Peter Strzok's Lawfare Article
And Why I'm Wasting Only This Minimal Amount Of Time On It
There’s enough serious stuff going on in the world that I really don’t want to waste time on Peter Strzok. As far as the Russia Hoax goes, most of what’s being written at this point is speculative—simply because Durham is being very careful. We can speculate that this is partly because he doesn’t want to prematurely flag future moves, but the fact remains that, in the wake of the indictment and the mostly pro forma motion for a bill of particulars, we have no new solid facts to work with. Researchers are digging up old facts and placing them within the new context that the indictment provides. That’s useful, but only up to a point. We still need to be patient.
In the meantime, of course, defendants and potential defendants are spinning, and Lisa Monaco’s DoJ is attempting to sabotage Durham’s prosecution at an early stage, but we can’t see any effect so far. The only takeaway at this point is that the Russia Hoax conspirators are, rightly, alarmed. And they have the best perspective on this of anyone.
The most recent attempt at spin came from the loathsome and disgraced former FBI official Peter Strzok. Strzok wrote a ridiculous article for, naturally, the Lawfare Blog. Strzok attempts to blame Trump and Durham for somehow damaging national security—and to exonerate Sussmann and himself while portraying himself as some sort of professional. I won’t even address what he has to say because the article is already fading into the obscurity that it deserves. The guy is a disgrace.
Shipwreckedcrew dismisses the article in fine style, as it deserves to be dismissed, and I’ll leave it at that:
