Mueller Removed FBI Agent From Russia Investigation Over Possible Anti-Trump Texts

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

The move came after the Justice Department began probing whether the agent had sent anti-Trump text messages.

Though, Fox News reports the role Strzok played in the Clinton investigation may now be under review at the Department of Justice. The people briefed on the case said the transfer followed the discovery of text messages in which Mr. Strzok and a colleague reacted to news events, like presidential debates, in ways that could appear anti-Trump.

The Post reported that Strzok and Page exchanged texts that were anti-Trump and pro-Clinton. Page left Mueller's team weeks before news of the text messages broke, Carr added.

When the issue arose, Strzok was taken off the Mueller team in August and he was given a job in the human resources division of the Federal Bureau of Investigation - widely viewed as a demotion internally, according to people familiar with the matter. The two were involved in a romantic relationship, the Post reported.

The Justice Department 's Office of the Inspector General said in a statement Saturday that it has been "reviewing allegations involving communications between certain individuals, and will report its findings regarding those allegations promptly upon completion of the review of them".




"And "ANTI-TRUMP FBI AGENT LED CLINTON EMAIL PROBE" Now it all starts to make sense!"

The office of Special Counsel Robert Mueller, pictured here on June 21, removed investigator Peter Strzok over allegations about text messages he exchanged. One of the sources said the probe will be completed by "very early next year".

Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.), chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, has instructed his staff to draw up a contempt of Congress citation for FBI Director Christopher Wray and his deputy, Rod Rosenstein, after it was revealed Saturday that a top FBI agent was removed from the Trump-Russia investigation for possible anti-Trump bias.

Current and former law enforcement officials who worked with Strzok - who remains assigned to the FBI's human resources department - told the Times that they are unaware of any incidents in which the agent allowed his political views to influence investigations.

One of the only times I've ever seen my father, a career military man and Vietnam veteran, express genuine concern over the direction of our country was in the wake of the FBI's fall from grace under James Comey.
