Former FBI attorney Lisa Page has reportedly told a joint committee of the House of Representatives that when FBI counterintelligence official Peter Strzok texted her on May 19, 2017 saying there was “no big there there,” he meant there was no evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.

It was clearly a bad-luck day for Strzok, when on Friday the 13th this month Page gave her explanation of the text to the House Judiciary and Oversight/Government Reform Committees and in effect threw her lover, Strzok, under the bus.

Strzok’s apparent admission to Page about there being “no big there there” was reported on Friday by John Solomon in the Opinion section of The Hill based on multiple sources who he said were present during Page’s closed door interview.

Strzok’s text did not come out of the blue. For the previous ten months he and his FBI subordinates had been trying every-which-way to ferret out some “there” — preferably a big “there” — but had failed miserably. If Solomon’s sources are accurate, it is appearing more and more likely that there was nothing left for them to do but to make it up out of whole cloth, with the baton then passed to special counsel Robert Mueller.

The “no there there” text came just two days after former FBI Director James Comey succeeded in getting his friend Mueller appointed to investigate the alleged collusion that Strzok was all but certain wasn’t there.

Robert Parry, the late founder and editor of Consortium News whom Solomon described to me last year as his model for journalistic courage and professionalism, was already able to discern as early as March 2017 the outlines of what is now Deep State-gate, and, typically, was the first to dare report on its implications.

Parry’s article, written two and a half months before Strzok texted the self-incriminating comment to Page on there being “no big there there,” is a case study in professional journalism. His very first sentence entirely anticipated Strzok’s text: “The hysteria over ‘Russia-gate’ continues to grow … but at its core there may be no there there.”(Emphasis added.)

As for “witch-hunts,” Bob and others at, who didn’t succumb to the virulent HWHW (Hillary Would Have Won) virus, and refused to slurp the Kool-Aid offered at the deep Deep State trough, have come close to being burned at the stake — virtually. Typically, Bob stuck to his guns: he ran an organ (now vestigial in most Establishment publications) that sifted through and digested actual evidence and expelled drivel out the other end.

Those of us following the example set by Bob Parry are still taking a lot of incoming fire — including from folks on formerly serious — even progressive — websites. Nor do we expect a cease-fire now, even with Page’s statement (about which, ten days after her interview, the Establishment media keep a timorous silence). Far too much is at stake.

As Mark Twain put it, “It is easier to fool people than to convince them that they have been fooled.” And, as we have seen over the past couple of years, that goes in spades for “Russia-gate.” For many of us who have looked into it objectively and written about it dispassionately, we are aware, that on this issue, we are looked upon as being in sync with President Donald Trump.

Blind hatred for the man seems to thwart any acknowledgment that he could ever be right about something—anything. This brings considerable awkwardness. Chalk it up to the price of pursuing the truth, no matter what bedfellows you end up with.

Courage at The Hill

Page: Coughs up the meaning of ‘there.’
Page: Coughs up the meaning of ‘there.’

Solomon’s article merits a careful read, in toto. Here are the most germane paragraphs:

“It turns out that what Strzok and Lisa Page were really doing that day [May 19, 2017] was debating whether they should stay with the FBI and try to rise through the ranks to the level of an assistant director (AD) or join Mueller’s special counsel team. [Page has since left the FBI.]

“‘Who gives a f*ck, one more AD [Assistant Director] like [redacted] or whoever?’” Strzok wrote, weighing the merits of promotion, before apparently suggesting what would be a more attractive role: ‘An investigation leading to impeachment?’ …

“A few minutes later Strzok texted his own handicap of the Russia evidence: ‘You and I both know the odds are nothing. If I thought it was likely, I’d be there no question. I hesitate in part because of my gut sense and concern there’s no big there there.’

“So the FBI agents who helped drive the Russia collusion narrative — as well as Rosenstein’s decision to appoint Mueller — apparently knew all along that the evidence was going to lead to ‘nothing’ and, yet, they proceeded because they thought there was still a possibility of impeachment.”

