While we’re awaiting the public release of the ‘explosive’ House Intelligence Committee memo, another explosive letter was just released, this one from the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Government Affairs.
In that letter, further analysis of the text messages between lead FBI agent Peter Strzok and Lisa Page spin a very interest web.
It has become clear that, not only did Loretta Lynch know that the FBI was planning on exonerating Hillary of the email server charges, the DOJ actually helped draft Comey’s get-out-of-jail-free memo.
The whole thing stinks to high heaven and pretty much begs an independent investigator to investigate the FBI’s independent investigation, among other things.
Here’s more from Redstate…
I posted a bit earlier on the FBI using the “dog ate my homework” excuse for five critical months of text messages from Peter Strzok, the number two guy in the FBI’s counterintelligence operation, and his colleague and bedmate, Lisa Page.
But a recently released letter from Senator Ron Johnson, chairman of the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Government Affairs, there are other questions that need answered.
Strzok and Page are under pressure to clear Clinton after Cruz drops out of the race.
To fully appreciate what follows, this is the key timeline.
August 2015: FBI gets control of Hillary’s server and personal devices. Mostly.
November 2015. FBI investigation expands from storage of email to examining if Clinton jeopardized national security.
May 2016. James Comey begins circulating a draft of conclusions.
May 3, 2016. Ted Cruz drops out of GOP primary.
June 2016. Loretta Lynch meets with Bill Clinton.
July 1, 2016. Loretta Lynch says she will abide by any FBI recommendation.
July 2, 2016. Hillary Clinton interviewed by FBI.
July 5, 2016. Comey clears Clinton.
