Strzok Claims He'll Be Remembered as a 'Patriot' Who Defended From Russia

Disgraced former FBI agent Peter Strzok was a key figure in the Russia investigation, and his anti-Trump bias was more than obvious.
But according to him, he will be remembered as a hero.
During an interview Wednesday on MSNBC’s “Live,” Strzok had the audacity to claim that history will view him and the government agents that worked on the counterintelligence investigation into possible links between the Russian government and Trump campaign officials as “patriots.”
Tur asked, “25 years from now, how does history see you?”
Strzok said, “I think it sees all of us as patriots who were working as hard as we could to defend America against a Russian threat, against a Russian attack on our elections that helped elect the 45th president of the United States.”
Tur also asked Strzok whether he was concerned about the investigation into the origins of the Russia probe, which has been led by U.S. Attorney John Durham.
“You have said that you have not been interviewed in the Durham investigation, presumably, we’re pretty far along into it, if not coming to a close,” Tur said, asking, “Are you concerned now that you haven’t been interviewed and that you might be a target?”
“I didn’t do anything wrong, let alone illegal, nor did I see anybody else that I worked with doing anything that was inappropriate, so I’m not worried about that,” Strzok said.
“It’s particularly concerning when I see last week his deputy, somebody he worked with for decades over a variety of complex investigations, quitting because, if you believe the reporting, the concerns that the investigation had become politically tainted, that it was being rushed for inappropriate political motives,” Strzok added.
Strzok served as the No. 2 counterintelligence analyst at the FBI before being fired and let go from ex-Special Counsel Robert Mueller's team after an internal probe found that he had sent hundreds of anti-Trump text messages to Lisa Page, a former lawyer at the FBI lawyer with whom he was having an affair.
Strzok also sent countless salacious text messages smearing Trump, his supporters, and making a bevy of controversial comments implying he could take action to stop Trump from taking office.
No matter how much Strzok wants to whine, he did this to himself.
Strzok sent countless salacious text messages smearing Trump, his supporters, and making a bevy of controversial comments implying he could take action to stop Trump from taking office.
He called Trump supporters a bunch of ignorant hillbillies; spoke about an "insurance policy" in the case that Trump won the election; mentioned a "secret society" to unseat a duly elected president; and implied that he and others at the bureau would never let Trump be president.
Strzok did something wrong and is facing the consequences for it.
