Peter Strzok, FBI agent who criticized Trump in texts, is fired


August 14, 2018

WASHINGTON – Peter Strzok, the FBI senior counterintelligence agent who disparaged President Donald Trump in inflammatory text messages and helped oversee the Hillary Clinton e-mail and Russia investigations, has been fired for violating bureau policies, Strzok's lawyer said Monday.

Trump and his allies seized on the texts — exchanged during the 2016 campaign with a former FBI lawyer, Lisa Page — in assailing the Russia investigation as an illegitimate "witch hunt." Strzok, who rose over 20 years at the FBI to become one of its most experienced counterintelligence agents, was a key figure in the early months of the inquiry.
