Nunes: Strzok/Page “Insurance Policy” Referred to Obtaining FISA Warrant

Congressman Devin Nunes (R-CA) claims that the infamous “insurance policy” text message between FBI lovers Peter Strzok and Lisa Page referred to their ability to obtain a FISA warrant to spy on the Trump campaign.

The August 2016 text message from Strzok to Page stated, “I want to believe the path you threw out for consideration in Andy’s office — that there’s no way he gets elected — but I’m afraid we can’t take that risk. It’s like an insurance policy in the unlikely event you die before you’re 40.”

Speaking to Fox News’ Sean Hannity last night, Nunes said, “We believe that ‘insurance policy’ is not just about investigating the Trump campaign. We believe it’s to ensure that they were able to get the FISA warrant on Carter Page so they could go in and look at the emails in the campaign.”

Nunes also told Hannity that the FBI was aware of the problems pertaining to the reliability of the infamous Steele dossier and knew it was opposition research for the Clinton campaign.

“These really were the perverted fantasies of [Fusion GPS Founder] Glenn Simpson working with the Clinton campaign to say ‘What can we draw up here that we can spread out lies to the American people, that we can feed into the FBI and – lo and behold – let’s get an investigation going into the Trump campaign.’ That’s really what happened here,” Nunes said.

In July of 2018, Page explained to lawmakers in her closed-door testimony that the “insurance policy” referred to the fact that the FBI’s investigation into Trump-Russia collusion would become more significant if he were to be elected president.

“If he is not elected, then, to the extent that the Russians were colluding with members of his team, we’re still going to investigate that even without him being President, because any time the Russians do anything with a US person, we care, and it’s very serious to us,” Page said.
“But if he becomes President, that totally changes the game because now he is the President of the United States,” she continued. “He’s going to immediately start receiving classified briefings. He’s going to be exposed to the most sensitive secrets imaginable. And if there is somebody on his team who wittingly or unwittingly is working with the Russians, that is super serious.”

Strzok Texts Reveal He Believed CIA “Leaking Like Mad”

Newly released text messages reveal disgraced former FBI agent Peter Strzok appears to have believed that the CIA was leaking to the media about the Trump campaign and alleged Russia collusion.

The Washington Examiner reports that Senators Ron Johnson (R-WI) and Chuck Grassley (R-IA) sent a letter to intelligence community Inspector General Michael Atkinson on Monday urging him to look into Strzok’s December 2016 text message to his FBI lover, Lisa Page where he states, “Think our sisters have begun leaking like mad. … They’re kicking it into overdrive.”

The two senators say the text message reveals the FBI’s “apparent awareness of leaks by other agencies or entities to the media.”

Grassley and Johnson also point out an April 2017 email from Strzok to his FBI colleagues in which he states he believes the CIA was involved in the Trump-Russia investigation earlier than initially thought, and that the agency might be responsible for the “seemingly incorrect leads” members of the media had.

“I’m beginning to think the agency got info a lot earlier than we thought and hasn’t shared it completely with us,” Strzok said. “Might explain all these weird / seemingly incorrect leads all these media folks have. Would also highlight agency as source of some of the leaks.”

The senators wrote, “These texts and emails raise a number of serious questions and concerns. For example, who are the “sisters” and what does it mean to say that the “sisters have [been] leaking like mad”? What are they worried about and what are they kicking into “overdrive”? Which “agency” is he referring to and why does Strzok believe the referenced news article “highlights that “agency as [a] source of some of the leaks”?

New Transcript: Strzok/Page Text Messages “Freaked Out” Top FBI Lawyer

Top FBI Lawyer James Baker told Congress that reading just “a couple” of text messages between FBI lovers Peter Strzok and Lisa Page “freaked” him out, according to CNSNews.

A newly released transcript of Baker’s October, 2018 testimony reveals the former top bureau lawyer said messages between the two lovers “worried” him and that he was concerned whether some decisions in the Clinton email investigation may have been “driven by political bias.”

Strzok–as CNSNews points out–was the lead counterintelligence investigator in both the Clinton email investigation and the Trump-Russia investigation and Page was an FBI attorney assigned to work with Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe. The two lovers exchanged thousands of text messages which included pro-Clinton, anti-Trump rhetoric.

