New Book By Ted Cruz Details FBI, DOJ Corruption

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) recently published a new book detailing the deep layers of anti-Trump corruption running through the FBI and Dept. of Justice.

In the revealing book, Cruz accounts for the politically-motivated investigations launched by the FBI, such as Operation Crossfire Hurricane. The FBI led similar investigations into former President Donald Trump’s former national security advisor Michael Flynn and Trump’s former campaign manager Paul Manafort.

Cruz explains that the FBI sought warrants to spy on its political targets from the outset of the investigation. When they were initially denied by the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISA), the FBI presented the infamous Steele Dossier and received the warrants to spy on Trump and his allies.

Even with the FISA warrants, the FBI failed to gather evidence to link Trump to Russia, but the bureau persisted in its quest to destroy Trump’s chances for election.

In a recent article announcing the book, Cruz compared the FBI’s investigations into Trump and his advisors to G. Gordon Liddy’s Operation Gemstone, a plan to undermine the 1972 presidential election.

Cruz also explained the motivation to take down Trump.

“The intelligence community saw President Trump as an existential threat — someone who would come from the outside and shake things up,” Cruz wrote. “He needed to be taken down at any cost.”

The agency’s motive becomes glaringly clear upon review of a text message exchange between former FBI agent Peter Strzok and Agent Lisa Page, both of whom played major roles in Operation Crossfire Hurricane.

The two agents, who were having an affair at the time, repeatedly texted one another with anti-Trump sentiments.

“[Trump’s] not ever going to become president, right? Right?!” wrote Page in August 2016, shortly after she joined the operation.

“No. No he won’t,” replied Strzok. “We’ll stop it.”

In another series of texts between the two FBI agents, Strzok asked if Trump would be “a worse president than Cruz.” Page responded by calling Trump “awful” and “an idiot.”

As for Cruz, he said he takes no offense from the comparison.

“If Peter Strzok and Lisa Page didn’t like me at the time, I must have been doing something right,” he wrote.
