The credibility of the FBI has been in flux for some time, as the American people reel from scandal after scandal emanating from deep within the Bureau.
Of course, to be fair, the FBI has always been at least a little bit shady. It’s in their nature. They do the dirty work that the rest of us would rather be spared the details about.
For fans of Breaking Bad, the FBI is supposed to operate a bit like Mike: Undoubtedly criminal and undeniably sneaky, but reliable and loyal to the death. Filthy unsung hero-types, really. Instead, what we’ve discovered is that this supposedly prestigious spook factory is no different from any other government institution, and the character of their employees certainly isn’t held to some higher standard.
As adulterous lovers/FBI employees Lisa Page and Peter Strzok proved with their heavily anti-Trump dialogue, the bureau itself seemed out to get the President through Robert Mueller.
And this claim of bias seems easy to back up, as we now learn that Lisa Page herself had worked for the Clintons in some regard.
Page, who exchanged tens of thousands of texts with disgraced FBI official Peter Strzok, revealed the information in one message among a new batch exclusively obtained by Fox News.
“Get inspired and depressing reading that article about how Obama approached the mail room,” Page wrote Strzok on Jan. 19, 2017 – the last day of the Obama administration. “Needless to say, it was very different when I interned there under Clinton.”
The article they were discussing was a Jan. 17, 2017 story in the New York Times Magazine entitled “To Obama With Love, and Hate, and Desperation,” which described eight years of mail that poured through the mailroom.
In the text message exchange, Strzok tried to engage Page in a discussion about her time in the internship.
“How was it different?” he replied.
“Will have to talk in person,” answered Page. “It’s hard to describe. More of a rote have to respond to the mail exercise.”
No further details regarding Page’s previous employment have been made available as of yet, but we can imagine that some sort of explanation will be forthcoming.
