Text Messages Show Anti-Trump Bias in the FBI, but That’s Not All

What happened? 

Two FBI agents who were part of the probe into the Trump campaign’s potential ties to Russia exchanged text messages calling President Donald Trump an “idiot” while he was running.

One of the agents is Peter Strzok, who was removed from the investigation in July by Special Counsel Robert Mueller; the second is Lisa Page, whose assignment to Mueller’s office had already ended.

Copies of the text messages have been released to the press. In some of the relevant texts, Strzok and Page mocked Trump and praised Hillary Clinton during the 2016 election.

“God trump is a loathsome human….omg he’s an idiot,” Page said.

Glenn’s take: 

Glenn talked about the need to investigate not only the Trump campaign’s alleged collusion with Russia and the Clintons’ involvement in the Uranium Onedeal, but also the Department of Justice and the FBI themselves. The texts between two FBI agents show more than bias; Strzok and Page also seem to be talking about ways to cover up their support for Clinton while working for the FBI.

“Something is wrong in the DOJ and in the FBI,” Glenn said.

GLENN: Shady meetings in high-level offices, off the books burner phones to hide communications, and whispers of a coup. These plot lines sound like they’re ripped straight out of a late night ID channel espionage series: “Case Files of the KGB”... or something like that. In reality, everything I just described was going inside the hallowed halls of the FBI.

It was reported last week that the former second-in-command of counterintelligence at the FBI had been relieved from the Muller investigation due to a series of anti-Trump text messages. At first - to be honest - this seemed kind of eye roll worthy. I mean, who hasn’t sent a few ant-Trump text messages? Even if you’re fully in the President’s corner - come on - I KNOW you’ve sent at least ONE text saying, “crap I wish he wouldn’t have tweeted that.” That’s really all I was expecting to see here.

On Tuesday night, 375 of the 10,000 text messages were released to the press. Many of them, as expected, were just kind of stupid. Sure there’s a clear disdain for Trump and admiration for Hillary Clinton, but there’s a big difference in having a political opinion versus showing bias in an investigation. That was the vibe Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein was giving to Congress yesterday and that’s primarily how the mainstream media is reporting it.

So that’s that… well, not quite. I kept scanning through the meaningless texts until I came across this one. It says quote:

“So look, you say we text on that phone when we talk about Hillary because it can’t be traced…”

Ok, that sounded a little bad. What could they possibly be discussing about Hillary that requires them to hide their communications? Maybe the fact that this FBI agent was the one that doctored Comey’s Clinton statement to help her avoid indictment? I mean I’m just guessing here… let’s read on.

Ok, there’s an “Eff Trump”... yadda yadda yadda… “Congrats on a woman nominated for President”... wait, what’s this:

“I want to believe the path you threw out for consideration in Andy’s office - that there’s no way Trump gets elected - but I’m afraid we can’t take that risk. It’ like an insurance policy in the unlikely event you die before you’re 40.”

Is that what I think it is, because it sounds an awful lot like the second-in-command of counterintelligence - who was working on both the Clinton investigation AND the Trump/Russia investigation - was making plans with a colleague to undermine Donald Trump. Oh yeah, and the office referenced in the text - “Andy’s” - was likely Deputy Director Andrew McCabe’s.

I’m sorry, but this isn’t a case of a little harmless “political preference”, this sounds like bias with the intent to conspire against a then-presidential candidate. How far did this plot go? At this point we need a Special Counsel… to investigate the Special Counsel.

Former Obama admin. Secretary says we need a 'truth commission' to 'erase Trump's lies'

The far-left gets scarier each day. Now, former Obama administration Secretary of Labor, Robert Reich, is advocating for the establishment of a "Truth and Reconciliation Commission" once President Trump leaves office. He tweeted that the commission would "erase Trump's lies, comfort those who have been harmed by his hatefulness, and name every official, politician, executive, and media mogul whose greed and cowardice enabled this catastrophe." Glenn describes how similar models have been used in places like Serbia and Rwanda, and it never ends well for the minority party. In fact, Glenn says, an idea like this one can be used to further surveil and control the citizens who disagree.

How our 'free' press is censoring the truth like NEVER BEFORE

The New York Post released last week a report that COULD put an end to the Joe Biden campaign. It's too bad the NY Post is unable to share the story — which all centers on information found on the alleged Hunter Biden laptop mysteriously left at a computer repair store — with the world on social media. But the publication has been LOCKED from sharing stories on Twitter for over four days now. And it's not just the Post. Glenn describes how MSNBC's Chuck Todd blatantly disregarded fact during an interview with Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer, how the Washington Post failed to correct the same claims, and how leaders at Facebook have direct ties to Joe Biden. Our "free" press continues to censor the truth and it becomes more and more frightening each day.

How Bill O'Reilly Would've Handled the Hunter Biden Story | Ep 86

The king of "No Spin" and bestselling author of "Killing Crazy Horse," Bill O'Reilly, dishes with Glenn about his time at Fox News. He explains why he believes he got labeled as "being difficult to work with," what happened when he asked executives if he could moderate a presidential debate, and what the first words he ever said to Glenn were (hint: It was typical O'Reilly). He also reveals how he would've handled the Hunter Biden email story if he were the editor of the New York Post, gives his predictions for the final debate (if it even happens), and imagines what Donald Trump will do if he doesn't win a second term. "He ain't gonna get down to Dallas and paint," O'Reilly says. "He'll probably buy the L.A. Lakers and fire LeBron James!"
