FBI Agent Who Sent Anti-Trump Texts Escorted From Building on Friday
Peter Strzok, the FBI agent at the center of controversy over anti- Trump texts he sent during an investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server, was escorted from his FBI building Friday as part of the Bureau’s internal disciplinary process, his lawyer said Tuesday.
Aitan Goelman, the attorney, said in a statement that Mr. Strzok remained employed at the Federal Bureau of Investigation and “has steadfastly played by the rules” despite the “highly questionable” nature of the internal investigation.
A spokeswoman for the FBI, agent Jacqueline Maguire, didn’t immediately respond to emails seeking comment on Mr. Strzok’s status.
The precise nature of Mr. Strzok’s current employment status wasn’t clear, but a person close to the agent said he has essentially been suspended with pay. In his statement, Mr. Goelman said his client was “escorted from the building as part of the ongoing internal proceedings.”
A little bird told me he already cut a deal and will be fired after he testifies in front of Congress. Then he will be formally charged and arrested for criminal conspiracy. Many more will follow. Enjoy the show...
