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...

veteran FBI agent Peter Strzok, working under James Comey, headed up both the Clinton email investigation...

If Peter headed up the Clinton email investigation, than he's the guy at FBI who got his hands on Hillary's server, right?

Hey, Peter, is it safe?  Hillary must have thought so...

I'm sure the server was full of incriminating Benghazi emails...But, but...nothing nothing nothing came of it, right Trey Gowdy?

Politico calls the FBI getting Hillary's server a NIGHTMARE.  What a joke, she handed it over to Peter Strzok.  Ohhh, scary.  


Hillary's FBI nightmare

The FBI has already rebuffed one judge's effort to obtain messages the agency has recovered from Clinton's server, prompting a stinging attack from Iowa Sen. Chuck Grassley, the Republican chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee.

On Wednesday, key members of Capitol Hill expressed reluctance to dive in after a report surfaced that the FBI has successfully retrieved messages left on Clinton's server. The FBI declined to confirm the Bloomberg report Wednesday.


House Benghazi Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy — a former federal prosecutor — made clear through a spokesman that he has no intention to cross swords with the FBI.

"Chairman Gowdy has not asked the FBI about its investigation into Secretary Clinton's unusual and unprecedented email arrangement, nor has the Bureau offered a briefing to the committee," Benghazi panel spokesman Jamal Ware said. 

"The chairman believes the FBI is the nation's premier law enforcement agency and he is not willing to comment on its ongoing investigation into the mishandling of classified information in connection with Secretary Clinton's server."

Gowdy continues to express his confidence in Mueller.  Sort of says it all.

It's almost 2018, don't democrats have to get busy trying to win elections? (HINT: Mueller's little gestapo act does NOT help the cause).

Mueller should have had the instincts to stay away from this one. EVERYONE who does heavy lifting for HRC gets stabbed in the back and thrown under the bus. This will not end well for him or his boyfriend Comey, or his brutal dominatrix Hillary.....

Whatever Trump has to do - as long as it legal and short term - ought to be considered because all of these alphabet agencies seem to be very compromised.

The swamp is full of Clinton cronies.

They want Trump impeached to install Clinton.


Mueller is the KING of cover ups.

Clinton will never be installed or elected to anything at all.  We would get Pence who not one of us really voted for.

I'd actually rather let the investigation continue so as to let the inherent weakness of the "case" prominently, completely, and conclusively implode.  Then, go after the liars who fed shit to the Congress and the public, and turn to the malignant crooks in the prior administrations and in the existing bureaucracy

FoggyWorld's picture

On one level that makes sense but Mueller will drag this out to infinity and while he is doing that grid lock becomes the way this nation runs.

It really has to stop.

“Rebellion to tyranny is obedience to God.”-ThomasJefferson's picture

Here's the bottom line...

-Hillary was a guarantee to be POTUS.

-She had no chance of losing.

-They would have fixed more fraudulent votes in Pennsylvania, Ohio, Michigan, and Wisconsin had the establishment had concern.

-Hillary, Bill, and Chelsea Clinton are criminals on multiple counts, i.e., foundation fraud, obstruction of justice, unsecured classified emails, rape, perjury, etc.

_In fact, they're so dirty, they could not govern effectively.

-Hillary would have been subject to blackmail, extortion, and political opportunists, unlike any other POTUS. 

-Comey and Mueller are dirty.

-Both former FBI Directors, understand where, exactly, each and every body is buried, in regard to the Clinton crime family.

-Comey and Mueller, together believed they would be the de facto leaders of the nation, via the deep state apparatus, that's been put in place for the past 30 years.


-Donald Trump wins in a electoral landslide.

-Popular vote skewed due to voter fraud throughout nation, but especially California, and all urban areas.

-Comey and Mueller, along with their deep stae apparatus, are working overtime to diminish Trump both pololitically and criminally.

-They're having a difficult time.

-If Trump stays in office, the facts will get out that the corporate fake news, republican establishment, democrat establishment, DOJ, FBI, IRS, court system, are compromised and corrupted far worse than even the most cynical American could imagine.


