Stunning texts implicate Pence’s former chief-of-staff as a mole to ‘infiltrate’ WH admin. Trump sounds off!

Newly uncovered evidence suggests that disgraced former FBI special agent Peter Strzok and his paramour, former disgraced FBI lawyer Lisa Page, attempted in 2016 to recruit then-Trump transition member Josh Pitcock, who later went on to serve as Vice President Mike Pence’s chief of staff through early 2017, to help them in their surveillance efforts of President Donald Trump and his transition team.

Earlier this month Attorney General Bill Barr revealed to Congress that he intends to examine the FBI’s 2016 election surveillance efforts to determine whether the bureau’s indisputable surveillance of Trump’s election campaign and transition team officials had been on the up and up.

In a bid to assist Barr in his examination, this week two GOP Senate leaders submitted a letter to the AG that contained previously unrevealed texts from Strzok and Page.

“[I]n the course of our oversight work we have reviewed certain text messages that may show potential attempts by the FBI to conduct surveillance of President-elect Trump’s transition team,” Senate Finance Committee chairman Sen. Charles Grassley and Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee chair Sen. Ron Johnson wrote in their letter to Barr.

In these texts from November 2016, Strzok and Page can be seen discussing recruiting the husband of someone named “Katie” to determine whether there were any officials within Trump’s transition team that the duo could “develop for potential relationships.”

While the identity of “Katie” isn’t revealed in the texts, renowned investigative reporter Sara Carter suspects that she may be Katherine Seaman, the wife of Pitcock.

According to Carter’s sources, Seaman worked “as an analyst for Strzok on the FBI’s investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private server” up until Trump and Pence accepted the GOP nomination in the summer of 2016. Then she reportedly recused herself from the investigation.

Given this finding, it seems as if Strzok and Page’s texts had therefore referred to the possibility of recruiting Seaman’s husband to help them surveil then-President-elect Trump’s transition team.

“The nature of these communications, and the precise purpose of any attempts to ‘develop relationships’ with Trump or Pence transition team staff are not immediately clear,” Grassley and Johnson wrote in their letter to Barr. “Were these efforts done to gain better communication between the respective parties, or were the briefings used as intelligence gathering operations?”

“Further, did any such surveillance activities continue beyond the inauguration, and in the event they did, were those activities subject to proper predication? Any improper FBI surveillance activities that were conducted before or after the 2016 election must be brought to light and properly addressed.”

Speaking Thursday evening on Fox News’ “Hannity” about these newly discovered texts, the president expressed dismay, describing the discovery as...
