Rep. Louie Gohmert Drops Strzok Hearing’s Bombshell Revelation

Peter Strzok, the former top FBI intelligence investigator whose text messages with his former lover FBI attorney Lisa Page rocked Washington and demonstrated the Mueller investigation of President Trump to be a complete sham, spent most of yesterday’s hearing before the House Judiciary Committee arrogantly parrying questions about his bias and lack of integrity.

Louie Gohmert Peter StrzokBut there was one bombshell revelation that our friend Rep. Louie Gohmert (TX-1) dropped during the hearing for which Strzok had no arrogant parry.

And it wasn’t when Rep. Gohmert asked the smirking Strzok whether he was lying under oath the same way he lied to his wife while he carried on an affair with now-former FBI lawyer Lisa Page.

"I can't help but wonder, when I see you looking there with a little smirk, how many times did you look so innocent into your wife's eyes and lie to her about Lisa Page?" Rep. Louie Gohmert pressed Strzok over objections by Democrats.

What Mr. Gohmert revealed is that the Intelligence Community Inspector General (ICIG) and his investigator reported to the FBI and more specifically Peter Strzok that the metadata from Hillary Clinton's email provided to the ICIG (and the FBI) for investigation showed that over 30,000 of Clinton’s emails were forwarded to the email of a known hostile foreign entity, not Russia, in real time.

Our friend Luke Rosiak of the Daily Caller unpacked Rep. Gohmert’s revelation further pointing out that ICIG found an “anomaly on Hillary Clinton’s emails going through their private server, and when they had done the forensic analysis, they found that her emails, every single one except four, over 30,000, were going to an address that was not on the distribution list.

“It was going to an unauthorized source that was a foreign entity unrelated to Russia,” Gohmert added.

Rosiak further reported that Gohmert said the ICIG investigator, Frank Rucker, presented the findings to Strzok, but that the FBI official did not do anything with the information.

Strzok acknowledged meeting with Rucker, but said he did not recall the “specific content.”

“The forensic examination was done by the ICIG and they can document that,” Gohmert said, further charging Strzok “you were given that information and you did nothing with it.”

Gohmert also said that someone alerted the Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz to the issue.

“Mr. Horowitz got a call four times from someone wanting to brief him about this, and he never returned the call,” Gohmert said according to Rosiak’s reporting.

The ICIG previously caught problems regarding Clinton’s server that the FBI missed – or ignored.

The bureau didn’t notice that some emails were openly marked classified with a “(C)” when they were sent.

The ICIG spotted the oversight after the FBI missed it, texts between Strzok and his mistress, former FBI lawyer Lisa Page, show.

“Holy cow,” Strzok wrote, “if the FBI missed this, what else was missed? … Remind me to tell you to flag for Andy [redacted] emails we (actually ICIG) found that have portion marks (C) on a couple of paras. DoJ was Very Concerned about this.”

In late 2017, ICIG Chuck McCullough — who was appointed by former President Barack Obama – took the unusual step of coming forward publicly to say that he perceived pushback after he began raising the alarm about issues with Clinton’s servers to then-Director of National Intelligence James Clapper reported Rosiak.

He said he found it “maddening” that Democrats, including Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California, were underselling the amount of classified information on the server.

McCullough said he “expected to be embraced and protected,” but was instead “chided” by someone on Capitol Hill for failing to consider the “political consequences” of his investigative findings, Fox News reported.

Here’s the full text of Rep. Gohmert’s exchange with Strzok, courtesy of the Daily Caller:

Gohmert: Mr. Rucker reported to those of you, the four of you there, in the presence of the ICIG attorney, that they had found this anomaly on Hillary Clinton’s emails going through their private server, and when they had done the forensic analysis, they found that her emails, every single one except four, over 30,000, were going to an address that was not on the distribution list. It was a compartmentalized bit of information that was sending it to an unauthorized source. Do you recall that?

Strozk: Sir, I don’t.

Gohmert: He went on the explain it. And you didn’t say anything, you thanked him, you shook his hand. The problem is it was going to an unauthorized source that was a foreign entity unrelated to Russia and from what you’ve said here, you did nothing more than nod and shake the man’s hand when you didn’t seem to be all that concerned about our national integrity of our election when it was involving Hillary Clinton. So, the forensic examination was done by the ICIG — and they can document that — but you were given that information and you did nothing with it. And one of the things I found most egregious with Mr. Horowitz’s testimony, and — by the way Mr. Horowitz got a call four times from someone wanting to brief him about this, and he never returned the call.

Rep. Louie Gohmert has demonstrated beyond any doubt the basis for the charge that Strzok was biased in favor of Hillary Clinton, and because of that bias he chose not to pursue a documented intelligence breach of major proportions. Even more importantly, Rep. Gohmert has clearly rebutted the finding of the Department of Justice Inspector General that while bias was exhibited, it had no effect on the work of the FBI or the Department of Justice.

We urge CHQ readers and friends to contact Attorney General Jeff Sessions through the Department of Justice Main Switchboard (202-514-2000) to demand that Peter Strzok be fired for dereliction of duty for failing to investigate the information presented to him by the Intelligence Community Inspector General as documented by Rep. Louie Gohmert at yesterday’s House Judiciary Committee hearing and that the Hillary Clinton email investigation be reopened.

I don't want Strzok to be just "fired", I want him to be prosecuted and appropriately sentenced for his criminal actions.
