Disgraced former FBI agent Peter Strzok continued to push debunked conspiracy theories involving the President, declaring he still believes Trump is “compromised by the Russians.” compromised peter strzok
Strzok was allowed to spread his false statements during an interview with ‘Meet the Press’ anchor, Chuck Todd.
“I believed at the time in 2016 and I continue to believe that Donald Trump is compromised by the Russians,” Strzok claimed. “And when I say that I mean that they hold leverage over him that makes him incapable of placing the national interest, the national security ahead of his own.”
The comments confirm why Strzok never should have been involved in any investigation into President Trump in the first place.
Strzok was removed from then-Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s team once messages were discovered between him and his lover, former FBI attorney Lisa Page, that showed the pair exchanging rabidly anti-Trump messages.
He was, at one time, Mueller’s most senior agent on the case, and exchanged messages with Page discussing ways of stopping Trump’s presidency with an “insurance policy.”

Pushes Collusion Hoax
Todd led Strzok into questioning whether or not he believed there was no collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia after reading the Mueller Report.
“I concluded the opposite,” Strzok replied, a Rorschach test of sorts which proves the importance of pulling Strzok off the case.
NBC News reported in late March of 2019 that “Mueller found no proof that President Donald Trump criminally colluded with Russia and reached no conclusion about whether Trump obstructed justice.”
Media spent many months afterward trying to parse words in an effort to change that definitive statement on collusion into a different conclusion in the public consciousness.
It didn’t work as the facts remain the facts.

Downplays FBI’s FISA Lies compromised peter strzok
Strzok, in a separate interview with CBS News, dismissed mistakes made on FISA applications by FBI agents as a product of being “overworked.”
“I don’t think at all that it’s anything improper,” suggested Strzok. “You get people who are overworked, who make mistakes — and don’t get me wrong, inexcusable mistakes.”
Senator Lindsey Graham recently explained that the FBI lied to the FISA courts, a well-documented fact, about the reliability of the infamous Steele dossier, as well as about the source who was American-based and “on the payroll of the Democratic Party.”
“Somebody needs to go to jail,” he said.
“You’re going to find, not only did the FBI lie to the FISA court. They lied their ass off to the Congress.”
Strzok’s comments come after evidence dropped last week suggesting the FBI was themselves compromised.
Documents from the Department of Justice suggest multiple members of Mueller’s investigative team “accidentally wiped” their phones after the Office of the Inspector General (OIG) requested them.
Senator Chuck Grassley wrote a letter to Attorney General William Barr asking for an investigation into potential violations of federal record-keeping laws.
“Many of those deletions occurred after the agency watchdog discovered anti-Trump texts on then-FBI agent Peter Strzok’s government-issued phone, and after the Justice Department Inspector General began reviewing the Crossfire Hurricane investigation,” he notes.

Meanwhile, when asked if there should be more indictments coming from U.S. Attorney John Durham’s investigation into the origins of the Trump-Russia probe, the President didn’t hold back.
“I think [former FBI Director James] Comey is a disgrace to our country,” he told reporters. “I think Strzok — who just wrote a book, which is a total fake — is a disgrace. I think Page — Lisa Page, his lover — is a disgrace to our country.”
Indeed, Strzok is a disgrace to the country. And the media doesn’t think twice about letting him spew debunked conspiracy theories on their airwaves.
