Foolish libs throw cash at disgraced ex-FBI agent Strzok; Gowdy says stop whining, he did this to himself

Powered by Topple

Former FBI agent Peter Strzok has launched a legal fund and is raking in thousands in donations after getting himself fired.

The former deputy chief of counterintelligence who was fired Friday took to his new Twitter account to express his shock over the “extraordinary outpouring of support” he has received.

Following the decision to terminate his employment after the FBI’s Office of Professional Responsibility investigated him over anti-Trump text messages, a group of supporters set up the “Friends Of Special Agent Peter Strzok” fundraiser.

The GoFundMe page raised an astounding $306,000 in just one day and is still going as mindless liberals throw their cash at the disgraced former agent who used his FBI phone to send anti-Trump texts to Lisa Page, his former co-worker and lover.

Strzok thanked them on Twitter, touting their “shared American ideals.”

And a few supporting tweets generated plenty of eye-rolls from Americans who don’t share Strzok’s kind of “ideals.”

Strzok and his lawyer are claiming his firing from the agency is politically motivated and that the termination came as a surprise.

“We had an agreement with the FBI’s Office for Professional Responsibility, which is the main caretaker for internal discipline, that he would get a 60-day suspension and a demotion. At the last minute, that was countermanded by (FBI Deputy Director David Bowdich) and he was fired. So yeah, we were surprised,” Strzok’s attorney told CNN on Monday.

“We think that they had the power, but not the right to do it,” he added. “In this case, it is hard to reach any conclusion other than that the decision to reverse the OPR’s decision was motivated at least largely by politics.”

House Oversight Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy, who had a contentious exchange with Strzok when he appeared at a House hearing in July, fired back Monday to claims that he and other Republicans, including President Trump, were responsible for Strzok’s firing.

“Peter Strzok didn’t need any help at all demonizing himself. He had that fully covered. This is exactly what they said about Andy McCabe,” Gowdy told Fox News’ Martha MacCallum on “The Story” Monday.

“Of course his lawyer said it was a railroad job,” Gowdy continued, “because the only other option is to say, ‘You know what, my client prejudged two major investigations. He made up his mind that Hillary Clinton was innocent before he interviewed her. He made up his mind that Donald Trump should be impeached before he bothered to interview him and by the way, he did a lot of this on a government phone and he violated FBI policy.”

“He got a lawyer who’s willing to say it’s political,” Gowdy added.

Trump fired off a series of tweets in response to the news that Strzok was finally fired, citing others like Tom Fitton of Judicial Watch in his calls for the Robert Mueller investigation to be shut down.

Twitter users condemned the former agent for his actions and the crowdfunding page established to help him.
