Whoa! The Deeds of the Fired FBI Agent in Mueller’s Russia Probe Are so Much Worse!

Hold up… Seriously. Who is Peter Strzok, the FBI agent Robert Mueller bounced from his investigatory team for sending what was considered inflammatory text messages to his girlfriend about Trump?

This guy’s name keeps popping up, and not in a good way.

Apparently, he’s the worst kind of partisan, and in fact, former FBI Director James Comey has carried heat for something this guy did.

Namely, the change in language in the statement Comey gave in the Hillary Clinton email investigation was Strzok’s handiwork.

From The Hill:

Peter Strzok, who served as a counterintelligence expert at the bureau, changed the description of Clinton’s actions in Comey’s statement, CNN reported Monday, citing U.S. officials familiar with the matter.

One source told the news outlet that electronic records reveal that Strzok changed the language from “grossly negligent” to “extremely careless,” scrubbing a key word that could have had legal ramifications for Clinton. An individual who mishandled classified material could be prosecuted under federal law for “gross negligence.”

This is unbelievable, and it raises the question as to whether the case can be revisited.

It gets worse, if you can imagine that.

Strzok was the second-in-charge of the investigation into Clinton’s email scandal.

And if you’ve got a sick, queasy kind of heat building in the pit of your stomach, it’s not your dinner repeating on you.

A group of people were part of the drafting process, using a red pen on Comey’s statement before he publicly came forward, another U.S. official familiar with the matter told CNN.

So Strzok knew if the language stayed as it was, it would mean Clinton was going down, and it was his goal to protect her.

Senator Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), head of the Senate Judiciary Committee, had questioned the revised language after getting a look at the FBI records last month.

I don’t know where they go from here, but just firing him from the Russia investigation isn’t enough. Besides some sort of disciplinary action against Strzok, there needs to be a complete revisiting of that case.