Solomon adds: “How concerned you are by this conduct is almost certainly affected by your love or hatred for Trump. But put yourself for a second in the hot seat of an investigation by the same FBI cast of characters: You are under investigation for a crime the agents don’t think occurred, but the investigation still advances because the desired outcome is to get you fired from your job. Is that an FBI you can live with?”

The Timing

As noted, Strzok’s text was written two days after Mueller was appointed on May 17, 2017. The day before, on May 16,The New York Times published a story that Comey leaked to it through an intermediary that was expressly designed (as Comey admitted in Congressional testimony three weeks later) to lead to the appointment of a special prosecutor to investigate collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia. Hmmmmm.

Had Strzok forgotten to tell his boss that after ten months of his best investigative efforts — legal and other—he could find no “there there”?

Comey’s leak, by the way, was about alleged pressure from Trump on Comey to go easy on Gen. Michael Flynn for lying at an impromptu interrogation led by — you guessed it — the ubiquitous, indispensable Peter Strzok.

In any event, the operation worked like a charm — at least at first. And — absent revelation of the Strzok-Page texts — it might well have continued to succeed. After Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein named Mueller, one of Comey’s best buddies, to be special counsel, Mueller, in turn, picked Strzok to lead the Russia-gate team, until the summer, when the Department of Justice Inspector General was given the Strzok-Page texts and refused to sit on them.

A Timeline

Here’s a timeline, which might be helpful:


May 16: Comey leak to NY Times to get a special counsel appointed

May 17: Special counsel appointed — namely, Robert Mueller.

May 19: Strzok confides to girlfriend Page, “No big there there.”

July: Mueller appoints Strzok lead FBI Agent on collusion investigation.

August: Mueller removes Strzok after learning of his anti-Trump texts to Page.

Dec. 12: DOJ IG releases some, but by no means all, relevant Strzok-Page texts to Congress and the media, which first reports on Strzok’s removal in August.


June 14: DOJ IG Report Published.

June 15; Strzok escorted out of FBI Headquarters.

June 21: Attorney General Jeff Sessions announces Strzok has lost his security clearances.

July 12: Strzok testifies to House committees. Solomon reports he refused to answer question about the “there there” text.

July 13: Lisa Page interviewed by same committees. Answers the question.

Earlier: Bob Parry in Action

Journalist Robert Parry
Journalist Robert Parry

On December 12, 2017, as soon as first news broke of the Strzok-Page texts, Bob Parry and I compared notes by phone. We agreed that this was quite big and that, clearly, Russia-gate had begun to morph into something like FBI-gate. It was rare for Bob to call me before he wrote; in retrospect, it seemed to have been merely a sanity check.

The piece Bob posted early the following morning was typical Bob. Many of those who click on the link will be surprised that, last December, he already had pieced together most of the story. Sadly, it turned out to be Bob’s last substantive piece before he fell seriously ill. Earlier last year he had successfully shot down other Russia-gate-related canards on which he found Establishment media sorely lacking — “Facebook-gate,” for example.

Remarkably, it has taken another half-year for Congress and the media to address — haltingly — the significance of Deep State-gate — however easy it has become to dissect the plot, and identify the main plotters. With Bob having prepared the way with his Dec.13 article, I followed up a few weeks later with “The FBI Hand Behind Russia-gate,” in the process winning no friends among those still suffering from the highly resistant HWHW virus.


Parry also deserves credit for his recognition and appreciation of the unique expertise and analytical integrity among Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity (VIPS) and giving us a secure, well respected home at Consortium News.

It is almost exactly a year since Bob took a whole lot of flak for publishing what quickly became VIPS’ most controversial, and at the same time perhaps most important, Memorandum For the President; namely, “Intelligence Veterans Challenge ‘Russia Hack’ Evidence.”

Critics have landed no serious blows on the key judgments of that Memorandum, which rely largely on the type of forensic evidence that Comey failed to ensure was done by his FBI because the Bureau never seized the DNC server. Still more forensic evidence has become available over recent months soon to be revealed on Consortium News, confirming our conclusions.

