There are reports that Peter Strzok was escorted off FBI headquarters today. The response from his attorney is amazing:
“All of this seriously calls into question the impartiality of the disciplinary process, which now appears tainted by political influence,” a statement from Goelman said.
He said that Strzok “has complied with every FBI procedure, including being escorted from the building as part of the ongoing internal proceedings.” The attorney did not say exactly when Strzok was escorted out.
“Instead of publicly calling for a long-serving FBI agent to be summarily fired, politicians should allow the disciplinary process to play out free from political pressure,” Goelman said. “Our leaders and the public should be very concerned with how readily such influence has been allowed to undermine due process and the legal protections owed to someone who has served his country for so long. Pete Strzok and the American people deserve better.”
Either Goelman has either never read the texts from his client or he is a complete idiot. This reminds me of the definition of “Chutzpah” I got from a Jewish friend. He said: “it is like the guy who murdered his parents and then threw himself on the mercy of the court because he was an orphan.”
That guy probably has a better chance than Peter Strzok.
