Newly released texts show Peter Strzok had a personal relationship with the judge presiding over the Michael Flynn case–and it gets worse…

March 16, 2018

  Shortly after Michael Flynn pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI in the Russian investigation the judge overseeing the case abruptly recused himself from the case. This always seemed fishy: we were given no reason for the sudden recusal but it was odd that he should step down after the plea because there was obviously some kind of conflict of interest which should have required him to recuse himself before the plea. And now we might know what it is.

  According to this story Peter Strzok was friends with the judge who was presiding over the case, Rudolph Contreras, and this judge was also on the FISA Court. On top of that it looks like Peter Strzok and Lisa Page were conspiring to set up a meeting with him. Here is more:

“Rudy is on the [Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court]!” Page excitedly texted Strzok on July 25, 2016. “Did you know that? Just appointed two months ago.”

“I did,” Strzok responded. “I need to get together with him.”

“[He] said he’d gotten on a month or two ago at a graduation party we were both at.”

    Upon sharing this information with each other Peter Strzok’s first reaction was to say he needed to meet with Rudy Contreras and more texts reveal what appears to be an attempt to set up just such a meeting. Here is more:

Strzok: “….She brought up a good point about being circumspect in talking to him in terms of not placing him into a situation where he’d have to recuse himself.”

Page: “I can’t imagine you either one of you could talk about anything in detail meaningful enough to warrant recusal.” Page then goes back to discussing a different issue saying, “Anyway, maybe you meant to, but didn’t.’

Strzok: “Really? Rudy. I’m in charge of espionage for the FBI. Any espionage FISA comes before him, what should he do? Given his friend oversees them?”

Page: “Standards for recusal are quite high. I just don’t think this poses an actual conflict. And he doesn’t know what you do?”

Strzok: “Generally he does know what I do. Not the level or scope or area but he’s super thoughtful and rigorous about ethics and conflicts. (redacted) suggested a social setting with others would probably be better than a one on one meeting. I’m sorry, I’m just going to have to invite you to that cocktail party. Of course you’ll be there. Have to come up with some other work people cover for action.”

  You can clearly see in these texts that Peter Strzok was concerned about this connection being discovered and it appears as if there was a conspiracy between Peter Strzok and some woman we only know as “she” at this point to set up a dinner meeting with others in order to be inconspicuous.

  We do not know if this meeting took place or not but we do know the FBI got a FISA warrant to spy on the Trump campaign by withholding information from the FISA court and we do know the FBI was hiding these texts from the Congressional investigation so there seems to be something here. 

  Despite all of this it is being reported that Jeff Sessions will not fire Andrew McCabe.

    Rush tells the story:

    I guess that’s why they make movies about this and don’t really have to embellish at all!

      I am not a big fan of Rush because he is a little to full of himself for my linking but he nailed this one! Thanks for sharing.
