Are Republicans Ignoring Bill Priestap? [VIDEO]

Bill Priestap was Peter Strzok’s boss but he hasn’t been mentioned by name in the news in quite a while.

From what Google News tells me, Bill Priestap has not been mentioned in the news since early October.

In fact, if I search for just his last name, it doesn’t turn up anything after July, which makes me wonder about Google’s algorithm.

Democrats have dismissed the complaints as a sideshow, noting that FBI agents are expressly permitted to have political views, so long as they don’t act on them to taint investigations. So far, they say, no evidence has shown Strzok or Page took any actions based on their dislike of Trump. Their texts also revealed disdain for other political figures on both sides of the aisle.
