Former FBI agent Peter Strzok was the FBI’s top Russian counterintelligence agent for more than two decades until he became one of President Trump’s favorite targets to attack. He received the wrath of Trump because of his part in the law enforcement agency’s investigation into Russia’s meddling in the 2016 election.
Peter Strzok has done his best to keep quiet even as President Trump and his minions have painted him as a corrupt partisan who was determined to frame Trump as a Russian asset. They unfairly and continually threaten him with a criminal incitement. Strzok has published his new book “Compromised: Counterintelligence and the Threat of Donald J. Trump” and decided to end his silence and expose why the President of the United States has so desperately been trying to destroy his credibility.
In his new book Strzok came right out and stated boldly he could have destroyed President Donald Trump during the 2016 campaign, but he was not willing to violate his oath by revealing classified intelligence. During an interview with MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” Strzok said Trump’s 2020 campaign could be destroyed if the information he knows were declassified.
Strzok said during his interview on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe”….
“There are things that are not known that would still be damaging,” “The decision to release that is up to the administration. You’ve seen them declassify the material, which unsurprisingly tends to all be helpful to President Trump. There’s a lot of material that is classified and that I can’t talk about, but it’s there.”
“The American public has a right to know it, but that is a decision for the administration to do. I can’t go declassifying information,” he added. “I’m going to honor my oath to both the office that I held, as well as the security clearance that I held. That information, the American public deserves it, and the administration, frankly, deserves to have that known, as well.”
Strzok, during his Morning Joe interview, said the FBI knew Trump was lying in 2016 when he denied having financial interests in Russia. Still, he said the President’s entanglement went much more in-depth than negotiating a high-rise tower in Moscow.
Strzok went on to say…
“If you look at the scope of his businesses relationship to Russia, going back decades, if you look at the statement by one of his sons about the disproportionate amount of Russian holdings that represented the Trump financial assets, all of these things speak to an ability of Russian interests, of illicit interests, to hold him under their sway and get him to do things that, frankly, we can’t explain.”
“Why isn’t he speaking out against Russia placing the bounties on the heads of American soldiers in Afghanistan?”
“Why isn’t he pushing back against, as you mentioned, the attempted assassination of [Alexei] Navalny? Why is he talking about withdrawing from NATO, from withdrawing 11,000 troops from Germany? The list goes on and on and on. None of these things are in America’s interest. Most, if not all, are in Russia’s. It begs the question, why is he doing this?
My answer insisted Strzok…
“What I believe is, because there is leverage Russia holds over him that is causing him to act in his rather than America’s national security interest.”
Strzok insists there is evidence being hidden by President Trump and his administration, including the FBI, that would destroy his re-election chances if it were made public. Strzok, however, can’t divulge the hidden evidence without breaking the law and violating his oath. He, however, is pointing to a broad spectrum of business dealings with Russia that Trump doesn’t want the American people to know, and Russia is using it to leverage him to doing things in his best interest and not the best interest of our country.
