We the people need answers

FBI agent Peter Strzok texted a colleague, Lisa Page, saying “I want to believe the path you threw out for consideration in Andy’s office (Deputy Director Andrew McCabe) that there’s no way he (Trump) gets elected, but I’m afraid we can’t take that risk. It’s like an insurance policy in the unlikely event you die before you’re 40.”

He also changed the words “grossly negligent” (a crime) to “extremely careless” in then-FBI Director Comey’s unauthorized exoneration of Clinton’s handling of classified material where her testimony wasn’t recorded and she wasn’t made to testify under oath.

Justice Department official Bruce Ohr secretly met with the founder of Fusion GPS, the firm who hired Ohr’s wife to compile the anti-Trump dossier Director Comey said was “salacious and unverified.” This opposition research was paid for by the Hillary Clinton campaign and Democratic National Committee. The FBI allegedly offered to pay for the dossier’s corroboration which didn’t happen. These facts have been known since this past summer, and if it wasn’t for Inspector General Michael Horowitz and others seeking truth, we’d still be in the dark.

The new FBI Director, Christopher Wray, has refused to say if the dossier was used to get warrants to spy on Trump and his associates, and Robert Rosenstein, Deputy Attorney General for the Justice Department, won’t say if the FBI paid for the dossier. It’s clear the FBI and Justice Department aren’t cooperating with Congress who oversees them.

We the people need answers. Did people in the FBI and Justice Department collude to clear Clinton of wrongdoing so she could run for president, and did they plot to dump Trump if he was elected? If so, our government has been politicized and our democracy undermined, which is much more serious than Watergate where Republicans were caught burglarizing the Democratic Party’s headquarters.

A special prosecutor, not associated with government, has to be appointed, and we have to impanel a grand jury presided by a judge who won’t hesitate to jail anyone who redacts one word of requested information or delays divulging it by a minute. This needs to be done now if not sooner.

Respectfully your knuckle-dragging, Bible-banging, flag-waving neighbor,
