[Ed. – Gotta be an angle here. Is he trying to limit what can be exposed about his actions in 2016-17, by having an active lawsuit in the courts when DOJ IG Hororwitz and Barr/Durham are ready to make their findings public? Whatever it is, Strzok probably can’t afford this, in the financial sense. Who’s paying for it?]
Peter Strzok, the former FBI agent who opened the bureau’s Russia probe in 2016 and later became a symbol of alleged “deep state” animus for Donald Trump, is suing the government over his firing.
In a lawsuit filed on Tuesday, Strzok excoriates the Justice Department and FBI for their handling of his dismissal over a trove of text messages he wrote to a colleague that were critical of Trump. Strzok accuses the president of inappropriately bullying law enforcement officials deciding his fate, raises questions about why his texts were leaked to the media and lambastes the administration for only defending its employees’ free speech rights when they are praising Trump.
