Peter Strzok used James Comey leak to begin interviewing Trump associates.
A newly revealed text message suggests that former FBI official Peter Strzok sought to capitalize on news reports in January 2017 that President Donald Trump had been briefed about allegations in the infamous Steele dossier.
Strzok wanted to use a CNN report related to the dossier as a reason to interview witnesses as part of the FBI’s investigation into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian government, according to the text message.
“Sitting with Bill watching CNN. A TON more out,” Strzok, a former FBI counterintelligence official, texted to FBI lawyer Lisa Page on Jan. 10, 2017.
“Hey let me know when you can talk. We’re discussing whether, now that this is out, we use it as a pretext to go interview some people,” continued Strzok, according to a CNN report published Friday.
Now, a Palmieri Report analysis from months ago exposed the exact story they are talking about to James Comey himself.
Alright, so this is extremely odd. How in the world did James Comey know that CNN wanted to cover this Dossier? How did he know that they were looking for a hook to cover this Dossier? I’ll explain to you how. Using common sense we can come to the conclusion that the media was hammering him with questions on it. The media was hammering the FBI and the intelligence agencies with questions on it. This is the only way Comey would know these outlets had the dossier and that they would want to cover it. We can now move to the hook idea. Obviously, anti-Trump media was foaming at the mouth to cover this dossier. Comey admits this. Comey also admits that they need a hook to cover the story. This is where I become skeptical. Isn’t it weird that they end up getting that very hook after Comey met with Trump? I have no sourcing on this but it seems pretty clear to me what happened. Comey made sure to give the Mainstream Media a hook into this story because he wanted to take down Trump. Remeber Comey couldn’t verify the Dossier even though he tried.
