FBI agent Peter Strzok escorted from building amid internal review
FBI counterintelligence agent Peter Strzok was escorted from the building amid an internal review of his conduct, his lawyer confirmed Tuesday.

Strzok, who had a central role in the FBI investigation into Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server while serving as secretary of State, was reportedly escorted from the FBI building on Friday amid an internal review of his conduct.

Giuliani says he was interviewed by the FBI over the leaks from the FBI NY office in 2016

Strzok is an idiot. He should've known enough to keep his political opinions private rather than plastering them all over the FBI servers. There's nothing wrong with criticising Trump, but it's outright dim to do so in such a blatant way in such a sensitive environment.

Trump just got made into his wife and daughter's bitch and every news network is saying he caved on the child separation policies. He's about to go crazy and that crazy will likely slew in the direction of the Russia Investigation. He may even fire Sessions for coming up with the child separation policy.

To the horror of most Republicans in congress since a Constituional Crisis is the last thing they want before the November Election....

I'm sure they also don't want their president to go crazy but nothing can stop that now.

He hasn't been for years?

He's pretty much going to have to fire someone for it; otherwise it might look like it's his fault.

Quote:
Michael Cohen's friend @DonnyDeutsch on what is likely to "come out" of investigation:

- Some "Stormy Daniels things"
- Missing links to "solve the problem with Russia"
At the end of the clip he says that it's "a fantasy" to think there were things Trump was doing that Cohen didn't know about, and that if he were Trump he'd be "very worried".

Well, it would be a rather bold move... Fire Sessions, publically state that its because he was behind the child separation policy (conveniently ignoring all the other Trumpsters that were involved), while privately saying "now I can end the Mueller investigation". Republican congresscritters can look the other way and pretend "oh, Sessions was fired for reasons unrelated to Russia", Trump gets a new AG that ends the investigation, and the republicans and Russians breath a sign of relief, happy in the knowledge that formal investigations into Russian influence into the election will end.

I was thinking the EXACT same thing. I just read that the DOJ is pulling in JAG Corp lawyers to help speed up immigration hearings and deportations.

JAG had a process in Gitmo.
