BREAKING: Anti-Trump FBI Agent Peter Strzok Fired; Here’s What We Know…

Anti-Trump FBI agent Peter Strzok has been fired from the FBI for violating bureau policies, according to The New York Times.

Aitan Goelman, Strzok’s attorney, released a statement on Monday stating that FBI Deputy Director David Bowdich made the decision to fire Strzok rather than follow a recommendation from the bureau’s Office of Professional Responsibility, who suggested Strzok only be suspended for 60 days and demoted.

“The decision to fire Special Agent Strzok is not only a departure from typical bureau practice, but also contradicts Director Wray’s testimony to Congress and his assurances that the F.B.I. intended to follow its regular process in this and all personnel matters.”

Following the news, President Donald Trump applauded the FBI for “finally” canning Strzok. He also questioned if the Russia “witch hunt,” which was started and led by Strzok, would be ended given his extreme bias.

Strzok served as the No. 2 counterintelligence analyst at the FBI before being demoted last year and fired from Special Counsel Robert Mueller team after an internal probe found that he had sent hundreds of anti-Trump text messages to Lisa Page, a former lawyer at the FBI lawyer with whom he was having an affair. Page abruptly resigned earlier this month amid the numerous allegations against her.

Strzok has come under heavy fire in recent months for sending countless salacious text messages smearing Trump, his supporters, and making a bevy of controversial comments implying he could take action to stop Trump from taking office.

He called Trump supporters a bunch of ignorant hillbillies; spoke about an “insurance policy” in the case that Trump won the election; mentioned a “secret society” to unseat a duly elected president; and implied that he and others at the bureau would never let Trump be president.

Many are applauding the FBI’s decision to axe Strzok, who was inherently biased against Trump when he launched and led the phony Russia witch hunt.

Drain the swamp.