Now is the time for honest men and women to come forward from these various agencies and positions, and explain to the American people just how corrupt and criminal the behavior that is going on, right under our noses.

sacredfire's picture

Son, I think you are spot on! You hit the nail on the head but very few people give a fuck.

GoingBig's picture

Here is the difficult thing you seem to be overlooking

1) If the Russians wanted Trump, and by all accounts they did, they provided huge social media influence and potentially other influence to sway the election.

2) IF Trump knowingly accepted help from the Russians then this is a huge deal.  This isn't about whether your guy got elected or not. It is about a foreign power changing the course of our democratic republic.

3) If you don't like the news you call it "Fake". Sounds like a preschooler.

4) Comey and Mueller are dirty. Do you forget that Comey's last minute opening of the investigation of Hillary's email caused a huge swing in votes?

5) Clinton Crime Family? you are sounding like a complete idiot. Clinton as SoS was an idiot. Having classified data is a crime, but saying they had people killed, etc is just pubescent fantasy on your part and anyone stupid enough to believe in that crap.


All of you conspiracy people are completely whacked. Conspiracies with more than 2 people NEVER hold up. EVER. You can go way back and this is a truism. But that doesn't play well to your fantasy...


Where have all the thinking people gone.... What happened to ZH? or should I say Breitbart   Lol.

FoggyWorld's picture

Why would the Russians have wanted Trump when they already knew they could always pay-to-play with Clinton?   They still own 20% of the US uranium stash.

Makes no sense that they would have preferred Trump who is a billionaire and not in need of selling his soul to any country.

GoingBig's picture

if you knew anything at all about uranium, you would know that this story is bullshit.

You talk out of your ass.

If you wish people to believe you have knowledge, you're swinging and missing.

My advice to you is to read more and comment less.

I say this only to morons.

Lord Raglan's picture

Sir, how did Russia influence the election more than say Israel or Saudi Arabia, the latter of whom gave the Clinton Foundation $25 million during the campaign?  Where's the beef?  Did the Russians hack voting machines? Did they count the votes?  After a year, you people have nothing on Russia.  It is only after one finds illegal activity on the part of Russia that one investigates who allegedly "collaborated" with them in that regard.  You libs are completely irrational and incapable of looking at this objectively, professionally.  

GoingBig's picture

No, they took out 10s of millions in facebook ads. Did false stories about clinton that I still see today, etc.  

Everyone knows this. It has been widely reported by even, gasp, FoX.


Dude, Im no lib but I do use reason.

RussianSniper's picture

Fake news!

Zuck himself, tried to implicate the Russia collusion narrative.

He mentioned $100 thousand US was spent on facebook ad purchases by "Russia".

Where did you come up with tens of millions, clown?

cheech_wizard's picture

Practice stupidity in front of a mirror, not in a public forum.

Russian spending on Facebook:

Facebook had previously announcedthat $100,000 was spent on Facebook ads from June 2015 to May 2017 by Russian-linked disinformation sources, while an additional $50,000 was spent by Russians that signals indicate weren’t or were only weakly connected to an organized disinformation campaign.

Twitter in 2016 - $274K.

There are other instances...

Here's the point.

You didn't see anyone turn down the money, did they? So much for any reasoning skill you proclaim you might possess.

Why does he refuse to do that?  Next BIG question:

Why does Trump refuse to replace him?

just the tip's picture

the only reason i can come up with, and it's not a very good one, is, if he fires sessions, aside from the firestorm that would cause, who ever trump nominates, will not get a hearing until after the 2018 mid-terms.  if then.  and the hell the nominee will have to go through.  and until the nominee is confirmed, rosenstein will be acting AG.  unless trump fires him also.  also keep in mind sessions will not fire rosenstein.

whether or not you are a trump supporter, the one certainty out of all this is, sessions played trump.  he attached himself early and played the part.  whoever in the deep state, told sessions to do that, has gotten a big promotion.

Since Strzok was having sex with a coworker the Kraken of Political Correctness should also be loosened on the FBI love nest. Libturd are best exterminated with their own poison.

And so let's say Rosenstein and Wray are found in contempt...then what? Holder was found in contempt while he was AG and he's still revered today.
