Did FBI Consider Infiltrating Presidential Elect Trump’s Administration?

As we’ve seen, where there’s smoke there’s usually fire when it comes to the way the FBI under Mr. Obama was going after Trump, his campaign, and his people

Senators: Strzok-Page Texts Suggest FBI Wanted to Develop Sources Within Trump Administration

Two top Republican senators are asking Attorney General William Barr to look into text messages between former FBI agent Peter Strzok and former FBI lawyer Lisa Page that suggest that shortly after the 2016 election, the FBI wanted to develop sources within the incoming Trump administration for surveillance purposes.

Sens. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) and Ron Johnson (R-WI) wrote in a letter to Barr on Thursday:

[I]n the course of our oversight work we have reviewed certain text messages that may show potential attempts by the FBI to conduct surveillance of President-elect Trump’s transition team. In text messages exchanged between former FBI Special Agent Peter Strzok and former FBI Attorney Lisa Page, the two discussed the possibility of developing ‘potential relationships’ at a November 2016 FBI briefing for presidential transition team staff.

While discussing who should attend the briefing, Strzok texted Page on November 17, 2016: “If Katie’s husband is there, he can see if there are people we can develop for potential relationships.”

Grassley and Johnson wrote that the nature of the communications and the precise purpose of any attempts to “develop relationships” with Trump or Pence transition team staff “are not immediately clear.”

“Were these efforts done to gain better communication between the respective parties, or were the briefings used as intelligence gathering operations? Further, did any such surveillance activities continue beyond the inauguration, and in the event they did, were those activities subject to proper predication?

“Any improper FBI surveillance activities that were conducted before or after the 2016 election must be brought to light and properly addressed,” they wrote.

These are questions that need to be answered. We got the investigation into Trump and his campaign and Russia Russia Russia, which was a big fail for the Trump haters on the left and the #NeverTrumpers on the right. Now it is time to investigate just how parts of the Executive Office, as led by President Barack H. Obama, spied on a presidential candidate.

    The best argument in favor of Trump’s presidency is what Trump’s presidency has taught us about the character of the people who oppose him, and who would be wielding power if he weren’t.

    The majority of Americans are “tRump haters” and “nevertRumpers”.

    Not so fast there, bucky. Did you read the report? Or are you just taking the amoral tRump and tRump lackey’s, Barr, Hannity (Trump TV) and Rosenstein at their word?

    It was a campaign and administration that had several dozen contacts (discovered so far) with a foreign government that SUCCESSFULLY interfered in a US election. And a campaign and administration, including the US “president”, who lied repeatedly to cover it all up. Sorry, Charlie, but that’s worthy of investigation, don’t you agree?

    Anyway, if illegal surveillance is discovered it should be dealt with appropriately.

    And of course autocrats want to silence, then crush the opposition – the opposition party and the media. It’s in the job description! Dictators have to control information.

    We’ll see how the American system withstands an assault by an un-American, authoritarian, amoral, sociopath with no regard for American values, norms or mores.

    It seems our checks and balances couldn’t withstand a sociopath winning the election by a narrow margin (losing the popular vote by millions!), by using the help from a foreign enemy, then consolidating his power with equally amoral minions. Lieutenants willing to do their lord’s bidding are slithering to the surface – his cowardly Goebbels, Mengeles, Eichmanns and Gorings -sniveling sycophants such as Lindsey Graham, Mitch McConnell, the GOP, Bill Barr, conservabloggers, FOX editorialists, the echo chamber – all afraid to be part of the “out” groups when the hammer falls.

      That’s why we keep hearing about Jexodus, Lexit, Blexit, and WalkAway.

      Too bad Mule Ears’ report didn’t see it that way.

      OK, I invoked Sun Tzu and his kill one, impress a thousand aphorism. Will you get on the bandwagon to prosecute Zippy, Holder, the Hildabeast, the Podesta brothers, Comey, Clapper, Brennan, et al, and imprison them for life?