Ray McGovern works with Tell the Word, a publishing arm of the ecumenical Church of the Saviour in inner-city Washington. He was a CIA analyst for 27 years and, in retirement, co-founded Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity.

  2. It seems to me that the house filing of the impeachment resolutions along with this gives Trump the needed cover to withstand the media firestorm which will, of course, occur if and when he decides to pull the trigger on getting rid of his disloyal assistant attorney general and ending the Mueller witchhunt farce. He also should get rid of Sessions, who failed to stand up for the administration because the secret facts showing the farcical nature of what they were going on were there and should have been known to the leadership of the department. If Trump can’t get a replacement confirmed, he should go with a caretaker from the lower levels until he can. This information also gives him the cover to pardon everybody persecuted by the Mueller witchhunt. The sooner he acts the better. While Trump is no hero, those attacking him are a fascist neocon cabal.

  3. I forgot to include this in my response, but Publius Tacitus on Sic Semper Tyrannis ( Col Lang’s website, exposes the absurdity and odium of the Steele dossier point by point and reveals it for what it was: an attempted spook led deep state coup to ensure Trump was sidelined. The ongoing effort has been a direct outgrowth of this, and, whatever one thinks of Trump, the success of such an extra-legal effort would spell the irrevocable end of representative law based government in the US state. In my view, Trump’s efforts to defend himself has resulted in many of the rumours of war and much of the anti-Russian stuff including pro el qaeda stuff in Syria. Trump’s regime has also had to rely much more than it would have on Israeli backing to somewhat neutralize the neocons. This has its own doleful results, including the absurd anti-Iranian campaign.

  4. Google “Robert Mueller” to discover his career in the Deep State, to include obstructing 9-11 investigations. We are told he is a conservative Republican, so why did Democrat Bill Clinton’s Attorney General Janet Reno appoint him as US Attorney for Northern California in 1998!

    These are powerful and important positions in the federal government that are given to allies! And why did powerful Democratic Senators applaud his appointment as special prosecutor? 

  5. Anon[425] • Disclaimer says:

    Of course, there is no ‘there’ there. This Russia Collusion stuff is 100x worse than McCarthy stuff. At least anti-communists were right about Soviet infiltration of US government. Alger Hiss, Harry Dexter White, Rosenbergs, Sobell, and network of Jewish communists. McCarthy over-reached, being a drunken Irish boor that he was.

    Now, we have this Russian Collusion BS. It’s all made-up. It turns out there was no collusion between Trump and Russia. Some Russians paid for some facebook ads that had no impact. It’s been said the Democratic emails were hacked, but there’s more evidence it was stolen from within by disgruntled Bernie supporter who realized the Democratic Party colluded to cheat him and his supporters.

    The Glob hates Russia because Putin took away some ill-gotten gains from oligarchs in the 1990s. Also, Russia said NO to homo worship, and this made the Glob angry as hell as this homo-tranny-craziness has been created as its proxy. Also, Putin supported return of Russian Church, and the Glob hates Christianity. Also, Russia’s nationalist resistance against globalist hegemony by US may inspire other nations toward nationalism-against-globo-imperialism. And of course, Putin, along with Iran, aided Syria and prevented it from becoming like Libya destroyed by Obama and Hillary, total shills of the Glob.

    Trump is an a-hole and boor, but he wants to scale back the US empire. He prefers better relations with Russia. He lowered tension in Korea and is pulling out of Syria. Deep State globalists are furious because they want to rule the world. Trump is worst in his stance on Iran.

    Anyway, Trump won an election he was not supposed to win. He won fair and square against all odds and all the establishment and media. So, the Power-that-be has been trying to de-legitimize the election by saying it’s not the result of democracy but foreign meddling. This is ironic since the main foreign meddler in US politics is Globo-Homo imperialism that wages war on US national sovereignty in terms of borders, trade, and culture.

