Dem Rep Himes: Trump ‘Engineering a Fear Campaign Within the FBI’

On Monday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “Rachel Maddow Show,” Representative Jim Himes (D-CT) reacted to the firing of FBI agent Peter Strzok by stating that President Trump is “engineering a fear campaign within the FBI” against anyone who will stand up to him or might testify against him. Host Rachel Maddow said Strzok’s lawyer “is suggesting that the reason he was removed was not because of FBI procedure, but because of politics.” Himes responded, “Yeah, no question about it, Rachel. I mean, look at the fact pattern here. The internal disciplinary unit at the FBI recommended that Peter Strzok be demoted and suspended for 60 days. That was set aside to fire the man. Remember back to the firing of Andrew McCabe, who, the night before he was to qualify for his first pension, is fired. Remember that the president admitted that he fired Jim Comey because of the Russia pressure, as he put it. It is very clear that this president is engineering a fear campaign within the FBI, saying, anybody who is going to stand up against me, anybody who might testify against me, their career will suffer. … I don’t know if this is Director Wray who is coordinating

Dem Rep Cicilline: Strzok ‘Being Treated Unfairly’ – Should Have Been Suspended and Demoted

On Monday’s broadcast of CNN’s “Situation Room,” Representative David Cicilline (D-RI) argued that former FBI agent Peter Strzok isn’t being treated fairly and should have been suspended for 60 days and demoted instead of being fired. Cicilline also called for oversight hearings to determine whether Strzok’s firing was politically influenced. Cicilline said, “I think everyone should be concerned that this president continues to try to influence an ongoing criminal and counterintelligence investigation. He’s been attempting to undermine the individuals leading the investigation, the conclusions that they’ve reached. But the — Peter Strzok just is the most recent example. Now, let’s remember, FBI agents are allowed to have personal opinions, but they’re required to set aside those personal opinions and make judgments based on the law and the evidence. That was not only the testimony of Peter Strzok, it was the conclusion of the inspector general, who did a very lengthy investigation, lots of interviews, a thorough examination of documents. And he concluded that there was no evidence that Peter Strzok’s personal opinions in any way affected his judgment in this investigation. And as a consequence, when it was referred to for disciplinary action, the Office of Professional Responsibility said that he ought to be suspended
