King: Did Trump Hating FBI Agent Poison Clinton and Trump Investigations?
Washington, D.C.- Congressman Steve King, a member of the House Judiciary Committee, releases the following video of his questioning of Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein during today’s Department of Justice oversight hearing. During his questioning, King focused on newly disclosed text messages between FBI officials Peter Strzok and Lisa Page that reveal the presence of significant anti-Trump/Pro-Clinton bias within the FBI. The existence of these text messages further calls into question whether the FBI’s previous investigation of Hillary Clinton and Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s current investigation of President Trump was/is hopelessly compromised by the hyper-partisan Strzok, a man who has played significant roles in both efforts.

King: “I'm looking at what was reported this morning. I just took a picture of the television set. A quote from August 6th, Lisa Page to Peter Strzok, and they're talking about President Trump and she's speaking to Peter Strzok, her lover, I hear.
‘Lisa Page (to Peter Strzok): Maybe you're meant to stay where you are because you are meant to protect the country from that menace.
Peter Strzok (to Lisa Page): It's absolutely true that we're both very fortunate and of course I’ll try and approach it that way. I just don't know. It will be tough at times. I can protect our country at many levels, not sure if that helps.’
King: Does that sound like a declaration that he would use his job to leverage his work against the President of the United States?”
To many observers, it does sound like such a declaration. The American public deserves to know the extent to which the FBI has been politicized, and whether rabid pro-Clinton partisanship by Peter Strzok, and others associated with Mueller’s team, has thoroughly compromised investigative efforts. It has been established that at least 9 of the 16 members of Special Counsel Mueller’s hand-selected team have donated to Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, and/or the Democratic Party. In contrast, only one member of the 16 member Mueller team has contributed to Republican candidates.
Some of the biased Strzok/Page text messages refer to President Trump in such profane and hateful terms that they are deemed unsuitable for inclusion in this press release.
