His crime? Having sent several messages to Lisa Page, his mistress and colleague, in which he did not hide his dislike for candidate Trump during the 2016 presidential campaign. “He is not going to be president, right? Hey? “, She wrote in a text sent late at night in August 2016.” No. No. We will stop it, “said Peter Strzok. This message in particular aroused the ire of the president’s friends, who saw evidence of a plot hatched by the FBI to sink Donald Trump. This Monday, the agent Strzok was finally dismissed by the FBI, indicates the American press.

Donald Trump was quick to congratulate himself on this dismissal. “Agent Peter Strzok has just been fired from the FBI -finally. The list of bad actors within the FBI and the Ministry of Justice continues to grow. Since Strzok was in charge of the Witch Hunt, will she stop? It’s a complete lie. No collusion, no obstruction – I’m just fighting back! “, The president wrote on Twitter. The “Witches Hunt” is a reference to the investigation into the role of Russia in the 2016 election, led by Robert Mueller. Constable Strzok was involved for a while, before being dismissed after Special Prosecutor Mueller learned of messages between the two lovers.
