(Washington Examiner) Trey Gowdy is not impressed with former FBI official Peter Strzok’s lawsuit to get his job back. For starters, the former South Carolina Republican congressman said Strzok failed to name the right person as a defendant.
Strzok filed suit last week against the FBI, Attorney General William Barr, and FBI Director Christopher Wray, claiming he was wrongfully terminated last year because of pressure from President Trump. Strzok also claimed his First Amendment rights had been violated because of “protected political speech.”
“Who fired him? It wasn’t any of the people he sued ironically enough, it was the deputy director of the FBI, a guy named David Bowdich,” Gowdy said Monday on Fox News, where he is now a contributor.
