Peter Strzok sues over firing

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.
