Top FBI investigator steps down from Russia special counsel investigation

August 16, 2017

  It is being reported here that a top investigator, Peter Strzok from a private investigator firm, in Robert Mueller’s special counsel into the Russia hacking scandal has stepped down today. Here is more:

One of the FBI’s top investigators, tapped by special counsel Robert Mueller just weeks ago to help lead the probe of Russian meddling in last year’s presidential election, has left Mueller’s team, sources tell ABC News.

The recent departure of FBI veteran Peter Strzok is the first known hitch in a secretive probe that by all public accounts is charging full-steam ahead. 

It’s unclear why Strzok stepped away from Mueller’s team of nearly two dozen lawyers, investigators and administrative staff. Strzok, who has spent much of his law enforcement career working counterintelligence cases and has been unanimously praised by government officials who spoke with ABC News, is now working for the FBI’s human resources division.

  He is now working in the human resources department but no reason was given for this sudden change. It certainly sounds odd and it almost seems as if he is being punished for some reason but of course that is only speculation on my part. We do not know what happened and I have a feeling Robert Mueller wants to keep it that way.

    I am sure every top notch investigator dreams of a job in HR… perfect career move up the ladder. I think I got it.
