Greek tragedy: Jake Tapper explains how Strzok's anti-Trump bias might have cost Hillary the election

Even more damning text messages between FBI agent Peter Strzok and his mistress Lisa Page have surfaced as a result of Thursday’s release of the IG report, and in a lengthy thread, CNN’s Jake Tapper theorizes that Strzok’s bias against Trump might have been what cost Hillary the 2016 election.


Plenty have blamed former FBI director James Comey’s Oct. 28 letter to Congress revealing that the FBI was reviewing additional emails in Hillary Clinton’s case for costing her the presidency; Nate Silver called it “painfully obvious” that Comey cost her the election that day.

In a lengthy thread, CNN’s Jake Tapper posits that, just maybe, Strzok’s obvious bias against Trump actually set in motion the wheels that would propel Donald Trump to the White House. Hang in there for a minute:


Here’s the plot twist.



Nice … so Strzok did what he could to sit on Anthony Weiner’s laptop for as long as possible, but he could only repress the evidence until right before the election; Comey then had no choice but to announce the investigation he’d seemingly put to bed was still open, handing the Trump campaign a devastating October surprise.


Or was it Andrew McCabe?

Of course, all of this assumes that it was Comey’s October letter to Congress that cost Clinton the election.
