This week’s episode of The Daily Caller News Foundation’s “Alternative Facts” discussed media coverage of FBI agent Peter Strzok, a federal agent with strong anti-Trump sentiments who was intimately involved with special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation.
Prior to joining Mueller’s team, Strzok was a lead investigator on the Bureau’s investigation of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s private email server. He struck language suggesting Clinton had violated federal law from former FBI Director James Comey’s July 2016 statement exonerating Clinton of official wrongdoing.
The Department of Justice released in early December a text message Strzok exchanged with his mistress, in which he expresses disdain for President Donald Trump and eludes to anxiety about his candidacy in the highest reaches of the Bureau. His mistress was also an FBI agent. Despite their shocking contents, congressional Democrats and much of the establishment press has criticized the process by which the texts were released, suggesting the move is part of a DOJ campaign to undermine Mueller’s investigation.
The “Alt Facts” hosts also discussed incendiary propaganda relating to the repeal of net neutrality rules, that have prompted racist attacks upon Federal Communications Commission Director Ajit Pai and a bomb threat at FCC headquarters.
