabe and remove him from high-profile cases.

McCabe has come under fire on many fronts in recent months.

FBI sources said Wray no longer had confidence in McCabe’s ability to serve as second in command of the Bureau.

One federal law enforcement source called the OIG probe into McCabe’s associations with the Hillary Clinton campaign a “train wreck.”

One source said McCabe is on “borrowed time” at the FBI.

Early Retirements, Part I

First, the news that frequent job-hopper Keith Olbermann is retiring from political commentary

Olbermann’s stated reason for his retirement essentially is “my job is done here,” because he is almost certain Trump will be impeached.

He used to be a pretty good sports guy on ESPN back in the 90s, so I will put this in similar terms.

What Keith is doing is the political version of Jim Marshall’s “wrong way” touchdown. Olbermann is spiking the football without knowing he’s in his own end zone. Seemingly. It’s also possible that he’s getting out before anything breaks that either shows he’s been 100% wrong on Russia! Russia! Russia!

He was so over-the-top in his role as part of the “resistance”, it almost had to be an act. And Keith has a reputation as being something of a hired gun who usually left his media gigs due to conflicts with his bosses. If I were a high chamberlain in the Deep State and needed a well-known media type to push a fake agenda, I’d look for just such a man as Keith. I’m just spitballing, but I wouldn’t be surprised if we eventually find out he was on the Fusion GPS journalist payroll.

Either way, the leftist world will miss his antics and such brilliant commentary as:


On Hillary Clinton and Special Access Programs

In early 2016, the excellent Catherine Herridge reported that Hillary Clinton had SAPs on her homebrew server. There was barely a peep in the MSM media about this at the time.

Well now, Herridge’s source from that article, the former Intelligence Inspector General, Charles McCullough, has fleshed out his personal experience in a new interview with Herridge.

[For those unaware, Special Access Project clearance is the highest level of clearance – beyond top secret – and given purely on a need-to-know basis. It is likely that Clinton’s reckless and criminal behavior has gotten people killed as a result of this information being stolen. Or sold to the highest bidder, knowing the Clinton modus operandi.]

Please have a watch. This is a critical interview.

Highlights from the newest Herridge article:

After the Clapper meeting, McCullough said his team was marginalized. “I was told by senior officials to keep [Clapper] out of it,” he said, while acknowledging he tried to keep his boss in the loop.

Clapper essentially did nothing after McCullough warned him. Dereliction of duty by Clapper.

In March 2016, seven senior Democrats sent a letter to McCullough and his State Department counterpart, saying they had serious questions about the impartiality of the Clinton email review. However, McCullough was not making the decisions on what material in Clinton’s emails was classified — he was passing along the findings of the individual agencies who got the intelligence and have final say on classification.

“I think there was certainly a coordinated strategy,” McCullough said.

McCullough described one confrontation with Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s office just six weeks before the election, amid pressure to respond to the letter – which Feinstein had co-signed.

“I thought that any response to that letter would just hyper-politicize the situation,” McCullough said. “I recall even offering to resign, to the staff director. I said, ‘Tell [Feinstein] I’ll resign tonight. I’d be happy to go. I’m not going to respond to that letter. It’s just that simple.”

As Election Day approached, McCullough said the threats went further, singling out him and another senior government investigator on the email case.

“It was told in no uncertain terms, by a source directly from the campaign, that we would be the first two to be fired — with [Clinton’s] administration. That that was definitely going to happen,” he said.

This is pertinent also because it speaks to how confident the Clinton campaign was of victory. And why everyone in the Deep State are in such a state of panic today. The moment Trump won, they knew it would all come out. Not just this, but everything. This is your reason for the phony Russia story and the drumming up of civil discontent. Coup time or noose time for the Deep State.

Asked what would have happened to him if he had done such a thing, McCullough said: “I’d be sitting in Leavenworth right now.”

Fox News asked a Clinton campaign spokesman, Feinstein’s office and Clapper for comment. There was no immediate response.

Naturally, they clam up. They are in neck deep in the River of Shit.

