Peter Strzok Fired, Finally;
Lawyer Claims Something Something Freedom of Speech

Jagoff.

FBI official Peter Strzok, who played a lead role in both the Russian meddling and Hillary Clinton email probes but became a political lightning rod after the revelation of anti-Trump text messages, has been fired.

Strzok attorney Aitan Goelman said in a statement Monday that his client, a 21-year FBI veteran, was fired Friday afternoon, claiming this was a departure from standard practice and politically motivated. Goelman said bureau Deputy Director David Bowdich "overruled" the FBI's Office of Professional Responsibility.

"This decision should be deeply troubling to all Americans," the attorney said.

I can practically smell the Americans in Walmart feeling troubled, bub.

President Trump and his allies for months, though, have hammered Strzok and cast him as the poster child for anti-Trump bias within the bureau and Justice Department.

Reacting to the firing, the president tweeted, "finally," while asking whether the Russia case will now be dropped:

"Agent Peter Strzok was just fired from the FBI - finally. The list of bad players in the FBI & DOJ gets longer & longer. Based on the fact that Strzok was in charge of the Witch Hunt, will it be dropped? It is a total Hoax. No Collusion, No Obstruction - I just fight back!"

The president over the weekend had tweeted that Strzok and others have "badly damaged" the FBI's reputation, referring to them as "clowns and losers!"

He's not wrong.

Meanwhile, the SJW Strzok sends out his lawyer to whine for him:
