FBI fires Peter Strzok, months after anti-Trump texts revealed

• by Judson Berger and Brooke Singman

Strzok attorney Aitan Goelman said in a statement Monday that his client, a 21-year FBI veteran, was fired Friday afternoon, claiming this was a departure from standard practice and politically motivated. Goelman said bureau Deputy Director David Bowdich "overruled" the FBI's Office of Professional Responsibility to remove him. 

"This decision should be deeply troubling to all Americans," the attorney said. 

Strzok appeared to launch a new Twitter account to fire back, saying he's "deeply saddened" by the decision and linking to a GoFundMe page.