One of the reasons I knew 2017 would be the Year of Reckoning (before Trump had even been elected) was because previously silenced and threatened whistleblowers would be able to come forward once they felt safe under a new administration. Trump offered them refuge. Folks are emboldened when others show courage first.


Matt Lauer Out

Per NBC:

Matt Lauer, an anchor of “Today” for two decades, was fired by NBC News after a detailed complaint about inappropriate sexual behavior in the workplace that took place during the 2014 Sochi Olympics.

The accusation also noted that the alleged behavior continued after the games, NBC News confirmed.

“Today” co-anchors Savannah Guthrie and Hoda Kotb were emotional as they announced Lauer’s firing Wednesday, telling viewers at the top of the show that they were processing his departure but didn’t yet know all of the details.

In a memo to employees sent Wednesday morning, NBC News Chairman Andrew Lack said the complaint, which was made by a female colleague of Lauer’s, prompted a serious review and represented a “clear violation of our company’s standards.”

President Trump had something to say about Andy Lack:

In that same article, the reporter conveniently omitted Trump’s dig at Lack.

Early Wednesday, President Donald Trump noted Lauer’s firing on Twitter, writing, “Wow, Matt Lauer was just fired from NBC for ‘inappropriate sexual behavior in the workplace.’ But when will the top executives at NBC & Comcast be fired for putting out so much Fake News.”

What courage. Selectively paraphrasing the president of the United States because you’re afraid of upsetting your boss. The state of “reporting”in 2017 in a nutshell.


I Guess We Know Why Trump Called Him Psycho Joe

Trump has taken righteous trolling to a whole new level. Wow! He actually went there.

Remember the Psycho Joe and Bloody Mika tweet?

We are watching in real-time as President Trump is intimating that the rumors about Scarborough and the dead intern have merit.

With Trump’s intel contacts and seeming prescience during his time in office, you can bet he’s damned sure about the allegations against ol’ Morning Joe. This is not something he’d lob out without knowing he’ll be proven right.

President Trump dredged up a notorious old mystery with his latest bomb at NBC, citing the bizarre death 16 years ago of a young female staffer in the office of then-congressman and current “Morning Joe” co-host Joe Scarborough.

The story of Lori Klausutis has dogged Scarborough on the Internet since she was found dead in his Florida district office on July 19, 2001. Although Scarborough was out of town — and the medical examiner later ruled she had died after falling and hitting her head on a desk — conspiracy theorists have long speculated, with no reliable evidence, that Scarborough could have been somehow involved in Klausutis’ death. And now the president appears to be joining in.

More on Trump’s master class in trolling and how he has radically altered the Overton Window:

The Overton Window and Donald Trump


Whither Tillerson?

Reports are coming out from The New York Times that Secretary of State Rex Tillerson’s head in on the chopping block and that the White House is believed to be looking at CIA head spook Mike Pompeo as his replacement, with Tom Cotton tapped to replace Pompeo.

I’m honestly not sure what to make of this one. About all I’m sure of is that there is some measure of Kabuki involved.

Trump has been toying with the MSM media via planted leaks ever since he assumed office. This could be another such case. The story is based on two unnamed sources (natch!) and the story was written by one Maggie Haberman, the woman who literally laughed at the prospect of Trump winning the GOP presidential nomination.

Btw, also featured in that clip is the detestable Clinton hatchet-man George Stephanopoulos, a recipient of many a dirty Clinton favor. Remember this?

Funny how he ended up with David Brinkley’s old job, init? But I digress.

Back to Maggie Haberman. If you were President Trump or his advisors plotting to plant a leak, I would think the woman who laughed at you might be a good choice for a setup.

But it’s also possible that this is a true news item, that Trump is, in fact, dissatisfied with Tillerson, or even that he kept him around in a “keep your enemies close” kind of way. The endorsement wasn’t exactly ringing.

And then there is this:

“our” “deep State” “rigged and corrupt?”

“Our” as in current.

“deep State” is probably not a capitalization error.

Is he signaling Tillerson’s done a poor job ferreting out Hillary/Obama holdovers at the State Dept.?

