Peter Strzok Sues DOJ, FBI Over Firing For Anti-Trump Texts

2170

Anti-Trump former FBI agent Peter Strzok is suing the Justice Department, FBI, Attorney General William Barr and FBI Director Christopher Wray after he was fired over a trove of text messages between he and his paramour, former FBI lawyer Lisa Page.

In a suit filed Tuesday, Strzok claims that the FBI caved to “unrelenting pressure” from President Trump when he was fired, according to the Associated Press.

The suit from Peter Strzok also alleges he was unfairly punished for expressing his political opinions, and that the Justice Department violated his privacy when it shared hundreds of his text messages with reporters. –Associated Press

“The campaign to publicly vilify Special Agent Strzok contributed to the FBI’s ultimate decision to unlawfully terminate him,” reads the lawsuit. “as well as to frequent incidents of public and online harassment and threats of violence to Strzok and his family that began when the texts were first disclosed to the media and continue to this day.”

Strzok’s lawsuit accuses the government of violating his First and Fifth Amendment rights by firing him over the text messages, and then depriving him of due process to challenge his ouster. Moreover, Strzok says that the DOJ’s decision to transmit the incendiary messages to reporters before Congress had a chance to see them was “deliberate and unlawful,” and a violation of the Privacy Act.

Strzok’s anti-Trump sentiment came to light after an internal investigation revealed he and Page had exchanged approximately 50,000 text messages – many of which contained obvious animus towards then-candidate Donald Trump.

Strzok’s position in the bureau had been precarious since last summer, when Inspector General Michael E. Horowitz told Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller III that the lead agent on his team had been exchanging anti-Trump messages with an FBI lawyer. The next day, Mueller expelled Strzok from the group.

The lawyer, Lisa Page, had also been a part of Mueller’s team, though she left a few weeks earlier and no longer works for the FBI. She and Strzok were having an affair. –Washington Post

Perhaps the most alarming of the exchanges mentions an “insurance policy” in the event Trump is elected.

I want to believe the path you threw out for consideration in Andy’s office – that there’s no way he [Trump] gets elected – but I’m afraid we can’t take that risk.” Strzok wrote to Page, adding “It’s like a life insurance policy in the unlikely event you die before you’re 40.”

In another text exchange, Strzok tells Page: “I am riled up. Trump is a f*cking idiot, is unable to provide a coherrent answer,” and “I CAN’T PULL AWAY, WHAY THE F*CK HAPPENED TO OUR COUNTRY (redacted)??!?!

Page then messages Strzok, saying “And maybe you’re meant to stay where you are because you’re meant to protect the country from that menace. (links to NYT article), to which Strzok replied “I can protect our country at many levels.”

 

And now, it looks like Strzok is making use of his nearly $450,000 GoFundMe contributions.

  1. IIRC, the electronic devices (phones, whatever) were ISSUED to Strzok and page by the Bureau. If so, that’s government property. Also, if they used a government network for transmitting and receiving messages, the messages are the property of the government and not that individual’s property. Strzok might have a right to his opinions, but if he transmits them on official government equipment on a government network, he has no right to privacy. Courts have upheld this not only for government agencies, but also for private companies. JMO

    • Correct, he does not have a legal basis for the suit. Corrupt judge can still make life interesting though. Nothing surprises me anymore with the acts of desperate, anger filled democrats.

  2. It will all be thrown out he was part of the treasonous plot against our elected President. He needs to be charged for his part and all court and legal fees then lock him up

  3. Actually, WHY is HE NOT in JAIL…??? What about the President’s CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHT to BECOME and BE “President of the United States of America”….???? What about the CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHT of the PEOPLE of THIS country to PICK their President…????

  4. He should have taken the money and slunk away like the snake that he is. He will lose this case and the additional publicity will be very bad for him.

  5. So yet 1 more time a left lib SO SO NEED’s To Be Taken to the woodshed & SCHOOLED. Pete Strzok & Lisa Page let me point out actions you two have done that are NEVER allowed in any workplace not just Federal Government ones, facts you two have done . . .

