The FBI agent who was an integral part of the Clinton and Trump investigations has finally been fired. Peter Strzok, who became infamous for his anti-Trump and election meddling texts, was originally only to be demoted and suspended. However, FBI Deputy Director David Bodwich overruled the disciplinary office and fired Strzok.
Strzok’s private texts were a goldmine for Trump supporters as the Trump Russia collusion investigation fell apart. Strzok was having an affair with FBI attorney Lisa Page and texted her about his progress in investigating Trump. Strzok texted her that Hillary should win, even though he was still investigating Hillary for her illegal email server. Strzok went on to text that they would “stop Trump”, and went as far as colluding with her to spark the Russian investigation.
Strzok texted with Page about Andrew McCabe’s idea of the Russian investigation being an “insurance policy” in case Trump was elected. They also texted about Strzok’s relationship with FISA Court judge Contreras in the context of how to spy on the Trump campaign.
In testimony before Congress, Strzok appeared angry, confident, and incredulous that he would be questioned over his texts. He attempted to explain them away as simply personal political activism that didn’t affect his job, however even Lisa Page admitted that everyone understood his activism in the context of his job at the FBI.
Strzok’s friend and boss, Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, was fired earlier this year for leaking to the media. McCabe was in charge of the Clinton and Trump investigations, and responsible for using Hillary’s bought and paid for Russian dossier propaganda to get FISA warrants to spy on Trump. McCabe refused to recuse himself, even though his wife was running for office in Virginia as a Democrat.
With McCabe and Strzok fired in disgrace and admissions from Comey and Mueller that Trump was never a target of the Russia investigation, the only thing left for Mueller is the possibility of a perjury rap if he can get Trump under oath. This isn’t likely at this point unless Mueller subpoenas Trump.
