One of the text messages from Peter Strzok to his paramour, Lisa Page, said something was an insurance policy against Trump winning. It is possible that we have found it. It’s also possible that we didn’t. Read the following and decide for yourself.
We know that Barack Obama was aware of Russians trying to sow confusion into our election process (or so the story goes). Obama administration “cybersecurity coordinator” Michael Daniel was handling the investigation, though his unit stopped in it’s tracks. The reason? Susan Rice ordered him to step down. Daniel said this as he was testifying before a Congressional committee. Why would you have your cyber security team stand down in the middle of them committing cyber attacks on our systems? Believe it or not, there could be several reasons:
It could be that it wasn’t the Russians. We know from Wikileaks that our intelligence community can stage an attack and make it look like the Russians.
It could be that the Russians were actually working for Hillary. After all, they already bought her for 145.5 million dollars.
It could be an insurance policy on the off chance Trump won so they could then try to tie him to the Russian’s actions.
It could be one of these possibilities, or a completely different one.
“You were told to stand down, is that correct?” asked Idaho Republican Jim Risch, The Daily Caller reported.
“Those actions were put on the back burner, yes,” Daniel said. “That was not the focus of our activity during that time period.”
The exchange during Wednesday’s committee meeting sounds awfully dry compared to how the order was presented in the Isikoff-Corn book, according to The Daily Caller.
In the book, one of Daniel’s staff members said he was “incredulous and in disbelief” when he learned about Rice’s command.
“Why the hell are we standing down?” the staffer asked, according to The Daily Caller. “Michael, can you help us understand?”
The book in question is Russian Roulette by Yahoo News reporter Michael Isikoff and David Corn, Washington bureau chief for the liberal magazine Mother Jones. If you spray enough, the cockroaches will come out of the woodwork.