      It’s doing just fine. Zippy is out and we elected The God Emperor of the Cherry Blossom Throne <God, he is easy!).

      First, Goebbelses; second, it’s Goerings.

      Third, Trump is gutting Zippy’s legacy and starting to go after Willie’s, so things are doing just fine.

      Fourth, he won by at least 3 mil in the popular vote, if the popular vote was how we elect Presidents.

      His next screed will be where the profanity starts. Wonder what triggered it this time.

      PS Know that old wheeze about uyou can tell you’re getting older when you start repeating everything?

      I guess Jeffery is going Biden.

    We already have. After that un-American, authoritarian, amoral, sociopath with no regard for American values, norms and mores called Barack “Hussein” Obama (or Barry Soetoro if you prefer) we elected Donald Trump to undo the shit he made. And it’s working. Look at you and your ilk! You’re unhinged! What will you do at 9pm EST on November 3, 2020 when The Orange Man is reelected by a landslide? Leftist tears, leftist tears. Over two full years of leftist tears. And more to come.

      Hope the dems keep up the “anyone but Trump” campaign message.
      It’s a sure winner… for Trump. https://www.thepiratescove.us/wp-content/plugins/wp-monalisa/icons/wpml_cool.gif

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:

      As I said, we’ll have to see if tRump succeeds in suppressing American’s natural desire for freedom enough to enable the Russians to help him steal another election.

      America may end with a tRumper, not a bang.

      • formwiz says:

        Come up with that one all by yourself?

        And the Russkies won’t have to help him do anything. Looks like the Demos and the looney tunes will do it all by themselves.

      • Mangoldielocks says:

        TIN FOIL ALERT!

        Elwood is still obsessing over the Russians. Paid agitator.

    Would it be illegal or improper to Consider Infiltrating a campaign/administration with a recent history of dozens of secretive interatctions with Russian spies and the Russian government?

    • formwiz says:

      Only if you consider capitalism illegal.

      And, if you go to the FBI website, this is what they investigate

      Campaign finance

      Civil rights violations

      Voter/ballot fraud

      A voter intentionally gives false information when registering to vote;

      A voter receives money or something of value in exchange for voting in a federal election or registering to vote;

      Someone votes more than once in a federal election;

      An election official corrupts his or her office to benefit a candidate or party (e.g., lets unqualified voters cast ballots).

      Sounds like the Feds should have investigated the Democrats.

      You are referring to Hillary’s group. I think they are just starting on her. Trump has been cleared.

      Winning

    Me too, Liljeffy. As long as the demoncrats and their web trolls like Elwood keep calling white working middle class patriotic Americans “white supremacists/neoNazi’s/racists/bigots” and the rest of their racist mantra we gain more and more on our team Hell, I don’t even know “what our” team is any more since the Republicans are neo-democrats, the neverTrumpers joined the left and conservatives are now “extremists”. I do know that the middle class and more and more people of color that used to be die hard Dems are switching in the millions. seems the hate and bigotry of white Christian men by the radical left does not attract as many followers as they thought it would. I guess calling people names won’t make them join your party. Whoodathunk?

    Every time Elwood goes on an anti American “I hate white guys” rant I copy it and email it to my friends and post it on the net. Elwood, to his credit, has moved quite a few people I know from Dem to Rep in the last year. I thank the boy. Keep up the good work.

    Well, it’s not all Elwood. Dyslexia Occasional-Cotex moved two Dems to our team that I know. The Dems with their Dem-Socialist shit has turned off more average Americans than any other thing. Kids love stupid shit cause they’re stupid. But adults like real content and ideas not pie-in-the-sky shit and Orange Man Bad 24/7/365 for two years.

    The biggest hole is the Report’s utter failure to address the validity of the “predicate” to the entire Trump investigation.

    It’s as if Mueller didn’t want to know whether any of the information that launched the investigation he was overseeing was a set-up or even true.
