Peter Strzok was at the center of both the FBI’s investigation of Hillary Clinton’s private email server and the agency’s probe into possible collusion between President Trump’s campaign and Russia.
The release of text messages about President Trump between Strzok and his alleged FBI girlfriend Lisa Page shows a political bias against the president.
A story in The Daily Caller incorporates the text messages in a timeline of both the Clinton and Trump investigations.
Strzok’s texts do show that he made politically-charged comments right in the midst of his work leading both the Clinton and Russia investigations. Here is a definitive timeline of his investigative work, the text messages, and developments in both the Clinton email and Trump collusion investigations:
July 10, 2015 — FBI opens the Clinton email investigation in response to a referral from the Intelligence Community Inspector General.
Feb. 27, 2016 — Strzok interviews Jake Sullivan, a former Clinton State Department aide and adviser to her campaign.
March 2 — Asked by Page who he planned to vote for, Strzok replied: “I suppose Hillary.”
March 4 — Strzok writes to Page of Trump: “Omg he’s an idiot.” He says that a Trump victory in the GOP primaries will be “good for Hillary.”
“God Hillary should win. 100,000,000-0,” Strzok writes.
The timeline ends on December 12, 2017, with the release of Strzok’s text messages.
The timeline provides context to Strzok’s text messages allowing readers to draw their own conclusion about political bias.
