DOJ settles with former FBI officials over anti-Trump text leak

by ian

The Justice Department has reached a settlement with former FBI officials Peter Strzok and Lisa Page over the leak of private anti-Trump messages.

According to those messages, during the 2016 election, Strzok and Page described Trump as an “idiot” and a “loathsome human” with Strzok vowing to “stop” Trump from getting elected. Both of them were involved in the FBI’s Trump-Russia investigation. Following the leak, Strzok was fired and Page was forced to resign.

The details of the settlement are not known and are still tentative, pending approval from a judge.