Baker told Congress, “So I only read like a couple [Strzok/Page text messages], literally a couple. But that was enough for me to hear, that it freaked me out. And I was worried and I thought we need to get on top of this quickly.”

In the testimony, a Republican staffer asked Baker, “[I]t’s my understanding you played a very unique role early on with requesting that an inspection be done of the Midyear [Clinton email investigation] case once these texts became known.”

Baker replied:

So, yes, when I heard about these texts, I only read a few of them. They were described to me. And I immediately became quite alarmed. And so my thinking was, well, from a — from the — okay. I don’t know what — I know that — I knew that the inspector general was looking at them. I knew that they would address them. And so I knew that there was a process in place.

So what I was concerned about is whether — whether any decisions had been taken — or not taken — in the Midyear case that were driven by political bias of any sort. I was quite worried about that. And I wanted to make sure that we as an institution, the Bureau as an institution, got on top that extremely quickly.

And so I suggested to the leadership that we put together some type of team — I didn’t exactly know how to do that, but I consulted with other folks — to basically do a review of the case and have an independent group of people come in and look at and assess whether any decisions were made that looked unusual, that looked like they were driven by bias, decisions made, actions taken, or things not done.

That’s what I was also worried about, the omissions, right? So we talked about that, and there was an agreement to do that, and eventually it was set up and it was done.

At the outset I was also quite worried, knowing full well that the inspector general’s office was doing an investigation, that I didn’t want to mess up anything that they were doing. And so we worked in coordination with the inspector general. I actually spoke to him and made sure that he knew what we were doing — and his staff — knew what we were doing, why we wanted to do it, to make sure that it was okay with him. And he approved it, his office approved it.

So we went forward with this review, sort of done quietly off to the side. But from my perspective it was incumbent upon us as good managers to actually be good managers and to do this.

Transcript Reveals Fmr FBI Official Concerned That Strzok/Page Affair Could Compromise Them

Newly released congressional transcripts reveal that an FBI official had warned anti-Trump lovers Peter Strzok and Lisa Page that their affair could make them vulnerable to a foreign agent, according to the Washington Times.

The transcripts–released today by ranking House Judiciary Committee member Rep. Doug Collins (R-GA)–are from former assistant director of the FBI’s counterintelligence division Bill Priestap’s June 5, 2018 congressional interview. Priestap was in charge of overseeing both the Clinton probe and the hoax investigation into alleged Trump-Russia collusion.

The Times reports: “Mr. Priestap told the House Judiciary Committee that he talked to the anti-Trump lovebirds about rumors they were having an affair, but he never asked them if there was truth to the workplace gossip at the bureau.”

“[T]hey knew darn well that, if that was going on that potentially makes them vulnerable,” he said.

**LISTEN: Dan discusses the explosive Biden-Ukraine scandal**

Priestap added that he “had no information whatsoever that either of those individuals [Strzok or Page] had any contact, let alone engagement, or regular engagement, with an adversary.”

New McCabe-Page Texts Reveal DOJ was Concerned with Potential Bias in FISA Application

Text messages from 2016 between former deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe and former FBI lawyer Lisa Page reveal that a senior DOJ official had “continued concerns” about the “possible bias” of a source integral to the Carter Page FISA warrant application, according to Fox News.

On October 12, 2016, Lisa Page wrote to McCabe, “OI [Office of Intelligence] now has a robust explanation re any possible bias of the chs [confidential human source] in the package. Don’t know what the holdup is now, other than Stu’s continued concerns.”

Fox was told the texts were connected to the Page FISA application.

Fox News writes, “It’s unclear whether the confidential source in question was Steele or another individual. ‘Stu’ was an apparent reference to Stuart Evans, then the DOJ’s National Security Division deputy assistant attorney general. In one previously unearthed and since-unredacted text message, former FBI Special Agent Peter Strzok texted Lisa Page that he was ‘Currently fighting with Stu for this FISA’ in late 2016.”

“Strong operational need to have in place before Monday if at all possible, which means to ct tomorrow,” Page added. “I communicated you and boss’s green light to Stu earlier, and just sent an email to Stu asking where things stood. This might take a high-level push. Will keep you posted.”

