Peter Strzok, a former FBI counterintelligence agent and ex-member of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigative team, was found to have sent texts that proved his vehement anti-Trump fervor. During testimony Wednesday, US Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY), shrugged the hyper-partisanship off.
“Peter Strzok wasn’t saying anything about Donald Trump that the majority of Americans weren’t also thinking at the same time," said Nadler. He is the ranking Democrat on the House Judiciary Committee.
Nadler was responding to texts of Strzok's that called President Trump a "f*cking idiot" and a "douche" and writing "F TRUMP." Mueller has since dismissed Strzok from the Special Counsel team.
While it is a constitutional right to hold political views, and to even redress government, Strzok's views on Donald Trump should have eliminated him from both investigating anything to do with Mr. Trump and consideration for the Special Counsel position.
This is proof that Mr. Mueller failed to properly vet for bias in his investigative team and casts a dark shadow over the legitimacy of the Special Counsel.
Further, it proves beyond doubt that there are people in positions of influence and consequence who are violating their oaths of office to remain non-political in the execution of their positions and whose biases are compromising the governmental process.
