Declassification And Other FBI Powers Demanded By Strzok Before Joining Mueller Witch Hunt

on

Anti-Trump FBI agent Peter Strzok DEMANDED he keep his security clearance, and all the powers he held while he was the deputy assistant director of the FBI before he joined the Special Counsel “Witch Hunt”  headed by Robert Mueller emails show. These emails could be the key that brings down the Mueller investigation of President Donald Trump colluded with Russia.

The emails were obtained by Judicial Watch ( A watchdog group ) revealed Peter Strzok’s boss agreed to make him a floating deputy that would be able to approve national security letters and declassify some documents. Strzok would be able to do all of this while working on the Meuller team to bring down President Trump. The main goal of Strok was to make sure Donald Trump went to prison on false allegations that he colluded with Russia, and put Americans in harm’s way. What Strzok didn’t know was he was being carefully watched by groups like Judicial Watch, and other Watch Dog groups.

“Broadly, I need to be able to act at least in the capacity of my old CD [counterintelligence division] DAD [deputy assistant director] job – approve NSLs [national security letters], conduct [redacted] declassify information, [redacted] agent travel, requisitions, etc. Of those, the most problematic and one of the most essential is declassification authority,” Strzok wrote in an email to Bill Priestap, FBI counterintelligence chief, dated July 13, 2017.

Priestap wrote back a few days later, saying his request was approved: “In answer to your initial question, while assigned to the special counsel’s office, you will retain your CD DAD authorities to include declassification authority.”

“Assuming the 7th floor approves, you will remain on CD’s books as a fourth (floating) DAD. When you move on from your DAD position, your DAD slot will revert back to HRD [human resources department],” he added.

Strzok’s insistence on keeping the declassification authority raises concerns whether such authority gave the Mueller investigation special capabilities to target President Trump.

“It sure did,” Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton told Fox News. “Strzok wouldn’t have asked for it if he didn’t think it’d be useful in his new job.”

“He wanted the authority to issue national security letters, which essentially are secret requests for information that fall short of needing court approval,” Fitton continued. “He also wanted – and he said this was ‘essential,’ which is very unusual – he wanted the ability to declassify information. He wanted to keep that ability.”

The FBI agent has been under fire ever since he was removed in the summer of 2017 after he exchanged tens of thousands of texts with then-colleague Lisa Page, with whom he had an extramarital affair, and expressed anti-Trump comments, raising questions of bias.

“[Trump’s] not ever going to become president, right? Right?!” Page texted to Strzok in August 2016, months before Trump won the presidential election. “No. No he won’t. We’ll stop it,” Strzok responded.

Last month, the FBI agent testified before Congress, denying his personal views affected his job as an investigator.

“Like many people, I had and expressed personal political opinions during an extraordinary presidential election. Many contained expressions of concern for the security of our country,” Strzok said in his opening statement, noting that those opinions were expressed “out of deep patriotism.” He also later denied that the FBI would interfere in the election to stop one particular candidate. “The suggestion that I, in some dark chamber in the FBI, would somehow cast aside these procedures … and somehow be able to do this is astounding to me,” he said. -Fox News
