FBI Lawyer Who Texted "Viva La Resistance" Just Happened to Conduct Interview of George Papadopolous

From Ace of Spades:
A House Republican Tuesday unmasked two of the five FBI investigators cited in the recently released inspector general’s report for expressing anti-Trump and pro-Clinton sentiment in work-related instant messages. 
The previously unnamed FBI officials -- "FBI Attorney 2" and "Agent 5" -- are Kevin Clinesmith and Sally Moyer, respectively, according to House Oversight Committee member Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC), who revealed their identities over the objection of the FBI during a hearing on the IG's findings. 
The two were assigned to the bureau's Hillary Clinton email investigation, according to the IG's report, while Clinesmith also later worked as a top lawyer on the Trump-Russia investigation and the special-counsel probe. ... 
Horowitz testified that the FBI was withholding the names of the other rogue agents from Congress and the public because "they work on counterintelligence" and can't be exposed. But Meadows argued that both Clinesmith and Moyer work for the FBI's office of legal counsel, and are no longer in "counterintelligence," as the FBI claimed. 
"They don’t work in counterintelligence," Meadows said in an exchange with Horowitz. "If that's the reason the FBI is giving, they're giving you false information, because they work for the general counsel." 
Horowitz confirmed the two worked in that office, which was headed by Trisha Anderson, who also recently resigned. Anderson also worked closely with Strzok and was married to a top Obama White House official. 
FEC records show she gave political contributions to Obama. Moyer, in an Oct. 28, 2016, instant message, said she was "sick" of Trump and later called his supporters "retarded." 
On Election Day, she said Clinton had “better win... otherwise i'm gonna be walking around with both my guns...and like quitting on the spot,” adding, “screw you trump.” ... 
Meanwhile, Clinesmith lamented Clinton's loss the day after the election, messaging to several FBI employees, "I am numb." He added, "I am so stressed about what I could have done differently." 
Clinesmith also expressed regret over the reopening of the Clinton email case on Oct. 28, 2016, arguing that it "broke the momentum" of Clinton’s campaign. He warned at the time that the belated move, which was pressured by leaks over the discovery of additional classified emails on the laptop of Clinton’s aide in New York, could initiate "the destruction of the republic." 
After Clinesmith messaged another FBI employee that he was "just devastated" over Trump's unexpected victory, he launched into a rant: 
"I just can't imagine the systematic disassembly of the progress we made over the last 8 years. ACA is gone. Who knows if the rhetoric about deporting people, walls, and crap is true. I honestly feel like there is going to be a lot more gun issues, too, the crazies won finally. This is the tea party on steroids. And the GOP is going to be lost, they have to deal with an incumbent in 4 years. We have to fight this again. Also Pence is stupid." 
Weeks later, the Russiagate investigator added, "Viva le resistance," signaling he planned to fight back against Trump. 
An FBI attorney who sent anti-Trump text messages -- including one calling for "resistance" against Trump -- took part in at least one interview last year with George Papadopoulos, the former Trump campaign adviser who has pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI. 
The lawyer, Kevin Clinesmith, was part of the FBI team that interviewed Papadopoulos on Feb. 16, 2017, a source familiar with the interview tells TheDCNF. ... 
While Meadows, a close President Donald Trump ally, did not explicitly say that Clinesmith was FBI Attorney 2, The Daily Mail reported that he was.

Really, huh? Their guys with a badge. They should be able to pull down hot chicks. I don't get it either.

I prefer not to comment on appearance of my gender, but age is fair game.

Moyer is 44 and Clinesmith is 36. I ball-parked his age at 35 but placed Ms. Moyer in the early fifties range. She has not aged well and perhaps the arrangement was one of convenience - in Benjamin Franklin style.

But the pair seem a bit of a mismatch.
