Report: Mueller FIRED FBI agent over political texts…

This is interesting. For months we’ve heard people like Sean Hannity attack Mueller for hiring what appeared to be pro-Democrat FBI investigators and lawyers for his team looking into Russian collusion et al.

Like this:

Now we have this report:

Special counsel Robert Mueller removed a veteran FBI agent from his team amid an investigation into the agent potentially sending anti-Trump text messages, according to new reports on Saturday.

Three people close to the matter told The New York Times that Mueller reassigned Peter Strzok from the team investigating Russia’s election meddling to the FBI’s human resources department.

Strzok is a veteran FBI investigator who previously worked on the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server while she was secretary of State, as well as the investigation into potential connections between President Trump’s campaign and Russian officials.
The Times reported that Strzok was removed from Mueller’s team after the Department of Justice’s inspector general launched an investigation into text messages sent by the agent that could appear to contain anti-Trump views.

The agent reportedly exchanged text messages with FBI lawyer Lisa Page, whom he was dating, during the campaign and Clinton investigation that appeared to support the Democratic presidential candidate, people with knowledge of the matter told The Washington Post.

So is that a good sign or is it just Mueller trying to cover his Obama after so much criticism from pro-Trump forces?

Here’s a nutty theory from the more bat-crap crazy corner of Trumpism:

Sure buddy.
