The DOJ/FBI 'Media Leak Strategy' Against Trump
More information comes to light showing deep-state efforts to build an anti-Trump narrative.
Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC) sent a letter Monday to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein requesting more information and explanation for texts between the two infamous anti-Trump FBI officials, Peter Strzok and Lisa Page. Meadows indicated that there is “evidence suggesting FBI/DOJ leaked to the media for their own purposes.” And those purposes were to damage President Donald Trump.
Meadows notes a couple text exchanges between Strzok and Page wherein a reference is made to “a media leak strategy.” The first text in question is dated April 10, 2017, and reads, “I [Strzok] literally just gone to find this phone to tell you I want to talk to you about media leak strategy with DOJ before you go.” The following day, The Washington Post published a story where it is learned that the FBI had obtained a FISA warrant to engage in surveillance on Trump adviser Carter Page back in 2016. Needless to say, this story served to further the media’s narrative of a Trump/Russia collusion conspiracy. On April 12, Strzok again texted Lisa Page congratulating her on a job well done regarding two negative news stories about Carter Page. He then alerted her to two more news stories that will be coming out that will be “worse” on Carter Page than the previous ones.
“While those two text messages alone are troubling enough, events surrounding these interactions call the motives of the investigative team into question,” Meadow’s wrote. He continued, “Other documents indicate DOJ officials, specifically Andrew Wiessmann [who is currently on Robert Mueller’s team] participated in unauthorized conversations with the media during this same time period.” Strzok was finally fired last month, but it would seem the culture of corruption continues.
Recall the reason for why former Deputy Director Andrew McCabe was fired — he lied to the inspector general specifically regarding his involvement in releasing unauthorized information to the media. Now with this latest news, the details of this concerted effort by several individuals in leadership positions within the DOJ/FBI to damage Trump is becoming more clear. Slowly but surely, more pieces of the puzzle are falling into place, and this fiasco has “deep-state quasi coup” written all over it.
“There are dozens of documents that support the fact that Peter Strzok and Lisa Page had ongoing relationships with multiple reporters, and that they were feeding them information to spin a narrative. It’s not legal… They are denying it, and we have the proof.” —Rep. Mark Meadows
“The dossier was a big lie. What they did is, they said, ‘It’s a big lie. The more people we can get to talk about the dossier, the more likely it is they will believe the lie.’ So that’s why they had the leak strategy — to support a document that was the basis of everything.” —Rep. Jim Jordan
