(CBS NEWS) – Peter Strzok — the FBI special agent who was heavily criticized by President Trump, the president’s allies and a blistering Justice Department Inspector General report — has officially been fired from the FBI, according to his lawyer.
Strzok became the face of everything Mr. Trump and his allies viewed as problematic with the FBI, after the revelation that he and onetime fellow FBI agent Lisa Page exchanged anti-Trump text messages.
Strzok worked on the Hillary Clinton email investigation, and then special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe into Russian election meddling and any ties to Trump associates.
He was removed from the Mueller probe after the messages were discovered, and moved to a different office still within the FBI. Strzok was escorted from FBI headquarters in June, after a DOJ watchdog report was critical of his actions.
