Ignorant hillbillies? Loudoun County officials respond
Loudoun County Supervisor Geary Higgins (R-Catoctin) appeared on the Fox News program “Fox and Friends” Thursday morning to respond to a text message sent by FBI agent Peter Strzok to his mistress, FBI attorney Lisa Page, that called "Loudon (sic)" residents “ignorant hillbillys (sic).”

Aside from Strzok misspelling hillbillies and Loudoun, many have questioned the accuracy of Strzok's characterization, given the various accolades and distinctions the wealthy, affluent Loudoun County has achieved.

The recently disclosed text messages refer to Virginians who voted against then-FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe's wife, Jill, who ran for a state Senate seat in 2015. Jill McCabe lost her campaign to incumbent state Sen. Dick Black (R-13th).

Strzok's text said, “Disappointing, but look at the district map. Loudon 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.”

Subpoena of Trump Organization Records Brings Mueller Closer to Sater, Cohen - WhoWhatWhy
News that Special Counsel Robert Mueller has subpoenaed Trump Organization records puts the president in a really tough spot with no good choices.
The move shows that Mueller clearly couldn’t care less about the “red line” President Donald Trump drew in July last year during an interview with the New York Times. The president was asked whether investigating his personal and family finances unrelated to Russia would be crossing a red line.
“I would say yes,” Trump said back then. But that is precisely what Mueller seems to be doing now. Such a move could lead Trump to try getting rid of Mueller, something many of the president’s own allies believe would be a catastrophic decision.
If Mueller continues down this path, however, he will get a much clearer picture of Trump’s financial ties to Putin’s regime and to dubious figures in the US and within Russia.

FBI Agent Who Interviewed Flynn Had Personal Relationship With Recused Judge
“[REDACTED] suggested a social setting with others would probably be better than a one on one meeting,” Strzok told Page. “I’m sorry, I’m just going to have to invite you to that cocktail party.”

“Have to come up with some other work people cover for action,” Strzok added.

“Why more?” Page responded. “Six is a perfectly fine dinner party.”

It is not known whether the proposed party happened as planned.

While working as one of the top counterintelligence officials at the FBI, Strzok reportedly took part in the FBI’s interview of on January 24. Flynn later pleaded guilty to one charge of providing false information to federal investigators. Strzok later left the FBI to join Mueller’s special counsel team, which obtained the indictment of Flynn.

Flynn’s guilty plea was accepted in federal court by Contreras on December 1, 2017. The New York Times reported the next day that Strzok, who left the FBI to work for special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election, had been removed from the case by Mueller due to inappropriate text messages between Strzok and another federal official, now believed to be DOJ attorney Lisa Page. On December 5, 2017, Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, wrote a letter to FBI director Christopher Wray demanding text messages from Strzok as well as any notes he took regarding his interviews with Flynn. Contreras was recused from the Flynn case on December 7, 2017, and the case was reassigned to Judge Emmet G. Sullivan, according to federal court documents.
