FBI agent Peter Strzock and his mistress, Lisa Page, both of whom faced scrutiny for their unethical and possibly illegal behavior while doing everything in their power to prevent Donald Trump from being elected president, now face even more scrutiny for text messages they allegedly sent to each other about what appears to be intent to collude with a federal surveillance judge.
Text messages obtained by the Federalist and earlier reported by Townhall’s Matt Vespa show Strzock and Page’s disturbing back and forth, in which they discussed plans for a “cocktail party” with multiple people to help “cover” their interactions with FISA judge Rudolph Contreras.
Contreras was the FISA judge who presided over former Trump national security adviser Michael Flynn’s case. You’ll remember that, before Trump became president, the Obama administration obtained a FISA order for communications from foreign actors that incidentally included Flynn.
On July 25, 2016, Page texted Strzock: “Rudy is on the [Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court]! Did you know that? Just appointed two months ago.”
Strzock replied to the text by saying, “I did. I need to get together with him.”
“[He] said he’d gotten on a month or two ago at a graduation party we were both at,” Page wrote.
Later, the two discussed arrangements in which to meet the judge to “cover for action.”
“[REDACTED] suggested a social setting with others would probably be better than a one on one meeting,” Strzok texted Page.
“I’m sorry, I’m just going to have to invite you to that cocktail party,” Page replied.
“Have to come up with some other work people cover for action,” Strzok wrote back.
Strzock questioned, “Why more?” “Six is a perfectly fine dinner party.”
These most recently uncovered text messages add more credence to the narrative that some within the FBI colluded against Trump and his campaign. Keep in mind this happened on the backdrop of Trump’s oppenent, Hillary Clinton, having been cleared of any criminal wrongdoing in her controversial email investigation, despite the fact that former FBI Director James Comey admitted she sent classified information to people without the proper clearances.
Meanwhile, the mainstream media still wants you to believe there’s nothing to see here, and that the only collusion. that occurred during the 2016 presidential campaign happened between the Trump campaign and Russia.
Here’s a novel concept, though: Maybe, just maybe, both could be true.
