Washington: An FBI agent whose anti-Trump text messages fueled suspicions of partisan bias will tell lawmakers that his work has never been tainted by politics and that the scrutiny he’s facing represents “just another victory notch in Putin’s belt.” That’s according to prepared remarks obtained by The Associated Press.
Peter Strzok (struhk) helped lead FBI investigations into Hillary Clinton’s email use and potential coordination between Russia and Donald Trump’s campaign.
He is testifying publicly today for the first time since being removed from special counsel Robert Mueller’s team following the discovery of the text messages.
He will say that he has never allowed personal opinions to infect his work and that he knew information during the campaign that could have damaged Trump but never contemplated leaking it.
