Over the past few weeks, multiple members of White House Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigative team have been exposed as either Democrat operatives or as having an anti-Trump bias. Now, South Carolina Representative Trey Gowdy has finally had enough.
The Daily Caller reported that Gowdy spoke out on Thursday to ask why an anti-Trump FBI agent had supervision over the Hillary Clinton email investigation. The politician pointed out the various problematic things that Agent Peter Strzok had done while overseeing the Clinton and Trump-Russia investigations.
Gowdy slammed Strozk’s decision to change the wording of Clinton’s behavior with her private email server from “grossly negligent” to “extremely careless.”
“It’s really difficult to say, ‘we’re not gonna prosecute you’ when we use the precise words, so he changed it to extremely careless,” he explained. “There is no difference–the only difference is they didn’t want to use the wording in the statute.”
He went on to shut down the idea that Strzok would be responsible for interviewing key witnesses in the Clinton probe.
“If he had pro-Clinton or anti-Trump bias, what the hell was he doing interviewing Hillary Clinton?” Gowdy asked.
This came after it was revealed that Peter Strzok, one of Mueller’s top investigators, was fired from the probe for exchanging numerous anti-Trump text messages with his mistress Lisa Page, an FBI lawyer who was also involved with the case.
In their texts, Strzok and Page referred to Trump as an “idiot” and as a “loathsome human.”
On top of that, Fox News reported that Mueller investigator Jeannie Rhee previously represented ex-Obama aide Ben Rhodes and the Clinton Foundation. She is one of three attorneys who followed Mueller from WilmerHale, the firm he worked at before becoming special counsel. While working at this firm, Rhee focused on representing people in government investigations, including white-collar criminal probes and criminal and civil fraud matters during her time at WilmerHale.
In addition, a Wall Street Journal report confirmed that Mueller’s top deputy Andrew Weissmann attended former 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s election night party in New York City. This has obviously lead to even more concerns that Mueller’s team has a strong anti-Trump bias.
Making matters worse, conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch recently published an email exchange between Weissmann and then-acting Attorney General Sally Yates’ showing Weissmann’s pleasure regarding Yates’s decision not to enforce Trump’s travel ban in January.
“I am so proud. And in awe. Thank you so much. All my deepest respects,” Weissmann wrote Yates on January 30.
