Mueller Reassigned Top FBI Agent in Russia Probe over anti-Trump Texts

Report Mueller Reassigned Top FBI Agent in Russia Probe over anti Trump Texts

Peter Strzok, a veteran FBI investigator, was shuffled off to the FBI's human resources department by Mueller after the Justice Department's inspector general opened an investigation into the texts, The New York Times reported on Saturday.

"By hiding from Congress, and from the American people, documented political bias by a key FBI head investigator for both the Russian Federation collusion probe and the Clinton email investigation, the FBI and DOJ engaged in a willful attempt to thwart Congress' constitutional oversight responsibility", he said.

Confirmation of the agent's dismissal from his role on Mueller's team came after two reports surfaced that said the agent may have shared texts that were critical of President Donald Trump. But in August, news outlets reported that he was no longer involved in the special counsel effort.

The other livestream is for members of Slooh , an online organization devoted to teaching about astronomy and space exploration. NASA reports that December's supermoon is actually the first of three back-to-back supermoons to happen in the next two months.

Nunes and the committee had known about Strzok's removal for months, but not the reasons for it, which were only revealed on Saturday in what York suggested was an "orchestrated leak" to the Times and the Post.

The inquiry into Mr. Strzok is being conducted by the Justice Department's inspector general, Michael E. Horowitz, who is leading a broad examination of how the F.B.I. handled the Clinton email investigation. They said he was deeply trusted by former Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey, and he would have likely become one of the FBI's top officials if issues had not been raised surrounding the text messages.

Officials are now reviewing the communications to see if they show evidence of political bias in their work on the cases, a review which could result in a public report, according to people familiar with the matter.
