The FBI fired agent Peter Strzok last week over text messages he sent during the 2016 presidential campaign criticizing then-candidate Donald Trump. Special counsel Robert Mueller removed Strzok a year ago from the team investigating Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election, and the FBI had been reviewing his employment. Strzok’s lawyer, Aitan Goelman, said FBI Deputy Director David Bowdich fired Strzok on Friday.
