We have all been hearing the names of dirty cops in the FBI such as James Comey, Andrew McCabe, Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, but there is one name that hasn’t come up that Rep. Chris Stewart told Judge Jeanine Pirro that we will be hearing more about soon.
It’s Bill Priestap, who is Peter Strzok’s boss. Judge Jeanine brought his name up and Stewart was going to move on when Judge Jeanine told Stewart that she wanted to know about him.
Judge Jeanine: Who is Christopher Wray defending other than his own FBI guys? Most of who are leaving or who’ve been asked to leave? I mean that’s what’s so crazy about this. Christopher Wray needs to be asked, what name did you want to be not revealed here? Peter Strzok? McCabe? You know the people that are clearly in trouble.
And, by the way, have you heard the name Bill Priestap in the FBI who’s the head of counterintelligence and Strzok’s boss?
Rep. Chris Stewart: Yeah, we’ve heard that name and you’re going to hear more of that name. I want to go back though to something you said…
Judge Jeanine: No, I want to go back to Priestap but you go back first… But I want to go back to Priestap. And I want my audience to remember this name. I’ll tell you why I’m asking. I don’t like that I haven’t heard of him. We’ve heard of the whole hierarchy, everybody on that seventh floor. And there’s one guy we don’t hear about and that’s Priestap.
Comey through him under the bus and said that this guy who was Strzok’s boss told Comey not to advise Congress of certain things. And the fact that we haven’t heard from Priestap tells me he’s cooperating with someone or what?
Chris Stewart: Well, look I’m going to be careful on this because I’m not sure what we can say on this and believe me, I don’t want to be the headline… Comey surrounded himself with liberal progressive hacks. And they don’t reflect the entity of the Department of Justice or the FBI.
People above, below and on the same level with Priestap have either been named as possibly breaking the law but we haven’t heard a word about Priestap. What is it that Rep Stewart knows? We shall soon see.