Who knows. I really have no clue on this one. But I’m sure Trump will have a surprise for us one way or another with regards to Tillerson.


Nancy Pelosi Flips Her Opinion on John Conyers

No surprise at all. On the 26th I wrote that Conyers will eventually step down/be forced to resign.

I would imagine Conyers will eventually go whole hog – or should we save that expression for Mr. Barton? – and resign from Congress entirely to save what little dignity he has left.

This appears even likelier today. Critical mass in politics and public opinion is usually pretty predictable. There are few in the public eye who can withstand that wringer draining out every drop of self-respect and being (rightfully in this case) humiliated in front of millions.

Politicians, for all their graft and corruption, equally enjoy the adoration and respect their offices command. They want to be admired AND dine at the piggy trough…something about having your cake and eating it too. It takes a special kind of stubborn, righteous, or stupid to stick around after the media and fellow Washington vultures descend upon the wounded. I doubt Conyers is up to the fight at his age.



Winning in politics is not something that happens overnight. Incremental gains are how it should be measured- three yards and a cloud of dust would be a good sports analogy – especially when there are decades of corruption to be eradicated.

Trump is winning, which means we, the people are winning. The enemies of the Deep State are doing what is necessary; advancing criminal cases, investigations, stings on multiple fronts, leaving hardly any scandal untouched. It could not be any other way. To go any faster would lead to sloppy work when airtight cases are needed. To drain the swamp all at once would lead to a bunker mentality on the left, where accusations of political purges would be lobbed against the president.

In addition, consider the foreign policy ramifications of revealing too much, too fast; when the overseas heads of state learn of the depths to which the Clintons and other members of the Deep State ran criminal and immoral operations in their countries for pure power and profit, there will need to be careful diplomacy. I believe Trump has started this process during his meetings with world leaders in Saudi Arabia and on his Asian trip.

So be patient but without being a spectator. Keep pressing for the truth from your elected officials. Continue disseminating the news of the swamp’s scandals.

Everything seems to be advancing as it should. Before you know it, there will be indictments and trials.

Have you noticed the trends and signs? Step back from the news cycle and look from the bird’s eye view. From the time the storm started a mere two months ago, notice how the Deep State is constantly on its heels? Go back through the previous Storm Threads for reference. Has anything so much as dinged the president’s armor in that time? His enemies can make no such claim. They are in full retreat, the luckiest of whom are barely able to save face at this point.

Look at all the resignations of sitting Democrats and Never-Trumpers in the GOP establishment, either through scandal or fear of being washed out with the storm’s tide.

So much of what goes on in the press and online is Kabuki. But deals, threats of legal action and political retribution are still done behind closed doors. The “smoke-filled rooms” might not contain the stale aroma of dozens of Marlboros and Cuban cigars butted out in ashtrays anymore, but they still exist metaphorically.

Oh, how I would love to be a fly on the wall right now.


Sara Carter’s Latest on Uranium One: DOJ Didn’t Interview Informant in Prior Investigation

Sara Carter, John Solomon, and Peter Schweizer all deserve awards for the work they’ve done on this case.

Department of Justice prosecutors did not interview a confidential informant and main witness in a Russian nuclear industry bribery and laundering case in 2014, prior to issuing its indictments against the defendants, this reporter has learned.

This “oversight” was disclosed in a briefing by the Department of Justice to the Senate Judiciary Committee on Monday regarding the 2014 case against Russian nationals and co-conspirators, according to several sources directly familiar with the briefing.

Rep. Ron De Santis, a Florida Republican on the House Oversight Committee, told this reporter “it’s concerning why the informants information wasn’t brought to light prior” to the decision by the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS) voted to approve the sale of the Canadian firm Uranium One to Russia. At the time, Uranium One controlled 20 percent of American uranium mining capacity at the time of the sale and needed to be approved by CFIUS, due to the national security implications of selling an asset like uranium to a foreign state.

Interviewing a main witness is “just basic due diligence in any case,” said DeSantis, referencing the then prosecutors decision to not interview Campbell.

