Russia Probe Over Anti-Trump Text Messages

Remembering Pearl Harbor
by Patriot Post Staff:  In October 1940, President Franklin D. Roosevelt declared, “I have said this before, but I shall say it again and again and again: Your boys are not going to be sent into any foreign wars.” This was a reiteration of his earlier assertion, “We are keeping out of the wars that are going on in Europe and in Asia. … Our opponents are seeking to frighten the country by telling people that the present administration is deliberately … drifting into war. You know better than that.”

          Roosevelt campaigned on neutrality in 1940. Roosevelt assured his constituents, “I give … to the people of this country this most solemn assurance: There is no secret treaty, no secret obligation, no secret commitment, no secret understanding in any shape or form, direct or indirect, with any other government, or any other nation in any part of the world, to involve this nation in any war.
          Unfortunately, Germany’s Führer Adolf Hitler and Japan’s Prime Minister Hideki Tojo didn’t cooperate.
          On December 7, 1941, more than 350 Japanese planes attacked Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, killing 2,390 American servicemen and civilians and wounding 1,282. The attack sank or damaged eight battleships, three cruisers, three destroyers and one minelayer and destroyed 188 aircraft. It took four years and the full military-industrial capability of the United States to defeat Japan. There was no more devastating surprise attack on the United States until 9/11.
          After the attack, Roosevelt stated: “December 7, 1941 — a date which will live in infamy — the United States of America was suddenly and deliberately attacked by naval and air forces of the Empire of Japan. … Always will we remember the character of the onslaught against us. No matter how long it may take us to overcome this premeditated invasion, the American people in their righteous might, will win through to absolute victory. … With confidence in our armed forces, with the unbounded determination of our people, we will gain the inevitable triumph — so help us God.
          Historian Victor Davis Hanson writes, “After Pearl Harbor, the United States went into a rearmament frenzy the likes of which had never been seen in history. America produced more airplanes and ships than all World War II powers combined. The U.S. military grew to 12 million soldiers. American military leadership in the Pacific — led by Admirals William Halsey Jr., Chester Nimitz and Raymond Spruance, along with Generals Curtis LeMay and Douglas MacArthur — proved far more skilled than their Japanese counterparts. And the American soldier, sailor, airman and Marine, after a bruising learning experience in early 1942, proved every bit as ferocious as veteran Japanese fighters.”
          It is with honor and respect for those who died or suffered terrible injuries that Sunday morning that we should never again fall into the slumber that allowed such a tragedy as Pearl Harbor — or the attack on Sept. 11, 2001 — again.  ~The Patriot Pos

Democrat Just Tried to Impeach President Trump and It Went Even Worse Than 
You Could Imagine

Right now, Congressional committees continue to be deeply engaged in investigations into the President’s actions both before and after his inauguration,” House Minority Leader Nancy Pulosi and Minority Whip Steny Hoyer said in a joint statement, according to The Washington Times...  https://www.westernjournalism.com/democrat-just-tried-impeach-presi...

Bannon Destroys “Willard Mitt Romney” 
After He Attacked Judge Roy Moore
{rickwells.us} ~ Steve Bannon responded to attacks by Mitt Romney on Judge Roy Moore... highlighting his choosing to take the hypocritical high horse in his criticism, something that Romney did in attacking President Trump as well during and after the campaign. Bannon told supporters at a Tuesday rally, “Let’s talk about another beauty, Willard “Mitt” Romney.” He lets the audience know that Romney started the back and forth by a comment on Monday that “Judge Moore lacked honor and integrity and that’s why he couldn’t vote for him.” Romney’s also not a resident of Alabama, another reason he couldn’t vote for him, but he could support him from Utah or just keep his overactive trap shut. Instead he’s got to attempt to put himself above the rest of us as some sort of swamp scummy moral compass... https://rickwells.us/bannon-destroys-romney-moore/

NYT: Top FBI Agent Removed From 
Russia Probe Over Anti-Trump Text Messages
by Timothy Meads
{townhall.com} ~ President Donald J. Trump responded via Twitter this morning to the New York Times and Washington Post reports that a top FBI agent named Peter Strzok had been removed from special counsel Robert Mueller's Russian election interference investigation probe. As reported yesterday, Strzok has supposedly been removed from the Russian investigation due to a series of anti-Trump texts exchanged between himself and FBI attorney Lisa Page. Page and Strzok were allegedly having an affair, as far back as the liar-Clinton e-mail investigation which Strzok was leading as well. This calls into question the integrity of both investigations, though some say it bolsters Mueller's reputation as a man of justice and commitment to the rule of law because he "moved swiftly" to remove Strzok from the ongoing Russian investigation.

The New York Times reports that special counsel Robert Mueller removed a top FBI agent from the on-going Russian election-interference investigation after it was discovered the agent sent text messages displaying political animosity towards President Trump.

