Trump asks if firing means end to Russian Federation probe

Strzok's lawyer is blaming political pressure over the text messages for Strzok's firing last Friday.

Fitton was referring to Lisa Page, the former Federal Bureau of Investigation attorney with whom Strzok exchanged virulent anti-Trump texts while they were in an extra-marital relationship; fired Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey; fired deputy director Andrew McCabe; and Justice Department official Bruce Ohr.

"They set their own personal judgments about Trump and put their finger on the scale and thumb of the scale of the Clinton email investigation and very aggressively pursued the Trump investigation or the Russian Federation investigation", he said. "Looking at the wrong people".

Amid all of this, Trump has routinely called him out on Twitter.

The texts between Strzok and Lisa Page have ignited conservative corners of the internet for months.

In one exchange, Page wrote Trump "is not ever going to become president, right?"

Strzok was sacked Monday, ending a 22-year career with the bureau, for sending texts to FBI lawyer and girlfriend Lisa Page that were critical of Donald Trump while working on special counsel Robert Mueller's team.

He added that Comey's team was using personal email addresses and sending classified information on them while investigating Hillary Clinton and portraying themselves as heroes.

There is no indication that the probe will be dropped.

Legal experts say since Strzok was removed from Mueller's investigation more than a year ago, his dismissal will have little impact on leads and evidence.

The president also tweeted that the Clinton investigation "was a total fraud on the American public and should be properly redone!" During an appearance on Fox News, Rep. Trey Gowdy argued that, despite having been fired, Strzok received better treatment from FBI investigators than had Donald Trump.
