Russiagate: Strzok Strzikes Back

I guess this puts Lindsey Graham in the role of Luke Skywalker? Dan Chaitin at WaEx, Peter Strzok fires back at Lindsey Graham. Apparently the man has no shame:
Peter Strzok castigated Lindsey Graham after the senator unveiled declassified documents that he said showed the "corrupt nature" of the Russia investigation.

The former FBI agent denounced by President Trump and his allies shot back at Graham, the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, in response to the South Carolina Republican's comments about a document showing Strzok harshly criticized a February 2017 New York Times report tying the Trump campaign to Russian intelligence officials.

Graham said the document "demonstrates that Peter Strzok and others in F.B.I. leadership positions must have been aware of the issues with" British ex-spy Christopher Steele's dossier, which contained unverified claims of ties between the Trump team and Russia, "that the F.B.I.’s interview with Steele’s ‘primary subsource’ revealed."

Strzok responded through his lawyer.

“Sen. Graham’s statement represents another attempt by President Trump’s congressional lackeys to use Pete’s work product to paint the Russia investigation as a political witch hunt,” Strzok's lawyer Aitan Goelman said in a statement obtained by the Washington Examiner.
It's not Peter Strzok's work product, it's the United States government's work product. Chuck Ross at Da Caller, ‘Starting To Unravel’: Trump Chief Of Staff Expects Indictments From Durham Probe
“You’re going to see a couple of other documents come out in the coming days that will suggest that not only was the [Trump] campaign spied on, but the FBI did not act appropriately as they were investigating,” Meadows also said in an interview on Fox News’s “Sunday Morning Futures.”
. . .
“I think the American people expect indictments. I know I expect indictments based on the evidence I’ve seen,” Meadows told host Maria Bartiromo.

Mick Huckabee, New Documents Show NO DOUBT "Russia" was a Hoax. At AmThink Andrea Widberg asks What did Comey know and when did he know it?. Everything and early. Either Jim Comey was stupid and let the people under him pull off the attempted coup, or he was on the ball, and involved. Either way, he deserved to be fired. In the later case, a lengthy sentence is in order.
The FBI’s decision to investigate a duly elected president was arguably the most consequential investigation the FBI has ever undertaken. The man leading the investigation, who was only two levels below Director Comey, wrote notes that strongly imply that, five weeks before Comey announced the investigation (and after the FBI had engaged in months of intensive work), the FBI had nothing.

These documents make it more likely than not that Comey knew that the investigation was baseless. If he did know, and he nevertheless continued the investigation and publicly announced it, thereby deliberately and severely damaging a duly elected president, what he did was nothing less than sedition.

The fact that Comey still walks free is a troubling indication that it’s business as usual in the Swamp. When swamp rats who support Democrats break the law, they go free.

Joseph Weber at JTN reports Republican Senate panel seeking subpoenas in Biden, Ukraine Burisma probe. Hey, that's not fair! You're not allowed to investigate Democrats in an election year!

Bummer, dude, NYPo reports that Russiagate Alum and CNN's choice for president Michael Avenatti is broke, can’t afford legal fees, lawyer says
“The bottom line is that Mr. Avenatti has run out of funds, and faces a complex trial lasting as long as six weeks,” Steward wrote in a filing to the federal judge overseeing one of Avenatti’s three ongoing criminal cases.
Well, being a lawyer, he can always represent himself. You know what they say about a man who represents himself, and I think he qualifies.
