About the Author
PETER STRZOK is the former FBI Deputy Assistant Director of Counterintelligence and a 22-year veteran of the Bureau. He served as one of the original case agents for the Russian couple who inspired the TV series The Americans, and he has investigated a range of other high-profile cases, from WikiLeaks to the 9/11 hijackings to Hillary Clinton’s private email server. He was selected to head the FBI’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential campaign and worked with Robert Mueller as a leader of the FBI’s efforts in creating the Special Counsel’s Office. Also a veteran of the U.S. Army’s 101st Airborne Division, he is the recipient of the FBI’s highest investigative honor, the Director’s Award for Excellence. He lives in Virginia with his family.
“Peter Strzok stands for an FBI that, whatever its faults, serves the nation rather than a political master. G-men have become the Henry Fondas, the Jimmy Stewarts, of the present day—the true believers in an archaic code.”—James Traub, The Atlantic
“His early experiences . . . make for riveting reading . . . Strzok delivers a compelling tale.”—Carlos Lozada, Washington Post
“Aficionados will welcome the insights he is able to provide about key moments in the story . . . For those with a solid background in the Clinton email and Russia imbroglios, Strzok's account obviously is essential.” —Philip Ewing, NPR.org
“A former Army officer, Mr. Strzok . . . rose quickly through [the FBI’s] ranks, earning a reputation within the bureau as one of its most savvy and reliable counterintelligence agents.”—Nicholas Fandos, New York Times
“Compelling . . . [Strzok] offers a window into FBI counter-intelligence work, a defense of his conduct, and a scathing indictment of the president and his administration. Compromised is a significant contribution to the library of Trump tell-alls.”—The Guardian

Strzok's colleagues and a former Trump administration official said that Strzok had never shown any political bias. Riiiiiiiiight. An associate of his says the political parts of the text messages were especially related to Trump's criticism of the FBI's investigation of the Clinton emails. According to FBI guidelines, agents are allowed to have and express political opinions as individuals. Former FBI and DOJ officials told The Hill that it was not uncommon for agents like Strzok to hold political opinions and still conduct an impartial investigation. Riiiiiiiight. Several agents asserted that Mueller had removed Strzok to protect the integrity of the special counsel's Russia investigation. Strzok was not punished following his reassignment. Defenders of Strzok and Page in the FBI said no professional misconduct between them occurred. Riiiiiiiiight.
The Office of Inspector General's report on the FBI's handling of the Clinton email investigation published on June 14, 2018, criticized Strzok's text messages for creating the appearance of impropriety. The report revealed additional texts hostile to Donald Trump by Strzok. In early August 2016, after Page asked Strzok, "[Trump's] not ever going to become president, right? Right?!", Strzok responded: "No. No he won't. We'll stop it." Many Democrats noted that the FBI's actions during the 2016 presidential campaign, such as reopening the Clinton email investigation on the eve of the election and elements within the FBI telling The New York Times that there was no clear link between the Trump campaign and Russia, ended up harming the Clinton campaign and benefiting the Trump campaign.
At a July 12, 2018 public congressional hearing, Strzok denied that the personal beliefs expressed in the text messages impacted his work for the FBI. Strzok explained that a "We'll stop Trump" text message was written late at night and off-the-cuff. Riiiiiiiiight. Strzok said the message "was in no way – unequivocally – any suggestion that me, the FBI, would take any action whatsoever to improperly impact the electoral process for any candidate."
Strzok added that he knew of information during the 2016 presidential campaign that could have damaged Trump but that he never contemplated leaking it.
And look who ended up on the hot seat. Peter Strzok. Any proceeds of this half-baked sham story should go to General Michael Flynn.

Trump is an Enigma and I cannot forecast to you the actions of Trump. It is a riddle, wrapped in misinformation, inside an ignoramus; but perhaps there is a key. That key is Trump's personal self interest.
God help the world if Trump is re-elected in November.
