Grassley Examines Reports of Biased FBI Agent in Russia Probe

Mueller removed agent over anti Trump texts

"You have these people that bring their anti-Trump bias to the Mueller investigation", said Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.), speaking to Fox News host Laura Ingraham.

Senate Intelligence Chairman Richard Burr, R-N.C., said Wednesday that the Republicans and Democrats on his committee and their staffs are still working well together.

This week, the ball is in the Democrats' court after the Republicans scored some wicked backhand shots.

"It is time for him to show the type of leadership to make sure the American people get the answers they deserve, because we cannot allow the highest law enforcement agency in the land to actually be in a situation where they allow partisanship to determine who is actually not only guilty or innocent, but certainly we can't allow it to happen when indeed it should be a nonpartisan, non-biased way", Meadows said. The findings could compromise the Trump probe, which is exactly what many Republicans are aiming for. He said there still could be separate majority and minority opinions interpreting those facts and what they mean for the Trump administration.

Bruce G. Ohr served as associate deputy attorney general, a post near his supervisor, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein; and also as director of the Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Forces.

Earlier that day, Trump had fired Yates for refusing to defend the travel ban.

"I am so proud". "Thank you so much. All my deepest respect". The FBI and Mueller also refuse to release to Congress the actual texts that were sent by Strzok to his lady love.

The streak of good luck for the Republicans did not end there. Not only was Strzok an anti-Trumper, he may have played a key role in keeping Hillary Clinton out of jail.

Former FBI director James Comey concluded last summer that Clinton had been "extremely careless" in her handling of classified emails, but he said her actions were not criminal. The meeting occurred just days before Comey announced that Hillary Clinton would not be charged.

Republicans are now coming out in force in an effort to knock the Mueller investigation off the tracks.

So far, however, the Mueller investigation has not shown any ties between the Trump campaign and the Russian government.

The Flynn indictment contains no evidence of collusion with Russian Federation.

Fox News, too, has drilled down on the Strzok story, with one headline on Thursday emphasizing the "over 10,000" sent messages between Mueller's team, and The Wall Street Journal editorial page joined the chorus, questioning Mueller's "credibility problem". "Mueller is frankly a disgrace to the American justice system and has put the country on the brink of becoming a banana republic".

The latest bombshell revelations include high-ranking staffers at the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

"The communications between members of the Clinton email investigation team raise questions about the integrity of that investigation, and about the objectivity of Mr. Strzok's work for the special counsel and in the FBI's investigation of Mr. Flynn", Grassley wrote to Wray, referring to former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn.
