Barack Obama turned the once-respected FBI into his own political enforcers.
FBI agents have been caught plotting against Donald Trump.
But Trey Gowdy just stepped up and shot their plot down.
Americans were outraged to learn that FBI agent Peter Strzok had sent texts about using the Russia investigation as an “insurance policy” to take out Donald Trump.
Text-from Peter Strzok to Lisa Page (Andy is Andrew McCabe): "I want to believe the path u threw out 4 consideration in Andy's office-that there's no way he gets elected-but I'm afraid we can't take that risk.It's like an insurance policy in unlikely event u die be4 you're 40"

Strzok – who was reassigned from special counsel Robert Mueller’s team – was the FBI agent who signed off on starting the Russia investigation.
Trump supporters saw his actions as the beginning of a silent coup to remove the President.
Trey Gowdy grilled Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein on the FBI’s conduct.
He later appeared on Fox News and ripped the FBI agents who “conspired” and “plotted” against Donald Trump during the campaign.
The Blaze reports:
“Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) reviewed his questioning of Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein on Wednesday, adding that it appeared that three FBI officials were “conspiring or plotting” to decide the election.
“This is a really bad fact pattern,” Gowdy said of the revelations about bias at the FBI and Justice Department.
“I hate it for Rod Rosenstein that he’s the one explaining it because he’s not [FBI official] Peter Strzok, and he’s not [Deputy FBI Director] Andy McCabe, and he’s not [former FBI Director] Jim Comey, so he’s having to do a little bit of clean up,” he explained. “But these are really bad facts if you care about an impartial, objective Department of Justice and FBI.”
“I’m still trying to figure out why three FBI agents are discussing politics in the Deputy Director’s office, because you’re not supposed to discuss politics on federal ground and FBI agents aren’t supposed to engage in politics for Hatch Act reasons,” he added.
Gowdy was referring to texts that showed FBI official Peter Strzok talking about an “insurance policy” against Trump winning the 2015 election. The text was in a trove of interactions obtained by the media and released Tuesday…
…“But the notion that three bureau agents would be conspiring or plotting on how to handle the outcome of a presidential election is the opposite of what you want in an objective, dispassionate, neutral FBI,” he explained.”
Do you agree the conduct of the FBI agents who plotted against Trump is outrageous?
