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...

This article tells nothing new... we all knew Mueller's team was anti-Trump. As for anti trump messages, all this says is that more are likely.

Nobody will go to jail.  Legal technicalities will save all those directly involved.  Congress needs time to disassociate themselves through bribery and Arkancides before anything will be released to the public.  This is coming close to requiring a devistating false-flag to shift people's attention away until congress can sweep it all under the rug.

Dunno about that.  Trump is gonna have major political capital to deploy.  I doubt he'll let off the gas pedal.

Some truths here: Mueller already knew the FBI’s Peter Strzok didn’t like President Donald Trump yet still hired him, according to FBI and DOJ sources.

But that has little to do with why Strzok was expelled from the Special Counsel’s team.

Embattled FBI Section Chief Strzok has been labeled in recent days as Trump-hating gigolo who had a salacious sexual affair with a married FBI lawyer and for those reasons he could no longer serve on the investigative team of U.S. Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

Yet that, again, has little to do with the real reasons Mueller sacked FBI’s Strzok, a high ranking section chief, sources in the FBI and DOJ said.

Mueller suspected Strzok of leaking classified details about his team’s FBI raid on Paul Manafort’s house, a story the Washington Post first printed in August, several FBI and DOJ sources confirm.

The fact Rosenstein appointed Mueller so quick tells you Rod isn't on The Don's team. Wray and Sessions are holding the cards. When will they play them? We'll see.

Gaining access to The Don's financial records is not good for DJT.

You would have to been dumber than dirt to have any confidence in the IRS,FBI,CIA,or Justice Departments at this time. 


What you know or should is the last president out the door (and the bastid was useless at best) and hid Cabal did anything they could to create problems for the next President. You can't get any fuking lower. Democrats are the most uselss MFers on the planet! If not for niggers and spics voting for them they couldn't win a GD cake walk.

Fucking retarded leftists keep getting slapped down. It is the best entertainment I've had since I quit watch predictive programming years ago. I hope you cock gobbling communists keep frothing at the mouth with your impotent rage. We give you the rope and you hang yourselves. I bet money that these leftist con jobs that are still on the Russia Russia Russia distraction do not get any punishment. It would be just another favor unmentioned.

That way the the ignorant leftist yuppy larvae do not have to suicide themselves against the true Americans or the false police state. That would just be another act of kindness that would not even be considered by their brainwashed minds. A whole generation ruined by those who are supposed to enrich their minds. What an exciting time to be living in! I hope I live long enough to see the outcome of this. WHAT A JOKE, THE GRAND PINNACLE OF HUMANITY!

And the guys who investigated Hitlery, did they also get fired for donating to Rep candidates? Dual standards much? We're a democracy. Our system needs to be able to withstand a normal investigation of those of us who are in power. Our country survived Nixon's investigation, Clinton I (1990s) and Clinton II (2010s). The USA is strong enough to handle this, I laugh at the idiots in the comment section who argue Mueller is the harbinger of the apocalypse. This is business as usual. Trump will come out with flying colors and win 2020.

In an empire of lies; the truth is treason.

America is not a democracy, it's a Constitutional Republic.
Once you fully understand what that means, everything falls into place.

The word "democracy" is not found in any of the founding documents: not in The Declaration of Independence, not in The Bill of Rights, not in The Constitution. The lights are starting to shine on the cockroaches!!!  Now it's time to destroy them!

They were investigating the opposition campaign during an election based on evidence bought and paid for by the party with which they politically sympathized.

That's not Democracy, it is Stalinism attempting to smother Democracy.

Ronald Reagan, one of the best US presidents, once fired all air-traffic controllers, after they attempted to humiliate him. The Commie cockroaches yelled back then "he must be impeached, white supremacist, fascist, etc.", as the psychopaths always do.

FBI is now playing the same music. Time to whack the entire DC den of cockroaches into oblivion, and then create a brand-new agency in its place. What it needs to be, we can discuss later. But first, the clean up.

gcjohns1971's picture

A couple questions:

Why are the leadership of DOJ and/or FBI, who did not successfully choose unbiased investigators, and who have "stonewalled" at least two of three branches of government, including the one from which they draw their authority, be trusted to select unbiased investigators to investigate themselves?

How could any report authored there be trusted?

Why are the previously mentioned authorized to subpoena private information without any evidence that a crime has been committed or probable cause to suspect that the person's information they wish to review is likely to contain evidence to a crime that they has not yet been defined.

How is any of the above compatible with Constitutional projections, and limitations on government power, in the bill of rights?

Was this not the very subject of the American Revolution? Did not the colonists reject the authority Parliament gave to their colonial officers in the Stamp Act to search and seize any and all property whether or not any crime had been committed, and whether or not there was reason to suspect the person searched, and/or the property seized contained any evidence of a crime?

Is not such a general search, by its very nature, a license to extort, steal, and blackmail with information unrelated to any crime?

Aren't such fishing expeditions supposed to be illegal in the US?

Always good to check on the current thoughts of the guy whose lips are surgically attached to James Comey's posterior.  That would be Sick Sock Benjamin Wittes, the tick tock tweeter.  Benjamin is not a trained lawyer, but he plays one in his career.  Unsurprisingly, he is trying to advance the "obstruction of justice" narrative.  Wittes has not yet weighed in the revelation of the compromised nature of Mueller's investigation, but should he do so, it will be interesting to see the new shapes of pretzels he invents.

This is rich.  Now the WaPo is saying we need a special counsel to investigate the DOJ and the FBI.

Welcome to the Department of no shit, Sherlock.

This whole thing is rancid from top to bottom and starts with the name HiLIARy.  These minions are so entrenched and afraid of her and Bill that they do anything she tells them to do.

No prosecution without intent for what amounts to espionage and violating National Security policy, a charge that would have you, me - possibly Jesus Christ locked up for the rest of our lives in a Supermax.  

Again, is there a need for a special counsel?  Yes, again, no shit.  They need to re-investigate some old things too, like James Comedy of Errors and Mueller's handling of HiLIARy being indicted, investigated and incarcerated do not pass go, do not collect $25 million from Saudi Arabia.

When you add up all those criminals involved in Pizza-gate, Paedo-gate, Paedowood etc. Then add up all those criminals in the CIA, FBI, etc... There just isn't enough room in prisons for them all.

Then when you consider that, if left alive, their friends will do almost anything to get this scum out, including fixing an election so that "the new president" will pardon them.

Then the mess will start all over again.


I'm afraid there will need to be a "Final Solution", and I think we all know what that means.

If you find a roach in a bowl of spaghetti, you don't start looking for more roaches. You throw the bowl out.

AT WHAT POINT can TRUMP's team start charging guys like Mueller for TREASON?

General Fuster Cluck's picture

There is a possibility Mueller is working for Trump. Or at least is working for the Good of the Republic (which is the same thing in my veiw.) Notice that the stuff he came up with so far seems to be genuinely lame. Could the whole Mueller thing be the distraction from what is really going on in Justice? Could it be a place to put the Obama left behinds and throw them a juicy bone to chew on so that they are out of the loop now at FBI, DOJ?

Village-idiot's picture

I've also had that feeling too.

Either that or Mueller isn't quite as smart as he thinks he is, he's being played by Trump who is evidently a lot smarter than Mueller gives him credit for being.