“It’s odd and it appears there’s something they’re trying to hide,” he added.

DeSantis said the committee will continue to gather documents and information through the end of the year. The committee will also be speaking with Campbell but no formal public hearings are expected until after the start of the new year, he added.

So early next year it is. I was hoping a gift-wrapped set of leg irons would be under Hillary’s tree this year, but it’s close enough.


Feinstein Denies Whistleblower McCullough’s Claims

WASHINGTON — California Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein disputed a former intelligence inspector general’s claims that she pushed to marginalize him when he investigated the use of email by Hillary Clinton.

“I have no idea what he’s talking about,” Feinstein told The Daily Caller.

 Obama-appointed inspector general Charles McCullough III told Fox News he faced intense backlash from Clinton allies during the inquiry into the former secretary of state’s email server.

Looks like DiFi is developing a case of selective memory:

“I thought that any response to that letter would just hyper-politicize the situation,” McCullough said. “I recall even offering to resign, to the staff director. I said, ‘Tell [Feinstein] I’ll resign tonight. I’d be happy to go. I’m not going to respond to that letter. It’s just that simple.”

Feinstein, however, told TheDC she does not remember co-signing such a letter or if she requested he resign from his position.

Only problem is, the letter is public record.

The John Hancock’s of those castigating a civil servant trying to do his job.

If she ever gets pressed on it, she’ll claim it was rubber stamped by a staffer.

Not that anyone in the MSM will press her on it since Deep State organs like Newsweek are already calling it a “conspiracy theory” despite, ya know, actual, verifiable proof.

On Mueller and General Flynn

I’m sure this is on the minds of most people this morning (well, late morning here in California). It is the big Kabuki, er, I mean, news going in to the weekend.

I’ll be working today and tomorrow on one of the exclusive-to-Patreon articles I have promised to have ready. (one early in the month and one mid-month). When I post it there some time tomorrow evening, it will be dedicated to the Flynn news and some theories of where I think we’re headed henceforth.

I’m NOT worried about today’s news. So be of good cheer and always remember the big picture. The Storm will keep wreaking havoc on the Deep State.


Fbi Agent Peter Strzok Was Removed From Mueller Team Months Ago Because of Anti-Trump Texts

From Zero Hedge:

Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s top FBI investigator into ‘Russian meddling’ and Clinton emails has been removed from the probe reportedly due to the discovery of anti-Trump text messages exchanged with a colleague (whom he happened to be having an extra-marital affair with).

FBI veteran, Peter Strzok, considered “one of the most experienced and trusted FBI counterintel investigators” according to the NYT, and who was tapped by Mueller to help lead the probe of Russian meddling in last year’s presidential election, after helping lead the investigation into whether Hillary Clinton mishandled classified information on her private email account, has left Mueller’s team.

As ABC reported in August, when Strzok’s departure was first noticed, this was the first known hitch in a secretive probe that, by all public accounts, is charging full steam ahead. ABC reported that it was unclear why Strzok stepped away from Mueller’s team of nearly two dozen lawyers, investigators and administrative staffers. Strzok, who had spent much of his law enforcement career working counterintelligence cases and has been unanimously praised by government officials who spoke with ABC News, was moved the FBI’s human resources division. The move prompted many questions about why one of the FBI’s top investigators was being reassigned.

We now know the answer: anonymous sources close to the matter told The Washington Post that Strzok was removed from the investigation after the Justice Department’s inspector general began examining whether the agent had sent text messages that expressed anti-Trump political views, three people briefed on the matter told the WaPo.

In a rare, on the record statement to the media, the Special Counsel’s office effectively admitted that the head investigator into both Clinton and Trump was tainted: “Immediately upon learning of the allegations, the Special Counsel’s Office removed Peter Strzok from the investigation.

If the name Peter Strzok seems familiar to you, it is probably because he was one of the FBI agents in the room when Hillary Clinton was “interviewed.” Now that we know both Strzok and David Laufman had conflicts of interests, I’m guessing Hillary strode into that room confidently and essentially said, “Ok guys, here’s how this interview is going to transpire…”