    1) You used Government Computers, & Cell Phones to do your deeds of stupid actions . . .
    2) You used vile profanity on said systems . . . As in Putus ”T” is a ” F*CKING IDIOT . . .
    3) You said ” What Da F*CK IS HAPPING TO OUR COUNTRY ” . . . I’ll answer that for you & all the other left . . . WE THE PEOPLE DO NOT WANT TO BE IN THE NEW WORLD ORDER BECAUSE IT IS A NETHER NAME FOR A COMMUNIST, UNAMERICAN EVERYTHING & WE ARE NOT COMMUNIST . . .
    4) IN ADDITION, you 2 had or are still having an affair via the not just the office but in fact the federal offices of the F.B.I. In all this is not allowed in any business do to the backlash of getting sewed for allowing sexual improper in the work zone that always end up in court usually as rape . . .
    5) Again at work & on government computer you expressed political opinions of what you are not allowed by law to do. In fact by LAW your not allowed to say anything & remain neutral in all things of that nature . . .
    6) 50,000 + text to each other & now you sound like H.R.C. who can’t find hers . . . That is a lot of time We The People paid you two when you’re where NOT DOING YOUR JOBS . . .

    So face the music you asked for by your own deeds . . .
    NOW YOU GOTTA PAY ! ! ! So stop acting like a temper tantrum hissy fit tossing 5yr old, put your big boy pants back on & go quietly away . . .

    • I would prefer he serve a few months in Stocks on the Village Green where folks who know he is a POS get to beat on him . . . . then, of course the courtroom, but where he will be the Defendant for his Criminal, Seditious and Treasonous acts.

      Then, back to the Stocks for a month before sharing a cell with Bubba, who’s been needing a submissive guy for a few years. 😊

    • this sleeze, had to use his work computer to send messages to his Mistress, because he was cheating on his wife, and she might have found out sooner if he used his OWN computer at home..so he violated all manner of FBI integrity codes, and was fired for lying to his superiors…he hasn’t got a snowball’s chance with this lawsuit which proves what an incompetent babbling fool he is. He disgraced the FBI and if anybody deserved to get fired this smirking jackass did.

  6. THIS IS JUST ANOTHER REASON TO BE FIRED, you are an IDIOT! How did you ever get a job with the FBI and whose ass did you kiss to get to the top besides your whore Lisa Page? Your affair “alone” should have been enough to get you fired. You have to wonder what the FBI, DOJ, and the Department of State were “really” doing during the OBOZO years!?

  7. He will, like so many other bad apples in the FBI, will probably NOT serve prison time.
    There is a double-standard, of course, that must be maintained; so all the other bad apples yet to be discovered can go on to better things (Clapper/Brennan).
    I hope if his case is thrown out, the judge is decent enough to make him pay ALL court costs.
    He does not deserve a pension from the taxpayers, and maybe putting him further in debt will teach a few of his cohorts a lesson.
    He may, of course, sing like a little birdie. Maybe we will finally find out how seditious Obama was.
    My dream is he sings AND serves prison time!

  8. Unfortunately the double standard between democRATS and everyone else makes everything crazy. HRC and Billy Boy Clinton in the private sector would have been fired, HRC would have been in jail just like any sailor that posted a picture of his bunk on a nuclear sub (pardoned by the President of the United States!) Nothing will surprise me anymore, the deep corruption, imbalance and deceit, now rampant in the DOJ, Court System, Media and of course DemocRAT controlled House of Representatives shows how close we are to losing our Constitutional rights to insane lefties. He needs to be in jail for a long, long time. The damage he has done is considerable, his arrogance and utterly disgusting attitude toward free elections and rule of law should include the strongest possible financial and jail time punishment available.

  9. This motherfucker should be prosecuted for treason. Hey Strzok, here’s a news flash for you. If you sent those emails to Page through an FBI server, then those emails don’t belong to you. They belong to the FBI. You cocksucker.
