Peter Strzok suspected the CIA was behind inaccurate media leaks.
Peter Strzok: “I’m beginning to think the agency got info a lot earlier than we thought and hasn’t shared it completely with us. Might explain all these weird/seemingly incorrect leads all these media folks have. Would also highlight agency as source of some of the leaks.”
In April 2017, Peter Strzok emailed colleagues saying he suspected that “the agency” (CIA) had not shared all of its Trump-Russia intel, and that it was leaking to the media, often inaccurately. https://t.co/e4LxGPF7HB @dailycaller

“I’m beginning to think the agency got info a lot earlier than we thought and hasn’t shared it completely with us. Might explain all these weird/seemingly incorrect leads all these media folks have. Would also highlight agency as source of some of the leaks,” Strzok wrote in an email to FBI colleagues on April 13, 2017.
The email is highlighted in a letter that two Republican senators sent Monday to Michael K. Atkinson, the inspector general of the intelligence community.
In the letter, Sens. Chuck Grassley of Iowa and Ron Johnson of Wisconsin asked Atkinson if he has investigated whether the CIA or other intelligence community agencies leaked information to the press.
They pointed to a Dec. 15, 2016 text message that Strzok, the lead investigator on the Trump-Russia probe, sent to then-FBI attorney Lisa Page. More
I think we are going to see that intelligence collection resources and capabilities that were intended to combat terrorism were used to target political enemies. A grotesque abuse of power that must be punished.
Let me get an FBI’S MOST wanted poster with that pic on it.

Brennan, Clapper, and Comey will have a lot of explaining to do. I sure hope AG Barr drops the hammer on these crooked fools who had their coup fail. Are they about to experience some serious karma?
