Some disturbing allegations have surfaced about the former Chief of Staff to Vice President Mike Pence, Joshua Pitcock. His wife has been connected with disgraced anti-Trump FBI agent Peter Strzok.

According to the Hoover Institution’s Paul Sperry, the Chief of Staff’s wife was actually the assistant to Agent Strzok.
The great @paulsperry_ confirms that disgraced FBI agent Peter Strozk’s assistant, a woman named Katherine Seaman, was married to Vice President Mike Pence’s former chief of staff, Joshua Pitcock. Did the FBI spy on Trump from inside the White House? https://t.co/qhkmJGDAIU

These allegations, if true, would be inexcusable. At the very least, it would show the level of animus and the lengths individuals would go to thwart the President’s plans and oust him from the White House.
The Gateway Pundit discussed the issue at hand:
“The wife of former Chief of Staff to Mike Pence Joshua Pitcock was working for Peter Strzok and investigating into Hillary Clinton’s crimes.
This comes after it was reported on Thursday that lovebirds Peter Strzok and Lisa Page were ‘cultivating sources’ to spy and inform them on President Trump.
It is not clear at this point Pitcock’s involvement in this development.”
Sara Carter, a journalist and frequent Fox News contributor, went into the story in fuller detail over at saracarter.com.
Senior Republican chairmen submitted a letter Thursday to Department of Justice Attorney General William Barr revealing new texts from former FBI Special Agent Peter Strzok to his paramour FBI Attorney Lisa Page showing the pair had discussed attempts to recruit sources within the White House to allegedly spy on the Trump administration.
The texts and sources reveal that Strzok had one significant contact within the White House – Vice President Mike Pence’s Chief of Staff Joshua Pitcock, whose wife was working as an analyst for Strzok on the FBI’s investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private server. A senior White House official told this news site that Pitcock’s wife recused herself from the Clinton investigation as soon as Pence and Trump became the Republican nominees in July 2016. A senior law enforcement official also told SaraACarter.com that Pitcock’s wife no longer worked under Strzok after she recused herself from the Clinton investigation.
However, the text messages uncovered from November, 2016 and have left questions lingering about the relationship between Strzok, Pitcock and his wife among congressional investigators and lawmakers.
‘The course of our oversight work we have reviewed certain text messages that may show potential attempts by the FBI to conduct surveillance of President-elect Trump’s transition team,’ the letter states. ‘In text messages exchanged between former FBI Special Agent Peter Strzok and former FBI Attorney Lisa Page, the two discussed the possibility of developing “potential relationships” at a November 2016 FBI briefing for presidential transition team staff. Specifically, it appears they discussed sending “the CI guy” to assess an unnamed person “demeanor” but were concerned because it might be unusual for him to attend.'”
This is likely an ongoing and evolving situation that will get investigated and the appropriate attention, as Attorney General Bill Barr has been made privy of the allegation against VP Mike Pence’s former-Chief of Staff.
If the allegations are true, this would be a gross invasion of the Vice President of the United States’ privacy and should be prosecuted thoroughly.
