I was on Capitol Hill this week, and I had a fascinating conversation with Rep. Louie Gohmert of Texas.
As you may know, he aggressively confronted renegade FBI operative Peter Strzok, who was once chief of the FBI’s Counterespionage Section. There were several significant revelations from that hearing, which the media largely ignored.
Rep. Gohmert filled me in on some of the details of his exchange with Strzok, and this is something that really can’t be ignored.
Strzok told the committee that he was concerned about foreign influence in the 2016 election. Rep. Gohmert asked how serious his concern really was because key officials in the intelligence community had briefed Strzok about an “anomaly” they found on Hillary Clinton’s email server, and he did nothing.
They discovered during a forensic analysis that essentially everything Hillary sent on her server had been redirected to a hostile foreign power that was not Russia. Strzok told Gohmert that he could not recall this briefing.
Really? He could not recall being told that 30,000 emails from the secretary of state had been contemporaneously redirected to an enemy?
It seems that the Obama Administration was compromised by a foreign enemy because of the stupidity of the secretary of state and the malfeasance of the FBI’s counterespionage division, which was distracted by its efforts to take down the Republican presidential nominee.
In what world is this not a HUGE story?
If we had a truly non-partisan, unbiased free press, this would be banner headlines. But the entire media complex is instead talking about the Trump/Putin press conference.
