(Liberty Bell) – Peter Strzok is whining to the mainstream media about how hard it is having been called out by President Donald Trump for using his position as an FBI agent to try to influence the outcome of an American election.
Poor Peter Strzok.
“Being subjected to outrageous attacks up to and including by the president himself, which are full of lies and mischaracterizations and just crude and cruel, is horrible,” Strzok told The Associated Press in an interview. “There’s no way around it.”
In a new book (because of course he has a book deal) “Compromised: Counterintelligence and the Threat of Donald J. Trump,” which is due out Tuesday, Strzok pours out his life story with plenty of Orange Man Bad.
By the way, this is the guy who was caught texting his extramarital lover, ex-FBI lawyer Lisa Page, about how much he hated Trump and the “insurance plan” they had should he win the 2016 election.
On a government phone, by the way.
“I deeply regret casually commenting about the things I observed in the headlines and behind the scenes, and I regret how effectively my words were weaponized to harm the Bureau and buttress absurd conspiracy theories about our vital work,” Strzok writes.
The AP glowingly explains:
Before becoming a virtual household name, Strzok spent two decades at the FBI toiling in relative anonymity on sensational spy cases. He helped uncover Russian sleeper agents inside the U.S., worked the Edward Snowden case and led the investigation into whether Hillary Clinton mishandled classified information. (She did, he writes, but not in a way meriting prosecution).
After the Clinton case concluded in July 2016, Strzok opened an investigation into whether the campaign of her Republican opponent was coordinating with Russia, conceiving the “Crossfire Hurricane” codename he says proved prescient.
Strzok says that he’d like his book to give insight to the Clinton investigation, Russian election interference, and “first and foremost, the counterintelligence threat that I see in Donald Trump.”
So basically, this is “insight” into the biggest political scandal of US history, as the Clinton probe and Obamagate all link together, make no mistake, and the fact that this guy worked on both is a huge part of it, as he is a key player in this massive political scandal.
What preening garbage!
“To do that” (shed insight into the Trump “intelligence threat), he told the AP, “I wanted to show the reader what happened but also why they should believe me.”
“I hadn’t wanted to investigate the president of the United States,” Strzok writes, apparently hoping we will have forgotten that he ranted and raved to his paramour about how much he hated Trump before he got elected. “But my conviction on that point had been eroded by Trump’s continued suspicious behavior with the Russians and his ongoing attacks on our investigation.”
This is all about Strzok’s “convictions.”
