Kirsters Baish| As we reported on Monday, leftist FBI agent Peter Strzok was fired from the bureau this past Friday, months after a plethora of anti-Trump text messages exchanged between Strzok and his mistress/then-colleague Lisa Page were uncovered. Strzok’s termination was confirmed by his lawyer yesterday morning.
It wasn’t long after news broke of Strzok’s termination that he opened up a brand new Twitter account and began sending out links to his newly created GoFundMe page. The page’s goal is set at $150,000. The most shocking part is just how many people have donated. As I continue to click on the link, the donated amount is steadily rising. At 8:32 a.m. on Tuesday (currently) the amount raised sits at $227,938.
Jennifer Kay, a spokeswoman for Peter Strzok’s attorney, Aitan Goelman, confirmed that the Twitter account was indeed Strzok’s personal account, as reported by the Daily Caller.
Peter Strzok tweeted, “Deeply saddened by this decision. It has been an honor to serve my country and work with the fine men and women of the FBI.”

Below is a screenshot posted by the Gateway Pundit of the GoFundMe with a caption reading, “Support for FBI Veteran Pete Strzok.”
Goelman slammed the FBI after Strzok’s termination.
The Gateway Pundit writes, “Peter Strzok and his lover FBI lawyer Lisa Page sent each other thousands of text messages which was discovered by Inspector General Horowitz. In what is believed to be one of the most damning text exchange between the FBI lovebirds was a discussion about an ‘insurance policy’ to keep Trump out of office.”
“I want to believe the path you threw out for consideration in Andy’s office…that there’s no way [Trump] gets elected…but I’m afraid we can’t take that risk,” Strzok wrote in a text message to Lisa Page on August 15, 2016. He was referencing Andrew McCabe.
“It’s like an insurance policy in the unlikely event you die before you’re 40,” Strzok continued.
It didn’t take long for President Donald Trump to come out and comment on Strzok’s handling of the Hillary Clinton private server probe.
Strzok’s new Twitter account was published on August 3rd. At the time that the Gateway Pundit reported on it, there was only one tweet posted from the account.
The former FBI agent “liked” 14 tweets. One was from liberal actress/comedian Rosie O’Donnell. Another tweet was from anti-Trump pundits.
One tweet that was liked by the new Twitter account came from anti-Trump Hollywood actor Mark Hamill. Hamill was attacking the President, calling him an “illegitimate president.” He inserted a Russian flag emoji in the tweet. The Gateway Pundit explains it was meant “to insinuate Trump is a puppet of the Russian government.”
Mark Hamill tweeted, “As complicit treason-weasels in #GOP continue to demagogue our justice system for “another victory notch in Putin’s belt & another milestone in our enemies’ campaign to tear America apart”-the UK welcomes our illegitimate “President”🇷🇺 to their country.🇬🇧”
It’s obvious that Peter Strzok has and always has had a bias against President Donald Trump. The FBI made the right decision in terminating him… too bad they took so long to do it.
