Mueller Removed FBI Agent From Russia Investigation Over Possible Anti-Trump Texts

Mueller Removed FBI Agent From Russia Investigation Over Possible Anti-Trump Texts

Generally, my dad is upbeat about the perseverance of Americans because of his extensive study of our nation's history and his belief in American exceptionalism.

ABC News reported back in August that Strzok had left the investigation, but said at the time "it's unclear why Strzok stepped away from Mueller's team of almost two dozen lawyers, investigators and administrative staffers".

The New York Times and Washington Post both reported Saturday FBI special agent Peter Strzok - who played key roles in the FBI's initial Russian Federation investigation, special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation and the Clinton email investigation - was removed from Mueller's investigation after it was discovered he exchanged anti-Trump text messages with FBI lawyer Lisa Page, whom he was having an extramarital affair with.

Strzok was removed this summer after the inspector general of Justice Department discovered him and another person from Mueller's team exchanging anti-Trump text messages. He sent the text messages to Lisa Page, an FBI lawyer who also left the Mueller investigation this past summer.

The text messages showed Strzok and Page reacting with anti-Trump sentiments to certain news events, including the presidential debates.

Massage Envy therapists accused of 180 sexual assaults
Accuser Susan Ingram told CBS News that she was groped "roughly and aggressively" by her masseur in a 2015 visit to Massage Envy. Massage Envy has over 1,200 locations nationwide with alleged sexual assault in many different locations.

During the Clinton email investigation, Page was a regular participant when Comey would hold "skinny group" meetings on the case - a small collection of advisers that gathered to address sensitive cases, according to people familiar with the case. In a busy morning of notes to his 44 million followers, Mr. Trump earlier said that "I never asked" former FBI Director James Comey "to stop investigating Flynn".

Peter Strzok, who as an Federal Bureau of Investigation official helped oversee the probe into Hillary Clinton's use of a personal email server, joined Mueller's team after it launched in May. He helped lead the investigation into whether Hillary Clinton mishandled classified information on her private email account, and then played a major role in the investigation into links between President Trump's campaign and Russian Federation.

A spokesperson for Mueller's team confirmed to BuzzFeed News that Strzok was no longer assigned part of the investigation.

A lawyer for Storzok declined to comment. A spokeswoman at the Justice Department said "we are aware of the allegation and taking any and all appropriate steps".
