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...

Whatever happened to the Limerick King?

I think everybody knows the Meuller SC was a setup pre planned, and a corrupt witch hunt.

Rosenstein may find himself in trouble at the end of the day.

SharkBit's picture

Trump said this was a Witch Hunt and it turns out, he was correct.  FBI totally corrupted.

The shit show that is Russia, Russia, Russia needs to come to an end.  Quick Smart.  Then let the real criminal investigations begin with Hillary and Clinton Crime Family.

Ajax-1's picture

ooooo scary, "Contempt of Congress". If you recall, Eric Holder and Lois Lerner were found to be in "Contempt of Congress". Did they go to Jail? Did they lose their jobs? Were they fined? Did they lose their pension? Nope, none of that.  The penalty/ramifications were Nada, Zip, Zilch. At worst, perhaps a dirty look from the Speaker of the House. Why would anyone honor a Congressional subpoena?

A demonstration for the proles.  The people, aka the House of Representatives, are powerless to do anything about anything of import.  They simply meddle in the affairs of the Bourgeoisie, get thier hands slapped like a servile housewife, then sit down and shut up.

Fucking banana republic can't even conduct an investigation. These people are so used to operating lawlessly with impunity they don't ever even think about getting caught

Multiple White House sources have told reporters that the Trump administration has been negotiating with Erik Prince (founder of the war-crimes plagued mercenary firm Blackwater; brother to pyramid-scheme billionaire/Education Secretary Betsy Devos) and ex-CIA operative John R. Maguire to assemble a private army of deniable, off-the-books spy/mercenaries who could target Trump's "deep state" political enemies in the USA, and kidnap and render similar figures overseas.
All of these FBI bullshit is produced by Trump affiliates to discredit Meuller, there is team of people working for Trump in Florida to help him fight the Russian investigation,

ZIRPY's picture

How did Trump make Strzok write that text?  How did he make those team members donate to democrats?  How is Trump making them refuse to comply with the subpoena?

A politicized FBI is a dangerous thing.  The fact that Washington, DC votes 95% for one party is also a dangerous thing.

Is there even one Administrative Agency that hasn't been politicized? Even the Defense Department appears to be dysfunctional.

The irony of it all is that the main objective of winning the Presidency is so the President can appoint partisan Supreme Court Justices.  The empire died a long time ago when Supreme Court Justices decided to be a part of the Executive and Legislative branches of the government.  They all want to be loved in DC.

The real decline of America began under billy the rapist. He screwed a lot of women in the oval office, and America

insanelysane's picture

Disagree.  The decline began when the deep state managed to murder JFK and RFK for an old fashioned regime change.  The sheeple bought it and the deep state has been unstoppable ever since.

Quinvarius's picture

This whole investigation is based on bullshit and has morphed into nothing less than a political coup attempt.  Sessions did not totally recuse himself from his job.  He needs to clean up his GD house.

Just isn't going to happen.  Sessions is there to sleep.

Imagine being the type of person who would vote for a Democrat in '18 after the bullshit these cock bags have pulled since inauguration and not being a dumb nigger or wetback.

It's beginning to look like the Mueller investigation was more like a real orgy of sex, self-inflated egos and money among the angry biased wannabe deep state intelligence community Democrat operatives in the DC Swamp than any real investigation.

The Russians are going to make mincemeat of the political fools performing our intelligence collection and counter-intelligence efforts for the next 30 years.

This will make the historic UK inteligence losses of the last century look like insignificant amateurish losses when compared how history will judge our intelligence community.

The entire investigation is tainted and off the rails. No Russian collusion, but that won’t stop them from tearing people’s lives apart looking for whatever they can find. What a disgusting partisan witch hunt.

I wanna see the actual words in these texts. Let America see the actual evidence. 

ChiangMaiXPat's picture

For me the “missing link” has always been Rosenstein, the assistant DA. He folded & pulled the trigger quite fast on “principle” with no media backlash and little fanfare. The entire situation now looks like a set up with what we know about Rosenstein’s involvement in Uranium One. It all seems staged, maybe even with Trump’s acknowledgment. I know the theory sounds Coo Coo for Coconuts but it seems the NWO always plays 4d chess. Seems like a way to present a hamstrung President and administration, just a thought.

FoggyWorld's picture

But I believe Trump could order Sessions to fire Rosenstein.  Worst case, he could be assigned to Barrow, Alaska and given an overpaid desk job to watch those Russians, Russians, Russians up close.

Thom Paine's picture

Look forward to the day when Meuller and Comey share the same prison cell, and get to arse fuck each other for 20 years.


But with Rosenstein and Sessions - Meuller, Comey, Clintons can do whatever they like.  They are an example of the extreme sickness the US has reached, where even the premier Investigative and Law enforcement body of the USA is totally and systemically corrupt beyond repair.

"Trump is dumb"

Oh, Really?

Self-made billionaire from the most competitive city on the planet.

Wharton school graduate

Plays the media like the presstitutes they are.

Ran for Pres against a dozen other people and won. 

Whether you agree with him or not...the man ain't dumb!

Pretty much the opposite.

I am reading Ed Klein's book All Out War. The best book yet on how Trump won, Hellary lost and how the Deep State, presstitutes and snowflakes are trying to oust Trump.

Trump was warned if he fired Sessions the Republicans wouldn't vote for any successor Trump put forward.

Trump is all alone

FoggyWorld's picture

If the Republicans took that route, Trump could place an interim AG in that spot and it would be a person of Trump's chosing.

Anunnaki's picture

Why aren't the DNC and Hellary in jail for not declaring the payment to GPS Fusion for the bogus Steele Dossier on their election expenditure reports. The FEC usually sends people to jail for that type of "oversight"
