FBI fires Peter Strzok whose texts revealed anti-Trump bias amid Bureau's major probes

FBI agent Peter Strzok, who became a central figure in controversy surrounding investigations into alleged Russian meddling and Hillary Clinton’s private email server, has been fired, his attorney has said.

The 21-year FBI veteran was fired Friday afternoon, according to Strzok’s attorney Aitan Goelman.

Strzok, the former deputy assistant director for counterintelligence of the FBI, and his lover FBI attorney Liza paged exchanged texts that showed their negative attitude to Donald Trump among other things  while he was on the teams investigating Hillary Clinton and Trump. He even served on Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s team, until he was reassigned following the discovery of text messages between him and Page, a FBI attorney who has since resigned.

“This decision should be deeply troubling to all Americans,” Goelman said in a statement released on Monday, adding that the bureau’s deputy director had “overruled” the FBI’s Office of Professional Responsibility concerning Strzok’s case.

Strzok’s firing comes just days after President Donald Trump took to Twitter to denounce  him and other FBI officials as “clowns and losers” who have tarnished the reputation of the bureau.