"The agent, Peter Strzok, is considered one of the most experienced and trusted F.B.I. counterintelligence investigators. He helped lead the investigation into whether liar-Hillary Clinton mishandled classified information on her private email account, and then played a major role in the investigation into links between President Trump’s campaign and Russia.
But Mr. Strzok was reassigned this summer from Mr. Mueller’s investigation to the F.B.I.’s human resources department, where he has been stationed since. The people briefed on the case said the transfer followed the discovery of text messages in which Mr. Strzok and a colleague reacted to news events, like presidential debates, in ways that could appear critical of Mr. Trump.
A lawyer for Mr. Strzok declined to comment. A spokeswoman for the Justice Department said that “we are aware of the allegation and are taking any and all appropriate steps.”
Mr. Strzok’s reassignment shows that Mr. Mueller moved swiftly in the face of what could be perceived as bias by one of his agents amid a politically charged inquiry into Mr. Trump’s campaign and administration. But the existence of the text messages is likely to fuel claims by Mr. Trump that the F.B.I. has a bias against him and that he is a target of the “deep state” — a term used to describe the notion that government intelligence agencies secretly conspire together."

As the Times notes, Mueller's "swift action" may help silence some critics who believe the man is working to defeat President Trump, regardless of the facts. But, given Strzok's role in this investigation as well as others, it more likely will only increase speculation that the FBI is not acting honestly.

According to the Washington Post, Strzok's actions may have influenced other investigations, such as the FBI investigation into liar-Hillary Clinton's illegal e-mail use. The "text messages with a colleague" the Times refers to is  regarding messages critical of President Trump exchanged with FBI attorney Lisa Page, with whom Strzok was having an affair.

"Peter Strzok, as deputy head of counterintelligence at the FBI, was a key player in the investigation into liar-Clinton’s use of a private email server to do government work as secretary of state, as well as the probe into possible coordination between the Trump campaign and Russia in the 2016 election.
During the liar-Clinton investigation, Strzok was involved in a romantic relationship with FBI lawyer Lisa Page, who worked for Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, according to the people familiar with the matter, who spoke on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the issue.
The extramarital affair was problematic, these people said, but of greater concern among senior law enforcement officials were text messages the two exchanged during the liar-Clinton investigation and campaign season, in which they expressed anti-Trump sentiments and other comments that appeared to favor liar-Clinton."

This story will be updated if there is a presidential response specifically about Strzok.

Rush Limbaugh Explains How Robert Mueller
Will Attempt To Financially Destroy President Trump

 Special Counsel Robert Mueller has crossed President Trump’s “red line” after issuing a subpoena for documents related to the Trump Organization’s business dealings with Russia.

New York Times reports:

The special counsel, Robert S. Mueller III, has subpoenaed the Trump Organization to turn over documents, including some related to Russia, according to two people briefed on the matter. The order is the first known time that the special counsel demanded documents directly related to President Trump’s businesses, bringing the investigation closer to the president. […] The Trump Organization has said that it never had real estate holdings in Russia, but witnesses recently interviewed by Mr. Mueller have been asked about a possible real estate deal in Moscow. In 2015, a longtime business associate of Mr. Trump’s emailed Mr. Trump’s lawyer Michael Cohen at his Trump Organization account claiming he had ties to President Vladimir V. Putin of Russia and said that building a Trump Tower in Moscow would help Mr. Trump’s presidential campaign.

Radio host Rush Limbaugh theorized on his program Friday that one of Mueller’s true objectives is to financially destroy President Trump.

Partial transcript via Breitbart News:

And these requests, the subpoena for documents from the Trump Organization, I ask you again, what has that to do with the campaign and with collusion and with the Russians? They’ve already been looking into Trump business in Russia with the Miss, what is it, USA, whatever his pageant is.

Do you all remember during the early days of the campaign there was news that Trump, in a tax return something like 20 years ago, took a $900 million deduction that was granted and survived an audit by the IRS? Now, I forget the details. It had to do with losses that he had incurred in that year in building things. It was around 900 or $920 million deduction. I’ll never forget when it was reported because most people will never come close to ever having that in a lifetime, and to have a guy personally write that much off?

Anyway, I think Mueller wants that $920 million back. I think Mueller wants to prove that that was a faulty deduction. I think that they want to go back, they want to get Trump’s tax returns because they want to nullify that $900 million deduction, and then they want to collect 20 years of interest and penalties and wipe Trump out.

In the meantime, President Trump’s lawyers are in the process of negotiating with special counsel Robert Mueller to bring the Russia probe to an end, reports Rebecca Ballhaus and Peter Nicholas of the Wall Street Journal.

Mueller’s tentacles continue to reach further and further.

CNN reported that investigators are attempting to determine whether former Blackwater chief Erik Prince misled the  House Intelligence Committee about a meeting he had in Seychelles in January of 2017.

Prince is accused of using the meeting as an opportunity to establish a secret back channel with Russia.

Fox News’ Catherine Herridge spoke with one of President Trump’s personal lawyers about the new subpoena request by Special Counsel Mueller.

According to Herridge, Trump’s lawyer was unaware of the subpoena and said it may be a ‘wrap up’ subpoena or ‘clean up’ subpoena which may signal the end of the investigation.
