Email: Peter Strzok suspected CIA hadn’t shared info with FBI, was behind inaccurate media leaks - Liberty Unyielding

Peter Strzok suspected CIA employees were behind inaccurate leaks to the press regarding possible Trump campaign contacts with Russia, according to an email the former FBI counterintelligence official sent to colleagues in April 2017.

"I'm beginning to think the agency got info a lot earlier than we thought and hasn't shared it completely with us. Might explain all these weird/seemingly incorrect leads all these media folks have. Would also highlight agency as source of some of the leaks," Strzok wrote in an email to FBI colleagues on April 13, 2017.

 Strzok's email several months later referred to another bombshell report, this one published by The Guardian.

Entitled "British spies were first to spot Trump team's links with Russia," the 2017 story claimed that British intelligence provided their American counterparts with information about possible Trump campaign contacts and Russians in late 2015.

In his email to colleagues, Strzok did not dispute The Guardian's report. But the article appears to have raised his suspicion that the CIA, which is referred to in government circles as "the agency," had intelligence that had not been shared with the FBI. Strzok believed some of that intelligence had been leaked to the media, even though it was inaccurate.
