Exclusive: Controversial FBI agent co-wrote initial draft of explosive Comey letter reopening Clinton email probe
Emails obtained by CNN show the FBI agent at the center of a Capitol Hill storm played a key role in a controversial FBI decision that upended Hillary Clinton's campaign just days before the 2016 election: the letter to Congress by then-FBI Director James Comey announcing the bureau was investigating newly discovered Clinton emails.
The new revelation about FBI agent Peter Strzok comes as Republicans accuse him of being sympathetic to Clinton while seeking to undermine Donald Trump during the heat of the 2016 campaign season. Ref. CNN.

FBI fires Peter Strzok, agent who sent anti-Trump text messages in 2016. Strzok had helped lead the investigations into Russia’s interference in the 2016 presidential election and into Clinton’s use of a private email server while she was secretary of state. Last summer, he was removed from the Russia inquiry by special counsel Robert Mueller when the Justice Department discovered texts between Strzok and former FBI attorney Lisa Page disparaging then-candidate Donald Trump in 2016.
