John Calvin puts forward a very simple reason why love is the greatest gift: “Because faith and hope are our own: love is diffused among others.” In other words, faith and hope benefit the possessor, but love always benefits another. In John 13:34–35 Jesus says, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” Love always requires an “other” as an object; love cannot remain within itself, and that is part of what makes love the greatest gift.

Peter Strzok Suspected CIA Was Behind Inaccurate Media Leaks

Peter Strzok, the former FBI counterintelligence official, suspected that Central Intelligence Agency employees were behind inaccurate leaks to the press regarding possible Trump campaign contacts with Russia, according to an email he sent to FBI colleagues in April 2017.

“I’m beginning to think the agency got info a lot earlier than we thought and hasn’t shared it completely with us. Might explain all these weird/seemingly incorrect leads all these media folks have. Would also highlight agency as source of some of the leaks,” Strzok wrote in an email to FBI colleagues on April 13, 2017.

The email is highlighted in a letter that two Republican senators sent Monday to Michael K. Atkinson, the inspector general of the intelligence community.

In the letter, Iowa Sen. Chuck Grassley and Wisconsin Sen. Ron Johnson asked Atkinson if he has investigated whether the CIA or other intelligence community agencies leaking information to the press.

They pointed to a Dec. 15, 2016 text message that Strzok, the lead investigator on the Trump-Russia probe, sent to then-FBI attorney Lisa Page.

“Think our sisters have begun leaking like mad. Scorned and worried and political, they’re kicking in to overdrive,” Strzok wrote Page.

Strzok did not identify a specific leak, but a day earlier, NBC News broke a bombshell story that Vladimir Putin was personally involved in the U.S. election hacks. The story was sourced to “senior U.S. intelligence officials.”

Strzok’s email several months later referred to another bombshell report, this one published by The Guardian.

Entitled “British spies were first to spot Trump team’s links with Russia,” the story claimed that British intelligence provided their American counterparts with information about possible Trump campaign contacts and Russians in late 2015.

In his email to colleagues, Strzok did not dispute The Guardian’s report. But the article appears to have raised his suspicion that the CIA, which is referred to in government circles as “the agency,” had intelligence that had not been shared with the FBI. And Strzok believed that some of that intelligence had been leaked to the media, even though it was inaccurate.

Strzok was removed from the special counsel’s investigation in July 2017, after the messages were discovered as part of an inspector general’s investigation into the FBI’s handling of the Clinton email probe. He was fired on Aug. 13, 2018.

Strzok, who was having an affair with Page, was a lead investigator on both the email investigation and the Trump-Russia inquiry.

“These texts and emails raise a number of serious questions and concerns,” Grassley and Johnson wrote in their letter to Atkinson.

They are asking Atkinson to provide more information about the “sisters” and why they would have started leaking.

The Justice Department’s inspector general is investigating the FBI and Justice Department’s handling of the Russia probe. Attorney General William Barr said last Tuesday that the agency of “multiple” criminal leak investigations ongoing. He has also formed a task force to investigate the origins of the Trump investigation.
