The firing of Peter Strzok is another body blow to the credibility of the Mueller special counsel operation. Strzok, who hated President Trump, compromised both the Clinton and Trump investigations that saw Hillary Clinton protected and Donald Trump illicitly targeted. Strzok's anti-Trump texts show the Russia investigation he helped invent with Clinton campaign operatives is irredeemably compromised. As Mueller's operation is founded on Strzok's corrupt activities, it must be shut down.
Judicial Watch recently uncovered documents showing that Strzok insisted on retaining his FBI security clearance before moving to the Mueller team and confirming that Strzok played a pivotal role in the flawed Hillary Clinton email investigation. And, previously released records from the DOJ reveal Strzok's and Page's profanity-laced disdain for FBI hierarchy and policies.
