By The Daily Caller. Attorney General Jeff Sessions said Thursday that former FBI official Peter Strzok has lost his security clearance amid an internal disciplinary review.
“Mr. Strzok, as I understand, has lost his security clearance,” Sessions told radio host Howie Carr.
Strzok was escorted out of FBI headquarters on Friday, the day after the Department of Justice’s Office of the Inspector General (OIG) released its long-awaited report about the FBI’s handling of the Hillary Clinton email investigation.
Strzok, who served as deputy chief of counterintelligence, was one of the top investigators on the Clinton probe and the investigation into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian government.
While on the investigations, Strzok and his mistress, an FBI lawyer named Lisa Page, exchanged numerous anti-Trump text messages. (Read more from “Peter Strzok Has Lost His Security Clearance” HERE)
Sen. Lindsey Graham Asks Horowitz If Strzok or Mccabe Misled Investigators
By Fox News. Sen. Lindsey Graham is calling on the Justice Department to set the record straight about an alleged meeting involving then-FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, agent Peter Strzok and attorney Lisa Page, in which “an insurance policy” against a possible Trump victory in the 2016 election purportedly was discussed.
In a letter obtained by Fox News, Graham, R-S.C., formally asked Inspector General Michael Horowitz to resolve conflicting statements about a meeting discussed in text messages between Strzok and Page, his colleague and lover.
In a text from Strzok to Page dated Aug. 15, 2016, the pair discussed “an insurance policy” in the event that Donald Trump went on to win the presidential election.
“I want to believe the path you threw out for consideration in Andy’s office – that there’s no way he gets elected – but I’m afraid we can’t take the risk. It’s like an insurance policy in the unlikely event you die before you’re 40,” the text read. (Read more from “Sen. Lindsey Graham Asks Horowitz If Strzok or Mccabe Misled Investigators” HERE)
