Mueller Reportedly Removed FBI Agent from Investigation Due to Anti-Trump Texts

Mueller Reportedly Removed FBI Agent from Investigation Due to Anti-Trump Texts

The agent, Peter Strzok, a counterintelligence veteran, was reassigned when the Justice Department inspector general's office found potentially disparaging texts he sent to a colleague, The Washington Post and The New York Times first reported.

Agent Peter Strzok is considered one of the most experienced investigators in the FBI and previously assisted with the Hillary Clinton email investigation, before moving on to investigate Russia's interference in the election.

Strzok exchanged the text messages with another person who had been on Mueller's team, Lisa Page, according to the Post.

To his credit, Special Counsel Robert Mueller, whose investigation has already cost taxpayers over $5 million, shuffled Strzok off to the Siberian bowels of the FBI's human resources department.

The office of Special Counsel Robert Mueller, pictured here on June 21, removed investigator Peter Strzok over allegations about text messages he exchanged. The messages themselves weren't revealed, just the existence of them.

Days later, then-FBI Director James Comey announced that he would not be recommending charges against Clinton for mishandling classified information on her private email server. It quoted people familiar with the issue.

Never in my career, on or off the pitch, was I disrespectful about what they believe they have to do to beat me. And nine points from those games will be a must, if they are to remain in the title race.

Until now, Nunes said, the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Department of Justice have failed to sufficiently comply with an August 24 committee subpoena - including by refusing repeated demands "for an explanation of Peter Strzok's dismissal from the Mueller probe".

Justice Department spokeswoman Sara Isgur Flores said in an email that "we disagree with the chairman's characterization and will continue to work with congressional committees to provide the information they request consistent with our national security responsibilities".

Meanwhile, Mueller continues to lead the investigation into alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election, despite a complete lack of evidence that Russia interfered in the process in any way.

By hiding from Congress, and from the American people, documented political bias by a key FBI head investigator for both the Russian Federation collusion probe and the Clinton email investigation, the FBI and DOJ engaged in a willful attempt to thwart Congress' constitutional oversight responsibility.

A spokesperson for Mueller's team confirmed to BuzzFeed News that Strzok was no longer assigned part of the investigation.
