#BREAKING FBI fires agent Peter #Strzok over anti-Trump texts. He’s the 3rd prominent FBI officials (along with Comey and McCabe) fired over Clinton and Russia probes.…
Strzok's lawyer said the move to fire him undercuts repeated assurances Strzok would be afforded the normal disciplinary process. He was fired by FBI Director Wray's Deputy Bowdich, overriding Office of Prof Responsibility. Trump's abusive pressure on DOJ & Sessions is working.
Wray, Sessions bowed to Trump's improper pressure to fire Strzok, one of "bad players" on his purge list. Trump's already using it to further press to end Mueller, even tho Strzok hasn't been on Russia probe for over a yr. This is a dangerous erosion of independence in FBI & DOJ.
Trump's purge isn't only of Strzok, Comey & McCabe. Other FBI/DOJ witnesses/investigators have been smeared, demoted, fired. Trump's incessant interference into an investigation of himself is dictionary definition abuse of power and obstruction of justice.
Recall Trump pressed Sessions & Wray for derogatory information from FBI files to discredit & fire Strzok. "Who will Trump go after next" is now a question all in govt must ask, damaging morale & national security. Shame on GOP for enabling this nightmare.
An alarming day when veteran FBI agent @petestrzok—whose counterintelligence expertise exposed Russia's infiltration, incl'g the "illegals" (spies fictionalized in @TheAmericansFX)—is fired & a POTUS who may be compromised by Russia remains in office. ✊👇
