Let the leftist spin begin!

Horowitz said that five FBI officials expressed hostility toward Trump before his election as president and disclosed in his report to Congress on Thursday that their actions have been referred to the bureau for possible disciplinary action.

One example cited in the new report is an exchange of texts between FBI officials Peter Strzok and Lisa Page on Aug. 8, 2016. Page questioned whether Trump would become president. Strzok replied: “No. No he’s not. We’ll stop it.”

Umm...those people are being reprimanded. What's the issue? Also, you forgot to mention this in the article:

Quote:
Horowitz, whose office said it reviewed more than 1.2 million documents and interviewed more than 100 witnesses, didn’t challenge Comey’s fundamental decision against recommending prosecution of Clinton for mishandling classified information.

But the inspector general called it “extraordinary and insubordinate for Comey to conceal his intentions from his superiors, the Attorney General and Deputy Attorney General, for the admitted purpose of preventing them from telling him not to make the statement, and to instruct his subordinates in the FBI to do the same.”

He said that “we did not find that these decisions were the result of political bias on Comey’s part,” but “by departing so clearly and dramatically from FBI and department norms, the decisions negatively impacted the perception of the FBI and the department as fair administrators of justice.”

Except Strzok and Page had political motives.

The NY AG filing on the same day the IG report is released, Democrats as usual, playing games.

Yes, and they're up for disciplinary action, as they should be. And?

A conspiracy of high ups in the FBI, to attempt to damage a Presidential candidate and standing President, is an incredible hit to democracy in the USA.

And add in the other intel agencies. Despicable how they all interfered in the 2016 election, then point a finger at the laughable Russian ads and spending of $100,000 on those ads after Hillary lost. How much did Hillary pay for the phony dossier?

From Vox:

Despite Strzok’s extremely inappropriate texting — it’s wildly improper for someone in his position to express animus or favoritism toward a particular candidate — the inspector general found no evidence that Strzok acted on his text to Page.

“Our review did not find documentary or testimonial evidence directly connecting the political views these employees expressed in their text messages and instant messages to the investigative decisions we reviewed,” the IG report states.

Aren't you and your people forgetting something?? Not that it's important or has any relevance whatsoever, but just for kicks let's consider it and remember that after all the so-called bias, interference, FBI influence, favoritism, skull-duggery.......................

Trump WON!

So Where's The Beef? YOUR guy WON. *W.O.N.* The presidency!!

Seriously. I could really understand your outrage and fury if Trump had lost......but HE WON.

Almost as bad as the campaign of a presidential candidate colluding with Russia to throw an election in the U.S.

The incredible hit to democracy is, of course, the right wing refusal to say it was a bad thing.
