Fired FBI Strzok Claims FBI 'Overworked' In Obama FISA Fraud


Peter Strzok defends FBI against FISA abuse allegations, says agents were ‘overworked’ - Liberty Unyielding

Strzok, who was fired from the FBI in August 2018, had repeated contacts with both Clinesmith and Somma. Strzok was also aware of negative information about Steele, but failed to communicate it to the CIA or to the FISA Court, according to the IG report.

Strzok oversaw the Trump-Russia investigation, dubbed Crossfire Hurricane, and drafted the paperwork that authorized opening the probe on July 31, 2016. He also lobbied aggressively to obtain the initial FISA warrant against Page, which was granted on Oct. 21, 2016.

Strzok sent an email on Oct. 14, 2016 entitled "Crossfire FISA" suggesting that then-FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe needed to contact the Justice Department to help authorize the FISA.

 The IG found 17 "significant" errors in the FISA applications, including omissions of exculpatory evidence and failure to investigating information in the infamous Steele dossier.

"I don't think at all that it's anything improper. You get people who are overworked, who make mistakes — and don't get me wrong, inexcusable mistakes," Strzok said in an interview with "CBS Sunday Morning."

Strzok, the former FBI deputy chief of counterintelligence, was asked about a Justice Department inspector general's report that blasted the FBI for a series of errors and omissions in applications for Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrants against Carter Page.
