Washington - An FBI agent removed from special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigative team over politically charged text messages referred to Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump as an “idiot.”


The Associated Press reviewed dozens of text messages between FBI counterintelligence agent Peter Strzok (struhk) and FBI lawyer Lisa Page. The Justice Department turned the messages over to Congress on Tuesday.

Strzok was among the agents working with Mueller to investigate potential coordination between Trump and the Russia campaign. He was also heavily involved in the investigation last year into Democrat Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server.

The text messages ended in late 2016, months before Mueller’s appointment.

Strzok left the team last summer after the texts were discovered.

The article is short on details. The guy in question (and the person he was e-mailing) seems like a blatant Clinton groupie, trashing (apparently on company time and company equipment?) not only the entire Republican party (and voters!) but also non-Clinton Democrats such as Sanders. (The impression I get by reading between the lines is that they were musing how to affect the election). Yet this is the guy who was constructively in charge of the Clinton investigations as well as having held such positions as deputy head of FBI counter-intelligence (and considered leading expert on Russia, yet what did he do, for example, to prevent the human catastrophe in, say, Syria?)
