More Anti-Trump Messages Reportedly Sent By Members Of Mueller's Team: "A Lot More Is Going To Come Out"

Tyler Durden's picture

Days after it emerged that former Special Counsel investigator Peter Strzok was fired from Robert Mueller's Trump-Russia probe in August for sending anti-Trump text messages to his mistress while the two were working together on the Clinton email investigation, Sara Carter of Circa told a Fox News panel that there are more anti-Trump messages sent by Mueller's team floating around.

Carter previously emerged as one of the handful of people to review documents obtained by an undercover FBI informant embedded in the Russian uranium industry. Appearing on Hannity's show Monday night, Carter was asked about rumors of more anti-Trump sentiment expressed by Mueller's team:

Sean Hannity: I’m hearing rumors all over the place Sara Carter that there are other anti-Trump text-emails out there. And we know about them.

 

Sara Carter: I think you’re hearing correctly Sean and I think a lot more is going to come out. In fact, I know a lot more is going to come out based on the sources I’ve spoken to.

The clip is below:


Tangentially, it has been widely reported that Mueller's special counsel is stacked with investigators who have donated to Obama, Clinton or other Democrat causes. As Jessica McBride reported in Heavy:

  • Andrew Weissmann: Weissmann is a Barack Obama and Democratic campaign donor, according to federal records. “Weissmann, who led the Enron investigation, previously gave $2,300 to Obama’s first presidential campaign in 2008 and $2,000 to the Democratic National Committee in 2006
  • Jeannie Rhee: donated $5,400 to Hillary Clinton in 2015 and 2016, according to FEC records. The records show she gave $2,500 each to Obama for America and Obama Victory Fund 2012 in 2011
  • Andrew Goldstein: According to Fox News, “Goldstein contributed a combined $3,300 to Obama’s campaigns in 2008 and 2012”
  • Greg Andres: FEC records show that Andres has donated at least $2,700 to Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY)
  • James Quarles: Donated thousands of dollars to the campaigns of Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama. He has also donated money recently to other Democrats, including Friends of Chuck Schumer and two other Democrats. He has a lengthy donation history dating back years. He did donate to two Republicans over the years, however.
  • Elizabeth Prelogar: A former law clerk to Justics Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Elena Kagen, gave $250 to Hillary Clinton in 2016, according to FEC records. She also gave $500 total to Obama for America and the Obama Victory Fund 2012.
  • Brandon Van Grack: gave small amounts to ActBlue, an effort to raise money for Democrats, and to a Democratic candidate for Congress in 2012. In 2008, he gave about $286 to Barack Obama.
  • Rush Atkinson: donated $200 to Clinton’s campaign in 2016.
  • Kyle Freeny: In 2012, Freeny gave $300 to Obama. In 2008, Freeny also gave $250 to Obama, FEC records show.

To review: veteran FBI agent Peter Strzok, working under James Comey, headed up both the Clinton email investigation and the Trump-Russia probe before Mueller's special counsel was created to take the reigns. Strzok - who was responsible for changing the FBI's opinion of Clinton's mishandling of classified info from "grossly negligent" to "extremely careless," - had an extramarital affair with FBI lawyer Lisa Page while the two were working on the Clinton "matter." During the investigation, Strzok sent Page anti-Trump / pro-Clinton text messages, which resulted in the dismissal of both Strzok and Page from Mueller's Trump-Russia probe. Strzok now works in the FBI's HR department.

Strzok's conduct during the Clinton email investigation and any other politically charged cases he's worked on, are now being investigated by the DOJ's Office of Personel Management the results of which, per Sara Carter of Circa, will be coming out in December and January.

Moreover, as we reported earlier today, House Speaker Paul Ryan accused the DOJ and FBI of "stonewalling" the House Intelligence Committee's wide-ranging subpoena related to the "Trump dossier," along with the fact that the FBI appears to have willfully tried to conceal the reason for Strzok's reassignment from the committee.

Meanwhile, upon being blindsided with this information and publicly embarrassed, Intel committee chairman Devin Nunes was understandably less than pleased.

In a statement issued Sunday, Nunes announced a serious escalation: His committee, he said, is preparing to hold Andrew McCabe and assistant AG Rod Rosenstein in contempt for the DOJ's failure to comply with Nunes's subpoena. He also accused the FBI and the DOJ of willfully refusing to comply with an Aug. 24 subpoena in part by refusing the committee's request "for an explanation of Peter Strzok's dismissal from the mueller probe."

By hiding from Congress, and from the American people, documented political bias by a key FBI head investigator for both the Russia collusion probe and the Clinton email investigation, the FBI and DOJ engaged in a willful attempt to thwart Congress’ constitutional oversight responsibility. This is part of a months-long pattern by the DOJ and FBI of stonewalling and obstructing this Committee’s oversight work, particularly oversight of their use of the Steele dossier. At this point, these agencies should be investigating themselves.

 

“The DOJ has now expressed—on a Saturday, just hours after the press reports on Strzok’s dismissal appeared—a sudden willingness to comply with some of the Committee’s long-standing demands. This attempted 11th-hour accommodation is neither credible nor believable, and in fact is yet another example of the DOJ’s disingenuousness and obstruction. Therefore, I have instructed House Intelligence Committee staff to begin drawing up a contempt of Congress resolution for DOJ Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and FBI Director Christopher Wray. Unless all our outstanding demands are fully met by close of business on Monday, December 4, 2017, the committee will have the opportunity to move this resolution before the end of the month."

