Sara Carter on Reports of Anti-Trump FBI Agents: Top Level of FBI Is in 'Tatters'
Sara Carter, investigative reporter for Circa News, said this morning she expects a "shakeup" after investigations into FBI leaks are concluded.
Attorney General Jeff Sessions told Congress last month there were 27 open investigations into leaks of classified information with a "political motive."
Carter said it's not clear if all of those probes are centered on the FBI, but she said the investigations have included lie-detector tests.
"This is a big investigation. What I know is that they have been running polygraphs on people within the FBI. They are looking for leakers and a lot more information is gonna come out. I think there’s going to be a shakeup," she said.
Fox News has learned that the Justice Department is in the process of handing over to the House Intelligence Committee the anti-Trump text messages that got a key FBI official removed from Robert Mueller's Russia probe.
The actions of Peter Strzok while working on the Hillary Clinton email investigation have also come under scrutiny. Strzok was removed from the Mueller probe over the summer.
On Tuesday, Judicial Watch released an email showing another Mueller deputy, Andrew Weissmann, had praised outgoing acting Attorney General Sally Yates after she was fired in January by Trump for refusing to defend his travel ban.
Carter said she finds it "hard to believe" Mueller didn't know these things about Weissmann and Strzok, since he's known for being very thorough and detail-oriented.
She agreed with President Trump's assessment of an FBI in "tatters" when it comes specifically to senior-level FBI officials, but not rank-and-file agents.
Tainted (no, very dishonest?) FBI “agent’s role in Clinton probe under review.” Led Clinton Email probe. @foxandfriends Clinton money going to wife of another FBI agent in charge.
