Disgraced FBI Agent Peter Strzok, who had a defining role in two of the biggest politically-tinged investigations in the Bureau’s history, was fired on Friday in a move that most observers can only say was long overdue.

Strzok, who was one of the lead investigators in both the Hillary Clinton email case and the Trump/Russia “collusion” case, turned into a household name last year when it was revealed that he was exchanging anti-Trump text messages with his FBI lover, attorney Lisa Page. This revelation came to a stunning peak when one particular exchange was published showing Page asking Strzok if Trump was really going to become president.

“No,” replied Strzok at the time. “We won’t let [that happen.]”

By all accounts, Strzok’s 22-year career was distinguished and unblemished right up to the 2016 election and the twin investigations into the two major presidential candidates. But it was in these investigations, and all of their problematic biases, that Strzok’s commitment to ethics and law came under sharp scrutiny. After James Comey was fired, Strzok was asked to join Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s team in a continuation of his duties on the Trump/Russia investigation. But he was quickly removed from the team once Mueller caught wind of his texts with Page. More than six months later, the first of those texts became available to Congress…and then to the public.

Strzok testified in front of the Senate earlier this summer in a remarkable hearing. The agent was extraordinarily arrogant and disdainful in front of Republican senators who merely wanted to get to the bottom of one simple question: How far had Strzok been willing to go to keep Donald Trump from becoming the President of the United States? Strzok dodged many of the questions posed to him, including several that inquired about the origins of the Trump/Russia investigation. The exact impetus for that remains a mystery to this day.

Strzok’s personal attorney, Aitan Goelman, released a statement saying that the public should be concerned for some reason that the FBI fired a man who disgraced the badge in such a high-profile fashion.

“This decision should be deeply troubling to all Americans,” the lawyer said.

Well, we’re sure it will be “deeply troubling” to plenty of Democrats (some of whom shamefully applauded Strzok at the hearing previously mentioned), but we know at least one American was thrilled to see him relieved of his duties.

“Agent Peter Strzok was just fired from the FBI – finally,” President Trump wrote on Twitter. “The list of bad players in the FBI & DOJ gets longer & longer. Based on the fact that Strzok was in charge of the Witch Hunt, will it be dropped? It is a total Hoax. No Collusion, No Obstruction – I just fight back!”
