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

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...

I get the distinct feeling that God is having a hand in all this.

It's all falling into place, like it's all planned.

Here's a guy says Obama is going down.  Check out James Brower's twitter account, linked below.  Specifically, check out his retweet of insider 'name redacted's tweet, which is a series of 50 tweets forming a sort of twitter thread on Obama's efforts to defeat candidate Trump and then to remove President Trump.  Pretty damned interesting...

Obama and Susan Rice should be in jail for wiretapping Trump on behalf of Hellary and the corrupt Dems who knew they were going to lose bigly unless they could find a knockout blow.

Looks like Trump is running a train on Mueller people...Just read that John Roberts of FOX is reporting the Fake News reports on Trump’s bank records being subpoenaed are not true..I should add Sara Carter gets inside information directly from Trump team..She is never wrong it appears from my reading...

If news of the bank records subpoena is fake, I wonder if this was a trap set to catch leakers?

The most disturbing thing in all of this is just how blatant and open the corruption has become in our government.  They used to at least attempt to cover it up, but now the criminality and hatred for America is right in our faces

All credit to the well-funded Obama and Clinton gangs, and their enablers in the media.

At least Presidents Obama and Bush have had the decency to shut the hell up and go away.  You can't get HiLIARy to shut up and quit blaming everything and everyone for her failures.

We'll likely have to wait until Her and Bill are in the grave before someone speaks up and says, "Oh yeah, they were corrupt and everybody knew it, but it's too late to do anything about it now."

Maybe a false lead and a snare to catch leakers?

J. Edgar Hoover would be proud of Mueller.


1. Find the dirt

2. If dirt can't be found make the dirt

3. Save the dirt until needed.


Hoover survived a slew of administrations with this style. Hoover was dirtiest of the dirty.

Mueller gets caught filling his team with a bunch of ringers.

Is it possible that Trump actually played the board into this position intentionally to keep MSM focused on, and his worst FBI DOJ enemies penned up in, this one corral?

What's the big news that Stzrok or others too sent anti-Trump tweets, emails, etc.  It was obvious they were against Trump from what we knew already.  Why is this somehow more important.  Why was Stzrok allowed to stay until this came out -- or was the reason he was removed actually something different we don't know yet?

At this point mueller is compromised and politicized. Despite his recusal Sessions should fire Mueller and bring this partisan carnival act to a end.    

Ned Zeppelin's picture

How and why is Rosenstein still on the playing field? Sessions needs to go.

What Trump is doing is beginning to make sense.

"Keep your friends close; keep your enemies closer."

Trump is allowing this fiasco, led by Mueller, to continue for a very good reason.

The Democrats have been caught in their own trap!

I'm going to have to go out for some more popcorn, 'cos this show is far from over. The plot is better than anything that Hollywood or the TV networks could have ever written and produced.


It seems the Deep-State have seriously underestimated how smart Trump is.
