Donald Trump: FBI’s Reputation ‘Worst in History’ After James Comey and Peter Strzok

It did not take President Donald Trump long to weigh in after FBI reports uncovered investigator Peter Strzok’s bias against the president and for Hillary Clinton.

“After years of Comey, with the phony and dishonest Clinton investigation (and more), running the FBI, its reputation is in Tatters – worst in History!” he wrote on Twitter. “But fear not, we will bring it back to greatness.”

Trump made his comments after Fox News reported that the Justice Department was reviewing the role that former deputy director for counterintelligence Peter Strzok played in the Hillary Clinton email investigation, Breitbart reports.

Special Counsel Robert Mueller dismissed Strzok from the Russia investigation after discovering that he sent anti-Trump texts with a colleague.

“Tainted (no, very dishonest?) FBI ‘agent’s role in Clinton probe under review,’” Trump wrote. “Led Clinton Email probe. Clinton money going to wife of another FBI agent in charge.”

Strzok also participated in the the Russia investigation which included the anti-Trump phony dossier funded by Hillary Clinton and the DNC.

An outraged House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes is preparing to cite FBI officials for contempt of Congress, after the agency appeared to be stalling the investigation.

Two senior Justice Department officials have confirmed to Fox News that the department’s Office of Inspector General is reviewing the role played in the Hillary Clinton email investigation by Peter Strzok, a former deputy director for counterintelligence at the FBI who was removed from the staff of Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller III earlier this year, after Mueller learned that Strzok had exchanged anti-Trump texts with a colleague.

A source close to the matter said the OIG probe, which will examine Strzok’s roles in a number of other politically sensitive cases, should be completed by “very early next year.”

The task will be exceedingly complex, given Strzok’s consequential portfolio. He participated in the FBI’s fateful interview with Hillary Clinton on July 2, 2016 – just days before then-FBI Director James Comey announced he was declining to recommend prosecution of Mrs. Clinton in connection with her use, as secretary of state, of a private email server.

As deputy FBI director for counterintelligence, Strzok also enjoyed liaison with various agencies in the intelligence community, including the CIA, then led by Director John Brennan.
