‘We Can’t Take That Risk’ — FBI Officials Discussed ‘Insurance Policy’ Against Trump Presidency

Two FBI officials who worked on Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation exchanged text messages last year in which they appear to have discussed ways to prevent Donald Trump from being elected president.

“I want to believe the path you threw out for consideration in Andy’s office — that there’s no way [Trump] gets elected — but I’m afraid we can’t take that risk,” FBI counterintelligence official Peter Strzok wrote in a cryptic text message to Lisa Page, an FBI lawyer and his mistress.

“It’s like an insurance policy in the unlikely event you die before you’re 40,” Strzok wrote in the text, dated Aug. 15, 2016.

    Is this the definition of the Deep State?

      Maybe, but I’m 100% certain it is the definition of treason and all that entails.

    It didn’t work, but they’re still trying. Imagine if this was Obama and Republican FBI agents. “Coup” would be the lede!

    It would seem that the agents in question believed they had the power to determine who would become president (and who will be president). Democracy is for losers!

    The S wamp runs very deep, a threat to all who care about liberty.

    In any other criminal venue in the United States, that would be evidence of a criminal conspiracy. Period. That on its face is more evidence of collusion than everything evey investigation has purported to gather against Trump ever. An analogy would be if a member of Lincoln’s cabinet was conspiring with the Confederacy and there was written proof of it.

    If Sessions doesn’t move against Mueller he’s either the worst weakest AG in American history or he’s part of the plot.
