Among the many interesting nuggets found in the text messages exchanged between FBI employees Peter Strzok and his mistress, Lisa Page, is a newly released exchange in which the pair lament the outcome of the November 3, 2015 Virginia Senate election in which Dr. Jill McCabe, wife of soon-to-be FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, lost by 5 points to Sen. Dick Black (R-Loudoun).
TBE readers will recall that Team Clinton swept aside the well qualified candidate recruited by the Loudoun County Democratic Committee to run against Sen. Black (a candidate who was not married to a senior official of the agency investigating the Clinton email scandal) in order to install their preferred nominee (who was married to a senior official of the agency investigating the Clinton email scandal).
Readers will also surely recall that Team Clinton invested heavily in that race, pouring close to $700,000 in donations to support McCabe’s first foray into politics.
Further, as much recent reporting has indicated, Strzok, the FBI investigator who led the probe into Hillary Clinton’s unlawful email practices involving classified government emails, had significant biases against Donald Trump and in favor of Ms. Clinton.
Thanks to newly released texts, however, we now know his biases are not just about policies or personalities, but instead reflect a deep animus toward those who may disagree with him. In other words, he’s a typical east coast elitist progressive.
Here’s what Page and Strzok had to say in the wake of Sen. Black’s defeat of their boss’s wife:
For those reading from devices on which the above image does not display properly, here’s the transcript:
Page: [Jill] lost. What a f-ing disappointment.
Page: 52/47. I’m really so disappointed. What is wrong with people?
Strzok: [redacted]nb) I saw. Disappointing, but look at the district map. Loudon [sic] is being gentrified, but it’s still largely ignorant hillbillys [sic]. Good for her for running, but curious if she’s energized or never again.
So, Loudoun Republican voters, how do you like the disdain aimed in your direction from senior personnel at the agency charged with investigating the candidate of your party?

EDITORIAL UPDATE: Republican Party of Virginia Chairman John Whitbeck has issued the following statement regarding this revelation:
“I am outraged that officials in one of the United States’s top law enforcement institutions would demean and degrade citizens from Loudoun County. This type of language shows exactly why the American people are worried about the politicization of the FBI. Every single Democratic candidate in Virginia’s 10th Congressional District needs to denounce this slur. If they do not, they implicitly agree with Mr. Strzok’s liberal elitist language.”
