I’m deeply embarrassed that Peter Strzok’s career was ruined by my father’s political grandstanding. That committee hearing was a low point for Congress.— Bobby Goodlatte (@rsg) August 13, 2018
Thank you for your service sir. You are a patriot https://t.co/3dNN3AlXCZ
Mr. Strzok’s attorney confirmed to The Washington Post Monday that his client was fired from the federal agency because of anti-Trump messages he sent to his then-lover and fellow FBI employee Lisa Page.
The termination was handed down by Deputy Director David Bowdich in a move that was much harsher than the FBI’s disciplinary office initially called for.
In July, Mr. Strzok had a public testimony in front of the House Judiciary and Oversight committees, which the elder Mr. Goodlatte led. Republican lawmakers grilled the agent, who denied being politically biased despite his opinionated text messages.
