Peter Strzok Just Got Fired From the FBI After Anti-Trump Texts — He Already Has More Than $40K on GoFundMe

UPDATE [8/14/18, 9:37 a.m. EST]:
The GoFundMe page has now collected $241,765. Additionally, the Twitter profile that shared the GoFundMe link is now verified.

On Friday, the FBI reportedly fired agent Peter Strzok, who became one of the central figures in the controversy surrounding the agency’s bias toward President Donald Trump.

He caught Trump’s and the nation’s attention after politicized texts surfaced between him and his mistress, Lisa Page, who also worked at the FBI:

Strzok’s departure came just weeks after he gave, what some suggested, a condescending testimony to the House Judiciary and Oversight Committees:

Despite the public backlash, however, Strzok appeared to find plenty of support just hours after news of his firing. In a tweet on Monday, an unverified account with his name posted a statement and link to a GoFundMe page:

Within five hours, his page boasted more than $40,000 in donations by more than 1,000 people.

“Peter Strzok, a man who has spent his entire life working to help keep us and our nation safe, has been fired. He needs your help,” the page read.

The page lamented Strzok’s situation and asked for money to pay for his legal fees and lost income:

For the last year, Pete, his work, and his character have been the target of highly politicized attacks, including frequent slanderous statements from President Trump, who actively — and apparently successfully — pressured FBI officials to fire Pete. 

 

All funds raised on this GoFundMe will be put into a trust dedicated to covering Pete’s hefty – and growing – legal costs and his lost income. The trust is being created and details about its management will be shared here as things progress.

In a tweet on Monday, Trump showed he wasn’t as supportive:

“Agent Peter Strzok was just fired from the FBI — finally. The list of bad players in the FBI & DOJ gets longer & longer,” Trump said.
