Text-Messaging Anti-Trump FBI Agent Strzok Fired

Text-Messaging Anti-Trump FBI Agent Strzok Fired

Strzok was sacked on Friday following politically charged text messages that disparaged the president and came under fire from Republicans in June.

Texts between the two included their observations of the 2016 election and criticism of Trump.

"Trump quoted Swecker's column in a Twitter post on Wednesday, saying, "'The action (the Strzok firing) was a decisive step in the right direction in correcting the wrongs committed by what has been described as Comey's skinny inner circle.' Chris Swecker, former FBI Assistant Director".

President Donald Trump immediately welcomed Strzok's firing and used the occasion to lash out once again at the investigation by Special Counsel Robert Mueller into whether there was any collusion between Russian Federation and the Trump election campaign.

In one exchange, Page wrote Trump "is not ever going to become president, right?" For months, Strzok had been criticized for injecting bias into both the Hillary Clinton email investigation and the Trump/Russia collusion investigation.

Republicans were livid during the July hearing, which several times devolved into a partisan shouting match.

The account completely fooled Fox News online columnist and former Federal Bureau of Investigation official Chris Swecker, who wrote in a column quoted by the political site Think Progress, "Strzok is now engaged in an unhinged Twitter rant of vitriol towards President Trump that matches the hatred he expressed for Trump in his texts with Page".

There is no indication that the probe will be dropped.

The decision to fire Strzok should be "deeply troubling to all Americans", said his attorney Aitan Goelman.

"It is a total Hoax".

Fitton said the Justice Department and the FBI need to examine the way the Mueller investigation has been using the evidence Strzok gathered and determine whether or not it has been used to target Trump.
