The president wrote about “bad players in the FBI & DOJ” in his tweets about the dismissal.
FBI special agent Peter Strzok, who sent personal text messages critical of President Donald Trump and other politicians, including Democrats, has been fired ― and Trump is taking a victory lap of sorts on Twitter.
“Agent Peter Strzok was just fired from the FBI ― finally.” Trump tweeted. “The list of bad players in the FBI & DOJ gets longer & longer.”
The president also used Strzok’s firing to amplify his attempts to discredit the probe into Russian interference in the 2016 election, incorrectly describing Strzok as being “in charge” of the investigation. Robert Mueller removed Strzok from the special counsel shortly after the text messages were disclosed.
Trump seemingly also implied he was responsible for firing Strzok, though the decision was made by the FBI.
Strzok testified before congressional committees in July that some of the August 2016 texts he sent to former FBI lawyer Lisa Page, with whom he was having an affair, were in response to the “horrible, disgusting” comments then-candidate Trump made about the family of a fallen Muslim war hero.
Trump and his supporters, however, argued the texts were evidence of a “deep state” conspiracy to undermine Trump’s presidency.

Finding Uncensored Political News Online
The time was once that we were seriously limited as to the news we received. Newspapers in the old days had to try to offer a balanced perspective – all sides of the story in a quite limited space. Television and radio news had the same limitations – and they had a very short amount of time allotted to cover everything that was going on in the world at any given time. These were not the only limitations either. News sources could only afford to print so many pages and only a select few people were qualified to be reporters or journalists. Now days though, this has changed considerably. With the advent of the internet, we can get our news much faster and there are not nearly as many time and space limitations to contend with. Because of these things, we now have a multitude of political blogs and political news sites to choose from for a daily dose of news and current events.
Nowadays, we can choose from any number of Republican blogs, for example, for our news. With a Republican blog, we are likely to get more new news on Donald Trump than we might get from differently affiliated political news sites. If you want thorough, Republican coverage for “Trump trade war,“ you can probably find it faster on Republican blogs than you can on otherwise affiliated blogs.
Of course, if you prefer to vote non-partisan, that is – not limited to or affiliated with a specific party, there are a number of political news sites out there for you as well. It is still important, especially if you are nonpartisan, to read from as many Republican blogs as you can, as well as political news sites that are affiliated with the other political parties out there. You see, if you are dedicated to any specific political party, you will be limited to that party’s candidates when it comes time to vote so you do not need to worry about what all of the other parties are doing. If you are nonpartisan, however, you can vote for any candidate from any party that you choose – that means that you need to be considerably more informed than someone who is party-affiliated. The best way to be thoroughly informed is to read news from as many political news sites as you can – that will give you exposure to more of the candidates and political parties that are out there as well as more perspectives on all of the issues that are going on in this country.
No matter where your political line might lie, it is always a good plan to gather a variety of information from political blogs or political news sites. At the very least, you will know what your opponents are up to if you read political blogs from parties other than your own. Whether you prefer Republican blogs or not, the important thing is to stay informed to the best of your ability – otherwise, you cannot hope to be an informed and responsible voter!
