Disgraced FBI Agent Peter Strzok Didn’t Tell Trump Campaign About Investigation

Catherine Herridge of Fox News reports:

A mid-August 2016 counterintelligence briefing for the Trump campaign did not specifically warn officials about Russian outreach to the Trump team, nor did it warn that two campaign aides, Mike Flynn and George Papadopoulos, were already under FBI investigation, Fox News has learned.
The new details about the so-called “defensive briefing” have emerged from congressional letters, text messages between FBI agent Peter Strzok and lawyer Lisa Page, and sources familiar with the matter. Such briefings are designed to warn the candidate and his team about national security threats.
“There was a defensive briefing of candidate Trump on Aug. 17 of 2016,” Texas Rep. John Ratcliffe, a member of the House Judiciary Committee, said Thursday on Fox News’ “America’s Newsroom.” “And I can tell you what he wasn’t told: He wasn’t warned about a Russia investigation that Peter Strzok had opened 18 days earlier.”
Strzok, who was later removed from Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigative team for sending anti-Trump texts, was a central coordinator for the FBI on the defensive briefing, which included multiple agencies. Three weeks earlier, Strzok opened an FBI counterintelligence investigation into campaign aide George Papadopoulos.

People who get their news from CNN and MSNBC have no idea about any of the shady stuff relating to the origins of the “Russia collusion” hoax. Fox is the only network that is covering this story, and the average Democrat doesn’t have any inkling of what was going on with the Steele dossier and the various ways that people like Carter Page, Michael Flynn and George Papadopoulos were targeted by what looks very much like entrapment — an effort to manufacture the appearance of “collusion” in order to justify surveillance of the Trump campaign. U.S. intelligence and law-enforcement officials at the highest levels must have approved this operation, and therefore the real scandal is not what Trump did, but rather what the Obama administration did. CNN and MSNBC are attempting to conceal this scandal from their viewers, and thus damaging their own credibility as news organizations.
