Special counsel's Russia probe loses top FBI investigator

Source: ABC

One of the FBI's top investigators, tapped by special counsel Robert Mueller just weeks ago to help lead the probe of Russian meddling in last year's presidential election, has left Muellerís team, sources tell ABC News.

The recent departure of FBI veteran Peter Strzok is the first known hitch in a secretive probe that by all public accounts is charging full-steam ahead. Just last week, news surfaced that Mueller's team had executed a search warrant at the Virginia home of Donald Trumpís former campaign manager, Paul Manafort. And the week before that ABC News confirmed Mueller is now using a federal grand jury in Washington, D.C., to collect documents and other evidence.

A spokesman for the special counsel's office declined to comment.

1. Someone in the Cheeto regime got to him.

Extortion, probably.

8. I wouldn't put it past the Lorax's evil twin, but Strzok was moved to HR.

That's where one gets moved when removed from all casework. He was working on the Clinton email probe, and probably came under scrutiny from the IG investigation started in January to review the email probe 'investigation'. This administration is not smart enough to hinder the investigation by removing each of Mueller's resources for weak reasons, etc.

14. Hmm. Next stop: "accidents"?

That must be what Cheeto's boss is advising him to do.

10. Thanks lamp shade and Skittles. This story sort of freaked me out.

I think the survival of our nation is probably resting upon the shoulders of Mueller and the Dream Team.

12. If your post is the first article in LBN on a current news story, it stays.


No need to delete over a GD thread(s) even if it precedes your thread.

16. FBI is being investigated for inserting Russian propoganda into record so

this guy quits because the FBI comes first with him, not country?

Total guess, hope this is wrong, but it would fit the facts. Hope it's just something else personal came up and he needed to leave.
