FBI fires Peter Strzok

FBI fires Peter Strzok, by Tyler Durden.

Peter Strzok, who spearheaded the FBI’s investigations into both the Clinton email “matter” and the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election, has been fired from the agency over anti-Trump texts …

Strzok’s termination follows a June report that he was physically escorted out of an FBI building despite still being employed by the agency. …

Still pretending he’s the victim:

Peter Strzok — who vowed in a text message to his FBI mistress to “stop” Trump, was the victim of political bias — according to his attorney.

Strzok’s anti-Trump sentiment came to light after an internal investigation revealed he and his FBI mistress Lisa Page had exchanged 50,000 text messages, many of which contained clear animus towards then-candidate Donald Trump. …

Perhaps the most alarming of the exchanges mentions an “insurance policy” in the event Trump is elected. …

The text messages made abundantly clear that Strzok — the man who downgraded the FBI’s assessment of Hillary’s email mishandling from “grossly negligent” to “extremely careless,” and used a largely unfounded Trump-Russia dossier to launch a counterintelligence operation — holds a deep disdain for Donald Trump.

Strzok testified at a Congressional hearing last month, asserting that there was “no evidence of bias in my professional actions,” and that his testimony was “just another victory notch in [Russian President Vladimir] Putin’s belt and another milestone in our enemies’ campaign to tear America apart.”

The now-former FBI agent also creeped people out with a weird smirk during the session, as well as the generally creepy faces he made:
