During his testimony to the House, Peter Strzok testified that he was not involved in the writing of the FISA application and did not provide any information for it. But now we know differently. Strzok used a September 2016 letter from Carter Page to James Comey as a pretext to open an investigation into him. Paul Sperry of the New York Post tweeted on this subject.
“BREAKING: Newly released FISA application shows Strzok did, in fact, use Carter Page’s Sept. 2016 letter to Comey as a “pretext” to open investigation on him, as Strzok suggested in an email to Page in Sept re “Crossfire FISA.” Yet Strzok just swore he had nothing to do with Page FISA”
“DEVELOPING: US Judge Anne C. Conway and US Judge Raymond J. Dearie among the 4 FISA court judges who rubber-stamped illegal FISA surveillance warrants signed by Comey, McCabe and Yates to spy on Trump campaign”
Republican lawmakers have been wondering if Peter Strzok was involved in the Carter Page spy operation for over a year.
Congressman Jim Jordan (R-OH) previously asked FBI Director Christopher Wray if Peter Strzok played a role in the Carter Page FISA application.
“Did Peter Strzok help produce and present the application to the FISA court to secure a warrant to spy on Americans associated with the Trump campaign?” Jordan asked Wray in a December 2017 Congressional hearing.
“I’m not prepared to discuss what happened in the court,” Wray smugly replied.
Now we know Peter Strzok was involved and the FBI and DOJ have been scrambling to hide this information from Congressional oversight and the public.
Strzok knowingly lied to Congress. He charged Gen Flynn with perjury from the ambush interview, so I think it is fitting that Strzok should be fired for being less than candid like McCabe was and then prosecuted in a way that will cost him tons of money……… Just like they did to Gen Flynn. Give him enough time to wipe that smirk off his face.
