Well, that took long enough, The FBI has finally fired rogue agent Peter Strzok for his anti-Trump texts.
According to The Washington Post:
Aitan Goelman, Strzok’s lawyer, said FBI Deputy Director David L. Bowdich ordered the firing on Friday — even though the director of the FBI office that normally handles employee discipline had decided Strzok should face only a demotion and 60-day suspension. Goelman said the move undercuts the FBI’s repeated assurances that Strzok would be afforded the normal disciplinary process.
“This isn’t the normal process in any way more than name,” Goelman said.
The FBI declined to comment.
The termination marks a remarkable downfall for Strzok, a 22-year veteran of the bureau who investigated Russian spies, defense officials accused of selling secrets to China and myriad other important cases. In the twilight of his career, Strzok was integral to two of the bureau’s most high-profile investigations: the Russia case, and the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server while secretary of state.
But when a Justice Department inspector general investigation uncovered politically charged messages that Strzok had exchanged with another FBI official, he was relegated to a position in human resources. Conservatives soon made Strzok the face of their attacks against the special counsel investigation into the president’s campaign, and the FBI took steps to remove him from its ranks.
So, how the heck did it take this long for the FBI to fire this guy, anyway?
This crook was revealed as horribly biased against the very people he was tasked with “investigating”! Yet, it took this many years to finally fire him?
If this guy had done similar things in the private sector he’d have been fired in weeks, not years. Diddling around with a subordinate and having affairs like he did would have been enough for a private business to fire him in the era of #MeToo, not to mention his terribly biased actions!
Still, at least he has been cashiered out of the service. That is a good thing.
So, finally we are done with this creepy guy…
So, how much you wanna bet he is already taking meetings to become the next talking head on CNN?
