Robert Mueller’s “right hand man” Peter Strzok has found himself in big trouble.
The former investigator of Mueller’s Russia probe was removed after anti-Trump text messages were found.
And what was found in those text messages may end his entire career.
The text messages between Strzok and another FBI official, Lisa Page, refer to Donald Trump as a “loathsome human” and “an idiot.”
More than 10,000 messages are being reviewed by the Justice Department, but some of the messages have already been released.
As reported by Fox News:
“Text messages between FBI officials Peter Strzok and Lisa Page in 2016 that were obtained by Fox News on Tuesday refer to then-candidate Donald Trump as a “loathsome human” and “an idiot.”
More than 10,000 texts between Strzok and Page were being reviewed by the Justice Department after Strzok was removed from Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia probe after it was revealed that some of them contained anti-Trump content.
The messages were sent during the 2016 campaign and contain discussions about various candidates. On March 2, Strzok texted Page that someone “asked me who I’d vote for, guessed [Ohio Gov. John] Kasich.”
“Seriously?! Would you not [vote] D[emocrat]?” Page responded.
“I don’t know,” Strzok answered. “I suppose Hillary [Clinton].”
“I would [vote] D,” Page affirmed.
Two days later, Page texted Strzok, “God, Trump is a loathsome human.”
“Yet he many[sic] win,” Strzok responded. “Good for Hillary.”
Later the same day, Strzok texted Page, “Omg [Trump’s] an idiot.”
“He’s awful,” Page answered.
“America will get what the voting public deserves,” said Strzok, to which Page responded. “That’s what I’m afraid of.”
Later that same day, Strzok texted Page, “Ok I may vote for Trump.”
“What?” answered Page. “Poor Kasich. He’s the only sensible man up there.”
“He was pretty much calling for death for [NSA leaker] Edward Snowden,” Strzok said. “I’m a single-issue voter. 😉 Espionage Machine Party.”
Strzok later told Page, “Exacty [sic] re Kasich. And he has ZERO appeal.”
Twelve days later, after Trump took a commanding lead in the Republican delegate race with victories in key “Super Tuesday” primaries, Page texted Strzok, “I can not believe Donald Trump is likely to be an actual, serious candidate for president.””
Had Strzok been a private citizen, these text messages would just be standard liberal conversation points.
But because he was a part of the probe into President Trump’s connection with Russia, this is troubling news for anyone who believes in a fair and unbiased justice system.
Even more troubling, Strzok was the FBI agent who performed the interview with Michael Flynn that resulted in his guilty plea.
If he went into that interview with the express purpose of taking down the President, it isn’t very surprising that it went badly for Flynn.
These text messages could end up bringing the entirety of Mueller’s Russia investigation into question.
Should Trump fire Robert Mueller?
