Peter Strzok, the former agent who was fired by the FBI in 2018 after leading the Russiagate investigation, believes the agency is the real victim in the Hunter Biden case.
During an appearance on the far-left network MSNBC, Strzok said the FBI needs a special unit to investigate alleged threats against agents that some Americans believe have shown favoritism toward Hunter.
During the interview, host Nicolle Wallace gave Strzok a story suggesting the media is too “timid” in discussing “threats to terrorize people who are public servants doing their jobs.”
“In my opinion we are not doing enough,” he replied. “When push comes to shove, the FBI and DOJ must work together and protect their personnel so they can do their jobs.”
Strzok said the FBI “should be able to do its job without fear for their lives.”

Strzok: FBI needs to protect itself from people who are angry because they didn’t do their job
Strzok’s comments follow an NBC News report showing that the FBI has in fact created a special unit to investigate alleged threats in the Hunter case.
How can an entire unit of law enforcement officers be so weak that every time they look under the bed they see bogeymen?
When they’re not investigating protesters as terrorist threats, they’re going after concerned parents for the exact same fictional threat.
They think white supremacy is the biggest threat to the country, and that Trump supporters are the biggest threat to democracy. They also view Catholics as violent extremists.
And now people pointing out their biases in favor of Hunter are on their radar.
Yes, a protective squad is needed. To protect the FBI

How pathetic can the FBI be? I mean, show us on the pop, Mr. Strzok, where the Hunter critics hurt you.
NBC reports that a “dramatic increase in threats against FBI agents” has led the bureau to “create a standalone unit to investigate and mitigate them.”
Perhaps they should focus their efforts on creating a unit to investigate the real threat to America. The FBI. The DOJ. The media. And the Democratic party.
.@PeteStrzok is not satisfied with the current level of @FBI Armament. He wants a Praetorian Guard to be created to protect the Special Agent class from those pesky Americans who want to be free to wake up every morning without a SWAT team tearing down their porch https://t.co/ASOUN31UyV

NOW they want to investigate threats?
Jennifer Moore, a former executive assistant director of human resources at the FBI, told the House Judiciary Committee in June that the threats against the agency are “unprecedented.”
“We have created an entire threats unit to address the threats that FBI employee facilities receive,” she said, adding that the unit’s “sole mission on a daily basis is to threaten FBI employees.”
But they’ve been playing the victim card for a while now. Just over a year ago, the FBI whined about “unprecedented” threats against them after the Mar-a-Lago siege.
The agency was also “investigating” these threats at the time. So they certainly spend a lot of time and resources preventing attacks and investigating threats.
Except when it came to January 6th.
NBC News previously reported that former federal prosecutor Tim Heaphy, a Democrat, and the committee’s chief investigative attorney, testified that the FBI could have prevented the riot at the Capitol if they had only acted on the threats they knew about in advance goods.
“What happened at the Capitol was influenced by law enforcement’s failure to act on the ample intelligence that existed before January 6 about the threats of violence,” Heaphy said in an interview.

If only they had formed a specialized unit to conduct research. Or maybe they wanted one group to continue, and the other group really wanted to stop.
The FBI is currently littered with melodramatic self-proclaimed victims like Strzok. Protesters at the Capitol? That’s fine. We have agents embedded anyway. Randos on social media making threats from behind a keyboard? Let’s pull up our skirts like AOC and Adam Kinzinger and hide under our desks.
You may recall that Strzok claimed that the January 6 riot at the Capitol was far worse than anything that happened on September 11th.
“I think if you look at the magnitude in terms of a threat to democracy – I mean September 11 was a tragedy,” he said.
“We’ve lost thousands of lives in a horrific way, we’re still grieving to this day, but when you look at something that’s an attack on democracy, something that could actually bring about a fundamental change in American governance like we understand that – 9/11 is nothing compared to January 6,” Strzok said.
Read that again – “9/11 is nothing compared to January 6.”
Contrasting it with September 11, Nicolle Wallace claims that January 6 was “the deadliest attack on the American capital in history.”

Don’t think for a second that he’s the only former or current FBI agent who believes that.
Strzok, like many in the FBI, was damaged beyond repair by Donald Trump. That’s why she and he view his supporters as a threat.
Strzok was fired from the FBI after several text messages to his mistress, former FBI attorney Lisa Page, showed explicit bias against the then-sitting president.
A resignation letter from then-FBI Deputy Director David Bowdich, released by President Joe Biden’s Justice Department, supported his firing.
“As I considered all the known facts related to the adjudication of your case, it was difficult to imagine another incident like yours that brought so much disrepute to the organization,” Bowdich wrote.
Now the organization discredits itself every day with its own actions.
Now is the time to support and share the resources you trust.
