Peter Strzok: Russia is trying to help Trump again, like in 2016

“I don’t think at all that it’s anything improper,” Peter Strzok, the former FBI deputy chief of counterintelligence, said in an interview with “CBS Sunday Morning.” “You get people who are overworked, who make mistakes — and don’t get me wrong, inexcusable mistakes.”

“Nobody had any joy in doing this. Nobody was seeking to try and open that case,” continued Strzok.

What Russia is doing, what they did in 2016 to attack our election, to help Trump, what they are doing now to do the very same thing is something every American ought to be thinking about and considering

Peter Strzok, on “CBS Sunday Morning”

Excerpt from “CBS Sunday Morning” transcript:

From July 21, 2016, before the election: “Trump is a disaster.”

“And then, one week later, you opened that Crossfire Hurricane investigation,” Martin said. “I mean, it just looks like you saw a way to stop Donald Trump from becoming President of the United States.”

“I can understand why some people might think that,” Strzok said. “But they had nothing to do with each other.”

One week after Strzok opened the investigation, Lisa Page texted him:

Page: “(Trump’s) not ever going to become President, right?
Strzok: “No. No he’s not. We’ll stop it.”

Martin asked, “So, why shouldn’t Trump supporters suspect you of using the investigation as a tool to take him down?”

“What I’d point them to are all the investigations that have been done that have conclusively proved that didn’t occur,” he replied.

Martin asked Strzok, “How does it feel to be in Donald Trump’s crosshairs?”

He replied, “It’s horrible. It angers you. It scares you.”

That hasn’t stopped Strzok from putting one of the president’s tweets (“Peter Strzok is a fraud”) on the cover of his book.

“You know, it’s going to put you back in the crosshairs,” said Martin.

“I do.”

“Is it gonna be worth it?”

“Yes,” Strtzok replied. “David, this is a threat that we have not faced in our modern history. What Russia is doing, what they did in 2016 to attack our election, to help Trump, what they are doing now to do the very same thing is something every American ought to be thinking about and considering.”

Kyle Rittenhouse Found ‘Not Guilty’ On All Counts

Rittenhouse

After three and a half days of deliberation, the jury acquitted Kyle Rittenhouse on all counts. “Jurors in the polarizing case said they had voted to acquit Rittenhouse, 18, of homicide, attempted homicide and other charges related to the August 2020 shootings in Kenosha, Wisconsin” reports The Washington Post.

Rittenhouse testified during the trial during which he  became so emotional he was unable to speak in between sobs as he attempted to describe the shootings. The judge called a brief recess for Rittenhouse to regain composure.

“I didn’t do anything wrong,” Rittenhouse said on the stand. “I defended myself.”

National Review reports “As the verdict was announced, Rittenhouse, overwhelmed with emotion, burst into tears and dropped to the ground, struggling to breathe. After collecting himself, he embraced the defense counsel who represented him throughout the trial.”

Rittenhouse, who was 17 at the time, shot and killed Joseph Rosenbaum, 36, and Anthony Huber, 26, and injured Gaige Grosskreutz, who was 26 at the time. Rittenhouse testified that he fired in self-defense and pleaded not guilty to all counts.

National Review reports:

“Rittenhouse was arrested on August 26, 2020, after shooting three people during the riots that followed the police killing of Jacob Blake, a black man who was brandishing a knife and in the process of violating a restraining order when police arrived on scene.

He was initially indicted on charges of first-degree intentional homicide, first-degree reckless homicide, attempted first-degree intentional reckless homicide, failure to comply with an emergency order from a local government, and possession of a dangerous weapon.”
