FBI official Peter Strzok was escorted from bureau headquarters on Friday amid a disciplinary review of anti-Trump text messages he exchanged with another FBI official, his attorney said in a statement Tuesday.
“Just as he has been for the last 20 years, Pete Strzok remains a proud FBI agent who wants to continue working to keep the American people safe,” said Strzok’s attorney, Aitan Goelman.
Goelman said that Strzok remains an FBI employee. It is unclear if he will be fired soon or whether his access to FBI headquarters was restricted.
The Department of Justice’s inspector general (IG) referred Strzok and four other FBI officials to the bureau for disciplinary action for politically-charged text messages they sent in 2016 and 2017.

This man should be fired and striped of his pension. To tolerate this kind of conduct is to condone it. The FBI should be in the LAW ENFORCEMENT business – NOT POLITICS!!!!!!
I have never believed that action should be taken against anyone without positive proof. In this case there is NO DOUBT and these people should be fired and stripped of any benefits. I am not talking from a political side here. I’m independent and I would take the same stand regardless of which side this came on. We absolutely cannot have our law enforcement people pulling things like this. Individual agents are entitled to their political beliefs and votes. But we cannot allow them to try to influence others or interfere with elections.
They should be fired without any benefit
FIRE his treasonous ass and get it over with. WE THE PEOPLE have something to say about that and we want that SCUM GONE and SWEPT out into the street with the debris where they belong
Goelman said that Strzok remains an FBI employee. Only a government employee would still be employed. The rest of us would be in the unemployment line.
