Fired FBI agent Peter Strzok files wrongful termination suit
How utterly adorable. Still, it should keep him busy for a while, and out of more serious trouble.
[NYPOST] A former FBI agent who worked the feds’ investigation into Russian election meddling ‐ and who sent text messages slamming then-candidate Donald Trump
...Oh, noze! Not him!...
‐ filed a lawsuit Tuesday charging that the bureau caved to "unrelenting pressure" from the president when it fired him.

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 news hounds.

"The campaign to publicly vilify Special Agent Strzok contributed to the FBI’s ultimate decision to unlawfully terminate him," said the lawsuit, filed in federal court in Washington, DC, "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."

The complaint, which names Attorney General William Barr and FBI Director Chris Wray as defendants, revives a controversy that conservative critics of special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation called proof that the FBI was biased against Trump.

#4 Is it possible for all the discovery to be classified before it even hits the court?

#8 Is he still married? Having your husband's affair discussed on national TV would seem to be a good reason for divorce.

#9 If she isn't divorced yet, I'd imagine her lawyer is saying she should wait to see how his case shakes out to see if he recovers anything she can then go after half of...

#10 I suspect I'll always believe the alleged Strzok-Page 'love affair' was little more than a cover for action.

#11 Chutzpah on steroids. I'm surprised the guy is not in jail yet.

#12 Did Strzok lose his OGA gig too or is he still operating in that capacity?

#13 Page is at ZG ZwillGen currently. Don't know what Strzak is doing. His wife is a high grade employee at the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).

#14 ZG was involved in a SEC case in Oct of last year. Probably just a coincidence... big town, lots of law firms.
