Sen. Cruz’s New Book Reveals Origins Of DOJ Corruption

In an explosive new book, Sen. Ted Cruz’s (R-TX) “Justice Corrupted” takes on the beginnings of the FBI’s infamous Crossfire Hurricane operation as well as corruption in President Joe Biden’s Department of Justice.

Cruz goes back to the origins of Crossfire Hurricane, the FBI’s effort to find links between former President Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign and the Russian government.

Drawing parallels between this modern investigation and another under the Nixon administration, Cruz chronicles the almost immediate introduction of spying into the effort.

In order to conduct the operation, the FBI needed authorization from the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISA Court). Their first application, which was to spy on Carter Page, was turned down due to lack of evidence.

It was then that the agency returned to the FISA Court with the now-infamous Steele Dossier. With its vivid but unsubstantiated allegations, they were able to obtain the desired warrants.

Cruz shows how the FBI investigation dug up no evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Moscow in 2016. This, however, did not lead to the end of the search.

Instead, as it is noted, the FISA warrants were renewed and the quest for anything to use against Trump continued.

Justice Corrupted details a series of text messages between FBI agent Peter Strzok and FBI lawyer Lisa Page, who were having an affair. In them the obvious hatred for then-candidate Trump was laid bare.

At one point, Strzok tells Page that the Republican will not become president and that “we’ll stop it.”

The effort went so far off the rails that earlier this year the agency began an internal investigation into Crossfire Hurricane. That news was exposed in May during the trial of Attorney Michael Sussmann, a former Hillary Clinton campaign lawyer.

And, of course, there’s Special Counsel John Durham’s investigation into the origins of the FBI probe.

Cruz’s book digs into a subject that is timely and relevant. The corruption of the DOJ and FBI goes back further than just the Biden administration, and forces within a federal agency should not be able to conspire to deny the will of the people, no matter the level of their personal hatred.
