The FBI finally fired agent & attorney Peter Strzok, who helped lead the bureau’s creation of the Russian Collusion Hoax.  Strzok was also integral in the bureau’s faux investigation of Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server while she was secretary of state, and was a key player in the scheme to hide her criminal activity.

When a Justice Department inspector general investigation, headed by Michael Horowitz, uncovered politically charged messages that Strzok had exchanged with another FBI attorney, Lisa Page, he was relegated to a position in human resources.  The inspector general concluded that Strzok showed a “willingness to take official action” to hurt Trump’s electoral prospects, particularly in a text he sent telling Page “we’ll stop” Trump from being president.


Agent Peter Strzok was just fired from the FBI – finally.  The list of bad players in the FBI & DOJ gets longer & longer. Based on the fact that Strzok was in charge of the Witch Hunt, will it be dropped?  It is a total Hoax.  No Collusion, No Obstruction – I just fight back!” the president wrote.

Minutes later, he added, “Just fired Agent Strzok, formerly of the FBI, was in charge of the Crooked Hillary Clinton sham investigation.  It was a total fraud on the American public and should be properly redone!”

“Will the FBI ever recover it’s once stellar reputation, so badly damaged by Comey, McCabe, Peter S and his lover, the lovely Lisa Page, and other top officials now dismissed or fired?” Trump wrote.  “So many of the great men and women of the FBI have been hurt by these clowns and losers!”


Strzok’s position in the bureau had been precarious since summer 2017, when the Department of Justice’s inspector general, Michael E. Horowitz, told special counsel Robert S. Mueller III that the lead agent on his team had been exchanging anti-Trump messages with an FBI lawyer.  The next day, Mueller expelled Strzok from the group.

Lisa Page was also a part of Mueller’s team, though she left both the Mueller team and the FBI after her bias was discovered.  She and Strzok, both married, were having an affair.

The text messages exchanged between Strzok and Page while they worked on the Hillary Clinton email investigation clearly showed that these two wanted Clinton to become president and expected her to win the election.  In addition, their texts expressed a great deal of disdain for President Trump before they were hired to work on the “Russian Collusion” investigation, hoping to damage his presidency.

Strzok and Page were THEN hired by Mueller early in his investigation due in part to their desire to take down President Trump and due in part to their success in keeping Clinton out of prison.  When their subterfuge was discovered, Page quit her job as an attorney at the FBI.



At a congressional hearing earlier this summer Strzok sparred with Republican lawmakers who raised questions about his character and even his marriage. He asserted there was “no evidence of bias in my professional actions” and that his having to testify was “just another victory notch in Putin’s belt and another milestone in our enemies’ campaign to tear America apart.”  [Strzok thoughts: “Normal Americans are stupid.”]

Strzok is the third high-ranking FBI official involved in the Clinton and Russia investigations to be fired amid an intensely political backdrop.  Trump used his constitutional authority to fire Comey as the bureau’s director.  Attorney General Jeff Sessions later fired Comey’s deputy, Andrew McCabe, after the inspector general found that he lied about a media disclosure related to Clinton.

It is possible that others could yet face discipline.  The inspector general identified five FBI employees, including Strzok and Page, with some connection to the Clinton email case who had exchanged messages expressing hostility toward Trump, support for Clinton or other political views.  Each was referred to the FBI for possible violations of the bureau’s code of conduct.

Strzok was escorted out of the FBI building in June and effectively relieved of work responsibilities, though he technically remained an FBI employee until today.  Will American taxpayers be paying him a pension so that he can live more comfortably than 95% of us?


On Monday, Strzok’s team launched a GoFundMe page with a lengthy statement to raise money for his “legal costs and lost income,” and said on the site that his firing was “apparently driven by political pressure.”  Because Strzok is a senior-level FBI employee, and because the FBI’s No. 2 official directed his firing, he has few realistic avenues left to get back his job.  It’s unclear if he plans to pursue legal action against the bureau.