    This Deep State war isn’t just against Trump and Russia. It is against every single person who voted for Trump. Deep State is saying YOUR VOTE doesn’t count. It is tainted. You’re are too stupid to have known better since your mind was twisted by Russian facebook ads. It is an insult and war on American electorate.
    Now, imagine if some people in US government hated the fact that Obama won and cooked up total lies to railroad Obama as stooge of some nation. Would most of Deep State given cover for those operatives? Would the media have joined in? Of course not. But with Trump and his voters, the Deep State war is on.

    In fact, the Trump victory was the most spectacular victory of democracy since Andrew Jackson. Against all odds and establishment power, Trump won by appealing to voters, and enough voted for him. He won fair and square. He won with pure democracy and nothing else. And this democracy voted for nationalism. The Deep State can’t stand this democracy. So, it cooked up total lies to subvert the democratic process in the name of protecting democracy from foreign powers. But in fact, the main foreign influence in the US is globalism that has no loyalty to any single nation. It is a globo-homo hegemonic force spread all around the world. Globo-Homo force had total grip on the US under Obama. But the people voted for Trump and Nationalism. This was a threat to the globo-homo hegemonic force. Globo-Homo was challenged by true American democratic nationalism. Globo-homo force was the real foreign meddler. So, what did globo-homo do? It posed as Patriotism and American Way and then cooked up Russia Collusion to make it seem as though the Issue was American Democracy vs Trump + Russia. In fact, it was Globo-Homo Force vs Trump + American Democracy.

    “Anyone who knows something about USA elections knows that tv is very important.”

    Or was–as that dynamic was strangely and uniquely flipped in the last election. How bizarre to see CNN trumpeting Hillary’s imminent coronation every day in the months before the election, supported by endless charts and graphs breaking down expected electoral votes to show ‘Trump has no electoral path to win’.

    And yet you could drive hundreds of miles in any direction in Pennsylvania–a solid Democratic state for the last 35 years–and literally not see one single sign on a front lawn or roadway supporting Clinton. When Hillary made a rare appearance at the Scranton airport about 400 people showed up and the national media filmed them pressed against the stage as though she were addressing thousands. Trump, on the other hand, attracted overflow capacity at the local 10,000 seat arena on multiple visits.

    It was obvious that reality and the media were going in two different directions. And I suspect those months also marked a final and monumental break between Americans and the mass media–a divorce, of sorts, based on irreconcilable differences. Not surprising, really. That relationship had problems going back as far as the Vietnam War.

    McCarthy really didn’t even overreach. The Black Book of Communism makes it rather clear that all but a handful of McCarthy’s stated assessments of numbers were well within the range of possibility, even probability. On some, he understated.

    McCarthy was right about the large numbers of Communist Party members and ‘fellow travelers’ who held important positions. That is the reason there was the massive campaign to destroy him.

    And amongst the loyal Democrat rank and file anyway, “it isn’t so much they don’t want to hear it” as that they have been conditioned in college to believe that “truth” per se, doesn’t exist. Deconstructionism has taught them that every statement is merely an opinion spoken from a particular perspective. Wielding this cudgel with sophomoric fervor, Trump haters browbeat the allegedly, simple-minded deplorable dunces who still place some faith in the notion of an objective truth.

    Here’s the whiplash Veblen warned us against. With no negative feedback to regulate the consciousness of a population that has been cut loose from manufacturing, there’s no “Reality Principle” to call people back to the truth. So while making stuff forces the attention to acknowledge that the world has its own ways and that we are subject to superior Laws (this is the “materialism” of Karl Marx, i.e. the working habit of the mind is a product of the environment within which it functions) most jobs today are “people jobs” which consist of little more than bouncing (mis)information back and forth between equally clueless minds. Such people will believe anything.

    A premium is placed on “getting along”. Human Resource types don’t like objectivists because they tend to be contentious, with their stubborn insistence upon such aggravating notions as accuracy and correct measurement.

    Yup. Every Democrat with whom I’ve tried to reason/argue ultimately falls back on the “there is no one Truth” or “What’s true for you isn’t true for me” gambit.

    Counter with the “What if your daughter were the harmed victim in an automobile accident and the defendant claimed that his version of what occurred should weigh equally in the scales of justice to that of your daughter’s and the three bystander/eyewitnesses’ accounts whose testimony supports her’s because “what’s true for you isn’t true for me” or “there is no one Truth”.

