Former Clinton Advisor Refuses To Acknowledge Former FBI Agents Strzok And Page Had A ‘Media Leaking Strategy’
Former Clinton advisor Richard Goodstein refused to acknowledge that former that FBI agents Peter Strzok and Lisa Page partook in a media leaking strategy as described in a major report by the Washington Post on Tucker Carlson Tonight on Tuesday.
“The context leaves one thing crystal clear which is, Page and Strzok were part of a media leaking strategy, leaking information about investigations they were privy to to the press. And my question is, are you — this is a really simple question, are you comfortable with it? — It’s okay, I know you don’t like Trump but it’s okay to say you are not comfortable with that because it’s contrary to our constitutional order, correct?” Carlson asked.
Goodstein responded, “You’re saying, let’s assume the sun rises in the west and then having a bunch of questions predicated on that.”
The text messages from Strozk and Page they were discussing came to light on Monday when Rep. Mark Meadows sent a letter to Assistant Attorney General Rod Rosenstein. The letter to Rosenstein stated that Strzok referenced a “media leak strategy” before a bombshell report was released by the Washington Post about the FBI obtaining FISA warrants against Carter Page.

“So I want to know what you are saying and I’ll let you finish. Are you saying that these texts do not suggest that Strzok and Paige had a hand in leaking information to the press?” Carlson shot back.
“I’m saying any fair inference they’re talking about the DOJ changing their media policy, and they are talking about the media reg policy, and the one that Mark Meadows references in his letter to Rosenstein, it comes after that,” continued.