Minutes later, Page wrote to McCabe, “If I have not heard back from Stu in an hour, I will invoke your name to say you want to know where things are, so long as that is okay with you.”

Other text messages reveal Page sent McCabe at least two anti-Trump articles. One article called Trump a “useful idiot” for Vladimir Putin and another said the President one of the greatest threats to national security.

Strzok: DOJ Didn’t Consider Clinton a “Target” During Email Investigation

Transcripts released today by ranking House Judiciary Committee member Doug Collins (R-GA) reveal that disgraced former FBI agent Peter Strzok told Congress the Department of Justice did not consider Hillary Clinton a “target” of its investigation into her email scandal, according to the Washington Times.

Strzok told the Judiciary Committee behind-closed-doors in June, “She was not considered a target by the Justice Department.” Instead, investigators saw her as a “critical player,” however, Clinton was “not by any means the only person that we had an investigative interest in.”

**LISTEN: Dan discusses Devin Nunes’ latest bombshell revelation in the Trump takedown**

The Times reports that the Strzok transcripts are somewhat at odds with his lover, Lisa Page’s transcripts, which were released on Tuesday:

In describing one text [Page] sent to Mr. Strzok in which she told him he was fated to be investigating Mr. Trump to save the country from a “menace,” she told the Judiciary Committee the menace was Mr. Trump himself.

Mr. Strzok, though, says he thought the menace she referred to was Russia.

Mr. Strzok also disputed the meaning of the now-infamous text exchange where Ms. Page worried Mr. Trump would become president and he replied “No. No he won’t. We’ll stop it.”

In the June 27, 2018, closed-door appearance with the Judiciary Committee he said he didn’t mean that he would stop Mr. Trump.

He said he didn’t recall specifically writing it, but says he now thinks the “we” he was talking about was the country at large.

Lisa Page: Strzok Hoped Mueller Probe Would Lead to Impeaching Trump to Advance his Own Career

Congressional transcripts reveal that former FBI attorney Lisa Page said her lover, disgraced former FBI agent Peter Strzok, hoped that Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation would lead to the impeachment of President Trump and advance his own career.

The transcripts of Page’s July 2018 closed-door interview were released yesterday by ranking member of the House Judiciary Committee, Rep. Doug Collins (R-GA).

The Washington Times reports:

Mr. Strzok seemed conflicted about whether it was worth joining the special counsel’s investigation in 2017, given that it might peter out with nothing to show.

Ms. Page told the House committees that didn’t necessarily mean he wanted to find something, but he did have his eye on career advancement and a major takedown of a president would help that.

**LISTEN: Dan discusses the stunning revelations in the Lisa Page transcripts**

“If it’s going to end in impeachment, that’s kind of a big deal,” she said. “I mean, put aside who it is, put aside how we feel about it. You know, that’s monumental. People who are on Watergate are still known as somebody who was on Watergate.”

She insisted that wasn’t an attack on Mr. Trump, though.

“It’s about being on an unbelievably kick-ass team and being a part of, you know, something impressive,” she said.

In the transcripts, Page also appears to confirm that the Obama Department of Justice told the FBI to stand-down in the Clinton email investigation.

Tweeting an excerpt of the transcripts of former FBI lawyer Lisa Page’s testimony, Rep. John Ratcliffe (R-TX) wrote, “Lisa Page confirmed to me under oath that the FBI was ordered by the Obama DOJ not to consider charging Hillary Clinton for gross negligence in the handling of classified information.”

In the excerpt, Ratcliffe said to Page, “But when you say advice you got from the Department, you’re making it sound like it was the Department that told you: You’re not going to charge gross negligence because we’re the prosecutors and we’re telling you we’re not going to —”

“That is correct,” Page interrupted, as Ratcliffe finished his sentence, ” — bring a case based on that.”

President Trump reacted to the release of Page’s transcripts this morning, tweeting, “The just revealed FBI Agent Lisa Page transcripts make the Obama Justice Department look exactly like it was, a broken and corrupt machine. Hopefully, justice will finally be served. Much more to come!”