    “But that’s not the same thing!” they will say, when they are on the sharp end of the point being driven home.

    “Why not?” you reply.

    “Because these others are matters of opinion and your example is a matter of fact.”

    “Oh, you believe that _______* are a matter of opinion?”

    *insert: crime stats, behavior of buildings undergoing controlled demolition, performance in schools, performance on standardized tests etc.

    And the truth of the matter is, yes, Democrats do believe that all those are matters of opinion. They don’t acknowledge that measure and numbering apply to human beings.

    Agree, Fox and all the MSM are zionist owned and Hannity is another puppet of the zionists and a war cheerleader who is all for Israels genocide of Palestinians , they are all whores of their zionist owners.

    Congress could just as well be called the lower house of the knesset and the capital of the U.S. is in tel aviv in reality, America is a captive nation of the zionists and they did 911 and the so called congress did not do a thing, talk about being stupid cowards and traitors, the best congress that zionist money can buy.

    America is a zionist plantation and we are their slaves.

    Great comment to a great article above by McGovern.

    Agreed 99%, but on this point:

    Now, imagine if some people in US government hated the fact that Obama won and cooked up total lies to railroad Obama as stooge of some nation. Would most of Deep State given cover for those operatives? Would the media have joined in? Of course not.

    I don’t quite agree that media would have shown any true conviction about any serious concocted rail road job on Obama once they got their orders. From Deeps, that is.

    [Now, imagine if some people in US government… ]

    But those, (some people) would also have to be hooked up under the table with the deeps, but that would be cancelled out by BO’s deep connection. (Catch 22).

    Why did the media give Trump all the free attention in the election buildup? Why did the Deeps make such a fool mistake about that?

    That’s just the tip of the iceberg on Mueller…one of the most notorious Deep State Criminals in history…

    Not only his crimes covering up for Cheney as FBI director post 911…including the Anthrax hoax and persecution of an innocent man, overseen personally by Mueller…

    Long before he even took over at FBI Mueller ran the Whitey Bulger mob ring as acting US Attorney in Boston…an FBI agent working under Mueller is doing life in prison…Mueller will soon be suiting up in orange himself…

    Former FBI agent turned whistleblower Coleen Rowley has plenty to say about Mueller’s illustrious criminal career…

    ‘Russia-gate’s Mythical ‘Heroes’

    ‘…Mainstream commentators display amnesia when they describe former FBI Directors Robert Mueller and James Comey as stellar and credible law enforcement figures. Perhaps if they included J. Edgar Hoover, such fulsome praise could be put into proper perspective…’

    ‘…Although these Hoover successors, now occupying center stage in the investigation of President Trump, have been hailed for their impeccable character by much of Official Washington, the truth is, as top law enforcement officials of the George W. Bush Administration (Mueller as FBI Director and James Comey as Deputy Attorney General), both presided over post-9/11 cover-ups and secret abuses of the Constitution, enabled Bush-Cheney fabrications used to launch wrongful wars…’

    ‘…Long before he became FBI Director, serious questions existed about Mueller’s role as Acting U.S. Attorney in Boston in effectively enabling decades of corruption and covering up of the FBI’s illicit deals with mobster Whitey Bulger and other “top echelon” informants who committed numerous murders and crimes.

    When the truth was finally uncovered through intrepid investigative reporting and persistent, honest judges, U.S. taxpayers footed a $100 million court award to the four men framed for murders committed by (the FBI-operated) Bulger gang…’

    Boston Globe reporter Kevin Cullen reminded readers of Mueller’s crimes in Boston a couple years back when he was still running the FBI…

    ‘One lingering question for FBI director Robert Mueller’

    ‘…Hoover was a power unto himself, and the FBI that was created very much in his image sometimes acted more like the secret police of the totalitarian regimes Hoover regularly denounced: running rogue wiretaps, harassing political dissidents, using illegal means to collect evidence. Hoover’s FBI wasn’t accountable; it was untouchable…’

