Five Things to Know About Anti-Trump FBI Agent Peter Strzok
DECEMBER 06, 2017
FBI Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation is under intense scrutiny after it was revealed that he dismissed investigator Peter Strzok for anti-Trump texts he sent to a fellow employee — a revelation that has fueled concerns of bias at the FBI.
Strzok is not the only agent accused of having a left-leaning bias. Documents obtained by Judicial Watch show that the prosecutor now serving as Mueller’s top deputy sent an email in January gushing over then-Acting Attorney General Sally Yates’ refusal to enforce President Trump’s travel ban.
“I am so proud. And in awe. Thank you so much. All my deepest respects,” said Andrew Weissman in the email, one of a number of supportive emails Yates received from DOJ colleagues.
