Strzok to Page on Trump Investigation: "There's No Big There There"

Hat tip The Hill

"There's no big there there."

On May 19, 2017, two days after Robert Mueller was named special counsel by Deputy Attorney  General Rod Rosenstein, FBI agent Peter Strzok and his paramour, FBI lawyer Lisa Page exchanged texts regarding the Trump investigation, in which Strzok wrote, "There's no big there there". Last week, Page met with lawmakers in Congress behind closed door and according to John Solomon of the Hill confirmed that the words meant that there was no real basis for the Trump investigation.

"This month, they finally got the chance to ask. Strzok declined to say — but Page, during a closed-door interview with lawmakers, confirmed in the most pained and contorted way that the message in fact referred to the quality of the Russia case, according to multiple eyewitnesses."

This confirms that there is  stain on the FBI and every agent in the field knows it. To date, there is zero credible evidence to implicate Donald Trump and/or his campaign in colluding with the Russians in their attempts to meddle in our election. Yet they used an unverified Russian dossier supplied by a foreign agent hired, in effect, by the DNC and the Clinton campaign through Fusion GPS to obtain a FISA wiretap warrant against an American citizen, Carter Page, who was at the time, working for the Trump campaign. Couple that with all the derogatory remarks about Trump using FBI communications, and what we have is this:

"The guy is a douchebag, and we'll use this Russian dossier as our insurance policy to make sure he never gets elected. At the same time, we'll take care of the Clinton matter."

I am paraphrasing, of course.

Add to what you shared, is the release of the FISA application docs to Judicial Watch and others. The Docs reveal the use of the Hillary/DNC paid for, Steele Russian dossier as the prime piece for the FISA warrant. No mention that Hillary paid for the Doc. Strzok was a big part of this delivery of the FISA docs for the purpose of obtaining the FISA warrant. So, there is a lot of THERE, there.
