The Mueller probe has tried to keep its pro-Hillary political bias under wraps. Now the cat’s out of the bag.
Peter Strzok, the FBI agent who was removed from the Special Counsel for sending anti-Trump text messages to a colleague, was known to have interviewed Hillary Clinton aides and even the former Secretary of State herself during the FBI’s investigation into her use of a private email server.
But Strzok also oversaw the FBI’s interviews of former National Security Advisor Mike Flynn, Circa journalist Sarah Carter reported on Monday. Flynn on Friday pleaded guilty to lying to FBI about his conversations with Russian officials after the 2016 presidential election.
The news raises questions about both the FBI and the Mueller team’s political biases. The Clinton aides Strzok interviewed, Cheryl Mills and Huma Abedin, were also found to have lied to the FBI–but were not charged as Flynn was.
Reports on FBI interview transcripts by the Daily Caller show that both Mills and Abedin claimed to have no knowledge of Clinton’s private email server.
“Mills did not learn Clinton was using a private server until after Clinton’s [Department of State] tenure,” read the summary from the aide’s interviews with Strzok.”Mills stated she was not even sure she knew what a server was at the time.”
A summary of Strzok’s interviews with Abedin states: “Abedin did not know that Clinton had a private server until about a year and a half ago when it became public knowledge.”
But their statements are contradicted by email transcripts from as early as 2010, which demonstrate that both aides were aware of the server.
In a 2010 email to Abedin and Justin Cooper–a longtime Bill Clinton aide who helped setup the server–Mills wrote “hrc email coming back — is server okay?”
Mills and Abedin were also involved in a 2011 email exchange in which State Department official Stephen Mull wrote that Clinton’s “email server is down.”
This raises the question: if Mike Flynn faced charges and ultimately pleaded guilty for lying to the FBI, why were no similar actions taken against Clinton’s aides, who clearly and demonstrably lied–not only to the FBI, but to the same FBI official who interviewed Flynn.
Something suspect is taking place in the Mueller probe, and Americans are catching on.
