Kirsters Baish| FBI investigator Peter Strzok was fired from the ridiculous “Russian Collusion” investigation by special counsel Robert Mueller after it was revealed that he had exchanged some damning texts with his mistress and fellow FBI investigator, Lisa Page. In the text messages, the two mentioned a “secret society” that was targeted at taking down President Trump.
This past Monday, chairman of the House Cybersecurity Committee, Congressman John Ratcliffe, sent out a tweet which denounced the FBI’s “manifest bias” following the revelation of the tweets.

Ratcliffe’s tweet came after reports that FBI agent Peter Strzok had texted about a mysterious “secret society,” which he claimed would destroy President Donald Trump. Initially, Strzok was a member of the team that was investigating the alleged “collusion” between President Trump and Russia during the 2016 presidential election. Strzok’s communications have now become a big part of the evidence proving that the Mueller investigation was a train wreck.
The fact that Strzok’s texts showed just how biased the investigators on the case were, proves that the entire thing was screwed from the start. Representatives Trey Gowdy and John Ratcliffe are out to find answers.
Both Gowdy and Ratcliffe made an appearance on Fox News on Monday.
Ratcliffe was quoted saying, “It is possible these text messages that are missing, perhaps they really were lost. Perhaps it is another strange coincidence. It is harder and harder for us to explain one strange coincidence after another. We know that Strzok and Page had an intense anti-Trump bias. And that’s OK, so long as they check it at the door and do their job. We learned today in the thousands of text messages we have reviewed, that perhaps they may not have done that. We know about this ‘insurance policy’ that was referenced trying to prevent Donald Trump from becoming president. We learned today about information that in the immediate aftermath of his election, there may have been a ‘secret society’ of folks within the Department of Justice and the FBI, to include Page and Strzok, working against him. I’m not saying that actually happened, but when folks speak in those terms, they need to come forward to explain the context.”
Gowdy followed up Ratcliffe’s statement by adding on some information about the “secret society.” He stated, “You have this insurance policy in Spring 2016, and then the day after the election, what they really didn’t want to have happen, there is a text exchange between these two FBI agents, these supposed to be fact-centric FBI agents saying, ‘Perhaps this is the first meeting of the secret society.’ So I’m going to want to know what secret society you are talking about, because you’re supposed to be investigating objectively the person who just won the Electoral College. So yeah — I’m going to want to know.”
Both representatives promised that they would be continuing on in their efforts to make the bias public and expose the corruption within the FBI. Then there was Sebastian Gorka with a very interesting question. He asked how a mere civil servant like Peter Strzok could possibly afford the lawyer that he recently hired, the same lawyer representing Harvey Weinstein…
Who exactly is paying for Strzok’s lawyer? Because we sure as hell know he can’t afford it on his own.
