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

Mueller Reportedly Removed FBI Agent from Investigation Due to Anti-Trump Texts

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

The people discussing the matter did not further describe the political messages between Strzok and Page, except to say the two would sometime react to campaign news of the moment.

During the Clinton investigation, Strzok was having an affair with a senior FBI lawyer named Lisa Page, the Post said.

"Immediately upon learning of the allegations, the Special Counsel's Office removed Peter Strzok from the investigation", Peter Carr, a spokesman for Mueller, said in a statement.

Yemen's Saleh says open to talks with Saudi-led coalition
Together these groups have been fighting against the Saudi-backed forces of ousted President Abdrabbuh Mansur Hadi since 2015. The war in Yemen, the poorest country of the Arab world, is one of the biggest humanitarian disasters of our times.

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.

An internal investigation first reported on Saturday revealed text messages sent by Strzok could be seen as supporting Clinton.

"In light of today's press reports, we now know why Strzok was dismissed, why the Federal Bureau of Investigation and DoJ refused to provide us this explanation, and at least one reason why they previously refused to make Deputy Director McCabe available to the Committee for an interview", said Nunes.

The revelation of Strzok's removal, and the reasons for it, are a huge blow to the credibility of Mueller's inquiry, which critics have long claimed is riddled with partisan conflicts of interest.

The Clinton investigation formally ended in July 2016, when former FBI Director James B. Comey announced he would recommend Clinton face no charges for her use of a private email server as Secretary of State.

By hiding from Congress, and from the American people, documented political bias by a key FBI head investigator for both the Russian Federation collusion probe and the Clinton email investigation, the FBI and DOJ engaged in a willful attempt to thwart Congress' constitutional oversight responsibility.

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.

The president has also singled out the F.B.I.'s deputy director, Andrew McCabe, whose wife in 2015 ran for a State Senate seat in Virginia as a Democrat and accepted almost $500,000 in contributions from the political organization of Gov. Terry McAuliffe, a longtime friend of the Clintons.
