The Mayor


Late on Thursday afternoon, a bombshell dropped inside the normally extremely tight-lipped investigation office of Special Counsel Robert Mueller. Peter Strzok, a veteran FBI counterintelligence agent, was suddenly transferred from the Trump-Russia probe. An official announcement said Strzok was transferred to human resources at the FBI.

“I’ve never heard of an agent being moved to the human resources department.” Asha Rangappa, a former FBI counterintelligence agent and associate dean at Yale Law School, told the Business Insider. “I have seen instances where if some issue comes up, the agent might be moved to another investigation or to the operations center, where you essentially field calls all day, but why he would be moved to HR is just bizarre,” Rangappa said.

Strzok was not just a superstar inside the FBI working on some of the Bureau’s biggest counterintelligence cases, he was also involved in last year’s botched FBI investigation into Hillary Clinton’s e-mails.

~~~~~~~ Snip

Giuliani does indeed have close ties to the NYPD and the FBI in New York. He and Prince both actively worked on behalf of the Trump campaign while peddling the Clinton e-mail stories. Giuliani was a top surrogate and even considered for the Attorney General job and was involved in writing the Trump Administration’s “Muslim Ban”.

The day after Comey’s letter on the Weiner e-mails, he went on radio and admitted to discussing the case with active agents. “The other rumor that I get is that there’s a kind of revolution going on inside the FBI about the original conclusion [not to charge Clinton] being completely unjustified and almost a slap in the face to the FBI’s integrity,” said Giuliani. “I know that from former agents. I know that even from a few active agents.

If Steele’s assertions are true, it could explain why the FBI took so long take act on the Trump information Steele had collected. Now that senior FBI investigator Peter Strzok who helmed the Clinton e-mail investigation has been relieved of any counter-intelligence duties, it’s worth asking if the Office of the Inspector General has indeed turned up evidence to suggest elements in the FBI and the NYPD had been working to interfere in the election campaign on behalf of Trump and against Clinton and did the former hero Mayor of New York have a role?

Comey Looking At Whether FBI Agents Leaked Info To Giuliani During Campaign

FBI Director James Comey said Wednesday that he was looking into whether agents at the bureau leaked sensitive information to reporters or public figures, including close Trump ally Rudy Giuliani, during the 2016 election.

During a Senate Judiciary Committee oversight hearing, Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-VT) asked about former FBI official Jim Kallstrom’s and Giuliani’s claims that they had inside information about the bureau’s probe into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server.

“Now either they’re lying or there is a serious problem within the bureau,” Leahy said. “Did anybody in the FBI during this 2016 campaign have contact with Rudy Giuliani about the Clinton investigation?”

“I don’t know yet, but if I find out that people were leaking information about our investigations whether to reporters or private parties, there will be severe consequences,” Comey replied.