    ‘…So now, just weeks after the FBI’s worst nightmare, a gangster and FBI informant by the name of Whitey Bulger came strolling back into town, Congress is about to ignore its own wisdom and let Bob Mueller, the FBI director and former US Attorney in Boston, stay on an extra two years…’

    ‘…Turns out that Connolly was Whitey Bulger’s corrupt handler and Morris was Connolly’s corrupt supervisor. When they weren’t pocketing bribes from Bulger, they were helping him murder potential witnesses who were poised to expose the FBI’s sordid, Faustian deal with the rat named Whitey Bulger…’

    Connolly being the above mentioned former FBI agent now doing life in prison…Morris his FBI supervisor answering directly to then US Attorney for Boston Robert Mueller…

    ‘…Mueller was also in that position while Whitey Bulger was helping the FBI cart off his criminal competitors even as he buried bodies in shallow graves along the Neponset…’

    “Before [Mueller] gets that extension,’’ Mike Albano said, “somebody in the Senate or House needs to ask him why the US Attorney’s office he led let the FBI protect Whitey Bulger.’’

    “…free country and a free press … What if a nation has neither?”
    — An answer from Paul Craig Roberts:
    “The evidence is overwhelming that CIA director John Brennan, FBI director James Comey, Robert Mueller, James Clapper, Andrew McCabe, Peter Strzok, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, and the Democratic National Committee are engaged in high treason against the American people and the President of the United States and are actively engaged in a plot to overthrow the President of the United States. Yet, the traitorous intelligence officials retain their high-security clearances and have not been indicted, arrested, and put on trial for high treason. Rosenstein and Mueller haven’t even been fired from their high positions where they continue to operate in behalf of the overthrow plot.
    It shows the untouchable power of the military/security complex when its operatives are so far beyond the reach of law and accountability that they can commit high treason with no consequences to themselves.
    The US presstitute media works full time to protect these traitors… This makes the presstitutes accomplices to high treason and subject to arrest and prosecution.”

  41. annamaria says:
    “Former CIA Officer and whistleblower Kevin Shipp says what Hillary Clinton did with her charity and Uranium One while she was Secretary of State was a crime for the history books. Shipp explains, “Hillary Clinton used this to launder money in foreign banks so it wasn’t subject to U.S. laws, congressional subpoenas or FOIA demands for the evidence. This was done to launder this money globally into the Clinton Foundation so the U.S. government could not examine it at all.” …
    Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller was the head of the FBI while the Uranium One deal was being done by Clinton and the Russians. One fifth of U.S. uranium production was bought by the Russians in a deal Clinton pushed and approved. The Clinton Foundation received more than $140 million from some of the same Russian players who were involved with Uranium One. Why didn’t Mueller stop the deal? Shipp says, “Mueller is either a complete moron, which he is not, or he overlooked the biggest counterterrorism cases in U.S. history. It involved Hillary Clinton, the Clinton Foundation, Uranium One and, of course, the destruction of all the emails and evidence and her secret server, and on and on and on it goes, and he (Mueller) ignored it all.”

    The dirty Robert Mueller is a shriveled soul and coward, petrified by the very thought of losing his ill-gotten comforts. Similar to the profiteering Michael Hayden, Mueller put his pocket ahead of the US national security:
    As for the intellectually-challenged John Brennan, he has achieved his undeserved status thanks to being a protege of George Tenant, the most miserable coward in recent history:
    They all are heirs to perfidious Dick Cheney.
    “Cowardice is a trait wherein fear and excessive self-concern override doing or saying what is right, good, and of help to others or oneself in a time of need — it is the opposite of courage. As a label, “cowardice” indicates a failure of character in the face of a challenge. One who succumbs to cowardice is known as a coward.”

    You’ve gotta wonder what kind of consensus has emerged in Mueller’s team. Because Mueller’s gotta be constantly reassessing how he wants to play this thing. Because without the team, he could play it any way he likes, depending on which way the wind is blowing. But the team is the big x-factor here. They could really sabotage any effort by Mueller to cover his ass and let this thing fizzle out.
