Another Swamp Rat Named

trump-drain-the-swampPreceding OpenCdA posts have opined that President Trump’s swamp draining should start in the Mahogany Row floors of both the Robert F. Kennedy Department of Justice Building and the J. Edgar Hoover F.B.I. Building.

Today a Washington Post skewspaper article headlined Top FBI official assigned to Mueller’s Russia probe said to have been removed after sending anti-Trump texts identified the “Top FBI official” as Peter Strzok, deputy head of counterintelligence at the FBI.  OpenCdA believes Strzok’s correct title was Deputy Chief, Counterintelligence Section.   Strzok was removed earlier this summer but identified publicly only recently.

OpenCdA is concerned about the “politically charged texts disparaging President Trump and supporting Hillary Clinton” Strzok exchanged with another member of Mueller’s team.  However, we are equally concerned about  Strzok’s extramarital affair with FBI lawyer Lisa Page, who worked for FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe.

This was the most laughable paragraph in the skews article:

Defenders of Strzok and Page inside the FBI said that because there was no direct supervisory role between Page and Strzok in the workplace, there wasn’t anything professionally wrong about having an affair, but they added that they understood why Mueller would not want anyone engaged in such conduct on his team. For one thing, if a foreign intelligence agency learned of such an affair, they could try to use it as a means of blackmail, although there’s no evidence anyone outside the FBI was aware of the relationship.

As any intelligence service case officer knows and Strzok should have known,  an “extramarital affair” can fit both the “C” and the “E” in M.I.C.E.   If Strzok and his “defenders” don’t believe the Russian SVR might have had an inkling, they should be forced to sit through every counterespionage public service video the Feebs have ever produced.  And we certainly don’t agree that “there wasn’t anything professionally wrong” with it.

Strzok was one of the high-level Feebs running the Feeble’s investigation into Hillary Clinton’s private email server.     Hillary Clinton isn’t the only one who wonders “What Happened.”


  1. Apparently the link to M.I.C.E is no longer available.

  2. Tributary,

    I just clicked on it, and it worked fine for me.

    Try this one. The Robert Hanssen link included in the post, however, is dead. Killed by YouTube.

  3. Ha, it worked for me. I just made the mistake of presuming, since I have grown use to your linking to indepth analyses, that there was some deeper discussion than just “Money – Ideology – Compromise (or Coercion) – Ego (or Extortion).”

  4. Tributary,

    Never let it be said that I passed up a perfectly good opportunity to keep my mouth shut or my keyboard turned off.

    Take a look at my OpenCdA post dated January 26, 2014. It was entitled “From MICE to RASCLS”.

    Now, aren’t you sorry you encouraged the blather monster out of his CAVE?
