The Barack Obama Deep State machine is still grinding its gears to bring down Donald Trump.
Anti-Trump forces inside and outside of government are using every tool at their disposal to bring down the President.
And a Barack Obama ally filed this lawsuit that will have Donald Trump up in arms.
Disgraced former FBI agent Peter Strzok has filed a lawsuit to get his old job back.
Strzok claimed the FBI violated his First Amendment rights by leaking his anti-Trump text messages and firing him.
The Daily Caller reports:
Peter Strzok, the former FBI agent fired over anti-Trump text messages, sued the Justice Department and the FBI Tuesday, claiming that he was fired due to political pressure from President Donald Trump.
In the lawsuit, filed against Attorney General William Barr and FBI Director Christopher Wray, Strzok also alleged that his First Amendment rights were violated, as was his privacy due to leaks of his text messages to the media.
“The FBI fired Special Agent Strzok because of his protected political speech in violation of his rights under the First Amendment to the Constitution of the United States,” reads the lawsuit, which seeks back pay and Strzok’s reinstatement to the FBI.
Strzok was a lead investigator on both the Hillary Clinton email investigation and the Trump-Russia probe. As deputy chief of counterintelligence, Strzok opened the FBI’s investigation of the Trump campaign on July 31, 2016.
Strzok was removed from the Mueller investigation when his anti-Trump text messages came to light.
The FBI fired Strzok after the details of his affair with FBI lawyer Lisa Page and the extent of their anti-Trump bias surfaced.
For many Americans, Strzok and Page are the face of the Deep State.
Strzok initially oversaw the FBI’s Russian investigation and assured Page that it was an “insurance policy” against Trump winning the election.
