A former high ranking counterintelligence analyst at the FBI who was fired for sending text messages that mocked President Donald Trump also played a very big role in cases involving former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, the Russia investigation, and former National Security adviser Michael Flynn.

As reported by Fox News, Peter Strzok was removed from Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s probe earlier this year for exchanging anti-Trump text messages with a colleague.

Following his removal, the Office of Inspector General launched an investigation into Strzok to determine if there was a politically-motivated pattern of behavior with his work at the FBI.

Electronic records showed that Strzok was the number two official in the counterintelligence division at the FBI that led the investigation into Clinton’s email scandal.

As noted by CNN, Strzok was the official who changed former FBI Director James Comey’s earlier draft language describing Clinton’s actions as “grossly negligent” to “extremely careless.”

Changing the language has massive political ramifications, and Strzok was trying to save Clinton from legal backlash.

“Grossly negligent” is when a person demonstrates reckless behavior that disregards the lives and safety of others. That is what Clinton did when she sent and received classified information on her private email server.

Federal law indicates that the mishandling of classified material establishes criminal penalties, which is why Strzok changed Comey’s draft statement in July 2016 to read “extremely careless.”

Here’s Comey’s statement last year, where he said “extremely careless” and not “grossly negligent.”

It was also reported that Strzok was the FBI agent who signed the federal document activating the investigation into alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election.

According to Circa reporter Sara Carter, Strzok took part in the Jan. 24 interview with then-National Security adviser Michael Flynn. Flynn entered a guilty plea last week for lying to the FBI in December 2016 about meetings with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak.

To recap, here’s what he know.

A top FBI investigator was fired from Mueller’s team for sending anti-Trump text messages. Upon an OIG review, it was determined that Strzok was the agent who changed the language in Comey’s draft statement last year, which indicated the bureau wouldn’t be charging Clinton in the email scandal.

We also know that Strzok is the agent who signed documents that launched the Russia investigation into whether Trump colluded with the Russians during the 2016 election. He is also the man who interviewed Flynn, who was happened to be indicated last week.

This one pro-Clinton agent has had the power to launch an investigation into Trump and give Clinton a free pass for putting American lives and our national security at risk for years.

This is why the American people no longer trust our government agencies and believe partisan hacks like Strzok are making decisions that are politically motivated.