It now appears that the FBI will have even more explaining to do as evidence of additional anti-Trump bias among members of Mueller's investigation appear to be on the horizon...

Mueller, with that fake "look how straight and serious I am am" smug face, just like Comey. These assholes are cartoon charachters.

Arrest Mueller for malicious prosecution. Arrest his whole god damn team.

Firing squad used to be the punishment for traitors.  However, in modern-day America there are so many that they'd run out of bullets.

" However, in modern-day America there are so many that they'd run out of bullets."

I doubt that. Remember the Billions of rounds they bought? It's past time for those rounds to be sold back to the People, through Govt Surplus Agency (for pennies on the dollar).

Wwe all know the rhyme..........all the kings horses and all the kings men can't put Hillary back together again.

My most important takeaway from this investigation and its direction, focus and bias:

Washington has opened the eyes of its citizens and the world.  It is sullied beyond redemption; credit Obama’s focus on personal ideals and ignoring, through ineptness, the misused and overall unsupervised government to become disorganized, dysfunctional, then used and corrupted by outsiders and now beyond control.   They all now have their safe zones where they can do and say as they please without any repercussions from any authority, even Congress and the White House, think  biased CIA/FBI employees as a start, then IRS, Justice on and on.  It gets worse from there.  It is shameful that Congress, with a mission to overwatch, assisted in the deterioration of our nation.  What do we do now? 

boattrash's picture

TH, I wish I knew the answer to your question. Detachment from the system, on as many personal levels as possible is a good start, but it still leaves the giant beast alive, which is damn near too large to die by the "thousand cuts" model.

Just for shits and grins to get a feel for the mood in this country, I've been considering building two guillotines, one as a yard ornament to put political signs on and the other to auction on EBay, just to see what it would bring...

How much evidence against Hitlary and the Clinton Crime Family did Mueller and the FBI destroy?

There is a Bloomberg article claiming Mueller subpoenaed records concerning a $300Mil loan Trump has from Deutche.

Ghost of Porky's picture

I'm betting that the deal was "Either you let Flynn off, or I release the texts/emails."

Mueller called his bluff but he wasn't bluffing. All this came out immediately following Flynn's guilty plea.

Joe Davola's picture

Good point, I just reread the article and noticed the subpoena was from a month ago or so.

Well, it was Mueller who hired these Hillary lovers in the first place.  What else was one to expect from them?

Now Mueller is subpeonaing Trumps Deutch Bank loan records that have noting to do with Russia.  This witch hunt needs to stop.

 

BarkingCat's picture

The reason they want his financial records is not for legal prosecution.

They want to know his financial weaknesses so they can attack him there and bring him down financially.

Hugh_Jorgan's picture

The saddest part is even if they were to find numerous anti-Trump communications from Mueller himself discrediting the entire witch-hunt. TPTB will be back launching a fresh politically-driven waste of taxpayer time and money AGAIN in short order. This time with a "sterling" new team ready to start over and continue to try and hobble the Trump Administration with the same banal nonsense. Meanwhile, the DOJ, FBI, and Media cast their blind eye around the innumerable crimes of loyal minions of TPTB, and our economy sinks further, and we drive ourselves deeper into untenable sovereign debt. But that is nothing important... LOOK!... BITCOIN!!! WOW! THE DOW IS AT 30,000!!!

It should be clear to everyone by now that Obama filled every position in government with political operatives. Not dedicated civil servants. Not people who deal fairly. Just tools for the bankers.

lew1024's picture

Tools of the CIA. Obama was CIA.

Yes, the CIA is intertwined with the financial oligarchy, but subverting governments and elements of government is the CIA's job.

Contempt of Congress - big whoop, Hillary's people ignored subpoenas from congress about classified document handling.

Publicus_Reanimated's picture

There is a difference.  DOJ has the option of not acting on a contempt of Congress accusation, so Obama's DOJ simply didn't act.  Congress can't lock anybody up on its own authority to the best of my knowledge.

If Mueller & team had to pay for this shit-show with their own $$$, rather than stolen tax $$$, this "investigation" would've lasted 36 hours.

It even more true in the case of the Bundy ranch family. FFS

Why is "best bud" Mueller still heading up this investigation to avenge Comey's firing and give cover to his own involvement in UraniumOne that benefitted Killary to the tune of over $100+ million from the russians?

The FBI in the 1960s and 70s was top notch, or as top notch as one can expect.

 

Obama destroyed the agency and its reputation. They are Weasels and should be disbanded and replaced by American Patriots.

i would prefer to simply disband all the agencies. and, as long as i'm dreaming here, the rest of the fucking thing too. burn it all to the ground and salt the earth.

This Mueller "Dream Team" was NEVER there to investigate Trump Russia collusion, they were there to cover up and suppress all that their dirty hands had been involved in during the last 15-20 years.

Its obvious as the stink emanating from Hillarys demented demon puss-filled orifices.

Why is Rosenstein still around? And frankly, why can't POTUS instruct the FBI to start complying? If they continue to obstruct and refuse, start firing the top echelon until you find a guy who likes his job more than his politics?
