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.”

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.

Flashback: Poll Finds Surprising Percentage of Dems Believe U.S. Border Should be Secured

A Harvard University poll from January 2018 reveals that a large percentage of Democrats believe the U.S. border should be secured and that many Americans are in agreement on how the government should approach immigration and border security.

In light of the border wall battle in Washington, D.C., it might be helpful to remind politicians and bureaucrats where the American people stand on this important issue.

The Washington Times reports:

The findings reveal, for example, that eight out of 10 of all U.S. voters — 79 percent — say the U.S. needs secure borders; 93 percent of Republicans, 80 percent of independents and 68 percent of Democrats agree with that. 

Seventy-nine percent of voters believe in granting priority to those immigrants who can “contribute to America.” Broken down, 87 percent of Republicans agree with this merit-based approach, as well as , 79 percent of independents and 72 percent of Democrat.

Many Americans also oppose the lottery-based immigration system: 78 percent of Republicans, 65 percent of independents and 62 percent of Democrats.
