Trump takes a victory lap about belated Strzok firing, but he asks one serious question …

President Donald Trump responded to the news Monday that FBI counterintelligence agent Peter Strzok was fired, tweeting “finally” as he questioned whether the Russian collusion investigation will now be dropped — albeit in his own colorful way.

“Agent Peter Strzok was just fired from the FBI – finally,” the president tweeted. “The list of bad players in the FBI & DOJ gets longer & longer. Based on the fact that Strzok was in charge of the Witch Hunt, will it be dropped? It is a total Hoax. No Collusion, No Obstruction – I just fight back!”

Strzok, who was involved in an extramarital affair with FBI attorney Lisa Page, was removed from the investigation by special Counsel Robert Mueller, along with Page, after anti-Trump text messages were discovered between the two.

One such exchange mentioned an “insurance policy” against Trump being elected president, and another featuring Strzok saying, “We’ll stop it.”

The agent later testified before Congress that his bias did not cloud his judgement as an FBI agent.

In addition to the Mueller probe being dropped, Trump also said the investigation of Hillary Clinton’s private email server should be reopened — Strzok also oversaw this probe.

“Just fired Agent Strzok, formerly of the FBI, was in charge of the Crooked Hillary Clinton sham investigation. It was a total fraud on the American public and should be properly redone!” Trump said in a second tweet.

Meanwhile, you can expect the media to be all over Strzok’s termination and the fact that it was a departure from established practice, according to Strzok’s lawyer, Aitan Goelman.

Conspiracy theories are already flowing from the Trump Derangement Syndrome Crowd:

Not that there wasn’t plenty of support on the right for the agent being canned:

And you just know this social media user is spot on in his analysis that CNN and MSNBC “are already in a bidding war” for Strzok’s next job.
