Fitton: Judicial Watch Sues FBI for Records About Removal of Alleged Anti-Trump FBI Official from Mueller Team
DECEMBER 18, 2017
The FBI and Department of Justice (DOJ) are engulfed in a rule of law crisis because of new revelations of evident bias among FBI officials and key DOJ prosecutors. Recently, we exposed that Andrew Weissmann, a top Robert Mueller special counsel deputy, has anti-Trump bias. And last week, we were in the forefront of a related scandal about an anti-Trump bias infecting the top echelons of the FBI.
On Sunday, we filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit against the FBI for records about the removal and reassignment of Peter Strzok, a former deputy to the assistant director for counterintelligence at the FBI, from the special counsel’s investigative team, led by former FBI Director Robert Mueller. Strzok also was the FBI’s chief of the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s illicit email server, interviewing Hillary Clinton himself on July 2, 2016.
