When it comes to legalese, sometimes a small turn of phrase can make a big, big difference.
So when Hillary Clinton’s handling of classified information was described by then-FBI Director James Comey as “extremely careless” instead of “grossly negligent,” which had reportedly been in the original draft language, it was the difference between mere criticism and actual criminal penalties for the then-Democratic presidential nominee.
Until Monday, we knew a change had been made but we didn’t know who had actually suggested it, given that such drafts are team efforts and get input from a lot of people.
But now, thanks to a CNN source, we finally know the name of the FBI agent who suggested that change – Peter Strzok, the very same agent who was just removed from Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation for “anti-Trump bias.”
Folks, you can’t make this stuff up.
Strzok became the focus of national criticism, and a posterchild of investigative partisanship, when it was reported that he wrote emails to another agent mocking President Trump and was subsequently dismissed from the Russia probe.
Even President Trump used his Twitter account to bash the agent:
Turns out, Strzok was also the FBI official who signed the original document that launched the Russian meddling investigation in the first place, CNN reported.
Is this an anomaly or indicative of a larger pattern of partisanship and corruption? Time will tell, but it doesn’t look good for the supposedly ‘non-partisan’ Mueller investigative team.
Plenty of Twitter users weighed in on the recent developments:
It is HIGHLY likely that Strzok interviewed Manafort, Papadopoulos, and Flynn.
If true, all of those cases are tainted and the two guilty pleas should be tossed.
Could this be why Mueller and FBI withheld the reason for Strzok’s reassignment from Congress?

FBI Agent Peter Strzok:
-Fired for documented anti-Trump bias
-Interviewed Hillary & changed language in report to "extreme carelessness"
-Involved In Trump Dossier investigation
-Robert Mueller knew about this & hid it from the American people. 🤔

They're trying to make us think this Strozk guy was a one man army against Trump. He did not operate in a vacuum. THE ENTIRE CABAL is guilty https://t.co/24ECjKSm0P

Deep State sabotage … read the entire thread. The FBI, Mueller, Comey, Rosenstein, McCabe, Peter Strozk … all culpable in pushing the Russia dossier/collusion/investigation, unmasking & protecting HRC. https://t.co/b5nb7PHeUV
