(Tony Sifert, Headline USA) Although it has been dismissed by many as a political fishing expedition, some speculate that the FBI’s unprecedented raid on former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate may be covering up a more sinister operation that could link the CIA to illegal domestic surveillance and other seditious conspiracies.
According to the Gateway Pundit, the Aug. 8 raid may have been an attempt to conceal the role that fired intelligence operative Peter Strzok played in the deep state’s effort to destroy Trump.
It suggested that the corrupt agent, who was presumed to be working for the FBI, may in fact have been a CIA plant.
The Gateway Pundit cited the remarkable lack of evidence regarding Strzok’s affiliation with the FBI as evidence that he was—or is—a CIA agent who worked “under the FBI to allow the CIA to operate in the US.”
“There is no evidence that Peter Strzok ever worked or served in any FBI field office,” Gateway Pundit wrote. “Nor is there any evidence that Strzok attended the FBI academy in Quantico, Virginia,” wrote Pundit contributing editor Joe Hoft.
Hoft further alleged that the FBI’s “Crossfire Hurricane” investigation into Russian collusion “was a political operation by the CIA disguised as an FBI operation.”
Strzok and his former mistress, FBI attorney Lisa Page, referred in their amorous text messages to the meeting of a “secret society” ahead of the 2016 presidential election that appears to have been organized in London at the direction of then-CIA Director John Brennan.
Trump publicly announced on the final day of his presidency that he intended to declassify all materials related to the Russia conspiracy, although questions remain as to whether the DOJ intentionally defied the order.
Journalist William Arkin, a former Army intelligence analyst, said in an article for Newsweek that anonymous sources “close to the investigation” had told him the FBI’s target in the Mar-a-Lago raid was a “private stash” of documents having to do with the agency’s role in the Russia hoax, “which Justice Department officials feared Donald Trump might weaponize.”
Since the FBI’s Mar-a-Lago raid, Strzok has been making the rounds in the corporate media to lend his dubious authority to the DOJ/FBI investigation.
That includes posting outlandish conspiracy theories on Twitter alleging that Trump has dual citizenship in the United States and Russia.
Please oh please keep asking how you can turn down the temperature in the country.
And why does he have two passports?
The Russian passport, of course, is kept in a vault at Yasenevo and only swapped out at third country meets, so it can't be that one. pic.twitter.com/Hbk8iL39Ax

Disgraced former Republican congressman Joe Scarborough—who maintains strong ties to the deep-state through his wife and co-host, Mika Brzezinski, the daughter of former Carter administration national security adviser Zbigniew Brzezinski—also invited Strzok onto MSNBC’s Morning Joe show so that the latter could praise the objectivity of the FBI.

“It’s not that the FBI is targeting any one side or the other,” Strzok told Scarborough. “What you see is the FBI going out on a day-in and day-out basis objectively investigating allegations of law.”
In another interview, with CNN’s Jim Acosta, Strzok absurdly claimed that Hillary Clinton underwent a far more serious investigation in her capacity as secretary of State when questions were raised about the private email server that she used to conduct government (and Clinton Foundation) business.
“I spent a year and a half working on Hillary Clinton’s e-mail server where we executed multiple search warrants,” Strzok said. “I never heard one Republican once raise a finger talking about how we were using Gestapo tactics or overreaching.”

Clinton was allowed over the course of that investigation to use BleachBit software on the server, handing over only a select number of emails that were personally curated by her advisers, even though Congress had already subpoenaed the records. She then hired a henchman to physically destroy Blackberry devices that might contain compromising information.
Strzok, who was discovered in the course of investigating the Russia hoax to harbor deep partisan biases against Trump and his supporters, never appears to have recommended charges against Clinton, the 2016 Democrat presidential candidate.
During a deposition, the FBI provided questions in advance to Clinton and allowed her attorneys to be present for the interrogation. After meeting secretly with former President Bill Clinton, then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch punted the case to FBI Director James Comey, who announced shortly thereafter that Clinton would not be indicted.
